We spend a lot of our time debunking anti-choice misinformation, and rightfully so–there is a lot to cover! What we often spare our readers from is the sometimes graphic, always disrespectful comments left by anti-choice people on blog posts. My personal philosophy is to delete these, since this blog is not the forum for a debate between accurate, scientific facts and straight-up hateful nonsense.
But I’m breaking that policy today. For one day, instead of having us explain to you how rude antis are, I will let them do it themselves. Below are highlights from a few anti-choice comments we’ve received in the last few weeks.
In response to Why YOU Should Be An Abortion Provider, from someone named Suzie Oliver:
“My mission today is not to get you to change your major…” So I guess abortion providers’ major would be Murder 101?
“However, maybe you have it in your heart to become an abortion provider.” Have it in your HEART?! Are you FUCKING kidding me?! A person has NO HEART if they murder a baby. Fucking disgusting and vile. It’s one thing to have stupid thoughts but to speak them and then POST ON THE INTERNET for the world to see?! I’m at a loss, I really want to meet this ‘provider’. Fucking idiot.
In response to the same post by someone named Marc:
Excuse the caps please. NO DOCTOR SHOULD BE PERFORMING ABORTIONS PERIOD! THE PURPOSE OF THE MEDICAL PROFESSION IS TO HEAL PEOPLE, NOT TO KILL. EVERYONE PRO ABORTION OR PRO LIFE MUST AGREE ON ONE THING. WHETHER YOU CALL IT A CLUMP OF CELLS OR A BABY IT IS STILL SOMETHING LIVING AND EVOLVING TO AN EVENTUAL BIRTH OF A HUMAN BEING. AN ABORTION ABORTS OR EXTERMINATES THIS LIFE. THIS IS CONTRARY TO WHY THE MEDICAL PROFESSION EXISTS IN THE FIRST PLACE………..
In response to this post from someone named Leslie:
Interesting review of Life Zone. I have not seen it. I have however had an abortion. And I liken it to something similar to what you said. Abortion is like being raped by satan. It is a horrible, painful, terrorizing experience. If you have never had an abortion yourself, I wonder how you can promote it so much? I hope one day your eyes will be opened to the truth about abortion. I was once like you in my feminist pro-choice stance. Then I had an abortion.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks. Maybe I will start publishing these comments so you all can see the truth about the people we are dealing with–that they use repulsive scare tactics, completely reject medicine and logic, and have absolutely no respect for pregnant women.
