Nah ..you know darn well I scattering to you assuming that a,woman who has aborted can not mourn
And what else can I infer from your awful posting about Ladi.
And her child ..
Madam: "You assume that a woman who's had an abortion cannot mourn"

------

That's exactly the opposite of what I believe.

I certainly wish Ladi & other unrepentent post-abortive mothers would mourn the deaths of their babies. That's the only way to forgiveness, healing and wholeness.

Ladi is in denial, is not sorry for what she did to Baby Derrick, and continue to PROMOTE other mom's killing their babies in utero.

She perversely believes that the more mom's who kill their babies in utero, the less culpable she is for killing Baby Derrick.

She's in Lala land.....and will remain so until she faces the brutal facts of what she did.

Frustrates the living hell out of you, that your idea of responsibility isn't forced on women, any more than it is on men.
Too frikken bad, fella.
You want the temporal pleasure w/out the responsibility attached.

You want convenience at the cost of executing an innocent & defenseless human being.

Even you must realize what a narcissistic sociopath you are.

People have been convicted for spreading HIV knowingly. The problem is that straights don't get themselves tested routinely, and spread it unknowingly.

No kidding. It's been only 10 days since I'd seen my youngest grandson, but he was only barely taking steps when the left to visit his other grandparents. When they got here last night, they put him on his feet and he ran right over! Next thing I know, he'll be graduating High School!

I'm glad your grandson's legs weren't ripped off by a pair of abortionist's forceps.

If he had been brutally executed in utero, you would've supported that decision.

I said as long as a woman conceives she is a mom to care for her child or end its life.
You asked about adoption ..And if not about birth moms then adoptive ones??
She lived my boy dearly and yes was his mom??
No, you misunderstood. At no time did I ask about adoption. The point all along was women who miscarry. Maybe they adopt later, but that was a side issue. Since the point made by the op "Forum" and NR was that women who miscarry are already mothers, even if they've never experienced a live delivery, that was the point I was addressing. Adoption had nothing to do with it except as a side issue.

I really think it's subjective. I've known women who've miscarried and they did not consider themselves a mother until they actually had a pregnancy that resulted in a live birth yet I've also met women who've miscarried and when asked how many children she has, she includes the pregnancies she's lost. I've met a woman who gave up a child for adoption but does not consider herself a mother. Then you have women who could not bear children but fostered/adopted and they consider themselves to be mothers. Who's right and who's wrong?
Intentionally killing a preborn baby is wrong.

Part of the problem with miscarriages being devastating to some women is that they consider them children in the womb. My mom had 8 kids and 2 miscarriages. The miscarriages were disappointing but nowhere near tragic. Tragedy was losing the born daughter a month after birth.

It may be generational; more miscarriages used to occur in the past than do now. I think most women understood that the pregnancy wasn't a guarantee of having a baby, and proceeded accordingly. Of course, parents didn't treat kids like the center of the universe, either.

Sue and Rose --
To me, it's all about how one feels personally toward oneself after losing a pregnancy. It's all about how one copes with the loss.
But if another woman doesn't feel the Mom title applies to her, then that is her truth as well.
It used to be, back in the day, pregnancy was hidden from society. Now it seems as if every single baby bump is making its debut on FB and other social media.

Most abortions aren't surgical, twit.
Obskeptic wrote:
<quoted text>
Because their a liberal, and liberals think in nuances. Of course the surgical procedure that results in the death of a gestating human is way different then a natural miscarriage. But folks like you and I have not apparently "developed" our thinking to the point of a liberal, where an apple can be an orange or a mango because they say so.

You and that op, Forum, both claimed pregnant women were mothers. Even if they hadn't yet experienced a live birth.

Why is it you have such a difficult time understanding your own points? There is no difference in the meanings of the words Mother and Mom.

Yeah, my youngest will be 20 at the end of the year. We were going through older home movies on VHS the other day, in preparation for converting them to DVD, and I was thinking it doesn't seem that long ago that the kids were that young :)

Greetings Rose! I think you harbor the assumption that all women would instinctively react/act the way you did/do.
Here's a link -

There's also a help place for women that regret aborting -

I'm guessing that the majority of women fall somewhere between the two extremes.
I have heard about that first one ...And read from others who are sorry.

But AJ in either case,..They were mothers..They made decisions that obviously affected the life of their child.

Only they know if indeed it does,not bother them..maybe the posting helps ..that's good

My dear friend who has,had three..Will not even mention the word.

Has many emotional problems and gets,counselling for other things.

Do I think she shoukd deal with it one way or the other..absolutely .

But I cannot and will not push her. Won't go further but I am there to listen if she needs it .

Anyway.. miscarriage..abortion..birth ...They all effect us as women

All have one thing in common ..mother. at least for a while .

The state of being pregnant means that your biological child/new life has been conceived. If you were to be a surrogate "mother" then you are geststing another womans biological child.

You are a biological mother if you conceive gour child. If that child is given up for adoption, then another woman will"mother" that child (like in Roses case). She has been blessed to have been reunited with her biological son and now enjoys her grandchildren.

Are you suggesting that Rose was not a mother while pregnant with her adoptive son? Because her son had a mother who raised him, was she not still his mother?

I think you people are confusing the word "mother" for "mothering". There are biological mothers and mothers who raise a child as their one. Location of that mothers child is irrelevent(in or out of the womb or / whether she raises thst child or another does).
