Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood

Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it

The abortion debate is not about unborn babies. I bet you knew that, didn’t you? If it were, there would be a similar outcry over every issue involving the lives of babies. Such as lack of healthcare, babies born addicted to drugs, babies killed after being left in hot vehicles, etc. Every year here in Texas someone leaves a kid in a carseat in 100 degree weather and the kid bakes. No public outcry. No organized protest. In fact, the person responsible usually escapes criminal prosecution.

 

But do you really know what it is about? The pro-life attempt to criminalize abortion is not about saving the lives of unborn babies. If it were about that, you’d see pro-lifers working toward preventing unwanted pregnancies and better adoption rates of unwanted children. In Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood, Kristin Luker explains the psychology behind this centuries-old debate.

 

People generally don’t put a lot of time and effort into an issue unless it directly affects them. So..how are pro-lifers directly affected by the abortions of others?

 

The abortion debate is about women and their role in society.

Illegal Abortions Lead to Women’s Health Crisis in Haiti

Illegal Abortions Lead to Women’s Health Crisis in Haiti | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it

After three days of vomiting, heavy bleeding and agonizing pain, she stumbled into a maternity hospital. Doctors rushed her into surgery where they stopped the bleeding, and repaired her perforated uterus, botched in the first abortion attempt...

 

Abortion is illegal in Haiti but women and girls are losing their uteruses and their lives as they turn to clandestine, increasingly deadly ways to terminate their pregnancies. These unsafe abortions are leading to a public health crisis in a region with one of the world’s highest rates of unintended pregnancies, experts say.

This was written in May 2012, but things are not looking up for women and children in today's economy. The tragedy today is that people who could do something about this are too busy debating theory to deal with this unthinkable reality. jkl
