"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.
Just keep on thinking that abortion is okay. Just because you want to fuck without consequences.
And here’s the truth of it: You aren’t concerned with protecting a life.
You are only interested in punishing people for having consensual sex that isn’t driven by a need to procreate. The idea that people could just want to have consensual sex with each other and NOT become parents is something that you take PERSONAL OFFENSE to.
This is a sentiment DRIVEN by a desire to control and restrict people’s ability to have consensual sexual relationships without a specific intention to procreate, and that is gross, invasive, and weird.
I really really wish the Lush store was closer to me (the closest one is about 40 minutes) because I would love to work there.
This is one of the most inspirational posts I have ever seen on Tumblr.
Please stop with everything Google+
It was a bad social network that failed, just accept that and leave Youtube the way it was.
Can we get this like a million notes and then forward it to Google?
Still learning how to cat. It’s a slow process.
So, yesterday me and mom decided to go and get all of our christmas shopping done and out of the way, and the majority of that shopping was Lush products for family and close friends
and now as I sit here smelling the amazingly gorgeously scent bath bombs I just want to live in Lush for the rest of my life
I wish I had bought more for myself
