Let’s Make Abortion Fun & Trendy!

The following article is by Louise Mellon on the ACLU. My comments are in parenthesis.

The new romantic comedy “Obvious Child” has managed to do something pretty extraordinary — it’s made abortion sympathetic, and funny. (Oh, really?)

In it, main character Donna has an abortion after a drunken one-night stand. But unlike most other characters who grapple with this question, Donna doesn’t torture herself. She makes the decision without angst, guilt, or extenuating circumstances. And like millions of American women, Donna follows through, then moves on with her life. (How quaint)

A movie about an experience this common – nearly one in three American women will have an abortion in their lifetime — shouldn’t feel so revolutionary. But it does. (One in three? Really???)

Our culture still stigmatizes abortions and the women who have them. When President Obama issued a statement of support on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, he didn’t use the word abortion once. Think about that — in a statement supporting the decision that recognizes the constitutional protection to abortion, abortion wasn’t mentioned. (This is a rare example of the left admitting what deceitful liars they are.)

Even within the reproductive rights movement, we have a million ways to signal abortion without saying it. We talk about “personal, private decision making,” “women’s health” or “reproductive health care.” (More admitted lies.)

Even I, who have devoted my life to defending reproductive rights, have friends who want an abortion but won’t admit it to me. Instead they’ll call and tell me their “friend” needs help. That speaks to a frightening level of shame. (Gee, I wonder why? Could it be because murder is a shameful act?)

Here’s the truth: We all know – and probably love – a woman who’s had an abortion. Indeed, we likely know several women, and love them. We just don’t know it.

Here’s another truth: Even if we don’t agree about abortion, we can agree that we shouldn’t judge a woman unless we’ve walked in her shoes. Life, after all, is messy. And decisions aren’t always black and white. (Sure, they are. That’s what the Ten Commandments are all about. Thou shall not commit murder.)

Abortion stigma causes real harm. Even the simple silence around abortion hurts women. It makes women afraid to talk about their experiences, even with trusted friends and loved ones. It encourages politicians to chip away at women’s ability to make this decision for themselves – and then say they’re doing it for our own good. Stigma, and the silence it nurtures, enables a culture that tells doctors and nurses they can refuse to treat a woman who seeks an abortion because she is untouchable — declining even to take her blood pressure or provide her with pain medication, lest they be tainted by association. (So abortion stigma causes harm, but the physical murder of babies doesn’t? Someone get this woman to a shrink. Now!)

That’s why the “Obvious Child” is so welcome. It deftly reflects the experience of millions of women across the country – that we sometimes get pregnant when we didn’t want to and decide to have an abortion because it’s the right decision for our lives. (Risking eternal damnation a right decision? Hmmn… I don’t think so.)

  1. Well isn’t that special? Sickos.

  2. Thank you Mike for this important post. The ACLU’s attempted rationalization of the killing of innocent children, infants, via abortion, fails most miserably in every way. In fact, the whole article is stupid. Your comments are right on point and reflect the Truth.

  3. How long before a game show comes along where the winner gets a free abortion and seven days/six nights in Aruba?

    These people are sick beyond words.


  4. Just more proof that liberals are terminally ill, spiritually. God help their dark hell bound souls.

  5. “abortion stigma” isn’t what causes the harm, it’s the people hving wanton amoral fornication every which way that does the harm. The best solution to abortion is to teach people self control, not provide a service that reaps profits from dangerous medical procedures, the only ones that win in that case scenario are the sickos encouraging the fornication in the first place (Read: The cause of the problem profits from causing the problem and “providing the solution”) such is the psychosis of the puppets of evil.

  6. “But KNOW this, that in the last days perilous times will come . . . Evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:1, 13)

    “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

  7. “Sympathetic, and funny?!” They obviously have never watched “The Silent Scream” (it’s available on youtube). They are in denial, or intentionally misleading people. Likely the latter.

  8. Oh fuck people! Embryos are just groups of cells. They’re not people yet. There are a lot of dumb young women out there with no sense of responsibility. I empathize with those dumb sexy girls. Young people are supposed to fuck around and learn about sex. Mistakes happen…Fuck your religion if it says otherwise. Maybe the kid will be reincarnated somewhere else. You sheltered, repressed, retards need to get out into the world and learn about new shit. Fuck your fears, don’t be a pussy. Just jump in head first, then you will have more knowledge to draw upon when making decisions. How the fuck did I even get to the retarded side of the internet? Oh yeah, I was trying to find out what personality disorder Rush Limbaugh has….here’s some irony for you fucks. If America had a guaranteed minimum income for all, there wouldn’t be as many abortions. Why? Because abortions are often done because of lack of money.
    I’m not a liberal.
    Fuck you if you want to correct my grammar, punctuation.
    Later losers

    • @Your Mom:

      Gosh, I sure hope not everyone in Bloomington, Indiana, where you live is as IQ- and vocabulary-challenged as you, unable to put two sentences together without the F-word. Your mom must be so proud of you.

    • Wow, with those quality words and rebuttals you sound like a tween who was sleeping during biology, English, and debate classes. Here’s what you missed: “The heart is one of the earliest developing organs in a new baby…the heart begins to beat at approximately 22 days after conception, often before the mother even realizes she is pregnant.”

      “Young people are supposed to fuck around and learn about sex.” I’m sure that’s what every father wants their young daughter to experience…

      “Fuck your religion if it says otherwise.” Well, glad to know you respect others’ beliefs…

      “Because abortions are often done because of lack of money.” Source?

      Well, that’s not entirely true. It’s because: having a child would interfere with a woman’s education, work or ability to care for dependents (74%); that she could not afford a baby now (73%); and that she did not want to be a single mother or was having relationship problems (48%). The themes of responsibility to others and resource limitations, such as financial constraints and lack of partner support,recurred throughout the study. Granted, having a baby at a young age can impact your education and earning capacity. Yet lots of women are able to do it.

    • LOL – I guess the art of paragraphs is totally lost on the young of today.

      I’m not a liberal.

      Exactly, as you aren’t even that intelligent.

      Fuck you…

      Not even if I were stuck on an island with you with no hope of rescue and you looked like Anna Kournikova.


    • You may not be a liberal but you certainly sound like one angry militant sodomite. That’s where the majority of vile/disrespectful posts to this site usually stem from!

  9. Your Mom, you wouldn’t last two seconds in a debate with Rush Limbaugh. He’d chew you up and spit you out so fast it would make your head spin. Do the words “useful idiot” mean anything to you?

  10. You misuse the word liberal. The right of the Republican party IS liberal in the classical sense of the word: minimal government, individualism, less state control. This website is thoroughly liberal. The quality of debate , with its insults, is appalling. The NWO order, if it exists is anti liberal, its oppenents are liberal!

    • @Robert in Salisbury, UK:

      You are insufferably condescending who thinks you know better than others. Actually, we do know what the word “liberal” means. But in American politics today, the term has been appropriated by the Left and the Democrats, who are illiberal when it comes to politics and economics, but hyper-liberal to the point of license when it comes to culture, ethics and morality. That’s why I refer to them as the Left instead of as “liberals.” Nevertheless, “liberal” is the common-usage term for Democrats.

      Nor is the Republican Party “liberal” in the classical Founding Fathers sense because the GOP is also for big government and big corporate economy that bears little resemblance to laissez-faire free market. So spare us your supercilious lecture.

    • “The quality of debate , with its insults, is appalling.”

      Your quality of debate is rather impaired as you post random comments that do not relate to the specific posts, yet you try to educate us on the English language. Guess they must teach a different form of debate over in the UK…

    • Trolls have been considered fair game since the earliest Usenet days.

      I should know, as I have about 10,000 troll pelts hanging on my trophy wall. 😀
