After a run in with an angry man on a flight, a feminist who only identified herself as ‘Lana’, probably because she was scared to identify herself truthfully, reports that she had an abortion after realizing that she was pregnant with… of all things… a boy.
Lana writes about her experience on Injustice Stories, which has put her on the receiving end of blistering criticism and several death threats.
“Lana” (in parentheses because we can’t be sure of her real name) reports that she falsely screamed ‘Assault’ on a plane when a fellow passenger expressed disapprovingly when she revealed that she was on the flight to San Francisco to participate in an Occupy Wall Street rally. After contemplating continuing the lie to flight attendants and staff, the woman calling herself Lana, had what appears to be her best thought of the day, when she told them the truth and admitted that the man had not struck her.
After being told by flight staff that they were unable to force the man to move from his assigned seat, Lana states that she decided from that moment on that she “could no longer depend on men to be an ally of the cause.” And, in case you are wondering just what exactly the ‘cause’ might be in this convoluted web of self-deceit, Lana tells us that it is “feminism.”
And, as if that twisted labyrinth of rational wasn’t enough, Lana then tells us that after deciding that all men are enemies and monsters, she then learned from her doctor that she had become pregnant. What was the first reaction of our heroine? Immediately she decided that, “my body had betrayed me even worse than the misogynistic suit jockey on the airplane so many months before. I was in shock, I started crying, weeping at the thought of what I was about to curse the world with.”
So what action did she decide to take? Lana had an abortion because, “I couldn’t bring another monster into the world. We already have enough enemies as it is.” She explains further, “I knew what I had to do.”
Does she now regret this? She emphatically says, “No” that she has no regrets for the abortion and was “happy” feeling that her decision and subsequent decision to abort was a “positive,” saying, “It went off without a hitch. My body’s betrayal was no more, I was free, and for the first time since the airplane incident, I felt strong. I had done something positive, something that would actually make a difference, something good, even though as I would find out, many others wouldn’t see it that way.”
She raged on in her post after a male driver asked her if she was alright on the way home. He noticed her being visibly upset.
“I couldn’t bring another monster into the world. We already have enough enemies as it is. It didn’t matter that I would be raising a son, he would still come into contact with boys, men, perhaps even the suit jockey who would inevitably twist his carefully constructed upbringing with their kindness. He would think ‘These men aren’t so bad, why would mom say that they are holding me down?’ Not all men are bad, my driver showed genuine concern for my well-being that day and I may have taken my anger out on him. That may have been uncalled for. But I knew what I had to do.”
In a follow-up post by Lana on the site, she defends having the abortion… even saying a baby boy was the worst thing in the world.
“If the curse returns, I would do the exact same thing all over again.”
