women* deserve better than arrogant asshats telling them what is and is not right for their own lives.

You do realize this is an organization run by women, right??

yes. i do. and do you have some sort of point?

You do realize that women are capable of saying and doing things that hurt other women, right? Such as:
Opposing abortions that are medically necessary to save a woman’s life.
Saying that speaking about rape as a negative is offensive to people who were conceived by rape.
Refusing to support contraception because they don’t want to alienate anti-contraception donors.

Kevin Drum of Mother Jones has a fun and exciting hypotheticalfor pro-choicers, one that, clearly, no one has thought of before: 

Basically, the deal is (a) abortions up to, say, 22 weeks or so, would be legal and easily available, (b) late-term abortions would be completely illegal unless the life of the mother were clearly and directly threatened, and (c) this put an end to the whole issue. Everyone agrees to accept this as the status quo going forward.
Obviously this is pie in the sky. But I’m still curious. If it were on the table, how many of my [pro-choice] readers would agree to it?
The level of ignorance is just absolutely astounding.
It’s like they don’t listen to what pro-choice people want at all. It’s like they don’t know or even care about how abortion actually works and what the laws actually are.
OR…

Drum brings it up because, in an attempt to confuse them with pre-viability abortions,anti-choicers are raising a fussover post-viability abortions. That’s irritating, and we’re not fooled. However, I will still answer his hypothetical. If you toss “health of the mother” into his pile of acceptable reasons for post-viability abortions (which are more realistically assumed to be around 24 weeks instead of 22), you’ve just described the “compromise” position established inRoe v. Wadethat has been the law of the land for 40 years now. Presumably, pro-choicers are perfectly happy withRoe, which would be why we argued it in court and have defended it for decades.

Now onto why the hypothetical is destructive, as well as silly. Asking pro-choicers if we would accept what amounts to Roe plus funding and better availability than we have now—as if that wasn’t already our loud and proud and frequently stated preference—serves no other purpose than to distort the debate. Specifically, it implies that late term abortions are more common than they are.

Fox News tackles NBA’s Jason Collins’ coming out as the first out gay athlete pretty much exactly how you’d expect- by completely ignoring it.

yes and every other news outlet tackles gosnell, a baby murdering maniac, exactly how you’d expect. by completely ignoring it. Pretty sure infant massacres are more important than a gay athlete. but that’s just me. 

Fox News covered the Gosnell trial THE LEAST of the top 3 cable news networks when the story broke while complaining about the “mainstream media” ignoring it.

BOOM.

Without a clear message of ‘This is what it means to be pro-life,’ then we’re doomed. Do we want to make the pill illegal? Yes. Do we want to make the IUD illegal? Yes. The morning after pill? Yes. The patch? Yes. Anything that’s a human pesticide, they all have to be made illegal. A woman has to go to jail if she kills her baby.

So, pro-life = pro-fertilized egg personhood, anti-woman personhood. 

anti-health care

anti-women’s autonomy

and anti-human rights

Another important point about the Gosnell case…

…is that anti-abortion stigma and harassment is another reason why women went to him.

She said she first went to Planned Parenthood in downtown Philadelphia but was frightened away by protesters.

"The picketers out there, they just scared me half to death," Johnson, now 30, recalled this week.

Someone sent her to Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, at the Women’s Medical Society, saying anti-abortion protesters wouldn’t be a problem there.

When you make the sidewalks unbearable for women seeking abortions don’t act surprised when they turn to the backalley.

Let’s get one thing straight here: There is no pro-choice coverup of the Kermit Gosnell case. We talked about it. We reported on it. Nobody supports things like this and this is exactly the kind of thing that happens when you limit access to and education about abortion so much that women think they have nowhere else to go.

So now I’ve seen a pro-lifer threaten genital mutilation to a woman who had an abortion.

So… by that logic, my cousin who had 9 miscarriages before giving birth had 9 children who all died. The next time I talk to her I’ll bring up that she was a mother this whole time and ask her where the burial grounds are for all her dead babies.
And then I’m gonna tell her she’s a murder because she should have tried harder to have not been a high risk pregnancy and consider bringing her up on charges.
Then let her know all those little babies are in hell because the weren’t baptized before they died.
Playing by your rules pro-lifers.

Judging by the completely blacked-out background and the perfect lighting I’m going to have to guess that it’s a little late to “protect” this embryo from anything.

So speaking of mental health…

As you may or may not have noticed I’m not around a lot. I’ve been going through some stuff and I haven’t had it in me to spend time arguing on the internet so I’m not really doing much with this blog right now. I’ve got enough on my plate emotionally as it is.

There are a lot of other great pro-choice blogs on Tumblr and maybe I’ll make a list, but for right now I think that if you’re looking for a blog about pro-lifers saying terrible things, your best bet is antichoicescreencaps. Check it out!

In the meantime I’ve got a lot going on so I’m going to continue not being here very often.

What are your views on gender selective abortion? In China and India, girls are not the preferred gender, because they are not,"financially attractive." Being a girl, I just think it is sad.

Yeah, it is sad. I don’t think it would happen if people respected women’s autonomy more and treated them as full persons instead of as vessels that make people.

I saw one one pro-life blog the argument that it is hypocritical for someone to claim ownership of their uterus and then ask for their related healthcare to be paid for. Thoughts?

My thoughts are basically “What?”.

If it were any other body part they wouldn’t say anything like that.

Hi, do you hate all pro-lifers and think they are sexist to women? I consider myself personally pro-life. I believe in the right of life for the fetus, but I have no right to tell a woman what she can or cannot do with her body. I sympathize with these women (I am a woman and proud.) and accept that I may never understand what it is like for them to go through situations like being pregnant from a rape. What did you think of the Handmaid"s Tale movie? You recommended it so I'll read. Thank you.
