Here. Have a little taste of the sons we are raising in the wake of Free Love. Mr. Ben Sherman (I add Mr. to be absurd. Ben is clearly no Man) has provided us with the most self-interested, juvenile, pathetic argument for unrestricted abortion in the history of pro-infanticide. His mom would be so proud.
On July 3, Ben Sherman wrote Bro-Choice: How #HB2 Hurts Texas Men Who Like Women. His big idea was that “radically” restricting abortion by requiring abortion clinics to have hospital-level facilities and outlawing abortion after 20 weeks (because having your limbs ripped into little, more easily disposable pieces hurts, even at that age) “hurts men who like women.” His four main points:
1. Your girlfriend’s life will be in danger if she can’t get an abortion. Hey Ben, guess what? Abortions, even the “safe and legal” brand, may be more dangerous for women than carrying a child to term. There are a myriad of potential complications with abortions and a increased likelihood of long-term physical, mental, and emotional damage. This is just a red herring to distract from his real reason. I have saved that one for last but you can jump ahead if you must. See you at number 4.
2. Your freedom to choose is at stake too – “do you want that decision made for you by politicians in state government?” Hey Ben. You had the “freedom to choose” already. Let me tell you a little something about sex. Physiologically, it doesn’t happen if the guy doesn’t want it, understand? There are times when sex is forced on women. But sex, and therefore pregnancy, is never forced on men. Your opportunity to “choose” has passed.
3. You want to decide when and if to have kids. “Even if you want to have kids, you probably don’t want an accident to make you a father before you’re psychologically ready and able to care for a child.” Hey Ben. ACCIDENTS are no fault. Did you accidentally slip, and have your penis land in the woman who was unfortunate enough to break your fall? This reasoning may be beyond your grasp but, if you can make a baby, you are physiologically ready for fatherhood. Obviously that doesn’t mean you are emotionally mature enough to make the daily sacrifice involved in supporting a child and her mother. Maybe this bill will force your emotional maturity to catch up with your physiological urges. Gosh, MAYBE you will need to man up and consider the consequences of your actions. Unless you slip and fall. Then perhaps you can just sue her?
4. Your sex life is at stake. “Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? …don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.” Hey Ben. BRO! Sex is not solely recreational and women’s bodies don’t exist to serve your every-72-hours-discharge needs. Sex has life-creating properties, and this bill will make it harder for you to separate that reality from your weekend hook-ups.
(An aside. LADIES. You are a fool to chance a lifetime connection with a man-child of this caliber. You and your future children deserve MUCH better. Free love has done so much damage to women and children. Sex without consequences makes us women exactly what we claim we don’t want to be. Objectified, disrespected and used.)
Unfortunately for you, Bro, the Texas House approved HB2 this morning. Much to the silent rejoicing of the in-utero babies created in your “relationships with women that may have lasted anywhere from a few minutes to many years,” you might now have to act like a real man by living for someone other than yourself. Or perhaps, at least, stop treating women as sperm depositories.
I know that this legislation puts your Peter Pan lifestyle at risk. But look at the bright side. If your sexual expression is limited by this legislation, you could always move to one of the 49 states where unfettered infanticide paves the way for your never-ending, hedonistic sexual “freedom and choice”.
