I’m not trying to preach my own opinions but hey, if there’s one issue I believe is pretty black and white when it comes to feminism is that
—you can not be pro-life and claim to be a feminist.
The reasoning behind that?
The core, the very root of feminism is the belief in women’s rights.
No matter if you believe that abortion is morally wrong, you should still uphold the choice if you claim to be a feminist because this supports the woman’s right to her own body.
Now, you could use this very same argument with advocating the legalization of prostitution
But you’ve got a lot of factors that you could argue against this, such as
—the rate of violence (both sexual and physical) towards prostitutes,
—rate of substance abuse within prostitution,
—whether or not buying/selling of bodies is modern-day human slavery,
—the statistics of women who are forced into prostitution vs by choice,
I’m not stating my own views here, I’m simply trying to show that if there is one issue that has to do with
a right to your own body
which has virtually no arguments against it
besides the issue of whether or not it is morally wrong is abortion.
Should your own personal viewpoints on what’s moral and what isn’t, be the sole reason against the choice of abortion for all women?
There are plenty of pro-life advocates that give a little leeway, including some viewpoints from the Vatican through out Catholic history.
Some women may believe that the act of abortion is wrong but it should be allowed in certain circumstances. Such as,
—if it’s during a very early stage in pregnancy
—if it’s due to rape/incest
—if it’s due to rape and the rapist is convicted
—if it would threaten the women’s life not to abort
Why should the choice only be there in certain situations? Does it change the fact that it’s still abortion? Not really. I call bullshit.
I call bullshit on any girl who bases her stance against abortion—an issue dealing with a woman’s right to her own body—with nothing more than their own moral views and then turns around and calls herself a feminist.
