The way I see it, anyone who is pro-life (or more specifically, anti-abortion, for that percentage who aren’t) should also support free health care, at least so much as for medical expenses for the mother to give birth to the child, and for taking care of the child while it’s in the hospital, because of those people who want an abortion only because they can’t afford the medical bills.
Anti-choicers who would rather let someone die than allow them to have access to safe and legal abortion:
Anti-choicers who think abortion is murder:
The pro-choice movement often treats with contempt the pro-lifers’ practice of holding up to our faces their disturbing graphics. We revile their placards showing an enlarged scene of the aftermath of a D & C abortion: we are disgusted by their lapel pins with the little feet, crafted in gold, of…
It’s been proven that the vast majority of pro life graphics are of miscarriages and late term abortions, but HEY AS LONG AS WE’RE EMOTIONALLY MANIPULATING AND TRIGGERING PEOPLE TO TRY TO GET OUR INCORRECT POINTS ACROSS WHO CARES
I handled the ultrasound while the doctor performed the procedure, and I directed him while I was watching the screen. I saw the baby pull away. I saw the baby open his mouth. I had seen Silent Scream a number of times, but it didn’t affect me – to me it was just more pro-life propaganda. But I couldn’t deny what I saw on the screen.
My mother was pregnant two years ago, and had to have an abortion, otherwise she would have died, 100%, leaving her three already born children all alone, as my dad isn't present. Why do you think a fetus has more rights than an already born human?@Anonymous
I’m very sorry for what your mother has had to go through. Please try to understand: just because I don’t believe she had the right to deliberately kill you and your siblings while you were developing inside of her does not mean that I think you had more rights than her. It means that I think your life was equally as valuable as hers, and that you deserved better than death and abandonment no matter what hardships she was going through.
This literally makes no sense whatsoever. You do think that a fetus should have more rights than the pregnant person carrying it, because you think a fetus should have the right to that person’s body, regardless of whether or not they’re willing to carry it.
Anon’s mother’s “hardship” was a dangerous pregnancy that would have killed her. KILLED HER. That’s not just a hardship. That’s a serious, life threatening situation that requires medical intervention. Would you rather have had this person’s mother die, leaving behind three children, in an attempt to save a non-sentient fetus that may not have even made it to being born alive? Apparently so.
To the anonymous person who sent this message: I am sorry that your mother had to go through such a dangerous situation. I am glad she was able to make this choice and remain alive and involved in your lives. Her choices were not wrong.
I just told my parents about being diagnosed with depression and they...didn't react how I'd hoped. I know that's not the point of this blog (and I love this blog) but do you guys know any blogs out there that kind of serve the same purpose as this one, but for depression? I just really need to reach out to someone who understands right now.@Anonymous
I’m sorry sweetie, I don’t know of any off the top of my head. I do know that anxietysurvivor often talks about depression on her blog (she is a friend of mine and she won’t turn you away for anything).
If any of our followers know of any, please let me know so Anon can have that safe space! -Kendra
My general rules:
Help those who ask.
Send hope to those too scared to ask.
Be around if someone may need you.
Offer your time and your shoulder.
Ask appropriate questions.
Accept appropriate questions.
Do not shame.
Offer sympathy, but do not tell someone you know how they feel if you haven’t been in the same situation.
Sometimes never tell someone you know how they feel.
