Pro-choice people are hilarious in that knee-jerk, crazy cat with rabies, crazy kind of way. On the one hand, they’re telling everyone how wonderful abortion is, how it’s liberating, empowering, and pro-woman. On the other hand, they get really upset when you show the picture of an actual abortion or the result (dead baby) thereof. Because that’s obscene, shameful, and it hurts women’s feelings.
The nerve on you. The nerve!
Take this woman for example, who took to Salon.com to complain about the gaal of some of you pro-life people who don’t approve of killing babies, and use photos of dead babies to prove your point. It wasn’t because she had an abortion, which she has no guilt about, though…
I was once pregnant with twins and, at 20 weeks, lost one. It was because I carried life and death inside of me for the remainder of my pregnancy; teetering on an unforgiving plane of sadness and joy, both emotions bombarding me with an overwhelming and relentless cruelty.
It was because, when I birthed my now 1-year-old son, I also birthed his dead brother and — afterward — could not bring myself to look at his remains.
It was because, under the guise of kindness and a so-called respect for life, complete strangers are forcing me to look now.
When pro-lifers share dead fetus porn — usually misappropriated as fetuses that have been aborted but usually are, in fact, fetuses that have been miscarried — they fail to realize that all women see those pictures.
Actually no, pro-life people are fully aware of who sees those photos, and the goal is for as many people to see them as possible. Why? Because abortion is a tolerated practice mostly because no one sees it. Got it? When someone sees a photo of a dead unborn baby, dismembered from an abortion, their human heart aches from the injustice of it. If you want people to turn away from abortion, which is the goal of the pro-life movement, the injustice of abortion must be exposed. Kind of makes sense, right?
Here’s what you and all pro-choice people need to realize about the pro-life/anti-abortion movement: the lives of unborn children matter more than the feelings of born people. The end. Here, I’ll make it simpler:
Lives of Unborn Babies > Your Feelings
Look, a lot of women miscarry children. The loss is deep, the wounds are profound…because the death of an unborn child is tragic, as the woman above has stated. Abortion, therefore, is also tragic because it results in the intentional death of an unborn child. Welcome to the illogic of the left. Here, I’ll make it simpler:
Wanted unborn baby dies via miscarriage=tragedy. Unwanted unborn baby is killed via abortion=choice.
I can already hear you pro-choicers telling me the unwanted baby isn’t really a “person” with “rights.” You’ll also claim that you don’t know when life begins, which is just freaky. If you don’t know when life begins, then how do you know abortion isn’t killing it? Also, don’t be a science-denier, life begins at conception. The end. Here, I’ll make it simpler:
When a sperm enters the egg (ovum), a unique human life is formed, complete with its own unique DNA. It is human. It is not a puppy, an iguana, or Cecil the Lion. It is a human person.
Brief sidenote: would you be okay with someone aborting unborn puppies? If you said no, because it sounds terrible, congratulations. Now apply that horror to unborn people.
Now, the pictures. The pro-life movement isn’t going to stop showing the truth of abortion because you had a miscarriage. There are women out there who will abort their children who need to see the truth of abortion before they kill their own children. This is pretty simple stuff, here, people. The pro-life/anti-abortion movement will continue to expose the injustice of abortion (in photo and film form) until abortion is no longer tolerated. Here, I’ll make it simpler:
As long as abortion is still a legal, tolerated practice, people who oppose abortion will keep showing it to people who support it or may have an abortion.
Also remember this: if photos of abortion upset you so much, shouldn’t you be upset with what caused it? Abortion? Instead, abortion supporters attack the messenger, the people who show what abortion is, rather than the procedure itself. If photos of abortion upset you so much, so should the procedure they represent.
It doesn’t get simpler than that.
No word yet as to the opinions from the aborted babies themselves. We’ll keep you abreast as this story develops.
