DU Advises "Seventeen" Magazine
FROM DU: Advice For A Letter I'm Sending To Seventeen Magazine
Okay, the most recent issue of Seventeen magazine had an article called "My Mom Forced Me to Have an Abortion" and I wanna say that it's tragic that anyone would be forced to have an abortion, but it could potentially mislead girls into thinking that all abortions cause pain and heartbreak, which in reality, the most commonly reported feeling after having an abortion is relief.
This is what i have so far:"I'm writing about "My Mom Made Me Get an Abortion" from the September issue. First off, let me start by saying I think it's very sad that Christy was forced to do anything. No woman should ever be forced to have an abortion or have a child. That being said, the only issue I have with this story is the fact that it could potentially mislead girls and women into thinking that all abortions end with the woman being heartbroken and depressed.
The most common feeling after having an abortion is relief."I need y'all's help. Any advice about sentance structure, content, etc would be GREATLY appreciated. (tinfoil tiaras)
This post from DU has left me so unutterably... sad. I can't believe anyone would really think this. I'm just itching to ask this gal how old she is--and I'm hoping she's simply very, very young...
Was I ever that unmindful of life? Noooo... I wasn't: I often used 2-3 kinds of birth control at the same time, just to be extra safe.
However, "Tinfoil tiaras" isn't upset about the early pregnancy. She's not even particularly concerned that this girl was forced against her will (if the article is to be believed) she's certainly not bothered by the abortion! No, this erstwhile member of the Party of Compassion is most concerned with the fact that Seventeen magazine might've created a false impression!
Well, we can't have that! We can have kids having sex in middle school and the needless ending of a human life--but we can't have Seventeen not accurately depicting an experience! There's just GOT to be 'truth in advertising' in this day and age--yessiree!
Shoot, this girl couldn't even raise guppies in a pail o' water with a mindset like that. Some people need to be on perpetual birth control!
