Why would we believe that women naturally kill their own children? Instead, throughout the history of the world, abortion and infanticide have been traditional tools for male exploitation of women. It’s simple. A guy gets a woman pregnant, then he wants to get rid of the evidence and responsibility.
The 19th century suffragettes and feminists such as Susan B. Anthony, Matilda Gage, Mary Wollstonecraft, even Emma Goldman, asserted that the prevalence of abortion was a symptom of the general exploitation of women.
What is the main result of the call for “abortion rights”? A boyfriend doesn’t want to pay child support. Poof! The baby vanishes! An employer doesn’t want to offer job-sharing, flex-time or telecommuting. Poof! “Freedom of choice” in abortion allows him to reduce the career choices of his female employees.
To me, it’s significant that NARAL was founded by two men who later convinced feminist leader Betty Friedan to reluctantly join forces with them. Two-thirds of their first year’s budget went to a PR firm. “I remember laughing when we made those slogans up,” said Dr. Bernard Nathanson.
The pro-abortion movement is a relic of the discredited “old feminist” movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the goal was for women to do everything that men do. The question today is “Why would women even want to do everything that men do, considering how men have messed things up?” For example, why would women want to serve in combat? Combat is the ultimate guy thing. Women have better ways to solve problems. Don’t today’s feminists want to be women, not men?
Abortion lets women submit to the restrictions of a man’s world, that’s all. It allows career women to discard their children, just like career men do. Some improvement.
