I recently got called anti-choice (again), or rather was asked whether I am “anti-choice” and whether that’s an official stance of the place I work.
Got me thinking: Thanks for asking, why yes! I am! For this one choice, it should be abundantly clear over five years of blogging (how did that happen…I digress) that I am anti “the abortion choice,” which loosely translates into killing your child. When we put it that way, no one would ask.
People who opt for “fetus fetishist” as their chosen slur have a hard road to travel because it’s a) hard to say and b) makes them sound crazy.
But anti-choice? Yes, and proud of it.
Faye adds: In our culture we seem to value “choice”, regarding anything really, above everything else. Let’s not evaluate or assess the morality or consequences of a given choice, let’s just value “choice” in and of itself.
I’m anti-choice on abortion. But I’m pro-choice on a whole host of issues. People should be free to determine where they live, work, play, etc. But some choices are wrong. Like whether or not to kill a human being.by
