What the?!?! Lesbians 2x more likely to have abortions? March 1, 2012Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, asshatery, Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, sadness, scandals, sickness, Society.
Either these ladies are very confused (which, they are), or there’s a whole lot of people signing up for fertilization and then changing their minds, but in a “religion piece” written by a gay “minister” in a very gay-friendly website it is claimed that lesbian women have twice as many abortions as heterosexual women, and, oh, by the way, abortion is a blessing!
Did you know that, according to the Massachusetts Youth Risk Behavior Survey, lesbian and bisexual young women are more than twice as likely as their heterosexual peers to experience unintended pregnancy? [Ok, so that includes bi-sexuals, so perhaps this is more about wanton promiscuity and general amorality] Do you know queer-identified women who have had an abortion at any point in their life? Do you think people feel safe to tell you their experiences with abortion? Are you able to talk openly about the ways abortions can be transformative and liberating for many people? [What are you talking about? This guy, this ostensible “christian” minister, is talking about the deliberate killing of a child YOU conceived as being some wonderful spiritually transformative path that wonderful holy people walk. Give me a break] What questions about abortion are you comfortable with, and which ones make you anxious or angry?
Abortion is a blessing & there’s more work to be done
Concluding her powerful sermon to abortion-rights activists and clergy, Rev. Dr. Katherine Ragsdale [see here] proclaimed boldly, “These are the two things I want you, please, to remember — abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.” Too often those of us who support the right of an individual to make choices about their bodies [and the bodies of perfectly innocent others] end up making apologies for the existence of abortion. [Yes, you should, because it’s the most horrific barbarity this side of Birkenau and the slippery slope is already leading to calls for the killings of millions more] We tell ourselves and others that these practical medical procedures are emotionally damaging and cause deep hardships. [Could that be because…….they do?] Rev. Ragsdale encourages us to think and act differently. [like anti-Christian radicals completely departed from morality?] Just as the beauty of new life is miraculous, [when we want it to be, but it’s completely disposable when we don’t] so too is it miraculous for someone to choose to live their lives the way they want to. [by being lesbian, errrr, I guess, and then……having their child, or someone else’s child implanted inside them, killed] Abortions are a beautiful gift that allows people who become pregnant to make a choice about how their bodies will exist in the world. [And savagely destroys an innocent child’s body -but it’s all good to mom, until the depression and self-loathing set in]
Thus, the good Rev. Jason. I wonder if he’s never read huge sections of the Old Testament, where God’s opobrium repeatedly falls on the unfaithful Israelites for engaging in the brutal child-sacrifice of the moloch worshipping Canaanites, and how the Jews suffered tremendously for these acts of barbarity? Or is it just all rationalized away in the finest traditions of modernism?
