comicist abortion and then there's this asshole submission
High Quality »

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.

comicist submission assholes in the submission box
High Quality »

Justify it as you wish, saying it’s “just a clump of cells”, a “parasite”.  However, it’s hard to deny that the embryo or fetus is indeed a human life, just less developed, less mature, and fighting to grow and live.  It is both an independent entity from the mother with a life & brain of its own … and yet at the same time it does need the mother to live.  It didn’t invade the mother like some parasite seeking a host, but it came to life inside the mother.  While it came to life inside the mother, should the mother really be able to own this human life - to kill & dispose of it as she wills?  Obviously, our society answers that with a “yes”.

Oh my god, did you actually put this into my submission box?

It’s not about whether it’s “just a clump of cells” or not. I don’t care if it’s a fully developed adult in there—nothing has the right to use someone’s body without their consent. If it’s in my body, if it depends wholly on my body to survive, it’s not independent from my body.

And just, wow. The nerve of you to put this filth into my submission box. Hang on, followers, there’s actually more to come from this guy.

and then there's this asshole submission

please read my theory on what an abortion is

Hi, can you please read my theory on what an abortion is. It is from a different view point than either pro life or pro choice - www.ethicsandabortion.com Thanks.

MOD ADDITION:

There are only three types of women when looking at the abortion issue.

1. Women who are not pregnant.
2. Women who are pregnant and have an abortion.
3. Women who are pregnant and do not have an abortion.

There are no other type of women than these three.

… I hate you.

pro-choice submission abortion

Plain and simple

submission from hausofmyzaree

Even if you grant an embryo or fetus personhood, no person has the right to use another person’s body as sustenance against their will. Are we all murderers if someone needs a blood transplant, or a spare kidney, and we did not provide it? It’s interesting that you don’t see pro-lifers putting their energy (and money) into a new way to abort that spares the life and grows it separate for the mother. Then again, you see so few of them adopting too.

Thanks for the submission! Very well put.

abortion propaganda anti-choice pro-life submission

submission from bluefactories: 
[Image: a screenshot of a facebook share on ‘Keep Ireland Pro-Life’, showing a photo of Mars. Top text: “Forget MARS.” Bottom text: “Discover life in the WOMB.” Sourced from ‘Liveaction.org’]
…. “Forget space exploration, WOMEN CAN GIVE BIRTH!!!” …. ? As if being interested in either of them is mutually exclusive? What?
Also, this family member of mine has never been to Ireland, has no friends or family in Ireland and really has no business to advocate the denial of basic healthcare rights to a group of people that she has no involvement with.
Asjdkhfjsdhkfjksdhfjksdhf. WHAT. Thought you might be interested in this baffling piece of propaganda. :|

LOLOLOLOL. Oh god. As usual, anti-choicers throw science aside for their misogyny.

propaganda anti-choice pro-life submission
High Quality »

submission from lafillemange:

[Image:  a photo of an infant wearing a shirt that says, “Now that I’m safe I’m PRO-CHOICE”. The photo has a black frame around it, and on the bottom of the frame reads, “BEING A LIBERAL IS SIMPLE. Once you can kill babies, the rest is a cinch.” It is credited to www.politifake.org. End description]

I saw this today and I just felt sickened. I know that the anti-choicers need lies and emotional manipulations since that’s really all they have, but it’s just so ignorant and sickening.

sanityscraps: BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. “Killing babies.” Good one, antis.

Oh wait, you’re serious.

abortion propaganda pro-choice anti-choice pro-life superbowl submission

submission from lonesiekarp: Saw this and thought you might help get the word out.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/22/us/super-bowl-abortion-ads/index.html?iref=allsearch

because regardless of how you feel about the whole debate, bringing up gory fetus pictures has no business in my wholesome football

Oh, Jesus. Might as well put this out here again. Lying fuckers. Most of those “photos” are doctored in some way, anyway.

abortion pro-choice abolitionist slavery racism submission

booksnbrains submitted: Abolitionist

I like your blog, but I can’t agree with you on using the term “abolitionist” as being inherently racist. The term may be most associated with the anti-slavery abolitionist movement, but the word exists outside that context. There has been abolitionist movements against monarchies and unjust practices before the American slavery one. I agree people who use the word now definitely are using it because it’s a heavy word, but if you feel strongly that something is wrong, of course you’d use it.

That’s not to say that because you’re willing to use the word that you must be right, that red image is ridiculous, as is the “pro-life” movement. But it doesn’t make you inherently racist to use the word. That’s all.

Also, not a dig at you, this blog rocks and gives me my anger fix when I need it. That’s why I follow.

Yes, it is true that abolitionist movements existed before the anti-American slavery one, however most people don’t know about them within the “abolitionist” context specifically. That red image depends on people’s knowledge of the American anti-slavery movement in particular. It is meant to evoke mental images of African American slavery and appropriate them to abortion, which is pretty racist.

That doesn’t mean the people doing it are meaning to be racist. It doesn’t even mean that anti-choicers who use this argument are racist at all—though they very well might be. Most likely, they probably don’t realize how problematic it is to appropriate the term.
