An anti-choicer says that people that cannot afford to raise a child should not have sex.
that awkward moment when you can still have sex with your legs closed and get pregnant
Not sure how many Canadian followers you have but I thought you might be able to help get the word out. There’s an urgent recall on Alysena-28 birth control pills which may have too many placebo pills, which could result in unplanned pregnancies.
An anti-choice drop card placed in a condom package.
Question unrelated to abortion (kinda): Why are the condoms behind bulletproof glass or whatever the hell that is?
An anti-sex and anti-Planned Parenthood video.
These are the worst things they could come up with about Planned Parenthood?
These are the things I love about Planned Parenthood!
Yes yes and of course it’s Planned Parenthood’s fault that a bunch of teens have STIs.
There’s so much misinformation in here I just
More Republican bullshit.
The fact that employees WANT that coverage would logically mean they don’t want to be parents just yet but who thinks logically when it comes to vaginas, amirite?
STOP TREATING WOMEN LIKE CHILDREN
WE ARE PEOPLE WHO CAN MAKE OUR OWN FUCKING DECISIONS
YOU DO NOT NEED TO SAVE US
WE ARE NOT IN DANGER BECAUSE OF THE AVAILABILITY OF BIRTH CONTROL
WE ARE IN DANGER BECAUSE OF IDIOTS LIKE YOU WHO PRETEND YOU’RE HELPING AND DON’T UNDERSTAND SCIENCE
An anti-choicer shames a woman for having sex with her partner.
CONTRACEPTION MEANS YOU DON’T LOVE EACH OTHER
Also I’m really really sick of pleasure-shaming. Denying pleasure does not make you a better or more pious or less “sinful” person. STFU and stop trying to make the world a terrible place.
Every now and then, some anti-choicer still manages to amaze me with the absolutely ridiculous stuff they say.
MY WOMB IS A GRAVEYARD OF BABIES
Are you sure that’s not just the scars from the PCOS cysts that I want on the pill, over 12 years ago, to avoid? Since, you know, PCOS can render you infertile and incapable of producing those cute little babies you claim to see attached to the uterus, and sometimes the pill is the only way to regulate hormones so that the ovaries/uterus function properly?
I haven’t read anything so fucking blisteringly STUPID in months. My anger is softened by the Metalocalypse + BABY GRAVEYARD joke above, but honestly — if I met this guy, I would pull back my right arm and sock him in the jaw until his teeth splintered into shrapnel all over his fucking mouth. Like the ‘dead babies’ supposedly in my womb.
but no seriously, what?
a. fetuses? NOT ZYGOTES, NOT EMBRYOS, BUT 8 WEEK+ OLD FETUSES
im laughing really hard
imagine that you had thousands of 2 month old fetuses crammed into your uterus, which is, what, the size of your fist when not pregnant?
Also, what does this douchewaffle thing periods are? Does he think that all women just start bleeding from their vaginas for no reason, or does he know that it’s uterus lining?
ohhh my god i love republicans so much
suddenly my period feels really fuckin’ metal
IN MY VAGINA
antis never cease to amaze with the the bullshit they come up with
My town’s Planned Parenthood had booked a night with a homeopath to discuss more natural birth control options.
But, a whole bunch of people complained that Planned Parenthood shouldn’t support homeopathy so the event was cancelled.
While I don’t particularly love the idea of homeopathy myself,…
The problem is that homeopathy is… fake? Like, naturopathy, there is some merit to some aspects of naturopathy. But homeopathy is literally 100% a lie. If you tell a woman she can use homeopathy as birth control, you might as well be telling her that she can use wishful thinking as birth control. There are many “natural” birth control methods with some validity, like the rhythm method, but homeopathy? Is not one of them.
Planned Parenthood supporting homeopathy in any way shape or form really distresses me, because I’m not a big fan of lying to women. I’d be just as upset if they were holding a session on avoiding pregnancy via prayer. I would not trust a homeopath to provide valid medical advice for a pet hamster, much less a human woman, and I’m glad this event was cancelled.
I am with Essie on this one. Homeopathy is not the same as presenting natural birth options unless the entire message is “Using homeopathy is the same as using nothing because it isn’t a really and helpful thing. End of lesson.”
But they are having a homeopath in to discuss natural birth control options not “homeopathic birth control options”. So we just rule a person out entirely to talk about a subject that is important and valuable because they also believe some shit? If we did that in every case, no one could listen to anyone. What happened to intellectual discussion instead of ruling someone out from the beginning, based on their one-word identity that you haven’t given them the chance to define themself?
Seems backwards from what we normally stand for.
Though, maybe they shouldn’t have highlighted homeopathy in the event title. but otherwise the rhetoric behind the whole thing makes me uncomfortable.
Believing one stupid thing does not disqualify you from being a really valuable resource about other topics. But in this case I think it’s kind of like getting a lecture on astrophysics from someone who thinks the moon landing was faked, or advice on pandemic preparation from someone in the anti-vaccine movement. The two things are too closely tied for me to trust that I’m getting good advice.
If a homeopath wants to give a lecture on art, or baking, or abstract mathematics, I’m not really going to have an objection. A belief in homeopathy does not preclude the ability to bake a really kick-add cupcake. Similarly, if Planned Parenthood wants to host a lecture on natural/non-hormonal birth control, I might not care to attend it, but I’m not going to judge anyone else for going. It’s when you combine the two that I start to have serious problems.
As usual, Essie puts my thoughts in much more eloquent words than I could.
Also The Albertan had some good commentary in the other thread:
But this isn’t a discussion, it’s a presentation to provide information (at least, as far as I understand your original post). As such, there is a responsibility on the part of the organizers to ensure the information is correct, and anyone who supports homeopathy cannot be trusted to provide correct information (on medical matters). While allowing everyone to participate in discussion is important, I wouldn’t let someone who believes the earth is flat teach geography.
hey what if someone invented a machine that allowed women to transfer their pregnancies to men and then the government passed a law that if a woman didn’t want to have a baby the biological father was required to carry it how fast do you think birth control would stop being an issue
all of it
Especially the last one.
