  •  You know why those ignorant (14+ / 0-)

    young people are so against abortions? Because they secretly use those clinics when nobody's looking.

    If those clinics didn't exist and there was no place to have an abortion that was safe, they'd all be activists FOR safe, legal abortion.

    The reality of their lives is that for the past 40 years, millions more women than previously were safe from coathangers and punctured uterus and fatal hemorrhages. They've lived in the paradise that safe legal abortion created for them. It has kept women from dying so that these kids have never had to hear of these horrors.

    It's almost as if women have to be sacrificed every 50 years so that the world will remember.

    And some of them just hate women. The idea of her being in control of whether her body gets pregnant or gives birth is too much for misogynists to bear. They like the privileges that men have and they benefit from them so they'd like to keep women controlled and afraid.

    Two ignorant strains of idiots threaten the lives of women and ironically, they've all been "assisted" in their stupidity by something that has saved women's lives for 40 years.

    I'm 39. I'm no idiot. My mother got knocked up in '72. She told me all the stories about how it was before that. Some of these idiot kids have parents that are MY age or not very much older. For almost two generations they've all lived without the terror of drastic actions of a woman determined not to give birth. They'll never understand that women will never stop killing themselves to prevent pregnancy and if they don't care about that "slut", they hate us all.

    Jesus help us all.
