As a rape survivor, I will always speak out for those who are raped as well as children conceived through rape.

As a rape survivor, I’ll speak out for victims and their choices to regain their sense of self and well being as they see fit. Their opinions and well being are the only that matter. 

As a rape survivor I will always speak out for survivors of the horrific crime that occured to them. I will also fight tooth and nail to defend the right stripped from me by my rapist and fight for it under every single circumstance.
As a rape survivor I will not pretend to know how they can heal best after their rape as I understand that their rape and my rape are different and that they are also different from me.
As a rape survivor I understand that whether someone chooses to carry the pregnancy and parent, carry and adopt out or seek an abortion that it is none of my business and that the only thing I should be saying is ‘I am here for you and you can talk to me any time you need me to.’

Pardon my angry rant, but as a decent human being, I cannot understand why in their right minds these women chose to make their parents’ rape all about them. That was probably the worst thing that ever happened to them in their lifetime, and they want to make their parents’ choice about them? They can’t talk about using people as political pawns and then turn around and do it to rape victims. Had their parent chosen to abort, they wouldn’t even know, so acting like abortion is some grave injustice that they escaped is incomprehensibly selfish.

Okay, so. One of the pro-birth ignoramus started a blog that mocks mine. I perceive it as a threat and antisemitic. I ask that you all send messages to abuse@tumblr.com, since it is trying to imitate me but be racist as hell about it. It mentions genocide and Hitler, steals the background of the art made by another blogger for my banner. Overall, it’s a threat. So please feel free to email Abuse and include the link and explain them a thing. Thanks!

The main difference between pro-choice violence and anti-choice violence is that we're more likely to call-out the bigots and genuinely violent people in our movement, and they couldn't give a shit.

That’s very very true!

I hate the term “sidewalk-counsellors”.
You know, people actually go to school and EARN diplomas to actually do counselling work?
You know to be a counsellor you’re supposed to be unbiased, non-judgemental, and supportive of the person you’re counselling?
Just because you slap a piece of paper with manipulative bullshit language on a stick, doesn’t mean you are a fucking counsellor.

stfuprolifers:

Some fetus was quoted saying this?!  Oh, my.
*Updated note: Ignoring the creepy fetus, the statement is ludicrous enough on its own.
It’s so much easier for anti-choicers to defend the personhood of a fetus than it is for them to even comprehend that those who have the ability to become pregnant or are pregnant are people too.
And this perception of viability is not just a mere opinion.  It’s how we judge when the fetuses can survive without someone else’s body.  There’s no reason for anyone’s rights to stop when a pregnancy starts.

The damage of abortion runs deep. http://ift.tt/1d8WZ3G

Mother Teresa cared more about the churches image then actual children though so I’m not gonna take her word on a damn thing when she entirely to blame for a pedophile being returned to a position of power in the church after he was removed.
I’m also not sure how sound her morals are when she also refused to provide basic necessities to the poor who came to her for help while squirreling away millions of dollars and saying if you were sick you had to ‘accept your lot and suffer as Christ did’ unless you happened to be her.

Anonymous said: Cultureshift says the most dangerous place to live in is "in the womb". Really? I thought war zones, abusive households, neighborhoods where a lot of gangs and violence take place were dangerous places to live in. So by his logic who cares if you live in a place where there is war, or with someone who is extremely abusive, or if you're already born. That's Cultureshift's logic, right? Fuck born people. Fetus fetus fetus. Sweet slimy fetus floating in the womb because fetus.

Pretty much. 

Usually I don’t reblog stuff like this, I try to keep it light and supportive, but I can’t get over how true this is about culture shift. His page makes me want to throw up.

My statement that the most dangerous place to live is in the womb is absolutely true. More human beings have been killed while living in their mother’s womb than have been killed by every war, plague, genocide, famine, and natural disaster in recorded history - combined. Here are the current numbers of human beings lost to abortion and their equivalent population centers…

5,000 killed per HOUR - Germantown, Ohio

120,000 killed per DAY - New Haven, Connecticut

840,000 killed per WEEK - Jacksonville, Florida

3,650,000 killed per MONTH - Los Angeles, California

43,800,000 killed per YEAR - Canada and Israel, combined

No one ever said that the human beings losing their lives in other ways is somehow irrelevant or less of a tragedy. Until we end the devaluation of human life propagated by human abortion, it’s hard to imagine a world free of people killing one another. After all, if we teach our sons and daughters that it’s perfectly fine to kill their sons and daughters, how can we honestly expect our world to embrace a culture of life?

Not to mention your-lies-ruin-lives is being soooo tolerant and respectful. Make your argument sound and respectful, Cultureshift at least has that. You don’t. At all.

I said,”Pretty much.”

Am I being blamed for what the anon said? Oh, that’s so prolife tactic. “ALL prochoicers are responsible for what Gosnell/anons/etc.. say. But prolifers are their own little islands. They cannot possibly be blamed for Scott Roeder, their clinic bombers, doctor killers.. etc.. ” Right? 

I am fairly certain I don’t control what my readers say/think/feel. (And I certainly do not have to be tolerant of the attempted oppression of people’s bodies.) 

My apologies, I mistook your words for the anons (who was disrespectful).

Pro-life has it’s radicals. Pro-choice has it’s radicals too, you can’t deny that. But, I want you to think of us and how we’ve had to deal with people who have bombed clinics (who are obviously not pro-life) in the same way you thought of gosnell, tiller, and the other people who give your movement a bad name. You can’t just sit around and call all pro-lifers clinic bombers and bad people and think that pro-choice is guiltless and resolved from anything. Your movement definitely has some bad apples too. You can’t deny that. But yet, you’re not a bad person for being pro-choice. I’m not a bad person for being pro-life.

Oh, and by the way, we don’t want to oppress women’s bodies. I’m a woman and I know that my baby’s body is not my body, so it’s not my choice to kill him/her. If it was my choice to terminate/remove/kill my baby whenever I wanted when I was still pregnant for any reason, that would be oppressing my son’s/daughter’s right to live. I wonder which one’s worse.

Tiller saved people’s lives. He didn’t accept patients that on a whim decided to have an abortion late that. The only reason abortions are done as late as he did them was to save the life of the pregnant person or to spare a born infant the pain of a short, agonizing life when it was found to have severe abnormalities that would mean NO CHANCE at survival beyond a few hours. None of us agree with what Gosnell did, but Tiller saved the pregnant people. I know your movement likes to tout the “Oh, look at that brave woman who gave birth to the fetus with its brain missing and it died after 18 hours!” .. but think about that. If it had any capacity to feel pain, it felt all 18 hours of pain. That infant felt all that pain because that family decided that’s how it wanted to handle it. I think that’s selfish and wrong to force an infant to live 18 hours in pain so you can take some scary pictures and put them up. But that’s (maybe or maybe not) just me. 

MY movement’s bad apples didn’t warrant an entry on YOUR movement’s growing page of terrorist actions.  MY movement doesn’t have a page with our bad apples, because our bad apples yell. We might get triggered and knock down some of your signs. But we’ve never bombed anyone, shot anyone, stalked anyone to their home and learned their routine, we’ve never trashed their place of work, we’ve never done any of the things the prolife movement has. 

Oh really, the pro-choice movement has only torn signs?:

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that my movement has no fault, because it does. But don’t ever think that your movement is completely clean and respectful. I was trying to be nice, but seriously, the fact that you think that pro-choicers have almost no fault is astounding.

And if Tiller was such a hero, why did he kill babies that could survive if born?

He definitely inspired cases like this one:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2277868/jennifer-McKenna-Morbelli-dies-having-abortion-33-weeks-pregnancy.html
Anyone, and I mean anyone that performs a late term abortion should not be given the title of saving lives. Not when the direct thing he does to new lives that could survive outside of the womb is kill them. But yeah, because the baby could suffer after birth, that’s perfect cause to excruciatingly burn them, give them a fatal heart attack, and give them a painful death in a different location at an earlier time right? That’s totally life saving work, oh yeah.

Where’s the reputable news source references to this? I can’t find anything on anything but prolife geared websites (which are faulty at best, damn wrong at worst.)

prochoice-or-gtfo:

I love the antichoice notion that fetuses are the only innocent ones. Is the pregnant person not innocent as well? If they have not committed a crime, they are, by definition, innocent. Having sex is not a crime. Why do only fetuses get labelled as innocent? Where is the outrage over the pregnant person’s innocence?

If you don’t believe that sex should be punished and that babies are not a punishment, why are you not defending the pregnant person’s innocence? I get it, you think abortion is murder, but the pregnant person has committed no crime and therefore does not deserve to be sentenced to 9 months of forced pregnancy and subsequent childbirth. Why does the fetus’ “innocence” (which it cannot be, as it cannot be guilty either) more important than the pregnant person’s innocence?

Tumblr is too fucking pro-murder and pro-death for me, or as you sickos like to refer to the act of slicing up an embryo in the womb that looks like a human into tiny little mutilated pieces and suck them out, “pro-choice”.

This sounds to me as if you really fear death and find it to be the ultimate bogeyman.  Good thing fetuses and embryos aren’t sentient, don’t know, don’t feel pain, and - above all else - do not care. 

I’m 98% against abortion, the only time I think it is acceptable is when it’s medically needed. Medically needed doesn’t mean “I’ve been having sex knowing that sex’s primary purpose is for reproduction, and even though we used a condom, I’m pregnant and I don’t want it.”

Sex is not only for reproduction.  If that were true, we wouldn’t have homosexual couples nor would anyone find body parts - that have nothing to do with reproduction - all that enticing.  (Seriously, when was the last time eyes, shoulders, butts, legs, and any number of other parts that people find sexy played a part in reproduction?)  Further, people who are infertile wouldn’t find sex appealing, since they cannot reproduce, so what would the point be?

No, reproduction is merely one of sex’s purposes.  Sex is about bonding with your mate(s).  Sex is also great for stress relief.  Sex is evolution’s gift to humanity, for both practical and pleasurable use. 

The only time abortion is okay is when the mothers life is being threatened. Some people, assuming a low percentage, get abortions as result of rape. I guess for some, baring a child that resembles their attacker would be too much.

Actually, I think another thing about victims of rape getting abortion is the fact that someone already forced them to do something against their will.  The trauma of being forced to carry something they didn’t want to term, would be detrimental to their mental and emotional health.

Losing your freedom over yourself is one of the worst things ever.

Me personally, I don’t think I would be comfortable allowing the innocent child in me to be murdered. But to each their own. I’m just tired of seeing people accept the gruesome truth as normal. Aborted babies are mutilated and disgusting, just as mutilated and disgusting as the people who perform these atrocities.

The doctors who perform these surgeries know they’re killing.  However, killing is not equal to murder.  We kill animals for food, we kill other people in self-defense of country or of individuals, we kill bacteria and viruses.

The doctors understand that their patients - the pregnant people - wants or needs the abortion for their own reasons.  The doctors understand that freedom of choice and that bodily autonomy are extremely important.  They’re compassionate and lovely and beautiful people.  Just as the people who get abortions are strong, responsible, beautiful people.

So, no, the only disgusting action is trying to force people to carry pregnancies - which are physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially straining - against their will.

Sympathizing with a woman who dies while killing her own child is like sympathizing with a man who cuts himself while stabbing his wife to death.” - Cultureshift

I’ve never encountered someone this full of hate in my entire existence. It is as pitiable as it is scary.

Important Facts

culture-of-choice:

I know people often don’t like doing their own research, so here are some facts from the Guttmacher Institute that I think people should be aware of. 

1. There are approximately 1800 clinics that provide abortions in the United States of America. Pro-life activists boast that they have closed 93 abortion clinics. While this is devastating for many of the people in the communities afflicted by the pro-life terrorism, and should not be taken lightly, we should try to remember that our 1800 clinics to their 93 “victories” is monumental. 

2. While it is logistically difficult for some women to reach an abortion provider, it is not difficult for most. Approximately 7 out of 10 women traveled less than fifty miles to have their abortion performed. 2 out of 10 traveled between 50 and 100 miles, and 1 out of 10 traveled more than 100 miles. Of course, in certain parts of America (Mississippi or Texas, for example), women will have a harder time and consequently the financial burden will increase, as many may have to stay overnight in a hotel. Still, it is important to know that most women still have relatively easy access to the care they need. 

3. United States abortion clinics are not primarily located in predominantly black communities, despite what most pro-lifers like to say. Abortion clinics do not target black pregnant people. LESS than 1 out of 10 abortion clinics are located in predominantly black communities. 

For clarification, this post was not to encourage pro-choice activists to cease their fight or feel like their activism is not needed. I made this post to combat the ever increasing numbers of pro-life posts that like to paint a picture of an impending pro-life victory. It is important to know that the pro-choice community is still in the lead, and likely to remain so.
