Marcotte Compares Abortion to Cavity Removal, Calls Babies ‘Time-Sucking Monsters’

Pro-lifers are liars, ‘anti-choice kooks.’

Lest there be any doubt, Amanda Marcotte really hates pro-lifers. In a two-part rant posted March 14 and 17 on Raw Story, the morally challenged feminist writer attacked pro-lifers as “consummate liars,” “anti-choice kooks” with “boring,” “half-baked nonsense” and “shit arguments.”

But Marcotte’s hate doesn’t stop at pro-lifers. It extends to the babies they want to protect.

“Either way, what she [the woman]wants trumps the non-existent desires of a mindless pre-person that is so small it can be removed in about two minutes during an outpatient procedure. Your cavities fight harder to stay in place.” Did she just compare an unborn child to a cavity?

Marcotte then goes on a seriously mature rant about the reasons she does not want a child: “ I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding. No matter how much free day care you throw at women, babies are still time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness.”

On the topic of adoption, Marcotte sums up her feelings simply:  “Adoption? Fuck you, seriously.” That’s a heck of an argument.

Marcotte then argues against forced adoption, “forcing women to donate babies is reprehensible.” Wait, since when did the U.S. have required adoptions?

Abortion is a no-brainer choice for Marcotte: “This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion.” She calls a growing life to “a lentil-sized, brainless embryo that has half a chance of dying on its own anyway.”

Marcotte saved more snide remarks for conservatives in her follow-up piece on Mar. 17:

“Frankly, the more traditional, conservative argument against abortion—no, they’re not going to lift a finger to help you with your unwanted baby and you should have thought about that before fucking, you stupid slut who deserves to suffer—at least has the refreshing scent of honesty to it.”

Marcotte is a pro-abortion zealot who called Wendy Davis’s turn about in support of 20-week ban in Texas “a betrayal.” She’s called first trimester abortion a “relatively minor medical procedure that hardly merits the term “surgery,” Last year, she had no problem demonizing the NRA as the “domestic abuse lobby.” But abortion -- the ultimate familial violence -- is just swell.
