“Please Abort Me Teenage Mommy!”
Note: FreddyTheFetus and his caretaker who types on the computer for him are not advising anyone who wants to get pregnant and have babies not to get pregnant and have babies. However we do believe abortion can be a very positive choice particularly for teenagers who weren’t planning on having kids. (To be honest we do kinda hope American teenage girls aren’t trying to have kids since childhood doesn’t very well prepare you for it in most cases, but that’s a different blog post!) Also a lot of this evidence is anecdotal and full of bias and opinion, so, keep reading anyway.
So in case you the reader weren’t aware, teenagers have sex. Not just teenage boys either! Teenage girls like sex a lot too and actually aren’t always pressured into it. Sometimes we even initiate it! I know you might be radically surprised, but all that abstinence only education hasn’t stopped us one bit. (FreddyTheFetus doesn’t understand silly abstinence only education because he thinks condoms are much more fun to play with than purity rings!). All sorts of things unfortunately can still go wrong even when us youngins play it safe. Condoms break, pills are forgotten, and Plan B may not be in a girl’s vocab if she lives in a conservative area. So now we get the dreaded and unwanted baby bump. The nasty little plus sign that wont go away no matter how many times you pee on it. You’ve heard of the three options: Abortion, Adoption, and Parenting.
Ooh abortion that’s a scary word! Well let’s look at some negative aspects from the other options. Parenting should be obvious. Sure having a real life baby doll sounds like fun and you always wanted kids someday right? Except suddenly the thing is crying, pooping, leaking out all of it’s orfices, demanding every ounce of your attention, sucking up all the money you wanted to save up to do things like college, traveling, and a life of your own. Sometimes parents support their kids, sometimes they kick their kids out in the street. Sometimes teenage moms can even still go to prom, unless of course the baby gets sick or the babysitter is also going to prom. Being a mother is a full time job for the rest of your life, and you don’t get paid for it. Governments in many parts of the country (particularly the pro life parts) really don’t help as much as you think they would.
Adoption. Oh adoption! You can be just like Juno, a “Viking”. A brave and hilarious pregnant super hero! Oh yeah, pregnant. Giant belly. Feet swelling. Labor. Oh dear god child labor! Not to mention all the other sorts of lovely complications. Going to school might end up feeling like going to school with the flu, everyday. Suddenly you aren’t just you, you’re some sort of vessel who has to protect the funny little alien growing inside of you. Also when you give birth you release a lot of oxytocin, the attatchment horomone. You’re giving this baby away after carrying it inside of you for nine months. Your body is telling you “fuck no that’s my baby what are you doing?!”. You have to deal with a loss that you never expected, like someone has literally taken away a body part. Say hello to grieving counseling (and hope to god when the kid is 18 it doesn’t show up on your doorstep demanding why you didn’t keep him/her/ze).
There are a lot of TV shows out there glorifying teenage pregnancy, specifically teenage parenting. There isn’t a whole lot of heavy media coverage of positive abortion experiences. There’s a stigma around it. Yes, you made a mistake, had a bad night, etc. That doesn’t mean you need to punish yourself. No the fetus does not scream coming out, it’s not thinking or doing anything. It’s a collection of plasma and cells with the potential to grow into something. That’s pretty much it. You won’t see anything come out all bloody, the size of a billboard. Also that myth about the heartbeat, did you know that one heart cell will beat on it’s own? One heart cell is a lot different than a four-chamber blood pumping heart. Having an abortion doesn’t make you a bad person and God is not up in heaven glaring down at you going “Damn it I planned that condom break whats wrong with you?!” If you don’t want to deal with any of the stuff I mentioned above, you really do not have to. Your life is important and has value and you are not murdering anyone by having an abortion. Teenage parenting and pregnancy can steal away a lot of vitality and opportunities that you can keep. Abortion is not a terrifying, horrible, bloody experience either. It’s a very simple surgical procedure (or you could go the pill route and simply take some pills, watch some soaps at home, and be done with it). Having an abortion is not an “easy way out”. It’s a safe and responsible decision. By having an abortion you can keep going to school, not worry about any excess body changes, go to college, and continue with your life with no strings attached. If you want to have a kid some day the best thing you’ll be able to give them isn’t a decision to have them when you’re sixteen. It will be your wealth of life experiences, and a secure and safe place that you may not be able to give them in high school. Your kid may even thank you some day for having an abortion so they weren’t born into shitty circumstances. I’m proof of that! This is why FreddyTheFetus says “Please abort me teenage mommy!”.
“Thank the goddess I wasn’t born to a crack daddy!”

This is FreddyTheFetus! He was given to me by a pro-lifer with a giant sign of an aborted fetus and he told me that he has a lot of things he wants to say about feminism. The most important thing that he wants everyone to know is that “FreddyTheFetus supports womyns rights!”
