Mark Ruffalo On Abortion: 'I Don't Want To Turn Back The Hands Of Time'
"My mother’s illegal abortion marked a time in America that we have worked long and hard to leave behind," Ruffalo went on. "It was a time when women were seen as second rate citizens who were not smart enough, nor responsible enough, nor capable enough to make decisions about their lives. It was a time that deserved to be left behind, and leave it behind we did, or so it seemed."
R1. Shocking, but it's not about you.
It's about an issue bigger than you and not taking away a women's right to choose, which is very much in the news these days. Celebrities bring attention to important issues. If you're not interested because it's not about you or about this topic, then move along.
Sorry Mark, a woman who can't figure out how to use birth control is a woman who shouldn't "be able to make decisions about her life" by killing a baby.
Piss off, r4, go back to Freeperville
but if we could turn back time...
F&F for R4 - a useless, brain-dead, freeper troll.
Evidently, Mark Ruffalo is an intelligent, somewhat attractive man, who isn't afraid of women controlling their own reproductive systems.
Get me a knitting needle!

Yes, Freeperella, except your kind want to outlaw birth control as well. In fact, I expect to see laws governing the sexual mores of women pretty soon.
And finally Miss Freepster, how soon should I take birth control before a rape? Or is this God's wonderful plan?
No method of birth control except total abstinence is 100% effective, R4.
It doesn't matter if birth control is 100% effective. That's the risk you take. If you're unwilling to handle the risk of an unwanted pregnancy, don't have sex.
Why should the innocent baby suffer the consequences? As between the baby and the mother, let the one who could have avoided the situation bear the burden. That would be the mother.
And fewer than 2% of abortions involve rape. How pathetic that you immediately run to the rape argument. Let women who are raped have an abortion. After all, a raped woman didn't get pregnant due to any fault of her own.
I should've killed myself when he put it in me. After the first time, before we were married, Ralph promised never again. He promised, and I believed him. But sin never dies. Sin never dies. At first, it was all right. We lived sinlessly. We slept in the same bed, but we never did it. And then, that night, I saw him looking down at me that way. We got down on our knees to pray for strength. I smelled the whiskey on his breath. Then he took me. He took me, with the stink of filthy roadhouse whiskey on his breath, and I liked it. I liked it! With all that dirty touching of his hands all over me. I should've given you to God when you were born, but I was weak and backsliding, and now the devil has come home.
No, it isn't. It is about equal rights for people, whether they are gay, female, minority. People deserve the right to control their own bodies.
Make all men get vasectomies, starting with r4. When they can prove that they're worthwhile they can get their dicks untied.
plug it up plug it up plug it up
A woman seeking an abortion isn't "trying to control her own body." She's already lost control of her body. That's why she needs the abortion: she couldn't control her own sexuality.
Letting a sexually-negligent woman have an abortion is like telling Halle Berry that the next time she "makes a mistake" and hits somebody with her car she should run him over and kill him so she doesn't have to deal with the consequences.
Grow up women!
R17 is absolutely correct. I can't control my body, I have sex without even thinking about it and take birth control whenever I remember. I usually schedule my abortions on Thursdays, before I get nails or hair done and so I can go out have somemore sex on the weekend! I wish they would give discounts to frequent customers, but until Walmart starts offering them, what's a gal to do?
R18. What a joke meister.
bleed out r19
Indeed, r18. I had no idea it was considered "freeper" to expect women to understand cause and effect.
But apparently it is feminist to consider women to have no more agency than dogs and ponies!
I love mark
Too bad R4 and R17's moms didn't have abortions.
I don't know who you idiots are, but he is right. And somehow men getting all the sex they want is given a big OK on this site.
R21: please do us all a favor and catch drug-resistant gonorrhea. Then we can all moralize about how you brought it upon yourself. TIA!
Why would I catch an STD r25? Unlike straight women, I'm not sexually negligent. Society expects men to control themselves or deal with the consequences. Yet women are victims when they don't like the consequences.
None of you girls have been able to offer a defense of abortion. It is hardly "moralizing" to expect women to comprehend how babies are formed.
R4 sounds about 7,000 years old.
These folks are dying off, thank god.

How about, "you don't have a vagina, so shut the fuck up already"?
Sorry, let's try a less authoritarian approach.
"You don't have a vagina, so your opinions on abortion are absolutely, completely, 100% irrelevant."
i like it when they vacuum out the babies. all the little hands and feet!
Is the vagina some sort of killing zone the state can't enter? It is manifestly the responsibility of the state to protect the safety of the weakest among us. That means our unborn children. That you Nazis are celebrating the killing of weak children is pathetic.
If only we were all Ethiopian Jews emigrating to Israel, R32.
