Abortion is not an option. Take responsibility for your actions and either raise the baby yourself or put him/her up for adoption. Why should the innocent human being growing in your womb get the death penalty for your actions?

Abortion is taking responsibility, just not the way YOU’D like.
It’s not your business what someone else chooses to do with their body.

"abortion is not an option" Bitch, who the fuck are you to say it isn’t an option? Having an abortion IS taking responsibility (responsibility: the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.) you ignorant fool. Why should an innocent human being be forced to carry on an unwanted pregnancy when she is 15 years old. You’re a sick twisted piece of shit. 

Adoption is an alternative to parenthood, not an alternative to pregnancy. Pregnancy is a dangerous state of being. You can fucking die, and a lot of women do (both in pregnancy and during childbirth). Not to mention that many of the symptoms of pregnancy can make attending school and getting an education (which can help you to provide for yourself and/or any future children you decide to have) keeping a job (and therefore income ie a roof over your head, food on the table, running water, heat, etc and possibly insurance) difficult or even impossible. Not to mention the chances of being murdered actually RISE when pregnant (especially in already abusive relationships)Sometimes, having a child isn’t the biggest problem. Often, the state of being pregnant causes immediate, serious, lifelong problems for the pregnant person and/or the fetus.As explained above, pregnancy can lead to a pregnant person losing employment or having to give up on their education/put their education on hold. Unemployment and lack of an education can both lead to poverty.The number one cause of temporary poverty in the US is unwanted pregnancy. Poverty can (and often times does) lead to homelessness, dependency on public assistance, criminal activity, starvation, malnutrition, disease, and death.What to do if you have a pregnancy and feel you are not equipped* to raise a child: look into assistance programs. If you feel that the assistance programs aren’t enough to enable you to raise a child yourself, begin looking into adoption.What to do if you are pregnant and feel that pregnancy itself is not something that you are equipped* to deal with: Consider abortion.What do do if you are pregnant and feel you are equipped* to deal with both pregnancy and parenthood: Congrats! Start looking into prenatal care. Good luck.What do do if you’re not pregnant and someone else is: shut your fucking mouth and worry about your own body.
*Equipped can mean financially prepared, but also means physical, mental, and emotional preparedness. If you feel that you are not emotionally ready for something, that is valid. If you feel like you don’t have the support system you would need to cope with something, that is a valid feeling.

Look, abortion kills baby women, usually because the woman was forced into it by parents, peers, bf, etc. Not exactly feminist.

Do you honestly believe that the majority of abortions are forced? 

Pro-CHOICE. As in we support CHOICE. If someone chooses to give birth, AWESOME! If someone chooses to put his/her child up for adoption, TERRIFIC. If someone chooses to abort, FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC.
If someone is forced into any of those situations by “friends,” family, significant others, etc, THAT IS NOT OKAY. Whatever decision someone makes for THEMSELVES is a decision I support. PRO CHOICE. Not pro-forced abortion, not pro-forced birth, not pro forced adoption. Pro. Motherfucking. Choice. I believe in CHOICES.

THIS. ALL OF IT.

are you fucKING SHITTING ME

Can’t you just feel that anti-choice compassion? Oh, and it gets better:

Apparently, I can’t possibly know how going off the meds I’ve been taking for 12 years would affect me. No, it’s never like I’ve made a mistake and forgotten to take it for a day, nor is it like I’ve never tried to wean myself off of it.
And not only that, but this bitch also thinks I’m making too big of a deal out of my anxiety. And she says this while never having experienced anxiety herself. (And no, ADD is nothing like anxiety, so I really don’t understand why she brought that up at all.) Fuck, her ignorance is both irritating and hilarious.

“I don’t believe anxiety disorders are all that limiting.” I quit forever.

For the record, that bitch must be one of the lucky people who have a mild form of ADD and is on a low dose of medication. I take about $5k worth of ADD medication a year (well, it’d be $5k without me being lucky enough to have insurance) and it takes my mom about 5 minutes of talking to me to know if I’ve taken my meds or not. When I’m off of my meds I get insomnia and migraines, which together magnify my normally dormant GI tract issues and have me dry heaving for hours each day, my mood swings are so intense I’ve been accused of being bipolar. But you know what? Even though I have a pretty serious case of ADD I would never in a million years trade in my ADD for an anxiety disorder. Just the idea of having an anxiety disorder is scary to me.And I love her logic of “if you can’t cope off meds why are you having sex?” That’s like saying “if your blood pressure can’t be controlled off meds, why are you having sex?” Here’s my advice to people:When you are going to comment on a mental/emotional/behavioral issue, insert a physical issue in and see if you sound like a dick. “I have to cover for Carl today because he had a *stroke* again,” “What do you mean you can’t go out tonight? It’s just a little cancer!” See how you sound like a dick? That’s because you’re a dick. Mental illness is ILLNESS. Sometimes it needs therapy. Sometimes it needs medication. Because when someone is ill, you give them the treatment they need to get better.

Hi, mummy! You don’t know about me yet but I am going to be your little baby girl. I know you didn’t plan me and you’re still only young yourself but I promise to be as good as I can be. I’m going to be a famous photographer and my work will be everywhere. You’re going to be so proud of me,…

If my hypothetical future fetus starts talking to me I will RUN (not walk) to the nearest medical professional. If I’m not diagnosed with schizophrenia or some other problem that comes with hallucinations I will proceed directly to Planned Parenthood to have that demon spawn removed.

We were deeply saddened to hear the news about Savita Halappanavar – a woman who died after being denied a life-saving abortion in Ireland. There are too many stories like Savita’s out there and many countries – other than Ireland – where abortion remains illegal.  Remember Savita and the importance of access to safe and legal abortion in the United States and around the world. Please share this in support.

I was the victim of an NYC abortion scam.

Isn’t it bad enough that we have assholes standing on the sidewalks outside, screaming us into guilt? Isn’t it bad enough that forever after, we will only hear about what sluts we are? Isn’t it bad enough the guilt that ignorant people heap upon us, sometimes unknowingly, but mostly on purpose?

Isn’t it enough that we are trying to take responsibility for our lives, but all anyone can focus on is that stupid 1,0000th of an ounce embryo?

No.

Now they have to scam us out of money.

In a RAGE right now.

This is horrifying. It seems so strange that it really is necessary to look up reviews of abortion clinics on Yelp or on other websites to make sure that they’re okay, but I’m so glad I read this. Now I know.

A heads up for any followers that live in NYC or are at any point planning to go to NYC for an abortion. This is so beyond infuriating, and I wish there were more avenues for this person and the other victims of this clinic to complain and do something.

This is downright horrifying. This is why we need more Planned Parenthood locations. We NEED to have a name we can trust, an organization that is honest.

Oh, wow. I’m random.: I love how people say that because of the economy, birth control/abortion shouldn’t factor into the election.

Right now there are so many people in this country barely scraping by, and not in a “Honey, we have to decide between Paris and Fiji this year” way. In a “Honey, if we want to keep the lights on this month we’re going to be on a bread and water only diet this week” way. The people who have been hurt most by this economy literally can’t afford to have a child. They can’t afford the healthcare, the time off of work, the food, the clothes, the supplies. More children born into poverty means more children on welfare, food stamps, and other assistance. Statistically children born into poverty are more likely to do drugs, enter the foster care system, be obese, and be incarcerated. People who can’t afford to have children (financially, emotionally, physically, whatever) should be given all the tools to prevent pregnancy, and the ability to terminate a pregnancy if they wish. 
The economy effects the ability of people to support children. Children effect the economy. Stop pretending that family planning and the economy are mutually exclusive, they’re actually very intertwined.

No no no no, haven’t you heard yet?
If for whatever reason you cannot afford to have a child

Keep your fucking legs shut

No no no no, haven’t you heard yet?
You’re not the sex police!
Should couples who never want to have children abstain?
What about couples who carry the gene for diseases, like Tay Sachs, and choose to not have children to spare them that horror?
Or people who would die from pregnancy?
Fact: Sex doesn’t always result in pregnancy!
You don’t get to tell anyone else when and how to fuck. Leave my pussy alone. Worry about your own damn sex life.

Republican candidate for Hillsborough County Sheriff, Frank Szabo, said today that he would arrest any doctor performing elective abortions in his jurisdiction. Further, he wouldn’t be opposed to using deadly force:

“I would respond specifically by saying that if someone is under threat, a full-grown human being, if they’re under threat, what should the sheriff do? Everything in their power to prevent them from being harmed,” he said.

When pressed about what he would do if he learned that a doctor was about to perform an elective abortion, Szabo replied he would do what it took to prevent that from happening.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Well, I would hope that it wouldn’t come to that, as with any situation where someone is in danger, but again, specifically talking about elective abortions and late-term abortions, that is an act that needs to be stopped.”

Even if the abortion was legal in the state of New Hampshire, Szabo says that as sheriff, he would not need to answer to any higher authority or public official.

While Szabo has no law enforcement background, he claims his business experience qualifies him for the job.

Areyoumotherfuckingkiddingme? FUCK THIS DOUCHEBAG. NOT IN MY FUCKING STATE YOU WON’T. I will fucking protest his ass every damn day. I’ll get a vagina costume and sit outside his office all damn day I’m not even kidding.

Exhale is an amazing after-abortion talkline serving the United States. They serve people who’ve had abortions and their loved ones, and provide a safe, respectful, and supportive volunteer counselor to talk to. They are the “#1 post-abortion referral of health care providers nationwide, including Planned Parenthood.”

Exhale has submitted their commercial to Social Teeth, which will help them take it nationwide if they get enough votes. Voting ends today at midnight PST, so sign up and vote now!
