There are no verses about killing of innocence, babes in the mothers womb, etc, but even if God was for abortion, the bible is pretty clear about fornication, which is the number one reason for abortion. As far as christians -they are told to trust the Lord, and having an abortion because you don't feel "ready " or because of money, is doing everything but trusting in the Lord. The Bible is full of bad news for us sinners. Which is all of us, but it also tells us the wonderful news of how Gods only begotten Son, died for our sins, and all who put their faith and trust in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life :)
Why would God want you to kill what he has made?

It's that they'll go to any lengths to legislate their personally held beliefs that is disconcerting, imo. That link of the photo shopped hodge-podge pics of dead embryos/fetuses, infants, pregnant women, Planned Parenthood, ultrasound pics, and etc.? Well it shows such a willingness for open manipulation (from either angle; being or doing). That these people are unable to separate these images, keep 'em in context, is disheartening. They might as well stick their spoons out and ask for more.
Obviously, she didn't even really look at the site she was offering as proof. It was from an anti-choice site, and that was good enough for her. When I got to the pic of the canine fetus, all I could do was roll my eyes.

She couldn't tell the difference between tap water and formaldehyde? Seriously? My mom, a former renal nurse back in the '70-'80s, well you could smell the difference just walking on her ward.
Your mother was right, you can smell it. It can make you dizzy too, without proper ventilation, which I doubt they had in a "storage closet". I remember getting dizzy in A&P when someone forgot to turn the fans on in the Lab, and we were dissecting. I had to go sit down for a few minutes in the hall.

The poster thought relating these "experiences" would lend authority to her arugments. Maybe she thought it would save her from having to admit that all her beliefs come from propaganda. That she automatically believes what she's told, and doesn't bother to check facts for herself, like the fact that Sanger was against abortion. Or that abortion is such a small fragment of what PP clinics do.

You're lying. Again. Abortion in Florida was not illegal in the years prior to RvW. In FACT, in 1972 - the year BEFORE Roe, the Fla supreme court allowed more permissive use of abortion. Oh and PLEASE DO ask me to prove this. It's fun for me to spotlight the stupidtiy of liars like you.
You're full of SHIT and have completely ruined whatever credibility you MIGHT have had with this nonsense.
Gee, wouldn't a nurse at that time have known that abortions were performed prior to RvW? And like I told her, they'd been disposing of the medical waste from spontaneous abortions already.

John Q. Adams asked Thomas Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence. AFTER he was finished a couple of them got together and reviewed it.

Jefferson was in Philadelphia at the time.

Where do you think Jefferson was?

The DID interpret, based upon the Constitution, and overturned what were unconstitutional laws. That is the SCOTUS's JOB.
Roe v wade straddled the fence between the 10th amendment and the 14th amendment. It didn't make a decision based on interpretation of the Constitution.

You're - as usual - dead wrong.
I can tell you that the PP's in Baltimore that dont do abortions, refer to Johns Hopkins health clinic, or the Harbor Hospiatl clinic, as well as Sinai, Maryland General and Union Memorial. Further, in DC, Deleware and central VA, they're referred to HOSPITALS - NOT other PP's.
Did you read the story about the Gynecologist from Hopkins? Amazing...You should never go to a male Gynecologist.

It was in 1975 when the hospital where I worked began performing "TPs", terminated pregnancies.

What's astonishing is more are upset about the container of fluid than the dead baby.

Had I not mentioned the container, the dead baby would have been a non-issue.

By the way, the container was sitting on a counter on the far side of a storage room. It would have been impossible to smell any kind of odor from the doorway where I stood not more than a few seconds.

But I will post something of interest that might clarify any confusion in my next post.

Fetal tissue research is derived from legal abortions and is used for scientific research into fundamental biological processes and human development.

In 1975, such research was permitted if “conducted only in accordance with any applicable state or laws regarding such activities." (45 C.F.R. 46, Sec. 210).”

Scientists obtain fetal tissue for research purposes from a variety of sources including hospitals and, in some cases, abortion clinics.

Perhaps the aborted baby floating in that plastic containter was being preserved for this purpose.

I couldn't tell you for sure.

Isn't it funny how your story keeps changing? First, it was just a bucket, and you saw it "with your own eyes". Later, there was a "lid" you "didn't lift". And now, suddenly, it was "on the far side of the room" and you only stood in the doorway "for a few seconds". Are you still claiming you saw this with your "own eyes", a lidded bucket, up on a counter, from across the room, for a "few seconds"?

No one was "upset". We called you on your lies, that's all.

What you are citing is a 10th amendment application. The 10th amendment is a states rights amendment. Other parts of Roe v. Wade cite the 14th amendment.

Yet last night you claimed it was right after RvW which was 1973.

Who said anything about any odor? But good point, since last night you claimed you CARRIED IT THERE.

ROFLMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

PLEASE do keep lying! Its fun to watch!

Perhaps? You couldn't tell "for sure"? Well, you certainly told us that you were told it would be "thrown out with the other hospital garbage" before.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, huh? You are digging yourself deeper and deeper into a hole, and guess what? You're STILL not fooling anyone here.

Bitner, back in late 2006, early 2007 I read how a truck with medical specimens headed for a research lab was run off the road and the specimens stolen. Turns out not long after, those photo-shopped pics of fetal remains next to dimes started appearing. Not remembering if anyone was prosecuted, but do believe Operation Rescue was suspected or had suspected involvement.

I saw that canine fetus, the ears so high on the head you couldn't miss it. Was trying last night to remember what psychologists call it when you put up random pics next to each other and the mind creates a story that seems to make sense. All subjective and pure manipulation. That SB has fallen for it is no surprise. She's probably using a big ol' serving spoon to swallow that PLM-fed goop.

I used to go to work with my mom as a child and a teen. I could smell the formaldehyde myself. Not to mention my mom would come home smelling of it most days, too. There's no way anyone would mistake formaldehyde with tap water. No way in he11! That poster is her own worst enemy.

You're right, she isn't checking facts and just repeating propaganda as if it were truth when we know better. But why she wants to help blindly shut down PP and any other organization that helps women is beyond imagination. She's just a fetus worshipper, imo.
