Your Body by impersonalinfo Your Body by impersonalinfo
it should be obvious enough from all the other things I'm into that I don't give a damn what another woman does with her own body.

It's when you start to claim that "your body" includes something that is quite clearly another person entirely - sleeping when you're awake and waking when you're asleep, using its own eyes to look at things you'll never see, experiencing dreams that you'll never know about, hearing the same things you do day in and day out and processing them independently without consulting you etc., that the argument gets a little ridiculous.

inspired by

people making controversial stamps and then disabling the comments are like my primary source of inspiration lately.

Actually it's more like:

First image: "My body"

Second image: "A parasite leeching off my body that needs to be exterminated."

I can't believe that people in the comments are trying to make this a gender issue.

"Wah, wah! If the evil MEN had a device 2 make all babbys male, der wud be NO abortions, yu sexist conservative tard!"

I wonder why people are spending big bucks on gender selection treatments (such as PGS) to have female babies, then...

So you're saying a 13-year-old who could have been raped should go on with the pregnancy? :stare:

I want to voice my opinion and respond to a comment on the next page of comments. 

One: I think most people are against abortion because it revolves around a human fetus, not arachnids that suck your blood. Ticks are harmful to your body, whereas an unborn human child is not always harmful. I'm well aware that there are certain situations in which the baby can be harmful to the mother, but most of the time, it's just as harmless as a baby that's outside of the womb. Why bring ticks into a situation that's already complicated enough?
Two: "Parasite"? In what situation would a human fetus ever be considered a "parasite"? It may draw strength from its mother, but it's completely harmless. A parasite, according to most universities and government-sponsered websites, is "an organism that seeks out, lives on or in a host organism, and benefits at the expense of its host." A fetus may benefit, but it never willingly infultrates a mother's womb, nor does it intentionally harm the mother. 
Three: Who says that a fetus cannot feel pain? I understand that some scientests and researchers often state that before a certain developmental stage, an embryo's sensory cells are unable to respond to such things, but what of unborn children that are aborted after that stage? There used to be an abortion method in which the doctor would stab a pair of scissors into the base of a fetus' neck and allow it to bleed to death, but then it was outlawed due to the fact that it was "inhumane and cruel". So, if a human fetus cannot feel pain, why was that method outlawed in the first place? Because of the display of blood caused by the method? I doubt it. 
Four, because this topic irks me so much: Why is it that some (NOT ALL) Pro-Choice people consider a fetus unliving until it is born? 
Have any of them ever seen the famous picture in which a human fetus, during surgery, is grasping the doctor's thumb? And have any of them seen the pictures in which the fetus sucks their thumb, or heard of the common stories of reactions to sounds made from outside its environment, such as kicks to the sac? Ever heard of those heartwarming moments when a mother calls her husband or her other children to feel the baby's "kicks"? How on Earth is that baby unliving? 
Five: Addressing arguments about rape and life-or-death situations involving the mother is difficult. I understand that. It's more than difficult; it's nearly impossible. But when I hear of rape, I still lean toward the Pro-Life side of things. I know that the topic is sensitive and painful and brings up beyond-awful memories, but imagine the result of rape in the first place: a baby. A child. A human being. Someone that, once (s)he is born, could accomplish great things, live an amazing life. They can make friends, have birthdays, experience the wonders and joys of life. And don't even bring up the "disability" argument. My younger sister has Down syndrome, and she is the happiest, most beautiful, innocent girl I've ever met in the extent of my life. She laughs, dances, speaks, and learns just like any other human being. Rape, to me, is no excuse to not have the child. How could you strip someone of their chance at seeing the sun for the first time, open their mouth and say their first words? How could you murder a baby, just waiting to take their first steps and eat and play just like the rest of us? 

I can't express how much this argument tears me up on the inside. I realize that it isn't just black and white, that some cases are shades of grey in between, but really....think about it.

If it came down to it, all you Pro-Choicers, could you really look a doctor in the eye and say, "Abort my child, please."

I know that I couldn't.

Just because it's not your body, does not mean that you have to put another in this world that is overpopulated. It's not about being irresponsible for having unprotected sex, it has to do with possible birth defects, and the health of the mother. A mother only wants her child to be healthy and safe, and if the mother dies, the child may not finish developing, thus, killing both bodies. I am going to ask you a question, and you bloody well answer.

Would you rather a mother have an abortion for a rape child, or follow through with that rape child because her sky daddy made of clouds told her to?

I think the answer is pretty obvious.

It doesn't matter. What if a rape victim wanted an abortion? Or a secondary school/college student? What if one just doesn't want a baby? Personally, it is better to get an abortion than to ruin your life with a red, useless gremlin.
Let the hate comments flow in! :D

If it's for the sake of the woman's life, then the abortion is necessary. I am aware that there are certain situations where an abortion would be the only sensible choice and can't be avoided, such as the imminent death of the child. Unfortunately, legitimate reasons like those make up a small percentage of all abortions.

:iconforeverfoxwings:
Foreverfoxwings Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, but it is not as important as something that can breathe, think, talk, etc. 
Also, if abortion is outlawed, then the adoption clinics would be too full. We are already overpopulating.
Many of these kids would be put in these clinics to be taken care of and live in, usually never getting adopted. It would help for the sake of the mother and child if there was just an abortion, the child would never exist and never know about live so it wouldn't be a big deal, and the mother wouldn't have to go through usually severe trauma and depression.

Your point is fair. I honestly believe it isn't a problem that can be solved unless the majority of America learns to become more responsible with their sex, which unfortunately won't be happening anytime soon. It really isn't an issue that can be subdued with simply a law. But that's just my view.

If females had a device to force babies into those of the male gender, then many would complain WE DON'T WANT THESE, WE NEVER ASKED FOR THIS LET US HAVE THE RIGHT TO GET RID OF IT! But what if females said no, it's their burden, that's how many females feel when they don't have a choice what to do with THEIR body.

My body, my choice.
My life, my choice.

It's not yours, or anyone else's.

Some people are raped, can't take of a baby, are only in highschool, have lack of knowledge of protected sex, the condom broke, can't take medication, or just do not want a child to take care of.

They are not a living person, they have no choice in what they say. But when you say, no you can't decide because your life is not as important as this fetus, so basically you're useless and have no choice whatsoever. SO GET OVER IT!!, I hate how men tell women they can't choose their body's rights. Shut up and stop telling what females can and can't do.

Yes because as a human we must abide to nature. Males can have a uterus but does that mean they must bare a child?

Males cannot have a Uterus, it's impossible, there has to be a mutation or defect in order for that to happen, and even then, if you were born with a Uterus, you're classified as a woman.

If I may, I would like to point out that the maker of this stamp is female.

Not every single female agrees with abortion, love. 
And not every single male is against abortion. 

Some women are Pro-Life. 
Some men are Pro-Choice. 

I don't think pulling the gender card really applies to this situation.

And yet you don't think of poor women whose life will be ruined because people like you don't give them the right to choose. And of the children that would grow unloved because their mother had to raise them against her will.

I hate when people say that it's a parasite. I'm twelve so I'm not sure if my argument counts but I think the reason a good mother's love is so strong for their baby is because of the potential harm it may cause. Let me break it down
"I went through hell and back to bring this baby here, I'm not letting it die anytime soon!" Is what I think goes through a mother's mind. I'm not saying ether side is right, I'm more in the middle I'm just leaning more towards pro-life. And before you say that this is for adults I'm more mature then kids my age I'm not going to fight u because your opinions is different because I've seen first hand that opinions can only be changed by the people who agree w/ the opinion.

Would you want to get rid of ticks on your body if you have ticks? Apparently by removing and disposing of the tick you are a murderer.

I mean the embryo/foetus is a parasite, it's not human (at this point) and it could potentially harm the host. If anything getting rid of the tick is worse because the tick can actually feel pain and the embryo/foetus usually can't.

If we ban abortion then we should ban tick removal!

The woman has control over it because its only a mass of cells (in the beginning tho) and if its her creation she should do whatever she wants with it.
It's an unborn thing, and its not individual unless it leaves her body.
