TIME magazine claims Florida law makes it hard for men to get abortions

"The abortion was simple: he received a mild sedative, medication to open up his cervix, and a straightforward surgery to remove the fetus."

A trans-identified 18-year-old female in Florida was shocked to find that a sexual encounter with a male led to pregnancy, despite the female being on testosterone. A new article out from TIME Magazine insists "His Pregnancy Came as a Shock. Florida's Abortion Law Made it Harder." In Time Magazine's view, the confused, pregnant 18-year-old female they track in the story is a man simply because that female claims to be one.

The teen refers to themselves as Jasper, and Time notes that the testosterone was giving Jasper a deeper voice and an increase in facial hair. The drugs also decreased menstruation for the teen female. This led Jasper to not even consider the risk of pregnancy when engaging in sexual intercourse with Jasper's boyfriend.

But Jasper became pregnant after being intimate with Jasper's boyfriend and because Jasper claimed to be male, despite being female, the doctor Jasper saw to treat symptoms that accompanied that pregnancy—nausea, soreness, pain—did not even consider checking to see if the teen female was pregnant.

It wasn't until Jasper was 12 weeks pregnant that a medical professional actually told Jasper that "he" would be a mother. Jasper wanted an abortion, but due to Florida's laws, there were only three weeks remaining before terminating the pregnancy would be a violation of state law. And Jasper, a female teen like so many other female teens, did not want to reveal that pregnancy to family.

Jasper, Time Magazine noted, was angry. "The thought flickered through his mind: if he had been born cis, he never would’ve had to worry about pregnancy or abortion. This was yet another way his body didn’t fully feel like his own, and another way it felt like Florida—which had also recently passed a law outlawing gender-affirming care for people younger than 18—was attempting to deny him basic physical autonomy," Time said.

Jasper terminated her pregnancy, though Time refers to Jasper as he, despite the fact that only female humans are able to become pregnant. "The abortion was simple: he received a mild sedative, medication to open up his cervix, and a straightforward surgery to remove the fetus. It was a safe, easy procedure—and immensely painful. And then it was over," Time writes.

So how does Time claim that the abortion law is worse for "pregnant men?" Jasper was rushed into a decision, Time claims, as the pregnancy was 12 weeks along at the time of discovery and abortion was illegal after 15 weeks.

But perhaps even more upsetting than Time Magazine having no idea what a woman is, is their conclusion to the article. "Over seven days, Jasper had learned he was pregnant, processed the news, scheduled an abortion, and after two visits to a clinic, terminated his pregnancy," Time writes.

"He didn’t regret it," Time assures readers. "But the feeling stayed with him—a nagging voice asking, what if? What if he’d been able to give birth and put up a child for adoption? Could he have become a parent, young as he was? He’d never had the chance to consider. He wished he’d had more time. But that was a luxury nobody could afford."

The article claims that Jasper needed more time to make the decision to abort the child in "his" womb, and that perhaps with more time Jasper would have decided to live up to motherhood. Or perhaps Jasper would have terminated the child when the child's development was even farther along.

Yee-gads. You got to be kidding me. Time magazine has been taken over by retards. This pregnant 'man' was not a man, yet the magazine continues to promote the pregnant woman as a man. Unbelievable!


I used to subscribe to Time when it had journalist. Now the only thing it's good for is to wrap wet garbage.
