All right, here we are with another gem from Libs of TikTok. You might recall that NPR did a “fact-check” earlier this week on seven “not-quite-right” beliefs about abortion. Among the debunked claims: Fetuses feel pain early in a pregnancy. Note that NPR said “early” in a pregnancy … as in, how early? While states were adopting abortion bans at 20 weeks, NPR cited a study from 2005 (that’s pretty old) finding that “a fetus is not capable of experiencing pain until somewhere between 29 or 30 weeks.” You’re still killing it by aborting it, but apparently, it doesn’t mind, so, go ahead.
We’ve learned this week, though, that it’s important to teach young children about gender identity because even fetuses in the womb pleasure themselves. We’re not sure which study showed that.
Dr. Samantha Busa, a licensed child psychologist at @nyulangone gave training on caring for trans youth.
She says we have to teach young kids about gender and sexual orientation because even babies “play with their genitals cuz it feels good” while still in their mother’s womb. pic.twitter.com/BgFE75ESJ5

We’ve been assured by better minds than ours that fetal movement doesn’t prove consciousness, and they’re more comparable to brain-dead people.
J/SOTOMAYOR: “There is about 40% of dead people who if you touch their feet, the foot will recoil. There are spontaneous acts by dead-brain people. So I don’t think that a response to- by a fetus necessarily proves that there’s a sensation of pain or that there’s consciousness.” pic.twitter.com/wLg6P5z369

Justice Sotomayor is comparing babies in the womb to dead people.

Justice Sotomayor would disagree that they can feel anything

They are exploring their bodies. Just like they explore their toes or ears. It’s not sexual in the same way it is when they’re in puberty or adults.

Just when I think this sickness can’t get any worse, someone ups the ante. Where does it end?

What I find most disturbing is the large number of adults talking about the genitals and sexuality of babies and children.

I thought they weren’t babies yet 🤔

Wait. They are babies now?

How can a clump of cells pleasure itself?

Wait. I’m confused. It’s a baby now if it’s masturbating in the womb? I’m confused about how all this science works.

How do they know babies think it feels good? They don’t consider them autonomous beings yet per their pro-choice stance.

There is absolutely no end to this pit of vile insanity.
