As usual, you're wrong Lynne.http://www.medicinenet.com/pre gnancy_preeclampsia_and_eclamp sia/article.htm
"Preeclampsia occurs after the 20th week of pregnancy and can even occur in the days following birth."
IF PCers cared about facts, looked it up, and IF they could understand what they read, they'd see that not one reputable medical site states abortion is needed or is treatment, for any reason, for preeclampsia or eclampsia.
If YOU cared about facts, you'd learn to comprehend what you read, and understand that SOMETIMES, abortion IS the "cure".
Plenty of reputable medical sites DO discuss ending the pregnancy - SOME even use the word abortion as I've proven.
" http://www.news-medical.net/health/Pre-Eclamp... ;
"The only known treatments for eclampsia or advancing pre-eclampsia are abortion or delivery,"
"Once the course of preeclampsia has begun, it cannot be reversed and the health of the mother must be constantly weighed against the health of the baby. In some cases, the baby must be delivered immediately, regardless of gestational age, to save the mother's and/or baby's life."
Read 'for comprehenstion' Lynnekins. Is the Pre-eclampsia Foundation reputable enough for you? No, they dont use the WORD abortion, but its CLEARLY what they're talking about.
Therapeutic abortion: in severe cases not responding to treatment.
Preterm delivery if there is:
marked deterioration of the underlying disease.
indication for termination as in pre-eclampsia if it is superimposed.
intrauterine growth retardation.
Delivery at 37 completed weeks as intrauterine foetal death may result from deteriorating placental functions."
So as usual Lynnekins - you're not only wrong - you're STUPIDLY wrong.
Tho I do admit its amusing as hell to watch you make an ass of yourself in your stubborness to admit ANYONE has a viable point that goes against your stupidity.
"•The only safest way to cure pre-eclampsia is to abort or deliver the child. If pre-eclampsia is not very serious, then a woman can continue with her pregnancy and deliver her baby normally. In case the problem is very serious, premature delivery of the baby takes place."
