The bodily autonomy argument was what convinced me to go from extremely pro-life to pro-choice in a matter of days. You’d have to find a way to convince me that it’s OK to use someone’s body parts without their consent to convince me to be pro-life again.
I can’t find it right now, but there’s a court case establishing that a father does not have an obligation to donate—I think it was bone marrow—to save his child’s life.
And yet we’re supposed to put up with what amounts to forcible donation of our uteruses? Something’s not right there.
I’ve been pro-choice pretty much my whole life, but it wasn’t until maybe five years ago that I heard this particular argument; since then I’ve felt a lot more confident in my stance and have even used this argument against pro-life people who have tried to convince me.
Twins Separated at Birth Find Each Other via YouTube
After Anaïs Bordier, a French student living in London, saw American actress Samantha Futerman in aYouTube video, she noticed a striking resemblance to herself. She found one of Futerman’s personal vlogs about being adopted, leading Bordier to find the two girls had the same birthday. After sending Futerman a Facebook message, the two realized they might be long lost twin sisters. Through Twitter, Skype and Facebook messenger, the girls have been using social media to cactch up on the first 25 years of their lives. They have since launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a documentary about their first meeting, as well as a DNA test to confirm their relation.
This is actually incredible
I freaking love the Internet sometimes
