Among the many reasons I have little to no respect for “pro-lifers” is their silence about woman.1.2 million women each year in the US are not forced through unwanted pregnancy and childbirth against their will, but instead get a safe, legal abortion. (No pro-life organisation in the US supports access to contraception, the most reliable means of preventing abortions: Planned Parenthood is the most effective anti-abortion charity in the US.)
70 000 women die each year worldwide because they cannot get access to safe legal abortion. Pro-lifers never care one whit about the women who suffer and die because they cannot get access to contraception, healthcare, or abortion.
I would have said all of this at Obsidian Wings, but I chose not to enable Feddie’s attempt to use a post about the 4000 US soldiers who had died in Iraq to score his cheap political point about forced pregnancy.
…and it was blocked as “spam”.
