He keeps her cool.

I have been call pretty by a few people in my life but what really makes me smile is no matter how much we argue out of the blue my little brother (he’s 11) will turn round to me and say “you look really nice today” I love him more then anyone else on the planet no matter how shit we are to each other sometimes
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.

But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too.
First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation.
And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument.
Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all.
If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other.
When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting.
When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.”
And that is gross.
This has been added to since I last saw it, so reblogging again.
Busted wide open.
It deeply saddens me that there are intelligent people, good people, members of my own family, who can not seem to grasp the concept that it is about choice. The whole ‘debate’ should not be a debate. Pregnancy is an arduous and difficult period whether you have planned it or not and it is a joy to those who want children to any degree, but to women who decide that they do not then it is their CHOICE. A collection is cells is not a life, no more an independent life than a tumor and no one would dare begrudge anyone’s choice to remove that. Just because something has potential to be does not been that it is, an egg is not a chicken. The circumstances of one’s birth are entirely irrelevant whether your parents were married or not, a one night stand or rape, it does not matter if you’re part of a huge family or a single-parent family your life is always important and always yours. It is agreed that forcing someone to do anything against their will (Sex, marriage, etc) is wrong and in most countries illegal why is forcing someone to carry and give birth to a baby or making a woman feel pressured towards or against an abortion not seen as wrong?
^^^i agree with this chick and couldnt have put it better myself why would you want someone who dosent want a child to have one, this will only ever lead to the child being neglected or being put in an Orphanage where it can feel even more unloved so Many people have arguments about this with out thinking or caring about what would happen to that child after it was born
