A recent article at LifeNews.com reveals how false the “my body my choice” argument really is. The writer talks about Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the family who now has 20 children of their own. People often spew hateful comments at the Duggar’s for their decision to have so many children. And yet, I would think the pro-choice feminist crowd would stand behind the Duggar’s and scream “my body my choice” at all those who insult the family for making a…choice.
The article points out though: “The reality is that there are still women out there who have no desire to have careers and simply want to stay at home and raise a family. And if that’s what a woman wants to do, whether it’s for religious reasons or just because she loves children, ‘it’s her choice’ and she should be able to exercise that choice without being verbally assaulted and degraded. Based on the sentiments presented in the article’s discussion section, the ‘it’s my body, my choice’ slogan only seems to apply when a woman wants an abortion. When a woman chooses to have more children than average, in the eyes of those who made these hateful comments, she becomes a ‘repulsive freak’ and should stop bearing children.”
Once again the rhetoric of the pro-abortion position falls short of logic and consistency. If these women were truly pro-choice, as they claim, they would laud Michelle Duggar for making “her choice” to have so many children and be thankful that she had that choice to make. I guess for them, there’s just one choice. Not much of a “choice.” Click here for original article.
