the science behind abortion

Source article

It’s not very often that we find anything dealing with abortion that isn’t emotionally, politically or religiously charged, which to some degree is understandable. It’s a touchy subject, with as many voices as there are mouths (even those mouths that really don’t have a clue what they’re saying.) This comic from Oh Joy Sex Toy takes a medical approach to what is in reality one of the safest medical produces we have today, giving an outline of what women who are considering an abortion are looking at going through with actual resources for further research.

pastor wants women to shut up in church and quit being whores

These articles are very short reads, coupled with footage from several rather conservative sermons this guy has given. Both the writer and the readers are justifiably outraged about his comments and the understanding of women and their “placement” that he demonstrates. It’s hard to swallow religious crazy.

But while most of the outrage seems to be over the fact that he’s talking about this super old-fashioned and extremely limiting understanding of women, my disgust is directed in a different direction. What he’s saying, he’s pulling from the bible, the actual holy book of Christianity. Yes, it sounds boorish, stupid and downright sexist. Guess what? That’s the holy book that any self-identifying Christian is upholding. And if you’re going to pick and chose which parts you want to follow, doesn’t that kind of eliminate the whole, “God wrote this book so it’s holy” thing?

This is a huge part of why I left Christianity as a teenager. This guy is a misogynistic jerk, but then so is the supposed god he gets his information from.

an understanding of our world

Over the past few months I’ve been collecting headlines and images dealing with women – our bodies, our rights, how influential people talk about us, etc, etc. This is just a small sampling, but that doesn’t make any of these items less horrid. Take a look. Judge for yourself whether or not there’s a war on women.
