If you attempted to create some sort of emotion,well you just failed!Get this straight:a woman cares more about herself than some goo in her uterus,ok?Your only gonna irritate her and annoy her and it will guarantee her all the more,that she will get an abortion.

Biblically sanctioned abortion. Proof that god loves to abort children.
Numbers 5
11 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 12 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them,‘If any man’s wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him, 13 and a man has intercourse with her and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband and she is [a]undetected, although she has defiled herself, and there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in the act, 14 [b]if a spirit of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous of his wife when she has defiled herself, or if a spirit of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous of his wife when she has not defiled herself, 15 the man shall then bring his wife to the priest, and shall bring as [c]an offering for her one-tenth of an [d]ephah of barley meal; he shall not pour oil on it nor put frankincense on it, for it is a grain offering of jealousy, a grain offering of memorial, a reminder of iniquity.
16 ‘Then the priest shall bring her near and have her stand before the LORD, 17 and the priest shall take holy water in an earthenware vessel; and [e]he shall take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water. 18 The priest shall then have the woman stand before the LORD and let the hair of the woman’s head go loose, and place the grain offering of memorial [f]in her hands, which is the grain offering of jealousy, and in the hand of the priest is to be the water of bitterness that brings a curse. 19 The priest shall have her take an oath and shall say to the woman,“If no man has lain with you and if you have not gone astray into uncleanness, being under the authority of your husband, be [g]immune to this water of bitterness that brings a curse; 20 if you, however, have gone astray, being under the authority of your husband, and if you have defiled yourself and a man other than your husband has had intercourse with you” 21 (then the priest shall have the woman swear with the oath of the curse, and the priest shall say to the woman),“the LORD make you a curse and an oath among your people by the LORD’S making your thigh [h]waste away and your abdomen swell; 22 and this water that brings a curse shall go into your [i]stomach, and make your abdomen swell and your thigh [j]waste away.” And the woman shall say,“Amen. Amen.”

23 ‘The priest shall then write these curses on a scroll, and he shall [k]wash them off into the water of bitterness. 24 Then he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that brings a curse, so that the water which brings a curse will go into her [l]and cause bitterness. 25 The priest shall take the grain offering of jealousy from the woman’s hand, and he shall wave the grain offering before the LORD and bring it to the altar; 26 and the priest shall take a handful of the grain offering as its memorial offering and offer it up in smoke on the altar, and afterward he shall make the woman drink the water. 27 When he has made her drink the water, then it shall come about, if she has defiled herself and has been unfaithful to her husband, that the water which brings a curse will go into her [m]and cause bitterness, and her abdomen will swell and her thigh will [n]waste away, and the woman will become a curse among her people. 28 But if the woman has not defiled herself and is clean, she will then be free and conceive [o]children.

29 ‘This is the law of jealousy: when a wife, being under the authority of her husband, goes astray and defiles herself, 30 or when a spirit of jealousy comes over a man and he is jealous of his wife, he shall then make the woman stand before the LORD, and the priest shall apply all this law to her. 31 Moreover, the man will be free from [p]guilt, but that woman shall bear her [q]guilt

Not if she was on antibiotics for two months for a complicated bladder infection. Dead fetus's remain in women's bodies all the time. What planet do you live on?

The one where removal of a dead fetus is a medical necessity, and where if a doctor treats a pregnant woman for a bladder infection, he knows damn well whether or not her fetus is dead during the process. If a physician treated a pregnant woman for two months, while she carried a dead fetus, and didn't catch the fact that she was even pregnant (especially if s/he's testing her urine routinely due to a bladder infection) s/he would be buried under malpractice lawsuits, and probably lose their license.

You, my dear, are a sick freak, in addition to being a blithering idiot.

"All the time?" Not true. It is definitely not a common occurrence. Here's a very basic article on the subject. I have a more detailed paper that my OB instructor passed to us, but it is very dry material.

btw, there's no need to be snide just because I don't agree with one of your posts, dear.

Thanks for those good points. If a pregnant woman has to be on antibiotics for two months for any reason, the health of both the woman and the fetus would be carefully monitored. If the uterus had not rejected the fetus earlier, which it most probably would have, the death of the fetus would have been detected quite readily. In any case, the uterus will usually expel a dead fetus soon after the death and 6 weeks on the far outside. There have been very rare occurrences of a uterus retaining a dead fetus for a long time. Very rare.

Those verses are really gobbledygook like much of the bible.

There are two key verses that specifically make abortion biblically acceptable.

1. According to the bible, life begins at birth - when a baby draws its first breath. The bible defines life as "breath" in the story of Adam's creation in Genesis 2:7, when God "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

2. Ex. 21:22-25 is very precise in stating that a foetus has NO VALUE and therefore aborting it is of no consequence.

I am not a Christian but I do believe that life starts sometime after conception. I also believe that the woman must have control over her body.

I have asked Christians on other forums (maybe on this one too) about these two verses but have always been met with a deafening silence. Christians absolutely refuse to discuss these verses.

As is evidenced with the lack of response to your post here. I guess this thread has died.

Foster care homes are over run with children who have not been adopted because they weren't the "perfect" child to adopt.
I don't want to have a baby. I do not want to be pregnant. I will not, however, stop having sex. Sorry. I don't believe sex is only for procreation.
Not your pregnancy, not your decision. Deal with it.
The "perfect" child often revolves around an easy to manipulate personality and will always do what their parents say. Since people like rebelling, people who want to be parents haven't had the chance to adopt.
And plus, abortion is a very serious matter. Abortion isn't just like, oh, I don't want this child, I'll go kill it. People have to make wise decisions about what to do about it, and it's very difficult to choose. Just because people are pro-choice, doesn't mean we like to kill babies. That's where 'choice' comes from. She can choose to keep the baby rather than abort it. But neither does it make it OK to force a woman to make a choice she doesn't want to make, whether she's keeping the baby or not.

Sometimes people with high religious views will always take stuff from the Bible as long as it fits neatly in with their opinion. That's why it's safe to assume that these sorts of people think they can prove their point by bible bashing and other nonsense besides and looking so smug about it.

You can call me whatever you like but the HCG hormone would not show up if a fetus was dead! If at all, only for a few days after it died. Why would medical professionals concur that in fact it was a 12 week fetus and was undetected due to the antibiotics preventing infection? The fetus was expelled normally and examined. Maybe it is you who is the blithering idiot?

You first. Unless you are the woman contemplating, seeking, or obtaining an abortion, it's none of your business anyway.
