You cannot give a fetus rights to a pregnant person’s body and say that they are both of the same value.

Petition to put into place mandatory organ donation and tax increases. 

Proclaiming that you’re prolife will automatically mandate you donate organs. All organs are free game. Your life means nothing compared to saving someone else’s. Tax increases will apply to cover cost of forced pregnancies. 

People who proclaim they are prochoice are given tax deductions and better parking. 

Good deal?

The perception that feminists have no sense of humor baffles me. Feminists makes feminist jokes and they're very funny and sharp at satirizing sexism and patriarchy.

Only pro-lifers would want to be considered “hijackers.”  (Terrorists, much?)
So, I thought this wasn’t until September 1st, with live-tweeting during PBS’s airing of After Tiller.  Unless pro-lifers want to simply trash the hashtags with their garbage, before that date. 
For those of you who don’t know, Dr. Tiller was a doctor who openly performed late-term abortions.  He was assassinated thanks to pro-life terrorists and a vigilante. (Operation Rescue had ties to Dr. Tiller’s assassin, the constant stigma against abortion reaffirmed the the assassin’s violent intentions.)
After Tiller is a 2013 documentary that concerns the only four doctors who still perform late-term abortions in the U.S after Dr. Tiller’s assassination.
This kind of shit, this attempt to silence abortion support, is why abortion stigma exists.  This mob-like attack on abortion scares people away from the subject and from abortion as a choice.  They are scaring people away from freedom of choice.
So, what can we, as pro-choice advocates, do?  Well, during pro-life “hijacking,” make sure you don’t let them have the whole tag!  Post, counterpost, spam up Twitter with your support (you can connect your tumblr to your twitter, fyi.)  Why?  Even if there’s pro-life garbage in our tags, enough posts make the tag trend.  If it trends, people see.  Even if there’s pro-life garbage in the tag, seeing pro-choice support and abortion support is massively important!

Here’s a controversial idea:

steve-blogs:

Women, unlike men, have a choice when it comes to having a child; abortion.

To remedy that inequality should there be some sort of procedure whereby the man involved can have a 1-2 week period where he can sign a declaration stating that he has no interest in raising, contributing to or having anything to do with that child? 

That way the woman can decide whether or not she wants to have that child knowing what to expect. Obviously there would have to be clear guidelines to prevent abuse of that to out of commitments, relationships or previous promises.

We’ve seen the argument that ‘consent to sex is consent to pregnancy’ used against women and that is almost always dismissed but no one seems to care when that is used against the father in that situation.

This literally already exists and yet I keep seeing this all over the place. It’s called a forfeiture of parental rights. You can even sign it after birth for heavens sake. And while all the info is geared for getting your partners rights terminated (Though strict conditions must be met) a person can request to terminate their own rights which is much easier and in fact is one of the easier things in the world to do.

Like, it’s actually super fucking easy to do this, way easier than abortion in fact.

You can’t abuse an entity that i literally incapable of any form of suffering. 
You can abuse people in a coma because the body still registers pain and there is still a level of conciousness in most.
You cannot abuse a fetus because there is no pain registry or suffering.
You literally cannot abuse a fetus, you are gross, you are trivializing child abuse with this and you need to not because this is a really new low for you.

What people need to understand about comprehensive sex education is that abstinence is still taught in the curriculum 

I’d like to expand on this some more.

What I mean is that abstinence is still discussed as a legitimate form of birth control and protection against STIs in comprehensive sex education courses. Too often, people assume that these programs don’t talk about abstinence at all, and they just encourage students to go out and hump like bunnies, just use a condom.

No, that’s not how it works. Obviously abstinence is a very good form of protection. Like… That’s common sense. But comprehensive sex education addresses the fact that abstinence isn’t for everyone. It is encouraged and taught as the best prevention of pregnancy and STIs, but it’s not the only thing that is covered, because assuming everyone will stay abstinent is a joke. I’m sorry, but it’s a joke. Comprehensive sex education curriculums get that.
