If you aren't familiar with Lamebook, it's a repository of stupid, amusing, and lame Facebook posts. (If you aren't familiar with Facebook, we have a problem.) On Thursday, Lamebook featured a series of semi-coherent posts by "Kasey," who was facing an unplanned pregnancy. It ends with her deciding, on the advice of her so-called friends, to get an abortion: "THIS BABY DEAD." This original post is likely fake; it's the Lamebook comments section that really caught my attention.
The comments section did contain a few pro-lifers expressing their sadness that someone would be so callous toward an innocent child in the womb. But it also contained some extremely disturbing comments wishing harm upon Kasey. And, overwhelmingly, those comments came from self-proclaimed supporters of the "right to choose." Some examples, with the original spelling (and profanity) preserved:
I’m pro-choice all the way, but if I heard tomarrow Kasey had exsanguinated during her procedure, I’d be a happy woman.
Kasey, I hope you DIAF but I’m glad you are getting an abortion. But, do your best to DIAF as soon as you are done.[Note: DIAF stands for "die in a fire."]
I’m pro-choice, all the way. But girls like this make me sick. Is it so hard to get on the pill you dumb, drunken whore? Instead she uses abortion as a form of birth control. And honestly, the kid is better off being aborted, since she has been drinking like crazy so far. What a pig. I wouldn’t feel one ounce of empathy for her if she died during that abortion. She’s a waste of space.
I’m also pro-choice, but this fucking disgusts me. This bitch should have been aborted instead, fucking self-centered slut. These type of people need to be shot in the face with a shot gun, then their bodies fed to pigs. At least that way they’ll be useful.
Dear Casey – it is idiots like you who make the the prolife crowd seem reasonalbe. I mean seriously, you are much too stupid to understand the gravity of your actions, laughing at having an abortion…seriously? I am not going to say I hope the knife slips, however I do hope you grow the hell up and and feel the pain and loss associated with your decision.
