Whether you want to believe it or not you are ending your child’s life. There are always other options.

Don’t want your rapists baby when you’re an unemployed suicidal teenager?
Then have an invasive, risky procedure that will prevent you from ever having children ever again when you later decide you want to!
Don’t ever want children? Well then, I hope you can find a doctor that will perform a sterilization despite all of them insisting you’ll change your mind and refusing this procedure to you unless you’re both over 30, have 2 children already AND get your husband’s consent!
Can’t currently afford a pregnancy that costs thousands of dollars because you happen to be unable to find a steady job? You’re now NEVER allowed children EVER again because you have a temporary situation that makes it impossible to currently carry a pregnancy to term! Oh, and you have to shell out about $10,000 or so too, because you can OBVIOUSLY afford that in one go when you can barely scrape together $350 for an abortion!
Are you twelve and being raped repeatedly and just can’t be pregnant off your older relative and abuser? Hope you never heal and decide you want children later in life, you should just have your uterus cut out instead!
Like do you honestly have no concept of how fucking ridiculous you sound right now?

I think it’s noteworthy that antichoicers would never, ever suggest that amab people who want to prevent abortion should get vasectomies, even though they’re far less invasive, it’s easier to find a doctor who will do it, and can be reversible. Because everything is always the afab person’s fault and fuck them for enjoying sex, right? - Rachel

Actually vasectomies are considered to be sterilization or permanent birth control and not reversible.

Nope.
And even if you were correct, it’s still a much less invasive and risky procedure than a fucking hysterectomy. - Rachel

This is what I ran into.  I’ve got endometriosis, the worst the gynecologist who diagnosed me had ever seen in his 30 years of practice.  It made my menstrual cycles so erratic and unbearable that it was affecting my ability to go to class, work a steady job, just basically function fully in society.  Birth control pills helped regulate my cycle so I could at least plan ahead and control it a bit, but the only permanent solution was a hysterectomy.  At the age of 25, I tried to get him to do that for me.  He refused.  Did everything in his power to talk me out of it.  Said maybe if I had my parents’ permission (I was 25! Using my own insurance, etc), what if I wanted kids some day… blah, blah, blah.  
He ended up agreeing to do two (two!) laparoscopic surgeries that were more expensive, less effective, and would need to be done again eventually, just to preserve my ability to have children some day.  This coming from the same guy who warned me that if I was pregnant, I’d have greater odds of dying from complications than carrying to term because my condition was that bad. 
He said that when I get married (I was dating a girl at the time!) if my husband said it was okay, he’d do the hysterectomy.
My imaginary future’s husband’s claim to my uterus and my ability to produce his imaginary progeny in spite of the danger it posed to my life was more important than my current very real suffering and ability to live a normal life.
And here’s the kicker.  I’m 30 now, I obviously don’t see this guy anymore, but I also haven’t been able to find another gynecologist in my area who takes my insurance who sees me as a person, and not just as a potential baby incubator.
I had a cousin who had the same problem.  She ended up having an ‘oops miracle’ baby, nearly dying in the process (she has a myriad of chronic conditions now form the pregnancy and birth) and then the doctor gave her the hysterectomy she’d needed, again, only with her husband’s permission.


It does go both ways, though no where near as bad-our family doctor won’t refer my fiancé to get a vasectomy (even though we have two kids and that is all we want) until he is 30.

Anonymous asked: "a kid sees that and automatically asks a million “why’s” No, they ask one "why" (if they even need to ask at all because plenty of them know already), and all you have to say to them is "They're feeding their baby, some people use bottles, others breastfeed". That's the end of it. It's not something beyond their comprehension. I never asked anything about breastfeeding because I actually remember being breastfed.

You’re ridiculous, it should not be allowed in public view. Period.

Have you even ever been around children? The way you talk sounds like you haven’t. The “why’s” are even a stage kids go through. When you explain something to them they’re always gonna ask why and then ask why again to that response. Kids are curious.

"Why does that lady have her boob out?" "She’s feeding her baby, that’s what those are for" "Oh, ok."


Literally what would happen.

Not really, but you believe whatever you want.

Have you been around children?

No, but really… I have had this exact conversation with my nephew and with the two children I care for other than my own daughter. I’ve seen similar things play out at the park between other mothers and curious children. Kids don’t care. They’re curious and they move on when they’ve been sufficiently answered unless the adults involved make a big deal out of it.

Also, you and your fiancé’s views on morality and modesty are fine for you to uphold for yourselves. No one is obliged to agree with you and no one has to do anything simply because you disagree with them. The law is on the side of the breast feeding mother in most cases, and you being disgusted doesn’t change that.

Have I been around children? Yes, I have. I see and take care of my 6 nieces and nephews on a regular basis AND I’ve volunteered and done my internship in a preschool classroom. Also, I’m in college to become a teacher. So I think I know what I’m talking about because I’ve studied early childhood.

Just because you’ve encountered a few kids here and there at the park (and c’mon really at the park?! Those kids are more worried about playing so of course after giving them a short explanation they’re gonna move on to other things.) doesn’t mean that every child is gonna be satisfied with the explanation. Most kids are gonna ask, “why” again and again.

Oh, sweetie. I worked in a preschool for years prior to becoming a private nanny and having my own child. I went to school for ECE as well. Please don’t pretend like you are the end all to child development.

I am also not understanding why children asking “why” is a reason mothers shouldn’t nurse in public. Honestly, if you can’t answer questions like that then you are heading towards the wrong career path. Of course children ask “why” to everything and anything. You should answer them as truthfully as is appropriate for their age when it comes to any questions.

I’m not pretending like I’m “the end all to child development.”

I never said mothers shouldn’t nurse in public. I simply said cover up when you do.

And I simply said that if you want to cover up, go ahead. No one else is under any obligation to do so because that’s what you deem morally acceptable.

It’s public decency to cover up. You aren’t allowed to be nude or naked in any way in public, so you should have to cover up, because that is just being hypocritical to say, “well because your feeding a baby you can show your boob, but don’t walk in here without a shirt on because your boobs are showing.” Makes no sense.

Except having your breast out to nurse isn’t considered indecent nor is it enforced by law enforcement. This is your hang up. Get over it.

You see less boob when I breasted my child than on lingerie posters in shopping centres or even in some of the skimpy clothes ladies are wearing these days. Seriously, get over it.

Neither of which is right.

Have you seen me breastfeed? No, I thought not. Get over it.

Still working towards breaking in these shoes for the wedding. They have a bit of an odd shape for my long skinny feet, so it is taking a while! @pinupgirlclothing
