There’s something pleasant about watching a bunch of smart, angry people tear a forced-birth (aka “prolife”) moron to shreds.
Warning: swearing, stupidity, and general asshatery.
Here’s a little taste if you’re too tired to go read the whole thing.
So let me see if I understand you. To use your own analogy…
You want to “liberate” an unthinking, unfeeling, damn near inaminate bunch of tissue (fetus) by forcing them into life by means of a woman who doesn’t want them.
But you want to send a contributing, intelligent, sentient person (woman) back to the days of slavery by denying them jurisdiction over their own bodies?
Good to know you have your priorities straight.
Thank you so much. You’ve proven two things.
1) You have your head irrevocably stuck UP your ass.
2) You have no interest in opening your goddamn eyes and moving them away from your narrow perspective. You’re very quick to point out the incivility against you while continuing to ignore the arguments posed to you. (But I know why–it’s because you can’t defend your position against them. It’s okay. You chose the weak side.)
Fetuses shouldn’t have more rights than a full-grown human being. EVER. No fucking clump of cells is more valuable than I am, and if that’s your position, there isn’t enough FUCK YOU in the world to cover it.
Society does not need more children; but it does need more loved children. Quite literally, we cannot afford unloved children – but we pay heavily for them every day. There should not be the slightest communal concern when a woman elects to destroy the life of her thousandth-of-an-ounce embryo. But all society should rise up in alarm when it hears that a baby that is not wanted is about to be born.
O.k., let me get this straight – You believe that it is NOT o.k. to abort after 3 months, because at this magical made up point in the fetus’s development it is now a human being with rights. So to abort would be murder.
However, if the momma was raped, then it is o.k. to kill off this completely innocent life at 4, 5, or 6 months (after this mystical transformation point that you made up happens) because daddy was a bad man and mommy might be a little emotionally stressed to have and care for Johnny or jill.
Did I get that right? It’s o.k. to kill off babies if dad was an asshole? Because that’s what I get every time I hear the rape exception clause.
And if that’s true, for most childfree women, it would be just as traumatic to have the damn spawn as it would be for a raped woman who under other circumstances wanted kids. So that doesn’t count as emotional trauma, even though the thing is just as unwanted and emotionally upsetting?
The lack of logic here, it burns.
I also love how the forced-birther keeps babbling about how he’s an engineer and very logical, but his arguments keep boiling down to morality and gray areas. Sheesh.
