#abortion rights

betterthanabortion:

Assuming the fetus pictured is a female, both of these people possess uteri. Does “no uterus, no opinion” still apply? Are you in favor of denying the smaller person her reproductive rights simply because she is temporarily dependent upon her own mother?
Women of every size and developmental ability deserve so much better than abortion. Will you fight for deadly discrimination, or equality?

Supporting the ban of abortion isn’t equality.  You’re literally putting someone else’s rights over another’s.  Banning abortion isn’t equality for the fetus.  It’s a special privilege.  And it forces the actual person to remain pregnant against their will—which is considered torture.
And the thing about fetuses?  They can’t make choices.  They do not feel. They do not think.  They are not sentient.
Way to pretend that you even care about sexism.  Your beliefs and fallacious logic only perpetuates it.

House Passes “Let Women Die” Bill After Extremely Depressing Debate

What the fuck

North Carolina Republican and Unrepentant Asshole Virginia Foxx ignored the living, breathing woman in front of her and appealed to her stalwart pro-fetus stance in a confusing ramble in response,


For my colleagues across the aisle who say that this is a misogynist  bill, nobody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have.  Fifty percent of the unborn babies that are being aborted are females.  So the misogyny comes from those that promote the killing of unborn  babies. That’s where the misogyny comes in, Madame Speaker.

That’s your argument for putting the life of a fetus ahead of an adult woman who may have children at home? Fuck you.

women on waves founder, rebecca gomperts. women on waves was created to bring reproductive health services, particularly non-surgical abortion services, to women in countries with restrictive abortion laws. when wow comes to a country, women make appointments, and are taken on board the ship. the ship then sails out to international waters, where dutch laws are in effect on board the ship) to perform medical abortions.
in this photo she has just cut the rope that a sea police boat had tied to their ship to try and drag them away from the port.

DOPE.

I read about this years ago and thought how great it was. Now I wish there was something similar for women in the US.

Last time I checked, “pro-life” didn’t mean harm others in the defense of it. Maybe that is why so many people are upset here.

(also known as “Cool pro-life story, bros!”)

  • 7 murders
  • 17 attempted murders
  • 52 bombings
  • 180 arsons
  • 89 invasions
  • 1,211 incidents of vandalism
  • 1,341 trespasses
  • 100 acid attacks
  • 655 anthrax threats
  • 146 cases of assault and battery
  • 375 death threats
  • 3 kidnappings
  • 96 burglaries

This pisses me off.

This is just intended to make pro-lifers look bad.

If there was a post similar to this, except it was with homosexuals, people would be enraged.

But because it’s pro-lifers, people don’t give a fuck.

Pro-lifers do a pretty great job of making themselves look bad. How can you compare gay people to pro-lifers? What possible parallel can you draw other than the fact that they’re a politicized group? Is there some secret history of gay people killing straight people and bombing maternity wards? No.

Pro-lifers committed all of these crimes, and that pisses ME off. 1973 was when women got the legal right to choose. Pro-lifers are directly and violently assaulting that legal right. So, sorry if it hurts your feelings that someone is acknowledging what they’re up to, but seriously, ALL OF THIS HAPPENED.

“A nurse practitioner at an Idaho Planned Parenthood called a local Walgreen’s pharmacy to fill a prescription for Methergine, a medicine used to prevent or control bleeding of the uterus following childbirth or an abortion. The pharmacists refused to fill the prescription unless the nurse told her whether or not the patient had an abortion. Because of patient confidentiality laws, the nurse refused to disclose that information, and asked for a referral to another pharmacy. The pharmacist hung up.”

Fuck fuck fuck.

Dear me, save us from the right. The only drugs pharmacists routinely refuse to fill have to do with abortion! How is this still okay?! It’s not like there are pharmacists refusing to fill allergy and antibiotic scripts!
