ANd then it was a metal bowl too, can't forget that!
ROFLMAO! Isn't this some funny shit?? LOLOL
Yes, it was. A very large metal bowl actually.

Let me describe the entire event to you.

After the mother's womb had been injected with saline solution earlier in the day, the physician, myself and another nurse were summoned to the patient's room that evening. It was dark outside, and the room was dimly lit with a sheet barrier in place to shield the mother's eyes from what was about to happen.

Everyone in the room remained silent. The physician attended to delivering the dead baby and I stood in the background waiting for him to need my assistance. When the mother pushed it out, the physician placed the dead baby in a large metal bowl, handed it to me and told me to put the towel that was nearby over it and instructed me where to take it.

I was still trying to force myself to swallow when I walked out of that room. I worked on a surgical floor and had changed the worst kinds of surgical dressings you can imagine. Never before had I experienced the kind of tightness in my throat where I could not even force down a swallow.

That was my first TP "terminated pregnancy" patient. There were many more to follow in the years ahead and I only worked at that hospital another two years. But a few nurses including myself had requested not to be assigned to TP patients any longer.

That was back in the mid 70s. It's different today.

Should we talk about vacuums that suck out dead babies now?

Of course it's all about the WOMAN, no matter how many times anti-choicers claim otherwise. Since the woman assumes all the health risks and other difficulties of pregnancy, it is HER decision whether or not to continue it.
Your not liking a woman's decision NOT to continue a pregnancy is irrelevant, especially to any woman who DOESN'T want pregnancy or children. Motherhood is still OPTIONAL, not required. I suggest you deal with it.
How about the woman assuming preventing the creation of another life?

Or taking the morning after pill if there is any doubt?

Or men assuming more responsibilty themselves?

probably the same reason you could never answer the question about what your personal stand on abortion is.

No way could a school voucher pay for private school.
A bunch of catholic schools in Phila. closed. No one wants to send their kids to public schools in Phila. Too bad for the kids. I guess their legal bills are astronomical and rather than doing the right thing with taking a financial hit they make the students suffer. It's the catholic way.
I believe that's the point behind vouchers. Parents having a choice where to send their own children for an education.

People who currently pay for private schooling are still taxed for public schools; therefore, they fund both public and private schools simultaneously. Vouchers and tax credits are intended to allow students and families to choose the school that best fits their needs.

Countries in Europe including Ireland, Sweden and the Netherlands already implement the voucher system.

There is no such thing. Now, I know what an aborted embryo or fetus looks like, and most of those pics are not that. Not even most of the ones that WEREN'T dolls, canine fetuses, cartoons, smiling infants, test tubes, the toddler raising his fist, or drawings of Jesus crossing himself.
How did you become an expert on what an aborted fetus looks like?

You're - as usual - dead wrong.
I can tell you that the P's in Baltimore that don't do abortions, refer to Johns Hopkins health clinic, or the Harbor Hospital clinic, as well as Sinai, Maryland General and Union Memorial. Further, in DC, Delaware and central VA, they're referred to HOSPITALS - NOT other PP's.
Why? Are their own PP clinics inadequate and can't be recommended?

You'd have to be exposed to open jars and open containers over a significant period of time to have the smell linger that long.
I neither lifted the lid nor was close enough to it to identify any odor. Only cracked the door for a few seconds.
Is a dead baby, a tiny baby boy with fingernails, placed in a cold metal bowl bothersome to you?
How could you see anything, much less a dead baby boy with tiny fingernails, from a cracked door? What's bothersome to me are short-sighted people who will do and say anything to achieve a goal without ever thinking of the ramifications of that goal.

You're a moron Inkstain. Seriously stupid. DELIBERATELY so. PP is a HEALTH clinic. Only 3% of their services are abortion related. Get over it and stop lying about it.
How many 'services' do you think a pregnant woman wanting an abortion has over time, including the abortion? If she has a pregnancy test, an STD test, counseling, Previous contraceptives, a pap smear or any other service, her abortion could be just a small percentage of services that just she received.

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.
all legislation is someone's personally held belief.
do all laws disconcert you?

Nah, you wouldn't ever agree. So I'll not waste my time. You can do some reading on the subject if you are really interested.

True but they would see our downfall as positive. They can't get their heads out of their uteruses and see what is really happening to society.

Really hate to say it, but no wonder half of the population is so confused if you are their representative.

Do you read my posts or just see my name and start arguing after reading the first sentence?

Maybe you should go back and review some of the details.

<quoted text> You worked in an abortion clinic but you don't know? Sorry, but if you were a nurse you would have known. There's no good reason for the fetuses being preserved in little containers of formaldehyde before disposal.
Why are you confused? No abortion clinic was ever mentioned.
