"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.
They should really change that dead bodies thing tho tbh.

christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
one time in high school this kid started choking on a roll and instead of helping him i said “how breadful” and that about sums up how useful i am in emergencies
This is exactly the sort of person I would want to have with me in an emergency.
(Spoiler Alert) What I think happens next on AMC’s The Walking Dead.
So, the governor attacked the prison… Again. But now he actually got what he wanted (destroy it). Now everyone got separated, seven “groups” that as you can see I put above, Rick and Carl will find a house, Rick is very sick so Carl will get the responsability to take care of his dad.. A lot of things will happen to them, like probably Abraham and his companions will show up, the hunters, etc. Tyresse went away with the children, and there’s a possibility that he’s with Judith, a lot of people saw a scene that he’s running holding something. Sasha and Maggie will be taking care of Bob (got shot). Glenn with the bus: There’s a rumour he’ll be the leader of the group, but there’s another rumour that he’s going to die (please don’t). Michonne, all by herself, but she’s smart enough, isn’t she? - And there’s Lilly, the woman who finally killed the governor, did she save Judith? She’s a nurse who may replace Hershel. Anytime, they will meet again at Greene’s Farm. Will everyone be still alive?
(“Lilly didn’t shoot the governor, she missed the sight” - Well, Michonne hit him with a sword, Rick shot him, punched him and there were more than three walkers walking to him. He has to be dead.)
oh apparently tumblr wont let me make a blank post.

Idk if Alex Day is annoying me or not. I hate it when I don’t know if someone’s annoying me or not.
I hate it when you ring someone and you can tell from their voice they’re in a crap mood but you don’t want to ask why in case it’s your fault or in case it makes it worse and it’s like oh I wish I hadn’t called now I could have called later to tell you the good thing I wanted to talk about but now it’s ruined.
