Pro-Abortion Logic… or Lack Thereof
When I wake up on Saturday morning I usually browse around the web reading news stories and blogs and this morning I ran across this article. After reading it and getting angry I subjected my followers on twitter to a little rant. Then I decided why not throw together my rant into a little blog post.
The author talks about how her daily commute consists of riding on the NY subway and how there is a new pro-life ad campaign that she will be “forced” to look at.
Anyway, apparently, thanks to a new ad campaign launching this month on NYC subways, I will be adding “I am forced to read some f’ed up anti-choice ads” to my regular subway repoirtoire.
Metro US is reporting that, starting this week, the New York City subway system will be home of a massive ad campaign bankrolled by the San Diego-based anti-choice organization “Abortion Changes You”.
More images and info on the ads after the jump.
The article warns that
The 2,000 ads, which straphangers will see in nearly every subway station beginning tomorrow [this week], depict either a woman saying, “I thought life would be the way it was before,” or a man saying, “I often wonder if there was something I could have done to help her.”
She continues on,
I call bullshit, and I’m not the only one. Samantha Levine of NARAL Pro-Choice New York is all over this one:
“The campaign suggests that feelings of sadness and self-harm are the universal experiences for someone who had an abortion. And there’s no evidence to suggest that that’s true. The organization behind these ads has an agenda. They aren’t seeking to help women — they’re seeking to get abortion banned.”
Then she wanted to challenge the campaign:
So, “Abortion Changes You” ad campaign, I have a question for you: If you care about women so much, why push such an anti-woman agenda? I think that the hidden-agenda-cloaked-in-faux-concern-for-women trend needed to end with the Aughts, yet somehow, the bizarre and twisted logic behind showing women you care about them by cutting off their access to healthcare mysteriously, miraculously, persists in all its annoyingness. Unfortunately, these ads are only the latest to join the crowded ranks of people and initiatives who couch their anti-woman agendas in messaging about “concern” for women and families
So, pro-lifers are anti-women because they seek to help women and encourage them to carry out their pregnancy to term and either love and nurture that child or give it to another family who would love a child but cannot have one on their own. Shame on those women for not wanting to encourage women to kill their babies.
She then finished with these two gems, which are full of logic (ha!)
“yes, abortion change you- it makes you not pregnant anymore!”
My answer to this: DON’T GET PREGNANT IN THE FIRST PLACE! If you don’t want to be pregnant……. don’t get pregnant.
Also, you know what else changes you? Being FORCED to carry a pregnancy to term against your will!
My answer: Really? Against YOUR will? Who made the decision to have sex? Who knows what happens when you have sex? The baby didn’t make you have sex. You CHOSE to have sex and unless your mom never gave you “the talk” you know what the result of sex is.
The bottom line is that pro-abortion groups cannot use logic to argue why they think abortion is needed. The arguments presented by this woman are ridiculous and can easily be taken apart with simple one or two line answers.
Liberals are also the type of people that want to tell young women they can play around all they want and not have to live with the results of their playfulness. Young girls need to realize that having sex is something sacred that should be saved for when they are read to love, nurture, raise and support a child. And yes, the guys need to take responsibility also. If you really loved the young lady you’d want to wait as well. It’s what’s best for the both of you. End of story.
