Mebbe

Of all the abominations against women, forcing them to bear a child against their will is one of the most life-changing cruelties.

It’s certainly life changing. Possibly even life saving or life creating dependent upon your view of the vivacity of the foetus. But cruel? That’s to be argued, isn’t it?

In the UK, one in three women will have an abortion in their lifetime – neither shame nor tragedy, just a common medical procedure.

It’s a tragedy for at least one of the life forms involved Polly.

  1. JuliaM – it’s Schrodinger’s foetus. Changes between “clump of cells” and “baby” depending on the needs of the narrative.

    Also, I wonder if the Guardian would publish an article declaring “Of all the abominations against men, forcing them to become a father against their will is one of the most life-changing cruelties.”

  2. It’s a tragedy for at least one of the life forms involved Polly.

    Yarp. Both, ultimately. Everybody pays for what they do, in some way.

    Imagine approaching the autumn years of your life, when people start to wonder what they’ve done with their lives, and who will miss them when they’re gone. And maybe, by chance, seeing a little girl fling her tiny arms around her mother’s neck – “I love you, Mummy!”

    And realising that could’ve been your daughter, but you killed your child. You chose death.

  3. “neither shame nor tragedy, just a common medical procedure.”

    Whatever happened to safe, legal, and *rare*?

  4. “forcing them to bear a child against their will”

    That sounds like rape. Or are we talking about some other lack of agency that led to this peculiar and entirely unforeseen outcome?

  5. I’m not anti-abortion but I can’t understand some people’s positive enthusiasm for abortion. I suppose they are just wicked.

  6. Confirmation–as if any more were needed–that Pol is indeed a wicked , selfish old cunt. A textbook leftist.

  7. I’m not sure where I stand on whether women should or should not be able to have abortion on demand. Or more properly, I don’t care – any more than I care about vibrant teenagers offing each other or one gang of God botherers blowing up botherers of slightly different gods. If it’s happening outside my sphere of experience I just shrug.

    But people should be honest. On most occasions the woman is killing a viable human being. That’s what they should call it. If she’s ok with that, it’s up to her.

    I wonder how many if the 8.5 million and counting abortions in the UK since it was legalised fall into that category. The killing of a viable human being.

  8. Of all the humans who have ever lived, western women couldn’t have a nicer life.

    “The abominations” feminists all expect someone else to solve for them because they to busy being equal.

    Because writing fact free Grauniad articles is not solving anything.

  9. “In the UK, one in three women will have an abortion in their lifetime – neither shame nor tragedy, just a common medical procedure.”

    Ha! Look, I’m not anti-abortion, kind of pro actually, but I still consider it both a shame and a tragedy.

    Its a personal shame to have one – because you weren’t responsible enough to prevent a pregnancy at a time when you couldn’t afford a pregnancy. Its a tragedy because its another life lost to a couple of people’s carelessness and negligence.

    It should be a last resort, used *rarely* by otherwise responsible people when birth control fails. Not as, apparently is happening, it being the primary form of birth control for so many women.

    I actually find myself agreeing with American Conservatives who put ‘onerous’ conditions on getting an abortion – something needs to be done to change this back to a last resort instead of a first.
