Fetuses are children
It’s a fetus until birth. At birth, it becomes sentient.
Children are sentient, conscious, subjective and bodily autonomous people. Fetuses are not.
We need to worry about the born children who are suffering now, rather than worrying about fetuses that don’t have the capacity to suffer.
Fetuses suffer just as much as people after birth do when you kill them, they feel pain, they know what’s happening
That’s absolute hogwash fed to you by pro-life liars and biased doctors who “fudged” numbers, and that’s giving them credit.
Fetuses don’t feel pain until the third trimester, if that. It’s highly likely they can’t feel pain because they are a) unconscious (yes, hey become conscious at birth) and b) the uterus probably keeps them anesthetized until birth.
Most abortions happen in the first trimester.
Have some UNBIASED information!
x - Journal of the American Medical Association on fetal pain.
x - Brain Review: The Importance of Awareness for Understanding Fetal Pain
x - The Emergence of Human Consciousness
x - Fetuses don’t have the ability to differentiate between sensation and pain until the 35th week.
x - Fetal Pain is Horse Hockey: The Study
x - Whole Freakin’ WIki on Fetal Pain, and they cite all the research that the fetus, is likely, to be anesthetized until birth.
TL;DR You’re misinformed and wrong.

!!!!! So here for this!
i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism.
all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out.
here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:
from top to left to right:
KEEP CLEAN 保持清潔，APPLE 蘋果，ONION 洋蔥，GRAPE 葡萄，CHAIR 椅子，TOMATO 番茄
traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.
it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.”
lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english.
she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english.
just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries.
let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.
this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day.
if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?
i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay.
i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media.
as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world.
feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality.

DailyPBO: The President & The Standing Rock Sioux Reservation - June 2014The crowd to President Obama: “We love you President Obama! You’re our hero!”President Obama: “I love you back!”Obama became only the fourth sitting president to visit an Indian reservation. Attending with the First Lady, it was a truly inspiring event at the Cannon Ball Pow Wow Grounds in Cannon Ball, North Dakota. The Native American community was bursting with pride over the president’s visit and when he spoke Lakota during his speech, they were completely moved. It was a wonderful day for a community that never (and I mean NEVER) gets the respect they deserve. Bravo, Mr. President.For more reactions, check the Twitter hashtag: #PrezRezVisit
Only the fourth? Of ALL the sitting presidents that have come and gone? Dang.
