There's apparently a group of people who consider themselves "Pro-life feminists." Now, you might be thinking, "WTF?!" because obviously pro-life is the ridiculous arbitrary demand for women to carry their children because We Say So whereas feminism is all about women's rights.
I mean if you asked me, pro-life feminism is "I'm all about women's rights, except abortion because it's your fault you got pregnant you dumb whore. Nope, don't care if you were raped or if birth control failed, your fault."
It's like reading Stephanie Meyers' feminist-rebuttal all over again.
"Modern feminism has lost sight of the true meaning of feminism in the regards that modern feminism does not acknowledge the value of women who choose to stay home rather than work in the "business" world, or the value of a child if it is in the mother's womb."
Being a stay-at-home mom girly-girl is the NEW feminism!
But no seriously last time I checked feminism meant "The advocacy of women`s rights on the grounds of sexual equality," not "Fuck what you want! It's all about having a successful career and not wanting kids and having multiple boyfriends! Feminism means YOU ADOPT OUR IDEALS OR DIE!"
"Pro-life feminists respect ALL human life, and they do not place their morality on people - including the unborn - by deciding who should live and who should die."
Once again more of that fucking stupid 'abortion is killing' backhanded bullshit, stated as though everyone - including the reader - is already accepting that yes, abortion is killing. Even though you'd be just as likely to step on a tapeworm and consider it 'killing' since any doctor-approved abortion has to be done early.
"Some people call pro-life feminists "anti-choice" - well, pro-life feminists *are* anti-choice, when it comes to abortion. They are also anti-choice when it comes to rape or the abuse of women. No one should have the "choice" to rape or abuse women either. No one should have the "choice" to beat a woman or not. Pro-life feminists want REAL choice for women. A REAL choice where women have the option to *choose* effective birth control, effective being the key word."
I like how they say "no one choses to be raped" and instantly lampshade that their entire agenda is to, in the instance that it results in a pregnancy, say it's your fault for not using birth control. Getting pregnant is your choice, even if it involved rape.
"Abortion doesn't "liberate" women - it "liberates " men."
Wow, that is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Wait, no...
"Abortion on demand liberates men who want sex without strings, promises, responsibility, or the rituals of romance. And if the woman has the baby? Hey, that's her problem. She could have gotten an abortion - she chose to carry the child; let her pay for her choice."
THAT is the Goddamn stupidest thing I've ever heard, the whipped cream topping of moron-statements.
It's the kind of ack-basswards horseshit that becomes the radicalist feminists - the kind of women who are convinced that sex is something done by men and to women.
Women having abortions frees them from the responsibility of taking on a child if they cannot or do not wish to. Insisting that the act does nothing other than free men from responsibility, ignoring the entire physical, emotional, and financial repercussions from a woman carrying, birthing, and raising a child, is all kinds of fucking idiotic I can't even believe.
"Abortion also "liberates" others - not the pregnant woman."
And this is the cherry on top. They consider themselves feminists, hammer on how important women's rights are, yet they spend an entire page telling you how much women's rights don't matter. It's the fetus - always the fetus. The baby is the more important part. A life that is barely the size and intelligence of a mosquitofish is more important than a woman's life.
So, here you go. Pro-life feminists? Yeah, when I said -
"pro-life feminism is "I'm all about women's rights, except abortion because it's your fault you got pregnant you dumb whore. Nope, don't care if you were raped or if birth control failed, your fault.""
- that's pretty much exactly what it is.
