I am pro-choice because I believe in democracy – Me, Anonymous Blog
The opinions expressed in these submissions are from anonymous and unverified sources and do not necessarily represent those of the Portland Mercury.
They’re not pro-life, they’re anti-choice. Their position is not to know when life begins or to save lives of any type. Their position is all about controlling your sexual freedom and choices.
This is not a new type of control. Authoritarians throughout history have attempted to tightly control the sex lives of those they consider subjects.
They have a lot of tell. If their goal was zero abortions, why are they also against contraception? If their goal was zero abortion, why are they against even basic sex education?
Their goal is not zero abortions, they know that the privileged will always be able to access an abortion as they see fit. It is about amplifying class divisions and attempting to reverse progress in women’s liberation.
Look at them. They are not pro-life. For God’s sake, they’re all practically death worshippers.
Their facade is crumbling. They become even more desperate. Even some of their own supporters are beginning to see through their hypocrisy.
Continue to engage in civil discussions. Keep saving them. Keep pushing!
And most importantly, give them a way out of the crazy vortex they’ve been sucked into. Give them a path to redemption. Show them how we believe in the goodness of people and that’s why we believe in the power of democracy.
