I was pregnant with each of my children. From the moment they were conceived in my body,they were worthy of respect. God willed their existence as he did mine. We were created in his image and likeness. My life does not mean more than my child just because of their temporary location and size.
In fact,I would ALWAYS put my child before myself. If someone aimed a gun at one of my children, I would jump in front of them and take the bullet. It's a natural instinct.
As far as the woman who died,I have to say two things. I think it is an atrocity that people are USING this poor womans tragedy to further their agenda. There is NO proof that this woman would have survived had they killed her child. The story is inconclusive so there is nothing for me to say.
Furthering an agenda, you don't think it's news worthy? You want it hushed up that a Irish Catholic hospital refused an abortion because a fetal heart beat was detected but a miscarriage was imminent. Inconclusive reports are not going to change the fact she was refused an abortion because of the Catholic religion agenda.

Hey,there are many things that are not included in insurances. For instance,I am into alternative medicine yet I am not covered by my insurance for it. It sucks for me because I have to pay out of my @ss for my insurance each month and what I want is not included...so I end up paying out of my pocket.
I could understand that better if the business were a religious bookstore or Catholic hospital but not a hobby store. And hey, there a millions of people working for minimum wage or layed off who can't afford any coverage.
Of course alternative medicine isn't covered there is no scientific validity to alternative medicine. There is scientific proof that birth control prevents abortions.

Typical fundie behavior: Instead of backing their institutions' refusal to take steps to save the woman's life, she shoves her head in the sand. I'm so glad I'm a nurse in an area where that woman's death would be a crime.

Forcing an American to go against their religious beliefs affects all Americans.
You continue to avoid demonstrating how something of this nature prevents someone from following the 10 commandments.

Thankfully, religious beliefs do not trump health issues.

So,you are trying to justify the fact that our freedoms are being taken away?
Interesting.
Who are you to say what trumps anything? One has nothing to do with the other. Is there some reason you must compromise?
Besides, my "boring" post was saying EXACTLY that. My health choices are not included in my insurance. Why do you think that you should give up your freedoms for a health choice that benefits you?
You've yet to demonstrate how this prevents you from "practicing" your religion.

Nobody says you should dismiss it Knutbar, but many people live very religoius lives without and dont believe they have to legislate their views on people that dont share their faith.

An employer providing insurance doesn't affect that employer's religious beliefs in ANY way. Not many employers are paying for that insurance for one thing, employee's are paying the bill, and what happens between the employee's doctor the pharmacy and them is none of the employers business.

THATS REALITY.

All these quotes from me and others are taken out of context. If that's your only weapon, your tactics are comparable to a Mad Lib game.

Your words regarding your stance are equivalent to, "All women should rejoice in their pregnancies even when unhealthy or unwanted, regardless. If women don't feel like rejoicing, there is something unnaturally wrong with them. Therefore, their pregnancies should be continued as a punishing lesson in life, if they live." Ridiculous sounding, huh? Yeah, I think so, too.

It's been legal in Ireland since 1992 to perform an abortion for life and health. The law just hasn't been officially changed for 20 years therefore doctors fear prosecution. Wonder how many other women died in these same circumstances over the course? Wonder why the government is so slow to change it? Influence, from the religious leaders is my guess. This woman was obviously at risk for health issues when it was discovered the cervix was dilated but the fetus was still alive. And this was before she developed septicemia. They treated her for that and then did the abortion, they did not treat her for imminent miscarriage via abortion because a heartbeat was still detected.

You don't care...OBVIOUSLY.
IF you were FORCED to give insurance to only straight people,you'd have a freakin meltdown because it would be going against your beliefs.

It does when providing insurance means you have to pay for an intrinsic evil. Dang you are not very smart. And another thing, moral relativism is pure evil and causes chaos.

Do you? Many people try and get turned away for things like they are too old, their house is too small ,if only you made a couple more thousand a year, you have too many kids already etc. How many children have you adopted?

The above quote of Foo's came from this post of hers:

101733 in this thread.
"she had been beaten and had been held against her will. She was found Wednesday, and was returned to her home in Florida last night after time in an Atlanta hospital."
Just as NR posted she said. No lie from NR. The lie came once again from Foo when she said he "changed" what she said, when the only thing he did was post the name of the person Foo was talking about in that statement. The lie also came from Googleiscious in also claiming he changed Foo's original quote. He changed nothing that altered her quote in any way.
Nope, the original quote says " I said what I know and am comfortable sharing so far. She was found because of a lead of someone that saw her picture and apparently a flier that was distributed, she had been beaten and had been held against her will. She was found Wednesday, and was returned to her home in Florida last night after time in an Atlanta hospital. That's all. Nothing else."

You see that big word that starts with an A and ends with Y? Do you see where she clearly says I said what I know and am comfortable sharing. You were aware in 2010 she was getting this information second hand.

APPARENTLY
1. As far as one knows or can see
2. Used by speakers or writers to avoid committing themselves to the truth of what they are saying.

She didn't commit that Ariel had been beaten or was in the hospital. Reading comprehension skills are a good thing.

If those are excuses for why NR has not adopted one child, I'd like to hear it from him, not from you Knutter. Stop defending the indefensible.

How many children have I adopted? Do dogs and cats count? If you're really "pro-life," they should. After all, they're my "children" too. I even have medical, I mean, veterinarian coverage on them as well.
