The abortion debate isn’t about the unborn; it’s about control

By Che 

This past week, Texas signed into law the most restrictive anti-abortion law there is. The law prohibits terminating a pregnancy after the heartbeat is detected, around the six-week mark.  

Women’s rights groups are up in arms as the future of Roe v. Wade is in grave jeopardy. On the other hand, pro-life groups are celebrating as the Supreme Court chose not to interfere on the matter, leaving the law to stand. 

Texas, a traditional red state, resisted covid restrictions, mask mandates, and even the teaching of Critical Race Theory in public schools. With this abortion law, it’s clear the state is one of the last bastions of conservative politics.  

In the abortion debate, the left champions women’s rights, in this case her right to control her reproductive system. The right, however, fights for the unborn’s right to life. Both have their perspectives in relation to their agenda, however the ultimate agenda supersedes both sides of the aisle. 

First, I find it odd that another “my body, my choice” issue has been brought to the forefront at a time when the left’s mantra jumped the aisle and became the chant for those against the forced masking and vaxxing of American citizens. The timing is all too coincidental. 

It’s almost like a public chess game being played out in the media, the right used their “my body, choice” slogan against them in the face of mask and vaccine mandates. If feminists can argue a woman’s body means her choice, then all Americans can use the same argument to remain unvaccinated. Check.  

The fact that this case made its way to the forefront now demonstrates that the vaccine is more important than anything. It’s almost as if they’re throwing it to the forefront to be debated and used against the “anti-vaxxers”. “Your body, your choice” when it comes to limiting government’s access to the individual’s body, but not when it comes to abortion? 

It’s as if the objective is to indirectly influence the narrative to rebut vaccine hesitancy. But then again, maybe I’m just a conspiracy theorist, what do I know? 

Conspiracy theories aside, the abortion issue has more to do with controlling you than a woman’s right to choose. Abortion has been accused of being a depopulation tool, a burden on taxpayers, and an abomination against God. There’s truth in all these theories, but the objective is much simpler and more destructive to our society.  

Abortion is another outgrowth of what we’ve become: weak. We don’t like struggle, we complain about the fundamentals of life, and we never take responsibility for our actions. That’s where the abortion schism intersects, because the crux of the issue is the lack of responsibility.  

The mainstream narrative says the debate centers around a woman having the right to choose to have her baby or abort it due to a host of possible reasons. This is misleading because most pregnancies are a result of consensual sex. The overwhelming majority of abortions were from pregnancies resulting from consensual sex. 

I know there’s an argument to be made for abortions in case of incest and rape, but this is not what this is about. It’s not even about solely aborting babies. It’s about promoting a lack of accountability in our culture. 

At the end of the day, we all have choices. Adults are supposed to be competent enough to make the choice of whether to have sex with another adult. We all understand that precautions can fail and the result of which could be an unwanted pregnancy. 

Instead of teaching our young to be selective and careful about making these kinds of life-altering decisions, we give them a readymade excuse.  

The problem with this kind of thinking is that it only further encourages bad behavior. You can do something you regret and be given a pass to do it over and over. We make a mess and don’t want to clean it up. When this thought process proliferates unchecked, it carries over into other areas of our lives. 

If you don’t want to take responsibility for what comes with sex, why should you take responsibility for anything? Don’t want to work, why should you? The government should just give you money because responsibility affects your mental health.  

This thinking is along the same lines as the racism narrative. The objective there isn’t to have a “national conversation on race,” it’s to give people of color an excuse, thereby causing, even if only subconsciously, them not to exert themselves to the best of their ability. 

The same goes with the “mental health” topic, where quitting is acceptable if one says it’s in the name of “mental health.” As we refuse to take responsibility for our own lives, it leads us into the hands of someone who will.  

That is the true reason for these narratives. They’re to create a power vacuum in an individual’s life who will then be forced to relinquish control to none other than the government and their corporate overlords. That’s it. 

They don’t care about “women’s rights” or “people of color” or “LGBTQ+ people.” What they do care about is if you’ll buy their narratives. If so, you’ll accept the fact that due to your race, gender, or sexual preference, you won’t survive in this world. Therefore, you need someone or something outside of yourself to bear that burden. The government will gladly fill that paternal role you’re seeking.  

Abortion is a cop out, plain and simple. The majority of abortions aren’t for reasons like rape and incest. Those cases are few and far between. What it is used for is to give people a way out of dealing with their actions. 

You can have as much irresponsible sex as you want because you have a safety net. You can have the right to a “do over” while at the same time take no precaution as to the type of person you choose to lay down with. Once you get into the false sense of security that someone will run to your aid when you make a mistake, you’ll operate recklessly because the “daddy government” will bail you out.  

We’re living in dangerous times where the power elite are scrambling to accrue more control. They’re trying to find every possible angle to get you to comply with their agenda and using a lack of accountability to do so. When you allow this kind of thinking, you render yourself useless, dependent, and needy towards a more powerful institution.
