I want to punch them.
I’m not against abortion. I am pro-choice (I’ve said before that I’m pro-life, but I realize now, that I’m only pro-life for myself, not anyone else.)
I would never have one myself, but I’m not against anyone else having one within reason.
I’ve heard a few pro-choice people say that women that don’t use birth control and have multiple abortions as a result don’t exist, I just get so angry.
I know of a couple women that have made the conscious decision to have sex without any form of birth control other than the “pull and pray” method (which we all know is a crock of shit) and then have had abortions, and are ANGRY that they got pregnant.
One of them I know, for fact has had seven abortions. All because she chose not to use birth control at all. She uses the excuse that she was wasted, and was actually angry that pulling out didn’t work.
I understand that every woman has a right to their own body. And if she had gotten pregnant accidentally while using birth control, I wouldn’t be pissed. But the fact of the matter is that SEVEN times, she consciously chose not to use oral contraceptive, condoms, spermicide, or any other form of birth control, got pregnant, became angry and was so surprised that she got pregnant, and had an abortion as a result.
It was a result of pure irresponsibility on her part that got her pregnant. Not an accident. Not failed birth control.
And when people tell me that people like her don’t exist, I just get so angry. Because I know for a fact that they do.
Sorry. This was a long rant, and really not important, and it makes me sound like an asshole. But, fuck me sideways. Having sex without birth control and expecting to not get pregnant is idiotic.
