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.
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?

Unlike you, I'm not willing to use my personal loss as a weapon against women I'll never know.
It's pretty sad when the value of a life depends upon whether that life is "wanted".

Abortion should be illegal because it kills a human life.
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...

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.
You guys are the foolish ones trying to diminish the value of my grandson and our loss by telling me I was holding a six inch fetus. I believe your measurements are for a fetus inutero. This baby was born and his length was easily measured. I was there, you wern't.

So because we don't know them, we should allow them to be killed in the name of "choice"?

There is no way I am trying to diminish your loss. That's your loss, Ink, nobody can diminish it unless you let them. But you can't blame others for your loss.

Trying to yank other women's civil rights out from under them isn't going to honor your loss, either.

I am not arguing what you held or loved or lost. Don't be such a drama queen.

You said Foo was wrong when she was not. You made something out of nothing and are still going on and on about it.

Be secure in who you are and what you know then find the facts to back you up. Emotion isn't fact.

Bitner, lilerabbitfoofoo have been on these threads for years. Holy Sh#t! Get a friggin life already. I pop in here every blue moon and can't believe how pathetic these people are. No family life,no jobs,no existence but defending killing humans. Don't bother saying you have wonderful families,jobs and lives. Nobody believes that someone who is on here constantly does. Is lalalulu still here too?

LOL

Erroneously.

In error.

Mistakenly.

That was the attitude that allowed Gosnell to continue. The women got what they paid for and nobody cared about the babies.

Well what else are you going to do with them? Force their births and watch them languish in the foster care system? Watch them be abused and neglected? Be denied social services? Be without and left behind?

What does reality show you happens to unwanted children, Sue? It's not such a pretty picture for the majority.

Not to mention the rights to privacy and autonomy protect women from being forced to donate their organs, from being experimented on against their will, from being used and abused by the gov't.

What else is it based on when it is still in the developing stages located inside someone else's body? We are free, in a free country. What does that mean to you?

There is no doubt that there are lots of things that need to change, but is killing helping to change them?

"Not to mention the rights to privacy and autonomy protect women from being forced to donate their organs, from being experimented on against their will, from being used and abused by the gov't."

Privacy and personal autonomy should not include the right to kill.

Unfortunately in this country, it means that women have the right to kill in the name of "choice". Thankfully we live in a country were we are free to work to change that law.

I don't believe I ever corrected foo. It was other people who corrected you. I didn't even respond to her post other than to call her a cockroach for her insensitivity. You all can say he was 6 in 2 in or 1 in, I don't care. I was there and I know how big he was, not that it matters.

I was wrong I did correct her about my grandson. Her post said nothing about measuring only part of the body and I was looking at the whole child. If there is some reason to measure only part of the child after birth, maybe you can tell me what that is.

Your hate is all you and the other faux-jew pagan have.
Rejoice for He has Risen. I have celebrated the resurrection of Christ yesterday, on the Holiest day of the year.
I pray for forgiveness of my sins and yousr as well.
Scripture is not proof. We never met the writers or lived through the times to know if what they wrote is factually accurate.

You can equate not believing in your particular dogma with "hate" but that is strictly your problem.

Indeed. IMO militant religionist hierarchies don't want people to be too educated or too successful. Too much education leads to people realizing that what they've been told by the religion or church is NONSENSE, so many people will leave. Too much success can lead to more people deciding they DON'T need the church for anything, so more people become independent of it.
So the hierarchies come up with every TRICK in the book to keep people from developing ideas that are against the church's interests and lead people AWAY from the church. Saying certain emotions are "sins" is one such trick.
Meanwhile these people struggle against their own human nature while fearing punishment in a mythical hell.

You were the one talking about your own 'goodness'.
I think the parrabel was lost on you.
No, it was meaningless to me. I try to live a good life not because I'm looking for some reward, or because I fear some kind of damnation. It's because that's just what I choose to do.
