Pro-lifers: "Women have too much rights"
« on: May 07, 2012, 01:54:18 pm »
Students: "Fuck you, Pro-life!" In an attempt to teach college students that women have too much rights and it's killing "children", anti-choice activists Abby Johnson and the UW Catholic Newman Center's Respect Life Student Group wanted a lopsided discussion at the University of Washington about abortion (lopsided because they only invited pro-lifers to discuss). What they didn't expect is for the students to actually challenge what they say:

Quote
The atmosphere of the room was everything but calm as the audience shouted and raised their signs, interrupting Johnson as she tried to speak.

“Citation needed” and "liar" were common phrases heard throughout the talk.

“I think the most offensive part is the just the scientific inaccuracy,” UW freshman Robin Sacks said. “She’s saying that because the fetus moved, that means it was feeling pain. Really, they don’t have the capacity to feel pain yet.”
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

To the students of the University of Washington, my proverbial hat is off to you.  Most groups would stay silent and just bear the bullshit, but you lot challenged them, and that's not something they'll forget.

Good for them. More people need to step up and call bullshitters on their bullshit.

So someone actually did this?



I so wish we had a picture.

Wow.  Glad they shut her down so efficiently.

It's amazing that a woman so deep in her own ass is questioning if women have too many rights when it comes to abortion.  This shit makes me sick.  I really don't understand how people don't understand that this isn't an abortion issue but an issue for a woman to do with her body what she wants.  If she wants to have consequence-free sex then so be it.

Ironbite-really irritating that people still pass laws to try and inhibit women from having "fun".

Oh from the reference article:

Quote
“I think they could have been more civilized,” Nguyen said. “I can understand the pro-choice side. I can see where people coming from — with women’s rights and that kind of thing — but I feel like they could have presented themselves better, you know, maybe in a more civilized, respectful way.”

Because Pro-choice being "uncivilized" is totally worse than Pro-lifers endangering and threatening people.

This will probably just end up as more fuel for their persecution complex.

Since they bitch about being persecuted so much, when can I start persecuting them?

You already are. In their mind, disagreeing with them is persecution.

In some fundy minds, that you even exist oppresses them.

Yeah, I was going to say, this isn't exactly the kind of political climate where conservative shit flies.

Well I don't present "myself better" when some ass hat is attempting to command a one-way message and lying to my face. It's exactly how I feel about preachers in general. If they weren't so goddamned insecure in their beliefs, it would be a discussion not a sermon.

Love love love the "Citation Needed" comments. I guess knuckle-draggers find it disrespectful if you challenge their lies. Bullshitters tend to get ultra defensive when called out for it.
