We make it so scary, so wrong; it brings so much disapproval and judgment down on us that we’re afraid to just say it. I am not anti-abortion. In fact, I am pro-abortion. I am 100% behind any person who needs an abortion having an abortion, and I place “for the sake of mental and emotional health” in the “needs” column.
Say it with me now, scarier but oh-so-freeing: I am pro-abortion.
I am pro-heart transplant, pro-appendix removal, and pro-abortion, whenever one of those is medically necessary. Now the argument will be, it trivializes abortion to say it’s as easy as appendix removal! But it doesn’t trivialize it. The medical reality is that an abortion in the first eight weeks is easier than getting an appendix removed, and the recovery time is much shorter. If that scares you, ask yourself why. Because it shouldn’t. The shame and stigma around abortion is a social invention. Abortions are a legal medical procedure that many people undergo. People who have children, people who want children, people who will never be parents – from all walks of life, we have abortions. And for that reason amongst so many others, I am pro-abortion. Go on, say it with me now, it’s freeing, I promise: I am pro-abortion.
Also, check out the comments section for a glimpse into Kaitlyn's research methodology. In her post she claims that 46% of American women will have abortions. She is challenged on this statistic by a pro-choicer who notes that the Guttmacher Institute puts the number at 33%. Kaitlyn responds,
I got 46% hot off the press from a prochoice working (worker?) in Kansas. I checked and found an anti-choice group (I’d rather not direct you to their site) putting it at 43%. I believe Guttmacher’s numbers, while accurate and meticulously researched, are outdated.In fact, 43% is the old, outdated number the Guttmacher Institute used to use.
So let's review Kaitlyn's research methodology. She wants a statistic so she calls some Kansas pro-choice worker. She gets a statistic, doesn't ask where it came from and doesn't verify it. Then when challenged on the statistic, she tries to look it up and finds an old statistic posted on an prolife web site which didn't source the statistic either. She accepts this statistic as true despite having no clue where it came from.
