Here’s the deal. I believe in Choice and the ability for a woman to control her body and what she does with it.
That means that I will support a woman or trans man’s right to have a baby at any time and in any way that does not involve breaking laws.
No matter how old they are.
No matter how young they are.
No matter their economic status
No matter the size of their family
No matter the manner of fertilization
No matter their sexual orientation
No matter their race
No matter if they have a disability
No matter if they are addicted to drugs
No matter if they are mentally ill.
Because I am Pro-Choice and to act like the only choice that matters is the one that I would make or that I think makes sense from my limited and privileged worldview is arrogant and makes me anti-choice. If we consistently argue that people should trust women and their decision to abort and stress that we should not assume that they did not think it through then why would we assume someone who chooses to have a baby has not made a thoughtful decision. Could it be that perhaps we have bought into the sexist belief that women are just crazed baby-makers.
Every child that comes into this world runs the risks, some may have higher risks than others due to their parents, but since we don’t live in a world that controls who can reproduce and I sure as hell don’t want to then why don’t we all SHUT THE FUCK UP and actually do what we say we do: TRUST WOMEN WITH THEIR OWN BODIES.
