First it was the Octuplet story that got my blood a’boilin. Although I didn’t post about it here, most of you know how I felt about that circus via comments to others blogs. That doctor should have his license pulled, and the media given a slap on the hand for their reporting of the story. I didn’t feel so much anger for Ms. Suleman, but rather feeling angry that others didn’t put the breaks on her ill-conceived (no pun intended) plans.
Oh, hold me back. I just finished reading a post on Mom Logic that sent me over the edge. In fact, it so made me angry that I had to sleep on this post otherwise you all would be trying to decipher my comments between a litany of four-letter words. Not to say I won’t use a few here, so be forewarned…
GINA (guest blogger), bless her heart, is probably the meanest Pro-Life advocate to ever walk the earth.
I respect women’s right to choose, but I have little tolerance for pro-choicers
who expect sympathy when they have a miscarriage.
Oh really, Gina?
If you believe that pregnancy doesn’t produce a baby until some magic
number (13 weeks? 20 weeks? 40?), then you must also agree that it’s ridiculous
to break down in hysterics, set up a memorial website for your “angel,” and seek
out a grief counselor when you start bleeding in your first trimester. After
all, you’re simply talking about the loss of a conglomeration of microscopic
cells, right?! That’s hardly something to cry about.
Oh, no, please SAY YOU DID NOT GO THERE Gina…
Advocate all you want, but don’t come crying to me when your hypocrisy hits
you like a ton of bricks. If you are going to defend the right to abort babies,
you don’t have the right to be upset when yours dies.
Ok, now I’m pissed. Are you fucking saying that I deserved five miscarriages????
First, before I go all nuclear on Gina’s ass… let me say a few things so you all know where I am coming from:
I am Pro-Choice. I do not dislike people who are Pro-Life. In fact, I have respect for anyone who can stand by a belief. Our views are uniquely our own, and we have the right to defend them.
However…. BEING Pro-Choice DOES NOT mean someone is PRO-ABORTION!
Pro-Choice means I don’t want the government in my fucking business. It has nothing to do with abortion. Two totally different things, Gina.
Gina, have you ever had a loss? Something tells me that you haven’t. It is a soul-crushing event. And regardless of political views, I have empathy and compassion for ANYONE that experiences a loss. The fact that you DON’T tells me one thing… you are a very misguided and evil woman. Actually, you might even be a man for all I know. I just can’t fathom someone writing such bullshit.
And, Mom Logic, despite your “disclaimer” at the beginning of the post, I am disappointed in you as a website. Clearly, there is a line where free speech crosses into hurtful vitriol. Something tells me that Gina being let loose is merely a tactic for page hits. Shameful.
Last, Gina, a few parting words… You may think my views are wrong, but at the heart of it, I am Mom and an Infertile. I have a living, beautiful son. I have had FIVE dead babies, each which I mourned and cried for. I have compassion. Therefore, I respectfully disagree with your rant, and hope that YOU NEVER experience a loss. Maybe then you will change your tune and not be so goddamn ignorant.
Gina, you have taken on a portion of the Internet that is much more unforgiving than I.
You better be ready for the backlash. You’ll finally get your 15 minutes of fame I know you’ve been waiting for all your life.
And it ain’t gonna be pretty.
