Just when you thought the religious right couldn’t get any crazier, with its personhood amendments and its attacks on contraception, here comes the academic left with an even crazier idea: after-birth abortion.
No, I didn’t make this up. “Partial-birth abortion” is a term invented by pro-lifers. But “after-birth abortion” is a term invented by two philosophers, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva. In the Journal of Medical Ethics, they propose:

I have a toxic relationship with my sister.
She gets upset at the smallest of jokes and whenever I f***ing do something she has a panic attack and makes her look like the f***ing victim. She tells me that she can't stand me, she hates me, and I'm gonna be a sad adult.
She's quite manipulative as well. When I try to defend myself, she calls me verbally abusive and shouts that she's a terrible person and I make her wanna die. When my mother ends up getting into our arguments, ... read more
I'm at a loss for what to do with myself. I can't figure out what to do. I've messed up in my relationship by saying things out of insecurity, and now I'm wondering if it is beyond repair. I know my mental struggles, but what good is it to explain it to someone that doesn't quite understand? He says he still loves me, but the feeling between us isn't the same.
There is so much in my life going on, all I feel I can do is gradually nurse myself back to health. I feel like a dyi... read more
So my cousin does nothing but complain on facebook about how she wants a man, a perfect husband, blah blah, but then turns around and jokes about being an alcoholic b**** with a mental disorder that will probably die alone. This girl is 21. As someone with an actual mental illness, and a boyfriend who's family is suffering because of alcohol addiction, I find her so INCREDIBLY offensive. Maybe if she stopped complaining ... read more
I am female, and when I was 7 to 8 years old I was sexually assaulted (orally) by a family memeber at least twice a month. My family always trusted this man, and left me alone with him a lot. For about a year of this going on, he told me that everyone did this, even my family. However, when I was 8, I asked if ... read more
I appreciate everything I have and everything I get to do but I don't want materialistic things. I have so many clothes but those don't make me truly happy; it's the small moments with my family but they don't get that.
My mom leaves me over my grandparents house for 3 days while she goes back home to be with a man then buys me things to make up for it. I don't want that. I want to be with my family. Your drug use and mental issues will be exposed as well as your other lies about why you were fire... read more
I don't know where to begin. highschool was easy, it was just, it was simple. now that I'm 22, my life hasn't gone to where I wanted it to be. I was forced to go to a college I didn't want to go to to learn a job skill I don't like. I work at a job where the favorites are women who sleep with the boss and get away with whatever they want and a boss that doesn't even care about his job. my parents are once again pushing me to do a medical field employment now and I don't want ... read more
I'm scared of marriage because I'm scared of putting up with someone forever because it's tiring and draining! Is that normal? I've seen my parents marriage and my LTR and I know what it's like therefore don't want to get married. It's tough to have someone close to you disrespecting your boundaries and teasing you or bringing up uncomfortable topics. It's embarrassing when you have to explain to friends and family tht y... read more
Feeling kind of pushed aside and sh**y. Just sad. My family is 3000 miles away and celebrating birthdays and visits and I see them on Facebook. My sister in law and I had a falling out so she's out of my circle. husband invited me to choose the next workout challenge to do together and now a friend showed interest so now he's doing the one his friend says he's doing. I guess I can too but he didn't invite me. Just said ... read more
I want to vent to my online friends but I know that they'll just get annoyed again.
I hate the horrors that this world is filled with and it breaks my heart and makes me want to die that I was born with a lifelong conditions (aspergers) which will put me at a disadvantage because I can't enjoy the fruits of neurotypical privilege, people who can actually make friends in real life and not deal with it, and my family is o... read more
When i was four my dad choked me, I am 14 now and it just started to haunt me constantly. I can't stop thinking about it. My family has always had problems, my dad was abusive to my mother but stopped. My mom kicked my dad about 8 months ago. I really miss him and i wish i could take back everything i did wrong. like answering the door to the cops, my mom talks bad about him all the time but I'm started to wonder if it w... read more
The more I am with my dad the more I do not want to be around him. He is a toxic person and has admitted to me that he LIKES to yell at others because it makes him feel better. So as a result he yells at us all the time for no damn reason. And to be honest, I used to be like that to, but I noticed that it is unhealthy and am trying to stop. He also is very controlling and if I do not think like him or have a different opinion I am immediately labeled an idiot and I do not kno... read more
