There is still a lot of debate about abortion. I’ve been reading up on both sides and I’ve seen misconceptions and confusion on both sides. Some of this is from the debate of when does life begin, at conception or at birth. I will not join in that debate for one simple reason. I DO NOT HAVE A UTERUS. My opinion is moot because I have a penis and should not be telling someone with a uterus what to do with it. No matter how many good points I might have, at the end of the day, I have no idea what it’s like to live with a uterus and will never carry a life inside of a uterus.
For those that believe life starts at conception, they claim abortion is murder. This is listed as one of the Crimes Against Humanity on the United Nations Website. Another crime against humanity is forced pregnancy or forced birth. Some might argue that murder is the worst of the two, but I disagree. Taking another person’s life is a crime with exceptions such as self-defense. For the devout Pro-Lifers, forced pregnancy would offer no exceptions. If the woman is raped, she still must carry the child. If the woman miscarries, (which can happen even if the woman wants to keep the child) and it does not exit the womb, she still must carry the dead fetus to term.
Some Pro-Lifers believe people who support abortion only want to go around killing babies all day. This is negative propaganda. This isn’t about wanting to kill babies; this is about not allowing the authorities to force people to do things they don’t want to do. They are currently taking away rights from women. Soon they’ll take away rights from the LGBT+ community. Then they’ll take away rights from people of color. They want to bring back segregation. Eventually, they’ll start taking away our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. If you think the people you voted for won’t take away your firearms, you’re wrong.
This has never been about wanting to kill babies. This is about stopping the country from turning into a fascist dictatorship. I want to live in a world where we don’t need abortion. To prevent abortions, men can get vasectomies which are 100% reversible. You can’t call it forced sterilization if it’s reversible. To prevent abortions, we must put an end to Rape Culture. To prevent abortions, we must make advances in the medical field so they can save the life of the mother and the child if there are complications during pregnancy. Fight for those things and fight for women to keep their rights. Because in the end, you’re fighting for everyone’s rights.
