This Post Is Brought To You By A New Mexico Billboard

Note: This post will involve the topic of abortion & about taking into consideration all aspects of what two people may want and going from there. This is NOT a discussion about abortion nor do I care to see it become one. We all have our views & we should respect them so play nice.

__________________________________________________________________________________

No one likes to talk about it out loud but we all have an opinion on it. You know what I'm talkin' about. Abortion. I usually tend to stay away from discussing it with people because I'm a firm believer in pro-choice. I'm not saying it's right or wrong I just think we should have the right to choose.

There are lots of people in my family that don't agree with me, mostly I think it's because we come from a Catholic background and we all know that pretty much anything you do is considered bad or punishable by them there catholics.

I don't know if you guys have read about it but there's a New Mexico dude that put up a ginormous billboard showing him holding an outline of what would be a baby with the words "This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!" on the bottom.

This guys ex-girlfriend is now taking him to court for harassment and violation of privacy, which she's within all her right to do. I get that she's pissed about her business being plastered for all to see & he totally took the douchbag way for doing this but he's angry/hurt that she allegedly aborted his child.

As much as I'm all for women being able to choose what goes on with their bodies, what about what the other genetic donor may want?

I don't know if she actually aborted or not, I think she's claiming she miscarried but lets just assume she aborted for the sake of this post shall we... This dude actually wanted a baby with this girl. Most guys tense up and run for the hills when they're told a girl's pregnant, heck I've heard of some even tossing money in the girls direction, saying 'get rid of it' like it's yesterdays trash. It's rare to find a fella who actually wants a kid, it's even rarer to find a girl who doesn't. There's no winning in situations where two people want different things, especially when it comes to a life.

It's easy to make a decision based on our own personal wants but it no doubt makes it a lot hell of a lot harder when this type of decision has to be made by two people who want the opposite outcome. I don't know if it really matters what a guy has to say when it comes to this but I know that it's not fair to him if you just count him out all together if he wants to be involved.

A few minutes ago I made the mistake of asking Rusty what his opinion was regarding whether or not a guy should have a say in whether his girlfriend has an abortion and this is what went down...

Rusty: "Oh no, you're not getting into this debate are you?"

Me: "Not a debate, just an opinion."

Rusty: *sigh*

Me: "Come on, what do you think?"

Rusty: "I don't know. I mean, I'm not the one that's squeezing a baby out of my vag so I guess it's her decision."

Me: "...ok"

Rusty: "I guess I'd want her to take what I want into consideration too though. Then again I've taken shits as big as babies so..."

Me: "Alright, this conversation just went on 5 seconds longer than it had to."



Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday folks! I hope the talk of abortion & Rusty's bowel movements didnt ruin it too much for ya...

  1. I sort of love the guy, who in a recession!, shells out money to purchase a billboard. That's guts. LOL

    The "I've taken shits bigger than babies" had me laughing...and wondering if Rusty should a)go see a DR or b)should I be contacting Guinness World Records about this?

  2. You're right, if you're a Catholic you're pretty much going to hell no matter what you do! I don't know exactly how I feel about the whole situation, but I think I can boil it down to this most basic statement: Both sides have a valid point. Can I agree with one over the other? Not without all the details. Do I think the situation should've been on a billboard? Hell no.

    Also, I love Rusty's comparison of shit to a baby. Get back to me on his feelings after he's had a kidney stone! ;)

  3. A difficult case, I'm pro choice, but I'm agreeing with Rusty, she should take his opinion into consideration, but then again it's here life that will change the most if she has the kid, especially if she has a feeling he won't stick around!
