Being pro-life does not mean you’re sexist.
Whoever decided to throw that analogy out there should be punched multiple times in the face.
Like really? What?
I hate abortion. I see it as the destruction of the process of life, which, to me, is the most basic fundamental miracle of the universe.
Fundamental miracle? hmmm. Here’s the thing, kid: It is sexist, but in some cases, like yours, it’s not a commissive sexism, it’s more of an omissive sexism. In other words, you don’t necessarily consider yourself morally superior based on your gender identification, but your views express that.
See, here’s the real illusion about abortion that both the pro-choice and anti-choice sides are pushing: That the choice is up for debate. The choice exists, there’s no stopping that. The debate is over who gets to make it. People who are pro-choice support the individual’s right to make decisions regarding their bodies. People who call themselves pro-life are in favor of the government making the decision. You can call it a immoral and come up with reasons and justifications all day long and it’s a fun exercise in rhetoric, but at the end of the day there’s only one thing really up for debate here: Who’s choice is it, the individual’s or the government’s?
Let me add this: If it’s the government’s decision and not the individuals than should it not also be the government’s decision to donate one of your kidney’s to a needy relative? Say mom has two good kidneys and, through know fault of her own, daughters are failing. Shouldn’t the government prevent, what you see as, the destruction of life by forcing mom to give one of the good kidneys to save daughters life? If daughter dies because mom made the choice to keep the kidney, we can call it immoral and grandstand and feel better about ourselves, but if government makes the choice, …well, how do we feel about ourselves then?
(Also, quick note of acknowledgment that abortion rights apply to anyone with a uterus, that includes trans-men and girls, not just women).
Things that are sexist: promoting ideology and laws that would directly and negatively affect women and other uterus owners. Is that really so hard to understand?
