I created this image based on a tweet I wrote this morning after a long twitter rant. I got myself all riled up over a prochoice advocate saying, “No woman wants an abortion.”
It’s simply NOT TRUE that no person wants an abortion. As Scott Madin wrote to me, if anything it’s that “no one wants to need an abortion.” Beth Hicks added, “Just like no one wants to need heart surgery, but it’s a necessary medical procedure.”
Antichoicers are uncomfortable with fact that some people get abortions and are relieved and happy the procedure exists? Don’t care.
Antichoicers are uncomfortable acknowledging that more people than just cis women need access to reproductive health care? Don’t care.
Antichoicers don’t want to acknowledge prevalence of abortion or fact that they most likely DO know someone who’s had one? Don’t care.
Antichoicers want to make this about zygotes and fetuses and not living, breathing people? Don’t care.
I’m not here to bow down to what makes antichoicers comfortable. I’m not going to ask for less bc we *may* then get it. Nope.
Prochoicers need to drop qualifiers on abortion except for “safe”, “legal”, “accessible”, “subsidized” and “affordable”.
Safe, legal, accessible, affordable, subsidized abortion on demand for whomever needs or wants it for whatever reason.
Safe, legal, accessible, affordable, subsidized HEALTH CARE on demand for whomever needs or wants it for whatever reason.
About 5 months ago, I wrote about my hatred of qualifiers (at that time responding to the groan-inducing phrase, “I wouldn’t get an abortion but…”). As I said then:
You’re either for choice or you’re not.
I’m for choice. Full stop.
