Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

Why a "Choicer" thinks we can't be pro-woman.

Pro-life is inherently anti-women. It is a position that logically follows from the views held by the pro-life camp.

Abortion may victimize women (which I highly disagree with), however it is not the abortion that victimizes her - she had every opportunity to say "no, I will stay pregnant." No one forced her to get an abortion. They might argue that our society is one that forces women to choose between abortion and pregnancy - however that's society victimizing her, not abortion.

So even though our society most certainly uses abortion as a way to victimize women, abortion is somehow not victimizing women?

Taking away abortion rights will make it so that not only will society victimize her, saying she should have never gotten pregnant to begin with, but the unsympathetic society that would push her towards abortion would now remove her from the work-force, college, high school, and essentially end any career-woman-esque life she might have wanted.

The entire reason women are "pushed to abortion" is because our society knows that with the advent of abortion comes the idea that we do not need to treat mothers as equals because they could have easily chosen abortion. This mindset hurts mothers and as a result shows any pregnant woman that life as a mother is a fate worse than death. With this knowledge, pregnant women feel compelled into an unwanted abortion in order to save themselves from the horror of motherhood that our society has created.

Removing the right to an abortion will not solve the problem of women being victimized when pregnant, because abortion is NOT what victimizes women, our unsympathetic society it. It will only exasperate it, making women even MORE victimized now that they have absolutely no option, because the unsympathetic society will NOT be affected by banning abortion!

No, if society realizes that women get pregnant and have babies and there is nothing anyone can do about it, they will be forced to change. It is very easy for society to be complacent when it comes to mother's rights because, like I said, they feel that because women made the choice to have the child they have "dug their own grave".

How can this be anything other than an affront to woman's rights?

Because of this pro-life logically leads to an anti-women view, because removing abortion only makes things worse for women and does nothing to end the "victimization."

I could go into it more, but I imagine most of you understand where I'm just summarizing and don't need me to spell it all out for you step-by-step.

And as for pro-child... we need to only look as far as the pro-life republican party's stance on welfare to know that's a crock of shit.

Har Har, when all else fails claim the pro-life side doesn't care about children. I'll be the first to admit that the republican party isn't the greatest when it comes to child care but neither are the bleeding heart democrats. It's a complicated issue and to make blanket statements is absurd.
