You mean the two living granddaughters' rights, right? Cuz you surely don't mean your dead, aborted granddaughter's rights....
What dead aborted granddaughter do you think I have, NR? I've asked you before and you forget to answer. Which makes you sitting on a telephone wire while you're pants are on fire.

FOAH That quote is in regard to someone else using the phrase "useless wad of cells". If I must elaborate further, the wad of cells that became your person have sure been useless and only gone forward to prove the other poster correct in her estimation.
You are moronic, personified.

Your quote makes it clear that that's the question you're responding to....

"No, I don't think calling fetuses in general "a useless wad of cells" is belittling to anyone." - Katie

What is important to note is that you AGREE that "calling fetuses in general 'a useless was of cells' is belittling to anyone."

Cancer is natural. Nobody is saying pregnancy is wrong or a crime; it's a condition that is wanted or unwanted. One might consider pregnancy an injustice if it is due to rape, or if both partners use birth control and it fails. Whatever the motivation, it's the woman's right to abort if she wishes.

Damn you're dumb. We've been over this many times. Cancer is abnormal...a disease.

Mankind was created to procreate via pregnancy. It is a normal part of what it is to be human.

You're a mess.

Foo doesn't care if I call later term pregnancies babies. She doesn't care what anyone calls their own ZEFs either. Your little attempt at divide and conquer is beyond teeny tiny, NR. It's right up there with what does matter. And that's size.
You guys are gung ho on criminalizing abortion, removing women's civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy all under the lame-O guise of "caring" for other women's ZEFs. It's disgusting. Each and every attempt you make at chipping away at my rights, my daughters' rights, even my granddaughters' rights will be met head on ugly for ugly, disgusting for disgusting. You wanna keep playing? We've gone round and round before. I'm ready again, Fim.
Katie: "Foo doesn't care if I call later term pregnancies babies. She doesn't care what anyone calls their own ZEFs either."

Foo referring to LynneD past post: "Did you shit TWO BABIES into that toilet? Did you fish TWO BABIES out of that toilet with a fish net? NO!!"

I dunno. Kinda looks like your assessment of Foo is inaccurate.

Nice try though. I like when you speak FOR foo. It shows you don't trust her ability to wiggle herself out of her own stupidity.

If girls and women think school or work is hard now, they should know that becoming a mother will be ten times harder. Many mothers and grandmothers don’t tell young girls and women in their family exactly how hard motherhood truly is, for reasons known only to them. I strongly disagree with the practice of keeping girls in ignorance of this. I believe they NEED to know what being a mother will require of them, so they can make an INFORMED decision about being a mother, even if it means some girls will decide not to be mothers at any point in their lives. That is just fine if some don't want to be mothers. Not all girls or women are suited to be moms, and choosing NOT to be a mother is just as valid as the choice to be one.
Some of the hardships mothers of all ages will face once a baby arrives include -- but are not limited to -- the following:
1. Loss of freedom
2. Loss of sleep
3. Loss of money
4. Loss of Education and Job/Career Opportunities
5. Loss of Mobility
6. Loss of Private Time
7. Dealing with colic
There is no escaping the fact that becoming a mother makes a girl’s/woman's life much HARDER and she loses most, if not all, of the benefits and comforts she had before she got pregnant. Too many girls/women are PRESSURED into having children by family members and/or religious community, and purposely aren't told just how very hard motherhood is until AFTER they have had a baby. I think it is high time that changed. If some girls/women decide they don't want the hardships of motherhood, that is fine. The choice for a woman to be childfree is just as valid and respectable as the choice to be a mother.
blah blah blah,,, not nearly as hard as you're making it out to be. In all of your posts (please keep in mind I read 1/10,,, maybe) not once, did I read the words "love for you child" because that my Sweet FAR outweighs anything you have to say about the hardships of motherhood. Love conquers it all.

So to all your future posts about the "oh how hard motherhood is.... blah blah blah blah blah"

To them I have one truthful thing to do about that...

YAWN!!

Unfortunately abortion guarantees the pregnancy won't go to term. Which is why abortion should be illegal. People do have the right to life. Irregardless of what some blood-crazed tyrant decides.
Gosh, too bad for you, the SCOTUS doesn't listen to impotent, raving little men.

HARDSHIP #4: LOSS OF EDUCATION AND JOB/CAREER OPPORTUNITIES - As hard as it is to acknowledge, a working mother of any age cannot have the same kind of freedom, flexibility or mobility as a woman without children has. If a girl cannot complete high school due to the demands of motherhood, she will not be able to go to college or vocational school, as both typically require a high school diploma first. That automatically limits her ability to find good employment, and she may well have to settle for a minimum wage job, which pays far less than what is needed to raise a child comfortably. Girls and women who complete high school may find that many jobs require a college degree or vocational school certificate, and without those, she may still not be able to get a job that pays a decent salary. A high school diploma alone is no guarantee of good employment, but all girls need one if they hope to advance to higher levels of education that their chosen job or career requires.
HARDSHIP #5: LOSS OF MOBILITY – Those who don’t have children have a rather naïve idea that parents can just as easily take a baby with them whenever they go out. They are half right. Yes, parents can take a baby out with them, but it is far from easy. Even going to the grocery store with a baby can be a huge hassle. First they have to get the baby dressed, which can be difficult when the little one is happy being home and doesn’t want to be dressed to go out. After getting baby dressed, which can take much longer than mom expected, mom then has to put baby into the car seat, get baby out of the car seat when she arrives at the store, then carry baby around until she can find a cart with an infant carrier. Most grocery stores have very few of those, as I personally discovered long ago. Some may not have any. Going to a restaurant with a baby can also be very stressful, especially if baby suddenly begins crying or screaming for unknown reasons. Mothers who walk into restaurants with screaming or crying babies will find themselves the object of hostile stares, which usually last until they finally have to leave.

Ask your daughters....you know, the ones you vehemently trained to practice their right to bodily autonomy...at all cost....even to the point of KILLING YOUR granddaughter.

HARDSHIP #6: LOSS OF PRIVATE TIME – When a baby arrives, a mom will quickly find that she doesn’t have privacy any more. If she used to read books for hours with few or no interruptions, that will no longer be an option for her. If she is a teen mom who needs quiet time to complete her homework assignments or study for important final exams, that won’t be possible either. A baby will demand her attention many times during the day, so she won’t have private time for doing the things she enjoys or needs to complete.
HARDSHIP #7: DEALING WITH COLIC – For girls/women who are unaware, colic is a long period of crying, screaming and shrieking that can last for many hours a day, and even all night. It can begin when the baby is as young as three weeks old, and it can go on until the baby is five months old. My son had colic for almost two months as an infant. For me, it seemed more like two years. During that time, the crying usually began in the early evening and would last until past midnight. I would walk around the small apartment, carrying him in my arms, for hours trying to comfort him, but nothing I did really worked. He wouldn’t eat, and he most certainly didn’t sleep, and I was a wreck as a result. Being deprived of sleep, with a colicky baby on top of that, can really feel like torture for a mom after a while. I was no exception.
IMO girls and women really DO need to think about these and other hardships of motherhood, so they can make an INFORMED decision about it rather than making this choice in ignorance of the facts.
Oh crap,,, I am running the risk of overdosing... take it easy there Mr.Ms. Afraid of a Bit of Work...
