Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
Say what you will about the videos of Planned Parenthood saying they don’t provide prenatal care being doctored, but it’s true. Almost all of their clinics do not provide prenatal care. My roommate was unsure if the video was truthful or not, so she called Planned Parenthood today pretending to be a distraught pregnant teen. She asked if they had any vitamins for her pregnancy and they said “no ma'am, you’re going to have to go to your doctor for that.” My roommate responded saying, “my mom and I have the same doctor and I don’t want her finding out that I’m pregnant yet. Do y'all provide prenatal care?” And of course they said “no, we do not provide prenatal care, you’re going to have to go somewhere else for that.” So if you don’t believe what the videos are saying is true, call Planned Parenthood yourself and ask them. Because they’ll probably tell you the same thing.
Abortion has everything to do with religion and nothing to do with feminism. Having an abortion is not a “right” men have over women, and it is not something cis white males want to take away because they see women as less. It’s a heavily debated topic because of the religious and moral issues involved. People (men AND women) see abortion as murder. I am very pro-choice, but you have to understand it’s not a right being taken away by the patriarchy. It’s an argument based on personal beliefs. Join the argument, prove your points without writing people off as cis white males and for fucks sake understand it’s not a feminist issue. The outcome affects women, yes, but the reason isn’t sexism.
“BUT WHAT IF YOU WERE ABORTED? DO YOU NOT REALIZE YOU WERE ONCE A FETUS TOO??”
I was actually unplanned; came as a surprise to my parents. My mom found out she was pregnant with me about three months into her pregnancy. Honestly, it’s kind of a lame argument to say “but what if you were aborted???” Like obviously nothing? I wouldn’t be here right now. But you know what? That would’ve been my mother’s choice. I love my mom enough to respect that choice.
Don’t bring my fucking mom into your shitty arguments.
There’s so many people that will claim to support LGBTQ people, children, the poor, the disabled, and rape victims but are against abortion. As if abortion never affects those people. Like what about pregnant trans man, and lesbian girl that got raped at a party, and teen girls that willingly had sex, and others that got abused, what about homeless women, women whose boyfriends beat them, disabled women who can’t cope? What about everyone else that just aren’t ready for parenthood? Think about all the suicides that happen because people just werent ready and couldnt cope. How do you just keep further oppressing already oppressed people by calling a baby a punishment?
Point blank not everyone can raise a child. And before we worry about unborn children we need to focus on the already born children that are existing in the system and growing up with no love. So #Prolifers i mean #AntiChoice people go adopt like 10 of those kids before you try to speak on what someone should do with their own body.
As for this post, i was a 14 year old rape victim who got pregnant. I saw this & wanted to pull this girl through my phone & into my arms. No1 can understand what a hard decision that child had to make. Or how much this decision and what happened to her will stay with her forever. This is just one example of why being Pro Choice is important.
Lack of access to abortion has a body count, yet you claim to be #ProLife. -ShiShi
