‘Involuntary Labor’ – Left-Wing Magazine Ridiculously Equates Outlawing Abortion With Slavery – Opinion

In this episode of “Creative Desperation”…

Both sides in the debate about abortion anxiously await a possible Supreme Court ruling to reverse it Roe v. Wade, not unlike Captain Ahab and the crew of the Pequod nervously waiting for Moby Dick to surface in the movie’s finale, abortion activists continue to create more and more ridiculous comparisons to making on-demand abortion illegal — or severely restricting it — that I’m not sure Most of them believe.

The following example is an illustration of this.

The Blaze reported that Ms. Magazine had published an editorial in which it made the absurd argument that overturning laws should be abolished. Roe would be a violation of the 13th Amendment (thus, unconstitutional) because “outlawing” abortion — Roe was overturned Would not — by forcing women into… wait for it… “involuntary labor.” I assume Ms. Magazine was not clever enough to intend a pun, but how awesome.

So let’s get into the silly business of SCOTUS overturning RoeBeing a violation of the 13th Amendment, as seen through Ms. Magazine’s abortion activist mind, Carrie Baker (also a Smith College women and gender studies professor) who flatly stated:

This is a violation of the 13th Amendment,” as she argued that “pregnancy, labor, and childbirth” should be interpreted merely as “difficult forms of work. These people are heartless, in case you forget.

Baker then ran through all of the awful “side effects” of pregnancy.

It is difficult work to be pregnant, labor or give birth. Pregnancy causes nausea, fatigue, tender and swollen breasts, constipation, body aches, dizziness, sleep problems, heartburn and indigestion, hemorrhoids, itching, leg cramps, numb or tingling hands, swelling, urinary frequency or leaking, varicose veins—and many more deeply invasive and painful experiences.

Horrid? Wait — there’s more.

The entire body is affected by pregnancy, including the heart, kidneys and respiratory systems, the skin, hormones, the liver, metabolism, and the skin. This increases the blood volume by approximately 50 percent, and decreases bone density. There are many risks associated with pregnancy, including high blood pressure and gestational diabetes.

It gets “better.”

“To force these experiences on an unwilling person is a form of involuntary servitude,” Baker continued, given the “side effects.” This is none of my business, of course, because I’m not a woman </sarcasm>, although I have not confirmed that conclusion with a biologist, but how ’bout these “unwilling persons” try practicing a bit more “unwillingness” earlier in the process?

Finally, Ms. Baker went so far as to compare “forcing someone to continue their pregnancy” to “bodily assault” and even “rape,” adding that outlawing on-demand abortion would have “surprisingly similar dynamics to domestic violence and sexual assault.”

How do you debate with these people? In my not-so-humble opinion, you don’t. It’s the old axiom: Never wrestle with a pig in the mud. Both of you get dirty and the pig enjoys every second.

So, what’s the point? DoDo you?

You counter the left’s lies and misrepresentations in the court of public opinion. You vote for and elect politicians who don’t believe killing an unborn child is an “essential health care service,” as does Joe Biden. Or “devout Catholics” like Nancy Pelosi who refer to late-term abortion as “sacred ground.”

Bottom line:

The death of an unborn, healthy baby is a crime. Not “women’s health care.”

“Keep your hands off my body” is ridiculous jargon; protecting the lives of unborn children has zero to do with “your” damn body.

This course, men have a right to fight against abortion; this is a battle against killing unborn children, not “women’s rights.”

If you disagree with any or all of the above, take it somewhere else — I don’t care.
