A Life Worth Living
I read this recently and I had to say something.
““My own personal experience with abortion — and I don’t think we talk about this enough — abortion can be another word for mercy,” the 39-year-old told the women of “The View.”
“We don’t know,” Hathaway continued. “We know that no two pregnancies are alike, and it follows that no two lives are alike, it follows that no two conceptions are alike.””
The outcome of abortion is always the same – the fetus dies. This nonsense about “mercy” is likely in reference to two things: a baby being born with a disease, deformity or some other defect, and a baby being born into some degree of poverty.
Therefore, it follows, if the child’s life will be less than ideal, they’re better off dead. And what is “ideal” anyway? For most people, it’s being middle-class at the very least, and perfectly healthy. So if they’re poor, they’re better off dead. If they’re born with a disorder or disease, they’re better off dead. If they’re born missing a limb, or born blind, etc – they’re better off dead.
That is highly, highly and deeply offensive. None of us, really, have the right to decide whose life is worthy or not. This is why I think feminists are the most monstrous of all people, because they regularly target the most innocent of human beings for the most specious of reasons.
““So how can we have a law, how can we have a point of view on this that says we must treat everything the same?” the “Les Miserables” actress said. “When you allow for choice, you allow for flexibility, which is what we need in order to be human.””
For pro-abortionists, it’s never about the innocent human being in the equation. It’s always about the mother. Oh, and choice to do what, exactly? They never actually say it out loud. You’re choosing to end an innocent life, and usually for the most specious and petty of reasons. So if a woman can’t kill her child for whatever reason, she isn’t “human”. That’s also monstrous and deeply offensive.
A pregnancy, while it may have permanent effects on the body, is ultimately temporary. The woman carries the child for approximately nine months. Then she gives birth, and it is no longer attached to her body. After that nine months she can abandon the baby, give it up for adoption, or whatever. She doesn’t have to keep it. But then feminists will whine about how the pregnancy made her fat, or gave her stretch marks, or whatever.
““Looking back on photos of this beloved film that shaped the lives and careers of so many—mine included—I am struck by the fact that the young female characters in this movie built their lives and careers in a country that honored their right to have choice over their own reproductive health,” the actress captioned photos of “The Devil Wears Prada.””
Nobody has a problem with choices over reproductive health as long as a human being does not lose their life. They bring up everything else under the sun but that. That is the core of our argument. That is the entire argument.
Furthermore, why didn’t they make the choice to refrain from engaging in behavior that might result in a pregnancy in the first place? Why is that never an option? Why don’t they ever mention that? Women don’t get randomly and spontaneously pregnant. They, generally, choose to engage in behavior that will likely result in pregnancy, which is to have sexual intercourse.
There’s plenty of other things you can do besides penile-vaginal penetration. I won’t outline it as I don’t want to be that crude but there’s other things that don’t involve the one thing that will lead to pregnancy.
I hate feeling as if I’m telling people how to conduct their sexual lives, but none of us would have to do so if they weren’t killing innocent human beings. I don’t care what you do as long as you aren’t hurting anyone, and abortion not only hurts the most vulnerable of us all, it kills the most vulnerable of us all.
