‘What about adoption?’
“If women do not want a child then why not have it adopted? There are people crying out for children to adopt in this country. They are even going abroad to try to get them, yet we have people going to England to have an abortion. The stigma of having a child out of wedlock is long gone so why not give the child a chance at life? There is also the fact that while the woman may not want the child what about the rights of the father? Does he have any say in the matter? How long will it be before an injunction is taken out by a man to stop a woman aborting a child that he fathered? Now that will really put the cat among the pigeons.”
‘They should have it adopted if they don’t want it.’
Avast people, behold the logics. These are some of the comments queefed out in relation to the X-Case being discussed, tired tedious arguments are taken down from high moral shelves, dusted off and sent fort, on a sea of stupid.
The what about adoption trope is an age-old gambit by those who don’t even understand the concept of ‘unwanted pregnancy’. Women are fickle-minded hussies see, they don’t know their own minds, let alone their own bodies. Pregnant women are the avowed property of real people, fetuses, the religious, men, childless couples. At no point can they– selsfishly– make a decision what to do with their own bodies when lofty noble idea abound about what they SHOULD do if they still want to be regarded as people.
By fuck, NOTHING annoys me more than the ‘they should give it up for adoption’ as though carrying a fetus to term, going through labour, then handing it off to strangers was some kind of cake walk. As to the twat who thinks men should take out an injunction to remind women that their bodies are not their own, well…what can anyone say to tautology of this kind.
Except- Women are NOT incubators for the childless!
Seriously, if you want to be taken seriously, drop the fucking adoption fairytale. Unwanted pregnancy is not about the Disney end, but all about the dark lonely journey into Mordor. It’s a journey women make, women, women WOMEN.
