Pregnant? You asked for it, so too bad!


I have seen anti-abortion advocates make the claim that a pregnant woman is pregnant because she “invited” the pregnancy by having sex. “She should have known this could happen. It is a risk she knowingly took.” I know this is just antisexualism at its “finest”, but lets think about that for a minute.

If you leave your door open while baking cookies (something that gives you pleasure), it could be said you “invited” a trespasser into your house. If one enters.

Does this mean that you can’t make him leave now? If he starts punching you, stealing your stuff, breaking things, and making you sick, you have to just put up with it for 9 months (or however long) because your behavior up to the point he came in led to his presence?

I don’t think so.
