To be realistic, lots of people work on holidays. Medical staff, police, firemen, utility workers, restaurant staff, and many retail businesses have always been open. You arrange your schedule around it. Not to mention that not everyone celebrates thanksgiving or gets together with family.
<quoted text>
True that not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but many who get stuck working in some store do celebrate, and I would love to see upper management come out and work those shitty hours. I suspect they would have no interest in leaving their celebrations to go stand behind a register to serve people who simply have to get out and start the Christmas shop-a-thon.

Then explain why there hundreds of thousands of children who NEVER get adopted.

Idiots like you cannot comprehend that a woman has NO FU**ING OBLIGATION to continue her pregnancy. The fetus has no rights and to many women is not equivalent to a child, born or otherwise.

Would smith's or yates's kids been better off aborted or killed when they were, sentient and conscious of their own drowning?

Did it puzzle you when you heard about Susan Smith or Andrea Yates drowning their children? They were all known to be loving Moms too. They made a choice that they felt was best for their children. Did you view their personal choices as a loving mom or a simply evil? Were their choices a form of denial? I mean what crazy person who think that this was best? Did your "ideologies not let you see anything else"?

Why don't you just ignore the info and pretend nobody provided an answer to your question then? Just keep asking it over and over like an obstinate child would.
Okay since there wasn't any real info. Done deal.

I had to put one of my cats to sleep recently. It was sad but it was best for him. He was going to be suffering soon if I didn't make that hard decision. Thanks for your concern. Feces.

She said estimated by observers. Doesn't that sound vague and biased to you. Also, observers of abortions? I think you shouldn't be taken in so easily.
Ink asks, "...estimated by observers. Doesn't that sound vague and biased to you[?]"

I respond, Maybe those observers names were Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John...?

Is that supposed to make sense because what you are saying is that I can have as much faith in Leslie Reagan as you have in the gospels. That would be nada.

There are more willing parents than there are adoptable babies. So many couples have given up the hope for an American baby and gone to Asia or South America.

Retail might be different these days, I dunno. What I do know is back in the '80s, some stores would open Thanksgiving Day for limited hours. Early Bird hours, mostly, with stores usually closing down for the night by 3pm. Or the opposite, opening at 9pm for an early mad rush on Black Friday. Either way, working was on a volunteer basis with pay at time and a half. When my kids were younger, I worked it. Still had my holiday with my family plus a little extra money for saving or spending, depending.
It was quite the change from the '70s when the only stores open were the 7-Elevens. They never had enough of what folks were needing and the lines were too long. No fast food for those without dinner plans, no gas stations for those who forgot to fill up the night before, no grocery stores with bigger selections in the gravy/cranberry aisle, no extra egg nog.
Until a year or so ago, WA residents couldn't buy alcohol on holidays because the liquor stores were state run. Now you can buy it in the grocery stores. People probably aren't complaining about that.
Not too sure boycotting is any kind of answer, LNM.
No, boycotting won't work, but I just find it sad that there can't be a retail-free Thanksgiving.

Hey moon.
Just read this,post .
Absolutely true ..
Obviously a ploy to get people fortunate enough to have a holiday off
To spend time with their families ...into a,store instead .
I cannot ever remember shopping on FRIDAY after ..let alone on Thanksgiving night .
I do appreciate a few places being open for that last minute cranberry sauce for the extra,folks at dinner ..
But also hope they are closed early so the families,have time .
Some convenience stores are run by folks,wounding celebrate and good for them if they want to make extra money .
But unless,they ate paying over time ..And workers ate,really in need of money ..I think shopping on Thanksgiving nite is,ludicrous ...And doubt they pay extra,.
We have so few old traditions,left ..family thanksgiving going away because of greed is crazy ...And people who go out and shop ..kind of goofy.IMO...And the thing is ...the stores open because,people go ..
And everyone HELLO.
hoping post doesn't bring unwanted attention ..But your post hit a,nerve...
Also I posted before about ELF ON the SHELf. Sit in your home's and order from AMAZON thanksgiving night ..Lol
Seriously got one for grand niece and nephew ...greatest idea in s Lon while ..THey will put them up one at grandma's one at dad's brainstorming of December ..
I'm in for the boycott
.take care
Hi R! Nice to see you.

No, Ink. What that post implied is if the observers names were Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John you'd have no problem believing the estimation.

Well at least that would four named observers. Leslie Reagan has none. It doesn't matter, if you want to believe 2,000,000 abortions a year were performed as seen by observers back in the day, go ahead. I don't.

I know you don't see it that way, but there again, your personal religious views do not constitute a valid reason on which someone ELSE must base their life choices.
Unloved by one doesn't mean unloved by all. Give the kid a chance.

Are you kidding? Leslie Reagan is the author of a book being written about in an article by someone else. You have NFI what Leslie Reagan provided in her book regarding the history of abortion. What you have is someone else (Katha Pollitt) commenting on how thorough Leslie Reagan's book is and where she got her information.

I suggest, before passing your negative judgment (much like one passes gas), you actually read the book. Perhaps you'll learn who those observers were commenting on 2M illegal annual abortions during the Victorian era. Or, as usual, just ignore the answer to your question regarding the number of annual abortions before current times. Apparently the number doesn't sit well with you so you choose to ignore and invalidate it.

Okay, since Ink won't answer any questions, let's recap.

She has a friend who, in Ink's estimation has committed multiple baby murders, cheerfully admitting to how self-centered she is. Furthermore, Ink allows her friend's husband, apparently just fine with the (in Ink's estimation) multiple murders of his babies (which one must assume makes HIM as self-centered a baby murderer in Ink's eyes) to "borrow" her 6 year old daughter to go on a playdate at MacDonald's.

Does this seem like a tall tale to anyone else?

Ink, you're even worse at these CONVENIENT anecdotes than Sassy. And that's saying something, because she's LOUSY at it. Do yourself a favor, and stop trying to bolster your arrogance with supposed real life. It makes you look even more foolish than usual.
