The wild reactions to the news that in the USA there are States which criminalise abortion (as they criminalise every other murder) has been really telling. In TV discussions, including here in the UK, what stands out starkly is the way women who describe themselves as “pro-choice” (i.e. in favour of having the choice to kill their unborn child) have reacted to the very idea that there may be a return to protecting the unborn child in law. Hard as nails, is the phrase which kept coming to my mind, watching and listening to them. They speak about having had an abortion the way the rest of us would speak about having bought the wrong flavour of… let’s see… milkshake, perhaps?
This thread, then, isn’t really about abortion per se – we have a pro-life thread for that (and a segment in the above video to remind us, if any of us need reminding about the sheer barbarism involved in an abortion) and we’ve had many discussions on the subject in dedicated threads. The purpose of this thread is to examine the extent to which the “right” to kill their unborn child has coarsened women and made them hard as nails. I can see it plain as daylight in any conversation on the subject, whether on TV or in person. And I see absolutely NO “agonising”. Watching the delighted victors in the Irish abortion referendum literally dancing in the streets of Dublin put paid to that lie, once and for all.
Personally, as a woman myself, I think the “pro-choice” females are utterly self-centred women who – by the way – do not allow the fathers of their unborn child any say in the matter. And that on the grounds that it’s the women’s body, her choice.
Let’s hope they keep their mouths shut, then, in any conversation about men’s bodies – such as the current scandal of the high rate of male suicides. Whether it’s their son (you know, the one who made it through the womb) or their “partner”/husband, or father, the message, in my world, is clear; it’s NOT your body so mind your own business.
“Pro-choice” women are self-centred, coarse, and hard as nails. That’s my view – what about you?
