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.

modified—mama:

I am so sick of self-righteous women trying to play the victim card by saying that they don’t have rights over their own uterus. 

Please, shut the fuck up. How can you be SO for equal rights to everyone, yet deny the rights to the child growing inside of you? Are you really that heartless? If you were raped, yes that is sad, but I don’t see how that in any way is the unborn babies fault nor do I see why that unborn child should be denied life. Life sucks, it really does. That doesn’t mean you get to extinguish everything bad that happens. Adoption is a choice. And no, you don’t have to put your child through foster homes and make them have a living hell. There are MILLIONS of people unable to have children waiting to parent your unborn baby. But no, you abort it instead. 

You aren’t pro-choice in my eyes. You’re pro murder, pro denial of rights.

fetus =/= baby

You get rights when you’re born. You cannot have rights when you are renting space in someone else’s body. Nobody can use someone’s body without their constant consent, even if their life depends on it.

I love how you say to rape victims that it’s not the baby’s fault, but it’s also not the victim’s fault. Why should they be forced to remain pregnant against their will?

Adoption is an alternative to parenthood, not to pregnancy. It is not anyone’s responsibility to provide babies to people that can’t have them, especially when there are over 400,000 kids waiting to be adopted in the US RIGHT NOW, and only 2% of the American population adopts.

Murder is acceptable.

ifyouhadoneopportunity:

That is a shocking title right? What kind of twisted society would consider murder of an innocent person completely acceptable? Well, our society does.

Is killing someone because of their size acceptable? How about there level of development, what if they aren’t as physically developed as the person next to them, can I kill them then? That person lives in a different environment than me, this means I have permission to kill them. That person is more dependent on someone than I am, therefore I can make the decision to kill them.

Those are absolutely ridiculous statements. None of those are valid reasons for murder to be okay, but what many people fail to realize is that those are the excuses used everyday for murder. These excuses are not only accepted by society, but funded by our government. Our society has become numb to the murder of the innocent. Did you know that those reasons I listed earlier are the only differences between a newborn child and an unborn one. Size, Level of Development, Environment, and Degree of Dependency. Abortion is legal in our country because people claim that the fetus is not a person because of these four things. 

Size: “The fetus is smaller.”

Really? So being smaller means that it is acceptable for someone to kill me? I am shorter than many of my friends, I can’t control that, which is why I find it so appalling that being smaller is considered a good reason to kill.

Level of Development: “The unborn can’t think or feel pain or know that it exists.”

I could say the same of people in a coma. Is it okay for us to kill them because it is just simply convenient? Or because we don’t want to deal with it because it isn’t our fault? No, that would be cruel, and it’s not our decision whether they live or die. We don’t have the power to play God. Besides since when is our value derived from our abilities like feelings or knowledge?

Environment: “It’s not in the world yet. It doesn’t even breathe air.”

Six inches. Would you let six inches be a reason for someone to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend or someone you love? How about a foot? What if someone is a foot farther away from you? That HAS to be a reason to murder someone right? Once again, ridiculous statements. Did you know that only 6 inches separate the unborn child from being out of the womb. It seems inhumane to kill someone because of where they live.

Degree of Dependency: “The unborn is totally dependent on only one person.”

This is true. It is completely dependent on the mother, but then again, isn’t the toddler as well? What about the eight year old? What about the teenager? They are all dependent to some degree on their parents, so why is this a good excuse for a fetus not to be considered a person? Answer: it isn’t.

Abortion is legal in our country because people claim that a fetus isn’t a person because of those four reasons. But none of those four reasons make a person any less valuable or any less of a person. So if none of those reasons make the fetus any less of a person, then doesn’t that make the fetus a person? But wait, that would make abortion the act of killing a person. That can’t be right, can it? Well, it is. There are roughly 42 million abortions a year. People wonder why they haven’t found a cure for cancer. Did it ever occur to anyone in the scientific field that maybe one those 42 million people could have found the cure for cancer, or designed a completely green alternative to oil, or saved the life of someone that you love, or solved world hunger? Since when were we given the power to decide whether someone should live or die simply because it is convenient for them not to be in our life? Abortion is murder. 

Disclaimer: For those pregnancies caused by rape, I am in no way condoning the rape. Rape is wrong. I am simply saying that abortion should not be an option. Two wrongs don’t make a right and killing a baby is not going to make the rape irrelevant. There are alternatives. Adoption. There are so many couples who don’t have the ability to have children who are trying to adopt and would gladly raise the child as their own.  

Is killing someone because of their size acceptable? How about there level of development, what if they aren’t as physically developed as the person next to them, can I kill them then? That person lives in a different environment than me, this means I have permission to kill them. That person is more dependent on someone than I am, therefore I can make the decision to kill them.

No. Because they’re persons. However, a fetus is not a person.

Did you know that those reasons I listed earlier are the only differences between a newborn child and an unborn one.

I didn’t. Because you’re wrong.

I could say the same of people in a coma. Is it okay for us to kill them because it is just simply convenient? Or because we don’t want to deal with it because it isn’t our fault? No, that would be cruel, and it’s not our decision whether they live or die. We don’t have the power to play God. Besides since when is our value derived from our abilities like feelings or knowledge?

Comatose people are people. They’re also not occupying anyone’s uterus. You will also note that comatose people typically have someone who makes medical decisions for them. Like whether or not to remove their feeding tubes if it’s certain they’re never coming back. Point irrelevant.

Six inches. Would you let six inches be a reason for someone to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend or someone you love? How about a foot? What if someone is a foot farther away from you? That HAS to be a reason to murder someone right? Once again, ridiculous statements. Did you know that only 6 inches separate the unborn child from being out of the womb. It seems inhumane to kill someone because of where they live.

These are born people. They are also not occupying anyone’s uterus without their permission. Once again, point irrelevant.

This is true. It is completely dependent on the mother, but then again, isn’t the toddler as well? What about the eight year old? What about the teenager? They are all dependent to some degree on their parents, so why is this a good excuse for a fetus not to be considered a person? Answer: it isn’t.

Toddlers, eight year-olds, and teenagers are not IN A PERSON’S UTERUS. They are autonomous persons themselves. Point irrelevant.

So if none of those reasons make the fetus any less of a person, then doesn’t that make the fetus a person?

No.

There are roughly 42 million abortions a year. People wonder why they haven’t found a cure for cancer. Did it ever occur to anyone in the scientific field that maybe one those 42 million people could have found the cure for cancer, or designed a completely green alternative to oil, or saved the life of someone that you love, or solved world hunger?

Many of them also could have been serial killers or evil dictators. Point irrelevant.

Abortion is murder.

Murder is the malicious and illegal termination of a person. A fetus is not a person. Nobody gets an abortion to spite a fetus. Abortion is not illegal in this country. It is not murder.

Disclaimer: For those pregnancies caused by rape, I am in no way condoning the rape. Rape is wrong. I am simply saying that abortion should not be an option. Two wrongs don’t make a right and killing a baby is not going to make the rape irrelevant. There are alternatives. Adoption. There are so many couples who don’t have the ability to have children who are trying to adopt and would gladly raise the child as their own. 

1. A fetus is not a baby. If a rape victim decides to get an abortion, that’s none of your damn business.

2. Adoption is an alternative to parenthood, not pregnancy. Nobody should be made a prisoner of their own body.

3. No one is obligated to provide babies to people that can’t have kids, especially when there are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of kids waiting to be adopted, right now. Only about 2% of the US population is looking to adopt. Most of them want white babies with no problems.

Argument completely irrelevant.

Post reblogged from Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. with 4 notes

Food for thought.

someonehasdaddyissues:

“I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.

And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.

By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.

And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.

Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

Many people are very, very concerned with the children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about all the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions who are being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today - abortion which brings people to such blindness.” 

-Mother Teresa

Abortion =/= murder

Abortion =/= a mother killing a born child

And furthermore, Mother Teresa was kind of a crappy person. I don’t need to be lectured by her from beyond the grave about my personal reproductive rights when she knowingly took stolen money and blood money and used it to NOT help any of the sick people she supposedly cared for. (Read: She used it to build convents instead. Because converting more Christians was more important than charity.) This is a woman who wanted to be around suffering people because she saw God in their suffering, and did the bare minimum to relieve said suffering as a result.

fortheloveof-whores:

NEWSFLASH EVERYONE. 

It is not okay in any fucking way to ever co-opt a tragedy for your shitty Anti Choice agenda. It is not okay to compare abortion to slavery, it is not okay to compare abortion to the Holocaust, it is not okay to compare abortion to child abuse, it is not okay to compare abortion to rape, it is not okay to compare abortion to the Killing Field’s, it is not okay to compare abortion to the Aurora Shooting.

If you do that you are bad and you should feel bad. Everytime you walk into a room you should introduce yourself as that asshole who thinks the willful termination of a non-sentient, not physically autonomous, unfeeling embryo is more important than the actually, unwilling pain and suffering of people and those who care about them.

For every halfway decent person who identifies with the term Pro Life and asks yourself why people hate your movement so much - this is a huge fucking reason why, and you’ve got to start treating these fuckers like the assholes they are instead of like allies. Every time they scream out their disgusting bullshit you’ve got to scream out louder that “we don’t like abortion but this ain’t fucking right!”

General rule of thumb for activists of any sort is to answer these questions:

1) Are you referencing a traumatic event to make a point about your movement?

2) Can the people who suffered in said event respond (ie, are they still alive or did this happen more than a century ago)?

3) Assuming they can, would you feel appropriate making this comparison to their faces? To align it with the current issue, would you tell the loved one of any of  the victims of the Aurora shooting, or any of the surviving victims, that their suffering is meaningless compared to the number of abortions that took place in the state of Colorado?

If you answered “no” to #3, you could be a decent person. If you answered “no” but have made a post recently in contrast to that, you need to sit down and think about what you’re doing. If you wouldn’t feel appropriate saying it to their faces, then it’s probably not appropriate to say at all.

Because intelligent persons should not rely solely online dictionaries to form their opinions on matters.
None of those definitions matter. If a person does not consent to remain pregnant, they can’t be forced to remain pregnant and should not be.

Amazing story!

You won’t like me very much after reading this, but that’s ok. You wanted my feedback, so here it is. I’ve had 2 abortions, and I am going for another one next week. If you really thought this would make me do a 180, you are sadly mistaken. Comparing what Hitler did, to abortion is absurd. It’s like trying to compare fire and water, you can’t. This movie made me very angry. Wow, Ray, wow where did you get this idea? Pull it out of some hat with ideas people gave you? It’s a horribly cruel trick, to try and change people’s minds. I am smarter than that. Using the god factor means nothing. There is no god. There is no heaven or hell, and even if there was I do not care. It’s very judgmental to say there is never a reason to abort a pregnancy. This has got to be one of the worst films I have come across. Keep your god, and your religion. Quit trying to make people do a 180. It IS a woman’s choice.


~Linda

Linda,

Thanks for writing and sharing your thoughts. I do appreciate that. Someone came to visit us yesterday who watched the movie last October (that’s one of our production crew in the picture—holding the fruit of “180”).

If you live in Southern California, please come and visit. We would take you to lunch, if you wish.Thanks again.

Best wishes,

Ray

Ray,

I am not sure how much this will mean after the email I sent this past week, but I wanted to apologize for the insensitive and and rude email, directed towards you. Please forgive me. I get very angry easily. This movie made me extremely angry. I had no idea it was a Christian film. I am going to be completely honest here, I’ve been atheist for most of my life, and as far as I’m concerned I will die atheist. I was not expecting an email back. I am 27 years old.

Someone on the street was passing out the 180 movie last Monday. They asked me if I wanted one. I said, what is it about? They said, about the holocaust. I said, interesting (I’ve always loved history). I brought it home, and watched it on Wednesday. I was really liking the film until you started talking about abortion. Like I said, I’ve had two previous. When you got to the part about God, I became even more angry. I hate any thing that has to do with God, about God, by god…and this is another reason I was so hateful in my email.

I did not tell you the truth, in my last email. I was supposed to have the abortion this past Friday. Not this week. When I opened your email, with the attached picture of the beautiful baby…I could not get her out of my head. I tried pushing her out of my mind, but couldn’t. I said to myself, Why do I feel so guilty? Friday, I was driving with my boyfriend to the clinic, and the little smiling face of her, was permanently cemented in my head. I said to my boyfriend, I can’t do this. I’ve got to go home. We turned around before we reached the clinic. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I started crying. My boyfriend thought I was nuts!

I cried in bed the rest of that night. The memories of my past two abortions I had, came flooding back. I would have two girls right now, who would be both 9 & 6. I knew they were going to be girls. When you said, “It’s ok to kill a baby in the womb when…?” I couldn’t answer it. Everything I emailed you, was an attempt to make myself feel better. I really had no good reason for aborting the girls. I’ve put off the abortion for now, and I will tell you, I have never been confronted like that. I don’t think that I can go through with a 3rd abortion.

I will admit this movie makes you think, in my case, it made me think too much…and I did not like it. I hated it.

I hope you understand where I am coming from. I hope you’ll excuse my hot-headed email.

I am sorry.

~ Linda.

Yeah, this isn’t manipulative garbage at all. Let’s also ignore that Hitler was against abortion, so making a comparison is moronic before it even reaches offensive and racist. Just because you can emotionally manipulate people who don’t know better or that aren’t given enough time on the street to analyze what you’re providing them doesn’t make you right.

It’s still a woman’s choice, as Linda initially said, and to answer your question “it’s okay to kill a baby in the womb when…”:

1) There are not babies in the womb. Period. Use proper terminology, and stop trying to emotionally manipulate people.

2) It is okay to terminate a pregnancy at any point prior to viability, and past viability, when a fetus can normally survive outside the womb, it is acceptable if the host’s life is in danger and if the fetus is already dying.

No one is entitled to another person’s body without their constant consent, even if their life depends on it.

Linda made a choice to keep her pregnancy. She was able to make a choice. Don’t use that for your crusade.

To the people complaining about my post about saying that I think it’s ridiculous seeing young children at pro-choice protests..

The reason I find it funny is because you are alllllllll about how you don’t like people shoving their beliefs down other’s throats, yet you tell a young child who doesn’t completely comprehend what you are even talking about, to hold a sign and say pro-choice this and pro-choice that.

Pro-lifers, or at least my self, are not the ones complaining about putting our beliefs out there. So if we have children at our protests, it isn’t being hypocritical like it is with you. 

However, I personally don’t think there should be young children at any protests at all. 

It’s not being hypocritical; it’s just being a bad parent. However, I see it as better parenting if a parent is honest with their child and tells them at a young age that their body is their own and nobody is allowed to use it. A child has some ability to comprehend what is happening in the debate, then.
