In Ireland, abortion is illegal, but yet again, the subject has come up for debate and divided the country in two. It’s a sensitive topic here and the issue gets my blood boiling, so prepare for a serious rant.
If you’re a man and you’re pro-choice, think twice.
I used to be pro-choice, but I was forced to re-consider my position after some lengthy and arduous internal struggle.
Let me explain.
I’m normally as liberal as they come when it comes to social constraints (I’m European, after all), so people are quite surprised when I tell them I’m pro-life on abortion (politically, at least).
It’s not because I think life is sacred or I’m religious or I’m thinking about the poor ickle children. I couldn’t give a shit. Fuck the children. Kill them all. I wholeheartedly support China’s one child policy. There’s too many bloody people in the world, anyway. We’re nothing but a virus that consumes, pollutes, destroys, and rapes the Earth. Throw unwanted babies to the dogs, I say.
In the book Freakonomics, they’ve even demonstrated that legalising abortion yeilds lower crimes for the decades after implementation – as all the future scumbags are scrambled out of the vaginas of filthy sluts who’ve been pumped and dumped by guys like me.
“So wait, why are you pro-life?” I hear you ask.
As you can see, I’m not really pro-life at all, but sadly, I’m forced to be – because being “pro-choice” is even worse.
Why “pro-choice” is bullshit
The truth is “pro-choice” is anti-equality. Why? – Because such a choice is exclusively reserved for women. Abortion only gives women the right to murder the unborn.
What about men?
Why can’t we kill babies, too?
If women are given the right to abort, men should get the same right.
If feminists want the choice to terminate a pregnancy and forfeit twenty or so years of responsibility, resources, and time, men should also have that choice.
We need pro-choice in it’s humanist form, not “pro-choice” as it is today – in it’s feminist form.
Wouldn’t that be awesome?
“Girl, no way I’m having a baby with you. And guess what? I have a court order here to stick up a Dyson up your ass and suck that fucker out.”
But sadly, abortion legislation is only for people with vaginas.
If you’re a woman and don’t want a kid, you can simply abort the unwanted embryo, continue on your career path, fuck around a little more, and when you’re finally ready, you can be more considerate with regard to your family planning by picking a beta sap who is actually willing to stick around and raise the child. (Or just grab whatever your old desperate ass can get).
But if you’re a man and don’t want a kid, you’re fucked. Unlike a woman, you have absolutely no legal power if you knock a girl up. She can keep the kid and make you pay for it the rest of your life, draining you of every penny you got. And if you don’t pay up? People will can you a “deadbeat dad” and the state can even throw you in jail!
What a load of bollocks.
Pro-choice only gives women the choice. There is no equality in abortion.
OK, I don’t want to go around ordering my girlfriend’s to get abortion, but at the very least, if abortion was legalised, the man should be able to sign a form (or not sign a form in some cases) that abdicates him of any responsibility – the exact same way abortion abdicates women of such responsibility.
Until “pro-choice” means pro-choice for all, I’m forced to remain pro-life, because pro-choice is anti-male.
