“God, send us someone to cure AIDS, cancer, etc., etc.”
“I did, but you gave them a substandard education because they lived in an area with poor funding due to low property taxes.  
I did, but you let them die because they couldn’t afford healthcare.  
I did, but due to racism you stomped out their potential and didn’t give them the same opportunities.  
I did, but you make a college education too unaffordable while giving the big bankers passes.
I did, but you saw a homeless youth before you saw a kid with potential.  
I did, but you kicked the downtrodden while they were already shoulder deep in sinking sand.”

I did, but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term—making her a single mother with limited income who had to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.

See, here’s my problem with this. (And I may have said this before, but fuck it)
God is supposed to be omniscient, right? All knowing, all seeing? Able to see all possibilities and follow all possibility threads to their likely conclusion? 
So, given that, it follows that God would know what parent would carry their pregnancy to term and which would not. So He would know to whom to send this wunderkind. 
Bottom line: if God wanted someone who could cure these ills to exist, they would exist. 
Which leads one to wonder… why doesn’t this person exist?
Either He wants them to exist, but can’t; or can make them exist, but won’t.
After all, cancer, AIDS, et al, exist, and if God didn’t want them to exist, He certainly could have chosen not to have them exist, but they do.
Something to think about.

Greg Abbott: Abortion Clinic Closures Are Manageable 'Inconvenience' For Women

generalbriefing:

I’m in West Texas. Before last week, the closest abortion clinic was 45 minutes away. Now, it’s 16 hours. That’s two hotel stays, one way plus the waiting period.

Ahahaha. Here you go:


See how there’s no overlap? 

^ YES. And in case that didn’t get through to OP, I added my own edits:



And can we also add that the size (and therefore age) of the fetus in the picture is WAY bigger than the vast majority of abortions. In fact, that one looks ready to be born. Stop with the emotional manipulation.

'I Think She Was A She' Proudly Proclaims There's No Shame In Having An Abortion

In the slam poem “I Think She Was A She,” spoken word poet and performance artist Leyla Josephine recounts the abortion she had as a teenager and the cultural shame she’s been constantly confronted with ever since.

Be brought to tears when you watch Leyla recite the full moving poem here. 

Powerful and beautiful.

What people seem to be forgetting is that when you are fighting for a rapist’s right to have their victim continue their pregnancy, that includes child victims. No ifs, ands, or buts. You cannot choose whom who think it’s okay to force through a pregnancy.

Again: if you think that rapists have a right to see their offspring be born, that includes child victims. You may be rooting for a nine year old girl to give birth to a child simply because you think the rapist has a right to see that child.

Your obsession with fetus is stooping low.

More devastating news out of Texas last night. The Fifth Circuit Court has ruled to close all but 7 of the state’s abortion clinics – leaving the 5.4 million women of reproductive age that live in the state with very few options.

Today I was in one of the abortion clinics in Texas that were shut down as of yesterday at 4:00 pm. I saw the doctor come into the room and tearfully explain to the women there for the first time that she could not legally help them anymore. I saw those girls start to cry and helplessly start calling whoever they could to try and get a medical abortion appointment with the only 6-8 doctors left in all Texas who can legally help them. The doctor had to call a 12 year olds mom who was trying to help her daughter get an abortion because she was raped by a 50 year old monster, and tell her that she could no longer perform the procedure. Almost all of those girls are now going to be forced to carry to term because our rights as women have been stripped from us and it’s disgusting! If you think any of that’s okay please reevaluate your thought process. If you aren’t a voter then I’m telling you now that you need to register today and vote for us Texas women, and women all across the United States. Please don’t let the religious fanatics do this to us. Don’t let them take away the rights to our own bodies, our voices need to be heard!

BOOST THIS SHIT!

This is killing a human life.

At 23 weeks chances are good that this fetus is being removed because it is:
a) Already deadb) Suffering abnormalities such as it developed no brain, or had a serious genetic condition that would kill it quickly. c) Was actively dying (not dead yet but would be within a few days, 100% guarunteed, 0 chance of saving it)d) Was actively killing the pregnant person.
Late term abortions, as shown here, make up only 1.5% of all abortions. The above four reasons are the only reasons such procedures are performed. Almost every abortion performed after 20 weeks is done on a wanted pregnancy. So you know what that means? You’re calling people who miscarried murderers. You just implied people who had a miscarriage or would have died murderers. How dare you call yourself pro life for that.
Now for the fun fact: They used to use a different procedure for these abortions in which they removed the fetus intact and allowed these people to grieve for the intact fetus, have pictures, etc. Pro lifers decided people losing a wanted pregnancy should not be allowed to grieve an intact fetus and we were left with this.
Congrats. Your movement is the reason they use this one now when people lose a wanted pregnancy late into the pregnancy. Your movement is intentionally making it harder for people to recover from the lose of a much wanted pregnancy. It’s your movement who left grieving people with this instead of allowing them something easier to deal with, something that would let them hold their deceased fetus.
Congrats. If you think you were ‘saving’ something think again. You’re hurting born people. You’re hurting people who lose a wanted pregnancy by shaming this abortion procedure. And you’re movement is the reason this is procedure doctors are forced to use now. You’re probably an awful and mean person to tell people losing a wanted pregnancy that they’re killers.
