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.
