Have you ever wondered how many women are pro life who secretly have abortions? I’ve talked before about right wing women and how they have a peculiar form of gynocentric entitlement about them. They seem to think that the simple tasks of cooking and cleaning, or saying feminism is bad are sufficient in return for some beta provider slaving away to furnish her with the type of lifestyle most men would be called a lazy bum for having. At least feminists are upfront about their desire to exploit the male sex, right wing women for generations now have been polishing the crap out of the giant turd that are traditional gender roles, and they think that because most men have not noticed, that we (mgtow) have not. But an area in which right wing (specifically pro life) women display extreme hypocrisy is in the arena of reproductive rights for women.
Full disclosure, I am ardently pro-choice. I beleive that any human being should have complete control over their own reproduction, women included. While determining precisely what percentage of women are pro life and also getting abortions is very hard to do, an article I found titled The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion by feminist Joyce Arthur describes several pro life, anti abortion women who claimed that all abortion is murder, falling pregnant at inconvenient times and clandestinely scheduling abortions for themselves while still decrying other women for doing the same. I am of course no fan of feminists, but the following will illustrate exactly the point that I have set out to make numerous times on this blog… that is that female hypocrisy and mental gymnastics are by no means constrained to the realm of female feminism… it is instead generally a feminine trait to display such extreme lack of self awareness. take for instance this bit.
“I have done several abortions on women who have regularly picketed my clinics, including a 16 year old schoolgirl who came back to picket the day after her abortion, about three years ago. During her whole stay at the clinic, we felt that she was not quite right, but there were no real warning bells. She insisted that the abortion was her idea and assured us that all was OK. She went through the procedure very smoothly and was discharged with no problems. A quite routine operation. Next morning she was with her mother and several school mates in front of the clinic with the usual anti posters and chants. It appears that she got the abortion she needed and still displayed the appropriate anti views expected of her by her parents, teachers, and peers.” (Physician, Australia)
Of course men are quite capable of double think as well, no one denies this, but just read on some more…
“I’ve had several cases over the years in which the anti-abortion patient had rationalized in one way or another that her case was the only exception, but the one that really made an impression was the college senior who was the president of her campus Right-to-Life organization, meaning that she had worked very hard in that organization for several years. As I was completing her procedure, I asked what she planned to do about her high office in the RTL organization. Her response was a wide-eyed, ‘You’re not going to tell them, are you!?’ When assured that I was not, she breathed a sigh of relief, explaining how important that position was to her and how she wouldn’t want this to interfere with it.” (Physician, Texas)
Amazing, its like the televangelists that are caught having homosexual sex while making their careers condemning homos to the lake of fire. And another.
“In 1990, in the Boston area, Operation Rescue and other groups were regularly blockading the clinics, and many of us went every Saturday morning for months to help women and staff get in. As a result, we knew many of the ‘antis’ by face. One morning, a woman who had been a regular ‘sidewalk counselor’ went into the clinic with a young woman who looked like she was 16-17, and obviously her daughter. When the mother came out about an hour later, I had to go up and ask her if her daughter’s situation had caused her to change her mind. ‘I don’t expect you to understand my daughter’s situation!’ she angrily replied. The following Saturday, she was back, pleading with women entering the clinic not to ‘murder their babies.’” (Clinic escort, Massachusetts)
Thats right, who the hell are they to question her special snowflakes situation, it was of course, “different” for her daughter. The rest of women who have abortions aren’t making the responsible decision to opt out of parenthood in cases where they cannot afford to have children, no they are “murderers”, but she is not you see. This next one is a doozy.
“In 1973, after Roe v. Wade, abortion became legal but had to be performed in a hospital. That of course was changed later. For the first ‘legal abortion day’ I had scheduled five procedures. While scrubbing between cases, I was accosted by the Chief of the OB/Gyn service. He asked me, ‘How many children are you going to kill today?’ My response, out of anger, was a familiar vulgar retort. About three months later, this born-again Christian called me to explain that he was against abortion but his daughter was only a junior in high school and was too young to have a baby and he was also afraid that if she did have a baby she would not want to put it up for adoption. I told him he did not need to explain the situation to me. ‘All I need to know’, I said, ‘is that SHE wants an abortion.’ Two years later I performed a second abortion on her during her college break. She thanked me and pleaded, ‘Please don’t tell my dad, he is still anti-abortion.’” (Physician, Washington State)
To be fair, many of these women may be hiding their abortions simply because they come from dysfunctional christian backgrounds where both male and female sexuality are rigorously policed, in this particular situation I would speculate that daddy’s little princess likely tired of living in a christian chastity cult and found the nearest bad boy to give her a good pounding. Daddy didn’t approve but she likely had him wrapped around her little finger so all that was left to do was to bend the rules of his christian pro life worldview for a one time abortion pass while giving her a do-over after words. Obviously this did not work because she had another secret abortion only a few years later.
I’m aware that some in the manosphere would consider these pro-life women our natural allies. I do not. I believe that if they are this adamant about denying their own gender the right to control their own reproduction, they will attack male reproductive rights ten times more furiously.
