but you folks should know that pro-choicers who treat it cavalierly, as if it's just a piece of bacon that's being removed, make a lot of the rest of us sick.

Hence the phrase "a lot." Is that everyone?

Do you actually read what's there, or do you just randomly toss out the parts you don't like?

You didn't "take another option" though now you admit you had some.

I did look at those options. They weren't good enough, so I didn't take them. I'm sorry, I wasn't aware I was dealing with the sort of asshole pedant where I'd have to say, "No, I'm sorry. I didn't think about selling the baby off to slavers, which would solve our financial problems" to make it clear that the options have to be valid ones that actually work for you.

If I have to draw a distinction between "good" and "bad" options that serve the needs of the man and woman and potential child, then frankly you're either a) too dim to grok any sort of meaningful distinction, or b) just looking to bitch a lot and feel superior.

It could be a). That's a, you know, option. But then we move on to this:

Definitely this is a statistical sample.

Just as yours is. OMG, YOU'VE RUN THIS COMMUNITY FOR FIVE YEARS! How statistical. How awesome.

And clearly, your own attitude wouldn't encourage a variety of stories, either. The good news is that your sample is superior to mine! You win, because you want to be right. You don't cite surveys, you don't cite studies... No, when backed into a corner, you immediately start dissecting my experiences, without ever considering that everything you have said to me is subject to the same conditions.

Are you any better? Oh, I suppose we could get into a dickwar and compare pure numbers, but... Every community and person self-selects the experiences it finds. Including you. And yeah, I'm sure you're non-judgmental - I'm seeing that utter lack of judgment right now.

But it doesn't matter. As I suspected earlier, you want to be right. You don't want to debate, you just want to prove points. Go for you.

oh, I see. So really, what you meant to say there is "other people find it sick when pro-choicers believe that a fetus is just a piece of bacon..... but uh, not me, I'm down with that viewpoint"? You are actually trying to say that you weren't incorporating yourself into that condemnation?

Instead of Ferrett you should call yourself Weasel. Do you seriously believe your own bullshit?


I'm sorry, I wasn't aware I was dealing with the sort of asshole pedant where I'd have to say, "No, I'm sorry. I didn't think about selling the baby off to slavers,

Y halo thar strawman! That was totally your only other option, right?


Just as yours is. OMG, YOU'VE RUN THIS COMMUNITY FOR FIVE YEARS! How statistical. How awesome.
Uh, yeah, I think that five years worth of experience is a pretty good sample. Better than you talking to a few buddies, for sure. But you are right that it is pretty awesome :)


And clearly, your own attitude wouldn't encourage a variety of stories, either.
lol. My own attitude has encouraged every kind of story there is. abortioninfo is an entirely safe space. Don't believe me? Go look at it. The stories are archived. I've got nothing to hide, because I'm right. Also, I run afterabortion , BTW. Another safe-space community. No judgments, no pressure, no expectations, only support.


You don't cite surveys, you don't cite studies...
I don't really need to cite anything other than my own experience, since your statement was that everyone feels a certain way after an abortion, and I didn't. This automatically shows that your statement is wrong.

Furthermore, you can easily look at the communities yourself. As for studies, why is it that I'm required to produce studies to refute YOUR unsupported claims? however, studies are readily available from the Guttmacher institute (see, e.g., here.)


As I suspected earlier, you want to be right.
lol. totally unlike you!

look, it's obvious that you're unable to admit to your own words. You're so just loving that moral high horse and your own martyrdom. Crawl off the cross, my friend, someone needs the wood.

You may now have the last word :)

I find it so awesome that The Ferrett didn't feel the need to have the last word. It was probably decent enough letting you go out as an absolute ass with absolutely no further point to prove because you seriously refuted his comment "As I suspected earlier, you want to be right."

Eyelid, you're an asshole confused for a feminist.
