ok i accept i have a serious problem

Against Abortion

A worried woman went to her Gynaecologist and said:

‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’

So the Doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you want me to do?’

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’

The Doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the Doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.’

The lady was horrified and said: 'No Doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!’

'I agree’, the Doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’

The Doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb.
The crime is the same!

I see you are a supporter of fat acceptance, and I have a question for you. Why would you be happy over being overweight? It leads to serious health problems, and can create strains in relationships. I'm not saying that you should hate yourself for being fat, but why wouldn't you work towards a healthier weight to prevent future problems? I'm not trying to be disrespectful, I'm just genuinely curious.

Ok I can’t be bothered to address the complex idea of health and how it relates to weight [here’s a brief post I already wrote about that] and I really can’t even begin to unpack what in the hell you mean by “can create strains in relationships” because all of the strain in my relationships- familial, friends, romantic- related to my weight has been because it was something people realised is a really great way to pretty brutally abuse me so like… ok

But look. I’ve gotta ask that you try to consider this one thing.

People do not care for themselves when they hate themselves. 

This fantasy of “working towards a healthier life” is one that does not exist, on the whole, without self-kindness and self-love, self-pride, self-acceptance. The mirage of what a happy life you’ll lead and how you promise you’ll love yourself when you’re fitter/sober/solvent/whatever cannot sustain you through the hard, slow, boring thrust of making long-term healthier choices.

When you hate yourself, when all you want is to be thin/fit/muscled, you are filled with self-loathing when you try jogging and you get short of breath. You see the life you promise you’ll have when I’m thin, and you punish yourself furiously for not being thin and so not having this fantasy life. You don’t make healthy long-term choices over diet or exercise that will be sustainable for you; you binge-diet, you starve yourself, you get up and go running at 1am filled with the manic energy of self-loathing and then you are so physically exhausted and so filled with the hot bile of despising yourself, you can’t go again. Your muscles scream at you for the next week. You give up.

Because who doesn’t give up on being kind to something they hate, that seems to punish them and work against them?

I’m trying my hardest to be happy over being overweight because I am overweight. Making healthier choices for myself- whether or not this results in weight loss- is something that takes years of hard work, with payoff slow and gradual. 

You have to try your hardest to love yourself as you are right now, because who you are right now isn’t going away anytime soon by any healthy means.

People deserve to be happy right now. They deserve to live the best life they can right now. And this includes big fat fatties, whatever their health.

“Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even a year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.”

She told the doctor “I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.”

The doctor thought for a moment and, after a brief silence, he said to the lady “I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you, too.”

The lady was horrified and shrieked, “No! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!”

“I agree”, the doctor replied. “But you seemed to be perfectly fine with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.”

The woman was speechless.

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is all the same!

If you agree, please share this with others. Together we can help save precious lives!

Love says, “I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.” Abortion says, “I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.”
