You'd know, wouldn't you? All the while determining what pregnant women *should* do rather than allowing them to do what is right for their families, themselves, their circumstances.
Not really. Pregnant women have access to abortion clinics.

Killing unborn children for their families, themselves and circumstances is not for the faint hearted.

So what is your point? If you kill it, for sure it won't be a newborn.
Damn, you're dumb. I said what the point was, that your statement was incorrect. Abortion was beside the point, not a part of it.

Breathe in.....breathe out. Give that poor struggling brain cell it's much needed oxygen before it dies on you. Clearly it's the only one you have left.

You mean, like you are? Giving the embryo/fetus -- not born, not a citizen -- civil rights taken from the woman pregnant with it?
Try to twist that into a knot, honey.
Do you think we will learn even more about the ability of the fetus to react to stimuli?

For someone who says she bases her beliefs on the appropriateness to kill babies in utero on "science," Katie sure leans heavily on her subjective "philosophy" nonsense.

"My grandma is weird. She spends her time trying to kill babies in the womb. She's a nutcase." - Katie's granddaughter
I remember you interrupting a philosophical discussion inserting your claim that human and human being are synonymous in an attempt to discredit the philosophy of human being. You did this without taking into consideration the philosophy surrounding what it entails being a human being.

You've simplified the entire matter down in your mind to a claim that the embryo/fetus is human and its being in the womb is exactly where it belongs. Therefore, the embryo/fetus is a human being. Don't think that has ever been forgotten smug boy.

As for what you've posted above, none of it matters because it makes no sense in the context I was posting.

Since the abortion issue isn't about "killing babies" but on a very superficial level, I post over and over and over again so nutcases like you can understand -- I support women's civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy, even when they're pregnant.

Are you ever going to get this right, NR? Or are you going to keep wasting time?

Didn't your lost fetus look like a baby? My grandson sure did.
Interesting that you call your child a fetus, we called ours Julian.
I called mine Aaron. And still do. But my girls don't think they have a dead brother. They know I lost a pregnancy.

They have a deceased sister, though. And miss her like crazy.

I certainly know the differences between losing an 8wk embryo, a 23wk fetus, and a 16yr old daughter.

The two in utero were unknowns, dreams that never came true. My youngest was a life. A bright sparkle of life taken much too soon.

Uh-huh. Refute what she said, rather than changing the subject to one that suits your agenda, and inadvertently proves her point...

A reminder: she SAID that your faction is more concerned with the civil rights of a non-born person than a born one. Any born one, but especially female born ones.

I'll wait for you to ACTUALLY address this...and I'll probably be old and gray before you even attempt such a thing.

I am truly sorry for all your losses but I believe that the unborn babies were every bit as human and loved by God as your daughter.

You obviously have no sympathy for women who relinquish their babies and aren't dancing in the streets as a result, but instead spend months and years regretting that particular decision. Especially the ones for whom it doesn't turn out the way it did for 'Rose', and her grands.
Pardon me while I puke.
I have an idea...why doesn't everyone allow women to take responsibility for their own decisions? Sometimes people do regret decisions that they make (sometimes very serious regrets for very serious decisions,) and have to deal with the consequences of that. What a concept, eh? These busybodies need to stay the hell out of a woman's private medical matters, already.

Of course you would - it all fails to support your bullshit reasons for wanting women to relinquish their babies rather than aborting them.

I can't help it that you think the truth is 'nuts' and 'off the wall', but rather than argue about it BEING the truth, you'd prefer to keep tripping over the ever-growing pile of feces you try to convince me is truth.

You refuse to look at any other numbers but the ones you're so 'appalled' by, even when it's pointed out that they haven't changed for the worse, but for the better...because you can't use THOSE facts to advance your cause of obligating fertile women to gestate for the inferts.

Too fuggin bad.

You also think what you 'believe' is so important that it should outweigh the personal reproductive decisions of any and every given pregnant woman who would make a decision of which you don't approve.

We get it. We just don't care what you believe. Now go pound sand.

Yes, it is fascinating. The last ten weeks of pregnancy -- of which your link discusses -- is a very interesting time for near term fetuses.

There aren't any legal abortions at this time, either. But you probably overlooked it in your zeal to strip women of their civil rights. Or the pesky fact most induced abortion occur during the 8th week of pregnancy. Not the 30th week you're alluding to in your above post.

There are legal abortions done in the third trimester. It kept Tiller and Gosnell and plenty of others in lucrative businesses for years.
This has nothing to do with stripping women of their right to abort their fetuses, it has to do with the fact that these fetuses are real humans who's life nobody really has a moral right to end. Legal right yes. You are marginalizing these babies by insisting that they are less human than you. That was you once and I would fight for your life. 8 weeks is no less a human being than 30 weeks.

What I believe is important as it is who I am. Just as what you believe is who you are.

I am not standing in the way of anyone legally killing their unborn child.

You can afford to believe that even as you try to invalidate my pertinent point based on something you'll (hopefully) never experience.
