Regardless of how you feel about the Alabama anti-abortion bill, shouldn’t we all at the very least be able to agree that abortion is never a good thing? Apparently the answer is no.
Last night, Vox Media’s Liz Plank asked all the men out there to share their stories of “how they’ve personally benefited from abortion rights”:
Behind millions of successful men is an abortion they don’t regret getting with their partner. I urge men to go beyond solidarity and talk about how they’ve personally benefited from abortion rights too. Not because it’s the right thing you to do, because it’s true!

If you think that’s sick, consider the fact that some men actually indulged her request. Men like comedian Christian Finnegan:
At 23, a fling with an ex led to a terminated pregnancy. We got back together for a while, but eventually she met the father of her now-adult children and I decided to give standup a go. Just about everything good in my life can be traced back to us not having that child. https://t.co/6AhoraHVzY

Killing an inconvenient child has done wonders for his career! Isn’t that special?

That's actually kind of a selfish tweet.

I'm pretty much pro choice but that is a bit much.

At least he acknowledged that it was a child who died. That’s about the only good thing we can say about his tweet.
lol … 'That one time I dodged responsibility' gtfo

I know! My upstairs neighbor used to make noise all night, so I murdered him and I sleep *SO* much better now. SAMESIES

Glad someone died so you can have the career you wanted.

Everything good in your life required you to ensure another would never have any good things in life, or even any life at all.

I killed someone (or was complicit in it).
I was made better off by killing someone.
So my killing someone was justified.
That, buddy, is some high-level moral reasoning. Nothing selfish, shallow, or laughable about it. No siree.

So murdering your child improved your life. You learned to not take responsibility in the tough times and any future kids you decide to let live will ponder what you may do them out of convenience

Ok I'm game…you're a pathetic murderer, who snuffed out what would have been your child based on relationship status and convenience. 'Just about everything in my life can be traced back to…killing my child'…wow, the depravity it takes to make that statement

No, you made choices you still could have made with a child. Funny I know who Jim Gaffigan is, who has five children, and I have no flipping clue who you are. Children don't ruin lives. Weak people ruin their own lives and blame it on circumstances. You're disgusting. https://t.co/Qkq9il9aWq

I think it’s tragic that you don’t understand how depraved this is.

Wow. You're an awful person. Congrats.
