    Let me start by saying that most of the claims made by these natalist radicals is bullshit. But a few of the claims they make are accurate. The condom use statistics, for example, are true depending on what the word "correctly" means: estimates by the CDC show that typical male condom failure rate is 18%, whereas female condoms have a failure rate of 21%. Given these estimates, a 1 in 5 failure rate is spot on, even though "perfect use" (which is unrealistic and done under laboratory conditions) has a significantly lower failure rate of 2%.

    believing part of the fetus can end up in the lungs just shows what the lack of sex ed and proper science classes do

    No. If you are against abortion the only thing you should be doing is service in areas of helping mothers and children needing support.

    So abortion clinics get bombed and violently targetted all the time but not these places? Is it because no one has thought to? Not that I am of course suggesting someone does. But like why hasn't ANYONE bombed one of these places, which of course would be absolutely terrible if that happened.

  11. Stephen2462

    Stephen24626 days ago

    Because pro-choicers aren't violent like that, and have the sense to know it would only garner sympathy for such places in the long run.

    To be clear, according to recent polls, about 50 % of American are ok with "legal" murder. Am I understanding that correctly?

    @Dante800 Was referring to abortion which is capital punishment without due process.

    I don't condone deception as a means to prevent abortion but killing babies is even more morally abhorrent. Here's an idea - if you don't want the responsibility of caring for a child - don't fuck. This goes for women and men. And in the cases of rape and incest put the child up for adoption. The child doesn't deserve to die because of the actions of a deviant rapist.

    @Stephen2462 The fact that you think there's a difference is your problem. It's human life regardless of its developmental stage.

    Nobody's killing babies lol, your inability to distinguish between a baby and a fetus is your problem.

    " It doesn't register with reality"...hmmm...women ARE being actively manipulated in these centers. My own experience is that what these centers really are is fronts for Christian adoption agencies. They have no desire to actually help you figure out how to KEEP your baby. It's a bait and switch sales pitch....they say they are alternatives to abortion, which would be fine if they actually wanted to provide resources to give a woman hope that she could keep her baby, but they only want you to have your baby so you can give your baby up to the agency they recommend. I walked out and figured it out myself, because they were no help. Definitely gave out nonsense information and terrible advice. Thanks, John Oliver. More people need to see this and really take it in.

    A fun story for ppl who want to know how unqualified CPC's are: My mom is an OBGYN radiologist. She has been in the field for 30+ yrs and specialises in hi-risk pregnancy and women's health. She is exceptionally well known and liked throughout all of the OBGYN physicians in the area/state. Needless to say, she is extremely educated in her field and passionate about what she does. I went on a college tour with her. After the tour was over, we stayed to talk with the admissions office about some stuff. It just so happened that another woman was staying back too. She and my mother started speaking. Come to find out, this woman also worked- or as she put it "volunteered"- at a women's health office. My mom asked her what healthcare affiliation does it have, i.e. what hospital or public office does it affiliate with. The woman claims that this clinic is private (which doesn't make sense since there would still have to be an affiliation for insurance and service coverage). She then proceeds to talk about how she performs ultrasounds on pregnant women. She then asks the stupidest question- "how do you tell the sex of the child?". For the first time in my life, my mother was dumbfounded. She kindly asks if she should know that in the first place. She says that she isn't trained in women's health, and was a former Catholic teacher. She took an "online course" and "learned through experience". My mom proceeds to tell her that the sex of the child can't really be physically seen until about 16 weeks- 12 at the earliest. The woman continues to try to compare her work to my moms, that somehow her experience and lack of education equates to my mom's demanding job. I jutted in at whenever it was appropriate since I have learned a lot about women's health through my mom's coworker's and own testimony. I just couldn't believe that I was talking with somebody that doesn't understand the dangers of performing women's health. Anyone with a relative or is in the OBGYN field- or even in a medical profession- knows that you are liable for somebody's life and that you have to learn how to phrase out diagnosis properly. I just couldn't believe that somebody this unqualified and naive has the same level of importance in a woman's life as my mother's education. Another side note: My mom works in the greater Hartford area and Western Mass. So this episode hits close to home... I also can guarantee you that every professional women's health medical office provides prenatal and parental services. I also can guarantee you that those pamphlets are plastered all over the billboard in each exam room :)😂

    I agree it’s wrong to lie and deceive but I think most people over simplify this issue. There are pregnancy clinics that do good works and I don’t feel this segment is a fair representation of the complexity of the issue. Most of the time John does a fantastic job but this video is misrepresenting because of the poor behavior of a few clinics and organizations.

  43. LeetVajda

    It isn't emotional manipulation to inform women of the decision they are making to terminate a fetus. What is worse, an informed woman has an emotional reaction based on the condition and development of the organism within them? Or a woman is uninformed about the situation, but avoids emotional reaction?

    It’s not “informing a women” if you’re lying. The emotional manipulation plus lies to get people to follow their agenda when they want an abortion.

    Isn't that the signs of Satan's manipulative behavior on Earth. Lying?! If I was told to have a baby when I didn't want to I would send all of my child's bills and my medical and mental health bills in life to the center that told me to have the child.Id suevif they refused. They would babysit and the child needs an education ànd music lessons. The CPC's should be all the way invested.

    Most of my family have been anti-abortion Christian types. they are not bad people. they seem to equate abortion to the image of a toddler being shredded by a lawn mower. nothing is more horrifying really, esp if you picture it as your own child. somehow, in their mind, they cant separate that image from the act of terminating even a first trimester pregnancy. they aren't crazy enough to condemn birth control tho. who the fuck are those people?

  52. ValerieRaya

    ValerieRaya19 days ago

    That is the experience I made with most. They are indoctrinated, don't know much about the subject aside from propaganda, and don't want to think too much about it, lest they also become 'baby murderers'. Most aren't bad people. They may do bad things (like opposing safe abortion) but they only do it because they don't know better. Some are rotten to their core, though.

    Millenials and younger both men and women are way to promiscuous. THAT'S way it'd such a HUGE deal. Keep it in your pants and don't spread your legs just because "it feels good". Everyone knows it feels good. Control your crotches. It's NOT THAT HARD. How this got so accepted is ridiculous. ( Being pregnant with no visible means of support) We are sick of this shit.

  54. ValerieRaya

    ValerieRaya19 days ago

    Nope. Millennials have fewer abortions than baby boomers. The numbers of abortion have been over 300 per 1000 live births from 1976 to 1996 when the oldest millennial was 15 if anything. Ever since they have been steadily declining and are now under 200. Why? Because millennials and Gen Z are more sex-positive and have the internet to educate us when the school's sex-ed fails us.

    @Murky I am so sorry to hear what you have been through. My friend Ed who was an alter boy was raped by a priest. We were in our 30's when he finally told me. He never mentioned religion to me either. (on Long Island). I am friends with a Nun (Dominican Sisters) and I know that they too have problems with Priests; The Nuns are treated like underlings and they are not happy at all about it. Plus they of course know what goes on. God Bless

    @W and S I was born and raised Roman Catholic. I mean my faith definitely waivered when I was sexually assaulted at age 11, and by the time I was molested at age 14 I was a full atheist. My later studies of the KJV at a later age trying to reclaim my faith turned nowhere when I checked earlier translations only to find that KJV is a political mistranslation (I care a lot about history and historical accuracy). Your sexual education should have included what sex is (mine did) and to be aware of STDs and what they are and what they do (mine sadly did not). More comprehensive sexual education would explain such a thing, so that parents are no longer required to explain sex, and it can more consistently inform a wide variety of people. Sex is largely fine. Even with my traumatic history, I stand by this sentiment. As long as it is done consensually between parties that understand the risks, there is no reason to arbitrarily restrict others exercising a basic human instinct. Also uh, sure. In a vacuum, shame isn't emotionally abusive. I feel shame for things I know to be wrong. However, when shame is used as a tool to control (e.g. slut-shaming), it is emotionally abusive.

    @Murky Well I guess that's gone with the wind ,also. In the 6th or 7th grade my mother and I had to watch a movie at school that explained about the sperm and the egg. (before menstruation). When we got home, in the car, the big question came; But how does it happen?" My mother had to explain hOW (intercourse). Thought it was the most disgusting thing I ever heard. It was impressed upon us that this is after marriage. My girlfriend and I looked it up in the bible (King James.) and there it was. Before Marriage it is "fornication". I know this is all bull shit to you, but I am a democrat raised Catholic, RC and so far there has been none of that illegitimate BS in my family. And emotional abuse is different from shame.

  58. Murky

    Murky21 day ago

    So how about extensive, comprehensive Sexual Education that informs kids about the severe commitment of pregnancy. Have Medical professionals explain the medical costs of pregnancies and maybe even social workers explain the social costs, and to rightfully advise against such an extreme decision such as wanting to have kids, until you're in a safe and stable position. Education is what will fix that, not emotional abuse about pre-marital sex.
