We did a reverse image search to try to confirm where this photo came from and to see if it was, hopefully, a Photoshop. We found it posted on Reddit and 4chan, but it wasn’t a 4chan prank — the people on 4chan were equally disgusted by it. And judging by the girls’ “My Body, My Choice” T-shirts, the whole thing looks legit, and that’s scary and sad.
By “parasites” they mean unborn babies in the womb.
This is truly despicable… pic.twitter.com/0TuGX0taeU

Sadly, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the idea that human embryos, wanted or unwanted, are parasites feeding off of their host mother; we’re on Twitter all day and more people than you’d believe buy into that argument — as long as that umbilical cord is attached, that thing is a parasite.
So tragic to see these young ladies actually believe this.

Look at how young these girls are – to have this mindset

Look at the smiles on their faces. They have been completely duped by our culture. It's quite sad.

Can’t wait for their future children to see their moms in this picture ?
— ???? ????? ?????? ????? (@RaraAvis22) May 22, 2019
God have mercy. What will their children think 10 years down the road when they see their mom holding a sign like this?
— Court girl (@sistersleuth) May 22, 2019
Mom will just tell them she was fighting for their right to have a parasite removed from their bodies if they choose.
Imagine raising kids this evil and ignorant.https://t.co/cjz87F6hM1

You need some strong cognitive dissonance to justify abortion to yourself I guess. It’s a very sad story not something to be proud about.

Apparently they don’t know much about science either
— Jamie Robinson (@JamesRobinsjg01) May 22, 2019
Apparently this is what they’re teaching in college level science classes. I saw a post the other day saying a college professor compared a zygote to a parasite in class, with power point and all. Satan clearly has hold of our young women, as he did to us who were raised in 60’s

They say they use science and yet they will call the unborn child a parasite. A parasite by science definition needs to be a different species than it’s host. The unborn is a human organism just like it’s parents. So it can’t be a parasite. So it does deserve equal rights to us.

I had this argument with someone. Even if you grant them that it is a parasite: 1. it's still a living being 2. Since it's living, what race or class of living organism is it? It can only be human.

I had a doctor call my baby a parasite at 37 weeks pregnant. I still can’t get over it.

That's horrible and disgusting! I'm so sorry this happened to you…
— Becka Creed (@icanonlybreathe) May 22, 2019
But if you are kind enough to let it live off you for 9 months, bam! When it comes out of the birth canal it’s transformed into a baby! Because science.

Do you suppose they realize that this picture will follow them their entire lives?

they should say this to women who have had miscarriages if this is the case.
— emma (@Emma_Jagha) May 22, 2019
They must not have carried a child in their womb. So much deception in the pro-abortion movement. Same people who would refer to a "clump of cells" found on Mars as life. Thank you for being a bold vessel for God for the sanctity of life.??❤️??

This 'my body, my choice' approach seems hugely oversimplified.
They have the choice to respect their bodies enough to use contraception… That's a valid alternative.

May God forgive them ?

For me, this is the abortion debate boiled down to its starkest terms. A species that views a future generation as merely parasitical has no future. https://t.co/8bEf4lM4uv

There is a lot of ethical, intellectual, and scientific denial going on within the pro choice movement.
The reality of abortion is masked by sanctimonious red herring outrage and euphemisms.

This is probably one of the saddest things I’ve seen on @Twitter .

Dehumanizing others is how atrocities occur, and these women are oblivious. Just simply oblivious of their message.

You know the end is near when humans call their own offspring parasites that need to be exterminated

I wonder if they still depend on mom and dad for money for clothes and food, like they did when they were still in school, like they did when they were still in the womb.

Those are the same people who expect others to provide them with basic needs, health care and college tuition.

But remember, Alyssa Milano insists that “nobody wants to get an abortion,” and “we are all pro-life.” Nobody’s pro-abortion, right?
Just AWFUL! NYMag writer RANTS at Alyssa Milano for not being MORE extreme in her ‘pro-abortion’ activism and YIKES https://t.co/RiL0Fy6Lt4
