Why would anyone not use an endearing term to refer to the child they are carrying and expecting with eager anticipation?

Because some women have figured out that personifying a fetus can be a dangerous thing if they miscarry; also, others simply don't equate a fetus with a baby.

Exactly, personifying a fetus can be a dangerous thing if they abort it too.

I've read accounts by women who've aborted that used the term 'baby'. Using that term of endearment obviously didn't make any difference.

The point is, and has always been, that not all women use the term "baby". Not even all women who are pregnant and want to be. The original poster who made that claim was incorrect.

Girls who want to avoid getting pregnant in the first place need to THINK SEX THROUGH. They need to think past the moment before being IN the moment. Such as:
- Think about how you'll feel losing your virginity.
- Think about missing your period.
- Think about having to tell your parents that YOU ARE PREGNANT.
- Think about having to give away a baby so you can go on with your plans.
- Think about giving birth.
- Think about having an abortion
- Think about putting your plans on hold, maybe forever.
- Think about how much it will cost to raise a baby to adulthood ($100,000 or more)
- Think about what you'll be giving up (all your FREEDOM)
- Think about colic (anywhere from 1 to 6 months of it)
- Think about trading in your cute teenage outfits for dumpy maternity clothes
- Think about painful, drippy breasts
- Think about a child with a disability
- Think about changing lots of stinky diapers, day AND night.
- Think about losing lots of sleep
- Think about "What if he leaves me."
- Think about getting a HUGE belly and gaining a lot of weight
- Think about morning sickness, anywhere from 1 to possibly 6 months of it
- Think about suffering through painful hours (possibly days) of labor
- Think about getting almost no sleep at night after bringing the baby home
- Think about a baby possibly vomiting all over you (that happened to me more than once when DS was an infant)
- Think about listening to a crying, screaming baby instead of being out having fun with your friends
- Think about missing out on prom, graduation, college and dream career
- Think about the next 18 years of GIVING THINGS UP
The more girls THINK about the very real hardships of motherhood before having sex in the first place, they might be far LESS likely to take the risk of having sex and possibly ending up pregnant.
That's a lot of thinking to expect of small minds, but I applaud your effort, nonetheless.

(CNN)-- A federal court has ruled in favor of Texas, which wants to ban state funding for Planned Parenthood affiliates participating in a health program for low-income women because the family planning network performs abortions.
The ruling vacated a lower court's preliminary injunction and opened the way for Texas to sever money to clinics affiliated with Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, which has come under recent attack from anti-abortion politicians.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry praised the decision issued late Tuesday by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
"Today's ruling affirms that Texas' Women's Health Program has no obligation to fund organizations that promote abortion -- including Planned Parenthood," Perry said. "The 5th Circuit's decision is a win for Texas women, our rule of law and our state's priority to protect life."
It's about time somebody stood up and exposed these murderers for what they really are!
now only cheating rich white women will be able to get abortions?

Your choosing to deny the fact that the embryo/fetus is alive, doesn't make it true. Show me any medical science that says that the embryo/fetus isn't alive. Just in case you didn't know, in this country we are FREE to fight to change the laws that we don't agree with. Isn't this a great country?
