[QUOTE who="Brian_G]Now let's discuss the unborn citizens right to consent to what's done to their bodies.[/QUOTE] The unborn are not citizens.

What rights? They're not born yet - how could they have rights?

They don't. Not legal, civil rights. And if the woman CHOOSES,(as most of us do) to recognize the human rights of the fetus, NOBODY HERE HAS A PROBLEM WITH THAT.

Every time I hear one of these stories published for some political reason, I woner why the "infection" wasn't analyzed and treated. There is a gap in the story. She says that she could have had a healthy birth.
"There are no words for the anger I felt when I learned after Elizabeth was born that my infection could have been analyzed, had my doctor been able to get to it sooner. With more information about what caused the problem, we might be able to have a subsequent healthy pregnancy and birth. But 10 days later, the infection was just too severe."
That's because you refuse to read it. There are some operative words here, that you'd prefer not to acknowledge:

"...had my doctor been able to get to it sooner. With more information about what caused the problem, we might be able to have a subsequent healthy pregnancy and birth."

The only way to GET TO the infection, was to REMOVE THE FETUS.

If they'd done so, she could have been able to get pregnant again....as it is, the infection ruined her reproductive system.

No subsequent healthy pregnancy is now possible for this family.. because the doctors had to send Danielle home to wait for her infection to worsen, before they could legally induce labor. Thanks a pantload, Nebraska Senate.

I didn't refuse to read it but I did miss 'subequent'. My bad.

Still I have qestions. Like why wasn't she treated in the normal manner for someone who's water breaks early? Wasn't sh in the hospital being monitored and treated for infection? Why wasn't the baby givn steroids before birth? Why wasn't the baby rushed to a neo natal unit immediately? There are some big gaps in the story.

If your water breaks before 34 weeks, it is more serious. If there are no signs of infection, the doctor may try to hold off your labor by putting you on bed rest. Steroid medicines are given to help the baby’s lungs grow quickly. The baby will do better if its lungs have more time to grow before being born.

You will also receive antibiotics. They will help prevent infections. You and your baby will be watched very closely in the hospital. Your doctor may do tests to check your baby’s lungs. When the lungs have grown enough, your doctor will induce labor.

What If I Have to Deliver My Baby Preterm (Early)?

If your water breaks early, your doctor will tell you what will be the safest thing to do. There are some risks to giving birth early, but the hospital where you deliver will send your baby to the preterm unit (a special unit for babies born early). If there is not a preterm unit where you deliver, you and your baby will be moved to a hospital that has one.

Following birth, and conditional upon the best judgment of others, most notably, the parents' and the courts, until the age of 18 - sometimes, 21.

For example: the right to a free public education - conditional on whether or not the parents want their kid in public school.

The right to carry firearms - conditional on whether or not the parents are in favor of their children carrying firearms.

The right to peaceful assembly - conditional on municipal ordinances, involving juveniles.

The right to free speech - conditional on what the parent deems 'acceptable'.

The right to sign a contract - conditional on whether or not the parents wish to co-sign.

The list goes on, but I think you probably get the drift.

Again, less than 22% of Black women want a Black man and don't respond to them on dating sites! Almost 78% of Black women said they prefer to date or marry out according to Ok Cupid
Only 11% of Black men said they prefer to date in the race, almost 89% of BM prefer to date or marry out!
What I find amazing is that in less than 6 years Black women's rates went from 92% down to 22%.
Just last year, the rates were 27% and now went down an additional 5% in less than one year!

From Hollywood to working Career women, I don't hear any Black women say they want Black males these days! There encouraging each other to move on, abort children and don't support Black males anymore!
This could be the extinction of the Black race because I don't think black women are playing and when they get on he same page they generally make changes unlike Black males who don't do anything!

Call it whatever you want; it doesn't change the fact that it's going to die.

Rights accrue at birth, silly, or when a person is naturalized as a citizen.

The parents wanted to say goodbye with the baby in her mother's arms, rather than subject their daughter to the rush-rush-panic mode of the neonatal unit during THE ONLY THIRTY MINUTES she had in which to live.

You wouldn't know compassion if it bit you.

Well I'm a paint my picture
Paint myself in blue, red, black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
Yeah, well you know, gray is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Mr. Jones and me look into the future
Yeah, we stare at the beautiful women
She's looking at you I don't think so, she's looking at me
Standin' in the spotlight
I bought myself a gray guitar

What do you think a woman is carrying around in her womb? Is that not her son or daughter? Is it not already alive? How can it be in the fetuses best interest to be killed?
reproductive rights are about the woman's best interest. sometimes it is best for the baby to be aborted when the life they could end up living would be way less than desirable. but a selfish person such as you would never understand this.

I guess you agree with just birthing for the heck of it or being forced to birth in places like the El' Salvador where children as young as 4 are parentless and HOMELESS and have to rummage through garbage everyday in order to eat and live....

yes. you approve off this. as long as long as they are born.

Morgan misrepresents my position, again. If I didn't know better, Morgan's mistake would be a lie. I don't approve abortion, I'm pro-life.

Morgan is on the pro-choice side, but understands no exception for cases of rape, incest and medical jeopardy to mother's life.
