Abortion is murder.
Oh wait, you’re serious, aren’t you?
Oh… oh dear.
Abortion bans don’t need exceptions for the life of the mother because of “modern technology and science,” Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) said Thursday.
“With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance” of an abortion necessary to save the life of the mother, Walsh said after a debate with Tammy Duckworth, his Democratic opponent, according to the Chicago Tribune. “… There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.”
Walsh’s comments bring to mind Missouri GOP Rep. Todd Akin’s assertion that rape exceptions aren’t necessary in abortion bans because the female body can’t get pregnant in cases of “legitimate rape.” Akin’s comments have severely damaged his effort to unseat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.
In February 2011, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) spoke on the House floor about an abortion she had because the pregnancy was threatening her life.
Walsh, whose cable news appearances and tea party rhetoric have frequently drawn headlines, was trailing Duckworth 52 percent to 38 percent in September, according to the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. A We Ask America poll conducted earlier this week found a tiny lead for Walsh, 47 percent to 46 percent.
Why doesn’t the media call motherfuckers out on blatant lies like this. These motherfuckers say anything they want, and then the motherfuckers who vote for them repeat the same bullshit over and over - and I can’t believe this fucking tool is leading in polls.
I can’t even come up with the words to explain just how angry this statement makes me, how disappointed it makes me.
The idea that a man with no medical degree or concept of the possible pregnancy complications that can and DO happen that could kill the pregnant person gets to say something like this as nonchalantly and flippantly as he has is disgusting. The idea that he gets to say this as if he’s some kind of expert on the matter upsets me to no end.
What this quote is implying in a larger sense is that NO ONE should die, ever, because SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY. Does he not realize that people die in childbirth all the time and science and technology still can’t save them? I mean, if people are dying in childbirth then they can most certainly die during a not full-term pregnancy, too.
I don’t understand why the media absolutely REFUSES to call these assholes out. I don’t understand why he is still winning against Tammy Duckworth. I don’t understand why he hasn’t burned just like Akin did.
It’s time that the ignorance these male politicians have regarding the female reproductive system needs to be punished. You don’t get to talk about stuff you have no fucking clue about and not face the repercussions of it.
Okay, maybe, but not if it’s written in Comic Sans.

I love this blog. So much.

I’m just gonna let that last line sink in: “There is a significant segment of white opinion that continues to find efforts to combat racism more objectionable than the racism itself.” (via ethiopienne)
On racism and why “colourblindness” towards race is bullshit that doesn’t help anyone.
AAAAH I had a long answer and it got deleted.
Okay, so you’re ascribing this “right to life” at conception, I assume?
Exactly when during conception? The acrosomal reaction of the sperm tunneling through the zona pellucida? The fusion of cell membranes? The ovum completing meiosis II? The fusion of genetic material?
Why then? Why not earlier? Why not when the sperm is a centimeter away from the egg? That sperm and egg still have so much potential to become a wanted human being, after all.
Say, if this were in-vitro fertilization, and I had a fertilized egg, is that one human being? Because I could split it in two before implanting it and it would (with successful implantation) develop into twins. Should I do that? Doesn’t the “other” twin (and which one is that?) have as much of a right to life as the first one?
Your language (“every human being has the right to life”) makes it sound like there are clear answers to these questions, and there simply aren’t. This much is clear: some pregnant people don’t want to be pregnant, and I’m not going to force them to stay pregnant.
As for your rape-victim comment, I don’t see how this is relevant. I’m only recommending abortion for one group of people: people who want an abortion.
“Conception” is not a magical hard line. Just because a politician told you so does not make it true.
First of all, it wasn’t run by students, so the name is just completely wrong.
I helped people at the Women’s Centre run a booth offering pro-choice information (like, real facts) just outside the room they were in at the Student Life Centre.
We got some pamphlets from them to look over, and they were SO MUCH BULLSHIT.
At least two of them used this picture:
They were claiming that it was a 6-week-old fetus. Um… it’s not. It’s too big for that.
Another pamphlet claimed that a 4-month-old fetus was 8 inches long. Um… no. It’s about 4.5 inches.
If the anti-choice people are so right, then why do they have to lie about fucking everything? Oh wait, I know. It’s because if they used real facts everyone would realise that being “pro-life” makes no sense. They have to lie in order to get support.
THEY ARE JUST SO FULL OF SHIT
I’m really angry right now.
I may need to go watch Chicago.
I will always reblog this when I can.
Mommy, I am only 8 inches long, but I have all my organs. I love the sound of your voice. Every time I hear it, I wave my arms and legs. The sound of your heart beat is my favorite lullaby.
Mommy, today I learned how to suck my thumb. If you could see me, you could definitely tell that I am a baby. I’m not big enough to survive outside my home though. It is so nice and warm in here.
You know what Mommy, I’m a boy!! I hope that makes you happy. I always want you to be happy. I don’t like it when you cry. You sound so sad. It makes me sad too, and I cry with you even though you can’t hear me.
Mommy, my hair is starting to grow. It is very short and fine, but I will have a lot of it. I spend a lot of my time exercising. I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes, and stretch my arms and legs. I am becoming quite good at it too.
You went to the doctor today. Mommy, he lied to you. He said that I’m not a baby. I am a baby Mommy, your baby. I think and feel. Mommy, what’s abortion?
I can hear that doctor again. I don’t like him. He seems cold and heartless. Something is intruding my home. The doctor called it a needle. Mommy what is it? It burns! Please make him stop! I can’t get away from it! Mommy! HELP me!
Mommy, I am okay. I am in Jesus’s arms. He is holding me. He told me about abortion. Why didn’t you want me Mommy?
Every Abortion Is Just …
One more heart that was stopped. Two more eyes that will never
see. Two more hands that will never touch. Two more legs that will never run. One more mouth that will never speak
If you’re against abortion, reblog this
…the fuck is this?
EIGHT INCHES LONG AT ONE MONTH? WITH ARMS AND LEGS? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
SCIENCE AND FACTS ARE FOR THE HEARTLESS SLUTS WHO KILL BABIES
JESUS HATES FACTS. EVEN THOUGH HIS DAD INVENTED THEM.
What is this anti-choice bullshit.
I’m happy you can count body parts, but if you take a developmental psychology course you’d know that fetuses don’t really think. Especially not at five months.
Also, fetuses without brains suck their thumbs, and move their arms and legs. This proves nothing. NOTHING.
