So true, sir, so true.
I like this quote because it really boils down the abortion debate to what is the underlying issue. Most pro-lifers are men, especially the pro-lifers that are also politicians. And the abortion debate is heavily founded on misgoyny, specifically towards cis women. The problem cis male pro-lifers have with the abortion debate is that they hate women whether they realize it or not and they hate that women have the ability to control whether or not they will be the vessel for THEIR sperm and THEIR children.
(I used women here because the misogyny of pro-lifers is specifically aimed at cis women [mostly because most pro-lifers do not recognize that there are other genders] and the increased equality and empowerment that cis women have gained in the past 100 years. Pro-lifers resent that cis women have the ability to make a choice that they do not and they resent the control this gives cis women over them.)(via rabbleprochoice)
