Abortion Rights in Northern Ireland & Sex Positive Instagrammers 🍑 Hannah Witton

  1. Abortion isnt a good thing, let's get that straight, killing a baby/fetus with medical assistance isnt a good thing especially when its souley for the benefit of your livelihood rather than factoring in any rights to be alive. Geographical location of a baby shoudlnt change when its okay to kill or not whether its out just been born or is 50 seconds from being born. You talking on this or anyone at all who has been born is speaking from quite a privelidged point of view seeing as youve been birthed and most more than likely wouldnt irridaocate themselves on the spot just to make life a little bit easier for mom or dad. In the case of rape or the mothers life being at stake then yes i can make room for leaneancy on my views on abortion as a whole.

  2. The Northern Ireland same sex marriage and abortion laws aren’t guaranteed, they’re actually more like blackmail. Northern Ireland hasn’t had a government in Stormont since 2016, Sinn Fein said they would go back to the power sharing but the DUP are holding out. If they go back by October then they don’t have to introduce the new laws, and as the DUP are the northern Irish party most against these things the choice is to go back into talks and sort stuff out OR have the things they hate. Kind of rubbish of the government in Westminster dangling giving people rights to get the party against it to go back to talks to stop the rights happing.

  3. It's probably the DUP voting against these. Lol. It seriously sucks that were in the dark ages. Girls getting an airplane to england to get an abortion is so common the taxi drivers apparantly know where they're going when they hear the accent. Itd be nice if there was less shame in girls taking charge of their own bodies.
    The only thing is, this is very dependant on our government not coming back to torment before october. If they do the new legislation could be taken away. First time I'm happy for our government to remain off.

  4. I can highly recommend Liv Strömquist‘s graphic novel / history of the female reproductive organs called „Fruit of Knowledge“ – a great present to unwrap at a fancy afternoon tea 😅

  5. I totally wanna read the book but until recently I didn't want children. The idea of being pregnant and having a little human depending on me absolutely terrified me to the point of having nightmares about it. Sometimes still does.
    I'm slowly warming up to the idea that maybe it might be something i want but from the sounds of it, the book will put me off completely. Do I read it or not?

  6. Please bake the cookies! I've been listening to f**cks given podcast which I think you spoke about in your podcast, it's amazing! Also @pinkbits on Instagram is a great sex positive and diverse illustrator.

  7. Hannah, thank you so much for speaking about this. As someone from Northern Ireland- it nice to see someone to stand with us.

    I have no issue having a chat with you sometime to explain our messy politics to you lol 😂😂

  8. Damn… So, Ireland is going to hell? I just don't get where it's okay to kill a unborn baby, just because it's an inconvenience, or not the right time. I understand that there may be circumstances where it was out of your power to prevent becoming pregnant before hand. But killing a tiny unborn baby is against nature. I had a sister who had 10 pregnancies 5 she kept and 5 she terminated. How can anyone live with themselves, and live a full and happy life? If they believe in God, and they want to go to Heaven some day? It's just morally wrong to put the tiny creatures to death is all I'm trying to say. That little sister died 3 weeks ago. I have to say… It wasn't pretty. Now I wonder if I will ever see her again. IDK if she ever asked God for forgiveness. It effects us for eternity. Unless you have no conscience. Every living creature deserves a fair chance. God Bless us all.

  9. THANK YOU for covering Northern Ireland!! Yeah our politics are getting absolutely ridiculous, I moved away to Canada to get away from it to be honest

  10. Gentleman jack is amazing and is filmed in Yorkshire. I've been to shibden hall where anne used to live. Please make a video baking genital cookies and tie it in with some sex ed

  11. Please bear in mind that abortion and marriage laws in the north or Ireland will only change if there is still no government here in October.

  12. Yesss sex positive families! Melissa ( I think her name is) is the founder and she’s based in my city! I went to one of her workshops in town and my mind was blowwwwwn! Also blew my mind that (you) my YouTube fave mentioned her in a video!!

  13. Hannah you should check out backr on insta and backr.space they are a new startup just won 30K trying to help support content creators. Loved this video cant wait for more in this series!

  14. This right here is the reason why soooo many of you woman today are depressed, The only time an Abortion is ok is if,

    A- The pregnancy is high risk/dangerous to the life of the mother and or there is something seriously wrong with the baby.

    B- Rape/Incest. No woman under such circumstances should have to go through with the pregnancy and also no child would want to grow up knowing that this is how they were conceived.

    I am a man, 28yrs old. NO CHILDREN. I can tell you now there is a 100% guarantee way of never having a child before you are ready, works for both sexes.

    IF you are male, KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS.

    IF you are female, KEEP YOUR LEGS CLOSED.

    ALL THIS TALK OF "MY BODY, MY CHOICE'' is just modern day feminist BS of the highest order. Absolute hypocrites.

  15. On the topic of Northern Ireland, it's too early to be celebrating, there is no guarantee these laws will come into place. If the DUP has anything to do with it then it won't. What's more, if the laws do come into place, and then an executive is reinstated afterwards, then they can remove those laws and it's like it never happened. We are far from equal anything in this backwards hole.

  16. Just to dd while lesbianism wasn't illegal in the U.K, some woman did end up in Mental Hospitals because they had been placed there by family members, usually as a means to get inheritance as if you were declared insane you weren't allowed access to money.

  17. On the Northern Ireland stuff, (this has been pointed out by a few people) its really not as clear cut as Hannah made it out to be, The reason that these amendments were made was to try and force the NI government to have talks (because it hasn't been in session for three years) by passing these progressive laws that would likely not be passed by the very conservative NI parliament. This places big questions over the sovereignty of the NI government and was seen by many people (especially republicans) as a big overstep by the British parliament, That why many nationalist MPs voted against it and many Irish people agree with them, so before we send people out to write to their MPs over this, we should really look at the bigger reasons that MPs might have voted against these amendments, they aren't all bigots or misogynists, some just want to uphold the NI peoples right to their own government (even if it isn't working so good right now).

  18. There’s this YouTube channel that talks a lot about sex positivity and polyamory called Connor and Brittany. They share so many awesome and educational stuff on their channel you should check them out 🙂

  19. The Antinatalism wikipedia page outlines a few more good arguments about the immortality of childbirth. Worth reading if you're trying to form an ethical opinion.

  20. I love that both your nails and your bra straps are the exact same shade of banana milkshake yellow 🍌 can't wait for future Pleasure Troves! 😍

  21. Such an amazing video !! I think i will really love this series 🙂 it's also a really good idea to come back on things that happened in the news and to do a bit of sex education using different shows and programs !

    I would LOVE a baking video where you would use these cookie cutters 🙂 !!
    (i just started listening to your podcast too i reeeeeeaaaaaally love it) thank you !!

  22. I can't believe the first time I ever seen the internal anatomy of the clitoris was from a cookie cutter I'm nineteen years old yikes

  23. My heart jumped when you mentioned Anne Lister!!!! I love gentleman jack so much, I watched it with my girlfriend and we were both super excited about it! Thank you so much for for the work you put into these videos, we really need more people talking about sex in all of its aspects.

  24. It’s not actually 100% amended in Northern Ireland it’s about the backstop with Brexit. Stormhold hasn’t actually been in action for 2 years I think? That’s a piece of conditional legislation that will only come into play if something particular happens with Brexit???? I’m not 100% sure what it is but I know for sure that abortion and marriage rights haven’t actually been properly legalised it’s completely conditional.

  25. Never be ashamed of wanting kids. Never be ashamed of not wanting them. Be ashamed, if you have kids and they shout at their teacher.

  26. Thanks a lot Hannah for the tip about looking up how your MP voted, didn't know this before. Knowledge is power kids! 🙂

  27. Listen. There is no shame in wanting to have children. (And I say this as someone who does not want children.) If children are something that you want, it can be a very wonderful experience to have them, not just for you but for your child as well if you are able to be a parent who provides a safe and loving home for a kid to grow up in. Raising up a good person can be another way of making the world a better place. Many of my friends and my older sibling have kids now, and it's been really nice to see them trying to be very thoughtful about what kinds of messages they send their children and what kinds of lessons they want to impart. Plus they just really love and enjoy their kids. So if that's you, then go ahead. I don't think you need to feel guilty.

  28. Just an FYI, Northern Ireland only gets abortion rights and marriage equality if their government hasn't managed to get itself up and running again by the deadline in October. So fingers crossed it will go through, but it hasn't happened yet.

  29. Yo, lol.. Where that Mine Craft video at.??? … I got the Notification 4 days Late..

    (Kinda sucks actually, dont know why YouTube was late like that)

  30. As someone from northern Ireland all I can say is yaaaaaasssss Hannah!!! Thankyou for using your platform to shed light onto this issue for us #thenorthisnext
