If you live above Manchester, you should probably should look away now.
The Midlands truly is a mystical place. There’s no way I could do this either. I’d be all right with most of the southern counties and a few of the northern ones but beyond that a massive shrug and dragons would get involved.
Should go shopping to finish christmas preparation - nah
Should go to the gym to carry on losing weight - nah
Gonna make a Lamb tagine and play video games instead

Not Fallout 4 but the most elaborate Rickroll of all time. How long before some smart ass does the same for half life 3?
In other news I finished GTA 5 tonight. Well the main story anyway - side missions, achievements and ‘100%’ completion ahoy! Then AC2. That is assuming the PS4 doesn’t supremely take over next week!
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
