Ah, he doesn't really mean "warning". What he really expects you to do is constantly nag at us to believe as you do. Or rather, as he does.
Yep.

One of the reasons I think it's Big Sky is he hasn't taken his preaching to another thread. He says he wants everyone to hear his "testimony". He thinks he's doing God's work. Well, he's gone as far as he's gonna go on this thread. Time to move on, wouldn't you think?

Medical personnel aren't trained in the handling of formaldehyde, because the only time we are exposed to its use is in A&P lab. I wish Sappho would just admit that she made her story up.

Probably not something you should brag about.
But how do you feel about the 5 New Jersey judges who unanimously ruled that it's perfectly legal if a woman ingests narcotics or street drugs even 48 hours before delivering a full-term baby?
Are we numb at this point that life exists in theo womb 48 hours before delivering it?

Everyone would choose private school. It's not going to happen.
Yes, I know people are taxed even though their kids go to private school.
What do you think the taxpayers pay for a child in public school?

Elise: "Why would you think we have to "cope" with abortion, when there's nothing wrong with it?"
It is abnormal for a mother to intentionally kill her own baby in utero.
Only a mother who lacks a conscience (sociopath) could go on unremorsef or regret-free for dismembering, squishing the beating heart, & crushing the skull of her preborn baby girl or boy.
I guess we know what you are.
Gosh, just think of all the millions of "sociopaths" roaming the earth freely. They're teaching your kids, tending to your medical needs, protecting your community, wearing American uniform, etc. Oh, the horror! Lol

It was in the '70s and '80s for renal dialysis. It was the early '90s when my mom became a home-health nurse because patients could run in the comforts of their own homes. But twenty years prior, patients ran 3 times a week, 8hrs at a pop in a hospital setting. Don't take my word for it. Here's an old CDC article from the mid-'80s.

Yes birth control can fail, but we don't have a problem with birth control failure, we have a problem with folks wanting to condone bad behavior, becouse we know that 3000 + abortions a day, are NOT due to bc failure, nor rape or incest. They are due to people living risky lifestyles, and want everyone to not only be ok with it, but help fund the ridding of their consiquences.
Tax payers pay for birth control, plus many other services, including a ride to and from doctors office, for those who need it, plus abortions regaurdless of how many times they say no.
Do you really think pro lifer's can trust people who make their living off of killing the unborn, to be honest with our money?
Why don't we just start paying for the motel rooms and party goods they use?
Do you have a problem with taxes going to prenatal care and WIC and hospital services to deliver and all the other services that come after?

The same kinds of people who party and practice all the "bad behavior" you don't condone are the people who choose to carry to term.

Abortion would be a lot cheaper for the taxpayer, wouldn't it? Why aren't you bitching about the women who carry to term and can't afford it out of pocket or have no insurance?

1. False.
Contraceptive Use
54% of women having abortions had used a contraceptive method (usually the condom or the pill) during the month they became pregnant. Among those women, 76% of pill users and 49% of condom users report having used their method inconsistently, while 13% of pill users and 14% of condom users report correct use. There is no contraceptive method that can prevent pregnancy 100% of the time.
46% percent of women who have abortion had not used a contraceptive method during the month they became pregnant. Of these women, 33% had perceived themselves to be at low risk for pregnancy, 32% had concerns about contraceptive methods, 26% had unexpected sex and 1% had been forced to have sex.
8% of women who have abortion have never used a method of birth control; non-use is greatest among those who are young, poor, black, Hispanic or less educated.
About half of unintended pregnancies occur among the 11% of women who are at risk for unintended pregnancy but are not using contraceptives. Most of these women have practiced contraception in the past.

2. Why aren't more woman using the MAP?
3. Unless it is a case of rape the woman is just as responsible for the pregnancy as the man.
All good reasons for education and cheap or free bc.

As you know, Sue, a lot of folks on the AC side think teaching how to avoid pregnancy and STDS causes more unintended pregnancy and STDs. So, they are staunchly against education. I know you're not one of them, but just in the last few weeks at least one AC poster on this thread has said as much.

My sister was given morphine and vicodin (I think) while in labor, and sent home because she wasn't dilated enough. As soon as her husband got her home, she began to bleed. He called an ambulance. They barely got to the hospital in time. She almost gave birth in the elevator. The baby came into the world high as a kite.

Needless to say, my female relatives were not very impressed with the Dr. One, who works at a hospital, said they wouldn't have handled it that way. They would't have sent my sister home.

Contractions 2 min. apart and dilation not to the Dr.'s preference. I dunno. I'd think you'd want to keep the patient at the hospital just for caution's sake. But, hey, I'm not an MD.

You bring up a very good point. I did taxes once for the public, and it is amazing when you tell someone that they are going to recieve a refund of 5-7 thousand dollars!!! And they either say, that sounds about right, or is that all??? When they only made 13,500 for the entire year! Only payed in 400 bucks, if that!!! So sure I could grip, it is nothing more then a way for democrats to buy votes.

My entire point sto, is if the government "AS LARGE AS IT IS "would stop trying to take money from people and distribute it to whom they say should have it, then this country would be much better. So would the people.

When we give away birth control, like they are trying to get passed now, with no co pays for birth control, and we legalize abortions, or give earned income credit to those who have them and can't afford them, we ser ourselves up for failure.

If people are held accountable for their own actions, then things would really slow down, and women would either wait till married, or make sure all measures are taken to prevent pregnancy.

I did one ladies taxes, and she got back 7000 bucks, which was over half of what she made. She had only payed in.300 bucks to the system. This is what the gov does with taxpayers money.

The only good thing about it, is how most people who qualify for eic will blow it all at wal mart, or a 3000 car.

I'm not against helping out folks, but this is not helping, it is enabling them.

Not all states are as generous as CA.

Would you seriously vote against funding prenatal care and WIC and hospital services to those who choose to carry to term?

I wouldn't. They can have my tax dollars. The alternative would be devastating. You'd have women carrying to term with no prenatal care! That's crazy talk.
