Oddly this device changes my spelling on some things..I do try to correct spelling tho but if I spelled your name incorrectly then I apologize.
I don't know if you remember but I used to post a couple of years ago. I always found you to be one of the better debaters though I do not agree with you.
One of the main reasons I stopped was because the forum in general got so personal and nasty. And useless. I mean really. If we want to debate that alone should mean we have a forum for opposing ideas or why bother. I can talk to and agree with myself without benefit of the Internet..lol
Anyway I do try to be respectful ..still believe I and most women sag to others. I am having a baby..etc. my kids especially and their friends.. they even post or send the sonogram as first baby pix...I felt my baby move today. Etc..
My apologies. I've experienced autocorrect, and it's a pain.

Still, using a term of endearment doesn't change the proper terms, which was my point. My 19 year old is not a baby. Neither was my husband's Harley, even if he sometimes referred to it as "My Baby".

No problem. I will try not to use names. But it changes other things or adds letters too

. Anyway we will most likely never agree on this point. To me and many others and to most people BEFORe the abortion debate. And I was around then to hear it...the being inside the mom was and is a baby.

So I will agree to disagree.

You two have figured out the politeness dance. Good job, both of you.

:)

It never seems to be a point with some folks, that if a woman wants her pregnancy, and is joyously anticipating her delivery, as most women do, she happily refers to her fetus as a 'baby'. Women who are not joyously pregnant, not so much.

Wanted or not,'fetus' is a correct term.

It just won't make it through the brainpan with some people, that not every pregnancy is healthy. It never fails to amaze me, the lack of respect for any women who make the heartbreaking choice to terminate a wanted pregnancy. It's always "You're a selfish murderer!!" and never "I'm sorry for your loss," with the so-called 'pro-life' crowd.

Sad.

You are right. Everybody knows it is a baby whether they say the word or not. To not say baby is to deny the relationship between a mother and her child and it dehumanizes the child. Makes it easier to kill if you can tell yourself that it isn't 'really' a baby.

She didn't say everybody.

Nonsense, using the proper terms does not dehumanize a fetus. And using a term of endearment doesn't humanize it, either. That's a strawman argument. No one mentioned species. Tell me you've never called a kitten or puppy a "baby". Go ahead, lie.

Easier to kill? Who am I killing? What a load of crap you just spouted.

But it is not a child it is a growth in the body. Would you also develop a relationship with a tumor?

Who doesn't know it's a baby?

A term of endearment expresses love or affection. Some thing you wouldn't want to use for a child you intend to have killed.

It's not a baby. It's a fetus.

Baby IS a term of endearment, no more.

You avoided both the point that the OP didn't say "everybody", the one about kittens and puppies, and my question. Typical of you.

It is a fetus and if you love him he is a baby. If you are going to have him killed he is a fetus.

Baby kitten and baby puppy is redundant.

Is that what you told yourself, when you had your abortion?

What? You've never had an abortion?
So how the HELL do you know what women who have, are thinking??

Fantasize away, dear...and if it pleases you, go right on thinking you can read the minds of women you've never met.

Weird.

Neither assault on the woman, nor fetal homicide would mention the word "baby".
The phrase I used was from the 14th Amendment.
And the very same right of citizens to "life, liberty and property" which means that a person owns their own body, ALSO means that a woman owns her own uterus.
Human rights are inherent, citizenship has nothing to do with who is or isn't human. All humans have human rights, no matter where they are or how old they might be. You are not allowed to sell your body or any part of your body. No one owns their body or any part of their body.
When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her unborn baby. Alcohol in the mother's blood passes through the placenta to the baby through the umbilical cord. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and a range of lifelong disorders, known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). There is no known safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy. Drinking alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy can cause the baby to have abnormal facial features. Growth and central nervous system problems (e.g., low birth weight, behavioral problems) can occur from drinking alcohol anytime during pregnancy. The baby’s brain is developing throughout pregnancy and can be damaged at any time.
If a woman is drinking alcohol during pregnancy, it is never too late to stop. The sooner a woman stops drinking, the better it will be for both her baby and herself.

Wrong. I used the proper terms all throughout all three of my pregnancies. They were all wanted, even the one that was unplanned.

I didn't say "baby kitten", or "baby puppy", Dishonest One. I said tell me you've never called a kitten or puppy "baby". Try for some integrity for a change.

Nonsense. Using a term of endearment, or the proper terms doesn't determine that. And using a term of endearment doesn't confer humanity on anything, just like using the correct terms takes it away from anything.

Again, tell us you've never called a kitten or puppy "baby". Did it make them human when you did so?

Did my husband "humanize" his Harley when he referred to it as "my baby"?

Why is it so important to you that only some peoples be referred to with terms of endearment, while demanding that other peoples only be referred to with clinical terms? Because you are a hatemongering bigot, perhaps?

Zef you have shown minor drinking does not harm the fetus. Your lack of knowledge is a credit to the CA town you live.

Perhaps the CA drug trade is the problem.

Apparently you can't imagine showing love for them...since you insist they be born regardless of the parents feelings about them.

Do you not see how twisted this is?

No, of course not...you scream 'ADOPTION, ADOPTION' as if giving a child away is always the answer. As if being adopted is always a cakewalk, and every unwanted child gets adopted.

As if fertile women should consider themselves incubators for the infertile, and those babies just get 'blocked right outta their minds', once they're donated to the cause.

"Better to be born into misery, than aborted before one has conscious thought."

Your compassion is depthless, iddn' it.
