My Body, My Choice. Or is it?

Question: How do you instantly turn a beautiful, young woman into an ugly, raging monster?

Answer: Show her this sign.

This is guaranteed to work if she is an ardent believer in “women’s reproductive rights”, a.k.a., abortion on demand. She may be many other things as well, but fervent support of abortion is usually sufficient to turn the trick.

I was with a group of others this morning, Saturday, October 23, 2021, on a street corner in Missoula, MT publicly protesting the Covid regimen being forced upon us by the “powers that be” (whomever that might be all the way from local to international). Some of us have been meeting regularly in Missoula since mid-May sparking conversation with people about this issue, engaging successfully in spirited debates from all sides of the spectrum. We have also been subjected to numerous insults, sneers, vulgar gestures and comments, and even sincere expressed wishes that we would catch Covid and die from it. Usually, these are made as the commenter drives or walks by without bothering to stop and talk with us in a rational manner. We are used to it. It goes with the territory.

But I wander. Back to Saturday.

Soon after we arrived and were set up, a young, good-looking woman rolled up on her bicycle and asked me (I was closest) whether we extended the message of the above slogan to a woman’s “right” to abortion. I responded to her by saying that I firmly supported every woman’s right to become pregnant if she wanted to. At this, Bicycle Girl’s demeanor changed instantly, a scowl appeared on her face, and she shouted, “Go f**k yourself!”, as she peddled furiously away.

This is not an uncommon occurrence.

The slogan (and others like it) simply drive these people into frenzied fits of rage. It would seem logical that someone who had such strong feelings about personal bodily autonomy would also support that autonomy when it comes to forced injections of the Pfizer/Moderna/J&J type, but this does not appear to hold true. Since they refuse to talk logically and explain their rationale, I am forced to conclude that they probably fully support forcing others to get the Covid jab, whether they want it or not.

They want to be able to control their bodies, but they do not want you to claim that same power over yours. They are not willing to extend that “right” to anyone else who promotes a philosophy which they disagree with. They hate it when we co-opt their slogans and statements, using them in ways which are NOT acceptable, and they hate us for doing exactly that. They are filled with hatred, and they let it show. Furiously.

They are also hypocrites who cannot abide having their hypocrisy revealed. At this point, however, there is nothing they can do about it except to vent their spleen, which may make them feel better, but does absolutely nothing at all to correct the situation. If they really wanted to make it right, they would have to admit their wrongs, change the way they think, and change their behavior, which they are not willing to do.

Perhaps, though, we should think about it this way.

  • For the abortionist, “My body, my choice” means she can do whatever she wants with her body and no one else has any right or moral authority to say otherwise. There is an easy way to turn this argument against them, though, because all that is necessary is to mention that when a woman is pregnant there are two bodies involved, not one, and one of those bodies is not hers. She has no right to determine what happens to the body of the unborn child. It is not her body.

Abortion, plainly and simply, is an act of violent aggressive behavior toward another unique, living human being.

  • For the person resisting the Jab, it is a matter of self-defense. “No, you are not going to stick that needle into my arm nor force me into a situation of which I do not approve. My body, my choice.” It is my choice whether I get The Shot and no one has the right or authority to tell me otherwise. To force me to undergo the injection (I refuse to call it a vaccine) is, in principle, no different than forcing an unborn child to submit to an abortion. Both are done against the will of the weaker party, who bears the full brunt of the pain and suffering.

Aggression vs. self-defense. My body, my choice. It could not be more clear than that.
