So, I survived my first solo talk. It wasn’t too bad.
Did you miss it? Well, here you go!
My thoughts afterwards are thus:
I got a lot of thanks from folks, which is nice.
What’s up with the gross pictures? That’s what pro-lifers love to use, it’s one of their favorite tactics when it comes to telling others how icky abortion is. Being perfectly willing to acknowledge that yes, abortion isn’t pretty, yes, depending how far along you are, the contents have features that will pull at some heartstrings (unless you’re just plain USED to looking at guts and gore, then you’re probably waaay smarter than I am), and yes, it’s gross as hell, means I take one of their bullets out of the gun.
It’s surgery. It’s icky. It’s also has less complications than dental surgery. It also is a legal procedure and safer than giving birth. It also is the choice of the pregnant person, made with the advice of their doctor. It also can improve the quality of life for families and single folk alike.
So, yeah, what now, fuckers?
