Y’all Acting Like You’ve Never Heard an Argument Before
Posted on August 16, 2018
Guess who’s being disingenuous again? That’s right, it’s the zygote lovers, at it again! Here is a direct quote from Chelsea Clinton at a Rise Up For Roe event (quick reminder: this event was last Saturday and these people are JUST FINDING OUT ABOUT IT NOW):
“Whether you fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access — because again these are not fundamentally the same thing — if you care about social justice, economic justice, agency, you have to care about this. Right? It is not a disconnected fact— to Jesse’s T-shirt of 1973 — that American women entering the labor force from 1970 to 2009 added 3 and a half trillion dollars to our economy. Right? Like the net new entrance of woman. That is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973. So whatever it is that people say they care about I think you can connect to this issue. Of course I would hope that they would care about our equal rights and dignity to make our own choices. But if that is not sufficiently persuasive, hopefully some of these other arguments that you’re hearing expressed so beautifully will be.”
GUESS WHAT THE WOMBSDAY PREPPERS ARE MAD ABOUT!? That $3.5 trillion number of course! They think it’s callous! They think it’s taking a “moral” issue and making it about numbers. Well guess what, you fools, that’s (partially) what she is saying too. If the other side won’t MORALLY understand that humans deserve bodily autonomy AS A RIGHT, maybe they’ll understand numbers. AND what she’s also saying is not “Abortion = money.” COME FUCKING ON! Like, don’t purposely play ignorant to her argument because you wanna just go after Chelsea Clinton (cuz by the way, we know your side LOVES to do that and is just waiting for a moment to be able to do it again). Of COURSE economic freedom and reproductive freedom are linked. Of course people being able to control when they have children (and if) would bolster the economy. Because maybe someone wants to get a livable salary before bringing another human being into the world!
So yeah, we’re very bored with these disingenuous angry comments from the sidewalk screamers, just waiting for someone to say one thing they can latch onto and suck blood out of and take out of context. Do better!
