"Abortion is needed because rape"
“Abortion is not about responsibility”
Well fuck 42% of abortions are because of lack of money and they don’t want the responsibility. 16% say they don’t want to change their lives,are you kidding me? No really. Look at the facts,the majority abort because they don’t want to grow up and take responsibility it’s there black and white. Only 3% are for health reasons only 1% are for rape so what’s your excuse for murder now?
I dunno, I think NOT HAVING THE MONEY FOR A CHILD OR PREGNANCY is a pretty damned good reason for not having a kid. In fact, I think that not having a child when one cannot afford one is one of the most responsible things you can do.
Similarly, when one does not want to change their life to suit a pregnancy or child, how can you say “no, you have to be pregnant anyways”. Do you really, truly, think that will end well for anyone?
Aborting because you do not want kids/to be pregnant or do not have the money for the aforementioned IS taking responsibility.
Reblogging for excellent commentary by choosechoice, as always.
Having the option for abortion is about taking responsibility for your own life, every womyn deserves the opportunity to choose for theirself. It’s about whether or not having a child is something they planned, or are ready for mentally, emotionally, physically, and economically. Would you prefer a child be raised by a mother, father, couple, parent(s), or family unit who cannot afford to give that child the best life they could because they did not have the choice to abort (or for any sort of contraceptive option), or did not want to put the child in the system? Or would you prefer the child to be raised in the best environment possible, even if that means aborting the child until the time comes when the person[s] involved are ready to have/adopt a new one? (note: I dont mean to commodify child bearing here to make it sound like one can simply “acquire a child”).
In my class “Archaeology in the Media”… “Then what this civilization can be?”
My classmate is a student from China with a stunningly poor comprehension of English such that it makes me wonder how he got into my school…I understand his troubles with learning and writing in English, which is clearly not his native language, and I am always kind with him about any issues we encounter with his writing. He works somewhat diligently, considering we’ve had issues with him getting in his work to me on time for peer review for our group paper, and I hope his work improves over the course of his college career.
I had to review and comment on his essay, which analyzes Moche Culture as presented in archaeological publications, media, and popular media. I used the review feature on Microsoft Word in order to review his paper digitally, as I did not have a paper copy on-hand, which was very fun for me. My comments mainly focused on his severe grammar and tense issues, with other comments on maintaining logical flow and clarity in his argument and explanations. I emphasized the strength of certain elements of his analysis, which, coming from an art historical perspective, was a breath of fresh air; he expressed himself much more clearly and concisely when analyzing through an art historical perspective as opposed to an archaeological one, which is a phenomenon he should become more aware of as to translate it elsewhere and improve his writing [in English] overall.
In all, it was a really invigorating and yet slightly maddening experience reviewing [and in a way, grading] his paper. I am totally looking forward to becoming a professor of anthropology.
