The fact remains a miscarriage is a spontaneous abortion. It's not about "using" anything except the proper terminology, which YOU seem unable to understand and accept.
Morally, you can believe what you want, but understand that what you believe is not the standard for all.
Not intentionally killing innocent human beings is the standard for all. Only sociopaths support dismembering & executing baby humans in utero.

Yes, it's your opinion abortion has torn the country apart.
It's my opinion the Religious Right as egged on this issue for 40 plus years and increased its pressures the last few while pushing for a theocracy in the USA.
So while you and others focus on developing embryos and fetuses and fight for anti-abortion "rights" (which every female already has, so it's redundant), the Religious Right is busy putting their money into politicians' pockets and chipping away at the middle class, the programs put in place to protect us from the government and big business, and social safety nets. The Religious Right is busy trying to privatize everything so it's run by Christians.
Guess that's all good, if you're Christian. But we are a secular nation with people of different backgrounds and different faiths. And since you can't please everybody all the time, isn't it better to please nobody at all? As in all faiths can be represented on federal and state ground or none at all during their celebratory months.
What does fighting to stop self-absorbed psychopaths like you from executing defenseless babies have to do w/ religion?

We all know what brings about pregnancy.

Even though you pretend not to know, I'm sure you do.

Besides, ever hear of adoption? Isn't that a choice a "prochoicer" supports? Why don't you ever promote that choice? Hmmmm?

The only referrals CPC's make are to welfare offices; they get the pregnant woman signed up, and that's it.

Referrals will NOT pay for the pregnancy and raising a child afterward, and the referrals themselves are NOT the CPC paying anything, Liar.
What do I do? I contribute to charities that help women and their children, and I volunteer with an organization that provides goods and services to pregnant and mothering teens. Still, that is NOT paying for these things, which you want to pretend CPCs do. They don't.
I don't want to kill anyone, especially babies. You're a lying sack of sh*t.

And they do help with counselling for both parents sometimes. And give baby supplies big and small that they can use.

And give advice and referrals fir adoption.

The big thing to me was,that they can meet others in their shoes.

That would have been a real blessing in my time.

Went to the doc. And apparently paid them $350 for an xray that told me what I already knew, the stone is still there. LOL Yay. Next I go on the 25th, and if its still there then, I go for a surgery where they will remove it manually. Its in a position where it can't be "blasted", so literally manually it is. Its laproscopic, but y'know, surgery is surgery and I want to avoid it if I can.
Anyone know any old home remedies to make that sucker come out?

The irony is how the women who don't regret their abortions are treated here. They keep trying to create guilt because they think every such woman should be a quivering mass of regret.

But, c'mon....we all know there are only 50 shades of gray.

I can HONESTLY say I've never seen anyone that's PC treat a woman badly that regretted their abortion. Never.
As we've seen some of the phonies come here and pretend they are still having horrors about it decades later - those people - IF the exist - have much more serious mental and emotional issues than just having an abortion decades before.
I've dealt with women that have regrets, huge ones - mainly the women I've worked with in the jail - the ones that truly want to change their lives in particular seem to have the most regrets. That said however, I've NEVER met one that's been debilitated by having had one years later. I've also met women in the same places who were thankful they had abortions - they know the babies they'd have had would have likely had terrible outcomes because of their lifestyles at the time.
As I've always said, its NOT a black and white issue, the shades of gray are endless.

So every pregnancy carries to term? No miscarriages or stillborns in your world?

There's something called "intelligence." Get some.

I don't see how anyone could conclude differently. If an abortion isn't done, the lady will deliver a baby. If it is, the lady no longer will deliver a baby. Simple logic must conclude then, that an abortion kills the baby. Yet, people still argue.

<quoted text>
I don't deny at all some women do not have regrets or mourn.
And I would never condemn a woman who had one.
I know the desperation.

But by our very nature we are emotional..And in the short term there are physical and emotional changes from cutting short a pregnancy.

And by our nature we may carry another child ..which can most definitely bring up memories we want to suppress.

And all humans sometimes regret decisions.

I just can't see why it is so hard to believe that many women can carry a scar from abortion
It's nit a haircut.

Much more serious..And sorry but there seems to be little sympathy for them or their mourning.

Like they are traitors for that regret.

We are not cars on an assembly line..all different in how we react ..either long or shirt term

And you know darn well there is a difference between a deliberate act ending a life and a miscarriage.
You can call it anything you want..your organization's can change their names.
And frankly since this is usually a serious forum we can at least acknowledge the points you know we make and nit get so much into semantics.
Imo
Of course I know the difference, but they both are abortions. The "semantics" matter when people try to change our laws without addressing this fact. It matters when idiots and radical fundies say that "abortion is evil". I

So, you can think of abortion however you want, but the fact remains that spontaneous abortions are still abortions.

Today's special: Word salad.

Having a baby can be a problem on many levels--economic, physical, professional, etc. Women are certainly able to see their OWN problems without outside help.

Many people are too immature to be good parents; doesn't stop them, though. And everyone else has to deal with their failures.

Many girls give away kids they know they cannot raise properly. Many girls are persuaded to give away kids as well.

Daycare is an entirely different subject.

Having a baby is never a problem.
Someone gives women these ideas.
Men are too childish to be parents.
Women are responsible and will always want their baby.
Movies of a teen giving her baby away while she
sings and plays the guitar with the father are dumb.
How can anyone give away their own flesh and blood?
I will never forget the abuse I have seen in daycare.

There is an old poem with several versions. We should take it to heart ..We are all neighbors..the last thing you should fear in this is a theocracy..it would be contrary to the Constitution.
But these intrusions now..into ordinary. Non terrorist citizens who may not agree with this administration. are horrid .
But hey we like this administration. So it's ok????
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came
Am familiar with that... but apply it to the Religious Right. These evangelists are not what they appear to be. That's why they're referred to as talibangelists.

I first became aware of the Religious Right during the Terri Schiavo fiasco. Have done a lot of research on it. The two people connected to Roe of Roe v Wade are the same two connected to the late Mrs. Schiavo's parents/families. Randall Terry, formerly of Operation Rescue, and Father Pavone,(might be formerly) of Priests for Life.

These people are not good, Rose. And claim everything they do is in the name of God, of Jesus. You seem to doubt what I write, but it is easily backed up with just a smidgeon of a Google or Bing search.

So, yeah, first they came... and everyone focused on developing embryos and fetuses while ignoring the dismantling of all they'd known since the end of WWII.
