My teacher just compared abortion to holocaust. And most people in my class agreed that abortion is a definite no. And I just...I'm so angry, I don't understand how people can think like that

Hi there - I hear ya! As the saying goes, “DON’T GET ME STARTED”

ON THE 100% HYPOCRISY OF THE “PRO LIFE” MOVEMENT, WHICH IS ANTI WOMEN, STRAIGHT UP AND PLAIN:

It really bothers me when people say that abortion is “always a difficult choice”. 

What if it isn’t? What if the pregnant person always knew they would get an abortion if they got pregnant? What if they were relieved after the abortion? What if they were excited to sign the paperwork and get this over with? 

Normalize abortion. It’s a medical procedure. You don’t have to feel badly or tormented for getting one. 

You are not a bad person for having an abortion. You are not a “baby killer”, you are not going to Hell, you are not a monster.

You are also not a bad person if you don’t feel bad about your abortion. Be happy, be relieved! If that’s how you feel, that’s how you feel and there’s nothing wrong with that.

You made the choice that was best for you. You took care of yourself. Never let anyone give you shit for that.

Why is it against the law for a child to have sex, and yet anti-choicers want to force children to carry pregnancies? 

If children are not ready for sex (which they sure as hell are not) then they are most definitely not ready to carry a pregnancy. 

When it really comes to it, forced-birthers view not only grown pwu (people with uteruses) as incubators, but minor children as well. It’s dangerous and disgusting.

abortion should always be accessible, affordable, and available at any point during a pregnancy

no two pregnancies are alike; there is always a chance that people will suddenly need access to an abortion, even late into their pregnancy. laws that ban abortion after a certain milestone seriously endanger the lives of people in these circumstances and ignore the reasons why people seek late-term abortion (i.e. serious medical emergencies). people do not get abortions “for fun” and the myth that they do is anti-choice propaganda that is highly manipulative and very misleading. people do not get late-term abortions for the hell of it; they get them because it is a necessity.

and besides all that, other people’s reproductive choices are NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. keep your nose and your opinions out of it.

The truth is that I don’t give a damn why anyone has an abortion. I believe unconditionally in the right of people with uteruses to decide what grows inside of their body and feeds on their blood and endangers their life and reroutes their future. There are no ‘good’ abortions and 'bad’ abortions, there are only pregnant people who want them and pregnant people who don’t.
