something to honk about

loius ck is abortion taking a shit or murdering babies?

I think Louis CK is hilarious, and really dark, really macabre, but funny as hell. I appreciate comedy so much. I think it is very therapeutic to laugh at difficult or confusing or even sad issues and events. And as we say at my house, “It’s funny because it’s true.”

It would be really great if people on the right and the left of the American political spectrum could make more of an effort to see the opposing viewpoint. Abortion is a great example because people feel so strongly, so completely convicted, that their opinion is the “right” one. Which is just absurd. No one is right when it comes to abortion.

If you talk about babies that are already born, everyone agrees you can’t kill them, that’s murder. But half of people think it’s okay to get rid of a fetus if it is under a certain number of weeks in the pregnancy. It’s not really okay, it’s definitely not great. So half of people think it’s okay to deny mother’s the right to make that choice for themselves. Which is not really okay, it’s definitely not great. There is just too many cases where the mother needs to have that choice available to her and make the choice herself. But half of people legit think that is murdering babies, so I can understand why they feel so strongly about the issue. So nobody is “right” when it comes to abortion.

That’s why this Louis CK bit is so funny. It’s funny because it’s true.

    Louis CK really hammers the point that “life,” both tangible and intangible, is complicated, complex and comprehensive on too many levels, to too many people, to be discussed in simplistic black and white terms.

    I think a good question is whether it’s more humane to have the child or to abort. In many cases if not all, bringing people into this world is gambling with a life especially in today’s environment. You can’t ensure the quality of life a child will have. It’s not like there’s a shortage of people anyway.

    I have to say, clinically – all death of a fetus before reaching full term is by medical definition an “abortion”. I now have online access to my OBGYN records and I was shocked to learn this. In reading my records – in 2009 I had a tubal pregnancy (ectopic) and had to have the pregnancy terminated via methotrexate shots (technically chemo to kill the cells). On my medical history it was noted as an “abortion”. Being that ectopic pregnancies can become life threatening and are NOT viable, I was surprised to see this terminology used. But as I scrolled down through my record, my chemical pregnancy (early miscarriage) in 2012 was also termed “abortion” and my miscarriage at 10 weeks which required a D&C was also coined “abortion”. Just an interesting fact I thought I would share…

      Interesting. I had a first-term misscarriage in 2014. And just yesterday my husband told me that the health clinic is giving him access to his medical records online. That’s new! I wonder what is in mine…
