Insights from New Wave Feminists…
She and her child — whose life is considered a ‘choice’ (and because she CHOSE to keep the baby this is all her responsibility of course) — are now a burden to others. An inconvenience. This makes the fertile female person a liability to employers and partners.
We live in a world where if you experience an unplanned pregnancy you are expected to work twice as hard to make up for your fertility. That child is not a blessing, it’s a burden. It’s not a person, it’s a problem.
Because abortion is an option, when a woman doesn’t ‘choose’ to terminate her pregnancy, by default she’s choosing to burden her employer, her partner, her community.
And we hate her for it.
Abortion creates a world that is undeniably anti-woman.
