Oh PLEASE. Respect is EARNED, not demanded, try to remember that. As far as I'M concerned, Sarah Palin has proved herself to be nothing but a phony and a hypocrite, not just to me, but to many others as well. That's one of the main reasons why John McCain LOST the election in 2008, because he was foolish enough to choose Palin as his Vice-President. I like a LOT of women, but I definitely DON'T like HER.

In any case, Sarah Palin deserves NO respect from me, so she won't get any. Don't like my saying that? Tough.

Yep. Sadly, there are many such horror stories like this in the news, and this woman certainly won't be the last. There's an anti-choice MYTH going around that "mothers never regret having their children" and other such nonsense. As this and other similar stories prove, that is so NOT TRUE.

I seriously doubt that this woman was given much, if any, information about the hardships of motherhood. If she had, she might have made the decision NOT to have any children, and this horror story would never have happened at all. This is why I strongly believe girls/women need to have the facts about the HARD parts of being a mother as well as the good parts. You (generally speaking) can't make an INFORMED decision about anything if you don't have ALL the facts.

1. Conservative, married mothers and fathers do a far better job than the public schools, just look at the statistics.
2. I've never advocated restricting contraception, but parents must decide for the child, not the state.
1. Yeah, Brian, keep pushing that conservative ANTI-CHOICE propaganda, for all the good it will do you. I did very well in public school, as did all my siblings. Thank goodness my parents kept all of us OUT of the toxic faith-based "schools."

2. So you want to restrict KNOWLEDGE of contraception for teenagers who might be thinking of having sex as well. Got it.@@

I hate to break it to you, Brian (not really), but denying knowledge of contraceptives to teens has been a LOUSY idea too, especially for the teen girls who DO make the mistake of having sex and then are stuck with an unwanted pregnancy and then a baby anywhere from 14-17. Conservative religionists really should rethink their "teaching" on sexual matters, since what they're doing now really ISN'T working.

Exactly, Morgana. The death of freedom and liberty for girls/women is what conservative religionists want. Of course, they never wanted girls/women to HAVE that freedom and liberty in the first place. That's why so many of them OPPOSED giving women the right to vote, among many other things.

It's sad to think that even in the 21st century, there are still many who want women to live according to the laws of the 19th, when women had NO rights at all. Happily, we DON'T have to live by those oppressive laws anymore, no matter how often conservatives WHINE about it.

apparently she stopped taking the medication she had been prescribed because she was worried abt the effects it would have on the baby who was a few weeks old and being breast fed. She tried to deal with it on her own and then that's what happened.

This is one of he problems of this insistence on breastfeeding. It simply is not necessary; the better benefit would be to stay on the medication. I am living proof that you never have to breastfeed to have a healthy, happy child.

YIKES. Then this nightmare could have been easily avoided if the mom had BOTTLE fed her baby while on the medication instead of going off the medication because she was breastfeeding.

I just don't buy the "breast is best" propaganda, especially when mom is on meds. In that situation, BOTTLE is best.

Not true "sassyntrashy". Have you ever watched the DVD Maafa 21 and checked out the brochure Klan Parenthood. Since when did one have to be a white conservative in order to oppose race related abortions!?

Yes I have.

What men are you referring to?

I have been married for over 30 years. My husband went with me to the clinic and I was in my 40's. Anymore questions?
