10 Things I'd Say to the Anti-Choice Fanatics Trying to End Access to Abortion

10 Things I'd Say to the Anti-Choice Fanatics Trying to End Access to Abortion: "Here are ten realities pro-choicers should throw in the face of opponents of choice they have the misfortune to get into arguments with. The anti-choice movement would be nowhere without a heavy denial of reality based on the promotion of myths about sex, about birth control, about women’s bodies, but especially about abortion. While the majority of Americans are pro-choice, the constant drumbeat of stories makes the public wonder if there isn’t some truth to the stereotypes, causing even pro-choice people to support regulations such as waiting periods, parental notification laws, and ultrasound laws that only serve to make it harder for women in need to get abortions..."

"If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine."

Your link doesn't work.  I think if people want there to be less abortions, they have to make birthcontrol more accessible.  They have to allow sex education in schools.  They have to have programs for women who get pregnant, like the Catherine Ferguson Academy .  And they can't cut food stamps or WIC.

Thanks for letting me know! I got it fixed thankfully. I forget that jumping around in between the different post editing options can mess up the link :/

I agree with you 100% about there being easier access for women to get birth control. It can be so expensive even if you get the generic stuff! We do need better sex education. Texas is a perfect example where abstinence only education isn't working at all. I actually told a RWNJ last week that they only care about children while their in the womb and then they could care less. I got told that wasn't true. But if you just look around at what entitlement programs are being cut it is true. You can't do these things and then tell me that you care about children once they're born.

I think every county in America should have a school like Catherine Ferguson Academy. It would make such a difference in peoples lives.

I have always said that the right were not pro life, they were anti abortion. They don't care if the fetuses get proper nutrition they don't care about babies, they don't care about war or the poverty of the elderly. They are just caught up in the religious right manipulation, started by evil people.
