The mainstream media has been
filled with reports lately recounting the story of a ten-year-old girl who was
“forced” to seek an abortion in another state, as her home state of Ohio
outlawed abortions after six weeks shortly after the Supreme Court overturned
Roe v. Wade. The reports note that Dr. Caitlin
Bernard, an Indianapolis obstetrician-gynecologist, then received a call from a
fellow doctor in Ohio that had a 10-year-old
patient in her office who was a little over six weeks pregnant. The Ohio doctor
wondered if Bernard could help. The stories on abominable outlets such as
msn.com made sure to note that Indiana was also “poised” to soon “further
restrict or ban abortion,” but that the 10-year-old girl in this case was going
to be the beneficiary of Bernard’s “care.”
The stories solemnly
stated that “The 10-year-old isn't alone” in seeking abortions across state lines.*
love of God, if a 10-year-old child is pregnant, the most serious
issue isn’t lack of abortion access! It is the stupefying societal decay that
leads to the possibility of this occurring. And the subsequent mainstream media
reports that fail to mention this, and, in fact, suggest that a ten-year-old
girl’s lack of quick and local access/support to kill her baby is
immoral! What kind of monster would impregnate a 10-year-old? Conversely, and I
don’t know the precise circumstances behind this particular instance, what kind
of society would lead a 10-year-old to think its okay to spread her legs and
let a boy/man inside of her?
media wants you to know that the lack of easy-peasy access to abortion is the
real—in fact the lone—problem here! Much as it wants—demands—that
you believe guns are the real reason that tens of thousands of people are shot
and/or murdered in the United States every year.
insists there is nothing wrong with our culture, unless you’re a “MAGA”
supporter, of course, but that goes without saying. So, yay, Hollywood! Yay,
BLM! Hooray for drag queens and early sexual education for kids! Pride parades
and public kink aren’t just for LGBTQers anymore! Kids—the younger the
better—should observe or take part, too! And remember kiddies…boys can be girls
and girls can be boys…or you can be both or neither! Or any of an infinite
number of other genders or combinations thereof. What fun! Also, “families” can
be composed of any number of living beings of any age, sex, species, gender
identity, or sexual orientation/expression. We love who we love, right? Of
course! You’d have to be a troglodyte Republican and a far-right Christian
extremist to believe otherwise!
is “care.” Abortion is “love.” If you don’t believe that you are an
and free abortion. They are one and the same, right?
price we pay.
