I disagree. A woman still has a choice to attempt saving her childs life.

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.

Why do you think so?
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.

<quoted text> 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 :)
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.

"Definition of PROXY

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.

<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.
"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.

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).

LOL, her point was senseless. The ignorant leading the ignorant.

"Let's not be hypocrites."

That's what you've been and Foo too. Pro-choice hypocrites.

What gave Foo the right to take the story of an obviously pro-life "Catholic" woman, she indentified as her BIL's sister, and USE it to make an argument FOR abortion? NONE.

It's exploitive and disgusting, and it's being used in ways opposite to what this woman LIVED. That is IF the story is even true. If it isn't, that's a whole other degree of disgusting.

I don't need every person to agree with me. What is telling in adult discussions, is who and who isn't mature enough to admit that they're wrong.
You PCers haven't proven a D&C after miscarriage is medically considered/documented as an "abortion procedure". In fact it IS only considered a dilation and curettage procedure.
Being a nurse doesn't mean you know everything medically, and when you don't, the wise thing to do would be to stay out of discussions that are about subjects you don't know about. I happen to know about this one, which is why i'm NOT staying out of this discussion.
You are simply stuck in this war of words, which is all it is. I'm not concerned; I know what I'm talking about. I am secure that I am correct. If I was not, I would say that I'm incorrect. I hope you can live with I know how read a chart, interpret most physicians' "unique" (lol) language, and chart properly, myself. I have spent many hours doing it. More importantly, I know how to follow the protocol of any facility in which I may work. If you were my employer, I would chart the way you wished, as long as it wasn't harmful to patients or myself, and didn't violate ethical code. Flexibility is an invaluable character trait; I'm sure you agree. We will just have to agree to disagree on this a particular little item.

Do you have any direct quotes from the six doctors or only reports from biased media?

To a point. But it sounds like this woman, if real, chose to die.
