Please keep your moral fuckery out of my vagina, thanks.

I’m annoyed by anti-choicers today:

I’m annoyed by people trying to put their insane religious beliefs up my vagina. This is from the Colorado Right To Life blog:

Where Do Rights Come From? Human rights do not come from the government, for then they wouldn’t be rights; nor from the majority (consider America and slaves, Germany and Jews); nor from the doctor or hospital. For rights come from our Creator, at that moment we are created, as Jeremiah 1:5 quotes God, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” The Declaration of Independence affirms what those who believe in God have always known. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they areendowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…” We have human rights because we are made in our Creator’s image and likeness, which is why parents, unlike animals, have a moral obligation to protect and love our children, born and unborn.

There are so many things wrong with that paragraph, it is hard to know where to start. This argument is seriously flawed. Simply saying there is a creator that gives us rights isn’t even a real or sound argument. There is no evidence of a creator that has bestowed inalienable rights upon us. Also, because America is great and I could simply make up any religion I choose, I could just as easily argue that the true creator, Purple Monkey Dishwasher, is against women having babies because it goes against the 5th commandment “Thou shalt only do it in the butt.” It’s easy to just spout off some religious bullshit, but when debating REAL issues it helps to have an actual argument grounded in reality.

Also, just as a side note, all animals, human and non, have a biological and evolutionary need to pass on their genes. Animals don’t use birth control, don’t pull out, don’t visit abortion clinics, don’t get vasectomies, don’t join convents, etc. Now our so-called “moral obligations” to have children are somehow more human and more divine than what animals do without any moral consideration? Any nature show will clearly illustrate the lengths animals go through to mate and to make sure their young are born and not eaten or starved. Animals seem pretty pro-life to me, might want to rethink that argument!

Also, what happens to the rights of a woman when she gets pregnant? Do we not have the right to say “I don’t want another person growing inside of me?” Or are we simply vessels when we become pregnant? Are women people “made in god’s image” or baby machines? It seems like growing a whole other person inside you and then raising that person afterwards is a huge, life-changing, event. To force someone to either do that, or restrict their sexual lives to prevent that, is taking away their freedoms. (Well their god DOES hate women, so I’m not surprised by this).

I’m annoyed by the insane reasoning, like “abortion makes it possible for child rape to continue.” As if a victim or rape or incest would be any safer or happier carrying an unwanted pregnancy, a result of their abuse, to term. After all, no woman’s life is complete until she becomes a mother, right? Sick fucks!

Won’t Personhood Hurt Rape and Incest Victims? Consider the horror of abortion for incest. Cruelly, the abortion clinic typically covers up the crime of incest by sending the victim back home to her rapist. Even worse, they often send her home with her rapist, the very criminal who impregnated her and then brought her to Planned Parenthood. Abortion for incest 
emboldens a criminal to rape his young relative; helps him 
escape being caught; tempts him to repeat his crime; and 
is not compassionate because it kills a baby, fuels rape, 
and increases the woman’s suffering. Personhood for the unborn helps people understand that there are no hard cases when deciding to love a baby. You don’t kill a child because her 
father is a criminal. As documented by Live Action Film’s 
Lila Rose and by Life Dynamics’ Caught on Tape, 
abortion clinics in Colorado and nationwide routinely 
refuse to comply with mandatory reporting laws for 
suspected child rape.

Well if it is in a documentary, then it must be true. No documentary film maker has ever set something up, stretched the truth, or edited away the truth EVER.

I am also annoyed by the lack of alternatives and solutions by the anti-choice side. A 2010 Hunger Study from Feeding America suggests that 14 million American children are hungry. In 2005 there was approximately 1.2 million abortions performed, how many of those children would be going hungry today? How many would be uninsured? Living in poverty? How many would have access to adequate educational resources? We can’t give all actual living children a decent life in this country, but hey, at least they get a chance to suffer in poverty.

Now I’m not saying that an impoverished life isn’t worth living, and that happiness and success isn’t possible for these hungry children. I’m saying that there is no effort on the anti-choicer’s part to combat some of the underlying reasons for why an abortion may be considered. If a woman can’t afford to feed the family she has, but gets pregnant, what is she supposed to do? What if she can’t even afford to properly nourish herself while she’s pregnant? Does this make her a criminal for endangering the life of an unborn child? Will the anti-choicer’s god step in and provide? If history tells us anything, that isn’t likely.

I can’t wait until this election is over and we once again wipe the floor with these sanctimonious assholes.
