  • Crisis pregnancy centers deceptively steer women away from abortion. They can be started way too easily by religious groups like, for instance, a late night talk show’s megachurch.

    I am Catholic. I am also against illegal abortion, the same way I think alcohol, divorce, and gambling have to be legal, not because they are good, but because they become much worse illegal. Okay, so there is a Knights of Columbus group affiliated with my church. They seem like very kind, well-meaning sorts, so one would think maybe they would run a shelter or soup kitchen for homeless men? Maybe a halfway house for veterans who are also recovering addicts? A home for boys who age out of foster care with nowhere to go? Nope, these exclusively MEN run a crisis pregnancy center (I'm sure with some help from their wives, what girl is going to open up to a sixty-year-old man?). And they run a corny "baby bottle campaign" handing out cheap baby bottles to be filled with cash and checks and returned each October. Which I can no longer in good conscience contribute to, but I still take a bottle (and pitch it) because I really don't want to try to explain my position to an elderly guy wearing a goofy hat while everyone tries to crowd past me out the door. Bleah.

    man this comment section is FULL of people who give way too much of a shit what people do with a fetus. if you have an accidental pregnancy and you think abortion is immoral well congratulations you don't have to get one but for the people that either by circumstance or tragedy have a pregnancy and they don't want the kid for any effing reason they should do what they want and you have to respect their choice even if it grinds your gears it's not like their choice hinders your life in any way.

    People who have abortions are VERY RESPONSIBLE. The irresponsible ones are those who have children when they dont really want them and can't properly take care of them.

    So I’d like to tell my personal story about PCPs.
    When I was 16 I unexpectedly got pregnant. I lived in a very rural town in the Midwest, which meant there was no access to Planned Parenthood or any place where I could get real information. My parents told me they would kick me out of the house if it ever happened so I was afraid to talk to them. Most actual healthcare facilities wouldn’t take me without a guardian because I wasn’t old enough to legally sign my paperwork.
    There was, however, a building in town with a large sign outside offering free ultrasounds. When I looked them up they also claimed to offer free prenatal care, free baby furniture, clothes, diapers, etc. at the time I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to keep the pregnancy or not, but I was with a partner that supported me and I would’ve considered it. By the time I wound up going there I’d pretty much made up my mind that I was far enough in that I was going to keep it.
    So I went in and they asked me all kinds of really personal questions that made me very uncomfortable. They asked me for my full name, the names of my partner and my parents, they asked where I lived, where I went to school, where I worked, where my parents worked, where my partner lived.... I found out later that they weren’t required to keep any of that confidential, so if I’d gone elsewhere and terminated the pregnancy they could’ve shown up at my work or my school or my home and harassed me for it. They finish the questionnaire by asking “How would you feel knowing that God wants to help you?” And I almost had to keep myself from laughing, like ‘I feel a lot better if you wanted to help me’.
    After all these really uncomfortable questions were done they took me back and ran a drug store pregnancy test, basically the same type that I took at home. It came back positive but they informed me that their ultrasound tech was not in that day, and only was in during a time that I was at school; So basically if I wanted the free ultrasound that they offered specifically to teenage mothers I would have to skip class and try to not get caught.
    So one morning I did exactly that. I skipped class and tried to get back before they noticed I was gone. I went in, and before the ultrasound started they asked me how far in I was. I told them I was about three months in. They informed me that I would not be getting an ultrasound that day, because I was past their cut off. What they meant by that was that I was past the cut off for an abortion in the state that I lived in. So, even though I had already decided to keep the pregnancy and I needed medical help they turned me away because they couldn’t persuade me out of getting an abortion. They just didn’t care at that point.
    The whole reason why I wanted an ultrasound was because I was worried, I haven’t had any medical check ups during my pregnancy. I was worried there might be issues, that something might go wrong. They told me that everything was definitely fine and that my body was made to have a baby.
    Turns out I actually have a hemorrhaging issue that we didn’t know about before, and that I have a hereditary abnormality that makes it hard for me to carry pregnancies. Had I gone to an actual clinic they would’ve been able to tell me that after getting an ultrasound, they would’ve been able to prepare me for the risks and monitor me if not out right said that my pregnancy was too dangerous. Instead I found out about seven months in when I suddenly started pouring blood. I had no access to a doctor. I was home alone. No one knew there was any risk with me so no one was keeping an eye on me. I bled so much I went into shock and almost died. I gave birth to a stillborn, very premature, alone at home.
    The whole experience would’ve been really traumatizing even if I’d been older or been prepared for it. Even now, almost a decade later, I still have psychological issues because of it that I’m working through. It’s left a scar on me that’s going to take a long time to recover from, if I ever recover from it. And all of this could’ve been avoided if I’d had access to an actual clinic like Planned Parenthood.
    I’m genuinely disgusted by these PCPs and what they do to women.

    Women should control their own bodies. If women could control their own bodies, they wouldn't need abortions.

    • Romulus Paradise
      Romulus Paradise Day ago

      @Stephen2462 I agree. Women should have the right to an abortion. And they should also exercise caution before, during, and after sex. There are MANY forms of contraception available, and if women were really responsible for their bodies they wouldn't need so many abortions. Abortion should be something that happens when all else fails, or in cases of rape. Now, I'm hearing of cases where an abortion is performed after birth, but I am unable to ascertain if this is true. What can you tell me about that?

    • Stephen2462
      Stephen2462 3 days ago

      @Romulus Paradise That's an awfully big generalization, and not really a good justification to take rights away from all women.

    • Romulus Paradise
      Romulus Paradise 7 days ago

      @Danielle I agree. And I also believe that the abortions due to rape are a small proportion of total abortions. Yes, females should be able to get abortions. All i'm saying is females can lie, females can baby trap, females frequently aren't responsible for their bodies. So, where does that leave us?

    • Danielle
      Danielle 8 days ago +1

      Romulus Paradise See, I agree with you on some points. There are truly some terrible women out there who lie about contraception in order to “baby trap” their partners. And there are women who are irresponsible, and do not think of the potential consequences of sex before having it. I’m not saying that those people do not exist (though, I do wish that they didn’t). What I am saying is that while some abortions are caused by the people you described, others are caused by tragic situations like rape or medical complications. I am sure you are already aware of this, but many seem to forget these cases when it come to a controversial topic like abortion.

    • Romulus Paradise
      Romulus Paradise 9 days ago

      @Danielle Missed the point. If women could control their bodies before/ during sex, if women didn't frequently lie about whether or not they're on birth control, unwanted pregnancies would reduce, and the need for abortions, which are hard on female reproduction, would greatly reduce. In other words, if females took responsibility for their bodies, they might not need abortions. I realize the concept of female responsibility may be anathema to you, but there it is.

  • Archie Boye
    Archie Boye 14 days ago +1

    I'm stuck in the middle of the debate. While I don't believe in the concept of a soul, I do think abortions aren't really right for every situation (except for cases of rape, drug use, danger to the birthgiver, etc.) BUT I totally support a person's right to choose.
    Because I have a Catholic family I find it easier to get inside their heads. If a child has a soul from conception, then preventing it from coming to term must be murder, right? I never really believed that; even back when I did believe in the soul and god, it made more sense to me that the baby would have a soul when it starts to develop consciousness\feel pain, and even now I think aborting past that point is not good. But it's painful when I hear things like "If you are raped and concieve, it's god's will you have a child" come out of my grandparent's mouths'. It's terrifying, especially when you're young and had just learned about sex and reproduction. And probably also encourages women not to tell their families about their problems! And if you're Christian, using birth controll is almost as bad as getting an abortion! I don't know if they think a sperm and egg have a soul, or if they just hate anything other than what's "natural" (according to the bible, at least), but they go nuts over anything that doesn't meet their strict definition of things. But I can still understand. Because they're not crazy. They're scared. They want to think that all these rules will get them eternal life and love. If only they could start focusing on birth control and welfare.... abortions would be so rare they would probably be limited to medical emergency or rape. But instead of attacking the problem directly, they are just trying to run down a solution they don't agree with.
    IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH ABORTION AS A SOLUTION, HELP MAKE ANOTHER SOLUTION!! DON'T CUT OFF WOMEN FROM HEALTHCARE WE HAVE A RIGHT TO ACCESS.

    I will never understand how liberals justify being pro-choice and at the same time, anti-capital punishment.... Liberals are LITERALLY for killing unborn children and against killing convicted murderers. I can't wrap my head around logic that is that backwards.

    • Stephen2462
      Stephen2462 19 days ago +1

      @Cody Nieman And now you're just regurgitating the usual anti-choice propoganda spiel. I was trying to foster understanding, but so much for that plan.
      Isn't it though?
      By that logic, we should enact laws protecting sperm cells, and outlaw masturbation; because we were all sperm cells at one point.
      Again, whether that matters is subjective; nothing more then your opinion. Who cares if it could develop into a person? That doesn't make it one.
      That's because fetuses don't have the mental development to even grasp the concept of an opinion, let alone form one and articulate it. Which just lends support to not considering a fetus a person.
      And now you're just throwing stupid partisan generalizations around. Do you even want to reach an understanding, or are you just want to spew stupid insults?

    • Cody Nieman
      Cody Nieman 19 days ago

      @Stephen2462 ok first of all, a fetus in the second trimester is hardly a "clump of cells". Not to mention the fact that every single person on this planet, (yourself included) started as a "clump of cells". We're not talking about fucking skin tags here, were talking about a defenseless person in the early stages of development. That "clump of cells" WILL become a human child if you just leave it alone and let nature take it's course. It's awfully coincidental that every single person on this planet that is pro-choice has already been born.. hmm
      Second of all, it will be a cold day in hell before I hear criticism from a liberal on "emotional manipulation". THAT is the pot calling the kettle black. It's normally conservatives that make their argument from the position of Ethos and Logos, and it's liberals that make their point from a position of pathos. Case in point... Mass shootings. Why is it that liberals EXCLUSIVELY call for gun control in the immediate wake of a mass shooting? Simple, they are exploiting the emotional impact of a tragedy in pursuit of a political agenda.

    • Stephen2462
      Stephen2462 19 days ago +1

      It's not complicated; it largely comes down to a difference in opinion over when a fetus becomes a person. We simply don't consider something like a mindless clump of cells the size of a rice grain to be a person to begin with. Calling it things like "an unborn child" is just emotional manipulation.

      Also, I don't think the argument over capital punishment occurs strictly along party lines.

    Certainly there are terrible examples to be found on the CPC side.... but there are just as many terrible examples of predatory and deceptive practices being used in abortion clinics, too. Does that mean ALL abortion clinics are lying to patients and using fear tactics to make them want to abort their baby? no.. the same also holds true for CPCs. There are wonderful ones out there doing excellent work at not only supporting the mothers during pregnancy, but also thru the birth process, and afterwards (whether helping them work with adoption agencies, or helping them to be able to care for the child themselves, including offering on-going free counseling, parenting classes, access to diapers, clothes and other necessities, etc.). To categorize CPCs in general as all being like this is very disingenuous and untrue. I would also expect you, sir, to use your platform to likewise call out those abortion clinics that are using the same kind of practices/tactics to get women to choose abortion over other options... because they certainly exist as well and should be held accountable.

    Fuck you. From the bottom of my heart. When you reference your motives briefly like she did, it’s because you aren’t thinking about them, you know them and you’re convicted by them. She says “abortion won’t make them happy” and she’s fucking RIGHT. Have you MET a woman who just had an abortion? If they haven’t had piece after piece of this S**t shoveled down their gullet (and even some that did), they are shell shocked after it. It DEVASTATES THEM. It breaks them in a way they won’t ever completely heal from. And do you know what “propaganda” they show the women that come through the clinic you’re talking about? An ultrasound. And nothing else. The doctors may talk about the specifics of the procedure (which is literally RIPPING THE FETUS APART WITH A VACUME) when asked, but mainly that’s it. They’re so effective in their mission because no sane human being with any positive emotions can look at an ultrasound and not say “it’s a life.” Hell, people who PREFORM abortions get messed up over it. And you choose to mock this woman’s genuine concern. You are a sick person. Normally, I don’t comment on this stuff. Because I’m only gonna get drowned out or get harassed by people claiming I’m “taking away rights” (personally, I’m more focused on women not psychologically bombing themselves through this), But you are a special kind of sick. Also, the “pro-choice” argument is not just “intellectually dead” it’s so undead it NEVER WENT TO HIGH-SCHOOL. And I’m being literal. Because there’s a little fact in freshman biology (so important it’s taught at the beginning of the year) that says: “the smallest form life can take is a cell.” Which means, that since all the other requirements for life can be found in this process, then all you need is a moment in the process where it’s smaller than a cell. Unfortunately (as they would have learned later in freshman biology) that never occurs. The smallest it gets is conception, when the two gameat cells merge into one cell. It then grows exponentially after that, and never stops.

    • ValerieRaya

      I have met several people who just had abortions. They weren't jumping with joy but neither do people who gave birth. Ending a pregnancy isn't easy on the body. Abortion takes less of a toll and is safer than giving birth but still not a ride in the park.
      But you know what? Those people were happy. They were either dying, got the abortion to save the fetus, or carrying out wasn't an option for another reason. They knew they did the right thing, and statistics show that as well. While about 5% of people regret having an abortion, around 10% regret becoming a parent, and 75% regret giving their kid up for adoption. People need to be able to make a choice and need to be supported in that choice.
      (Btw, if you want to make abortion less needed, I find pro-choicers do a lot more than anti-choicers for that. Also, I would suggest donating to PP, as they do a lot to make abortion less needed, arguably more than most if not all anti-choice orgs)

      I'm a trans man. If I ever get pregnant I'd probably end up killing myself around month 3 cause of dysphoria induced depression if I couldn't access abortion. My friend was raped when she was 14, having a child would have not only been physically awful it would have ruined her life.

    • ValerieRaya
      ValerieRaya 21 day ago +2

      The most damage isn't caused by the abortion but anti-choice people. My friend got an abortion she needed and while she grieved, it wasn't too hard on her because she knew she had made the right choice. The people in her church though, despite knowing she would have died without the abortion, harassed her, send her death threats, closed her out, showed her little daughter gore pics, and showed up at her house, screaming at her. They had their house damaged and painted with words. She nearly killed herself and her daughter is still in therapy for the trauma. She suffers from PTSD now.
      They moved in the middle of the night, in secret, cut all contact, and are now thankfully in a more liberal area where they are safe. She still doesn't tell anyone she had an abortion because she fears she'll get death threats again.
      The abortion didn't cause any emotional damage. Anti-choicers nearly killed her twice and ruined a little girl's childhood.

      I do think emotional damage can occur, as it is common from birth (depression, etc), though less for an abortion, the body still goes through hormonal changes. On the other hand, there are people who would like to carry out but can't. In that case, the emotional damage isn't from the abortion. It's from the situation. That is why pro-choicers do so much to enable people to make their choice. Raising the minimum wage to a living wage tied to rent and making paid parental leave a legal requirement would enable many people to carry out when money is an issue. Universal health care (with free birth like in so many places) would give people a lot more money and often would make carrying out an option. Sex-positive sex-ed along with that would prevent so many pregnancies.
      In short, abortions aren't the problem. They are a symptom of a problem. If an abortion is needed, it's needed for a reason. Look at those reasons when you want to make the symptom go away.
      Also, let's stop the stigma around abortion to save more lives and prevent suffering, shall we?

    Are these people forgetting that abortion WAS illegal once before, which resulted in women trying to perform an abortion themselves with a coat hanger? Do these people not realize that these kids will either grow up in an unloving family, put up for adoption (as if there aren't already too many kids in adoption Center's), or these children will just simply be left on street corners.

    Wait! They offer opinions besides killing an unborn child?? wow that is such a crime. They offer help with the pregnancy, adoption opinions, living assistance opinion, work opportunities for women with children, counseling, and parenting counciling??? Omg what an evil place!

      They shame women for even considering abortion. Yes, they are evil.

    The merits of pro-choice or pro-life aside, CPCs exemplify conservatives donating resources for the support of pregnant women and their health. Yes, they are anti-abortion. But if it is fair to defend Planned Parenthood for their general services apart from abortion, it is at least as fair to defend these groups on the same basis. I would not speak in defense of deceptive advertising practices, but mining for quotes exemplifying deception detracts from what these people actually do and how these resources are actually spent. They do not exist solely to talk women out of abortions. Where I live, these centers routinely assist women with care who were never considering abortion, providing requisite information for ordinary medical providers as you would expect from an organization dealing with these circumstances. They are not a shell game. They provide real help to people who need it.

    There are reasons that you can support 38 CPCs in Mississippi while only having a single abortion clinic, and maybe, just maybe, some of those reasons are legitimate.

    It shouldn’t be illegal to do this... especially since abortions are time sensitive....
    ahhh and of course they don’t offer birth control! THE HYPOCRISY!

    Go fuck yourself. Stop forcing your opinion and religion on these poor women. So fuck yourself.

    "We are an Abortion clinic.. definitely so come in and listen to our pitch!"

    When the pro-lifers step up and adopt and foster EVERY SINGLE CHILD IN NEED, then they can tell people to have babies. Until then, they can fuck right off.

      I would be happy if they made sure children are fed, sheltered, educated, and not kept in cages.
      But I guess I am putting the bar a bit too high there...

    John Oliver, have you ever visited a CPC? Do some better research. Have you ever seen the baby clothes room filled with hundreds of free outfits? Or the education classes that they offer to help moms finish their education? Or the free ultrasounds that they offer? CPCs are helping women and providing real options not just "abortion is your only way out". You failed to mention that Abby Johnson, used to run a planned parenthood. Abby never said "pretend your an abortion center". Wait if it's all about women's choice? then isn't a women's choice to choose to keep a baby? Abortion is never health care.

    ProLife: abortion is murder! don’t have any abortions they’re bad!
    ProChoice: I think that, even if I myself would not get an abortion, it should be available for others. It is a choice, being pro choice doesn’t always mean *you* want an abortion, you’re just acknowledging that everyone’s body is their own, and that they can make their own choices.

    And once again Christians prove that they are some of the worst people on the planet. I'm not really surprised, but im still shocked how someone that's already going to hell can fall sooo much lower.

    Let's take a look at their crimes, shall we?

    - Emotional Manipulation
    - Lying
    - Ruining a person's future by forcing a pregnancy onto them
    - And worst of all, ruining the lives of not only one person but two; the rape victim, aka the mother (but then again, you christians don't really see rape victims as women or people, just like we don't see you as human beings, so it evens out) wherein a rape victim is forced to have a baby she didn't want, gets stuck in financial hell because she is able to take care of her baby, and is thus in turn forced to give the baby away.

    *Slow clap*

    Well done, christians. Well played. I'm sure Satan is proud of how much misery your causing, cause you sure as hefle aren't spreading the word of god. Quite the oppisite:(

    I'm sure everyone commenting has watched 'Unplanned' to get both sides.

      So you think everyone who is against torture should first watch a movie glorifying torture to 'get both sides'?
      Sometimes, there are no equal two sides. If one side wants to protect human rights, people's wellbeing and lives and the other side wants to take that away and make people property (which is what anti-choice rethoric is when stripped of all decorations), why would you want to listen to that side? They clearly have nothing good to say.
      And just to be clear: I have spoken with many anti-choicers and had them tell my people being property is actually a good thing and why causing people to die is perfectly fine. And they aren't all evil, some are just misguided. But they are all standing against human rights, are inherently misogynistic, classist, ableist, and that is not a side anyone should be one.
