"film buff" fuckboys: "i love quentin tarantino he’s a master omg reservoir dogs and pulp fiction changed my life" *ignores death proof* *ignores jackie brown* *ignores that inglorious basterds is actually about a woman* *ignores the fact that literally half of tarantino’s films are about women kicking ass*
The last time someone referred to something I did as “seeking attention” I didn’t speak to them again for an entire year. And that was my own god damn sister. So don’t for one fucking second think I won’t kick your ass to the fucking curb if you try to fuck with my head like that. It’s my life, it’s my body, I will do with it what I please and you have no fucking say in the matter. There’s the fucking door.

So this issue has come up in my life twice in the last two days which, to me, warrants a response. I want to start off saying that this is entirely my opinion (with a few statistics to support why it’s my opinion) and I am pro-choice AND pro-adoption, but I just need to get this off my chest because it’s something I’m very passionate and serious about.
First, I’m in no way saying adoption is bad or that you shouldn’t adopt so let’s just get that straight right now. I’m all for adoption and I would love to adopt some day. However, when selfish and irresponsible people (not that all people in this situation are irresponsible and selfish) find themselves with an unwanted pregnancy, I would like to urge them to seriously consider abortion.
How about Open Adoptions? Don’t even get me started on “open adoptions”, I feel that is so cruel to be like “lol I gave birth to you and I’m still in your life but I didn’t want you/couldn’t keep you cause I was irresponsible but I want to feel like I’m still important,” like come on, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Either take responsibility and keep the child you forced into this world, or let it go and allow it to live it’s own life without you being a constant reminder that they weren’t wanted. I wasn’t adopted myself but when I was young I had to go live with my father (which ended up being a poisonous environment until he kicked me out- but I’m an adult now so things are better) and all I can remember is thinking, “Mom, why couldn’t you take care of me? Why couldn’t you keep me? Why couldn’t you do what you needed to so I could stay with you? Where were you when I needed you? Why did you throw me to the wolves?” So I can only imagine how much more I would resent her if she pawned me off to some random family and still demanded to be in my life. She wanted the joy of having a child but couldn’t handle the responsibility of taking care of one (or even my older siblings that were raised by our grandmother).
So you’d kill a child instead of giving it to a family who wants it? Don’t you want to give it a chance? Don’t get it twisted. If done safely and responsibly, abortion is almost always a better option than putting yet another child through the adoption process. Abortion is not “killing a child,” it’s terminating an unwanted pregnancy before the fetus is even considered a being. And personally, I’d rather do that then put my child, my flesh and blood, through not only the emotionally draining adoption process, or even worse-the foster care system, but also a life of questions and confusion and more often than not, resentment. I believe it is selfish and irresponsible to conceive a child and then pawn it off on someone else because you can’t take care of it when there are already so many poor children in the world that need homes. "Around the world, there are an estimated 153 million orphans who have lost one parent. There are 17,900,000 orphans who have lost both parents and are living in orphanages or on the streets and lack the care and attention required for healthy development. These children are at risk for disease, malnutrition, and death," (from facts and statistics as linked above). And I’m sorry but I can’t take anyone seriously who can read that and still be okay with putting another life through that. Think about those children, give THEM a chance.
Yeah but there are so many couples that can’t have children! And what about same-sex couples!? Think of them! I promise you, there are already more orphaned children than there are people to adopt them. Why would you want to add to that problem? I understand that abortion is a controversial subject, but DO NOT come to me hiding behind your PRO-LIFE bullshit and claim to be thinking of the children. You are not. You are being selfish. If you can’t raise a child, you should not be allowed to carry it to full term and then send it off. And trust me, if things were different, if there were millions more people wanting to adopt than there were children to adopt, I wouldn’t be saying ANY of this. But that’s not the way the world works, no matter how much we wish it was. If it was up to me, every child would have a loving stable family and homelife. But it’s not.
I’m not saying GET ABORTIONS, DON’T ADOPT, HAIL SATAN, KILL BABIES. All I’m asking is for people to seriously CONSIDER all the options. After all an unwanted pregnancy is YOUR responsibility, no one else’s.
Also, when being sexually active, PLEASE, I URGE YOU TO RESEARCH AND TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT WHAT KIND OF BIRTH CONTROL / CONTRACEPTIVE WOULD BE RIGHT FOR YOU.There are SO MANY kinds of birth control, I know there is one right for you. And it’s so worth looking into because unwanted pregnancies are no fun for anyone (meaning you, your sexual partner, and your child-to-be/not-to-be) so please just save yourself the trouble! Safe sex is so important, and believe it or not most birth controls offer a lot more than just preventing a bun in your oven.
And by all means, if you want to and are able to, PLEASE ADOPT. There are SO MANY children in the world in need of loving families.
Above ALL ELSE, remember that it is YOUR body and it is YOUR decision. Do not feel ashamed, just do what you think is right. Also, always consult a doctor before making any decisions, I can’t stress that enough.
