comicist abortion and then there's this asshole submission

A simple text illustration describing pro-life vs pro-choice

Right. Riight. Except for the life of the pregnant person. Or the life of the children they might already have thinly spread resources to care for. Or the life of the fetus you save after it’s born and its rights to be fed, clothed, housed, and schooled. Or the rights of that fetus should it later turn out to be queer or disabled.

Just in case you missed the memo, pregnant people also have heartbeats. We people who can get pregnant are people too. Fully developed people with rights. I mean, even corpses have more bodily autonomy than we do in this society. You need consent to legally harvest organs from a corpse. You don’t, apparently, need to consent to having all your organs used for about ten months at a time.

I'm disappointed because I thought this was a pro-life blog. Are not all members of the human species considered "human persons"? What is a living human being that is not also a human person considered to be? Are blacks non-persons? Are Jews non-persons?

What? How could you possibly think we’d use the word “propaganda” in a positive context? This blog hasn’t been active for a while, but the entire purpose of it is to call out PROPAGANDA—that is, falsehoods and fallacies—from the anti-choice side of the fence. Hardly anyone in history has actually assumed positivity from the word “propaganda.” I mean, what were you really expecting?

Second off, no. Nothing is comparable to abortion. Racism is not. Anti-semitism is not. And when we’re talking about genocide, it generally involves sentient beings who are physiologically autonomous and fetuses belonging to parents who wanted to birth the child. Now, I’m Jewish here, so you really need to shut the fuck up about anti-semitism. To quote Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, “Those who compare abortion to the Holocaust do not know what the Holocaust was.”

Thirdly, it doesn’t matter whether the fetus is a person or not. It’s a largely philosophical argument that has no relevance here. You know who’s definitely a person? THE ONE WHO’S PREGNANT, WHOM YOU NEVER SEEM TO CONSIDER. No one and nothing has the right to use a person’s body without their consent—not a man, not a woman, not an unborn fetus or embryo. And don’t you dare start lecturing me about consent; I’m a sexual assault survivor, so I know that well enough already, thank you very much.

h-0-l-y-s-h-i-t abortion pro-choice
I gotta ask, mostly because I'm a bit confused and would like to see if my line of thinking is...wrong? Do you think men have NO right to be upset at all if a woman aborts the pregnancy he helped make? Now, I do firmly believe it is a woman's right and if she wishes to abort the man does have no say because she is the one carrying it. But, I've always been under the impression that it's a bit ignorant to insist it shouldn't effect men at all. (cont)

For example, a good friend of mine shared his experience with an ex-girlfriend of his who aborted her pregnancy. He told me at the time it did upset him deeply, and he would have loved to be a father, and that every now and again (even though it’s been a few years) it does still upset him a but he did understand it was still her choice. That he wasn’t the one carrying it so he did have no say. But I mean, it did make me re-evaluate my views on the whole “it shouldn’t effect men period.”

Of course not, men are entitled to feel however they happen to feel. I mean, it’s psych 101 that you have no control over your emotions. They just have to be able to reconcile their feelings with what is ultimately not their decision to make. Het couples should discuss these things before having sex, to be honest, so that both parties know what might happen and what they might have to be prepared to deal with, especially if the guy thinks it’ll affect them so deeply.

privilege abortion abortion debate

Dear pro-choicers,

York University has published an article in their student newspaper discussing ‘privilege’ and whether a man should tell a woman whether she can have an abortion or not.

I’m sure our followers could add a few insights to the comment section. This man needs educating.

Join the debate!

He also called the female sex a “bunch of women”.

Some local churches are organizing a pro-life protest in my hometown, a very small town. Last time it was shocking unrealistic pictures of abortions and false "facts". I want to organize a counter protest with the REAL scientific information with about 10-20 others. Do you have any suggestions of what to put on our signs and what to say?

Abortionaccess.info used to have a great page showing pictures of actual aborted fetuses, and how they look nothing like anti-choicers’ doctored photos, but I think the website’s been taken down. Ugh. This page cites the very source I’m looking for. And it looks like I lost the photos if I ever saved them, which makes this even more frustrating. Google makes it really hard to find accurate medical photos of abortions. But seriously, logic—how many people would actually agree to have their aborted embryo photographed for propaganda that shames them into not being human beings?

abortion information medicine

what happens in an abortion? is there a pill to stop it at 2 weeks etc? I'm not pregnant.

There are many different types of abortion, anon. For an early pregnancy, up to nine weeks, the RU-486 pill can be an effective abortion method.

For later pregnancies, abortions have to be surgical. Depending on how far into the pregnancy the person is, there are different types, but the most common type of surgical abortion is vacuum aspiration, done between 3 and 12 weeks. This is essentially numbing and dilating the cervix, and then sucking out the embryo with a cannula.

This is a superior method to dilation and curettage, which is the method anti-choicers like to tout around as the most common and among the most barbaric (to which I endlessly side-eye). This method involves dilating the cervix and scraping out the embryo and uterine lining.

Later than 12 weeks, abortions are usually only done for medical reasons. In fact, the vast majority of abortions happen before 12 weeks. The most common methods are:
