In a few hours, Sam is hitting the road to begin the tour. But before he leaves, Mike and Nick join him to talk about some interesting news in the last few days, and catch up on emails. Additionally, we talk with Sunsara Taylor of Equal Time for Freethought on WBAI, about the upcoming Abortion Rights Freedom Ride.
We got some emails in direct response to this episode.
After the show, we received two emails from Alexis in Tacoma. They’re included here without edits, and we invite Ask an Atheist listeners to respond in the comments.
Hi. I got stuck listening to ask an atheist at my dads house because that
was on. I called about abortion. The guy totally talked AT me and
interrupted me a lot. I had the pill abortion and was encouraged to wait
til the baby gets bigger and get a surgical. Idk if they make more money
that way. I believe women should have the right to choose within a month of
their missed period. So that they can get the miscarriage pill and not let
the baby get bigger to where a doctor jabs scissors in a big baby’s neck
and sucks out their brains. I’ve heard on the news and read in court papers
about doctors having to strangle aborted babies to death because the saline
doesnt work sometimes. It isn’t very well documented and what is documented
is horrid! All I got was the pill abortion and I get suicidal a lot.
How about unbiased counseling before we let moms get abortions? I’ve gotten
psychotic over mine. I don’t ever want a funeral. I don’t deserve one. My
dead babies never got one. I will jump off a bridge when that time cones
and hopefully my burial is as un proper as the babies I aborted. Did u ever
think abortions fuck with your head? Wtf!?
You love abortions and I hope someone strangles u to death or saws ur body
into bits and pieces when u die. A lot of successful people have been
aborted. How can u hate them so much and love the idea of destroying their
Alexis, “I called about abortion”
If u really want to know, I think people that get late abortions and don’t
regret should get abortions! They have to be terrible people to go that far
anyway and would make bad parents!
I was at the abortion clinic to get mine and there was a girl getting the
surgical telling me how long it took her to decide. She was at the clinic
for the two day procedure and had a big pregnant belly at cedar rivers
Ask an atheist is an asshole.
Women shouldn’t have the right to choose for so damn long it should be if u
don’t decide in 8 weeks u are gonna have the baby whether you like it or
People are so fucked up.
