Since you missed this when it was supplied to Ink, I'll supply it again for you.
"Note: Babies are measured from the crown (or top) of the head to the rump (or bottom) until about 20 weeks. After that, they are measured from head to heel. This is because a baby's legs are curled up against the torso during the first half of pregnancy and very hard to measure.
Weight: 10.6 ounces - 300 grams
Length:
(crown to rump) 6.5 inches - 16.5 cm
(crown to heel) 10 inches - 25.5 cm."

Being a hard-head doesn't work so well after your 20s. Get with it, man.
thanks. what you provided clearly establishes that the crown to rump measurement is "not" the actual fetal measurement. by saying that the legs are "curled up and difficult to measure" acknowledges that they are not included in the measurement and therefore the crown to rump measurement at this stage is understood not to represent the actual fetal size.
are you always so pig headed when it comes to admitting you are in err?

Then you admit Foo was correct in stating a 20wk fetus is measured to be about 6 inches long even though you told her she was wrong? Because that's what I verified. Common knowledge both you and Foo were correct in your claims even though you seem too bitter to acknowledge it.
So tell me, do you think the dead fetus you held was similar in size to a newborn puppy? That was my thought when I lost my pregnancy at 23 weeks. Or would that be "uncommon knowledge" in your opinion?
My grandson was about ten or eleven inches long.

That is big enough to hold in your arms. Did you want to argue about the size of his casket too?

What does size have to do with it?
It's to show Ink that she's not the only ones who's suffered a loss. That she shouldn't being trying to criminalize abortion because her daughter or daughter-in-law lost a wanted pregnancy. To show that "common knowledge" isn't always so "common" after all (as it's subjective).

No, I've purchased a tiny casket, too.

Unlike you, I'm not willing to use my personal loss as a weapon against women I'll never know.

"No, it appears to me that its simply an old news story, that's being updated as events warrant it."

Yea, who cares that women were maimed, abused, and killed and that babies were murdered.
Wow. What is it you expect from people, that's not already been done, about something that happened in 2011 besides wait for news from the trial?

Who cares? Because foo or others aren't rending their clothing, or beating the pl drum, or wearing a hair coat daily means nobody cares?

You don't seem to much care about the illegal drug he was dealing & how many died from that, or whatever else he was illegally doing.

Foo certainly never implied that nobody cares, and it seems as if she staunchly stands up for you often - while you seem to be implying she's wrong in what she's said.

So again I ask, what is it you want from people??

So true. foo's point was that my stillborn grandson was just a 6 inch fetus. You can hold an eleven inch baby in your arms and we did.

A child's sized shoebox would have sufficed.

They don't make caskets for 10 inch fetus's.

The big picture was that he was a baby about 10-11 inches in length.

I did not deny that foolish woman. You said Foo was wrong when she was not. A 20wk fetus measured crown to rump is about 6 inches, which is what she said and you argued against.

That's it.

Why do you fight over stupid sh*t when there's no point? Why don't you listen and learn?

Jeez! You act all holier than thou in your self-righteous ignorance while looking the fool. Go on, be the fool, then. You aren't gonna listen anyway.

Abortion should be illegal because it kills a human life.

You're lucky you had something to hold. Most women don't get that now that the D&X procedure has been criminalized. Happy now?

It's pretty sad when the value of a life depends upon whether that life is "wanted".

Somebody else's unwanted/unhealthy "human life" that won't affect you in the least. That the majority, around 98%, of abortions are done when the embryo is the size of a Tic Tac seems not to impact you at all. Would you rather all abortions be performed late-term in dirty clinics by quacks?

Undoing Roe will open the door to forced abortions in the future. Why you're blinded to that amazes me. That'll be *wanted* "human life" extinguished outside every woman's control. Does that have any impact on your thought process?

All I can say is watch what you wish for...
