I am pro choice because…
The pro-life movement is built on lying and twisting the emotions of others.
The pro-life movement is built on the use of religious dogma to control the lives of others.
The pro-life movement is built on the idea that women cannot and should not be permitted anything but punishment if they don’t engage in the “right kind” of sex life, ignoring the idea that people can make mistakes, be raped, be molested, or that circumstance plays a role in outcomes.
The pro-life movement completely ignores children after they are born.
The idea of “dead babies” is a smokescreen for various policy initiatives which decay Constitutional rights and privileges. (For people that do not know, Roe v. Wade is one of the cornerstones of the Constitutional right to privacy, where it pertains to medical decisions. The Supreme Court ruled, with Roe v. Wade, that medical decisions about reproductive care are not and should not be a topic of control for the state, and that women are ensured a Constitutional right to the ability to decide when and where they reproduce, and that the state has no business controlling and no stake in that decision.)
Pro-life arguments hinge on the idea that some people are less important than others (as well as on the idea that a hypothetical person is more important than a woman.)
Pro-life positions rely on pathos.
Every pro-life demonstration I’ve been exposed to has been incredibly contemptuous of the rights of parents and children.
The extension of “personhood” to hypothetical persons is an extraordinary extension of the interests of the state.
Even though I AM Christian, I do not want religion or the state dictating women’s free rights.
I want to hear your thoughts…GO!
