For me...it is her child the moment it is conceived.
For legal.purposes purposes a baby or ..I hate the word..fetus..in the womb.
Obviously FROM THAT ARTICLE..they consider it a dead CHIld because it's born .
Now talk about someone who is a bit on the confused tongue tied on it

But THSTS a whole different argument
I wonder why pro"choicers" aren't up in arms about it being referred to as a child?

It will be interesting to follow this story to see what the medical examiner calls it, a child or a fetus.
The medical examiner is a physician...My money's on 'fetus'.

You can call it whatever you want, and so can the press. But if the medical examiner's report is published,'fetus' will be used rather than 'child', and it definitely won't say 'baby'.

Wrong. Our abortion law works EXACTLY that way. No one is forced to have an abortion, and no one is forced to carry to term.

Elegant, if you ask me.

Thank you.
You're welcome.

I refer to him that way because that's what he was.
To you. Which is your prerogative. Not everyone feels this way.

<quoted text>"but I do not refer to myself a mother of eight. I'm a mother of two."

Why?
Because I only had two living children.

<quoted text>"Not everyone looks forward to having children. If a pregnant woman chooses to refer to her fetus, rather than to her baby or her child, what business is it of yours?"
As I said in my last post, how I (or you) refer to something does not change what it is.
Correct. A fetus is a fetus, regardless of other, sentimental, terminology.

Some women call theirs "my little oogie boogie". Others refer to it as "The creature within". Doesn't matter...until it's born, it's a fetus.

Sorry if that disturbs you...take it up with the medical profession.

Probably because we aren't in a big snit about it, like you are.

How the press refers to this stillbirth, is nowhere near as relevant as the fact that she was charged with abuse of a corpse, and failing to report the death.

I wonder if No Relevance will name it?

I forgot to add: My condolences to you on the loss of your 6 children.
It's odd, but at this point, I've lost seven, and I STILL consider myself a mother of two.

Go figure.

And thanks.

I think this is a sad example of a sad maybe disturbed woman ..since the judge ordered counselling ???

That has nothing to do with abortion .
But maybe the child part is what Sassy was getting at ???

She confuses me at times. SO it's hard to tell..

Susan, how you choose to deal with your pregnancy is up to you. If you choose to say it was your child, I think most people would respect and honor your decision.

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.
"Young girls who are afraid are the one's. That find themselves at pp, and more then none they are "guided " into an abortion."

G, if these same girls went into a religious place for counseling (Catholic Family Services comes to mind) they would be persuaded ("guided") to remain pregnant based on religious dogma. It's no different except that one suits the fundies here and one doesn't.

Are you suggesting that the law forces you, or anyone, to consider an abortion?

My money is on referring to that poor child as the deceased stillborn .

Thus skirting the whole thing .

She went into labor; the born baby was DOA. Are you really this dense or are you pretending not to know the difference?

Gotta ask why it matters if *others* acknowledge it, Sue. I had a miscarriage at almost 24 weeks along. It was the only male I'd have had. I named him even. Same name as you named yours. But I don't think of him as a lost child. I think of him as a lost pregnancy, a lost potential. Something that never was more than he was... a developing fetus. Minus his kidneys.

It doesn't matter to me if you agree with me or not or if I agree with you or not. What matters to me is that I bore and raised three lovely daughters. Life is for the living. Our dead remain forever loved and forever remembered.

Equating a miscarriage with a stillborn takes a certain level of stupidity usually seen only in plankton.

YOU can call it a child if you wish, just like many people call their pets their children.
