Couple sets up internet poll to decide whether to terminate their pregnancy or have the baby.

I'm sure it's a prank.




Please?

If by prank, you mean a way for anti-abortionists to think they're making pro-choicers look like callous idiots, then yes, it's a prank.

Shut the fork up.
This has to be a joke.

Yep.

At least they're getting creative, instead of harassing women and killing doctors?

What if--okay, this is a little crazy, but bear with me here...what if "pro-life" people actually honoured life by working towards ensuring that all pregnancies are wanted, through such things as comprehensive sex ed, availability of contraception, sex-positive education? And then! Oh God, this actually is crazy. Imagine if they actually supported those babies they so desperately want once they're outside the womb by supporting accessible daycare, support systems for single parents, etc.?

Oh...wait. Those are all things we pro-choice activists do. Silly me.

I didn't mean to suggest

1) that pro-choicers are anything other than intrusive hypocrites, or

2) that women shouldn't have the right to make decisions about their own bodies and reproductive choices.

Hi.

Well I voted abortion. You guys?

I think the ppk can really rally around this cause and get that fetus aborted by the end of the week. We have the numbers! (We don't.)

Oh, but non-abstinence-only sex ed and making birth control easily accessible would be encouraging and enabling bad choices. You see, no one should be having sex unless they are married and make above the median household income, and if you do have sex without meeting both conditions, you have to suffer the consequences, especially if it results in pregnancy. Didn't you know?

Voting goes on until the beginning of December. Apparently in whatever state they're in, you can't abort past 20 weeks, and Dec. 8 would be the 20 week mark.
