    Sexism and Abortion

    Why do certain people claim that pro-life people are being sexist? I can claim that abortion is sexist due to assuming that women are incapable of saying no to irresponsible choices. Yes, tthere are some tragic circumstances where the woman is a victim, but there is no need to violate her a second time to murder her baby! And I'm tired of abortion advocates acting like the woman's life will be over if her baby does not die. So much for all the charities out there that will help in crises pregnancies.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Ending abortion would save millions of female lives. Case closed.
    I want something good to die for to make it beautiful to live.

    In your case they are correct. For example you think "they" are violating her a second time when in fact she is the only one who can legally have an abortion.

    I'm saying that it would not actually help a rape victim to have stuff put in her to kill her baby.

    In a sense they are violating her by brainwashing her.

    There are countries where abortion is used to perpetrate extreme sexism against women. If a family learns that their unborn child is female, or if they have a newborn who turns out to be female, they will kill her rather than endure the shame of having a daughter.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    All of the women I know well are pro-life (wife, sisters, mom, in-laws, sisters-in-law, church friends). Either:

    1. they have all internalized misogyny (thanks, Patriarchy!), and help perpetuate oppression of women through their ill-conceived and sexist opposition to abortion, or
    2. being pro-life isn't sexist.

    Put like that, I can totally see why "pro-life" = "anti-women."
