Rose isn't a catholic; why would she care what "early church leaders" said?

I LOVE Saki; that's one of my favorite stories. He was the elegant, british love child of Poe and rod serling.

Sassy has a penchant for 'romance at short notice'.
In other words, she makes stuff up out of whole cloth, and expects others to believe it. It's kind of her thing.

Plus I think that is something made up ..Not even from PETER.

Lot of fiction for the masses floated around early on...

The kind of thing that the DaVinci code made famous

They put the works they found to be true and inspired in the bible.

From w hat I read on that thing ..they did not allow it to be even read in church let alone put in the bible .

And I know you think it's ALL fiction Peter..But your point on that one is spot on ..

Saki was Munro's pen name. Like Mark Twain was really Samuel Clemens.

Great site - used it A LOT when I was teaching.

Kids would much rather read something on the internet than in a book....doesn't make any difference to me, as long as they're READING...

I've had nine abortions. Damn, that's almost a football team! I sure hope they never outlaw abortions. At least till I hit menopause. And the men keep footing the doc bill.

<quoted text>The article states quite clearly what she faces charges of: concealing the death of a child, and abuse of a corpse. She should have reported it, and had the authorities dispose of the body, rather than just pitching it in the garbage on her own. You're not allowed to bury your dead gramma in the backyard, either. There are laws governing the disposal of dead bodies.
Obviously, the judge thought she would benefit from grief counseling, as well.
What puzzles me, is the large amount of bail. Half a mil for a health code violation, seems a mite stiff...but maybe it was that 'abuse of a corpse' bit. Folks tend to get a little nuts over stuff like that, sometimes.
"The article states quite clearly what she faces charges of: concealing the death of a child,"

Concealing the death of a "child"??????? What "child"????

No girl will comprehend in full that her choice will destroy not only her childs life but hers as well. ONLY those sho have been there can give that girl the truth. A woman who has acknowledged her grave mistake can be honest enough. The rest who are in denial will deceive her because she is still living in denial.
The truth sets you free.
In your case, "the truth" is really nothing more than your OPINION; which, thankfully, any woman is free to reject.

An actual truth is that NOT all women regret having an abortion. On the contrary, they are relieved that the option was there, although red states like Texas, Ohio, and others are doing their best to deny women access to both abortion and contraception by shutting down clinics which provide both services.

For stories from women who DON'T regret having an abortion, here's the site:

<quoted text>Well, I didn't write the article, and I don't have any control over the wording of the law or charges - the words you have such difficulty with, are not mine, but those of the various legislators and law enforcement involved in the case, so maybe you should be taking this up with them.
As far as the body is concerned, it was legally the corpse of a child....since it was
(wait for it)
BORN.
So it doesn't need to take a breath to be a "child"??? Since when? I thought that taking a breath was required.

<quoted text>Your word salad isn't decipherable, dear. Let me help you out:
The expelled fetus became a child at birth, per the laws of The United States. Unfortunately, it was not granted the 'right to life', because it was already dead.
I stated the corpse was legally that of a child - not that the corpse itself was 'legal' or 'illegal'.
Nowhere did I state that this, or any, fetus' body was sacred.
And nowhere did I state that this was not a born child. I believe you took issue with that, too.
Make up your f**king mind already.
Isn't a "child" a person? Doesn't it become a person when it takes it's first breath?

See i am prolife. I assure you that I have comforted more post abortive women then all proaborts.com bined.
You people don't care about them nor do you care about girls and women in crisis pregnancies. Actions speak louder than words.
No, you are ANTI-CHOICE. Your idiotic posts have made that fact abundantly clear. But again, NOT all women regret having an abortion. What they do regret is GETTING pregnant in the first place, and they were relieved the option of abortion was available to them. Here are some of their stories:

http://www.imnotsorry.net .

What really seems to piss all you anti-choicers off is that pregnancy, birth, and children are NOT wanted by all women. Too bleeping bad. A woman has the same right NOT to have children as she does to become a mother. Whether YOU approve of that right or not is irrelevant.

Motherhood: OPTIONAL, not required.

<quoted text>Her "God" generally 'kills the fetus' before it's stillborn or miscarried too, fella.
If it's born alive, they don't call it a stillbirth.
If it's born at all, they don't call it an abortion.
Seems the pair of you would like everyone to agree that throwing one's stillborn into a garbage bag, without notifying anyone of the death, is fine and dandy, as long as elective abortion is legal.
What are ya....stoopid?
During a spontaneous abortion, and some elective abortions does the woman deliver a child or a fetus?

<quoted text>She had the choice, and made it: but wants to take it away from others because she made the wrong choice FOR HERSELF.
Her story is: "I had an abortion, I regretted it, and now I firmly believe it's wrong, for anyone and everyone else, to have one."
She's more than welcome to her opinion, but legally applying her opinion to every other woman in the country, would be ridiculous, wrong, and (thankfully) Unconstitutional, hypocrisy.

I hope all worked out for your sister. I know several young girls who got pregnant at a young age, and their babies have really helped them, if nothing else, they learn the world isn't. All about them, and they must get it together, to help another who depends on them.
I can name a dozen, just off the top of my head, who went from party all night /sleep all day, to a responsible parent. It's. Not easy by any means, but many have parents /others who will help them, but wouldn't. Help them continue in their old lifestyle.
And there are also girls/women who neglected, abused, and even killed their born children, chiefly because they never WANTED a child in the first place.

You're never going to convince me that teen pregnancy/teen motherhood is a good thing for girls, G. It has far too many negative impacts on a girl's life for me to ever say it's a positive thing, so I won't. And I make no apologies for not doing so.

I didn't write the article, nor did I write the law....but a stillbirth is BORN, so it's apparently a child in her State, even though it's dead.
