Dear Pro-Abort and Planned Parenthood Feminists:
Congratulations on remaining one of the top trending topics on virtually every social media network in the country for the last several weeks. That’s a rather astonishing feat. But I guess when you’re supporting or engaging in the mass slaughter of innocent children, harvesting and selling their organs for profit and repeatedly lying to the national media, it’s bound to hold everyone’s attention. The latest Apple gadgets and the discovery of water on Mars really have nothing on you. I suppose you’re rather proud of this. That’s actually sort of nauseating, but sadly, not surprising.
I wish I could say that I’m done writing and venting about your sick support of this evil, depraved, morally-bankrupt organization. After all, this is my third piece in back-to-back posts dealing with some aspect of your psychotic and genocidal actions. Of course, those of you who are not working directly for Planned Parenthood’s infanticidal abortion mills are busy pelting Republican presidential candidates with condoms and other various sexual contraceptives — and apparently getting paid to do it. How wonderfully tolerant of you. But, honestly, as long as Planned Parenthood continues to wipe out over 300,000 innocent human lives per year, and as long as there is breath in my body, I will continue to do what I can with my little corner of the Internet to denounce your criminal, murderous actions.
Since publishing my last two posts, a lot of you have been trolling me on Twitter, scolding me for daring to voice my opinion on what you’ve decided is a “women’s only health” and “women’s rights” issue. My e-mail inbox has been inundated with what can only be described as vicious hate-mail:
“Josh, just looking at your profile photos on Twitter and Facebook, I’m assuming you don’t have a vagina. Maybe you should just shut up.” _
“You have no right to say what women can and cannot to with their bodies.”
“You’re obviously an idiot and a rightwing Christian male who desperately needs to be educated on medical terminology, science and case law.”
“Are you able to get pregnant? Didn’t think so. Go away please.”
After the #ShoutYourAbortion hashtag went viral, it was all I could do to avoid being brutally lambasted by all of you. For some unholy reason, the very notion that a man might not agree with a woman bragging about her abortion was wildly controversial. Imagine that: Men might have opinions on boasting about the termination of a human life. Controversial, indeed.
I realize that this is just your natural, poorly-thought-out, knee jerk reaction when confronted with an opinion that contradicts your own. (Again, quite tolerant.) I realize that any man who dares to condemn the Satanic death-cult of abortion is instantly labeled a sexist, misogynistic jerk. You know, because the decision to murder a child in or out of the womb should really be left up to women, right? After all, you're the ones who have to endure pregnancy and the pain of childbirth. So, you should be able to freely and legally consent to the senseless slaughter of your children, while we men just stand back and keep our mouths shut. Right?
Well, maybe not so much.
I think that in the midst of Planned Parenthood’s ongoing infanticidal destruction of innocent human lives, it’s important to remember that the abortion debate — which is being discussed now more than ever — is not solely a “women’s issue.” It is not, nor has it ever been, just about women. Here are a few things I would like to point out.
1.) MEN ARE ABORTED TOO.
This is an important point. One reason that men should be allowed to have a say in the abortion debate is because baby boys are aborted too. Your organization murders roughly 438 unborn baby girls per day and 460 unborn baby boys. Following the CDC’s math from the 2013 fiscal year, this comes out to about 159,895 girls and 167,758 boys in one year alone. To put those numbers in perspective for you, consider this: During the Vietnam War, the United States suffered 58,220 fatal military causalities, according to the historical National Archives. This means that Planned Parenthood’s one-year abortion of 327,653 babies is about 5.6 times greater than the U.S. casualties suffered in Vietnam.
Let’s be clear: abortion is a human rights issue, not a “women’s only health issue.” Just ask this boy, who survived an abortion with only a deformed left arm, if his opinion on the matter is meaningless just because he doesn’t have ovaries or a fallopian tube. For God’s sake, he actually has first hand experience. Tell Josiah that it is wrong for him to speak against the cause of his suffering. Tell him that he is irrelevant in this debate simply because he’s not a woman. After all, this is the sort of logic you espouse, right? What you’re forgetting, or intentionally ignoring, is that men and women hold in common the wondrous and beautiful distinction of being human. And the threat of abortion does not discriminate against gender. Abortion affects human beings: men and women alike. Period.
2.) FATHERS OFTEN BEAR THE WEIGHT OF GRIEF, GUILT OR EMOTIONAL CONFUSION.
Another phrase I hear from you ladies all the time is: “This is between a woman and her doctor.” Really? I mean, the last time I checked, it takes a man and a woman to create a baby. Your implication here is that the only two people who will be dealing with the process and resulting consequences of the abortion are the doctor and the mother. This is nonsensical and it completely ignores the fact that abortions can and often do have long-term effects on the father — whether the couple is married, dating or plans to stay together or not.
Several years ago, Esquire magazine interviewed 12 men who had experienced firsthand the emotional scars that abortion often leaves. Some of the men agreed to the abortions and some did not. Some of them pressured their wives or girlfriends to have the abortion and now regret that decision. Here are a few excerpts:
It’s her body, but I had her brainwashed. I made all the decisions. Once it was over, we never talked about it again. We kept our mouths shut. She did have some real prophetic words though. She said, “Wagner, you’re going to regret this all your life.” I told her, “No, no.” But inside me, something would spark and cling to that. She was right. I’ll never forget it. I’ll never forgive myself.”
Here’s one from a married man:
We tried to figure out why we weren’t getting along so well. It occurred to one of us that it was a year since the abortion. The first time we realized that we felt we had killed something that we had made together and that it would have been alive and might have been our child…We talked and shared how disturbed about it we both had been…We hadn’t known that we were angry and upset and hadn’t been willing to face the facts.”
Another from a man who reluctantly agreed to an abortion:
I’ve got to think of the pain and the damage it did to her, because I know about the pain that it does to me, and it wasn’t my decision. I was part of the cause and I certainly didn’t resist in any way. I can’t help but think, am I guilty of being an accomplice in the taking of a life, or at least in not bringing it to fruition? There’s guilt, but more than anything, there’s just sadness.”
Mark Baker, “Men on Abortion,” Esquire, March 1990, 114-25.
Men are more connected and involved to the abortion debate than you think.
3.) IF YOU WANT MEN OUT OF THE ABORTION DEBATE, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT ON BOTH SIDES.
Fair is fair, ladies. Most abortion doctors are men, most pro-choice politicians are congressmen and countless women are pressured by men to have abortions. The irony is that, while you claim men shouldn’t speak their mind on abortion, you spew so-called “scientific facts” from various male medical authorities like Dr. Alan Guttmacher. You allow men to perform your abortion operations. You don’t mind that the Supreme Court that legalized abortion in 1973 was an all-male court. And you don’t have any problems donating ridiculous amounts of cash to pro-choice male politicians like Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.
But, of course, the minute a pro-life male speaks up, he’s sexist. You can’t have it both ways. If you want to eliminate men from this discussion, you’re going to have to do it on both sides. But, I know you won’t do that. Check your liberal hypocrisy, ladies.
4.) PEOPLE CAN AND SHOULD MAKE MORAL JUDGEMENTS ABOUT SOME THINGS WITHOUT HAVING FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE OR EXPERIENCE.
This is one of those points that I honestly can’t even believe I have to explain. But, since you’re so determined to blast men for daring to question the ethicality of abortion simply because they are not women, it seems you need a little reminder: If I am right about abortion being morally and ethically wrong (and I am), it is not because I am a man. It’s because I am passionately and actively opposed to killing unborn human beings. It's because I've done my research. It's because I know the truth. Moreover, there are countless women opposed to abortion as well. There are countless women who regret their abortions. And there are countless women who agree that abortion is a human right’s issue. Of course, you conveniently ignore all of this. Your argument is increasingly invalid, irrational and unsubstantiated.
I don’t need to shoot someone in the face to know that murder is wrong. I don’t need to beat a little boy with a baseball bat to know that child abuse is evil. I’ve never set someone’s house on fire, but I’m fairly certain that arson is a hateful, vengeful, vile and disgusting thing to do. These actions are not only illegal, but immoral — although plenty of murderers, child abusers and arsonists would argue that their actions were morally justified, just as you pro-abortion feminists desperately try to justify the slaughter of unborn children.
So, if you’re going to say that the morality or immorality of abortion should be a gender-specific debate, you’re going to have to apply that [fallible] logic to everything else. Take sex-slavery for instance. This is a problem largely perpetuated around the globe by men. But, this doesn’t mean that men are the only ones who can be outraged over sex slavery. Obviously, there are differences between the two, but the basic principle remains the same. The vast majority of sex slave victims are women, so naturally women have every right to protest it. (And they should.) Similarly, many male babies — who would have gone on to become adult men — are the victims of abortion. Pro-life men have every right and reason to object to and opine on abortion.
Now, there’s even an even deeper argument to be had here and one that I know will probably wind up in the comment thread or somewhere on social media. So let’s just address it now. You’re probably thinking something like this: ‘But, Josh, the victims of murder, physical abuse and arson are consciously aware of the effects of the injustices and wrongs that they have suffered. An unborn child is not aware of what is happening during an abortion procedure.” [Well, of course not, seeing as how the child’s brain is sucked out through a tube.]
If you’re going to start down that road though, you’ve got a real problem and here’s why: You are essentially arguing that something is only wrong if the person being wronged is actively aware of the injustice. By this logic, I could walk into a hospital and kill a coma patient and it be deemed morally acceptable because he would be unconscious and unaware of his own death, right? Or knock a woman unconscious with a crowbar and then shoot her in the chest? Or drug my friend up with sleeping pills and then throw him over a cliff?
Do you see where this would lead?
For all of your accusations of sexism, you are truly some of the most sexist and hypocritical people on the face of the Earth for condemning men for having the slightest opinion on the mass killing of unborn children in and out of the womb. Then again, if you don’t believe that abortion is murder, I guess I really have no chance at getting through to you about much of anything. The truth is: You wouldn’t listen to any opposing opinion or any shred of real science, whether it came from a man, a woman, a three-headed alien from the planet Xenon or from God Himself.
That’s what’s really disturbing in all of this. Your unapologetic hostility toward Truth.
Maybe you should start by addressing that, before telling men to shut up.
Another average sexist, misogynistic, uneducated man
