You PCers are very big on 'choice'. You defend the ideal that every woman should have the right to make any choice she wants and society has to live with/accept her choices.
In the PC mindset, a woman can never make a bad choice, she is just too intelligent and good to make a bad choice. Men on the other hand can and do make bad choices, the worst of them being rape.
Yet, couldn't rapists make a case, using the same belief system in the ideal of 'choice' that you PCers cherish, that they shouldn't be dissuaded from raping and/or being persecuted under the law for the choice they've made?
I'm sure you PCers will point out that rape is a terrible thing, but abortion is not, but I'm not agruing that point. I talking about your cherished ideal of 'choice' and how it is the most important thing in the world to you.
I believe that if you want to world to respect the ideal of 'choice', then you should be willing to accept everyone - not just women -- making their own choices in life, whether that choice is good or bad, and that nobody has a right to dissuade others from making choices.
Thus, using your belief system in 'choice', women should not try to dissuade or punish men for the choices they make in life, which among many things would include rape.
Women make as many, if not more, poor choices as men. How's your property doing these days, Mr. Head of the Household?

Sentient beings - they come with rights in this country. You really have the most bizarre arguments opposing legal abortion that I've ever come across.

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.

BraveCon to Junket: "You PCers are very big on 'choice'"

Actually, Junket abhors adoption. She's made that very clear in her posts, and is open about it.

If you read her posts, she's not real excited about babies, either. They use resourses.

Puddles! I don't abhor adoption. I also love babies and prefer to see them loved in return and not being viewed as vulture food. That's just me. You obviously don't care one bit about quality of life - which is likely why you have acclimated to your own dismal basement dwelling existence.

What exactly is your definition of "convenience"? A woman struggling to make ends meet? Perhaps a woman that is emotionally ill equipped to mother a child? An at-risk pregnancy? So many reasons, none of which are my business or yours.
But, I do believe that you may be confusing "convenience" with "necessity" since it's not you in that position and (there is a God!), you never will be.
I don't see why you bother. He thinks staying alive is a pregnant woman's "convenience".

This has nothing to do with PL standards. My posts speak to the PC standards, and what they claim, as opposed to what they do. Maybe you should pay better attention to what's said and why.
I never said either had a right to privacy, I said the PC camp keeps claiming "right to privacy", and don't allow Gerri hers. Even if she didn't legally have a right to privacy back then, why when PC claim it's a woman's right now, has that woman not been respected by PC to give her hers?
What her family wanted is not an answer. i'm talking about HER. She obviosuly wanted to keep her pregnancy and her abortion secret. How disrespectufl of those who claim they respect women and respect their right to privacy to exploit this woman's dead and naked body that way.
Your post is reasonable. However, the discussion was indeed regarding AC standards. You asserted that circulating GS's photo is degrading to her. PC then compared the use of her photo to the use of what ACers consider "dead babies", when AC put these photos on posters and display them on public streets. The comparison is that if using GS's photo is degrading to her, then to using the photos of what AC consider "dead babies" is equally degrading (by AC standards) and therefore a double standard.

Right because I am not calling newborn a fetus. Your lack of comprehension is not my issue or my problem. I will not indulge you any further. You make faulty claims based on your own lacking ability to read what others write.

Therefore, I will only respond with "whatever you say dear"... And pat you on the head for good measure.

No fool, the woman is the one who says it.
My mom doesn't say it. She miscarried twice before she had my brother. She doesn't include the miscarriages as children she had. She wasn't a mother until she had my oldest brother -- the oldest sibling. She doesn't say the miscarriages are our siblings.

If you call your miscarriages "children" no one here will fault you for it, but you can't assume or assert every woman who has had a miscarriage feels the same way and claims they were children. No fault for them, either. Isn't that right? You wouldn't tell them they are the mothers of "dead children" when all of their children are alive and kicking. Or would you?

I have never met anyone that when asked "how many kids do you have" says: Oh I have two - rachel and charlie, then there's the george and ginger, the twins that died in the toilet."
Who knows. Maybe you DO say that Lynne.
Yeah. Maybe she does.

AC believe a miscarriage is a dead baby, so it stands to reason they believe a woman who has only miscarried, never able to gestate to to a live birth, is the mother of as many dead children as she had miscarriages.

Why won't they say so? 1. Cause they don't really believe the rhetoric. 2) Cause they don't really believe the rhetoric.

There's a Pro-Life march in Washington D.C. today.
As I said in a previous post, I believe God is speaking to our nation about abortion through the people in the Pro-Life movement. We are his modern-day prophets.
We Pro-Lifers believe that we have God on our side and His will is going to be accomplished through us, even though it may take a while to convince all you hardcore PCers that abortion is murder.
Roe vs Wade was a victory for the Devil, but this victory is only temporary. Eventually people around the world will see abortion for what it is and will outlaw it again...and I believe it won't be men who will have it outlawed, but women.

Gerri Santoro's story in a nutshell:
"In June 1964, a woman was found dead from an illegal abortion on a Norwich, Connecticut motel room floor. She was identified by her sister as Gerri Santoro, a mother of two facing her third pregnancy. Santoro and her two daughters had been victims of an abusive husband/father. Santoro was just 28 years old, and was 6.5 months pregnant with her secret lover’s baby. He took her to the motel, and fled when the self-induced abortion went wrong, abandoning dying Santoro behind.(He was arrested but served only a year for manslaughter)."
She was 6 1/2 months pregnant (with her secret lover's baby) when she had that abortion. She wouldn't be allowed to abort a healthy child these days even with abortion being legal, so PCers using HER as the poster woman for abortion rights is senseless, disrespectful to HER, and displays desperation from the PC camp.
More of her story here: http://www.rhrealitycheck.org/blog/2007/06/07...
It doesn't show her photo. Just the story.
Including: "...Gerri was also the victim of years of domestic abuse at the hands of a cold, self-hating, and bigoted man—Sebastian "Sam" Santoro—whom she had naively and impulsively married at age 18. As a young bride in 1953 determined to get married before her best friend did, she subsequently endured years of abuse to try to save her marriage. She left Sam after she saw him repeatedly beat and whip their daughters with a belt.
Trying to build a new life, Gerri met a kinder, married, and smooth-talking 43 year-old man at the training school where they both worked. Clyde Dixon was completely different from her husband and Gerri, now 28 but still with dreams of a more hopeful future, talked of marrying Clyde and living in a big house with him and her daughters. But it was not to be. She became pregnant and when she learned that Sam was returning from California to see her and the girls, Gerri feared for her life and the lives of her daughters. She and Clyde checked into a motel on June 8, 1964 with the intent that Clyde would perform the abortion, using surgical instruments and a textbook that he had obtained from a co-worker. But she started to hemorrhage and Clyde panicked, leaving her by herself in the hotel room. Gerri died alone and in pain, discovered by the motel cleaning woman..."
Once again, the story is being used to support abortion rights. What she endured in that motel room is inhumane and tragic. The reasons she made the choice to abort a healthy 6 1/2 month old unborn child is a testament to how {desperate} she was to hide this secret affair and conceived child from it. If that had been my sister, I'd have done everything in my power to proect her from the abusive husband, NOT to abort a viable child.
Very sad story.
It seems she was looking for someone to put her faith in -a man.
Both men seemed to let her down and use her in her life.
Now prochoice folks can use her in her death.

I cried over this lady, which died so long ago. She needed something bigger then anything on earth to help her.
Very sad.
