Have you seen this page? This woman took pictures of her abortion and it’s literally what you described.
Anti-choicers treat abortion as if it’s anything other than just a mere medical procedure that’s necessary for many people. They act like we promote that shit through television and YouTube commercials. Like there are billboards specifically going, “Go get an abortion! Two for one deal this week!”
The only kind of promotions or billboards I tend to see that’s even relevant to this issue usually are from anti-choicers, spreading misinformation and general propaganda.
I’m gonna lay some troofs down for you all:
Basically any “aborted baby” picture you see is fake or otherwise untrustworthy for a number of reasons.
- It’s photoshopped.
- It’s actually a miscarriage or even a stillborn child.
- It’s stolen property (seriously, anti-choicers LOVE stealing people’s and doctor’s photos of pregnancy and childbirth hardship, isn’t that gross?).
- If it is an ACTUAL abortion, it’s likely a late-term abortion which are super rare not really because of laws (like they think) but because by the time a human appendage or shape can be distinguished amongst abortion debris, these people have been pregnant for a while and almost always really wanted that child but were forced into abortion because of medical issues (such as fetal death or uterine collapse or other extremely emotionally and physically painful problems), which means, yes, they’ve essentially stolen a picture of someone’s failed pregnancy, not willfully and gleefully mutilated baby, which probably caused them a huge ass heartache to have to go through, enough that many people wind up with trauma and may not be willing to try again for a child. Good job, assholes.
And basically all those points prove that they don’t see people who can get pregnant or even fetuses as actual people but mere objects to fuel their agenda about controlling women’s lives, and by proxy anyone else with a uterus.
