Actually, Killing Your Unborn Baby Makes You a Bad Parent. Always.
Today in Don't You Dare Judge Me for Killing My Children, Jessica Valenti, a stupid feminist, tweeted a lesser known abortion talking point: that some women who kill their unborn children are killing their unborn children to better care for their born children. How tender.
Feast your eyes on the evil insanity yourself:
Jessica Valenti asserts abortion is a responsible choice, see. Kill the unseen child to better care for the children already on the ground. I imagine Adolf Hitler used a similar rationale for ushering the Jews to camps outside of major cities. If you can't see the Jews being killed, it's just not as bad. Besides, better to kill a few citizens in order to care for other citizens.
For illustration purposes, let's take it one step further in the shitty parental direction.
Mom has a teenager, an 8-year-old and a four-year-old. To better care for the teenager and the 8-year-old, can mom kill the four-year-old? Why not? She's just trying to better parent her teenager, who needs a lot of attention and social media monitoring, and the 8-year-old, who's just as deserving of care. The four-year-old hasn't been around as long, so she's more expendable. Right?
Or is the difference between the four-year-old in my scenario only different because it doesn't have an umbilical cord attached to mommy, and is hidden behind the abdominal wall? We can't see her face, so it's easier to snuff her. That's how barbaric Jessica Valenti and this talking point is: the difference between a born child and an unborn child is size, level of development, environment, and degree of dependency. SLED for short. The same metrics apply to a four-year-old child and a teenager, by the way.
A person's size, level of development, environment, and degree of dependency do not determine a person's humanity. An 85-year-old man living in a convalescent home and needing a full-time nurse is just as human as an infant who breastfeeds. A 35-year-old woman living la vida loca in a condo is just as human as a teenage boy marching on Washington D.C. Even if he dares wear a MAGA hat while smirking. The insolent weasel.
The "abortion responsibility" sentiment is not only false, but it's also disturbing and straight up evil. You do not kill one thing to free up your time to care for something else. Let's frame this not in unborn baby or Nazi terms, but an analogy using something most Americans do love: dogs.
Women who kill their unborn children aren’t good parents. Imagine saying “I had my puppy killed so I could better… https://t.co/EL5yY5YWE4— Courtney Kirchoff (@Courtney Kirchoff)1550678834.0
If a man or woman ever uttered those words, we'd all treat him or her as a monster. Rightfully so. You killed an innocent puppy to better care for your other dogs? WTF is wrong with you? Why couldn't you have given the puppy to someone who could care for it? Why couldn't you shift some priorities to care for the creature you brought into your life, through no fault of its own? Why did the puppy have to die so you could go back to living as you wished?
Yet when it comes to unborn human beings...
After all, abortion is a woman's choice. It's "responsible" according to feminists such as Jessica Valenti. Kill one person to love someone else. I can't wait to see the Hallmark cards. Roses are red, violets are blue. To be the best me, I killed the one who came before you.
Responsibility, being a good parent, demands you flex and adapt to the challenges life throws at you, not murdering someone because gosh, it's just too hard with all these spinning plates.
Yes, of course, children demand a lot of attention. But if you can't meet their demands, the solution isn't to snuff the child growing in your uterus. The solution is to be a responsible human and give the child to someone who can look after him or her.
Yes, that will be a hard decision. But giving a child life will always be easier than condemning it to death.
Incidentally, are there any parents out there who tell their children: "I loved you so much, I killed your baby brother"? Because I can think of nothing more frightening to hear. If you're that person, if you killed a child to better siphon your "love" and "care" to other children... damn. From what hell dimension did you spawn?
