"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
Just keep on thinking that abortion is okay. Just because you want to fuck without consequences.
And here’s the truth of it: You aren’t concerned with protecting a life.
You are only interested in punishing people for having consensual sex that isn’t driven by a need to procreate. The idea that people could just want to have consensual sex with each other and NOT become parents is something that you take PERSONAL OFFENSE to.
This is a sentiment DRIVEN by a desire to control and restrict people’s ability to have consensual sexual relationships without a specific intention to procreate, and that is gross, invasive, and weird.
Hey hey hey! General statements like that are completely unfair. People can be for or against abortion for so many reasons. Not everyone that is pro-life thinks sex without babies is wrong. That’s just like saying pro-choice people are just throwing their vag around all the time. No. No. No. If we’re gonna debate something can we please be adults? Oh wait… I forgot. This is the internet. Sorry.
I was responding to THAT SPECIFIC PERSON. I SPECIFICALLY SAID that this is what THAT person thought and that THAT SPECIFIC argument they were using was unacceptable for THOSE reasons.
It wasn’t a god damn “general statement.” It was a critique of a SPECIFIC person using a SPECIFIC argument, and maybe if you were a little less hyper-sensitive and more willing to acknowledge the assholes in your shitty movement you’d be able to recognize that.
Now, do you have something important to say, or do you just want to derail this conversation some more with your trivial driveling?
