Women Arent The Only People Who Get Abortions

Yes, yes they are.


Jack Qu’emi Gutiérrez was a 20-year-old college student in a self-described “shitty relationship” when they found out they were pregnant.

It was 2011 and Gutiérrez, a nonbinary person who uses the pronouns they/them, had to pool all their money at the time to pay the $500 to get the abortion pill. Even though Gutiérrez chose to have a medication abortion (“I didn’t want a bunch of people in my crotch”), they were still forced to undergo two trans-vaginal ultrasounds before obtaining the abortion pill.

“I felt very, very much alone,” Gutiérrez told HuffPost. “I didn’t have any frame of reference for what an abortion would be like, period. Not to mention what an abortion would be like as a nonbinary person.”

Although Gutiérrez went to Planned Parenthood, they were constantly misgendered and there was no option for preferred pronouns or name on the intake form.

“I got called ‘Miss’ and ‘Ma’am’ all the time,” they said. “And was super sweet to me, but I was too terrified to really sit down and have a conversation and say, ‘Hey, my pronouns are this and my identity is this, could you stop doing that?’ I was too busy going, ‘Holy shit, I’m in a clinic and I don’t know what to expect.’” (Planned Parenthood now offers preferred pronouns and gender identity options on their intake forms.)

...."Make no mistake: The abortion bans are absolutely an attack on cis women. It’s part of a larger war on women that’s been raging for decades, and it’s deeply rooted in misogyny and sexism. But these bans also affect transgender, intersex and other gender-nonconforming people."

...Read the whole thing...or, try to anyway

12. yes they do.

It really is too bad your whole fairy tale isn't real.
Just so when you have to explain yourself to Jesus you can find out that just believing wasn't enough.
It isn't a get out of hell free card.

Treating people like shit and hating everything that doesn't fit into your box wouldn't go over too well with the big guy. Especislly after he told you to treat everyone as you would treat him.

If only it was real.

And you deny it anyway.
So much hatred from you in almost every thread.

It really is too bad hell isn't real.

17. hate hate hate.

It's all you got.

Try reading your bible some more.
Particularly the parts where Jesus explains how to treat other people.

He's wouldn't appreciate you pretending to be a follower of his when you can't follow simple instructions and defy his commands every single day. Once is OK. You can repent and be forgiven, but every day? He wouldn't like that. It says so right in your bible.

Too bad hell isn't real.

19. nope. That's not projection.

Nice try though.

Fact is that I would be more of a Christian in jesus' eyes than you would.

I don't hate people.
I don't call Christians freaks and mentally ill.
You call people those things.
Then you project by calling people bigots because they make fun of your fairy tales.
right after you called gays "freaks".
Self-awareness is lost on you I understand that.
Jesus wouldn't like what you do though, that's also a fact.
it says so right in the bible.

27. well its one or the other.

I'd imagine harassing a dying man would he easier. After all. He's gonna be dead.
Surely would be tough to explain to old Jesus though.
He's not going to like that too much.

29. Then again. I'd probably be wondering if the dying man I harassed had friends.

Friends with a lot of patience.
Friends with a lot of time to figure things out.
That would probably bother me more than getting spanked on the Internet.



Edit..
Da mannnnnn considers this a threat.

Don't worry da mannnnnn.. I don't give a fuck about you.

I don't know the dying man you harassed or you.
I really don't give a fuck who you are either.

Maybe it doesn't bother you because you are inherently evil, but it would bother me knowing I harassed a dying man.

At least I can go to my grave knowing I've never done that.

I won't delete it because I wasn't threatening you, but I'll apologize because I could have come off that way.
I don't have a vendetta against you or anybody here.
So I'm sorry that I came off that way.

Sorry to bust that person's bubble, but FEMALES are the only humans that can be pregnant...There is no such thing as a pregnant MAN.

And it's a sad day when that person is more concerned about being called ma'am than the fact that she is ending a life in utero.

37. Can someone please explain this post on DU? I was under the impression that the expression...

..."transgender woman" refers to an individual who is biologically male but identifies with a feminine gender. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but unless I am mistaken it would be biologically impossible for such an individual to become pregnant.

So, here it is: https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142327921#post9

Is that just some kind of odd slip of the tongue, or is the person who posted it a wry troll, or what?

TIA
