Katie V.: "Science isn't wrong about smooth cortexes unable to feel pain."
You still intentionally omit contributions from the sublplate zone and thalamus? After all these years, you still ignore modern science?
Wow, you're really, really ignorant.
A smooth cortex is equivalent to a dead hard drive. You might have the most up-to-date programs installed, but these can do absolutely nothing if your computer isn't capable of processing it.

Because Roe v Wade already restricts induced abortion at 24 weeks gestation.
Like Bitner has been saying to you, nobody has kept track of which abortions are elective and which are therapeutic at this point. However, the odds favor these are more therapeutic than elective since the majority of elective abortion is done during the first trimester.
Meaning, for the majority of women, these are wanted pregnancies where something has gone wrong.
It is not up to clergy, politicians, or nosy parkers to determine woman is healthy then try to criminalize it when nobody is keeping track of this data.
<quoted text>
Science isn't wrong about smooth cortexes unable to feel pain. There are other articles out there you can research about the comparisons of fetal brain and preemie brain. There have been plenty of studies done.
Besides, the amniotic fluid also acts as an anesthetic. Fetus is doubly protected.
Delivery isn't exactly an easy chore for either woman or newborn. Don't you think if a newborn were able to feel as you are trying to imply, than those injured during the birthing process would react strongly their injuries?
My second granddaughter's shoulder was caught up behind her during delivery. She did not respond to it although it was horribly bruised for more than a week. And creased from the unnatural way it was bent. It has since worked itself out and there is no lasting nerve damage from what's been seen by her pediatrician.
<quoted text>
The main focus of ACers is to "deliver fetus early whether it survives or not" without any regard to its quality of life no matter how short it is.
A couple years ago the ACers were all over themselves because a woman was denied a therapeutic abortion when it was learned her amniotic fluid had leaked out and she was not reproducing any more. A child in utero without amniotic fluid does not develop properly. You can look it up.
Anyway, baby was delivered, but didn't have the ability to breathe. It had not produced surfactant yet. And so it drowned, like a fish out of water. But the ACers here were all over this as if it was humane and loving. Watching baby suffocate was anything but loving, imo.
The pregnant woman was denied making a decision between her doctor and herself because of a brand new law criminalizing abortion past a certain gestational week. Maybe it was 20, I forget.
You think it's right to do that to another woman? Remove her right to do what she thinks is best for her family, her fetus, herself?
So removing the uterine contents ..ie the baby by killing it is protected by amniotic fluid..But a tiny preemie. May indeed feel pain with the same amount of brain .

Sorry the are aware ..at some level..And 24 weeks is viable

Yes you deliver the baby ..you don't go in and kill it to save the mom..

And God forbid it dies...at leAst at some level of awareness it feel loved......Nit killing violently .

<quoted text>Do you know why people get annulments? Because they break the Sacrement of marriage which would men if one doesn't want to have children, or follow the Catholic doctrine ansd even rising the children wrong and last but not least , using birth control. The U'S. has a very materialistic lifestyle that cause a lot of problems. Maybe your mad at Mother Church because She didn't grant you an annulment? Hhm?
So how do we explain Teddy Kennedy getting an annulment against his wife's wishes so he could marry someone else In the CHURCH .

HYPOCRISY ..that's how ..But I'm sure he contributes a lot yo the diocese..

Same way he got away With. Mary Joe. That poor young lady...

Because you were expounding on annulment ..It's a Catholic sanctioned divorce
TOLD TO US publicly BY poor MRS.KENNEDY

S he felt that was as if her marriage had not happened ..And what of her children .

So we have no divorce ..just annulment

No Nobody control..just NFP....which is exactly the opposite of when the bible says God told the people yo have sex

I have no problem calling it birth control ..And seeing it as a lesser evil than abortion .

But I'm NOT a hypocrite saying my church says one thing is ok if we call it something else.
I don t know how God feels about it .honestly .

Katie..there is an old ..Paleo cortex ..That fights for survival

And a neocortex. That gives better brain function.

If t hat child is being killed killed once it has a brain it will try unsuccessfully to survive.

If a baby is born at say 22 weeks ..do they feel pain or shy away from the feel of a needle drawing blood for example .

I'm saying enough is enough ...

I don't want to see any elective abortion..No semantics please .

But if you cannot even set A20 week limit on t he chance that after that would be extreme cruelty ..We are never going to agree.

I hope it becomes law because it's cruelty FOR convenience..

Unless it is for the life of m o m or baby ..keep that baby in t he womb where it belongs.

Have you ever seen a preemie. How can y oh even imagine violently killing such a being ???? IN OR OUT of the womb .

That says it all. Whether or not you believe in the Religious Right, it believes in you. And counts on people just like you in its quest to turn America into a theocracy.

Besides, who knew you were being forced to watch other women's private medical procedures that merit absolutely no concern from you?

Even if the fetus is aware on some subliminal level like you seem to believe (and insist others believe as well), it is over quickly, painlessly. Yes painlessly because there is nothing to process the pain. Nothing.

You treat the abortion procedure as something malicious, twisting the reality of it for whatever reason I can't imagine.

Try to take a step back and look at the whole picture. Try, for the sake of women's civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy, to see beyond the fetus.

The ACers here are fetal focused to the exclusion of women. It seems you are, too.

But Katie

I don't have watch to know it's,happening ...a child who has at the very least awareness is being violently killed ...

Not delivered early to save the mother's life in a life and death situation ..But purposely killed before removing its remains .

If it can move..touch it's face..umbilical cord..move in response if you touch him...it is aware. And J do nit have to be a member if a Rdkigiuis Right movement to feel empathy fir that child.

It's nit even religious .

People cry over pets for heaven sake ..I did.

That is not religious or a theocracy..It's plain and simple humanity
KATIE not a conspiracy..

We ..who feel as I do ..see them as babies

I woukd see them as babies no.matter if I believed in God or not.

I was agsinst abortion BEfore I became a,Christian

Yes I believe they are loved by God..He will care fir them .

But to.mske their last moments of life a torture of which they are aware..Is inhumane ..We treat dogs better than that!!

..But if we as humans can show no mercy to these. What kind if humans are we.

You are correct in that I really do not like ANY abortion But in this case we are speaking of it makes abortion advocates feel good to say it's painless. And rare.

I do nit believe it for a,second .

But since it is legal to abort ..in a purely e elective abortion..

MAKE up your mind earlier ..when there is NO AWARENESS.

AND AGAIN Not speaking of early DELIVERY .

Doctors of what - philosophy? Not gynecology or obstetrics, that's for sure.

As far as what constitutes an abortion, there first has to be a pregnancy. If the woman isn't ovulating, as a result of the hormones she is using to suspend fertility, then she cannot GET pregnant, much less lose a pregnancy.

If you could fix stupid, you'd have started with yourself.
