“A three-day-old human embryo is a collection of 150 cells called a blastocyst. There are, for the sake of comparison, more than 100,000 cells in the brain of a fly. The human embryos that are destroyed in stem-cell research do not have brains, or even neurons. Consequently, there is no reason to believe they can suffer their destruction in any way at all. It is worth remembered, in this context, that when a person's brain has died, we currently deem it acceptable to harvest his organs (provided he has donated them for this purpose) and bury him in the ground. If it is acceptable to treat a person whose brain has died as something less than a human being, it should be acceptable to treat a blastocyst as such. If you are concerned about suffering in this universe, killing a fly should present you with greater moral difficulties than killing a human blastocyst.”— Sam Harris, Letter to a Christian Nation
That exploit and use slavery for their agenda need to remember
Enslaved Black women had abortions
They used the knowledge they had of herbs to help each other have abortions. Some enslaved women were so proficient in their knowledge of herbs (knowledge brought with them from Africa) , they became to go-to women for abortions.
Its documented in some places in the Caribbean (and i think America), enslaved Black women were aborting so and had perfected it to such a level, there wasn’t enough children being born to be sold into slavery and some plantations were almost brought to their knees because of this. In response, plantation owners set up incentives like giving freedom to enslaved Black women if they had a certain amount of children (i think it was 7) but they rarely ever got freedom and they tended to continue to move the amount of children they had to have to get freedom
Another reminder: enslaved Black women sometimes purposefully had abortions not just so they won’t bring children into this world that would have to go through what they did, but to hurt the number of people being born into slavery and to bring down the plantations they were slaves on.
Fucking white idiots
Like your ass gives two shit about Black life
“Abortion performed in proper conditions are one of the safest medical procedures provided in the United States. Gosnell’s clinic, which was the last refuge for many low-income women, illustrated the horrors of the unsafe, back-alley abortions that are all too common in parts of the world where abortion is illegal.”—
Gosnell’s clinic is the extreme exception, not the rule. Anti-choicers are to blame for this. Pro-lifers are to blame for women seeking these horrifying conditions, beacuse they’d rather risk their health and life than deal with the shame and trauma they’d be put through on the sidewalk outside a legal clinic. Pro-lifers are to blame for this clinic, by actively supporting legislation that is making it increasingly difficult for women to access safe, legal, and affordable abortion, forcing them into clinics and situations like these.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—pro-lifers have blood on their hands, and here is your proof. This is where you’re forcing us to go, these are the lives you’re stealing.
