“Jesus was a radical, non-violent revolutionary who hung around with lepers, hookers and crooks; wasn’t American and never spoke English; was anti-wealth, anti-death penalty, anti-public prayer (M 6:5), but was never anti-gay; never mentioned abortion or birth control; never called the poor ‘lazy’; never justified torture; never fought for tax cuts for the wealthiest Nazarenes; never asked a leper for a co-pay; and was a long-haired, brown-skinned, homeless, community-organizing, anti-slut-shaming, Middle Eastern Jew.”—JOHN FUGELSANG (via lookslikeicavedfml)
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
Women use birth control for other purposes than preventing pregnancy. Married women use birth control. Women that could potentially die from pregnancy take birth control. Telling women not to have sex as if it is some magical solution is dangerous, misinformed and misogynistic. Women take birth control for a variety of reasons and not one of them is any of your damn business. Sit down and shut up.
