“My body, my choice” only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.

Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.

See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon. 

Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy. 

To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died. 

You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies. 

reblogging for commentary 

But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too. 

First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation. 

And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument.

Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all.

If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other. 

When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting.

When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.” 

And that is gross. 

^ THIS. This is this this THIS THIS THIS. THIS!!!!!

This is probably the strongest and well worded/supported argument for abortion that I have ever read.


Yep, this was flagged for me too. Which is why I’m going to reblog it several time until Tumblr implodes.

Last night, I’ve finished reading Dracula!! I enjoyed it much more than I thought, I especially loved the way the book was constructed by using journals, letters, etc. I think I like old vampire stories a lot more bc I’ve quite enjoyed Carmilla too.

🎧Angèle, Flou

That’s one of my favorite books ❤

I have faith that you can build that in yourself :) remember you are loved and dont give up!


I’d like to share something that I just realized…

The reason that I walk out of my school counselor’s office after our appointment almost crying is because I can see that he has faith in me, and currently is a faith that I don’t really have on myself.

I’m trying to work on building that self confidence and having faith in myself

thank you so much 💖

I went to another grad seminar today. And one of the speakers (a psychologist) said:

“You don’t have to be smart to get a PhD. There are plenty of smart people without them. An IQ score won’t get you a phd and it will take dedication, determination and preservance, not smarts. Brain power won’t help you. A lack there of won’t hurt you. Because, to get a PhD, become a doctor, a professor, or whatever else, you’ll spend the best years of your life in school. People like me, like us, didn’t get out first ‘real’ job till we were in our 30s. And it doesn’t matter what degree you are getting, music, medicine, biology…you’re in it for the long haul. So when it starts to feel like the long haul that it is, don’t wish for intelligence. Stop saying you aren’t smart enough. Don’t pray for a bigger brain or sell your soul to Satan in exchange for being a genius. But wish for patience and endurance instead. It takes courage, and strength to do what it is you all are trying do. Its the work that earns the degree, and work is done much better by determined idiots than by lazy smarty pants. There will be plenty of times you feel stupid and I’m not going to argue with that. But what I will say is don’t let stupidity stop you. We are all idiots but let’s be the idiots that thrive. ”

I finally admitted to myself that bullet journals aren’t for me. I just don’t want to commit the time to them to make spreads every week and come up with page ideas and it’s just a lot of pressure I put on myself to make them pretty and presentable. It’s the same reason I only rewrite my notes once after class to make them legible. It’s just not functional for me. So I instead got this pretty planner. I think it’s gonna work great and I’m excited to see how my productivity soars with it!


join the planner team 🤩⭐
