Wanna hear something radical, Tumblr?
I think abortions should require consent from the father of the child.
A woman doesn’t own the embryo, it’s a co-ownership.
If the guy doesn’t want the kid to be aborted, he should have the legal ability to stop the girl from getting the abortion.
So men should have the legal right to force someone to remain pregnant against their will, risking their body, mind, and life in the process.
Guess how many people have died in childbirth that don’t have uteri? If you guessed “none,” then you are right.
It is NOT 50/50.

“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.”
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.
You can ask Siri the best place to hide a dead body, where to score drugs, and where to find prostitutes. She will give you legitimate answers for all of these, including how to get a hamster out of your rectum.
However you ask her to get you to an abortion clinic or where to find the Plan B pill she’ll either pretend she doesn’t understand or will direct you to the nearest pro-life clinic.
The fuck is that?
Right so first off,
People who can have an opinion but as soon as you state your own they go absolutely bat shit crazy over it.
I’ve lost count of the amount of times that I’ve had Atheists go absolutely crazy at me the moment they found out I’m a Christian and I believe in God.
It really frustrates me at how they instantly judge me for having a belief in God where as I don’t judge them. I accept and embrace anyone’s opinions and beliefs, if they want to not believe in God then fair enough, if they want to believe in many God’s then feel free it’s not harming me. I’ve never in my life forced my religion or my own opinions down anyone’s throat, it’s not who I am and it was not how I was brought up to be. I was taught to have an opinion but allow others to have their own too.
It’s why I don’t understand that my opinion is instantly wrong just because Atheist’s don’t agree with my choice. I don’t judge you and I don’t shove my religion or choices down your throat and make you try and believe it so stop trying to do the same to me and respect my choice!
Another topic is the whole Pro Life and Pro Choice. I have a lot of friends who are mixed on the subject and some agree and some don’t. I would never personally judge someone on what choice they decided to make concerning a life that’s growing within them. They could be going through certain difficulties, could have been a product of rape, or the mother’s life could be in danger or the baby within her. Me, personally, I would never have an abortion but that’s just me. I wouldn’t think less of anyone because of a decision they made as long as it was a valid reason.
Every reason to have an abortion is a valid reason. You are free to state your opinion, and people are free to disagree with you. Freedom of speech is not freedom from response.
Furthermore, I’ll tell women to stop complaining about men over simple dating rituals (the few that do) when groups of men stop behaving as though those same rituals entitle them to sex.
Getting a “part of your body” removed is not a human right.
Penis + Vagina CAN AND WILL SOMETIMES EQUAL A FETUS. This is basic biology. You take that risk every time you engage in a sexual activity.
You made the choice to have sex and you’re saying pro-lifers are infringing on what you’re doing with your body? No one’s stopping you from having sex. You already have a choice. We’re just saying that your choice shouldn’t have to cost someone a future.
Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy. It is a legal precedent that consent to one action is not consent to anything that happens subsequently. This is common sense.
No one has a right to another person’s body without their constant consent, even if their life depends on it.
