I guess you have never heard of POST PARTUM DEPRESSION? Women have been known to become very depressed AFTER they have had a baby.
In any case, it is still a fact that the only person to decide whether or not to continue a pregnancy is the WOMAN who is pregnant. If it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision. Simple as that.
Whats your excuse? You have pre partum., post partum, and every depressionb imaginable becaue you are angry at being born a woman. You not only depress yourself but everyone around you.

HaHaHa! Now taat is a good one! Beter tell elected officials that one. Or better yet tell former Sen. Hagel that offcials of the Jewish Faith do not want to legislate their views.

Thats because ignorant liberals go straight to the bully tactic of shutting down the debate or calling you juvenile names when their argument fails to persuade. They only embrace the freedom of their speech, and the rights that they declare are legitimate. If you disagree, your speech must be silenced, or ignored, or the source needs to be eliminated.
You are so right. It is their favorite tactic. They don't have science or facts so being the big butch bullies suit them best.

You're tearing me apart? LMFAO!! Like I said; you couldn't rip apart a virgin without fudging your own dick (in my previous post I used a ____(blank) in place of dick, assuming you could make the connection. Given that's not the case, I'm compelled to spell it out for you).
Doc, you're acute case of senility is compounded by a belief that just because you say something, then it's the absolute truth. You couldn't muster one iota of an argument outside of Topix. Which begs the question; are you having a cybernetic, or in the flesh, affair with sassy? Maybe you two meet in your son's basement to "clean" it up.
My position has not wavered at all. Viability is reached when the fetus has a 50% ability to make the O2/CO2 exchange in its lungs, which means it has a 50% chance of life outside the womb. When I referred to the hypothetical scenario of a preemie born with 49% ability to make the gas exchange, and the administration of medical assistance to help it reach 50%(which, although not necessary, per se validates Bitner's statement), I also qualified my statement by stating a fact which you seem all too enthusiastic to ignore: that there isn't a single Pediatrician, or ObGyn out there that can make a viability assessment of 50% to a 100% degree of medical accuracy.
So, assuming there was a way to say, to a 100% degree of medical accuracy that the fetus is EXACTLY 49% able to make the O2/CO2 exchange, thus has a 49% chance of life outside the womb, and it's born at that precise and definitive moment in time, there isn't a single physician out there who WILL NOT err on the side of caution and place the preemie on medical assistance, on the slim chance his/her calculations are wrong, and of course, to avoid a medmal action. If you find one, please introduce him/her to me; will you?
"You said that if a preemie is receiving medical assistance that means it's already been deemed viable."
You remember I said this like it was yesterday? Good; since you're so hell bent on posting proof, and demanding proof be posted; why don't you find my post that expressly states that? Of course you won't; because it does not exist.
Sounds to me the remaining part of your brain that was operating at 50% capacity was blown away by super storm Sandy. Or maybe it rotted in your son's basement.
How terrible.
Go suck a mean hard one Doc. Then, go consult with the sock puppet in your "law firm" who's been schooling you and then get back to me.
I'll respond if I feel like doing so. Or, I may just allow you to feed your own illusion and have the last word here on Topix (as if that's going to mean more than the turd I just flushed).
Happy Valentines ya ben elef.
You get schooled by Doc and your natural response is insults. You repeat oft stated statements that have been shown to be erroneous when taken out of context.

Do you really think you can get one of these pagan cows by playing Mr. Abortion Ttud Muffin esq.. Good luck with that.

:)- as I read what you wrote, I could only agree with you.
I'm 6'2" tall 243lbs, with alot of muscle "no body builder type ",but big guy, with a tendency to be a azz, and a jerk, and very capable to hurt someone,but also have the ability to cry in my car, when I see a single mom trying to fill out an application at mcdonalds, while taking care of her two or three kids,or when I see a pic of a child fighting cancer.
You're exactly right, when in my flesh I only care about ME, but in my spirit I love you and all.
When I was saved, it was like recieving the greatest gift ever,and I want all others to have this gift, BUT I also realize I wanted nothing to do with any god gift for years, and I sometimes try to sell my God, like a used car salesman.
We may not ever agree on issues, but I do thank you for accepting anything from me, and I WILL try and listen more, while thinking more before I write back.
I think many programs drug related and others are good for anyone to go through, if they are an addict or not.
I fully understand what it is like to wake up everyday, and know if my day was going to be good or not based on how many pills I had. I do have a heart for all people, and will be able to show it, if I can get "me " to shut up long enough.
So, thanks!
Ps -I recommend the dove truffles, if you've never had them.:)
Careful there Gtown, this isn't the forum you want to tell your vital statistics. You will have old Vladdy, cd and kathy salivating. They tend to walk that way, if you know what I mean. Vladdy all the way. Cd and kathy are more of the both sides of the highwway types.

Don't tempt them on Valentines Day.

To all the EXPERTS on here.

When a baby is being born, are they in pain because the area is so small?

<quoted text>So, you weren't present at the abortion, when you said, previously that you witnessed it. I see. And.... First you wrote that you don't know at what stage of development the fetus was, then you wrote, that it was four months old. Uh huh. Okay. Oh, and you claim that you medical school professionals just stuck a bottle into the fetuses mouth (why would you have nursing equipment in an abortion clinic?) because you didn't know what else to do. Really? Come on... even in the seventies, there were protocols attached to treating neo-nates. The more you try to explain, the more ridiculous your story is. Either your facility was a dangerously ineptly run place with a dangerously inept staff or you are making it all up.
You're confusing yourself.

I was present to assist during several abortions, one changed my mind about abortion.

I guessed the gestation of the botched baby abortion since you asked about the bottle.

I'm assuming the nurse didn't know what else to do but try and feed the botched abortion baby when it came out alive.

This wasn't a neonate baby. They had tried to kill it but it didn't die. At least not according to plan.

Botched abortion babies should be a testament to the insanity of our inhumanity and what we have become.

If a pie-in-the-sky vision of sex and pregnancy means believing you don't have sex unless you're on birth control or are prepared to face the consequences, then you have me pegged to a tee.
ALL methods of birth control can and DO fail sometimes, which means NO method of BC is 100% guaranteed against unwanted pregnancy. When birth control fails and a pregnancy happens, EACH woman gets to decide whether or not to continue it. If it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision, simple as that.

Haven't you claimed to be a nurse? I believe you have, so how can you not know about contraception failures? I find it hard to believe you're really a nurse.

Why is it so hard to love and care for a child?
Because, contrary to what the anti-choice crowd wants everyone to believe, some women DON'T WANT CHILDREN, and they have the right NOT to have any. Motherhood is OPTIONAL, not required, which means a woman can reject it for any reason.

Sorry you have such a hard time accepting this fact. But it IS a fact nonetheless.

That's nothing more than your useless OPINION, Tommydumdum. You're just mad that all women DON'T have to conform to your idiotic and regressive ideas about what women are "supposed to" do. Too bad.

This ISN'T the 19th century, and women DO have rights, including the right to REJECT motherhood if they don't want to be mothers. Get over it.
