It was a joke jessica, not an abortion probe, dont take it so hard.
@GunLovingMerican, i mean, he even tweeted it in quotes
@GunLovingMerican, That's how she makes money. This is the same woman who wrote an article about how she was sick of being hit on, then wrote another article complaining that no guy was flirting with her MONTHS LATER
This guy is clearly sexist. Why doesn't he talk about 40% of the men in their 20s who abort their children?
@Vegetable Soup, 40%?!? If someone in their 20’s says they don’t, I stay the hell away because they’re sociopathic liars
Or, you know, be responsible enough to not engage in activities that have have a risk of long term consequences when they are not in a position to accept those consequences.
@Bobaganusche88, I agree.
@Bobaganusche88, I wish I could up vote you more than once.
@Bobaganusche88, lemme put it this way. You drive a car, knowing that there could be consequences, traffic tickets, an accident etc. So what you do to protect yourself is get insurance (contraceptives) unfortunately shjt still happens, which is why your insurance covers an accident, and why abortion should be freely available with doctors prescription, and doctors, particularly US doctors, need to do their job and not be a morality brigade. I was over the moon when Henry morgentaller received his order of Canada for this very reason
@Bobaganusche88, why would you say something so controversial yet so brave?
@ Tobias Widower, Insurance doesn't stop you from getting into an accident. When you get in an accident it can sometimes be someone else's fault. Insurance is only to make it easier on you, when it comes to abortion, it comes to the mutual interaction between two people. Rape would be akin to your accident analogy.
@Bobaganusche88, in other pieces of advice, please don't live unless you accept the possibility that you may die painfully of a genetic disease. If you do not accept these terms and conditions, you must cease living at once
@Bobaganusche88, what about instances of rape?
@Bobaganusche88, maybe we shouldn't punish women for having sex. Maybe we shouldn't stigmatize women who want to have sex, and maybe we should ban abstinence only education. Maybe women should be able to get birth control without a prescription. Maybe we should stop pretending that a zygote is a human child and make plan b more easily available.
@ Tobias Widower, you’re logic is a bit flawed. Yes, you buy car insurance with the hope that if something happens you are covered. Yes, you can buy contraceptives to lower the chance of a pregnancy. However, you are still engaging in both activities voluntarily. No one makes you drive a car, and likewise the great majority of people choose to have sex. It is not the government or your doctor’s duty to be your moral compass, but neither should either of them provide a get out of jail free card. That’s called enabling bad behavior. If you take away the negative consequences, people are going to make worse decisions.
@SkizleDNizleS, of course you can not eliminate every instance of rape, but even then I don’t think killing an innocent child is the answer. There are plenty of people who have great difficulty conceiving that would be more than happy to adopt. Now, having said that, if I was in an environment where there was a chance of rape, I would do everything in my power to make sure anyone who attempted it gets pumped full of lead before anything happens.
@FrankNStein, the greatest curse of being born is that one day we must all die. Yes, you might get some unavoidable disease, but I think of that more as a lottery that you don’t want to win. However, every decision you make has at least some impact on your life and overall health.
@Bobaganusche88, sure, but what if that child never gets adopted? There are so many different nuances and issues with a topic like this that makes it hard to come up with any solution (never getting 100% satisfaction is true for everything). Then, while one may not support abortions, another may support the right to choose. For now, any solution really comes from one's beliefs and feelings towards the subject
@SkizleDNizleS, yes, you will never find an answer that satisfies all circumstances. For me, the “right to choose” is advocating ending a life that has no say in the matter and did not have anything to do with what caused the situation. But if someone are ok with robbing someone of their chance at life, that’s something they’ll have to live with.
@Bobaganusche88, sure, and others will see it as saving someone from a life of pain and misery. It's a crazy world we live in
@SkizleDNizleS, they may see it that way, but now we’ve circled back to the problem of choice and consequence. Is a night of pleasure worth the risk of a lifetime of pain and misery? Almost everyone who finds themselves with an unwanted pregnancy made the choice that is was worth it. The child did not get to make a choice, but it has everything to lose if the parent chooses to abort.
@Bobaganusche88, so, circling back to it, are you condemning people for having sex? Unprotected? It also delves into another issue of a fetus actually being a human in the early stages, I don't really touch that one since it's such a strange question, but this along with the original point all comes from people's views. Some people will say yes to the risk of sex, others will not. And I feel the same is with the choice of abortion, the fact is some people view it as abhorrent, others view it as their choice to make
@SkizleDNizleS, if you test the dna of a fetus, even in the very early stages, could you tell it apart from an adult? Also, I’m not condemning anyone. They are free to make their decisions. I’m just saying they need to be ready to accept the consequences and responsibilities that come with those decisions. Especially when your decisions affect the lives of other people.
@Bobaganusche88, then I agree. Often times this point of view comes more from people condemning sex (and often times, condemning women for having sex). I agree that they should be responsible. It's a shame that responsibility for one's actions doesn't seem to be held quite as often. This was a good discussion
@ Tobias Widower, why should abortion be free? You mean with medical insurance? I can understand if it was covered but shouldnt be offered freely.
@GunLovingMerican, freely available, meaning you don't need to drive 3 states over for a consultation. The mess that is American healthcare is a whole different ball of wax
@Bobaganusche88, Responsibility is a thing of the past.
I mean...he’s not entirely wrong. I feel like there should be a joke in there but I think he’s really just an a-hole
Aside from the 1% of abortions that are considered “hard cases” (rape, incest, and high probability of either the mother or child not surviving the pregnancy), nobody forced your irresponsible bimbo ass to get pregnant, and forcing an unborn child to pay for your negligence with his/her life makes you the worst kind of human being.
@RepostSniper, a parasitic group of stem cells, undifferentiated, can hardly be considered a “unborn child.” That’s like suing someone who broke your leg for mass-murder because he killed the stem cells in your bone marrow which, if properly cultured in a lab, could’ve been used to clone you.
@Can yew knot, pretty sure that you’ll find that from the moment of conception, the zygote has a completely uniques human DNA sequence: a combination of the mother’s and father’s DNA resulting in a new human being. So nice try.
Having unprotected or poorly protected sex is a deliberate choice because abstinence is an option. If you get pregnant, it’s you’re own damn fault, and it’s time for both parents to step up and do the right thing.
But please, don’t bother educating yourself or opening your mind; that might pull you away from your fantasy world free of individual responsibility.
