Hey knucklehead, your "skintag",while indeed a "living cell",is not your developing offspring/child.
Do you equate "removing" life support from your loved one to a skintag too because they are a "living cell"?
@@
The skin tag can't think, which is the difference. The embryo is a cell, but can't think either. Get it, pinhead?

Sorry for interrupting, but John-K, I'm still seeing cleavage in your avatar picture. Do me a favour, and glance back, from a distance, and you may at least understand what I see. I see a red light on two really big boobs, in a half-moon cut blouse, but when I click on the image, it's obviously not that. What is it?
boy, you sure are a funny kid, johnny, but I like you! so tell me,
What kind of a boy are you, john?

Am I alone in this? Doesn't anyone else see what I'm seeing? I've done ink blot tests before, I'm quite normal. Everyone knows about half of them depicts a kid taking a knife to their Daddy. I say Daddy cause the man in the ink blot picture is obviously a boy on account of the short hair and really big bulge in his pants. Anyways......not to go off on a tangent and forget the real issue here, but I see boobs. I see really, really, big boobs!
Oooh, I know the opening steps to this dance...
Good Morning Rachel!
How've ya been luv?
My dear, two quick questions as I've got to head on in to work...
1. Where's my gal with that trademark "leer" of hers from under her shades?(I keep the symbolic "boob" avatar up for you after all...;P)
2. Will you please tell those Canadian Ice Gods to take this friggin' winter and stuff it someplace already!?!?! Arghh...have had more than enough of this nonsense by now.

Honestly, the image from my avatar was a GIF from the homepage of a really weird website called Fusion Anomaly;
http://www.fusionanomaly.net/
and it was given this weird "tunnel/vortex" treatment by Team Anfy;
http://anfyteam.com/
I used to use it as a screen-saver, until my system no longer supported it.
Watching it twist itself inside-out was and eye-glazing, slack-jawing experience, so, when I'd signed up for Topix and was deciding on an avatar, I had this image in my head and thought "perfect!"
Truly though, you're the only one who's come to the conclusion that it's some sort of subliminal "boob-shot."
Goes to show what an interesting imagination you've go Milady...;)

Have a good day!

My dear, daft, dreary "NR,"
You're compounding two posts and, as usual, drawing the wrong conclusion therefrom.
My first post did indeed state:
http://www.topix.com/forum/nyc/T833PCEP80MM49...
"Also, as an EMT, he knew perfectly well, that her oxygen deprivation was transferred to her unborn "z-e-f." The result of which being a "child" unable to live without artificial assistance."
As an EMT, he ought to know something of that nature "perfectly well."
My next post--to you said;
" And I do apologize for suspecting that an EMT just might have a greater knowledge of the effects of medical trauma than you ever will."
That's where the "suspicion" arose my silly, erm--co-poster...
Keep on swingin' slugger!
;)
P.S., what's the "KKK" connotation for?
I don't happen to be racist--I think any woman of any race, Caucasian, African American, Polynesian, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin, etc., should be able to obtain an abortion if they feel they need one...
Dear John-KKK, what you fail to grasp is your statement is nothing but conjecture based on assumptions - not fact.

"...he knew perfectly well that her oxygen deprivation was transferred to her unborn "z-e-f." The result of which being a "child" unable to live without artificial assistance."

You do not know that this father's baby would've lived with artificial assistance. She very well could've lived a very independent, fruitful & worthwhile life....without ANY disabilities. But since your proabort 'hero' KILLED his baby girl, we won't know.

John-KKK: "P.S., what's the "KKK" connotation for?"

A disproportionate number of black babies are aborted.

Your skin tag DNA-sample result would show it came from your body.

A DNA sample from a preborn baby would indicate it came from the preborn baby's body. It would conclude that baby he/she is a unique, distinct human being.

You're lying again. A DNA test result would only show the sample has human DNA.

Once again, you prove that ALL you have to offer here are lies, childish insults and irrelevancies.

And yet you couldn't provide a link to the information. And they're so important that they use the term "most" instead of actual stats...I guess.

<quoted text> Are you okay ?? I answered you how many times now? YES, it IS a baby. From the moment of my babies conception, he went hrough MANY different stages of developing. Blastocyst was one of them. Zygote was another. Fetus was another. Newborn was another. Toddler was another, etc...
Now, ask me again.
"""If I put a carrot seed in your hand would you say I have a carrot here?""""
Hmmmmm....a "carrot" "seed". The seed would need to be implanted and grown but yes, a carrot awaiting development for sure.
I wouldn't call my husbands sperm(seed) "my baby" until or unless fertilized. Otherwise it is seed.
lmao!! I'll remember this when you bring up your little LTA tirade for the millionth time.

BTW, an embryo is an embryo and a baby is a baby. A blastocyst is a blastocyst and a baby is a baby. I thought you were such a biology expert?

It's generally accepted common knowledge from Guttmacher and the CDC stats supplied here over the years that the majority of induced abortion occurs during the first trimester with a high percentage occurring between 7-8wks gestation. She gave you a name, I forget which one, but here's a Guttmacher link from Dec 2013 with a nice pie chart halfway down the page.

The pie chart claims 61.8% of all abortions occur at less than 9wks.
http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abo...

=====

This doesn't change my concern or curiosity that just because Ink knows this particular stat, she is still for seeing abortion criminalized. To me, it makes more sense to terminate an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy as early as possible even while realizing there's a small percentage of LTAs that aren't found to be unhealthy until later on in wanted pregnancy.

She doesn't care about any of that...for her, those are just pesky little diversions from the only point she ever makes: women who have sex and get pregnant, should gestate until miscarriage, delivery, or death. God's choice. Not up to individuals.

(That's what she says, over and over, and over and over, and over......again.)

You're right, she doesn't and that is her consistent message. Unfortunately, she's not too different from those I was reading the past couple days referencing that man in Texas who was finally allowed to discontinue his pregnant wife's life support. All God this and God that without acknowledging God determined both woman and fetus would die on the kitchen floor if it weren't for MAN hooking her up to machines. On top of that, the majority of those people kept insisting fetus wasn't a fetus at all (forget never being born or breathing on her own), but a baby and what was wrong with people they couldn't/wouldn't admit this? It was mind-boggling!! And very much like Ink here.

I suppose these same people should accept diseases and illnesses as well? They are Gods "will" and therefore no treatment or attempt should be made therefore? Is that what you are saying here? FWIW,nobody knows why she collapsed. It could have been from neglect of her health prior or during pregnancy. Perhaps deliberate or not. Stress perhaps? Her family could have been stressful to her or her job. It took ots toll? IOW,you're projecting. ALL attempts by anyone standardsor personal beliefs,should have been made to save their lives. BOTH parties. Do us a favor and don't enter the medical profession because you don't have it in you to save,fight for life.

From whom did the sample come from? It came from the human being in utero. That's who.
