Did you know Katie's preborn baby died in utero.

She named him "Aaron."

I know what you're thinking: One minute Katie Van der Sloot says calling preborn babies "useless wads of cells" is not disrepsectful to anyone...then she shares that she named her preborn baby son "Aaron."

She's a mess.

And so are you.

<quoted text>It's not free. When restrictive laws are passed such as requiring ultrasounds, counseling and other tests be done prior to, it drives up the cost which makes it more of a hardship on women already struggling financially to get an early and safer abortion. When this happens and she has to wait weeks before she can afford it and if she's still determined to terminate, the fetus is further along and the more risk there is to the mother. Then there is transportation because clinics close for whatever reason they do. So imo, we're going to see an increase in later term abortions being done than is presently reported.
Maybe it will all be covered under Obamacare.

It is a mantra on here that women should have 'healthy sex lives' and shouldn't be forced to give birth to the resulting child.

How are you ladies going to have a 'healthy sex life' if all the guys keep it in their pants?

Good evening "Ink!"
Always a pleasure to "see" you my friend!
I believe that what "Cpeter" and others are referring to, is not the fact that Roe-V-Wade has made abortion the irrefutable "Law-of-the-Land," but that there are a great many State legislators and judiciaries who are going out of their way to pass "State" laws that will make it as difficult as possible for woman to obtain an abortion should she choose to have one.
The latest "dust-up" has been in Texas, where the Supreme Court has refused to intervene in that state's decision to make abortions as unattainable as they can by surreptitiously inserting all sorts of nonsensical requirements under the guise of, "protecting the patients..."
http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/magnolia/news/...
They're not the slightest bit interested protecting the women seeking that procedure, they're using this as a tactic to block women from access to that procedure to "protect the unborn."
This is what folks on the PC side of the aisle worry about; not that Roe will be overturned any time in the foreseeable future, but that efforts such as this, state-by-state, that have a majority of voters who're PL, will do their best to make it illegal at the local level.
Hey there John,

I understand what fears they have about abortion being incrementally restricted.

This is a good example of states rights. I believe that different thinking people are in different states. I know that at one time I didn't like the high taxes and personal restrictions of the state I lived in and moved to the next state that suited my ideals better. I assume people still have that choice.

A few more restrictions and obligations would have kept Gosnell from doing business in PA.

You would only think/believe this if you were completely unable to realize it was my fetus, my pregnancy, my business. Your fetus, your pregnancy, your business.

Why? Would those not have been neglected as well by the Health Dept authorized to inspect and shut down Gosnel?

"Mandi Davis, a sanitation specialist in the environmental engineering section, told her colleague Ken Gruen and then-Assistant Health Commissioner Izzat Melhem about the complaint. Knowing the severity of the situation, Davis demanded a visit to the clinic be conducted. Current Philadelphia Health Commissioner Donald Schwarz told the grand jury notes on her memo said a visit took place, but that is the only evidence that supported the claim.

The city health department, however, could not produce any report of that site visit. Nor is there evidence that the department took any action against Gosnell for his dangerous handling of medical waste or for his failure to have an approved infectious waste plan, as is required by the city Health Code."

His lack of affiliation with a hospital would have closed him down.

Katie,you degrade,dehumanize and show total disrespect for your child or anothers,while they are developing in the womb. You are here fighting for the right to kill them.Now BECAUSE it suited ou,you gave this "useles wad of cell" a name? Did it make you feel good or something? Yet,your other miscarried child,you didn't name? THAT one was a nothing because he/she was a few weeks behind in gestation age?

You are very confused.

Let me tell you something...abortion would not fix YOUR problem because you do not carry the pregnancy nor do you carry any medical risk. YOU have nothing to worry about...nothing. Abortion fixes many problems for those who have medical issues, for those who have been raped, for those who are incapable of raising a child on their own, for those who will struggle through life with no support systems or help. WHO are YOU to say? YOU will never be in those POSITIONS. AND you really don't care about those who are in those positions. YOU feel that YOUR religious beliefs should trump all.
Killing your own child "fixes" life?

I find it pitiful that you have this need to act like women just have to kill their child instead of not sleeping with a man who will leave her with "no support system or raising a child on her own". What is wrong with you people that you can't prevent this NEED to kill your child?

Abortion is the anwer? Shouldn't a woman respect herself enough to not allow herself to be used as a sex toy? Shouldn't she learn self-control? Shouldn't she use her brain and abstain during her fertile time if she is an over-sexed woman who can't go a day without sex for the sake of not becoming pregnant?

FAR FETCHED hu?

I miss my daughter who would be 21 a week after Christmas. I missed seeing her graduate high school. I missed teaching her how to drive. She was going to have her first lesson the next day. We were going to have lasagna for dinner the night she died. She was going to clean her room. It was a 4-day weekend. Semester break. She was a sophomore in high school.

She almost died before being delivered. I almost died, too. Had we died, we never would have known each other. I never would have held her to my breast and nursed her. I never would have comforted her cries when she was too cold or too warm. I never would have heard her first word (it was not Mama), seen her take her first steps, or hear her giggle.

I did not have anything with my lost pregnancy other than lost dreams. He didn't survive, he didn't live. He wasn't as real to me as my youngest daughter is. She lived. She breathed. In and out. Over and over and over until the morning she stopped.

Don't you ever talk to me about dehumanizing anything you evil thing draped in a fake Christ. You think you're "honoring" a 30 plus year old fetus who never saw the light of day or felt the sun on his cheeks? You are disrespecting all lost pregnancies with your fakey fake concern for dead fetuses you'll never know about if you're not told about it. You wouldn't know humanity if it hit you right between the eyes. Especially when you continue trying to steal women's civil rights out from under them. Right out from your own daughters' feet!!

Your smugness won't save you if/when you have real issues to deal with in your life time.

I can't help but agree wholeheartedly.
This is a strange sort of phenomena I've witnessed lately with some members of the PLM. They seem as though they're genuinely insulted by the fact that they're actually "winning" by fits-and-starts the whole argument regarding abortion. More and more people who identify themselves as Pro-Choice, are agreeing that there ought to be reasonable restrictions as to when, where, how, and even "why," abortions should be performed.
It would seem that public opinion--for the most part--is trending against "Late-Term-Abortions, " and yet we have our darling "Sassafrass," attempting to argue that if we dare to embrace such a notion, we're not "PC."
Talk about "sore-winners!"
Ah,my ears were ringing. I knew somebody was talking about me.

This "strange sort of phenomena" that your witnessing lately, is your imagination my sweet John-K. I have a question for you Mr "I am Pro-choice" regarding your above statement "MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WHO IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS PRO-CHOICE,ARE AGREEING THAT THERE OUGHT TO BE REASONABLE RESTRICTIONS A TO WHEN,WHERE,HOW AND EVEN"WHY" ABORTIONS SHOULD BEPERFORMED"........

You claim to be PRO-CHOICE,but you want to give YOUR opinion as to when,why,how,etc...to anothers pregnancy where it is said that it is NONE of your business. So,it shouldn't be HER choice,HER BODY,HER PREGNANCY? Why do you people contradict yourself? Here's what you are,...you are PRO-YOUR CHOICE-ABORTION when YOU think she should and when YOU don't think she should,you become ANTI-HER CHOICE-ABORTION.

Allow me to sum this up for you. You talk out of both side of your mouth. ANYONE who thinks like you(your rules,not hers)is just as hypocritical.

See,John-K my dear frie&#326;d,you and I are pretty much on the same pge. We are both ANTI-CHOICE. The difference between us is that you support her choice(what a good guy you are)when YOU think it is okay(in the first trimester).
Have a great day!!!
