<quoted text>I guess the fact that a woman can't get pregnant again with a dead fetus inside of her is no clue that the pregnancy doesn't end when the fetus is dead. The life ended, not the condition of being pregnant. That doesn't end until the fetus is removed. It's her Catholic upbringing I'm sure.
Oh! Those are good points, Ayaka.

My bad. I just told her the abortion hadn't ended yet. Not until all contents were removed. I guess I wasn't looking at it at still being pregnant. However, the aborted pregnancy hasn't ended yet, and that's more of what I meant (since hair-splitting is a pre-req here).

Thanks, Ayaka, for getting me to think on it more. It is always appreciated (and a reason why I don't understand others' reluctance to learn more).

I have no problem with agreeing with you whatsoever, JM. You know that.
I truly don't even know what you are even referring to, as I've been scrolling by many, may posts and just picking here and there.
Please don't take it personally. It really is far from it, okay?
Katie is saying that after a miscarriage...even days later if any"part of the conception" is left in the womb by accident....that the woman is still pregnant.
You agree?

<quoted text>It says abortion, the distinction being (which i said many many times) is the type. Abortion = spontaneous, missed, threatened, elective, failed attempt = distinction
All you're proving is that you can't read for comprehension.

"Dilation and curettage" = procedure.
"Surgical management of an incomplete abotion" [=] purpose after miscarriage.

That is what was stated on your post with codes.

It says ["surgical management OF"...] type of abortion,(spontaneous, missed, threatened), when it's after a miscarriage.

That in now way is stating it's an abortion procedure for a natural abortion. It's stating it's a surgical management of one.

The doctors are the experts. I trust their assessment of the situation. The girl and her mom were Catholic. They would not have taken an abortion lightly.
We have no medical records to know the truth.

Do you think this mother took the raping of her daughters by her husband for more than three years lightly?

You did vilify her, because you belittled the importance to HER, of her CHOICE.

I understand she was carrying twins. Think of the size of twins at the point of viability. I don't see her uterus bursting. Other nine yr olds and younger have gone full term and didnt die.

Would the babies have most likely survived medical intervention at that stage of life plus their size? Probably not :( Nobody knows. Miracles happen :)

At least the babies weren't deliberately slaughtered. Tragic enough that the poor innocent baby girl was raped without adding MORE tragity to another two innocent babies.

IMO, I think Foo's post was one of grief induced anger. I don't think Foo was exploiting this but rather was venting her upset. The whole situation is indeed a tragic loss. A happy time gone seriously wrong. I feel sorry for all involved.
Sorry, the "grief induced anger" excuse doesn't work.

She was here an hour before she made that comment and was laughing, but supposedly this death happened that day. She was in here an hour after making the post and posted her usual way.

If it's a true story, it wasn't something she had any right to USE the way she did. That's disgusting. The woman who made that choice would probably not appreciate being used the way Foo used her story. To try to make an argument FOR abortion.

You're right, I just hate to see people die so unexpectedly and leave so many grieving people behind.
Lots of unexpected deaths produce that result. Suicide and this type of situation aren't different than accidents producing the same results.

Because according to Catholic doctrine a Catholic woman does have every right to save her own life if a pregnancy is killing her.

That's why I don't think the story is true.

Meanwhile DAILY she fights us that the fetus is not a baby nor her child but now"it" is. She's a drama queen.LOL
Yes, she did put it that way, and that's VERY interesting.

It's interesting how when it's a friend of theirs, like Katie's friend; or a family member, like Foo posted, that the person's fetus that died that they want condolences for is called a "baby" by the pro-choicer.

But women who have miscarriages, like Sue, didn't lose a baby.

True, but we do have her 6 Catholic doctors. Their opinion should count for something, should it not?

Hard to say. Those are tough situations. I've always wondered how anyone could tolerate another person harming their child in any way. Who knows how abusive and controlling he was to the mother.

Sure, miracles happen. Every day. But, for whatever reason, her 6 Catholic doctors did not think she could make it, and advised accordingly. I would not second guess them, as I was not there and I am no expert.

Who CARES if she disagrees with the girls choice. Not HER business remember?
She even posted a womans pictures as her avatar(exploiting her) to gain attention while lying about her story. We're awaiting THAT proof that fooL supposedly had saved @@
Who cares about anyone's opinion about anything, for that matter? Everybody has a right to speak her/his mind. I'm sure you believe in our right to free speech. Being politically correct isn't Foo's style nor yours nor mine nor 90% of the regulars on this site. This is Topix, Home of Incendiary Debate. Let's not be hypocrites.

You and the bullshit you claim as "civil rights" are ridiculous.

The woman made her own conscious decision, for herself, to risk HER OWN life rather than have her unborn child killed. That child, according to the story, was non-viable and would have died either way.

Power of attorney and someone making a decision on behalf of someone ELSE, is not comparable to that. IF someone specifies in their medical directive that they do not ever want any unborn child of theirs to be killed even if it means she'll die, that again is HER decision.

The comparisons you're trying to make are about people who made decisions for others and with no medical directive. NOT the same thing.

So, your comparisons have NOTHING to do with that woman's story.

I have no words to describe just how irrational display yourself to be.

reminds me of her Ariel story...a supposed kidnapped 14 yr old child who was kidnapped, raped, beaten and dumped in a park to die. A PL suggested amber alert and fooL was like "good idea". She posted her picture because she knew this girl and her mom very closely.
Ends up that Arial was a 20 year old woman who got off a bus and her whereabouts were unknown so mom alerted police. News report link(shown by foo) said it was a misunderstanding.
Wow, that's disgusting. Not surprising though, seeing how she used someone else yesterday.

I believe not one of the regular PC posters is playing with a full deck. The behavior, the lies, the irrational claims and arguments...nothing that indicates a "healthy" mind.

"I guess the fact that a woman can't get pregnant again with a dead fetus inside of her is no clue that the pregnancy doesn't end when the fetus is dead. The life ended, not the condition of being pregnant."

You are trying to base that on the fact that she can't get pregnant until...?

Gee, I guess a woman's pregnancy hasn't ended after she gives birth either, according to your logic, because she can't get pregnant right after giving birth. No fetus, no placenta, no pregnancy, yet can't get pregnant either. Based on your stupidity, she's still pregnant and would need a D&C to abort that pregnancy?
lol

Stop before you dig yourself in deeper. Holy cow.

"Ovulation after Childbirth
Most women experience three to eight weeks of bleeding following childbirth. In the first days immediately following the birth of your baby, this bleeding is bright red in color. As time passes, this bleeding, also known as lochia, will become lighter in flow and color, signaling the mother's uterus is nearly fully healed. The chances that a mother will ovulate during the first six weeks after giving birth is relatively low, although not impossible."

A woman having JUST given birth can not get pregnant either. NOT because she's still pregnant, but because her hormones are all screwed up.
