After seeing a few people link to this site on my Tumblr feed today, I’m making a personal pledge to help everyone at untilabortionends.com keep improving their diet so that they can live longer and healthier lives.
The members of that site seem quite earnest, and I hope in principle to be respectful of everyone no matter strongly I disagree, so I’m trying not to be TOO snarky here. But the underlying logic of this protest is baffling. They seem to be hoping that women who’ve decided to seek an abortion will visit this site and say “wow, if you feel strongly enough about this that you’re making the irrevocable life-changing decision of giving up Dr. Pepper, maybe I should reconsider having a child that I can’t support!”
Tee hee, yet another reason to support abortion rights!
Though framing abortion as “women’s reproductive rights” is somewhat cissexist because it completely subsumes the concerns of trans* people who can get pregnant (as well as trans* women whose reproductive rights are denied, but differently) and follows some pretty shitty precedent for excluding trans* folks from access to healthcare. But only rhetorically so okay.
