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 :)
And it won't when they 're forty either lol.

No one wants to take away your right to be here, or to be religious. However, many posters argue using their religion as though it applies to those who don't follow it. And they want the law to reflect their religious beliefs, binding everyone in a country where we have freedom of religion. A freedom that INCLUDES not having others' religious beliefs forced on us.

Yes, thanks for quoting my post showing the side issue of adoption, Rose, when the main point was about women who miscarry and whether or not they were mothers.

Well I think the term expectant would apply if they have the baby
If she antitrust then he was still the Father if the baby she aborted.
The above is your answer to how an expectant father is Dad when he is not carrying the pregnancy?

I asked because you claimed pregnant woman was Mom because it was her responsibility to properly nourish her embryo/fetus and properly care for her pregnancy.

(I would have worded a pregnant woman is responsible for properly caring for and nourishing herself while pregnant.)

You are so out of touch with reality!
La has posted her a bazillion times she regrets her abortion. She hates abortion. She would focus on lowering the number of annual abortion to zero with comprehensive sex education in all public schools and affordable/free birth control available to all.
All the crap you posted above is nothing but your deranged fantasy. Including the sex and name of the embryo La regretfully aborted in order to finish her college degree so that her parents' hopes and dreams were not dashed -- as they had been with La's sibling.
ALL OF THIS INFO is located right in this forum, on this very thread. Study up. Or keep showing us what a failure you truly are... Your choice.

<quoted text> Rose didn't have any other children in the household. Point is that once you create your child, you are a biological mother. Whether that child is one day old in utero or one day old outside the womb ...or...whether or not you mother that child or someone else does..
Having other children is irrelevent. A mother who miscarries or has an abortion IS still a mother because they have produced a biological child. Mothering that child when born is a different subject.
A woman can be pregnant with another womans child even. THAT is when you can consider a pregnant woman not a mother.
Yes I have always been my son's mother in the womb ..as I talked to him.

Through all the years he grew up .....

So taking an innocent life is your way of trying to be like men? Women were created to give life, not kill it. You're becoming less who you are....to the point of executing innocents. All for the sake of becoming like men?

"I'm going to kill this baby! I wanna be more like a man and less like a woman! I'll show them! If I have to kill my own baby girl to prove I'm as "powerful" w/out a penis as a man who w/ a penis, I'll KILL her!! This is about me and my make-believe power struggle!

If the point of the article was not science, the claim that the scientific community establishes that life begins at fertilization with a whole and complete human being would not have been made.

"When discussing the philosophical and/or ethical issues, surrounding the start of life the desire for science to provide a clear cut human/non human boundary is very understandable. We need to be able to define this because it is important in our laws and our understandings. However, even from the brief descriptions given above, it is clear that there is no simple answer that science can give. It may well be that reality doesn't have an answer for us, and that "when does life begin?" is, in fact, a meaningless question.

Scott Gilbert concludes based on these premises that:

”The entity created by fertilization is indeed a human embryo, and it has the potential to be human adult. Whether these facts are enough to accord it personhood is a question influenced by opinion, philosophy and theology, rather than by science."

"No consensus on when human life begins

03 November 2008

By Alison Cranage
Appeared in BioNews 482

An international poll has shown a range of opinions about when human life begins biologically. It comes ahead of a proposed constitutional amendment in Colorado, US, which could confer legal rights to embryos at the point of fertilization."
http://www.bionews.org.uk/page_13559.asp

"Life

Definition

noun, plural: lives

(1) A distinctive characteristic of a living organism from dead organism or non-living thing, as specifically distinguished by the capacity to grow, metabolize, respond (to stimuli), adapt, and reproduce

(2) The biota of a particular region

Supplement

There is no consensus regarding the answer to the question as to when does life begin. Does it begin at the time of fertilization or the time before or after that? The origin of life is also contestable. Despite of the irresolute answer for questions about life, the basic characteristics of a living thing are as follows:
•with an organized structure performing a specific function
•with an ability to sustain existence, e.g. by nourishment
•with an ability to respond to stimuli or to its environment
•capable of adapting
•with an ability to germinate or reproduce"

This is serious business, Rose. Removing civil rights from grown women and half-grown girls will lead to what happened in Ireland last Fall when the dentist was allowed to die instead of receiving a life-saving abortion. I do not want that for America's child-bearing women nor for my daughters and granddaughters.

Thanks.
I believe I said someplace that how a woman feels on her miscarriages is different each woman.

And also changes once she has a child.

Even on my own kids feeling

But if I did not make that clear ..I know your feelings are different ..

Mine too..I don't spend my days mourning my lost grandchildren.

But as each one was lost ..I mourned them but knew they were with God ..

1) Lala's child is not imaginary.

2) Lala has been very clear that she has no regrets for what she did. She said, "I knew what I had to do, and I did it."

If Lala regretted her abortion, how could she possibly have posted this?:

Yep, it certainly DOES frustrate the stuffing out of these male anti-choice MORONS like NoRelevance that women get to decide for ourselves as individuals whether to be mothers or not. Two centuries ago and more, that's exactly what a "woman's lot" was "supposed to be." Marriage, children, unpaid housework (if a woman wasn't rich), and that's IT.
Thanks to the feminists who fought hard battles for women to have CHOICES in life rather than mandates, it's much better for women, much to the fury of the regressive guys who would prefer to "keep women in their place." As you said, too frikken bad for them.
Motherhood: OPTIONAL, not required.
But sadly the original lib movement centered on equal pay and birth control ...both of which ..including PP I supported.

Now sadly Abortion has become its banner.

If we don't agree we are anti feminist ..And that is just NIT true for many of us..especially us women who grew up in the sixties!!!

But be prepared for some of the same crap to be flung toward you. I wince when I read their posts to you.

I like you. We may have differing points of view, but we can post back and forth civilly and politely. And I would watch your back just like I would with any one else.

The PLers here, JM, NR, K&P, the trolls, not so much. They play dirty and write dirty. With these folks, it's "us against them". Totally anything but Christian.

Please be careful about what info you give out here. And be prepared to have it be used against you at some point in the future.

Yes, am aware this is what you believe.
The entire point of the prolife movement, Rose, is to claim life begins in utero, remove women's civil rights established at their births, and transfer it to unknown and unknowing embryos and fetuses. It is insidious when other women work to remove their own civil rights along with strangers all while claiming to care and love women and their babies. jmo

Oh I get that I am welcome here and thank you ..Forum was a bad choice if words.

Was trying to say there are some in this country who resent anything in the PUBLIC FORUM having anything to do with God or his people.

But it seems we have atheists ..And professional women on the pro life
Side of the argument .

It's been assumed ..by me also ...That the main grounds were that we believe the babies in utero have a soul.

But obviously they believe their little lives have value fir other reasons ...

You want to punish girls/women for consenting to sex by insisting they gestate an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy. If in the process they turn their lives over to God and become productive Christian citizens, so much the better. Right, NR?
I don't support forcing girls/women to get pregnant.

Once pregnant, their baby IS.

You support executing what already IS. A unique, distinct human being exists. DNA analysis is conclusive on this fact. You can't dispute it. So.....
