If pregnancy is such a blessing and a gift from God, then why is it my fault? I mean, why would God give someone who didn't want to be pregnant that gift? God is such an asshole, doesn't he know that you can't give someone for example a puppy for Christmas because it's not really a gift, it's a responsibility?

My newest graphic contribution to the prochoice scene. For those times when “prolife” people need to pat themselves on the back for not partaking in arson or murder rather than thinking about why they’re aligned with a group that has committed actual violent crimes to make their point about why abortion is bad because it’s a violent crime.

Anyone else get a stupid laugh out of cultureshift constantly specifying human abortion? Hey don't let that woman abort even though she knows it's what's best for her, that's wrong. Oh wait you're talking about a female cat? Not a human? Oh then don't even worry about it, shit's cool man.

I think he made it pretty clear he didn’t give a shit about animals when he posted the picture of the kitten in a blender.

He is also one of the many ignorant pro-lifers who posts things like, “So you can’t destroy an eagle’s egg but you can abort a fetus?”

Because, you know, we shouldn’t care about endangered species, right? Who cares if tigers go extinct in our lifetime, right? Why bother?

It’s not like humans aren’t alive, thriving, and destroying the planet like a swarm of flies.

Guess who else was a fetus once.

The pregnant person.

But last time I checked you never gave a damn about them.

Except pro-lifers generally care a great deal about all human life including both mother and child.  However, the basis of the pro-life movement is to save the one who’s life is in danger.

And the best way to do that is yell at pregnant people not give them financial or mental support to carry and raise a child!!!!1

If consent to an action is consent to the consequences, then allowing a person into your house, and having that person decide to murder you suddenly a consensual act. Consenting to surgery and having the doctor just take a kidney is consensual because hey, you knew that was a possibility. No suing the doc. Going for a walk and being run over by a semi is consensual, because hey, if you stayed in your house it wouldn't happen. So no help for you! You knew it could happen. Deal with it.

On July 5, 2012 Heather Surovik was only days away from giving birth to her son Brady, when tragedy struck. A drunk driver, on his fifth DUI, struck Heather’s car, killing baby Brady and injuring the rest of the family. Prosecutors were not able to charge the drunk driver with the death of baby Brady because under Colorado law a preborn child is not considered a person. The media quickly dehumanized Brady by referring to him as a “fetus.” Planned Parenthood tells Heather that she didn’t lose her son, she lost a “pregnancy.” Now Heather is fighting to pass Amendment 67, to protect mothers and their babies. We stand with Heather. Will you? Start by watching this short documentary about Heather, her family, and her son Brady: http://ift.tt/1npXaRf http://ift.tt/1lvCGT3

Planned Parenthood didn’t tell her anything? Why would they make a statement to something that doesn’t concern them? Why do you lie so much?
Oh yeah
Because you have no truth to stand on :3-Ash

Shh.. You’ll make some people go google to verify if this exists anywhere but on blatantly biased prolife sites and start to question if they’re believing in total horseshit. Personhood USA doesn’t want that! Nevermind that they lie, steal people’s intellectual property, are transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, and rape apologists. ;)

Overwhelming medical evidence indicates that abortion is never necessary to save the life of a mother: http://ift.tt/GPX9EB http://ift.tt/1br9VjZ

Really?  Then please tell me how I was told in Nov 2008, that my ectopic pregnancy was life threatening by the OB-GYN, and if I didn’t have it surgically terminated that I was going to die.  Please tell me how safe it is for a fertilized egg outside of my womb to continue growing to full term without rupturing and causing my body going into shock and heavy internal bleeding.  Please tell me how factual this statement is.  Because I’m still alive and I’ve known other mothers who had ectopic pregnancies died.
National Library Of Medicine: 

Ectopic pregnancy is life-threatening. The pregnancy cannot continue to birth (term). The developing cells must be removed to save the mother’s life.
You will need emergency medical help if the area of the ectopic pregnancy breaks open (ruptures). Rupture can lead to bleeding and shock, an emergency condition. Treatment for shock may include:
Blood transfusion
Fluids given through a vein
Keeping warm
Oxygen
Raising the legs
If there is a rupture, surgery is done to stop blood loss and remove the pregnancy. In some cases, the doctor may have to remove the fallopian tube.
If the ectopic pregnancy has not ruptured, treatment may include:
Surgery
Medicine that ends the pregnancy, along with close monitoring by your doctor

Yeah, really? Tell that to my mother who had to have a D&C done late in pregnancy after the fetus died in utero to prevent her from going septic. Tell that to Savita Halappanavar who died because she was denied an abortion. She wasn’t the first pregnant person to die due to complications of pregnancy that could have been prevented with an abortion and because of people like you, OP, she won’t be the last. Your beliefs are killing people. Fuck you and all anti-choicers.

Everything you “fact check” you only come up with liberal sources, and anything to the contrary somehow isn’t valid to the argument. But I don’t expect much out of liberals, y’all are sheep after all

Yes, because sciencemag.org, nature.com, and Discover Magazine are TOTEZ liberal propaganda. No science, only LIES! LifeNews is the ONLY site to be trusted when it comes to this stuff!

I’m still not convinced that Lifenews and similar sites weren’t cooked up as an invention by a bunch of people who wanted to see just how ridiculous a story they could write and still get believed by truly gullible people. 

If that ever comes out that that’s the way it goes.. I will, personally, have myself a dance party. 

Apparently, the truth has a liberal bias. Or is it because people who are more intelligent are typically liberal?

"More intelligent"? Sure, give me one intelligent liberal that is doing more good than harm

Gotta love how you completely ignored the provided unbiased sources and just pounced on the liberals part. You’ve shown yourself to be a reality denier a few times already, though, so I’m not really surprised.

"My head’s too far up my own ass to be able to actually do my own research and stop parroting other people’s gross misinformation and bias’"

Actually, liberals tend to be more intelligent than conservatives. And y’all are scared of everything so it’s easier to sway you with fear tactics.  

Liberals just have higher IQs.. we’re open to more information is whati t is. 

A
nd I think it goes without saying that every time a law changes positively for the good of humanity, a liberal’s been behind it.. since we know how much you conservatives hate change. 

Then explain one thing if that’s your stance. Why am I, with a 170 IQ, not a liberal?

Oh.. and 170 by which test? Stanford-Binet, or Cattell? 

this is fucking gold. “I have a 170 IQ” lmfao yeah okay.

I will not reveal any information that could lead to someone finding me because you’ve threatened my LIFE!!!

Let’s see. Here’s an article about the smartest people on earth. :D 

Only two are in America.. and they’re both in their 50s. And I’ve found 3 people with IQs of 170 in articles.. and they’re 12, 14, and a 16 year olds. 

Funny. I can’t find a single thing about a 20something year old 170 IQ genius living in Georgia or either of the Carolinas. 

As you see, if your claims were valid, there’d be an article that could be found about you, name or not. All you’d have to do is google “People with IQs over 160” and you’d get an outpouring of results and one of them would have a 20something year old living in the locations listed for you or your girlfriend. 

It’s harder to pass off a fake claim like yours than it is to debunk it. Curses Google.. amirite? 

;) Nice try though. 


When it comes down to IQ anyway, it doesn’t really matter if you have a high IQ or not. Their culturally biased as well as class biased, so they really aren’t all that suitable to prove intelligence. 

Seriously. Though I’m still more annoyed at the lying.
