To me, this is one of the most disturbing pro-life arguments: that consent to one particular act equals consent to another.
If you consent to making out with your partner and they pressure you to have sex, it is rape. If you consent to sex using a condom and your partner does not use one, it is rape. If you consent to oral sex and your partner pressures you into intercourse, it is rape.
Consent to one act is not consent to another. Consent is freely given, not out of fear or circumstance. Consent is a continuous yes that can be revoked at any time.
The argument that consent to sex equals consent to pregnancy is creepy rape apologist nonsense that betrays complete ignorance of what consent is and how it works. Please stop.

I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know there’s nothing but light when I see you.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
