And Dolan is pro-choice. By the way, aren't we all "pro-life"?

Exactly, R3. Colin is anti-choice, not pro-anything. She's also not a feminist because a feminist would never want to take away a woman's right to make her own choices.
That pretty much makes her a liar on all counts.

Being an anti-choice feminist is a lot like being a Nazi who loves Jews.

She's somebody's mother on Gossip Girl. But she's been around forever in theater, in soaps and in TV that's mostly filmed in NYC.

She actually is a very fine, reliable NY theater actress.
This "pro-choice" position is interesting, to say the least.

Isn't everyone pro-life? I'm pro life. I'm very much in favor of life. I also think a woman should be able to make the informed decision about whether to terminate a pregnancy.
We need to start calling people who don't think women should make their own reproductive decisions something else. "Pro-lfe" is misleading.
They should be called something like
1. Uterine interventionists: They believe others have the right to intervene in anyone's uterus.
2. Fetal statists: The state comprises all fetuses as well as people.
3. Vaginal transnationalists: The nation includes all vaginas because they might contain people, since personhood starts at conception.
4. Utero-publicans: The uterus is a public space.
The terminology should change. This has little to do with whether you think abortion is right or wrong, it has to do with where you believe government should interfere.

What a condescending drip you are. How about you and others mind your own business. "Informed decision" means women need someones PERMISSION. Wrong. Get your nose and paws out of women's reproductive organs, ya weirdo. There should be a huge discussion every time a man wants to watch porn, scratch his nuts or masturbate.
R24's mother should have kept her fuckin legs closed! Stupid whore.

R26, what is wrong with what r24 wrote? I'm 100% pro-choice, and I see nothings wrong with the post. The women I know who had abortions didn't take the decision lightly and consulted multiple sources of information in order to make an "informed choice." People who have cancer make "informed choices." Anytime a medical procedure is on the table people investigate their options so they can make the best possible choice, i.e. an informed choice. I think you're splitting hairs and reading something nasty or negative into a phrase.
P.S. R24, I call them anti-choice rather than pro-life. It's the counterpart of the terminology we pro-choice folks use.

You can advocate being pro life, yet understand that it is ultimately the woman's decision, and be pro choice as well.

It has nothing to do with permission. That is not what I meant at all. It has to do with being aware of risks involved in different medical procedures. Maybe you're unaware that women still have to go to doctors to have abortions. Any procedure involving anesthesia and anything invasive carries risks for the patient.

R32, calm down. Most abortions take place when the embryo (not fetus, not baby) is a cluster of cells no bigger than a couple of millimeters wide. A cluster of undifferentiated cells. Late term abortions are extremely rare and horrific for the women involved who have been forced into an impossible medical situation from which there is no other escape. Get the fuck over yourself.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||11/10/2012|
r33 what do you mean by "women involved who have been forced into an impossible medical situation from which there is no other escape"?
That is one of the most anti-feminist statements I've encountered here. Women are not helpless victims being 'forced into' having late-term abortions. Come on.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||11/10/2012|
What I mean, R34, is that most women facing late term abortions have received a diagnosis that means either they, the fetus, or both will not survive a full term pregnancy. A woman carrying a wanted child she planned to deliver must then endure a harrowing procedure she neither wanted nor sought. Said woman is not a "helpless victim". I don't know where you got that.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||11/10/2012|
I personally know someone who had a late term abortion r35, and she didn't fit your description. Most women who have them are not in the predicament you describe. Some are, but not most.

r37, this article is old, but brings up the salient points. They say that most women who get late term abortions are poor and couldn't pay for them earlier.
So not everyone is like the woman in the article you linked.
I agree with their final statement:
And the question is not which of these alternatives is more unpleasant, but whether the government should be making the decision.

"Informed decision" is such right wing pap. Stop trying to look reasonable to unreasonable people by using their loaded language.
If it's no one elses decision but hers, it matters not a bit that her decision be informed or for any good reason at all. It can be the worst and most selfish decision she'll ever make. She can do it because she thought she'd get a free donut afterwards. Maybe she was bored.

No. It does demean women when you say they might get abortions in order to get free donuts.
