“I went alone. I was terrified. It was full of other young girls, and we were all terrified and looking at each other and nobody was saying a bloody word. I howled my way through it, and it was horrible. I would never recommend it to anyone because it comes back to haunt you. When I tried to have children, I lost three — I think it was because something had happened to my cervix during the abortion.”
No matter how loud or how frequently abortion rights advocates claim the contrary, heartbreaking testimonies like this remind us that abortion DOES harm women.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Your mother chose life for you. Shouldn’t every child have the same chance?
like it’s not “whoops I’m PREGNANT AGAIN tee hee time for an abortion!!”
nobody fuckin does that. nobody
it’s more along the lines of
do you want an abortion or do you want to die
do you want an abortion or do you want to watch your baby die after a week
do you want…
"If our right to live depends on how anyone feels about us, then none of us are on a firm foundation." — Scott Klusendorf, The Case for Life
Dr. Seuss may not have meant it that way, but the quote (“A person’s a person no matter how small”) definitely applies and rings true in the abortion debate.
Horton Hears a Who is about standing up for what’s right when everyone else thinks you’re crazy. It’s about standing up for those who can’t defend themselves, even when everyone else thinks those people don’t matter or can’t possibly be people because they don’t look like you or me.
Even though Dr. Seuss seems to have been a Planned Parenthood supporter (his widow still is), the theme of Horton Hears a Who hits home for many pro-life people.
Women count, and deserve support before, during, and after pregnancy.
Fetuses, or unborn human beings, don’t deserve to be killed.
What choices can you make with your body?
Would you tell a suicidal person that it’s “their body their choice?” In that case, it actually is only their body. Shouldn’t they be able to do whatever they want?
No, we’d do everything we could to stop that person from committing suicide, because we care about people and about human life. We would interfere with their choice to save their life.
So how much more should we interfere with someone’s choice to end another human being’s life?
