The Ordinary Adventures of Laurel


Hey there. :) In this blog, I will use emoticons even when trying to maintain a professional serious attitude. You guys need to go ahead and accept that. :P
^See, there I go.

I'm a college student from sunny Florida! I'm finishing up my AA in the next couple of semesters(with any luck!) then starting the training process to become a doula. I love babies, as should be evident by the hundreds of baby pictures I reblog.

Hopefully, I'll one day be able to post pictures of my own babies...if I'm still using Tumblr when I'm old...
Who am I kidding, of course I'll still be using Tumblr when I'm old!

I'm avidly pro-life, so be prepared to be for all that may entail when choosing to follow or unfollow.

I'm a cat person.
I have a ton of food allergies.
I love reading.
I like Dr. Who.
Edward Monkton is a wonderful person and one of my heroes. If you look him up and don't fall in love with him, I'll send you a personal cyber hug and/or look of contempt.
My boyfriend's name is Jared, and he is even more wonderful that Edward Monkton. I'll try to keep the mushiness to a minimum.
I'm simplistic.
I'm somewhere in the spectrum between Catholic and Agnostic.
Insult any religion around me(with the exception of the Westboro Baptist Church) and you will surely earn a grudge so cold you might be at risk of hypothermia.
I'm very tired as I write this.
I have a Schnoodle named Chowder. My parents chose the name. I wanted to name her Toby. Or Chester, since all of the dogs my family has ever owned had names begnning in "Ch".
I am a cupcake baker. I have come up with new recipies in my dreams. I'm not kidding.
I'm delving into feminism. Yes, I am still pro-life. I will be glad to explain why those two go together.
I hate peas.
I love chocolate.
I enjoy people-watching.
I neither love nor hate hipsters. I only bring that up because it seems like everyone has to have at least some opinion of them. Nobody can just not mention them at least once.
I love puns.
I laught at my own jokes.
I laugh at my own puns.
Goodbye.

It’s barely the first week of class, they’re at it ALREADY.

NOTE: I’m going to make it my mission to destroy every single one of these that I see for the rest of the semester.

Pro-abort compassion for pregnant women at its finest.

Destroying cards that offer help to people who may be in a crisis in their life. Yea, that’s REAL smart, OP.

Freedom of speech encourages more ideas and possibilities being brought to the table. What you are doing is trying to silence those who disagree with you and, in this case, only want to add another option to women in need and help. That’s called Communism.

"I’m pro-woman!  I make sure they don’t hear about those pesky pregnancy centers and adoption agencies!"

I’m eliminating your resources because I support your choices! As long as you have to pay come to me to make those choices!

Aborting a down syndrome baby because he can’t go to Cornell?

clinicquotes:

One father, a computer technologist, said the following about what he would think if the baby turned out to have Down’s:

“I’m sorry to say that I just couldn’t accept that. I mean, I’ve worked hard to get where I am, I worked hard at Cornell. And I want the same for my child. I want to teach my child, and have him learn. Maybe it’s unfortunate, maybe I should be more accepting. But I don’t want a child with retardation.”

Later, in the same book, he said:

“I’m sorry to say I couldn’t think about raising a child with Down’s. I’m something of a perfectionist. I want the best for my child. I’ve worked hard, I went to Cornell University, I’d want that for my child. I’d want to teach him things he couldn’t absorb. I’m sorry I can’t be more accepting, but I’m clear I wouldn’t want to continue the pregnancy.”

Rayna Rapp Testing Women, Testing the Fetus: the Social Impact of Amniocentesis in America (New York: Routledge, 1999) 90, 133 – 134

He and his partner were having amniocentesis done with the plan to abort the baby if he or she had down syndrome.

Twitter Campaign: These are only facts. 

Feel free to join in on this campaign to boycott the Exodus movie trailer. I’m so infuriated that it is 2014 and we are still portraying on the silver screen a falsehood of what the ancient Egyptians were! Use the hashtag #BoycottExodusMovie to join. This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!

i will be boycotting this. I hope this takes off

I love the hp movies but it is so painful because I want charlie weasley, I want peeves, I want a kinder, accurate ron and an unperfect, accurate hermione. I want all the little sassy, clever, lines left out in the movies and all the really important details that were left out.

Just…. so many things wrong with this post. I don’t even know where to start. But as a sampler:
the number of these “coat hanger abortions” is blown out of proportion with regularity by abortion advocates- Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist, admitted to making up statistics of deaths by back-alley abortions.
In fact the number of deaths by illegal abortions (as reported by the Centers for Disease Control) in 1972, the year before abortion was legalized, was only 39.
Former Planned Parenthood president Mary Calderone stated in 1960, “The conference estimated that 90 percent of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.”(emphasis mine) (sources cited here)
Unborn babies are not “like the [cells] that come off your feet and body.” Those dead skin cells will never be anything other than dead skin cells. Unborn babies are living, growing human beings. Your dead skin cells still carry your DNA. Unborn babies have a completely different DNA, their own organs (otherwise the mother would, for a time, have two brains, four lungs, two hearts, etc.).
"…or save a woman who might end up curing a life-threatening disease?" Yeah, like the female who is growing inside her mother’s womb? 
Stop the spread of lies about abortion. Stop painting it as some great achievement for women. Stop pretending that cutting off the uniquely feminine ability to carry and nourish a brand-new life is pro-woman.
