So, about a month ago my grandma and I began talking all the time on Facebook. Eventually she told me about this thing that some friends of hers do called the Question of the Day. Essentially, you just post a status with its topic outlined and then a question.. for the day! Pretty simple, hm?
Well, there are no good memes for Wednesday. Blogging a ‘wordless’ picture sounds incredibly… not fun or bloggy whatsoever. And I’m not religious, so there’s no ‘word-filled’ Wednesday posts either. So instead, I’ve opted to create my own mini-meme (ahaha get it?) in which I write about a controversial QoD I’ve had. It may not necessarily be the question I do that day, as I do QoD’s every day – but these posts will always be posted on Wednesdays.
I came up with this (not only because there’s no good Wednesday memes) because it’s only been up for a couple of hours and already this particular question has gotten a lot of heat. I knew that it would in advance, of course, and that’s what makes it such a great QoD. Anyway, on with the question!
Today’s Question of the Day:
Pro-Life or Pro-Choice, and why?
I am pro-choice and before I get loads of hatemail comments, let me tell you why. People get raped. It happens. It is unpleasant, but it happens and there are times we can do nothing about it. Occasionally, these victims (and, yes, they are victims, they do not ASK for this to happen to them) are children or very young adults who are not able to handle their own life, much less be able to bring another child into the world.
Nobody can say it’s someone’s fault for getting raped, because it isn’t. Nobody asks to get raped. And you’re in no position to judge someone you’ve never met. Perhaps they’ve got a bad life, no support from parents or anyone else. Bringing a child into the world would only harm both the child and the mother.
And honestly… I could go on about this for awhile, but the basic point underlying everything is that each and every case is different but more importantly that it is a woman’s body and it ought to be a woman’s choice, not the choice of those around her.
