 The rhetoric and mysogyny in this election are just disgusting–and baffling. So much of it is based in absolutely false claims. 

This whole part of the debate enraged me, but I was SO GLAD to hear Hillary speak up for women’s health and rights. While I’ve never been her biggest fan, it made me proud to say I’m With Her.

Ugh I am with you. When he was talking about taking baby out the day before its due date, I was screaming “That’s called childbirth, not an abortion you idiot!!” 

I will say, I gained a lot of respect for Hillary. Her answers were fantastic, especially her defense of late term abortion. People seem to think that a woman waits seven months and then decides she doesn’t want it. NO!! She makes the most difficult decision of her life because there’s a serious danger to her or the baby! Ughhh.

I mean, at least be accurate and make the typical pro-life arguments that actually make sense. You don’t just yell about “ripping babies out”.

CakeSniffer :  That just shows how low he can be. The truth is irrelevant to this man.

He was caught out in at least 37 lies last night. He literally believes if you throw enough sh_t at a wall, some of it will stick. I have already had one of his supporters repeat some of his claims to me this am. Like him, she is totally uninterested in the truth.

I’ve seen so much shit all over facebook about slaughtering babies minutes before they’re born and I just want to scream. 

This isn’t an elective procedure for shits and giggles, you morons.

CakeSniffer :  Preach. I really liked Clinton’s answer. And I agree with everything you said. I hate how the anti-choice movement fixates on late term abortions, which are very rare and always done for the health of the woman or extremely serious and often fatal issues with the fetus. Forcing women to carry non-viable fetuses (or ones who will die shortly after birth) against their will is absolutely barbaric.

CakeSniffer :  I was flipping out yelling at the tv last night when he was saying that.  “All these women having abortions 3 days before the due date”… THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN, YOU ORANGE ASSHOLE!  Literally does NOT happen.  Ugh, I am just so disappointed in humanity this past year ๐Ÿ™

Trump was, of course, entirely wrong.  Monstrously wrong.

The US laws on abortion are very clear – they protect the mother’s freedom to choose and yet take account of the baby’s viability.  No one is calling birth at seven, eight or nine months an abortion.  Such an occurrence would only happen if the mother’s life was at risk, the baby was severely damaged or both. 

Personally I don’t like the idea of abortion (it certainly is not to be considered a contraceptive or a lifestyle choice, but a tragedy and often an act of desperation) but I accept it very sadly and reluctantly because I see backstreet abortions, the resulting loss of life and the denegration of pregnant young women as a great evil.

If we wish to prevent unwanted pregnancies in the young we need not only to teach young women confidence and self respect but teach young men to respect and cherish women.  This is entirely at odds with Trump’s so-called ‘locker room talk’ which insults not only young women but young men.

I think Hillary really resonated with a lot of women when she spoke about this during the debate. I think one of her weaknesses is she can often sound over rehearsed, but I think she really spoke from the heart and captured the anguish many women and families go through and how hard those decisions are. Go Hill!

Not to make light of this topic or anything (I’m totally pro-choice and Donald, as usual, infuriated me last night), but…

Do any of you remember those commercials for Esurance where a woman invited her friends over to see her “wall” of photos and then verbally “unfriends” another woman. And then that woman goes “that’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.” Exactly what that part of the debate last night reminded me of. 

Here’s the commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5fn087Jk4I

Trump: saying that they could rip a baby from the uterus literally a day before it’s due date.

Me: rolling my eyeballs so far back in my head in disgust that I wasn’t sure I’d ever get them back to normal again. 

I’m not a huge Hilary supporter (well, I’m Canadian so my opinion doesn’t matter anyway), but I jumped on the Hilary Train during the first debate when she said “I think Donald is accusing me of preparing for tonight’s debate. And do you know what else I prepared for? Being president.”

๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— that!!
