As have I, AJ.
I feel as if the Romney campaign has lied more, though. His constant flip-flopping, the "47%", etc., are driving me crazy. I just get the feeling that the "real" Romney was secretly taped that day, and that is troubling. He cares not a whit for the middle class, or does he? I'm perplexed and frustrated.
La, I don't know what he cares about... I still cannot get over his treatment of man's "best friend".

Of course a direct deliberate abortion is never allowed. I thought I was clear that any procedure or treatment to actually save a mother's life is permissible even if the child dies as a consequence.

In the story that Foo told, she never mentioned why the child had to be aborted in order for her to live. A most unusual circumstance.

This topic should not be a political one. Leave the people effected to make their own decisions. I thought the right wanted less government involvement anyway.

Oh, I don't know, AJ, maybe the dog really did like it? Maybe he didn't go fast? I don't think it was malicious, hun.

Did you see my link about the Republican, "Pro-life" Congressman who forced his mistress to get an abortion? I'm not sure it showed up...

Much like Katie trying to present information that a fetus is still a fetus until born, breathing and cord is cut and proving herself wrong.
Look at you misrepresenting my answer to the hypothetical question of exact moment fetus becomes baby. How does one prove herself wrong when answering a hypothetical, Triple L? Care to explain that in less detail than usual, say 200 words?

Not surprising, though.

Untrue. From everything I've ever seen about Catholic doctrine, there is NO acceptable reason for a woman to have an aboriton. EXCEPT for an ectopic pregnancy, and then they just dont call it an abortion, even tho it is one.
Did you miss the story about the nun last year that was excommunicated for allowing the hospital she worked at to save the life of a woman using abortion?
http://www.catholic.com/tracts/abortion
"in 1995 Pope John Paul II declared that the Church’s teaching on abortion "is unchanged and unchangeable. Therefore, by the authority which Christ conferred upon Peter and his successors ... I declare that direct abortion, that is, abortion willed as an end or as a means, always constitutes a grave moral disorder, since it is the deliberate killing of an innocent human being. This doctrine is based upon the natural law and upon the written word of God, is transmitted by the Church’s tradition and taught by the ordinary and universal magisterium. No circumstance, no purpose, no law whatsoever can ever make licit an act which is intrinsically illicit, since it is contrary to the law of God which is written in every human heart, knowable by reason itself, and proclaimed by the Church" (Evangelium Vitae 62).
A direct abortion is not allowed but a treatment or procedure that saves the mother's life is

In the case of your relative a placental abruption takes place usually in the third trimester and the treatment is to deliver the baby if the placental abruption is causing great stress to mother or baby.

Dogs seem to like the backs of trucks. I wouldn't do it, but that's a far cry from putting a pooch in a carrier on top of a car where he has no control. Guess that dog got even though.

Saw the link! Yep, do as I say, not as I do. Who are these people trying to kid? Themselves, no doubt, because it's different when it happens to them. That's right. Special dispensation or something. Sickening.

Ink, the woman wasn't Foo's relative, just someone she "barely knew" and had "met her once", according to her.

Foo also said that the "baby" was non-viable. I'm still waiting for her to let us know just how far along this woman supposedly was.

Right, you're not grieving, and you come here to USE that story as an excuse to be your usual nasty self toward pro-lifers.
Every single situation in which someone dies unexpectedly "never should have happened", you ignorant buffoon. Fact is, this pro-life woman should be respected and her memory honored for making a mother's sacrifice. She refused to have her unborn child killed.
You were directing your shit to Sassy and me (using Lynne's name), and I have always said when an uborn child is viable, it can be delivered with no less danger to the mother than an LTA. YOU said the baby was non-viable. I have always said that when it's a choice between mother and child and the child WILL die anyway, that the mother should have every right to save her own life.
So you used that story to attack my views and you lied about what my views are. I don't speak out against abortions to SAVE MOTHER'S life. Only at viability when baby can be delivered.
I am confused. Foo said somewhere that she was in a coma, didn't she, so who made the decision to let her die?

Placental abruption occurs in the third trimester and if severe the baby is delivered. What is the need for an abortion?

A funeral service is NOT a memorial service. They are different things. That dear is a fact.

You like to play word games when you're WRONG I see. The pity is you dont play them well and you certainly never learned to play well with others.

What is the difference, and which one is right for your family?

There are several differences between a Funeral Service or a Memorial Service. Both celebrate and honor the life of a loved one. A Funeral Service is more traditional while a Memorial Service tends to be more non-traditional. The body of the deceased will be present at the Funeral Service, and the Funeral will usually occur within a few days of the individuals’ death. At the discretion of the family, a funeral will have an open casket ceremony (where the body can be viewed) or a closed casket ceremony. Funeral Services tend to be more expensive since they usually involve the purchase and display of a casket, transportation of the body to the church and burial ground, as well as embalming (the dressing and preparing of the body for viewing).

A Funeral Service involves a Funeral Director and a Funeral Home, which can be a source of comfort to the family as they are very experienced in the grieving process and handle the supplies and logistics of the funeral. Funeral Services are becoming increasingly personalized. Funeral Homes and Directors will often offer funeral programs, keepsakes and other personalized options to help uniquely honor your loved one. Most Funeral Directors will be flexible and open to any ideas you may have to personalize the funeral service of your loved one.

A Memorial Service also pays tribute to the life of the deceased; however, the body of the person that has died is not present. Since there is no body present, it allows the Memorial Service to be held at a variety of locations. The Memorial Service can occur days, weeks, even months after the person died. Memorial Services are becoming increasingly popular as people are looking for more unique and personal ways to celebrate the life of their loved one. They are more economical as they do not involve embalming, caskets, urns, or transportation. The Funeral Home will still handle either the cremation or burial of the body, and can participate in any part of the Memorial Service deemed appropriate by the family

To help you understand the difference between a funeral and a memorial service, here is an explanation of both.

Memorial Service: A memorial service can be held at any time after the death, even months later. The deceased is memorialized in a less structured setting. The body of the deceased is not present. A memorial service can be held at any location the family chooses and is more a celebration of the life lived.

Funeral Service: A funeral service is normally held within a week of the death. The body is present and the service is more structured. The service is usually led by a member of the clergy and sometimes includes a church service. The service is followed by a burial. A funeral service is held at a funeral home followed by the burial at a cemetery.
