Anti-Abortion Feminism Quote of the Day

In the Washington Post, Kathleen Parker writes on the Notre Dame Barack Obama abortionist love-fest speaker scandal:

Abortion, after all, is settled law, and Obama is the duly elected president. Clearly, the American people have moved on.

Or have they? And should we? Is there really ever a time when we should be comfortable with the ratification of abortion? It has always seemed to me that the truest form of feminism, as in the earliest days of suffrage, would be to hold abhorrent the state-sanctioned destruction of women's unique life-bearing gifts. Out of material expedience, we've somehow managed to convince ourselves that life is a mistake. [Emphasis all mine].

Oh yeah, the "truest form of feminism" must be wherever feminism was ONE HUNDRED FUCKING YEARS AGO. Now that women have the vote, what more do they want—the capacity to murder babies at will?

I, too, wish we could go back to the good 'ol days of feminism, when women were forced to provide their "unique life-bearing gifts" on demand instead of, you know, if and when they chose to give the fucking gift. I WANT ALL GIFTS ALL THE TIME! MORE GIFTS! MORE MORE MORE!

    sometimes, even something as precious as life is very much a mistake. and women don't need a lot of men - and other women - making that difficult choice even more difficult. free is a bitch. life is more complicated with choices, but without them it isn't even your own...

    state-sanctioned destruction of women’s unique life-bearing gifts is only anti-feminist, miss parker, when OTHER PEOPLE make decisions on those gifts besides the woman who owns them.
