I hear stories of abortion & I see myself falling to the ground in tears begging for the life of the child, desperately offering to adopt it instead.
Then I remember I am nineteen. With no job. No husband to help me raise one. Nothing.
And so I remember to pray earnestly.
This organization—Save the Storks—offers women the opportunity to see their child before aborting it. Three out of five mothers change their mind and do not go through with the procedure.
“We seek to persuade every abortion-minded mother to choose life and to share with them the good news of Jesus.” Amen.
YAY THREE OUT OF FIVE PEOPLE ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO EMOTIONAL MANIPULATION. WOOOOOHOOO!
Save the storks, are you fucking serious? Pregnant people aren’t fucking storks. God mind your own fucking business and stop shoving your Jesus bullshit on people.
“I hear stories of abortion & I see myself falling to the ground in tears begging for the life of the child, desperately offering to adopt it instead.”
What does this mean, you “see yourself” having this melodramatic reaction to other people’s medical decisions? And if you really feel this way, what does your age, employment status and marital status matter? THERE ARE BABIES’ LIVES ON THE LINE! Didn’t you see the ultrasound?
Storks. Who are the “storks” exactly? “Save the storks” doesn’t even make sense. As usual, the women are completely erased from pregnancy.
Also, does the would-be-adoptive-parent OP not see the irony in “Then I remember I am nineteen. With no job. No husband to help me raise one. Nothing.” as the reason they just can’t adopt maybe being the exact same reason a pregnant woman wants to end their pregnancy?
Let me tell you guys something: Before this whole medical school thing, I was a stage manager and I worked on a lot of shows in high school, college, and professionally. I dealt with a lot of people with different personalities and people who were difficult to work with, so I know what it looks like when someone is being over dramatic.
And the OP’s opening line is so on the level of being over dramatic and ridiculous that I cannot even truly describe the level of eye rolling that I just displayed. Like on a scale of 1-10, my level of eye rolling was a 15.
I just experienced a level 15 eye rolling…all directed at you, dripplet.
Also, the bolded is pretty much what I thought, too. The cognitive dissonance present in the anti-choice movement never fails to astound me.
I’m more concerned with avoiding the stork, thanks.
I miss that campaign.
This one is just plain creepy and disgusting. They lure vulnerable people into their windowless van, emotionally manipulate them (as kindly demonstrated by the OP), and then…what? Provide resources for the pregnant person to care for themselves and the pregnancy? Information on prenatal and postnatal care? Shelter for victims of domestic violence and child abuse? Child care?
Yeah, I didn’t think so. More proof anti-choicers don’t give a shit about pregnant people.
