I keep hearing abortion activists saying that if Roe v Wade is overturned, women won't have access to "reproductive healthcare". Does abortion = reproductive healthcare?
Not at all
Quite the opposite. Reproductive healthcare is about reproduction, not the elimination of it.
No. Abortion is the exact opposite of reproductive healthcare.
It means that men are responsible for unwanted pregnancies.
Its part of reproductive health care but mot the only part
As a nursing student currently in OB rotations... no😂
Typical news speak from the radical left.
Reproductive Termination, more like it!
Just another misleading euphemism, in other words, a flat out lie.
With that logic, taking care of your garden must mean killing your plants.
I can across this last night and it made me cry.
If you’re talking about, PP, they offer more than abortions.
I'm talking about the right to an abortion, not PP.
Ok, then I agree with you. What the activists are saying is ridiculous.
I don’t know anyone who has been to PP.
Or at least none that have told you. I'm not disputing that PP offers other services besides abortions. Birth control for underprivileged people is a good thing. But to refer to an abortion as "reproductive healthcare", and to say that women would not be able to access "reproductive healthcare" if abortion was outlawed, is just an outright lie. And, if as PP claims and abortions only account for 3% of their services, outlawing abortion shouldn't affect them all that much.
CC- when I was in high school, there was a PP within a mile of the school. It’s where some of the girls went for birth control. I haven’t known anyone to go there since then.
There is one about a mile from my house. If you needed a job - front desk, record keeping or even giving out BC - I would never work there. I don’t understand how women can work there.
When I was a newlywed, I remember going to Planned Parenthood for birth control pills. Of course, that was 55 years ago! 😊
And that was many years before Roe vs. Wade.
I just looked it up. Roe vs. Wade was 1973. My daughter was born in 1968.
I think though they probably had a “better reputation” then than now. I would think most people thought more of them as family planning than what it has become
@Earlybird - we have softened you up. When you first joined SOH you were a pro choicer all the way. We rubbed off on you - and especially now with that precious dumpling grand baby in your life 💙
Cc- yes, you guys have softened me up. 🤗
It does not. I think that is a bad argument.
It’s kinda the opposite of that.
That's my feeling exactly.
If you have to be dishonest in your framing of an argument, you've already lost the argument.
Unless the hearers/readers are stupid enough to swallow it.
I call it De-reproductive healthcare.
My point exactly.
De-reproductive? Dis-reproductive? Un-reproductive? Anti-reproductive? Non-reproductive? Reproductive-less?
They are destroying their base.
If you assume that most children will end up voting the same as their parents, then yes.
Of course not.
That is, of course, nonsense.
Reproductive health care should mainly mean prenatal care and counselling during pregnancy.
"Planned parenthood" for example will have to live up to its name instead of trying to make sure you do NOT become a parent.
Let’s take care of the uterus and ovaries.
To me, "reproductive healthcare" means helping someone being able to reproduce, or to keep them healthy in the process. Not stopping the process. That seems to me to be the opposite of "reproductive healthcare", if the intended outcome is not reproduction.
Reproductive health care, by definition of the terms, should be confined to the organs responsible for reproducing. This is not rocket science.
I don’t even think this is really just a conservative point of view. This is science.
Reproductive health care shouldn’t even have anything to do with what it reproduces.
I would really like to see what a liberal has to say about this on a serious level.
And here’s a newsflash, men too have reproductive healthcare “needs” that are completely ignored — even disdained — by radical feminists who advocate for this distraction from the murder of children.
I would really like to see a liberal’s response.
An HONEST liberal's response, not a bomb-thrower.
If they had a faulty reproductive organs system they wouldn’t have a baby to kill.
Calling all advocates of baby killing, please provide the liberal argument for this.
