"So you know what I tell these anti-abortion people? I say 'If you think a fetus is more important then a woman, try getting a fetus to wash the shit stains out of your underwear. For no pay and no pension.'"

Oh, I get it. Took me a while there because the idea that people who oppose abortion also oppose women in general is so utterly untrue.


This argument is just another diversionary tactic. Forget all about the >40 million people (women included) that abortion supporters have maimed and killed and move right to the hackneyed "pro-lifers hate women". Ugh, the rhetoric is really stale.

For the record, the abortion opposer doesn't think a fetus is more important than a woman. We think they're both equally human and therefore equally important.

However, we do think that a child's physical survival is more pressing than a temporary maternal challenge, and, unlike certain others, we are not proponents of fortune-telling.

In other words, we do not vigorously assure women that if they continue to let their children grow unharmed they will be destined to a life of washing soiled underwear for no pay and pension. On the contrary. We have much more faith in women than that.

Abortion opposers know that women deserve their children and a promising future, and we don't subscribe to the hopeless belief that women should have to choose between the two. People who have faith in and respect for women know that we are strong enough and smart enough to have both.
