|Again, I have to ask, what kind of Utopian answer is there? Women are oppressed if they are forced to give birth against their will; women are oppressed if they are forced to abort against their will...|
|That's a VERY good article, but I just don't understand how the author ISN'T pro-choice! She's not pro-every-abortion, but that's now what being pro-choice is about.|
There is no Utopian answer here....merely a different perscpective on the subject. Women are trying to claim their own bodies....and yet through abortion....they are not only allowing an invasive and in some cases dangerous surgery to be done on them....but they are also paying for the "pleasure" to have it done. This is not progress...it is merely the same opression...only we tell ourselves it is "our" choice. Poo wrapped up in a pretty package....is still.....poo.
|I get this perspective, I really do, but I think taking away the choice to gestate or not is more oppressive.
If you don't even have the choice to make, how can you be free?
She is pro-woman....all women. She sees abortion as a way for society to make a buck off women at a time when most are scared, confused, and upset.
Where does the article say that?
You don't legally have the choice to do away with your mother even though she is border line psychotic, smothering, and habitually in your business. Does that make you feel unfree too?
|"I think nightangel's perspective is a good prolife one to have: she wants to change people's minds-not make abortion illegal, but make it so people don't want abortions. "
That would make her technically pro-choice.
|Wait a minute, what's wrong or anti-feminist about being a housewife??
