I would say that given the fact that abortion can more or less allow a woman to mess up her life as often as she wants with no reproduction, it's more anti woman than pro life. It basically puts them into the ideology that "welp, I did exactly what I shouldn't do and got pregnant. Might as well get an abortion". Basically teaches them it's o.K to be a slut.
Pro life is basically saying that it's not right to hoe around. Aside from that, it also teaches them that their child is precious, that they should take care of it, and possibly help it to become something better than themselves. It's not a burden, it's a gift. If you don't want it, have the child and take it into foster care so that he/she can become something better and maybe do something with its life. It's more pro woman because that child that came from her is precious, not something that deserves to be killed/tossed out.
When you look at statistics it would seem quite obvious that it is pro-woman. But whether pro-life or pro-choice, you can't get around this fact. 47,000 women die from abortions each year on top of that the suicide rate for woman who have abortions is 7 times that of a woman who keeps the baby or give it up for adoption. The other reason not to support abortion it because according to Margaret Sanger was created to demolish the African american race, and other minorities.
What once was pro-choice has now become a pro-woman stance where pro-life is concerned. The majority still refers to it as pro-choice but times are changing and that doesn't appear to be what it is these days. People still try to stand behind the pro-choice statement but eventually we will not be able to refer to it as such.
WAKE UP SOCIETY! PRO-LIFE IS OVER!! PRO-ABORTION IS WHATS IMPORTANT!!! How can you backstab our ancestors like that? They risked their lives to give us freedom and this is what you do..You should be ashamed.. The meaning is right in front of your faces and you try to make abortion seem bad...Smh...We dont have to ruin our lives with a kid. We have the right to abort the fetus before it turns into a baby. We can continue our education and we dont have to give up our dreams! Why bring an unwanted kid into this world when clearly its a mistake to begin with. Theres no need to bring them into this. We created them and we will take them out. Stop thinking emotionally and think realistically and about the facts here. Pro-life thinks its a precious innocent baby..Well its not. Its a lump of cells and you will deal with the fact that abortion is AWESOME and only helps women! Pro-life dont know what theyre talking about...
How is restricting women's reproductive rights pro-woman? How is forcing unwanted pregnancy on women pro-women? How is forcing women deeper into poverty pro-woman? How is keeping women trapped in domestic abusive relationships pro-woman? How is restricting abortion in the case of rape pro-woman? How is preventing abortion in the case of dangerous pregnancy pro-woman? How is assuming women are incapable of making their own decisions pro-woman?
I think that pro-choice ideology is more "pro-woman". Since humanity cannot control conception completely, there has to be a way to provide a terminating mechanism to it. Any given woman is a human being and humans usually want to control major changes in their life (such as marriage, having kids, etc).
From a more moralistic point of view, abstinence is the ultimate solution.
While yes, some women are pro-life, some are also pro-choice, same goes for men. However, it's not a Pro-woman stance to take.
Controlling the bodies of others just because they have a uterus, and trying to police what they do with their body and what may or may not be inside of it is far from a Pro-woman stance. The pro-life stance reduces pregnant people (because Transgender Men can also get pregnant) to nothing more than a shell or an incubator. The fetus is what is certainly cared about, not the actual living breathing person that's carrying it.
Pro-life is certainly not a Pro-woman stance, or even a Pro-people stance, if that makes sense. Controlling the bodies of others and trying to make them use their body against their will for something YOU want isn't right and not a stance that supports women.
Taking away a woman's right to choose isn't a pro-woman stance, regardless of the issue. Being pro-choice doesn't mean you want to utilize the choice at every given opportunity, merely have it be available for those that need to utilize it. On a side note, wow to "everyone is pro-life unless they're sociopaths" below me.
There is no such thing as a "pro-woman" stance. People are people. Pro-life is a description of how some people (men and women) feel about the embryonic stage of life. Everyone is pro-life unless they're sociopaths. Women are the overseers of their own bodies, which has nothing to do with a "stance" of any kind.
Of course women are pro-life, so are men. Most humans are pro-life, aren't they? But to say a political position regarding a woman's right to determine her own destiny is actually more reflective of what is best for her is absurd. The pro-life movement says that a woman cannot decide whether to bear a child or not, and that doesn't seem to me to be a pro-woman stance unless you see women as essentially child bearers and nothing more. If society wants to think that pro-life is actually more user friendly to women, it should look into the reality of how that position plays out in the lives of women who have to live it.
Pro-life people are anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don’t like them. They don’t like women.They believe a woman’s primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state.
Pro-life… You don’t see many of these white anti-abortion women volunteering to have any black fetuses transplanted into their uterus’s, do you? No, you don’t see them adopting a whole lot of crack babies, do you? No, that might be something Christ would do. And, you won’t see a lot of these pro-life people dousing themselves in kerosene and lighting themselves on fire. You know, morally committed religious people in South Vietnam knew how to stage a demonstration, didn’t they?! They knew how to put on a protest. Light yourself on FIRE!! C’mon, you moral crusaders, let’s see a little smoke to match that fire in your belly.
These conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re pre-born, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re f*****.
Conservatives don’t give a s*** about you until you reach “military age”. Then they think you are just fine. Just what they’ve been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.
