I am Pro-Choice, and I 100% agree with this woman. This is mainly the reason that I am pro-choice. People will fight for this unborn fetus, saying that doctors are denying its basic human rights if the mother chooses to abort it. What do they care once the baby is born? Once they have done "God's will" and their hands are wiped clean. They then deny the child what is necessary for life.
"We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."

Sister Joan Chittister on pro-birth. .....wow. I've never thought of it that way. Good point.
"We need a much broader conversation on the morality of pro-life is." Sister Joan Chittister
I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is. - Sister Joan Chittister, Benedictine #quotes
Sister Joan Chittister, a Benedictine nun, had this to say on Bill Moyers' show in November of 2004: "I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth...."

"Pro-life" logic, is no logic at all.
Pro Life Logic, Prolife, Fucking Twats, New Life, Prochoice Feminism, Pro Lifers, Seriously Ppl, Life Isn T
Listen. Before we getting all "save the babies" let's help the children of today and right now so maybe people feel comfortable bring new life.
For real. Pro life logic: Save the children!!!....... until they're born and coherent to the terrible conditions in their lives, then just forget it.
Pro-life logic. It's not prolife. I'm anti abortion but THIS is kinda how people get....maybe if the world were a better place, people wouldn't have so many abortions. Trying to just stop abortions may not be the best place to start if you want to stop abortions.
ProLife means that we strive to defend ALL stages of life, pre-born, born, elderly. Yes, we want abortion to be abolished but that doesn't mean that we want to neglect the needs of all the people who have already been born. We want all kids to be wanted and loved, to have education and healthcare. Just because we disagree with socialism doesn't mean we don't care about the poor and suffering. #prolife #prochoice
Why don't we help the children already here you Fucking twats!
Great idea... Pro life logic... THERE'S NO DAMN LOGIC!
The ignorance of prolife
Hate pro life logic
Respect your children's intellectual autonomy.

Boing Boing - I want you to give me a future where I am taught to question everything, where my friends and I are not brained washed at an early age to believe stone age myths. A future where I am not taught it is honorable and brave to die for you because you're too fucking lazy, bigoted and small minded to prefer peace over war and death.
Too many lives lost in the name of religion. Too many die fighting for political reasons. War is not the answer, give peace a chance.

A question to Conservatives who believe in a ban on abortions. After your twelve year old daughter is beaten and raped...how do you tell her since her body was not able to "shut down" and prevent her pregancy...that you voted for laws to force her to have the child of the monster that stole her childhood, her innocence and her future?~~We the People
because one republican said this, doesn't mean we all believe this. I am republican and don't agree with what he said and I am pro choice !!!
Tough to look at? Well remember this when you vote. VOTE THE GOP OUT!!! #feminism #equality #women #girls #humanrights #rape #abortion
...I usually keep my political opinions out of FB postings and Pinterest pins...but C'MON! Think about this before you vote, please!
This question is not a moral issue - but abortion because someone decided to get drunk and have unprotected sex is a moral issue - abortion as sex control is simply wrong. Use birth control or control your urges.
No conservative I know would deny a young rape victim an abortion. Her tragic experience is not the fault of conservatives who believe in the sanctity of life. Turn your anger upon the "monster" who did this to her.

Political... Sorry guys.
So how about believing in humans instead. They actually exist.
Exactly, Considered God S, Atheism, Gods Love, Biblical God, All Seeing God, Believe In God, Exist
Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Children, Rape, Torture, Death, Murder. Would you allow your child to be raped, tortured, and murdered if you were fully able to stop it? God would.
god's love - there is absolutely no way you can reason out that your god is loving if 'he' has the power to stop atrocities but does nothing. No excuse whatsoever.
If a god actually did exist as Religious people claim he does nothing at all about the terrible things that happen to children or even the most devout Believers ! If for some extremely strange reason ever worship anyone, it would definitely be such a 'wonderous' god like the deity adopted by the the christians ! ! ?
No all knowing, loving god here. The Greeks and Romans may have been on to something, with human-like deities who need appeasing and prayer to alter our existence (the root of Christian prayer habits). If it exists, it's not deserving of worship, showing no evidence of its one existence or a want to be recognized. Not worth my time...
God would! #god #religion #faith #rape #crime #violence #genocide #Christian #Christianity #Islam #Judaism #atheism
And the biblical God does...every day. How do we know? Cuz the bible tells us so.
Or the more realistic answer, a personal god does not exist.
If you believe in god, that is.
Georgecarlin, Quotes, Truth, Thought, George Carlin, Read Teach, Kid
"Don't just teach your children to read. Teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything." - George Carlin
I don't care for Carlin, but this quote is right on the money! Every chapter book from the time they're very young: "Who or what is God in this book?", "Did the characters make good or bad decisions based on their "god"?, "Did the characters make good or bad decisions based on the truth of God's Word?" Don't let the kids blindly fill their heads with someone else's philosophy and worldview!!!
George Carlin... question everything! Blind acceptance is not the way to go. Ask the kids to explain the last book they read and if there might be different points of view than the author's. The mind is a garden--cultivate it frequently and carefully.
George Carlin... question everything! YES! Curious kids are smart, observant, and eager to learn- encourage that!
George Carlin...The sad fact is that today, in general reporters today, will not hesitate to tell you what they think of what they are reporting. There was a time when the reporter, reported without giving personal thoughts on the matter. That was for the opinion section. The people made up their own mind. That how the truth was found. THINK FOR YOURSELF PEOPLE--OR THE GOVERNMENT WILL DO IT FOR YOU!
This is why no child should go around mocking their parents or leaders without being disciplined in a firm manner...And all children should be loved to peices upon their rising and the setting of the sun...and told stories of their elders, of the bible, and of the love of God which surpasses all human conditions and embraces each one of us completely.

Too bad those that don't deal with their problems and run instead, can't understand the damage they have done to their children's security blanket. Think before you cheat and destroy families that care! You only thought of yourself, that's not respect to those that care and respected you.
Parents that respect each other! So true!! My parents showed me this, hubby's parents showed him this and we plan to show our kids this. Children learn by example, be mindful how you treat your spouse :-)
"The best security blanket a child can have is parents who respect each other." (This is especially true for divorced parents. We have our differences, but the best decision my ex and I ever made was that our children didn't need to be in the middle of them. Our mistakes should not become our children's baggage.)

Wow. Bi racial is still just BLACK. History hasn't changed. Some whites feel like bi-racial means TAINTED.
Pictured are Isaac White and Rosina Downs. They both were slave children in New Orleans, and were emancipated in 1864 when General Butler took New Orleans (pinning for the link to a historical photo blog-very interesting)
*'White' slaves used for 1860s fundraiser propaganda Lighter skinned slave children of mixed race heritage were used as part of a fundraising campaign to help struggling African American schools in 1860s New Orleans. Campaign organizers believed the lighter complexioned children would help boost donations to their cause.

Seriously! And your credibility plummets even further when you cite people like Jenny McCarthy as 'experts.'
Science and doctors exist to guide you in the medicine your kid needs precisely because you aren't a scientist or doctor.
Seriously!!! One should always think for themselves and question everything twice, but reading ONE book does not make you a Doctor.
just because a baby crawled out of you, doesn't mean a phd did
Haha...people are dumb! Vaccinate your kids!
