Your Daughter Isn't So Special

I read this post on DailyKos this morning, and have been mulling over what to say about it. The gist of it is, the author is chatting with a man about abortion. He claims to be anti-choice, when he did infact help his 19 year-old daughter get an abortion. He claims that she was just too young to have a child, had a bright future in front of her, the fella that knocked her up was a scoundrel, and now she's successful and happily married with kids.

I'm very happy this woman was able to continue about her life and be successful. It's just these success stories that exemplify why we need to protect the right for women to chose what to do with their uteruses.

This man thinks his daughter is 'special,' and not like all the other girls that have unwanted pregnancies. He thinks she deserved to get a second chance in life and have a safe and legal abortion, but others don't. I'm sure his daughter is special, but so is every woman. There are a lot of women going through the same thing, and each one deserves to take the path of their choosing without the government or any one else interfering.

    If every father felt that way, then there wouldn't be a problem. Guess not, so we must fight for a woman's right to choose. I say, when the men can get pregnant, then they can say something on this subject, but until then, I tell them - shut the fuck up!

    God most loves hypocrits and beetles. That is why He make so many of each!

    That guy is such an ass! I think people like that should be court ordered to carry a tape recorder and forced to listen to highlights of their idiocy at the end of each week.
