re: this post

Getting an abortion is not synonymous with being raped. I shouldn’t even have to tell you that.  You did an amazing job with revealing how little you know about both common decency and abortion though.  So good job.

(I’ve already eaten tacos, had beer, and donated but I’m gonna do it as often as I can now.)

Your URL is offensive. Just because people are pro-life and you are not, doesn't mean you should tell them that they should "shut the f*ck up." Freedom of speech means that they have every right to share their opinion, whether or not you agree.

Freedom of speech actually means that you are within your rights to speak or publish what you believe without the Government punishing you.

I’m not the Government.  I can tell people to shut the fuck up if I want.  Because freedom of speech, you know~

hahahahahahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaa FREEDOM O SPEECH IS A TWO WAY STREET. Look at these fools whining about a tumblr url, I don’t see them defending the protesters in Ferguson who are being denied their right to assemble, or you know, their right to live. OH WAIT I FORGOT it’s cause prolifers are racist and sexist as fuck.

^boom.  Awesome call out on the cognitive dissonance.

Is anon forgetting that you have freedom of speech too? And telling people with oppressive opinions to shut up is totally within your rights? Lol, Jesus Christ. - Paige

^^Exactly.  When people cry about freedom of speech, they usually forget that it’s not one-sided.

I am uncomfortable when we are not about me?

Oh, yeah.  It’s super gross how anti-choicers have to constantly make it about themselves and fetuses.  The Ferguson protests are about actual people who are suffering under systemic injustices.  Stfu, pro-lifers.

Yup, the use of instillation abortion has drastically declined and fallen out of favor especially when safer methods are available.  Medical procedures improving with time.  Go figure, huh?
anonymous:
Yup! Looked into it.  I don’t know if it has to be before nine weeks.  From what I read, it was an abortion ban that forces doctors to check for viability at any point, and pending that status, an abortion would be illegal with the exception being risk to personal health or to prevent any major impairment on bodily functions.  And I also read that this bill would also remove the exception of psychological trouble, which I think is also extremely disgusting.  It’s a very unnecessary law that puts more obstacles and risks between patients and their doctors.  It’s also a waste of taxpayer money.

(TRIGGER WARNING: Rape, Suicide, Violence) Suicidal Rape Victim Denied Abortion at 8 Weeks, Forced to Have Caesarian Birth at 25 Weeks

A young woman forced to give birth by caesarean section after being denied an abortion in Ireland became pregnant after she was raped, a friend has said.

The woman, who cannot be named, was refused an abortion when she demanded a termination at eight weeks, saying she was suicidal.

The case is the first proper test of Ireland’s 2013 Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act, which allows for abortions in Irish hospitals in limited circumstances.

Those include the woman’s life being in danger if the pregnancy went to full term and where she is suicidal in such instances as rape and incest…

A friend of the woman told the Irish Times the woman, an immigrant, became pregnant after being raped in her own country. She discovered she was pregnant a few weeks after arriving in Ireland this year and told her friends: “I do not want this. I am too young to be a mother. I am not ready.”

Her friend said the woman was not given information on how to obtain an abortion, and as the pregnancy continued she became increasingly distressed.

The friend said the woman was advised to go to a local doctor, which she did in mid-July. The GP gave her a letter for a hospital, the friend said, and she was admitted. She was told in hospital on 22 July that an abortion was not possible as the pregnancy was too far advanced.

Her friend confirmed that the woman had first asked for a termination when she was eight weeks pregnant.

After the woman threatened to go on hunger strike to protest against the decision, local health authorities obtained a court order to deliver the baby prematurely – at about 25 weeks, according to some reports – to ensure its safety. The infant has been placed in care.

Oh, wow.  You really went there.  You used your own brother to put yourself on some pedestal labeled “Don’t Call Me an Ableist! I Took Care of My Disabled Brother!”  And that’s so messed up.  It really is.
Are you not even aware that many caretakers can be horribly ableist?
It’s similar to that weak defense: “I’m not racist, I have a PoC friend!/I’m not a misogynist, I have a sister!” There should be some law out there, like Lewis’ Law.  When you have to defend your ableist/racist/homophobic/misogynist statements with “I’m not _____, because I have a ________ ________” then you’ve only proven your accuser’s point.  I’m sure it already exists and it’s on TVTropes or something.  If not, I dub it Le’s Law.
Being pro-choice doesn’t diminish or stop anyone from celebrating motherhood.  (Read back to my response — also make sure to check out some of the replies/reblogs, there are some good points made.)
Again, I called out your comparison between disabled folks and fetuses as a logical fallacy and even explained why.  It’s literally a false analogy.  Just stop.  It’s also super ableist.  So, seriously.  Stop.  Address my points before attempting a circular argument. (Seriously, read back to the response!)
You want pregnant people and fetuses viewed equally.  That’s not possible.  If you give the fetus the “right to life” then you are taking away the pregnant person’s right to their own body and sometimes the right to their own life.  You are saying that it’s okay for a fetus to use someone else’s body for several months and that’s it’s okay to force someone to go through childbirth against their will for the fetus (both of these things are considered torture).  No one on Earth currently has this right.  We can’t even do it to corpses legally.  But you’re asking that we should be able to do this to pregnant people or people who have the ability to get pregnant?
Talking about fetal biological structures in comparison to actual people is irrelevant and silly.  I’m not going to deny that they’re human.  So what?
If you needed any of my organs/body parts for any reason to live, are you more entitled to your right to life or am I more entitled to my own life and my own body?  Think about that.  You cannot do this without my consent.  And if I said no to you, we’d still have equal status under the law.  Why should fetuses be granted that right?  That’s not equality.  You’re not asking for them to be viewed equally if you think fetuses should have the right to stay in someone’s body regardless of what that person actually wants.  You’re asking that fetuses should have special rights, at the expense of someone else’s rights.  That is not equality.

Also, read this.  Learn something.
If you message again with the same arguments and/or even just messaging again without appropriately addressing any of my points (because you still haven’t actually countered them successfully), I’ll just keep sending you these links—or actually, I’ll just let you take personal responsibility for your own education.  I’ve already graciously provided you with my time and generous as well as helpful suggestions and information twice now.  And make sure to check out my references page!  It’s really important to always work on not just our reading comprehension skills, but learn how to take the time to research information, especially when it’s organized conveniently!
Regarding your point about the wire hangers:  It only shows how little you know of the extent of what people had to go through to end their pregnancies for whatever reason and your privilege of never having to lose someone important to you because of this.  You’ve never seen a person bend a wire hanger to be able to try to end their pregnancy or even know a person who has done that?  You think it can’t be done?  The wire hanger is symbolic, it’s not the only way a person did it back then.  But nowadays, it’s more like a symbol for us saying that we’re never going back to the days when abortion was not available as a legal choice.
Sure, there were licensed doctors who did it—it’s still considered back alley.  People still died and got hurt.  The number of people who died or permanently injured themselves was still too high, especially when it was so easily preventable—like making sure the medical procedure was safe, legal, and easily accessible.
The World Health Organization has even declared that:

When abortion is made legal, safe, and easily accessible, women’s health rapidly improves. By contrast, women’s health deteriorates when access to safe abortion is made more difficult or illegal. [And the same would be true for anyone who has the ability to get pregnant.]
