Sigh.... I was addressing a conversation from the present, LLL. You are bringing up posts from January? Damn, you are nuts. In medical terms, the procedure is the same, no matter what the indication for each case is. Regardless, its is pure semantics. If a fetus is removed from the uterus, its is an abortion. A dead fetus, a living fetus, a zombie fetus, a vampire fetus... It's an abortion.Here's sme more funy stuff from PCers about the D&C procedure.
I had posted, "I too pointed out that you can't abort a dead fetus, and sense was all that was used to do it. Peter goes around the boards like all other pro-choice fools, posting misinformation and passing it off as fact."
To which Petey replied, in post 213825
"Sorry, nitwit, but abortion refers to the procedure, not the status of the fetus.
abortion: "the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus"

In another post Sassy had written, """"" You don't do a D&C to remove a dead fetus at that stage""""
This is a false statement.
Someone that I know in the medical field,has women come in dying from late term abortions,and they have to do D&C's on them because the Dr left parts of the baby(other) in her ."
In post 213828 Ladilulu replied, "So those are fetal remnants being removed from an abortion. Thats not an abortion. Pay attention. "
We were paying attention then, and still are now. Some PCers were,(and still are) claiming a D&C for treatment of an incomplete spontaneous abortion is "an abortion procedure", while other PC tell us it isn't, as if we're the ones who don't already know it isn't and like we don't get it's th same procedure used for both. BUT the PCers who admitted a D&C to treat a miscariage is NOT an abortion procedure, won't make their posts about it to the ignorant PCers claiming it is. Like Ladilulu didn't then, and like Elise and Akaya haven't now. They have to be told by us to do it.
We were talking about a D&C. That procedure isn't always done as a termination of a pregnancy, but it can be an abortion. That's what I was talking about.
Lynne, I know what I am talking about. I don't care what you think you know. You are so intent on thinking you are winning something here, that while we are moving forward, you are stuck in the past. You are a petty, small person, my friend.
