I know I have a few people that follow me because of my political discussions, but you should know I also blog and reblog things for fun. I'm into fandom; it's part of my life. Don't be surprised if you see stuff about Disney, or kittens, or even my own artwork. Sometimes, I need to not be so serious.

Photo reblogged from Checkmate, Pro-Choicers! with 210 notes

checkmateprochoicers:

And according to the liberal, pro-abortion site The Guttmacher Institute, only 1% of abortions are because of rape. So 99% of women killing their babies did choose to get pregnant.

1) Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy.
2) It doesn’t matter how few abortions are performed as a result of rape. First of all — one rape is too many, much less one percent of those surveyed. Second, just as few abortions are performed late term, but anti-choicers seem to find it appropriate to overblow their frequency at every turn. 
The Guttmacher Institute is neither liberal nor pro-abortion. Their studies are peer-reviewed and unbiased, as far as I know. Just because the facts do not suit pro-life arguments does not mean it is biased. It just means that the facts do not support pro-life arguments.
