Currently reading Sometimes I come across a topic I want to know more about and start reading everything I can get my hands on. One recent interest was abortion providers. I wanted to learn why someone would choose this line of work given the violence and persecution they face.
I first read Suzanne P. My Journey As an Abortion Doctor. The writing in both books was so-so, but the stories were gripping.
During my searching I also read a lecture by Dr. I just finished the book Dispatches from the Abortion Wars: I have to say that the more I read about abortion debates in North America, the more incensed I become at the whole mess.
In the past, I'd never strongly identified with either of the two ideological camps. I had understood abortion as a morally complex issue laden with shades of gray. It wasn't something I would have chosen for an unintended pregnancy after consensual sex I've never been in that situation, so it's easier said than donebut definitely something I would have considered for other situations--rape, incest, threats to my health, etc.
There are so many reasons, so many situations, that bring women to that decision and I find it incredibly arrogant that some people want to take away that option across the board.
Abortion won't go away simply by being illegal or inaccessible. As I've been reading more, I find my feelings intensifying.
I dislike how both pro-life and pro-choice rhetoric victimizes women: Pro-life groups portray women as victims of their abortions "abortions hurt women" ; pro-choice groups portray women as victims of their pregnancies and of the lack of access to abortion.
Is there a way to talk about abortion without casting women as victims? The hypocrisy of many pro-life arguments, which glorify motherhood by wishing all women to become mothers, however unwilling yet do nothing to actually support mothers or babies, incenses me. Not the hateful rhetoric that values an embryo more than the woman whose body carries it.
Overall, I find the North American obsession with abortion puzzling and troubling. It distracts people from more pressing issues. It's focused on symptoms, not on underlying problems. It's like nit-picking over whether or not a bandaid is the right shape while the patient is hemorrhaging to death.
Iknow that discussing abortion will bring out the crazies, but I had to get this out. I cherish my children and my babies. I love being pregnant and giving birth.
I can't remember the title but it was really interesting. Any more recommend readings on this topic? Keep it civil and on-topic otherwise I will employ the Almighty Delete Button. But the challenges are immense:Amazing Stories of Life After Death Jim Anderson: Heaven Can Wait.
