Feminism and Abortion-for-Convenience

The following ads were put on the New York City subway system. For more information on the ad campaign, go here. Naturally, some feminists went ballistic.

In response to the feminists who hated the ads, Lori Ziganto wrote this piece entitled: "Feminists Rejoice at Idea of Abortion for Convenience" with the tag line. "They are also anti-women."
Feminists rejoice at the idea of abortion for convenience. They are also anti-woman. Most of us realize that the whole “safe, legal and rare” thing that pro-abortion advocates spout is lip service only. But, if you ever had any doubt, this should set that doubt aside once and for all. . . .
A very mild ad, indeed. And an accurate one; abortion does change you. While feminists sneer at the idea of post-abortion syndrome, it does exist. And if they actually cared about women, they’d admit that fact and would stop encouraging women to have abortions without disclosing the trauma that can occur to the woman.

It’s clear that they don’t care about the dead babies, but they also need to stop insisting that they are For Women ™ , when they most obviously are not. You see, feminists, an unborn baby is not just a clump of cells. Many women who abort their babies, therefore, suffer intense pain and immense guilt. Their entire lives.

They may just be nutty wing nuts to you, but they are real people with true feelings. Because you do nothing but sneer at those feelings, in fact lie about their very existence, your For The Women card is hereby pulled. You are more concerned with one Supreme Court case, that you constantly use as a wedge and a pawn, than you are with actual women.

In response to the ad, Ziganto notes that some feminists defaced the poster by adding the words "Now I can go to college and fulfill my dreams" after the words "Abortion changes you." She is not amused:
Want to go to college, but there is a pesky baby growing inside of you? Abort! A life is far less important than your co-ed fun and career plans, right? Your dreams are all that matters, baby be damned. Can’t let that get in the way! Follow President Obama’s thinking and don’t let yourself be “punished with a baby
