If I were to become pregnant, my life would be at risk, and I would choose an #abortion. I lost two years of my life after the birth of my second son because the hormones it takes to create human life make me lose my mind.1/14

I became crippled with fear, and my thoughts were dark. The thoughts told me I needed to die. They told me this all day long. It took every bit of strength I had to fight them. I could barely leave my house. For. Two. Years. 2/14
I had 2 sons, ages 4 yrs. and newborn. I fought hard to stay alive for them. The energy it took to fight my own brain in order to stay alive took so much out of me; I didn't have much left over to give to them. I kept them alive. It was the best I could do. They deserved more.3/

There are a lot of things about the current attack on women's rights that really upset me, but religion based pro-life hypocrisy is something that isn't touched on enough. ( a thread ) #AbortionIsAWomansRight
I'm not talking about the people who are pro-life just for themselves. I'm talking about the people who use their religious beliefs as the basis to take away someone else's rights. People who shame you at clinics and support candidates who will further their religious agenda.
People who want to ban abortions claim that it's God's plan and only God creates life as reasons abortion should be illegal. This unwanted baby is what GOD wanted, so you cannot terminate the pregnancy, health or desires of the mother be damned. There is no place for science.

[FIO pra quem defende o aborto]

Eu desejo ter a oportunidade de mostrar que estão objetivamente errados. Não é exigir muito de quem se dispõe ao debate público abertura crítica. Não é guerra no sentido clássico de “continuar a política por outros meios”. #AbortionIsAWomansRight
Penso que quem defende o aborto ignora (ou diverge de pressupostos) temas fundamentais de antropologia e filosofia moral para falar do estatuto do embrião como pessoa.  Suas agendas expressam mais em erros do que no desejo mórbido de destruir o embrião pelo prazer de destruí-lo.
Defendo essa teoria — inspirado na teoria socrática do erro moral. Para o caso do aborto, penso que as ideias de Sócrates de que “ninguém erra voluntariamente” e “é melhor sofrer uma injustiça do que praticá-la” têm peso filosófico significativo para a discussão atual.

Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce @Larry_Stutts, State Senator from Alabama who loves it when girls who have been raped by a family member are further tortured by being forced to carry their rapists baby. Hi Larry. We see you. #AbortionIsAWomansRight
Here's @Sam_Givhan. Sam is making sure that any woman who has the nerve to get herself raped will be forever tied to her rapist by being forced to have his child. Why would Sam do this? I guess Sam just hates women. Hi Sam. We see you. #AbortionIsAWomansRight
Here's Alabama State Senator Steve Livingston. You can find him at @steve17785344 - he loves to hear from friends across the nation. Steve's hobbies include subjugation of women, forced pregnancy, and science denial! Hi Steve. We see you. #AbortionIsAWomansRight

The central tenet of the pro-life movement is that an unborn child — from conception — should have the same protections as a person who has already been born; no more, no less. That is why #EqualityForAll is inconsistent with the notion that #AbortionIsAWomansRight /1
If so, no unborn child should be killed absent a legal justification that would otherwise apply to the killings of persons already born. /2
For example, I would be legally justified to kill another person who is an immediate threat to my life. That would be self-defense. Similarly, a mother who has an ectopic pregnancy, for example, would be justified in aborting her pregnancy since her very life depends upon it. /3
