So she's 20 years old, and a college student, and she can't figure out that if you are throwing up the pill it isn't in your system. Really???????

You're compassion and empathy are underwhelming.

I doubt you'd have made the same comment if she'd chosen to continue that same pregnancy.

She can rationalize it seven ways a week, but the truth is she murdered a human being. She's guilty of murdering an innocent human being and nothing she says will cleanse that "stigma" from her inner being. Hope she suffers well and finds forgiveness somewhere.

If I was her parent I would be mortified that my daughter admitted on TV that she didn't know that if you throw up a pill it doesn't enter your system. What a waste of money on an education.

"Hope she suffers well..." WOW. Thanks for proving, once again, how vindictive you so-called "Christians" are.

How little you murderous hearts know of a Christian mind.

Everyone suffers for mistakes they've made. Hoping she suffers well is hope she suffers the torment she's inflicted on herself with strength and a resolution of forgiveness.

You murderous hearts have nothing to offer her except coldness of heart, eye and mind.

Show me where something like that would be taught standardly, either in high school, or college. Not everyone takes nursing and it's prerequisites, you know.

You're just being a snarky bitch, and you know it.

Again, I doubt you'd have made the same comments if she's chosen to CONTINUE that pregnancy. ESPECIALLY given that you are usually one advocating for good sex ed. In fact, I'll upgrade that to I'm 100% certain you would not have.

She doesn't discuss it with her doctor? She doesn't know how to read the info that comes with the medication? She doesn't know how to use the internet?

Oh PLEASE. I know plenty about the so-called "Christian mind," sparky, especially after reading moronic posts from so-called "Christians" like yourself.

You've made it clear that you ENJOY the idea of people suffering for making decisions you don't personally approve of, whether that decision was an abortion or something else. Personally, I hope this young woman gets reliable counseling if she needs it, and NOT from some religionist kook pretending to be a "therapist."

She probably does know how to use the internet.

I don't recall even one doctor telling me that it could happen. They don't usually point out every possibility for every medication. And guess what? I've encountered doctors who knew less about the possible side effects of a medication that I did. Many of them just push whatever the pharma rep gives them samples of.

I'm sure she could have read the package info, but how many people do read every word, really? Maybe 1%? Maybe slightly more?

And if you say you always read every last bit of info, from every available source, it'll just remind me how much your side lies when you can't make your argument any other way.

Most of us would have to "be embarrassed" if taken to task for such a thing, but people who aren't arrogant hypocrites wouldn't task anyone else with it.

Again, my point, that the other poster would never have made such a comment if the girl had instead chosen to CONTINUE that pregnancy, stands, and that her lack of compassion and empathy are clearly highlighted here.

Ah, just noticed the location. Not "the other poster" then, but YOU, Sue. YOU clearly lack compassion and empathy.

What's with the name change?

"I don't recall even one doctor telling me that it could happen."

What could happen? That if you throw up the medication that you just took, it wouldn't be in your system? Did you really need someone to explain that to you?

FYI, the other poster is me.

Yes, I saw that.

YOU are the one bringing up a discussion with her doctor.

And yes, many people WOULD need to be told that. And many doctors may not think to do so. Some may not even know themselves.

Again, your lack of compassion and empathy just SHINE through here.

You certainly wouldn't have made such comments about the girl if she'd chosen to CONTINUE that pregnancy.

Like I said, you're just being a snarky bitch.

You really think that women are this stupid?

"And many doctors may not think to do so."

Most doctors would assume that a woman would know that if she throws up a pill that it wouldn.t enter her system.

"Some may not even know themselves."

I don't know of a single doctor that doesn't know that if you throw up a pill it doesn't enter your system.

I didn't say women. I said people.

Good for you, that you don't know any such doctors, but unless you've polled them all, you don't know that there AREN'T some of your acquaintance. And how does that prove that no such doctors exist, anyway? I've known doctors who had NO idea about some potential side effects of medications.

Again, you're just being a snarky bitch, and would certainly never have made such comments about the girl if she's chosen to CONTINUE her pregnancy.

Your lack of compassion and empathy are overwhelming.

This girl says "I didn't realize if you're throwing up the pill it wasn't in your system"

So she is not talking about general vomiting, she specifically says that she's throwing up the pill. How effective can a pill be if it is in the toilet instead of in your body? Does she think that it works by osmosis?

Unless you think she was throwing up deliberately to get rid of the pill, yes, she is talking about general vomiting.

You're just being a snarky bitch, without the same compassion, empathy and understanding you'd grant to the girl if she'd chosen instead to CONTINUE that pregnancy.

Don't whine at me, jerk. You know nothing and know not you know nothing. You don't even know what that makes you.

You're stupid and bitter. I reply with compassion and you continue your angry idiocy. That's all you murderous hearts do; then you have the nerve to talk about counseling. Counselors for murder doesn't sound like anything for normal people, but only criminals.

Stack now puts food on her table from having gotten TV exposure for getting pregnant at 16 and aborting.

http://www.katiestack.com/

So, I guess that someone who doesn't know how pills work will take your or your organization's money to speak to you about women's reproductive health.

PT Barnum (or David Hannum) was right.
