From This is Fusion: Choose your choice; Fertile Ground: An interactive journey through an unintended pregnancy.
Kristine Marsh, NewsBusters, explains:
This is Fusion has come up with an interactive “Choose your own adventure” game about, of all things, getting an abortion. You remember, those stories where you choose at the end of each chapter, what should happen next?"Imagine you’ve traded lives with a young woman in South Dakota, on the cusp of an important decision. Her fate is in your hands."
Finally, feminists have found a way to make talking about abortion, fun! After all, they’ve already made an “abortion comedy,” why not make it a game as well?
Of course, the goal of the game is to show you how hard and awful it is to live in certain states, such as South Dakota, because of abortion regulations there.
Called, “Choose your choice; Fertile Ground: An interactive journey through an unintended pregnancy” the story starts by asking the reader to, “Imagine you’ve traded lives with a young woman in South Dakota, on the cusp of an important decision. Her fate is in your hands.”
As you move through the game, the decision to keep the baby proves to be the absolute worst decision you could make. You end up poor and constantly ill, with no support from the father or your family. Oh, and your baby was born premature with medical problems too.
But trying to get an abortion isn’t easy either. Of course, the only remaining local Planned Parenthood just closed because of those super-strict abortion laws just passed in your state; so now you have to go to the pharmacy to do it yourself. You face judgement from the “grandfatherly type” pharmacist who lies and tells you they don’t have any Plan B in stock. Finally you pay the exorbitant price of $49.99 at another pharmacy to end that growing life in you and phew, dodged that bullet!
Well, let's also imagine, in the frame of the "interactive journey," the unborn baby's fate "is in your hands."
The game promotes the path to abortion as the correct choice. It attempts to trap one into believing that choosing life guarantees misery.
It doesn't. Abortion, however, does guarantee death for the unborn baby.
Aborting a pregnancy guarantees there are no second chances. It can't be undone. There's no hope for a bright future. It is a dead end.
That reality of abortion isn't included in this interactive abortion game, nor is the reality of "choice."
