it’s so cute when you talk to someone a lot and then you notice the little phrases that you use and the stupid little things you say slipping into their vocabulary more and more
A bill advancing in the legislature would impose more obstacles for women seeking to end a pregnancy.
For fucking real? God how much is my state going to fuck up?
Oh my God it’s true I lost a follower over my abortion opinions wow. Well that’s okay, I don’t mind. Whatever makes my followers comfy on this site<3
I’m going to share my standing on abortion. If you want to just read the story, it’s below the line.
I have been pro-choice since the take on abortion became such a huge travesty in our nation. Now why is that? Well, all of the traditional examples hold true for me—I wouldn’t want have to birth a baby I conceived through rape, and neither should any woman. That’s worse than disgusting to force on a person. Also, currently, I am a teenager. And yes, I have protected sex. Now, if something were to happen: 1.) I am currently finishing my first year in University. I don’t have the time or money to support a child. Of course, adoption would always be an option for someone who can healthily and readily care for their fetus—I am not one of those people. At least not currently! I am 4’9” and getting no taller, with a weight that constantly stays between 80-90lbs. I shouldn’t have to convince anyone that this is not safe for a teen mother.
But don’t go off of that and make some horrid decision. I said I’d share a story, and so I am.
I have a twin sister, Erin. She actually has a blog around here. She and I were teensie-premie babies. My mother is not much taller than me, and maybe weighed twenty or so pounds more than I do now when she was first pregnant. Now, carrying twins already entails several medical risk—any amount of multiples does. These risks are to both the mother and the babies. My mother, tiny as she is, immediately started facing several problems. She was ill all day, every day, and could hardly move out of bed. She had her own job as a real estate agent at the time, and eventually she had to take leave. She became thin. Thin. Because she was so sick all the time. And do you know what happened? She was rushed to the ER multiple times, to the point where they decided she needed to stay there to be taken care of. While there, they took several blood tests, hundreds of finger pricks and loads of medicine. Several times a night nurses would come in to check my mother’s heart rate and to give her an ultrasound to check that we were still alive.
At one point this ordeal seemed to the doctor that it could only go one way, and that was in the result of my mother’s death. And you know what that doctor did? He asked my dad what he wanted to do. Not my mom, only because she was unable to give this answer. And you know what my dad said? Ask her mother. My grandmother, who has been a nurse all her life was entrusted to make the final decision to allow my mother to give birth to us at 20 weeks. This would have meant my sister and I would have fit in each hand, We would have been blind. The survival rate for a baby born 21 weeks or earlier currently is 0%. My grandmother, knowing this and knowing that doing it would save her daughter, chose instead for us to stay in the womb. She did this because she knew that my mother, if given the choice, would have rather died if we had died by being taken away. She would have rather died for my sister and I to live.
Can you believe a love like that? And we’re all okay!
My point is, my mother very well could have died, because her body was unfit to hold us and was killing the three of us. People tend to overlook these situations. I could very well not be here now. We could have all died. That is something people should think about.
Abortion is basic health care and everyone has a right to it.
- fetuses do not think
- they do not “scream out” when they are aborted
- they have no brain function and no nerve endings until long after the deadline for a legal abortion
- they aren’t “sad” when you abort them
- they do not “realize what is happening”
And these aren’t my beliefs, they’re scientific facts
people who claim that fetuses do all of the above do it basically to force guilt onto women and thats the cheapest thing u can do
