Arguing, Life, and Logic: pokpok of color @catharticwords If you think a woman can only have an abortion if she was raped,youre saying a woman has to be violated before she has rights to her body L1 desisupremacy Repost from @desisupremacy: "(TW: rape mention, abortion) Here are my two cents on this reasoning that I've been thinking lately. So most anti-choicers have at least accepted that it is acceptable for a rape victim to have an abortion. Regardless of who gets an abortion, you are still preventing the formation of a potential child. So the common anti-choice argument of "killing an innocent baby" fails with this logic. In other words, if an anti-choicer can accept a rape victim getting an abortion, they clearly are not as concerned about the fetus' life as they claim. They are against people with a uterus who CHOSE to have sex. They believe that because a woman (or a person considered as a woman in a cisnormative society) is paying a punishment for consenting to sex when she-he-they get pregnant, and that said pregnant person should be forced to undergo this consequence of consenting to sex. With that said, I call bullshit on most (key word) anti-choicers "concern for the child" and really just link their opinion on abortion to their hatred of female sexuality. They can't argue against the vulnerability of a rape survivor so they accept the survivor getting an abortion, but a person who got pregnant from consensual sex is "selfish and immoral" and should therefore be punished by controlling their bodily autonomy. ~S"

Arguing, Dating, and Life: Louisiana Man Faces Life In Prison For Killing Girlfriend's Convicted Molester, Says He's "Not Sorry" @balleralert Louisiana Man Faces Life In Prison For Killing Girlfriend’s Convicted Molester, Says He’s “Not Sorry” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, a Louisiana man was found guilty on charges of second-degree murder after he admitted to killing the man who molested his girlfriend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the incident occurred in July 2015. Brittany Monk, the girlfriend, testified in court that she and her boyfriend, Jace Crehan, broke into the convicted molester’s trailer and tried to scare him. However, things took a turn for the worse after she sprayed cologne in Robert Noce Jr.’s face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As she stood before the court, Monk said she told Noce, who was convicted of sexually assaulting Monk for nine years, that he ruined her life. She said her boyfriend then instructed her to get a knife, to which she complied, retrieving the “biggest” knife she could find. Crehan then used the knife to stab Noce repeatedly, just before wrapping a belt around Noce’s neck, using his foot to pull it tighter. After the struggle, the two threw Noce’s body in a 55-gallon container and threw the knife in a lake. Days later, Daily News reports, Crehan admitted to the murder, as he believed the justice system “failed” his girlfriend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred just days after Noce pleaded no contest to sexually molesting Monk while he was dating her mother. However, Crehan said he was “not sorry” for his actions, in fact, he revealed that he felt “a lot better.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Crehan’s attorney attempted to argue that his actions were in passion, prosecutors said they were “vigilante” justice, adding that, “We do not live in a country where we as a society are allowed to take the law into our own hands and do justice.” As a result, a jury found Crehan guilty of second-degree murder, he is now facing life in prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Monk, on the other hand, pleaded guilty to manslaughter earlier this year and is facing 40 years in prison.
