It's a fiction, not a moral treatise.

I'm a 28 year-old Instructor of Argument. It is my job to teach incoming college students that talking smack professionally is about having an opinion and backing it up. I teach young adults not only to have opinions, but to have a VOICE in their community and in the world at large. I inspire, I discourse, and I geek out.

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 OH-SNAP-PRO-LIFERS! with 24 notes

Just because a pregnant individual has support doesn’t mean they’re not going to choose abortion, not everyone chooses abortion because they don’t have the time or financial stability to go through pregnancy, childbirth, and raise a child - some just don’t want to be pregnant or don’t want to be parents yet/ever. 
Also, shaming women for choosing abortion and waving signs int he air condemning them and trying to take away their reproductive rights and making them fear for their wellbeing is not support. 

Um, where is she shaming women??? This sign is to say that more women need to be given resources, love, and help, so that they don’t choose abortion, and are able to have people show them care and concern. Obviously if a woman just doesn’t want to be pregnant, she’ll murder her child, but this is referring to women who want their babies but feel so desperate they consider abortion.
Chill the heck out. This is not condeming women of anything. Way to overreact smh.

Devil’s advocate erring on the side of the first replier, here, because I get their initial reaction to the post: A pregnant person needs support regardless of the decision they make, but I won’t disagree that the intent, here, is somewhat better than what people come to expect from pro life posters. Having access to comprehensive sex education, contraception, and universal healthcare would most certainly provide the “support” of which you and this picture speak, which would in turn lead to fewer abortions overall. None of those things will be gotten by shouting at frightened people outside of abortion clinics and calling it “support,” however — which is unfortunately the face of the movement right now, whether it’s one you want or not.
