I agree you need to eliminate the crisis…but what are the solutions ? Pro-life are against birth control, against safe sex education and will not help a mother in needs.
Pro-lifes’ solutions are slut-shaming and trying to make illegal abortions.
(This comment was on a previous picture. Rather than reblogging…)
I think a lot of abortion supporters are missing a crucial point in this argument…
that this “thing” is a human baby. Or, if you want to fight about semantics, it’s a very young human being who is developing and will keep growing until death. Scoffing at pro-lifers because we don’t do this or that doesn’t change this fact.
That said - where is your proof that you can generalize us like that?
We are not ALL against birth control. I assume you are referencing the recent controversy with forcing Catholic churches to distribute birth control to its female employees. That is the Catholic pro-life community. And even then, I’m almost positive that is only the non-contraceptive birth controls. (Either way - the Church has freedom of religion. If the employees don’t like it, they can find another place of employment)
Second of all. We are not ALL against safe sex education. Once again, freedom of religion. Not all people hold abstinence as a moral standard. Our issue - or I know this is mine personally - is that abstinence education is completely disregarded in secular schools, even though it would certainly prevent a lot of issues. Less teen pregnancies, less STDs - less reason for your “necessary” abortions.
Also - source saying we don’t help mothers in need? Precious Life, end of story.
Precious Life is (one of many) NOT PROFIT organizations that will take in pregnant women and get them free ultrasounds and medical support, as well as deal with adoptions from birth mothers. They are not forceful. They help. The do not “slut-shame”.
And as for those who do slut-shame…I, as well as I’m going to say most of the pro-life community, do not support their actions and apologize for their abhorrent treatment of women who are hurting and scared.
Final note - yes. We are trying to make abortions illegal. You see, all of us here believe that taking the life of a child is wrong.
