Yep, seriously. But she insists her adult daughter would want to refuse the life saving abortion because they're all "prolife". And yet she can't see or realize it makes her no different than Michael Schiavo... even as she still vilifies him for wanting to follow his first wife's wishes..
Wow! That is just twisted!

l could not imagine thinking so little of my daughter. But she is a religious freak and probably typical at that!

Yes indeed! Saying it outright does not look good for them. And all the dancing they accuse us with is actually their own side stepping away from this fact.
Congratulations on your long marriage, Morgana :)
Sad really that they think so little of women/girls. But, hey we are on to them and they can't hide the truth for long!

Thanks! Yes, it has been a long time! We sure have had a lot of fun along the way, with more to come ...I hope!

Have a good night! Later!

Here's what I found when searching out Canadian woman aborts pregnancy at 8 1/2 months. The woman had the affair, not the husband. In this instance, the husband is standing by her and wants them to remain a family and raise their young children. Is this what you referred to, Rachel? Or something different altogether? It's similar to what you posted, but just barely.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-23401...
No, that's not it. The story (about 8 or 9 years ago, maybe more) Was a man (married/boyfriend), I'm not sure the relationship, was seeing a woman, and got her pregnant. They were happy about it. THEN he messed around on her, she found out, and out of spite got an abortion when she was that far along. The two didn't have a family, this was their first. Like I said, I don't remember the circumstances too well. What I do remember is the turmoil it caused. Everyone had an opinion, and most, to put it mildly, said she was 'mental, BECAUSE she admitted to doing it out of spite alone. I'll try and find it, but....wow. Not even sure which Province.

I'm trying to understand what doctor would go along with it. And that she must not have admitted to doing it out of spite to the doctor. But maybe better a later term abortion than a baby capable of feeling pain being tossed in the oven or microwave or thrown in a tub of boiling water out of spite. Does anyone want a woman like that actually parenting? If she was that mental during pregnancy, it might've been a lot worse after delivery. Post partum psychosis seems like it might fit here had she delivered.
I'm trying to find it, but good points you made. I'm sure that must have something to do with it. And yes, you can find a Doctor that would do that, but it would be hard, especially without any medical emergencies, AND the baby would survive outside the womb.

I'm sure as an excuse at the time, she didn't admit to that, because if she did, good luck finding one. I wish I could find it... dang. But what you said would make sense. Like I said, everyone had an opinion, and for the first time, most agreed with it.

There are many circumstances under which it 's possible to obtain a legal late-term abortion. Your scenario is not one of them. Nonetheless, if the crazy bitch wants to terminate her pregnancy at 8 and 1/2 months sans a medical necessity, she might attempt the procedure sans medical assistance.

Should she be prosecuted, or treated for mental illness? Neither? Both?

There was an interesting article in today's paper comparing and contrasting this one with the girl from CA. Neither family's wishes are/were being considered by the hospitals in their quests to "follow the law".

I couldn't either, Morgana. But from posting here, I realize there are some women who would choose to refuse a life-saving abortion and face death as a consequence. And, being prochoice, just because I disagree with it, I'm not going to browbeat them into deciding otherwise.

What gets me, though, is SassyJM's blatant hypocrisy. But she has refused to admit it since the hypothetical was first discussed years ago (iirc, it came about during the discussion of the abused 9yr old Brazilian girl receiving an abortion against the Church's wishes).

It seems fairly obvious to me that most of the so-called 'pro-life' people here are anything BUT pro-life. They're pro-fetus, and pro-birth, and pro-their-own-choices, but they couldn't possibly care any less about the life of the born child. Oh no - that's the parents' problem, and they shouldn't have been having sex if they didn't want babies....

And the sad thing is, they don't even see the hypocrisy: they think they're exhibiting MORALITY of all things....personally, I think they should have coat hangers tattooed across their smug, complacent, and interfering faces.....

My opinion is the same as yours. I believe she was mental. Again, I don't know all the details, I'm not even sure if there were charges laid. But Katie made a valid point. For all I know she went in there, screamed that she didn't want the baby, made all kinds of excuses, and the Doctor believed her life to be in danger due to said excuses, I don't know... suicide? I have no idea how crazy she acted or how she went about it, but she found a Doctor to perform it. Maybe she did something to herself, and the baby was already dying like the link that Katie did show me. When the boyfriend/husband/whatever went to the news, she fought back, saying her mental health was in danger, almost proud of her decision claiming she didn't want to bring that scum bags (boy/girl?) into the world (those words probably not used), and she was proud of what she did, and later admitted it to be out of spite (that part I know). But when talking to a friend, she remembers a huge rigmarole about it. Charges laid after? Again, I don't know. The link that Katie showed me about a (I guess) similar story, she was charged, and did prison time.

My opinion is what Katie mentioned, I think she probably should be treated for mental illness cause that sh*t ain't normal, and beats me if the Doctor was charged?

"There are many circumstances under which it 's possible to obtain a legal late-term abortion. Your scenario is not one of them. "

I know, you won't find a Doctor here that will do them after either 20 or 24 weeks (forget our time limit). UNLESS the baby is dying or the mother. Maybe the Doctor was like her husband, and the baby dad her boyfriend. Beats me

All I know is that it happened almost a decade ago, I don't know all the circumstances, and I could be wrong about them. I remember reading about it, I remember thinking spiteful bitch, and then .... nothing, I stopped paying attention.

"Should she be prosecuted, or treated for mental illness? Neither? Both?
What's your opinion? "

If she broke the law she should be prosecuted. She should be treated for mental illness too. So,,, I guess both.

No, I mentioned this before, I believe their reason for not caring about the baby after it's born, is because they are born with the same rights as we are, and if they are hurt, charges are laid. so there is no point fighting for rights when birth gives them rights. It's before they care, because they have no rights before, and that's what they're fighting for.

If I could take back time, I would try my best to convince baby Brianna's mom to abort. Heck, I would like to knock her the f*ck out and perform it myself.

Please don't look up that case if you're not already aware of it. You can't unsee/unknow what you learn, and it's a life changer. It's extremely upsetting, and you just walk away with complete rage at these people. Hate in it's worse form. So again, if you're not aware of it, please stay unaware of it.

A quick way to combat that and spoonfeed them some logic is for you and me to go undercover, write for those online rags they follow, and inject some real common sense into their thinking. That'll get 'em! Pretty soon they'll be waking up from their foggy dreams of trying to steal women's civil rights and realize what dumbasses they've been the whole time. They might even realize how easily led and manipulated they've allowed themselves to be -- and all at the expense of women everywhere.

You remember last night I mentioned an oven, microwave, and boiling water? Yeah... all real cases from around here. Some women should never ever be parents. Ever. jmo
