i have a lot things i’d like to say about this video but i don’t know how to say them, but i’ll try. to start, you need to get this straight, women should and will have the majority of the say in whether or not they choose to keep their baby because they’re the one who has to carry it around for 9 months. Second, you may not agree with abortions but your tax dollars do not automatically give you a say in whether or not a woman has a right to get an abortion. Yes you can voice your opinion but for the most part it isn’t a well informed or very correct one. Speaking of incorrect, what the fuck is fucking wrong with you holy shit, did your really just say that a woman doesn’t have a right to her fucking body.Please explain to me what the right to my own body, the only thing i will ever have that is completely and totally mine, is not a right i have absolutely. Also, i just fucking love that your proof of this statement is that we as a society prove it when we tell people not to hurt themselves. THERE IS A DISTINCT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALLOWING SOMEONE TO DO WHAT EVER THE FUCK THEY WANT WITH THEIR BODY AND WANTING SOMEONE YOU LOVE OR CARE ABOUT TO NOT HURT THEMSELVES. Let me try to explain this. People have the right to do what ever they want with their bodies, including choose to remove a fetus that may end up causing their life and the life a child the pregnancy could result in, to end up a poor and torturous one. Cutting, starving, and harming yourself in any way are all signs and factors that have to do with mental illness. I’m going to assume, since you’re using those as exceptions to people’s rights to their bodies, that you don’t understand the way those illnesses work. I’m not entirely education on the mental factors of bulimia and anorexia but i can explain self harm as i have myself struggled and watched my friends struggle with it. First, it is a relief factor, it helps people to feel better, because it releases dopamine, the chemical in your brain that makes you feel better. When you fall and get hurt, or cut yourself while you’re chopping vegetables, your body releases dopamine to help cope with the pain you’ve inflicted on your nerve cells. When someone cuts themselves, snaps a rubber band against their arm, or burns a lighter on their wrist or anything else they do to hurt themselves, they release the same drug in their brains. And just like snorting cocaine and getting high, the same thing happens and you end up getting addicted to the chemical release. Harming becomes something you don’t only do to cope any more, you do it to feel. You won’t understand it just as you won’t understand having fetus growing inside you. You can’t tell us that people don’t have a full right over their body because we don’t want them to hurt themselves. If someone has cancer, we try to treat it, so if someone has an illness like the need to stop eating to lose weight they don’t have, we try to treat it. We don’t just tell them to “stop starving” or “stop cutting” we try to get them help, understand why they feel the need to do those things. There’s something wrong if you are hurting yourself or harming your body in the same way there’s something wrong, in the same way there’s something wrong if you’ve got the stomach bug. But getting an abortion is the same thing as getting a tumor removed. Did you know that sometimes tumors have teeth and hair or even tiny bones in them, because they could have been an unborn fetus. People get those removed all the time. but when it comes to something that actually resulted in a uterus, well then i guess we have to stop the fucking presses don’t we. A fetus is literally a bunch of fucking cells, if we treated everything the way some treated fucking fetuses we’d refuse to clip our fingernails or cut our hair. There’s other things i could say but i’m done. please feel free to correct anything i’ve said that is wrong or you don’t agree with.
i personally believe everyone is entitled to their opinion but really, is an unhatched egg a chicken? no. i think that everyone is allowed to voice your own opinion all that matters to me is how you voice it and the context you describe it in.
I personally DO NOT believe everyone is entitled to their opinion if their opinion is that I should legally not be in control of my own body.
Though I don’t agree with that position, he definitely argues with a (sort of) polite and valid manner. This is better than most opinion videos I’ve seen
