Only Two More Years Until My Optimum Abortion Time!
by: Liz Thatcher
Jezebel may have outdone themselves this time. In a Feb. 6 blog titled “What’s the Best Age to Have an Abortion” blogger Erin Gloria Ryan pontificates the pros and cons of getting an: abortion: at different ages. Her conclusion on the best age? “Taking into account access, ability to keep life plans intact, affordability, and likely relationship status, it’s 25.”
Oh, well that’s great to know!
In the discussion of pros and cons of teenagers under 18 getting abortions, Ms. Ryan stated that it could be hard because “kids still living under their religious parents’ roof may have some Bachmannian hang ups about when life begins and how totally damned they’d be if they ended their pregnancies.” Ironically enough, Salon.com, another liberal rag, published an article on the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade titled “So What if Abortion Ends Life?” In this article, Mary Elizabeth Williams argued that feminists can’t continue to pretend that pregnancy isn’t a life if it was unplanned or you don’t desire a child. “Fetuses aren’t selective like that. They don’t qualify as human life only if they’re intended to be born.”
Apparently Jezebel missed this [equally atrocious, yet honest] article.
Don’t worry, it gets worse.
The only con listed for the age range of 18-23 is simply the “cost, access, you can’t use your parents’insurance: because they’ll know.” Never mind the fact that you are taking the life of a child … oh wait, silly me. Jezebel is full of feminists that deny the science of life at conception. But it’s totes cool to lie or hide the fact that you got an abortion from your parents … even though it is a: risky: medical procedure. How irresponsible can these women get?
In the 27-30 age range, a pro of getting an abortion was “if you saved up a little, you could probably afford a designer abortion. A Marc Jacobs abortion, in teal.” Feminists always know how to keep it classy!
If you’ll recall, Jezebel was the site that had the: freak out session: on the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade because they feared that states were shutting down women’s rights to have abortions whenever the heck they felt like it, and attacked Norma McCorvey, the infamous Jane Roe and plaintiff in their sacred court case.
With garbage like this, is it any wonder that pro-choicers are losing ground?
