velvedeer asked: I'm really curious as I've never spoken to somebody who's strongly pro-life: I understand that you don't believe in abortion- fine. It's a sensitive subject for a number of reasons. But why should other people be able to dictate what a woman does with her own body? The whole basis of government is to protect the rights of its people, and I fail to see how taking away the...
Phantom 30 Day Challenge - Day 10
Day 10 - Your favorite sung line I LOVE IT ALL. *ahem* Hmm…perhaps “let your spirit start to sooooaaaaarrr…” from MotN because when sung properly it is the most AMAZING thing ever :D
wanderingchild: enochiandeductionsongallifrey: So as attention seeking as this may potentially sound… I’m looking for some more Phantom fans to follow, so, you know, if there were any out there that could go ahead and like/reblog this post, I’d be rather happy. you used the Hugh strip gif. I must follow you. oh wait, I already am. Because you’re perfect and stuff. AND EVERYONE ELSE...
fuckq asked: just a thought: there will always be people who are pro-life, & there will always be people who are pro-choice. for just as steadfast & passionate in your beliefs as you are, there are people just the same on the opposite end. just as you would *never* change the way you feel about ending abortion, there are people that will *never* change the way they feel about maintaining its legality....
fuckq asked: "but shouldn’t the baby also have a choice in whether it lives or not?" an egg and sperm / zygote / embryo fetus in the womb at 4 weeks does not have a brain with the intellectual capacity to make decisions. the body of the mother that it is incubating inside of, however, does have a brain, and therefore should have the choice.
amby250-deactivated20120111 asked: Speaking from a pro-life stance, I don't think it's right to compare abortion to the holocaust, and I don't think a dying mother should be forced to have a baby if it would kill her. Do you know how scarring it is to grow up with out parents, and especially if you were to have it in your mind that you may have been the reason for you mother's death on top of that? That would...
bunnie-butts asked: "A baby isn’t part of the woman’s body, it’s simply living inside her until it’s developed and big enough to survive outside of the womb." - Saying that, you make a baby look like a parasite. But no, a fetus is a organism which have the possibility of being a person. So a abortion ISN'T a murder. Okay?
patrickstumpsfedora asked: So, if you're pro-life, what would you think about a woman who was raped and conceived a filthy criminal's child against her will?
Today I was thinking they should make a Phantom of...
phoenixmackenzie: You know. One that doesn’t suck Or how about one that’s magically perfectly accurate to Leroux? That would be the best!!
Adorable, talented, funny and fantastic man

magicmotherfuckers asked: Did you actually compare an abortion to Hitler killing millions of people? The people that Hitler killed were ALIVE. An unborn fetus inside of a person is not alive. It has not been born, therefore it does not have life. If I get pregnant, and I decide I don't want or can't have a baby, it is my RIGHT to have an abortion. Because this thing is in MY body, and I don't want that...
kingdom-dance asked: Hi! I just wanted to tell you that its so great to see someone being so unapologetic about their stance on Pro-life, and responding to harsh reactions with clarity and patience. Especially your educated and concise responses. I really admire your bravery in stating your beliefs and sticking by them. Keep it up! :)
sergiopalma asked: What makes you think forcing women to keep pregnancies they never intended on having will have a positive effect on a society. I refuse to believe that anyone has the right to push their values onto another person. If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty,...
maoa asked: So, being pro life, you would prefer to have children that cannot be properly taken care of being brought into a family that may not even want kids? You would rather them have a horrible life rather then not even letting them have a life? Abortion isn't killing a baby. It doesn't have feelings, it isn't aware it even exists. It isn't aware of anything. Abortion is the mothers...
alphabetsouppredictsyourdoom asked: But if the mother is going to die would you still force her to have the child, with the possibility of the child being a stillborn. And if you think about it, up until the point where the fetus is capable of surviving outside the womb unaided it is just a parasite. Will you fight for the rights of ticks and worms next?
witnesstoreality asked: I'm asking this from an entirely neutral place. Say abortion was outlawed, would you be willing to pay a certain sum a year to support an anonymous child that would otherwise have been aborted?
wellcassiepulledthetrigger-deac asked: so what i am getting after reading your posts (i've only gone through three pages - so who knows i could totally be misinterpreting), is that you do not agree with abortion in the case of rape. is that true?
youngearlgrey asked: I've had a read through your tumblr here, and yes it is extremely prejudiced and racist to liken abortion to the Holocaust. I have a differing opinion from you on abortion, however I will not press it onto you like others have. I am simply here to say that it is NOT okay to use the world Holocaust, given it's meaning in history and society and it's linkage to the Jewish people....
mediumtrip asked: "I simply meant that most women who are pregnant are in such condition because they decided they wanted a child, and are not being unwillingly forced to carry it." Yes, indeed! They got to decide when they want a child, and are pregnant because they want to be! Aren't reproductive choices, like birth control and abortion, wonderful?
mediumtrip asked: "So not wanting a baby is a perfectly fine reason to kill it?" No. That's murder. I think it's perfectly fine, however, to kill an unfeeling blob of cells if you can't afford - mentally, physically or socially - to let it grow into a baby inside your body. Adoption is an alternative to parenting, not to pregnacy.
fuckq asked: p.s. sorry if my questions are wearisome to you. i've just never had an actual conversation with someone who was pro-life before, so i'm just curious is all.
fuckq asked: also, "... doesn’t mean by any means and under any circumstances whatsoever that she should." (1) what if the mother's life was in danger and terminating the pregnancy was the only way to save her life? and i know you've thrown out that whole " > 1% of abortion is from rape" statistic, but even in the case of rape? (2) she should go through the traumatic...
fuckq asked: well isn't it technically called an "embryo" until a certain stage? at 3 or 5 weeks it isn't a "baby" inside of your uterus, it's the cells of a sperm and egg joined to create a zygote or an embryo or what have you. i don't really know the scientific terms, but i'm pretty sure it's inaccurate to call those cells a "child" or...
Phantom 30 Day Challenge - Day 9
9. Your favorite character overall. Going to just go ahead and cliche-ly chose Erik, since he’s just so amazing and insanely psychopathically fantastic. Need I say more?
Reblog if you are always willing to help a...

miss-jean-louise: hadesdecharon: shelbyann91: Ummmm … excuse me? A whole new show??? How do you change perfection already?!?!? Seriously, how can you fix something that isn’t broken??? http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118034746 Has to be like the Les Mis show! All… NOOOO not new costumes!! *goes into a rage* what’s wrong with Maria’s designs?? :O
Phantom 30 Day Challenge - Day 8
8. Your favorite minor character. Carlotta, hands down. She’s just so fantastically hilarious I can’t help but love her diva self!
The right to do something does not mean that doing it is right.– ~William Safire
fuckq asked: no worries. it's just that i never plan on having children. i never want to experience the life changing physical experiences that come with carrying a sperm+egg/fetus for nine months, and then the labor itself. but if, in the future, i'm with my husband, and despite the use of various methods of birth control (condoms/the pill) i become pregnant... i dunno. i just don't think...
psalm120 asked: tomorrow is the day of silence, right? I've never done one before so can you explain sortof what we're doing..? :) I want to participate
fuckq asked: did you receive the rest of my question that ended with the "(c)" at the end? the latter half was important as well & i was hoping to read a response from that too. sorry for the bother (stupid character limit).
Phantom 30 Day Challenge - Day 7
7. Your favorite interpretation of Raoul and why. Generally Leroux (again) for genuinely caring about Christine, but also quite a few stage Raouls (*coughJohnCudiacough*) who are strong, compassionate, and look like they really and truly love Christine and want the best for her.
mediumtrip asked: "Most women do go through pregnancy looking forward to seeing their child, and are not unwillingly forced through the process." This is because abortion and birth control enable uterus-bearers to choose when and how many times they want to be pregnant. It's incredible how you manage to ignore the fact that yes, making abortion inaccessible forces pregnant people to give birth and...
jensenjaundice asked: The fact that you continue to make mention of an "Abortion Holocaust" is why you are racist and ignorant. Whether you believe you aren't erasing the events and deaths of the millions of actual people that had families and loved ones and children and lives, you are when you compare their suffering and slaughter to a medical procedure. Also I've seen a few other things you post....
mediumtrip asked: "Pregnancy shouldn’t be treated as a terrible disease to be avoided, it’s a wonderful thing to bring a new person into being." Of course it's wonderful to have a baby. Except when you can't or don't want to, then it's not so wonderful. And what does it matter how many abortions are performed on rape victims?
fuckq asked: oh no, i didn't mean what do you want to come of the silent day thing, i just meant in general, the big picture scope of things. but you answered my question - you want abortion to be illegal. so no one can get an abortion ever again. but... i dunno. it just seems wrong to me to make a controversial procedure like that illegal. if a woman is in love with someone, and despite her use of...
Phantom 30 Day Challenge - Day 6
6. Your favorite interpretation of Christine and why. Leroux, since she actually has some semblance of a spine and some personality. In addition, a good number of the stage Christines who actually show character development and prove that by the end Christine can stand up for herself and not be a mindless puppet wandering around.
ofbustlesandmasks asked: Proud of you for standing up for what you believe. It is a shame that in this modern day and age people cannot simply let one another state opinions without jumping down his or her throat. Keep being who you are and never let other people tell you what to believe. :)
mrs-annie-odair-deactivated2012 asked: Tell me, do you know what hyperemesis gravidarum, pre-eclampsia, and ectopic pregnancies are? Do you know that some women are more prone to developing post-partum depression than others are, and do you know how hellish post-partum depression can be? Do you understand how pregnancy can change some women's lives for the worse? Or do you not care about any of that, which proves that you have...
