You haven't provided proof of anything, copying and pasting from the internet is not proof, your word is not always 100% accurate, your views are not always logical, you are the same as any else which is imperfect. This is not a contest Lil where we should strive to "win" but it is a contest to you. It's always about PL vs PC with you and never about putting our ideas together and working together, discussing together what we as society can do to get the rates down whether it's abortion rates, teen pregnancy rates, or birth control responsibility. You make into a contest degrading others who have good ideas just because they are PC rather than complimenting them for the idea or trying to discuss it further.
Perfectly spoken, Ayaka. She has a very warped perspective on how a debate should work. In anyone case, what I wrote in January was accurate. An abortion is an abortion is an abortion, medically speaking. She makes her nitpicking about a word or term into a win or lose contest, as you said. There's something wrong with that woman.

<quoted text>What is a D&C Procedure?
D&C, also known as dilation and curettage, is a surgical procedure often performed after a first trimester miscarriage. Dilation means to open up the cervix; curettage means to remove the contents of the uterus. Curettage may be performed by scraping the uterine wall with a curette instrument or by a suction curettage (also called vacuum aspiration), using a vacuum-type instrument.
What is your point?

Why is ablation not used to remove fetal tissue, because it destroys the uterine wall. This is why women who have endometrial ablation are advised to get a hysterectomy or go on birth control. Got it?
Exactly. Hint: ablation.

I know it, it's laughable. Maybe next time they have a pap smear they'll ask the doctor to do it doggie style because the position is the same lol.

So. Foo, Sassy says that you claimed that a D&C is an abortion, even when there is no product of a pregnancy in the uterus. True?
Sassy doesn't know what she's saying half the time. In one post a miscarriage is not an abortion then a few posts later of course a miscarriage is a spontaneous abortion. The confusion is the way the pregnancy is terminated. One is natural one is willful but both are abortions. They either understand that or they don't.(termination of a pregnancy vs miscarriage, both are abortions). I guess when a woman naturally aborts the D&C is a natural thing to do so it cannot be an abortion procedure even though an abortion is a miscarriage. When a woman has a D&C for an elective abortion, the D&C then becomes a murder weapon and they don't want to be associated with that.

I think that Sassy, Ink and LLL know that there is no argument on the issue of abortion rights. One either believes in them or one does not. So, they turn to semantics and extraneous bullshit to make drama and deflect from what is the truth: abortion is legal, safe and will stay that way.

Yeah but they would rather the graphic images of spontaneous abortions on youtube be the elective abortion. If there is that much fetal tissue left in a uterus after the suction step......I don't know, maybe they should use a Hoover.

Most women who have an endometrial ablation are past menopause. What i posted came from a health care web site,they would know better than you now wouldn't they.

I love the video that Knit is so fond of where they pick gingerly at the "fetus" at the meatus (vaginal opening) for no apparent reason, tearing it apart with a tweezer for dramatic effect. Lol! Why would a physician do such a thing? The fetus is already out of the vaginal canal and is
intact. Why does the "doctor" play with it like a cat teasing a mouse? Ridiculous.

One, prove your first statement. I was not past menopause when mine was done. Two, even your own source didn't say it was used as a treatment after a spontaneous abortion, which IS what a miscarriage is. We were talking about the D&C used after a miscarriage, and YOU tried to say they don't DO a D&C anymore, but an endometrial ablation. You are wrong. Period. You even tried to claim that your doctor said so. You lied. Period. No doctor would ever say something like that.

Look, everybody... I think we are all playing into the hands of a couple of pinheads (to use their own term) that are only interested in creating drama by starting endless bickerfests over semantics. They argue over one word or one sentence, literally. And then, LLL has the audacity to tell us that we should interpret HER words as she intended for them to mean, when she doesn't give us that benefit, herself. These women are petty, controlling, dishonorable and mean. That is my genuine opinion of their character and I believe I am correct.

I apologize for lowering myself to LLL's level. She is a manipulative bitch, to be sure, but I am responsible for reacting to her nastiness. I am a better person than that and I didn't act it. In the future, I will act in this venue with the proper ethics I live by in the RW.

I still reserve the right to make irreverent jokes, but I will be gentle. It's in my DNA to laugh at myself and to tease others. I will be kind, however :-)

P.S. LLL, sorry for calling you a bitch. I think the name is fitting but I could've used a less crude one. I'm sure you will be less than magnanimous in replying to this apology, but I know your nature, by know. It's the best I can do, considering the not-so-nice things you haven post about me. I'll try harder:-)
