Few give prenatal care.
The number doesn't matter. The fact that some do disproves your implication that the only reason a pregnant woman would have for going to a PP clinic is to have an abortion.

Not always. We have a cemetary where a special section called 'the innocents' is where stillborns and aborted babies are buried.

Yes, I think to some that sounds like a mammogram. Why do you think the rate of metastasized beast cancer in young women has risen alarmingly?
Only an idiot would assume that the phrase breast cancer screening ONLY meant mammograms when there are several such tests, and mammos aren't even done on women until they are 40 unless they fall into high risk categories.

If you are attempting to imply that the rate of metastasized breast cancer in young women is PP's fault because they don't do mammos, then it's YOU who is being "intentionally misleading".

Of course it does. If most of PPs don't do prenatal care and they don't then obviously the pregnant women aren't going they for a service that they don't offer. Use some common sense.

It amazes me that you think women who can't follow birth control in structions would know the difference between mammograms and breast screenings.

As far as your second paragraph, it is off the charts for stupidity.

Because if he is convicted of a crime against an unborn child, pcers will have a harder time declaring that the baby inutero isn't a child. You already have a problem with that Scott Peterson case.

YOU try to some honesty. YOU implied that the ONLY reason a pregnant woman would have to go to a PP clinic is to have abortion. Even if only ONE PP clinic provides prenatal care, and that is not the case, it disproves that implication.

I said nothing about women following birth control instructions, Strawman. My statement stands.

As for my second paragraph, if that wasn't your intention, please do tell us what WAS your point in bringing that up?

Who says "most" dont offer it. From what I can see by clicking on their various state websites, MOST DO.

Nobody "has a problem with the case", since INTELLIGENT people understand that the WANTED viable fetus was within weeks, if not days of being born, and in fact - there's some question if it was born at the time of death as was testified to by the coroner. He couldn't state definitivly that Conner wasn't born when he was killed.

What a STUPID woman you are.

Here's a question. Why, when a CPC does pregnancy testing and only offers referrals for prenatal care, do they consider this "helping a woman keep her pregnancy", but when PP clinics do the same thing, it's not?

If only one clinic provides prenatal then only those pregnant women would possibly be seeking prenatal care. The ones going to a clinic not offering prenatal are not there for prenatal care.

The RCC has been doing everything it can to protect their vast numbers of homosexual priests and cardinals. The archbishop of the UK just resigned due to his sexual involvement with young men. Hopefully the new Pope will thoroughly clean house.

YOU are the one who is not understanding. YOUR implicaton that NO pregnant woman would have a reason to go to a PP clinic except to have an abortion is disproven by the fact that there are PP clinics that provide prenatal care. Doesn't matter how many, or how few, clinics offer prenatal care, and no one said that pregnant woman don't go into PP clinics for other than prenatal care. Your implication was incorrect. Period.

Analyst: Photos suggest Peterson's fetus died in utero

(Court TV)— If Scott Peterson's defense attorneys intend to prove that his son was born alive, they may be in for a rude awakening.

Laci Peterson's remains were discovered on April 13, 2003, along San Francisco Bay.

Police photographs and autopsy reports obtained exclusively by Court TV's Catherine Crier suggest that Laci Peterson's fetus was about 34 to 36 weeks old — not quite full term — when he died in utero, according to Dr. Vincent Di Maio, the chief medical examiner of Bexar County in San Antonio.

Crier enlisted Di Maio as an independent analyst after confidential sources provided her with the autopsy report and photographs of Laci Peterson and her unborn son, who she planned to name Conner.

The exclusive photographs, which have been sealed to the public since the bodies were discovered on April 13, 2003, horrified onlookers who saw them during prosecution testimony in Scott Peterson's double murder trial Tuesday.

One of Laci Peterson's family members reportedly ran out of the courthouse after the photos were shown.

Laci Peterson's headless and limbless remains were found on the shores of the San Francisco bay one day after those of the fetus were discovered about one mile away.

She was still dressed in her trousers, bra and panties, primarily because fish don't like to eat though cloth, Di Maio said. She also had remnants of duct tape wrapped around her thighs.

Toxicology reports showed no presence of drugs in her system, other than caffeine.

Elena Gonzalez spotted the body while chasing her dog at a park in Point Isabel.

Although Laci's badly decomposed body yielded no information as to the precise manner in which she died, Di Maio said evidence of trauma in her right ribs indicated she suffered a violent blow or kick around the time of her death.

"The only evidence of trauma shown is in the ribs," he said. "The internal organs and the uterus are intact, which means there is no evidence of any incision to remove the child."

He also indicated that Laci's uterus helped preserve the fetus of her unborn son.

"The child was in much better condition, indicating it was protected by the uterus," he said. "Also, the cervix was intact, indicating the baby emerged from the top of the uterus."

The remains were too decomposed for pathologists to determine the cause of death.

Di Maio told Crier he believed the baby was expelled from the body within 24 to 48 hours prior to its discovery ashore.

He also said skin tears running shoulder to shoulder across the fetus were post-mortem, likely caused by propeller blades as the fetus treaded the surface of the water.

Di Maio also theorized that tape found around the baby's neck was a moot point, since the fetus most likely expired in utero. Futhermore, he added, the tape was hanging loosely from the fetus' neck and there were no marks impressed into the skin.

"This was a natural separation," he said, speaking of the fetus' expulsion from the womb. "There are no tool marks, and it's almost impossible to take a body apart without leaving any marks."

Scott Peterson faces the death penalty if convicted of killing his wife and their unborn child.

What's the big deal? We all know that PP does more abortions than anyone else. 3800 a day. If a few get prenatal care, it doesn't affect the 3800 who don't. Why do you deny that PP is in the abortion business and in fact is the largest.

Food for thought. I was just wondering what your thoughts were as to why this is happening.
