Just Thinking About Abortion...

I actually wrote most of this as a comment to a recent "Pro-Choice" blog post by KAYLA

I thought I would share it here as well...

If Men Could Get Pregnant - Argument Done!

No doubt about it, if men were having the babies, abortion would not only be legal; It would be a "Religious Rite"!

The male-dominated religions of the world would create special prayers and rituals for the "Holy Sacrament of Abortion"! Priests, Rabbis, Ministers and Muslin Clerics would be performing abortions (for a fee of course) on a daily basis.

And, if women were to dare challenge a man's Sacred and God given right to an Abortion, - Well! isn't there something in the "Holy Book of Hear Say" (a/k/a The Bible) about Stoning Insolent Females? :)

Now please don't misunderstand. I'm not saying I'm in favor of abortion. No, not at all! In fact, the whole idea of it makes me rather uncomfortable; but who am I to say, what a woman can or can't do with her own body?

Or any of us for that matter. I'm not real fond of tattoos either ( Callif ) but it's not like I want them outlawed or something, in fact (I'm loath to admit this) sometimes, on occasion, they can actually look kind of sexy. http://callif.blogspot.com/2009/06/161803399.html

  1. Jeez Mate, You realize, you just compared a tattoo with an abortion!??

  2. lol
    You flatter me.

    And yes Joey, he does realize it hahah.
    I would say that's quite a good comparison, since both issues deal with the right to one's own body. Unfortunately abortion becomes much more difficult to discuss when you get into the "life" of the fetus.

    There's an interesting article about abortion written from a feminist perspective written by a philosopher named Sally Markowitz. I'll email it to you, since I don't think I can post a PDF on my blog.

  3. Callif, thanks for sending me the interesting article by Professor Markowitz.

    As I said in my e-mail reply, I've often thought, keeping the whole abortion debate within the realm of morality and religion was nothing more than a clever ploy by the "Religious Right". Hence the whole "Pro-Life" argument, and when does life really begin bull-crap. It's just a diversionary tactic meant to camouflage the real issue, which is of course, the Control and Oppression of Women.

    And, Yes Joey - Callif is right. I do realize it and it was a very deliberate comparison. :)

  4. I’m definitely for the right to have an abortion. And I don’t think it’s an easy decision for anyone. But it is a personal decision and should be left that way.
