The closest post that I have done with regards to abortion was the one I did about the racist Margaret Sanger and her Negro Project. But having this new Republican VP who is so over the top with her views of abortion, I just feel the need to weigh in on the actual subject of Anti-Abortion or Pro-Life or whatever you call it. She is so hard right on the issue, she would like to not only make it illegal for everyone but she would also make it illegal for those who were raped and even instances of incest. How sick is that?
What brought me to this point is that after sharing her views on abortion she had the impudence to start talking about getting on a plane while in early labor. Now this is not a big deal, but with a lot of people questioning her decision to board an airplane while she claims her water was leaking and was in early labor in order to make it back to Alaska from Dallas Texas. Now to me, if I am carrying any baby but especially a special needs baby, I don’t think it is very prudent to be making such a long flight knowing that something could go terribly wrong while at 35,0000 feet and god forbid you lose the baby and or your life.
Now what made this important to me was the fact that she stated that people should mind their own business and to respect her right to choose what she wanted to with her body and if that meant boarding a plane while in early pregnancy then so be it. Now isn’t that a hypocritical view on ones own body? I mean she wants to tell me that she and those like her have the right to tell the majority of America what to do or what not to do with their bodies by outlawing abortion. Yet, she should have every freedom in the world to make bad decisions regarding her body AND the life of her unborn baby.
I personally don’t necessarily think that abortion is something that in my life right now I would choose to do. But I would be damned if I was raped, that she or anyone else in this world would stop me from doing whatever I felt was necessary for me and my family at that time. Not to mention she obviously felt the same way or she would have given in to the medical knowledge at the time which clearly states, at least in all the literature on pregnancy given out, that you shouldn’t be flying while you are beyond seven months pregnant for safety reasons.
But she obviously felt that it was important for her and or her family that she board that plane and make it back to Alaska with enough time to deliver the baby that next day. She had the RIGHT to make that decision. And she has the nerve to talk about wanting to have the right to make decisions regarding her body. I still can’t get over that. I want to deny you rights to do what YOU want with your body, but you better understand that I have the right to do what I want with my body. She proves to me each day I listen to her what a hypocrite she is. And we haven’t known her more than a week or two. That is a shame.
She wants to hold her daughter up as some sort of boost for right to life while ignoring the fact that she had underage unprotected premarital sex showing that her dumb stance on sex education DOESN’T WORK. At least it didn’t work for her family. Then you have all these people saying that this just shows that she is a real person and just like the rest of us. Yet when an inner city underage girl gets pregnant they scream about the decline of family values, or how the inner city girl who is probably black is a statistic. While her daughter just made a mistake that is now turning into a blessing from god since she decided to marry her baby daddy. How inner city children who make that “mistake” are being corrupted by the sex and violence of television or hip hop music. Doesn’t this just take the cake? I believe that they should drop the straight talk express and rename it the hypocrite express.
