You tell me how often a baby survived a hundred years ago with only have 50% capacity for exchanging gases without any artificial life support. How prevalent was that prior to using to modern technology (even if it just meant mouth to mouth on the struggling newborn)?
To read Doc's posts (i won't even bother with yours), one would think a physician would determine fetus may have 50% chance or better at exchanging gases on its own, birth it prior to its due date, put it on ALS, and there will always be a happy ending. What Doc doesn't or won't take into consideration is that if the newborn doesn't survive, even will all it seemed to have going for it, then it wasn't viable. His postings, his thoughts, his understanding of how ALS is used, belies the fact he doesn't get it.
And I'm cool with that. Y'all can just keep your lame name-calling to yourselves. And if you don't like others doing it, you're only being hypocritical when you do it to others.
But, hey, I'm cool with y'all showing your true colors.
Aren't doctors and nurses just a joke. I am sure my grandmother
had her twelve babies at home without a doctor cutting her
or putting chemicals in her. These men just enjoy hurting women.
No one knows how they hurt our babies. God knows.

I believe it does matter what you think of aborting a viable fetus.

I'm not out to take away anyones rights, but I don't believe aborting an otherwise healthy baby,just becouse, is not right and shouldn't be a right.

Scott Peterson thought he has a right, to live a selfish life,AFTER his wife was with child.

He must live with his choice, as do we all.

As far as his kid was concerned, I see no difference in what he did, and what a doctor does to an otherwise healthy unborn baby.

Late and later term abortions are not the norm. These account for less than 2% of all annual abortions.

Neither do these compare to murder. It is illegal to abort late and later term without cause. Most states have restrictions and strict guidelines to follow.

It doesn't matter if I find it revolting and would not choose it for myself. It doesn't matter if a woman learns late in a wanted pregnancy her fetus is doomed and she decides it is better to abort. Neither does it matter if she is induced prematurely, births a doomed baby, only to watch it until it dies. These things happen outside your control, outside my control, outside the general public's control. Who do you think you are to control these personal, private medical matters?

I mean really?

I didn't know why you kept on and on over one post, but after dealing with foo, I now fully understand why you did what you did.:)
It seems she looks for any opportunity to call someone a liar.
I'm sure you realize that everything on here is a 2 ways street. Foo admitted to being a drug addict in her past and she takes plenty of insults for that bit of personal information. Ocean has been honest about her feelings on motherhood and the PL get on her like a pack of hyenas on an antelope. CD discussed his divorce and has been getting trashed by some PLers on here ever since. And look what happens to Cpeter for being open about his sexuality.

And any PCer on here who has admitted to having an abortion gets bashed repeatedly by self-righteous PLers.

Sounds like one hell of a double-standard to me.

You tell me. I use name-calling very little here. Usually dish it back after it's been dished out to me. What the opposition does is hold the entire group of PC people responsible for a couple or few posters. It's disgusting.
Last year, when I was wrongly accused of supporting infanticide, I stuck it to 'em and they trot this out as if it was current. Even though I refrain from using the same phrase, there are a couple (or one poster under different SNs) who keep rubbing my face in it.
So you tell me. Above you chastise me when I am standing up for myself. You want me to cringe into the woodwork and get walked on like a doormat?
No, of course I don't want you to cringe and back away from the debate. I want you to defend your position with the passion that you demonstrate, even if i disagree with it. The unfortunate reality of this computer interaction is that it coarsens the debate in way that is very unproductive. The anonymity allows for some to be extra mean, and extra rude. Trust me, defending a conservative opinion opens you up to some of the forums most arrogant,vicious, and I must add, ignorant and juvenile. It's more fun then watching TV for me, and I am not afraid to offer up my opinion. Like on abortion Katie. I think its killing a baby. My wife and I have two children. The first, my daughter, was not planned, we were not married. Its 26 years later and I have a beautiful daughter that loves us, and thats how it worked out for me. No regrets.

Maybe. But your goal is to steal women's civil rights. Not just mine or Coeans, Elise's, LNM's, or Foo's, but our descendants, too. You have a daughter. You are trying to steal her rights away, too. Before you even have an opportunity to need these.
You are aware that Roe v Wade also protects women from forced abortion, right? That reproductive decisions belong with the person deciding; not the gov't, not the clergy, not nosy parkers like you.
<quoted text>
Are you a woman then?
<quoted text>
It doesn't matter if I think aborting a viable fetus is murder or not. I am not the one having to make that difficult choice for reasons I am not privy to, but usually involves a life or two at stake.
For a group that likes to compare pregnancy to conjoined twins, how come nobody comments on when the weaker twin is allowed to die so the stronger one can live?
Excellent points.

Its a tough crowd on both sides. Some folks play pretty rough for sure. I get mocked for my faith, and I poke back. I can tell you though that I pray for those who have been alone to face that decision, that choice, and felt that killing their child was the only choice. Its a decision you cant change your mind about once its done, and if it gets in your head in a bad way, can take a long time to put away somewhere in your mind so you can deal with it. You never really move on from that even if you tell yourself you have. To go on and have kids and to experience how beautiful and special they are can add to the pain in your soul.

I think we all have decisions in our past that are difficult to get over. We try to rewrite our history with "what if" and "if only" thoughts. If you believe in God, and if you believe God creates, then you might think the z/e/f is not really gone forever and that God would find a more suitable situation and the person the z/e/f was meant to be gets another chance.

Great. But your experience is not every woman's experience. Are you wanting to be every woman? There are some here who base their arguments on their myopic little world as if nothing ever happened to anyone that didn't happen to them first. Are you that way, too?

I have daughters. And granddaughters.

Have you had an abortion? Do you really know what it's like? What pregnancy is like? What a high-risk pregnancy is like? A miscarriage? I mean a man can empathize to a point. But only to a point. Even the old Bill Cosby claim of pulling your lower lip over your head doesn't *really* explain it.

I have a son that I have never regretted having. He is my pride and joy. I had an abortion that I never regretted having, also. It's not a source of pride, of course, but it isn't one of shame, either. We women do what is the right thing for each of us.

You don't or can't grasp that 1 in 4-5 pregnancies does not result in a live birth. I guess your God gets a free pass from you wacko, judgemental fundies when he decides to snuff a potential life out.

The irony in your post obviously escapes you because you do not know the history of abortion in America. Obviously.

Did you know it was physicians who wanted abortion criminalized in the 1800s, out of the hands of midwives and others knowledgeable with female issues?

No we cuss at Him to, since we know every child that dies before birth is His doings.
I'm sorry my questions like "do you consider aborting a viable fetus as murder? "Bother you.

Between all the pro choicers and God, we good upright sinless folks don't have much of a chance.:)
