living kills

anonymous asked:

Why do you support abortion if it kills people? How can you possibly justify taking another life? Selfish human beings who rationalize in their heads that it's not "killing" so that their life can be a bit easier from their mistakes. No one is a mistake. There's a reason why each and every one of us was put on this earth and it is not up to us to play God and decide who lives and dies.

“It kills people,” is where you’re wrong.

Do you know what does kill people? Banning abortion. Illegal, unsafe abortion is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality around the world and it kills almost 70,000 each year. That’s nearly 200 people a day unnecessarily killed by pro-“life” policies.

Countries where abortion is illegal almost consistently have a.) higher maternal mortality rates and b.) higher abortion rates compared to countries with policies that respect reproductive healthcare.

Calling people selfish and questioning their morality does not reduce the need for abortions. All it does is contribute to the stigma surrounding abortion - which, again, can kill people, if you happen to target someone particularly vulnerable to your unfounded judgments. 

If you think abortion is so wrong because it kills people, why the hell do you continue to support policies that ensure that it will happen more and happen in an unsafe, deadly manner?

Fantastic Fables. Ambrose Bierce. New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1899. First edition, first printing.

“A PIOUS Person who had overcharged his paunch with dead bird by way of attesting his gratitude for escaping the many calamities which Heaven had sent upon others, fell asleep at table and dreamed. He thought he lived in a country where turkeys were the ruling class, and every year they held a feast to manifest their sense of Heaven’s goodness in sparing their lives to kill them later.”

People will bend over backwards to try to claim that eating meat isn’t wrong and it really just is. It’s terrible for the environment and it’s literally killing living and feeling beings. I’m not vegan or vegetarian right now (I have been in the past) because my mental illnesses and my other demanding dietary restrictions make it really, really, really difficult but eating meat and dairy and eggs is still bad. Sometimes we do bad things. We can’t avoid it. We just have to live with it.

We wasn’t able to hear this song in Raleigh since we was evacuated, finally hearing this live killed me. This song holds so much meaning to me that you’ll never understand. I cried like a baby. #GreensboroRoadshow @twentyonepilots #twentyonepilots (at Greensboro Coliseum Complex)

An adult teacher (whose job it is to protect the children they preside over) flippantly dismissed the fact that the child in their care had been beaten up in the boys’ bathroom.

The power structure of transphobia ensured that this honor child would be so affected by a shattered self esteem, and fearing for her safety, that her grades–and therefore whole future–was going down the toilet. (And no one fucking cared about her needs)

And of course, trans people of color will be hit hardest.

We have to do better as a society.

Protect trans kids.

Chicago police shoot and kill Joshua Beal leading to clash between BLM activists and pro-police protesters

  • Joshua Beal, 25, was in Chicago on Saturday for a funeral for his young cousin who died recently due to gun violence. 
  • Beal was driving in the funeral procession of vehicles when he, a firefighter and 2 plainclothes police officers got into a traffic dispute. 
  • A firefighter’s insistence that funeral vehicles were blocking an emergency fire lane and causing delays sparked an initial argument
  • Ultimately, one of the police sergeant fatally shot Beal
  • Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Beal had a gun and refused to drop it.
  • Beal’s family said that, not only did he legally own the gun, he did not fire at the officer or firefighter. 
  • She said the dispute was sparked by plainclothes police officers who cut off her daughter’s vehicle from the procession and pointed a gun at her daughter, without identifying themselves as officers.

Hours later local Black Lives Matter activists came out to support Beals’s family. Pro-police protesters in the area responded by threatening Beal’s family and activists with violence. Video and witness accounts reveal things got really ugly and racist.

They’re called the Mothers of the Movement. We often hear about those killed by senseless violence — but we rarely hear about the families the victims leave behind. Frankly, the Mothers of the Movement would rather just be moms.
