Women who call their fetuses 'babies' ARE generally emotionally attached to their fetuses....but 'normal' people don't arbitrarily attach their own emotions to the sexual and reproductive decisions ... or status.... of others.
Slobber emotional attachment all over your own fetus.
If it's not in your uterus, it's not in your purview.

Okay - you win the 'most childish idiot' award, for which I gave you stiff competition. Congratulations. You earned it.

Let's move on.

What is your position on the deliberate culling and killing / cryogenic arresting of the 'little humans' created in a lab for, but not used in, IVF procedures?

Shall we outlaw IVF too, or are petri dishes just not as much fun to control as a uterus???

As I recall, you have yet to take a position on much, beyond your obvious fear and loathing of women's personal risk-assessments, and the fact that men don't have the right to end a pregnancy.

Would you like to discuss the relative merits of allowing the human contents of hundreds of thousands of petri dishes to be casually tossed into biohazard bags, or sent to cryongenic hell on a daily basis.....because they weren't "good enough" to be implanted in a womb?

There are three times as many miscarriages, and three times as many live births, as there are abortions. When you figure out why you feel a need to ignore that, and insist that gestation be obligatory, when the sex was consensual, in a push to control the sexual and reproductive behavior of people other than yourself, get back to me.

Next...

Yes. A bastardized version of a contraction, to be sure, but common usage indicates its solid position in the lexicon.

Got any other questions about literary minutiae?

Or would you care to address my assertions that you are certain 'it's all about you', and that you couldn't possibly care any less about 'babies' once they are born....rather than attempting to deflect away from a serious rebuttal, with evidence to the contrary???

It's not what she said, but it is basically true. You can call it a baby. You can also call it a goddamned bundle of cells. You can call it anything you want; it's colloquial speech. But the actual term is "fetus" as long as you are discussing medical matters like abortion and pregnancy.

You brought up the axiom; it becomes part of the argument. BTW--even in your little world, you're wrong. There is no evidence you exist--your name could be used by a group of posters using the same sign-on.

BTW--MY argument was that it doesn't apply to any non-sentient thing, using the fetus as an example of how it doesn't apply.

You couldn't "pants" a 3rd-grader.

<quoted text>
It isn't possible to discuss a fetus or an abortion in strictly medical terms. It is too important an too emotional especially for mothers. It isn't just a fetus, it is in fact, someone's son or daughter and part of the human race. Abortion is legal and it isn't going to change but neither is the discomfort and aversion to it as more and more people are exposed to ultrasound imaging. Fewer doctors want to kill a preborn and eventually access will be limited strictly do to hearts changing and awareness of the little human in the uterus.

Women who want to be mothers aren't the ones getting elective abortions.

Women who want to be mothers, should still and always have the option to end an unwanted / unhealthy pregnancy, as should women who DON'T want to be mothers.

Your emotional attachment to fetuses not your own, notwithstanding.

Get over yourself. It's NOT all about you, or your 'discomfort and aversion'. It's about personal-risk assessment, self-determination, and self-defense, whether you are uncomfortable with how that plays out for individual women or not.

It's legal and probably always will be for mothers who want to kill their children but it is getting less popular.

Women who have abortions do it because they are NOT ready or DON'T want to be mothers for whatever reason. It's not for you to decide.

Still yapping about "children" when discussing fetuses, I see. Your silly stubbornness is getting in the way of you trying to make a point. Instead, you just come across as dumb.

Women who decided to kill their unborn children, did it on their own. I had nothing to do with it.

A fetus is not a child, so "Unborn Children" doesn't apply.

<quoted text>My son couldn't 'come back' so we (per his pre-death wishes) donated his organs and tissues to those who could use them. They got to stay, because of his generosity. This woman's organs won't be able to be of further use to anyone, as they've deteriorated too far, having been on a ventilator for several months. So, not only was she unusable as an incubator (since the fetus is now dead too,) but no-one at ALL can benefit from her body parts, after her death.
And they want to call this 'pro-life' behavior.
Aaaaarrrrggghhh.....
I'm sorry for your loss, not a playa 1965. Your son's donation was a beautiful gift to help others in need.
