You have to remember the hospital where I worked was one of the first hospitals in the entire state of Florida who performed "terminated pregnancies" right after abortion was legalized.

We were all flying by the seat of our pants. Botched abortions weren't even on the landscape - much less how to deal with it.

The reaction among the staff when the reality of abortion hit that close to home created a lot of mixed emotions and tension as well.

I wasn't the only one who requested not to be assigned to TP patients any longer after assisting in a few of them. And I was pro-choice before then.

I see to Moon posts from taday not posted to you and those are still there. Even judgits are on them. One post she wrote that I copy and pasted to you is missing. That post was irrefutable proof that you were lying!! That post is gone!! See the skipped number! I showed the post by copy and paste and proved the post existed. But the post is gome and it proved you have no cred.

You explain why the post is gone!

Mods are fukkinover the choicers! Then the antichoicers crow about how they win! NOT!

I bet you had some of katies posts removed to cover your lying! This stinks all over of lies and deceit by the antichoicers!

You're probably too young, but I remember a time in the late 60s and early 70s when girls who got pregnant - several who were in my class - had to drop out of school and hope the guy would marry her - which, surprisingly, many did back then - or get enough money to fly to New York for an abortion which was inconvenient and attached with a sense of shame.
The Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v Wade was very narrow and restrictive when it came to abortion. But once Pandora's box is opened, it usually flies wide open. That's where we are now.
Ironically, the woman represented as Roe is now a pro-life activist.
Abortion should be an issue for each state to decide and should still be inconvenient and attached with a sense of shame.
Unfortunately, it has become a war cry for the empowerment of women. It's time they - and we - humbled ourselves instead.
Abortion is an issue decided individually by states. The federal umbrella covering abortion is during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy. No questions asked, no reasons needed to terminate an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy. As it should be. Since 98% of all annual abortions are performed during this time, the PLM needs to stop sucking the goop off that spoon and start living in reality.

Roe v Wade also protects women from forced abortion. Don't forget that in your misplaced zeal to overturn it, criticize it, or otherwise disrespect all it does for women you will never meet or know in your life time or beyond.

This was funny. After I gave birth to the 9 lb 15 ounce baby, nurses would come into my room to check me out, because they couldn't believe someone my size could have such a big baby! Ain't that something?
Must have been all the O'reos.
Isn't pregnancy a trip? The only flavor milkshake I wanted was strawberry my entire pregnancy. I never drank strawberry milkshakes. However, the child I delivered LOVES strawberries.

Didn't eat much red meat either. Just the sight of it made me nauseous.

Just odd. And funny.

I would have rathered you addressed the part about abortion becoming the war cry for the empowerment of women instead of their being humbled by it in the face of the overwhelming number of unborn babies aborted in the past three decades.

It's our prideful and selfish mentality that will be our downfall.

Apparently one of mine was removed this morning as well.

And it had nothing to do with abortion.

Either that or I had a computer glitch.

There is nothing that exists on this earth that would ever validate Bitter's patently ridiculous statement.
Now try again and answer because all you've done up to this point is dodge......
Just how does a non viable preemie (which by definition CANNOT survive no matter what medical assistance is applied) survive with medical assistance to the point that it can REACH viability ?
<quoted text>
Ignore ? Ignore ??? I'm the one that said it to begin with ( Post #278266 ):
" There is no way to quantify what is 50% or what is 48%....or what is 52%. One physicians 50% may be another's 45% or another's 55%. What I do agree with is the basic premise that a physician must first conclude that an infant possesses the minimal basic lung function to survive before he applies medical assistance."
Ya like that, stupid ?
Enthusiastic to ignore my ass.
This will respond to both of your posts to me.

You stated:

"There is no way to quantify what is 50% or what is 48%....or what is 52%. One physicians 50% may be another's 45% or another's 55%."

So, under what authority do you make the statement that "[t]here is nothing that exists on this earth that would ever validate Bitter's patently ridiculous statement[;]" your contention that "the basic premise [is] that a physician must first conclude that an infant possesses the minimal basic lung function to survive before he applies medical assistance[?]"

Are you a physician, Doc? If not; who are you to say what is the "minimal basic lung function to survive[,]" or that such needs to be reached "before [a doctor] applies medical assistance[?]"

Bitner's statement, paraphrased, of course, was that medical assistance can be administered to help a preemie reach viability. And you say this statement is wrong, ipso facto, when you don't have the qualification to make a judgment on that statement, especially given your own statement above.

BTW, kudos to you! Thanks for taking my bait, hook line and sinker, and finding the post where I state that a preemie on medical assistance is already viable. You've already agreed that the exact point of viability is unquantifiable, so in a manner of speaking, you've validated Bitner's statement.

This is not a David & Goliath match up cara 'e culo. You can split hairs all you want, but bottom line, you're not an ObGyn, or a Pediatrician, despite that you play a "Doc" on Topix.

With that in mind, I'm going to amend my previous statement and say that a preemie on medical assistance is either already viable, or has been deemed potentially viable by someone that knows more about infants than you and me, or even my wife, since she's a Physiatrist, and not a Pediatrician. Neither Courts, nor dictionary publishers, interfere with how a doctor practices medicine, especially when he/she is acting in the scope of his/her medical training, judgment and/or experience.

So, when push comes to shove, who cares whether you, or me, or anyone else, calls a fetus non-viable. If the attending physician says otherwise, medical assistance will be administered. Fact is, however, you have expressly conceded to my position with regard to the lack of REQUIREMENT of medical assistance for viability to exist.

Doc, if you think you've "won;" what have you won? The only thing you've managed to do is display a much higher, and misguided disposition, to go find a post to "prove" someone else wrong, where it doesn't matter; in an anonymous internet forum. As if such was some sort of overly coveted title.

Go on and enjoy yourself Doc. Be sure to get Sassy, or Lynne to cash your "chips" for you. You'll probably have enough to buy your son more sandbags and shutters.
