Anonymous said: Do you agree there is such thing as unborn humans?

proudly-pro-choice:

No I’m actually convinced that they’re potatoes in there.

Really? Yes, obviously. A fetus being carried by a human being is human as well. It’s not a sentient human being though, and it doesn’t have the right to someone else’s body unless they’re willing.

This is a really interesting article. 

Sidewalk counselling doesn’t work, and they fully admit it, but they continue to harass people anyways… Smh. - Paige

Great article about how “sidewalk counselling” does nothing but hurt people, the majority of the time. Antichoicers don’t really seem to care about the pain and suffering of born people, though, so this will probably make little difference to them.

Anonymous said: So is some who is brain dead or paralyzed less important compared to a healthy human being?

proudly-pro-choice:

Well, people who have been pronounced brain dead are frequently taken off of life support to ease any pain they may have. And last I checked, paralyzed people are still sentient, autonomous human beings. Furthermore, both of the examples you listed are not using someone else’s body against their will. But hey! Good job using these people as pawns in an attempt to further your argument.

The only time a man has the absolute say in a pregnancy is if he’s carrying it.

Sigh….we will except the whole “men having babies” shit. But NOT accept that a fetus should…

Gender is very much black and white. There are TWO genders. MALE or FEMALE. Females are identified in one way by their female sex organs and reproductive organs. As males are identified by their male sex organs, and male reproductive organs. 

Hey guys. You know what to do with this one. Tear it up.

On the left is Richie, my fiancé, about a year and a half into our relationship and pre-t. He had come out as trans to me about a few months prior to that. On the right is Richie 4 years later and almost 3 years on testosterone. We’ve been together almost 5 years now and his birthday is coming up.
I created a secret top surgery fund for him in hopes to surprise him for his birthday on August 30th. I’m not at all expecting $5000 to be raised by then, in fact, I don’t have any kind of expectation towards the amount raised before his birthday. I just wanted to get this started for him as a surprise to remind him that there are so many people that love him and support him and are wishing him a happy birthday and I know any amount donated would be the best birthday surprise he could ever receive.
Right now, Richie doesn’t believe that top surgery will ever be a reality for him and I want to change that incredibly dangerous mind set. A whopping 41% of trans* people attempt suicide. Richie’s dysphoria, negativity and hopelessness has been growing at an alarming rate. I want to do everything I can to prevent and/or limit the amount of pain he has to deal with on a daily basis. Top surgery would undoubtably eliminate a big chunk of it.
Richie has been medically transitioning for almost 3 years. He has identified as trans for about 4 years. In that time, he has seen so many of his friends within the community get top surgery and it has been a silent struggle for him. He has become more reclusive, isolated and depressed. I don’t want Richie to ever feel inhibited by his body and/or isolated because of it. This year for his birthday, I want him to truly believe that top surgery is entirely possible for him and unquestionably going to happen in the near future. I can’t do that alone, so I’m reaching out to his family, friends, my followers on tumblr, as well as any kind strangers who may know what it feels like to deal with dysphoria or just want to help out an amazing guy who has done so much for others. I honestly can’t imagine anything better than knowing that we all helped make it possible for him to live happily, authentically and without fear or insecurity of his identity, by contributing to the single most liberating and defining moment in his life. I know top surgery will change his life forever and I know that it is something that will give him back that contagious spark and thirst for life that he used to have and remind him that he once thought the world was beautiful and it still is.
Please spread the word by reblogging and if you’re capable of donating anything, you have no idea how much it is appreciated. No amount is too little so please do not feel embarrassed if you can only donate a dollar or two, I’m still just as humbled by your generosity.
For those of you who have already donated and/or have been reblogging and sharing this with your followers or friends, I am forever indebted to you all.

I will not stop reblogging this until he doesn’t ever have to worry about wearing a binder for 12+ hours a day and come home with bruises on his back, or be afraid that someone will see the outline of his binder through his shirt and be outed, or doesn’t have to close his eyes whenever he takes a shower because the sight of his chest right now makes him feel further disconnected from his body. This is no way to live and as his partner, I can’t sit idly by and allow him to continue half-living like this.

I’ve gotten in touch with Rodeoh.com, thanks to an amazing follower Stefanie. They have agreed to offer a $25 gift certificate to all contributors of $100 or more!!
If you haven’t, check out the website, there are so many great products from rodeoh and hopefully this will encourage more people to donate for a great cause!

SIGNAL BOOST. Let’s keep this going! I’ve seen pictures of random pretty girls get hundreds of thousands of reblogs and likes. Let’s like and reblog something that will potentially change someone’s life forever. You can make an impact that significant and powerful in a strangers life, it’s your choice and you can make that choice right now by reblogging the hell out if this.

I know we still have a month left but there’s still a long long ways to go. We need to raise $3266 in the next 30 days, guys! That’s about $108 a day. I know it’s an ambitious goal but if you can spare $5, please please do. I can’t stress how much every little donation counts and adds up. If everyone who reblogged or liked this was capable of donating a dollar, Richie’s top surgery goal would have been met by now.
Before you just hit the like and/or reblog button and move on, I urge you to seriously consider if you can spare a couple dollars. I would never ask for help if I didn’t need it. Right now, I need it more than ever.

Anonymous said: I don´t understand this person tattooed-messianic-tiffy. lolatprolife didnt post a discussion post, or an argument, or anything of the sort. Simply a reblog if you... thing. Why couldnt she just leave it alone? There is plenty of actual pro choice discussion post she can reply to. Does she have to respond to EVERYTHING that has to do with pro choice?

tattooed-messianic-tiffy:

your-lies-ruin-lives:

Just be patient. Eventually she’ll flounce from that blog or delete it.. and start another one in the hopes of starting afresh. But she can’t help herself. And stalks the abortion and prochoice tags no matter what. 

This is her pattern and has been for almost a year, at least. 

I have had this tumblr account since like 2011. I often change my name, but I never act like anyone but myself. I don’t hate follow, nor do I stalk tags, or blogs. I don’t even have time for that shit. It’s hilarious that you don’t make the same claims about other pro lifers!! lol I see others who have more interaction with pro choicers than I do. 

Actually, I can see in my archives at least two different names that were also yours. survivorforlife(andsomenumbers) and lightnshadows or something along those lines. You having deleted them both to be able to tell that lie won’t work. All someone’d have to do is go to the first few months of this blog’s archives. ;)

Anonymous said: I don't think the guy should have absolute say, but I feel he should have a say in the matter. Not to where he gets to decide whether an abortion takes place or not, but I feel he should voice his opinion.

Sure. He can give his opinion, but the person who would have to carry the pregnancy has the final word. It is their body/life/job/school/etc.. after all.. that would take a bite.

You mean fetuses. How about you focus on the starving or the homeless. Y’know, people who need help.

Yeah I mean fetuses. Fetuses are human beings. 
Why do I focus on the unborn? Because they are the most vulnerable human beings of all.

Actually, they’re not. Why don’t you focus on people who are suffering and starving? Fetuses don’t actually need you, I promise.

Some fetuses do suffer from abortion, as some abortions are done past viability, when they are able to feel pain.
All organisms of our species are human beings. A fetus is an organism of our species. Therefore he is a human being. He is one of us.
A human being doesn’t have lesser value because he has not developed the ability to suffer. The equality of human beings means that no function can be the standard by which we judge one to be a valuable, and another not valuable.
This is what equality is:  to regard every human being as being like oneself.

Any abortion done passed viability is done because of medical emergencies, deformities, or health issues. Just because a fetus is human does not make it a person. Even if it was a person it has no rights to the body it’s occupying. Simple. Equal rights do not mean special rights.

The Gosnell criminal case showed that that’s a lie.
The women coming in for third trimester abortions were not there because their babies had genetic defects.
And I know for a fact that certain Canadian provinces send their elective late-term abortions to the United States for lack of doctors.
 And even if there were deformities, that’s no excuse to kill a human being. That’s ableist.
If you say that a human being is not a person, that’s discriminatory and against the principle of equality. The basis for human rights is the intrinsic dignity of human beings based on their shared rational nature. Every human being is ontologically equally: meaning there’s no one human better than another human being, regardless of any characteristics you can name. That’s the basis on which women, people of color, and disabled people are granted equal rights, and if chip away at that fundamental notion, then you chip away at the concept of equal rights, especially for the disabled, because the functionalist reasons invoked to deny the unborn their rights would eventually be used to deny the disabled. If only a certain level of awareness, consciousness, or mobility makes one a human being, then implicitly, many disabled people should not have rights.
The fetus does not have a right to a body; but he is entitled to his parents’ care, and he’s entitled to life. And even if the fetus occupies a uterus against the mother’s will, that’s still no justification to kill a baby, especially since the occupation is temporary and its end is foreseeable. Nobody has the right to kill a baby for occupying one’s property or for violating any other right. That’s obviously non-sense. The baby isn’t responsible for being there in the first place, and killing him is making him the scapegoat for actions he didn’t take.
There are no special rights being invoked here. But there is responsibility being invoked. Adults have responsibility for children, especially children they created.

I’m not going to read your essay of a post, just make a few points:
1. Gosnell is an outlier. Added to the fact that because of anti-choice laws and intimidation in front of clinics pro-lifers created Gosnell. If you left the protesting alone, if you didn’t make abortion difficult to get he wouldn’t have existed.
2. No. Knowing you cannot care for a child with a disorder, or knowing the child will live with nothing but pain is not ableism. Stop using terms you don’t know the definition of.
3. Responsibility is not allowing someone to use your body while you are unwilling. You have a responsibility to care for yourself first and abortion is a responsible choice.
4. I would like to see the source of your ‘fact.’

Twocrowns, where the outliers are total law.. but the prolife clinic bombers, doctor killers.. are totally just a rarity. Logic fail.

That’s disgusting. Like.. 50 shades of nasty.

Anonymous said: Pro-lifers utterly baffle me because it's like they don't understand how hard it is for a woman to get an abortion. They honestly believe that people use it as a method of birth control, when honestly it's the worst, most heartbreaking experience ever. No one ever wants an abortion, but sometimes it's just the least shitty option of all the horrible, heartbreaking options. I just wish they'd try to understand before shaming anyone who even considers abortion.

Two points. One, not everyone who can get pregnant identifies as a woman, so “people who can get pregnant” = better phrase. 

Two. That would require them to care about anything but the fetus for five minutes.

The only time a man has the absolute say in a pregnancy is if he’s carrying it. 

Totally because that’s not his kid too or anything.

Like I said, if he’s carrying it, it’s then his absolute say. Discussion with partners can take place but ultimately, full stop final call is the one who has to carry it.
