The Skank has repeatedly said she'd rather her child die than have a live saving abortion. The irony in her insistance that a stranger, who was brain dead, who's husband was fighting for HER wishes to be carried out - in direct opposition to the political football her fk'd up parents tried to turn her into, is astounding. Particularly since she clearly doesn't know shit about the case.
Well as I said in an earlier post..I have learned a lot from the thread. I think it was all tragic and it should have been resolved in the first month if possible. Even if it meant withholding heroic measure or antibiotics..etc..but it wasn't..and if true what was said..this would have been her wishes then..5 minutes or more with no oxygen!!!

I THINK THE PARENTS WERE CONVINCED THEIR BABY was with it ..may have been a lot if desperation involved.
Though why Michael thought they tried to kill her ..have no idea....autopsy says not true..I think ..of well ..anyway tragic all around...I think they all loved her.

Then came the money for Michael alone and for Terrys ..the girlfriend

And the press..and the pols. And the advocates..

Tragic and I pray I am never even close to anyone like this..

I think I saw the movie or a tv movie..I know it's a tragic story of deplorable times. Had no idea it was racy. But then s young girls diary probably has things that parents would not be comfortable with. The mom should have been more informed and discuss w daughter herself in a story this important.
The story is important for the interior life it depicts, in the shadow of a time when many people didn't have the guts to engage in introspection. The only racy element in the movie, is the experimentation between Anne and the older Dutch girl who stayed with the family for a brief period...something which is entirely natural, and psychologically healthy. In my view, banning a work of art for it's provocative qualities, is a testament to the deliberate smallness and willing ignorance of the banners.

Actually, it sort of is, or certainly CAN be. A woman has the right to refuse that medical treatment and allow herself to die. Does it happen? I'm sure it has sometime, somewhere, but it certainly IS elective, and it IS effectively an abortion - the pregnancy is terminated.
Yeah, that teasing a fine hair, but it is the facts.
Lol see reply to Kaie on same thing..please .clumbsy thumbsy tired and I was more specific:)

Well the hypothetical was about a dying daughter I thought. To me that comes under the category of necessary for life. And I am sure consent is necessary.
ELECTIVE aS I was trying to distinguish is a woman goes to an abortion clinic or doc..she is healthy presumably...she wants an abortion.
ELECTIVE is I want a smaller nose or bigger body parts..as opposed to I have a bursting appendix..insurance companies seem to try to differentiate in that manner..That is what I meant.
Again it was a hypothetical on life and death.
I always in my posts try to make the distinction so no one thinks I am for ELECTIVE ..non life threatening ..abortions.For me those last are deliveries or surgeries..
Hope that clears it. I WOULD NOT WILLINGLY LET MY DSUGHTER DIE nor would her husband. They also would never let her hypothetical baby die..on purpose.
Even when they told her this last one possibly had Downs..the recess no question she would have it..thankfully th tests were wrong or we had a miracle..or both.
Leads me to wonder how many abortions are due to wrong early testing. But that is another topic.
I knew what you meant. It's that language thing. Where we use the same words, but different meanings. I really try to remain accurate.

Must have been a tv version I saw years,ago..I dont remember'anything like that..strange..
In the case that the story was about ..could the parent have objected that book and have one substituted? It sounds like it.

Lol me too. And over the years I guess I see ELECTIVE ad in insurance companies or governments

WE had patients from Canada..we're told they could nit get cataract removed because it was only one eye and considered ELECTIVE..So they paid cash..great system..and hoping USA does not follow suit in the future health care plan!! Anyway things like that..

For me ELECTIVE means it's kind of a thing you want but don't need for your life..sight to me is kind of s necessity. Canada disagrees unless you are blond in both eyes..and this was when Cat SURGERY was really expensive!!!

I have no idea - but I think banning books is a disgusting practice.

If parents don't have enough faith in the strength and rightness of their views, to allow their children glimpses into the views of others, I pity both them and the children. And if children blindly follow the views their parents hold, especially the ones which don't make sense to them, they will never learn to think for themselves, or why their parents hold such views.

If you think you could outwit a gorilla, you need to challenge one.
Fence in a couple of wooded acres for a week or so, insert gorilla, insert you, and let the best man, and mans daddy win.
The word outwit will have a whole new meaning to you.
This is how you counter creationism ? Laughable.

Well even the article which I reread says the parents have recourse to substitution if they find material their KIDS.
BANNING a book means taking it off the shelves. Being upset that YOUR CHILD for whom you are responsible is REQUIRED to read something is not BANNING. Now the parents wanted to change things for the whole school..That is a bit closer but still not BANNING. Pesky old language. SERIOUSLY though..even if it was not required required but recommended the kids could go to the library and get it. Not banned

This goes for any booK especially with ideas some people might not like. DON'T take them away but let parents have a say for their own kids..that is their JOB. obviously there are requirements like Math and science and languages..and the schools can certainly make them read books..but let parents decide in subjects they have an interest in.

Maybe it is because we have so many parents that leave the child rearing to the schools that responsibility has been abdicated. BUT I don't want the STATE to have the final say about everything. BUT THAT ALSO only means for MY OWN KIDS.
This whole choice thing is about choice..freedom. but a mother has or should have freedom to take her responsibility seriously AS REGARDS HER CHILDREN. ON ANY SUBJECT. IMO

Agreed. It was middle of the night, they probably thought I wouldn't stir. Their solution was to restrain my wrists to the handrails. Loosely, though. Ahh the good ol' days!

You can't say anyone has committed a crime if they have been found not guilty. They are either innocent or guilty. What you want to think about them is totally irrelevant.

Yep, "Peyton Place", "Fifty Shades of Gray", "Diary of Anne Frank." Classics of steamy soft-core.

Ok here's something really controversial. Which has huge support among the masses of parents..Vouchers

The teachers in the public schools are so overwhelmed by class size and the need to build more schools.
An example..supposedly each child here costs the government over 7500 per year and probably more.

If they gave a 5000 voucher IF THE PARENTS OPTED.. the state would save money. The class sizes would go down. Would need less school building.
The kids could go to whatever school they could afford free private..no vouchers..charter..no voucher..private they probably would pay something besides the voucher but with mire students probably more private or religious schools.(AND THIS IS not the state making a state religion..)

Then those with a problem with books would have a choice..the undereducated would have a choice..Washington DC parents have repeatedly supported vouchers . In other inner cities the same.

This would actually solve the main problem of overcrowding..dearth of school buildings..choice for parents.

But as with most common sense solutions..no one has the political will to try it..says it takes money away..But it saves the state's building and per student expenses. And the competition would most likely be good.
The public schools could probably offer some more choices in curriculum than the private. So I am sure they would remain the top choice..but still it's an idea

As we have here..the state's still have requirements. They all have to take their tests..etc

Ok don't all answer at once. Rotf

Terri had a heartbeat, but not much more. She breathed in and out. But not much more.
You tell me why it was kind to keep her alive while blind (the optical area of her brain liquefied), while in a state of not dead, but not living. With no awareness of herself or those around her.
Regardless of the lies (or wishful thinking) her parents told, people who actually spent time with Terri knew she was not aware anyone was there. Those tapes her parents made and sold for donations were bits and pieces of over 4 hours. Mere minutes here and there meant to mislead (or portray their wishful thinking).
