New poll shows that “pro-life” movement more about oppressing women than protecting the unborn.

Could have knocked me over with a feather.

Courtesy of The Guardian:

According to self-identified “pro-life” advocates, the fundamental divide between those who want to outlaw abortion and those who want to keep it legal comes down to one question: when does life begin? Anti-abortion advocacy pushes the view that life begins at conception; the name of their movement carefully centers the conceit that opposition to abortion rights is simply about wanting to save human lives.

A new poll shows that’s a lie. The “pro-life” movement is fundamentally about misogyny.

A Supermajority/PerryUndem survey released this week divides respondents by their position on abortion, and then tracks their answers to 10 questions on gender equality more generally. On every question, anti-abortion voters were significantly more hostile to gender equity than pro-choice voters.

Do men make better political leaders than women? More than half of anti-abortion voters agreed. Do you want there to be equal numbers of men and women in positions of power in America? Fewer than half of abortion opponents said yes – compared with 80% of pro-choicers, who said they want women to share in power equally.

Anti-abortion voters don’t like the #MeToo movement. They don’t think the lack of women in positions of power impacts women’s equality. They don’t think access to birth control impacts women’s equality. They don’t think the way women are treated in society is an important issue in the 2020 election.

They don’t believe sexism is a problem, and they’re hostile to women’s rights. Pro-lifers are sexists in denial – yes, the women too
In other words, they don’t believe sexism is a problem, and they’re hostile to women’s rights. Pro-lifers are sexists in denial – yes, the women too.

Go ahead, act like this is a surprise. 

I think most of us have known for decades that the so called “pro-life” movement is really an anti-women movement.

That is why none of their phony compassion extends to providing care for the children once they are born, or providing support for mothers who have given birth without the means to care for themselves much less their newborn infants. 

A true pro-life movemnt would focus on those who are already living instead of a bundle of cells that may or may not someday be a human being. 

As long as I live I will never understand how women are convinced to particiapte in this draconian oppression of their sisters. 

But I do know that it would never happen without the help of religion.

    GOP chair complains CNN should give even more time to ‘pro-Trump contributors’

    Look at the ‘contributors’

    ….Both men had their absences coincide with instances of bigotry and dishonesty that echo the brand of politics practiced by Trump.

    Ferguson’s Facebook page was recently exposed for promoting religious hate, made-up stories, and fabricated quotes.

    “CNN political commentator Ben Ferguson regularly uses his Facebook page to post memes with false information and fabricated quotes, including an image with a made-up Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) quote that was used to portray her as stupid,” Media Matters for America reported in March.

    Ferguson’s page claimed Islam “sends out people from PRAYER in church to kill people and burn down buildings” and published a meme of black people in Ferguson, Missouri, with the caption, “Looting: when free food, housing, phones, healthcare & education aren’t enough.”

    Cortes recently narrated a video for the conservative online operation PragerU called “The Charlottesville Hoax,” which tried to make the case that Trump did not praise Nazis after the white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

    It is BECAUSE of the misunderstanding and mistranslation of religion.

    Their line of thought is that when conception occurs the human is responsible for 9 months, for gestating “gods gift”, so the human is sinning by not fulfilling the amniotic duty.

    And at birth, the child is now 100% in the hands of a “god” who is found elsewhere, and that guns and global warming and everything in between is a big denial of “oh well”, because earth has been reduced (and separated) to a battleground, a “holding area” until Jesus is met at some pearly gates.

    Wholesale Fucked Up and Ignorant as Fucking Fuck.

    I hate saying this, and I know this is crass, but the woman center in the photo above has very little to worry about when it comes to getting pregnant.

      Not so quick. She’s probably an 8 or a 9 in her red district. And her brothers and dad get horny after reading some bible verses.
