I have been subscribed to Angie on YouTube since before all this abortion stuff, she has some really good videos about all sorts of atheism relevant stuff! :D Plus she's one of the few females who make atheist videos for YouTube. So I love her. ;)http://www.youtube.com/user/AngieAntiTheist
She's also here are Think Atheist of course too, so you can friend her if you want:http://www.thinkatheist.com/profile/AngietheAntiTheist
She's now, according to her Think Atheist profile, "http://www.thinkatheist.com/video/abortion-1
She shared via YouTube that she was going to have an abortion... and was going to be live tweeting it. And she did!
I hope most of you know what I'm talking about. If not there has been quite a bit of media coverage and you can look through Angie's videos starting with "Abortion" and moving through the next few ones she posted for more info. You can check her out on twitter and backtrack and see all her tweets - she links to her twitter account in the video description.
Anyway, I was looking through links Angie posted on twitter and somehow ended up here at Jill Stanek's anti-abortion blog (specifially at her articles about Angie):http://www.jillstanek.com/archives/2010/02/live_tweeting_a_4.html
And the articles are just SO anti-choice and distort Angie's story HORRIBLY, and 95% of the comments are pro-life and scary. I feel like they need some pro-choice commenters to get at least 1 of them to think a little bit about some of what they're saying. But I can't even figure out how to comment - can someone here figure out how to comment there? If so, can you leave a good pro-choice comment and also tell me how to comment? LOL.
I think it's just what is needed over there. Some pro-choice comments. Non-christian pro-choicers if possible.
By the way this is who Jill Stanek is: http://www.jillstanek.com/who-do-they-think-i-am.html
Ah now what category does this fall under... I think it comes down to what you believe an embryo is exactly and that is part of scientific discussions as well as medicine because of what abortion is - a medical procedure. So I'm putting this in the Science: Evolution, Cosmology, Medicine, etc. category of discussion. I almost put it into Political Zoo but even though it is a political issue, I don't think it SHOULD be a political issue... so I'm not categorizing it that way.
