"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this…cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.

izafoundthis asked: Ok. Well I just want you to know that I do respect you and hope that one day you'll look back at all this and realize you were sort of being mean and counterintuitive. This message should be absent of skin color. This is a message from a human to a human. <3
whites are so condescending. fuck you cracker. society dont see you as “colorless” but if you wanna claim thats what you are fine. but im black and proud! whites always wanna take away somebodys identity…
Great point. We are black, period. They only play this color blind shit with us. Dont fall for the okie doke
Being “color blind” is a privileged ignorant white person perspective. It erases the experiences people of color have, like say uh… Racism! One white person to another, you’re an idiot dude. You have no clue what the implications of what you’re saying are. Sorry to be a white lady talking about race, but us white people gotta tell other white people to stop being racist ignorant shits and stop making all the black and brown people do all the work. K. Done.
