Your personal attacks, ad homs, are weak. These only highlight your inability to go beyond dissecting into analyzing basic concepts and principles.
You asked a hypothetical. I answered it. I based my answer on the medical fact a stillborn is technically considered a fetus because it didn't take its first breath.
That's it. All the other info presented was to help others understand. You've chosen to go over this again and again. But you've added nothing. You still can't claim I am wrong, no matter how often or how loud or how rude your posts when you try.
Yes, medically, fetus adjusting to life outside the womb is a process. It encompasses the newborn's ability to sustain itself outside the womb.
Legally, that magical moment of fetus becoming newborn is upon a complete birth (when baby's breathing and the cord is cut).
It is that simple.
1. Why so sensitive?

2. "fetus adjusting to life outside the womb is a process" - Klueless Katiekins

Problem is, dear, medically and legally s/he is no longer at the fetal stage of human development. You realize this, which is why you can't share a link supporting your contention that s/he remains a fetus upon birth (for up to 48 hours).

3. "Legally, that magical moment of fetus becoming newborn is upon a complete birth (when baby's breathing and the cord is cut).

Wrong. Again.

Born Alive Infant Protection Act:

"Born alive" or "live birth" means the complete expulsion or extraction of an infant from his or her mother, regardless of the state of gestational development, that, after expulsion or extraction, WHETHER OR NOT THE UMBILICAL CORD HAS BEEN CUT OR THE PLACENTA IS ATTACHED...

"Infant" means a child of the species homo sapiens that has been completely expulsed or extracted from its mother, regardless of the stage of gestational development, until the age of thirty (30) days post birth.

In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the words `person',`human being',`child', and `individual', shall include every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development.``(b) As used in this section, the term `born alive', with respect to a member of the species homo sapiens, means the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her mother of that member, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut, and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion.

In which case, it would make more sense lilLynne would say it was okay. But all the AC here claim the photos are real.
lilLynne's logic is backwards, imo. Seems to me, because GS died because she broke the law, and is unaware (because she's dead) she would have less right to privacy than a fetus who did not break the law, and is also unaware. Therefore, the degradation she claims would more rightly apply to the fetus, given her logic. Lillynne has a habit of grasping at straws.
Sto -you seem to feel as if God has you here to straighten out us christians who are going about it the wrong way.

So what is you're idea of soul winning?

Do you feel soul winning is part of a christians life?

Do you believe Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven?

You say I'm good at not interpeting the post and scripture, so lets see how you answer these questions.

Why do you suppose, then, most women do not oonsider themselves to be mothers when they miscarry (and have no children)? They "keep trying" to conceive and carry to term so that they can be mothers. Would you tell such a woman she is the mother of a dead child(ren)?
I disagree with your assertion that *most* women do not consider themselves to be mothers if they have a deceased child (miscarriage or death after birth). It is just the woman who miscarries and has no other children, never had an opportunity to "mother " her child.

Wrong. You keep claiming that I've said things that I haven't said, so you lie.

"not anymore, but ur damn sure ill teach my kids thats the best way."

So you're not practicing what you preach. Hypocrite.

"in your case 153 makes you screwed"

Don't compare me to your parents.

I'm not so sure the bible should be taught un school, unless the creation story be read as in the bible. Anything taught should be taken at face value, and not interpeted by the teachers.
It is clear that people can read the same verse and get different meanings.
I agree. I think that should be left to religious education classes and Sunday School.

What do you want done for those women aside from a referral to a good psychologist, family counselor, maybe even a full-blown psychiatrist?
Most likely your church dogma helped navigate her way into a tailspin with its misapplied guilt and ill logic that blames women and holds them responsible for everything negative under the sun.
Acknowledging your wrongdoings is the first step toward seeking forgiveness and healing. That my darling, is a positive thing. Those who don't receive help, will hold on to the guilt and pain...leading to self destruction, failed relationships, more abortions..etc..etc....

No different than any other unresolved sin really.

No, GT, I couldn't care LESS if you are okay with abortion being legal or not, or if you don't like Planned Parenthood. Once again, your being "okay" with something or not is IRRELEVANT, especially to any woman who doesn't want to stay pregnant.
Any woman who doesn't wish to be a mother doesn't HAVE to stay pregnant and give birth against her will. ALL birth control methods can and DO fail at times, so unwanted pregnancies still happen. When it does, the ONLY person who makes the decision to continue it or not is the WOMAN who is pregnant. Don't like it? Too bad, dude, it ISN'T your call to make.
What do you suggest should be done in the case of a woman finding out that she doesn't want to be a mother after she has given birth? Example; the story of that young miserable mom (you posted the other day) who hates being a mom. Do you think that child should be taken away?

What is the point of handing down a death sentence to a preborn baby who is innocent and only doing what s/he is supposed to be doing - growing and developing?
Go after the perp. Leave the baby alone. Were you raised by rabid monkeys?
What's the point in handing down a life-changing, possibly death sentence to a woman who is carrying an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy by forcing her to carry to term?

Go after those nutty PLers. Leave the woman alone. Were you raised by rabid monkeys?

I'll give you one...because your ridiculous scenario assumes that every woman who is pro-choice would have an abortion, or that every woman who is pro-choice has had an abortion. And in its way, it infers that the ones who have had an abortion did so for shallow reasons. And, it's just not a way to talk to one's child. As a fundie do you try to keep your kids in line by threatening them with the fires of hell, as in "go to your room or you'll surely burn in hell"?
What do you consider a "shallow" reason for aborting? I didn't know that there were good "reasons "and bad "reasons" as to why one would abort. Sounds to me like abortion is only acceptable to you "if" the reasons are okay.

Why wouldnt you choose an abortion?

You're such a cnut. Consenting to sex does not equal consent to having and carrying a child. None of your religious nonsense has any bearing on our sexual and personal freedoms.

There is no "proabort mind".

And you lie anyway.

Still, we'll remember this sarcasm every time you throw a hissy fit at Ocean suggesting that teenage girls abstain from now on, you flocking hypocrite.
