Is Abortion a Women’s Rights Issue? Yes. It is.

I posted this picture on Facebook a few days ago:

Someone commented, stating that he saw a piece on the news the other day in which they stated that one third of the ‘millennium’ generation is just gone. He went on to say that it was “kind of startling when you think about it.”

It certainly is.

I am shocked that people are still falling for the whole “rights” gambit. Women have actually been programmed to believe that killing their own children for any reason they deem fit is not only justified but is a right which must be fought for, and that anyone attempting to oppose this right is seeking to oppress them. Pretty unbelievable when you really look at it.

Once I got into a thing about abortion with somebody who said, “When you take politics out of it, it really is a women’s right issue.” I said, “Ma’am, women’s rights is politics. When you take that out of it, all we are talking about here is killing babies.” This has been so masterfully obscured, wrapped in the flag and obfuscated with images of a misogynist society trampling women underfoot. They have gotten women to fight for the right to kill their own children using the oldest trick in the book: the bait and switch. It boggles the mind.

You always hear that “more education” is needed to help prevent abortions and pregnancies. While I applaud the sentiment, I’ve never understood what this actually means. According to the CDC, 40% of women who have abortions have had more than 1 previous abortion and almost 1/4 of them have had more than 2 previous abortions. You mean to tell me these women cannot figure out how they are getting pregnant? They can’t stop it from happening over and over again? I’m supposed to believe that women are so stupid, so helpless and so weak that they cannot prevent a pregnancy from occurring? They are strong and empowered because they can kill their babies after the baby is conceived but too helpless to prevent conception in the first place?

Or could it be that they are simply the victims of an indoctrination program that teaches them that an abortion – which scars the uterus, can cause miscarriages later in life and serious emotional and psychological trauma – is just no big deal?  “Pregnant? That’s OK. We’ll make it like it never even happened. No sweat.” Maybe if killing babies was not treated as the medical equivalent of having a wart removed, people would be a little more careful.

Here is where people usually bring up rape, incest and sexual freedom. Let me address that right now:

1. Rape and and incest do not even account for 0.03% of the astronomical amount of abortions in this country so for the purposes of debate, it is simply a strawman argument. Women who are raped and become pregnant generally have a lower instance of abortion than the general population because abortion adds another traumatic experience and worse, it puts them in the position of the aggressor.

2. I am as sexually liberated as the next person. Probably more so than many, actually. I don’t care who you sleep with, where you do it or how often. But are we rutting dogs in the street? A stray bitch in heat cannot prevent herself from getting pregnant but I expect more from a human being. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I do. I resent the idea that women are somehow not above stray dogs and that abortion is necessary because of this.

True feminism empowers women. True feminists do not champion causes in which women are tricked, duped and brainwashed. This is what has happened with abortion: women are applauding their own programming. Women are still being kept in their place. The place has just changed. In the past, they wanted you to have babies. Now they don’t. The only thing that has changed is the rhetoric. Sorry to all the modern feminists out there but killing your children because a patriarchal society decided for you that you should has not empowered you. It has turned you into a knee-jerk reaction demographic, not empowered individuals. If you want to talk empowerment, women own the reproductive power of society. Abortion allows them to take that from you. Women are still being controlled by the uterus and their reproductive role. 

You don’t believe that, do you? Think about it. Put your emotions aside and really think about it. In the past, if you did not marry, stay home, have lots of kids and keep house, you were a traitor to women. If you had less than 3 kids, you were maligned by society and other women as not dedicated to your family. In the present, if you do not work, have a career and support abortion, you are a traitor to women. If you have more than 2 kids, you are maligned by society and other women as a “breeder.” Notice any similarities? The only thing that’s changed is what they want you to do. Their way of getting you to do it is still the same.

I thought we were tired of being controlled. Wasn’t that what women’s lib was all about?
