The Birds and the SOB’s

Friday, February 5th, 2010

I’m getting really tired of the Anti-Abortion people. I refuse to call them ‘Right-to-Life’ – because the only lives for which they care are people who share their narrow values. I don’t respect them at all because they refuse to acknowledge their role in all the abortions performed and they are basically lying to anyone who will listen.

To me, abortion should only be a choice of last resort. It’s a tragedy for everyone involved.  Ideally, every pregnancy should be planned. I know that’s not going to happen but we could get a lot closer if misguided anti-abortion activists got out of the way. These are the same people who oppose sex education in school unless abstinence is the only choice taught, oppose the widespread distribution of inexpensive birth control methods to anyone who wants them, oppose any sex between anyone not married (and, of course, no gays at all), oppose any “abortion pill” such as RU486, oppose masturbation, and now they’re becoming more vocal in opposing Plan B – an emergency contraception pill.

These fanatics think they have an exclusive pipeline to God and the rest of us are murderers if we support a woman’s right to choose. They think Plan B pills cause an abortion by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. But they’re about the only nitwits who define abortion in that way. Virtually everyone else in the world regards Plan B as an emergency contraceptive which PREVENTS a pregnancy from occurring in the first place. There is no abortion!

Let’s be honest. Anti-Abortion people are against much more than abortion – they’re really against any sex outside of a Christian marriage. So when an uninformed minor cannot get birth control, then is denied the use of emergency contraception, becomes pregnant, knows she cannot talk to her doctor without her parents knowing, panics, and then has an abortion – who’s really to blame?

Who are the REAL murderers here?
