Sidewalk Snippet {1/2/12}

I didn’t hear this, but four escorts vouch for it.

Donna is yelling at a client going into the clinic, as usual, when she says:

“You know your abortion can be reversed.”

Really? That’s news to me.  Exactly how would they do that?

Laughing… ok, she probably meant “your decision.”  I guess.

But I remember the anti who said, in all seriousness, no mistake about it, that nowadays, there is no need for abortion because of something being wrong with the baby.

No, he assured the escort he was arguing with, medical science has improved so much that if there is something wrong?   No problem.  They can just take the baby out of the womb, perform surgery and put it back!

Magical medicine, practiced on the clinic sidewalk every day…

      Sorry for the delay in posting your comment.

      You’re right – I know there is such a thing as fetal surgery. And you’re also right that i didn’t need to exaggerate his point ~ that is a direct quote from him.

      His point was that there is no “reason” for a woman to have an abortion. Actually, there are lots of reasons for a woman to have an abortion, none of which are any of his business. I was just amused at his blithe dismissal of fetal anomalies as one of many reasons a woman might need to access abortion.

      The point of the blog is to form a network of support for those of us supporting reproductive health justice. If that “helps the controversy,” great, but that’s not the point of the blog. I’m not trying to convince anyone of anything, or mediate, or conciliate. I’m just expressing my thoughts and feelings.

  1. Gotta love the “science” these folks know about and trust. Unlike REAL science, that leaves them insulted, I’ve noticed!
