Funny how you come down on the church folks, yet you and yours have no prob calling a woman a slot or where,if she chooses to carry out her sexual rights in a way YOU AND YOURS deem inappropriate?
Oh geez, THAT nonsense again, REALLY? Can't you come up with anything else? Obviously not.

"Come down on church folks?" PLEASE. All I did was point out to "ThePrince" (yeah, right) that religions and churches aren't in total control of women and our sexual/reproductive choices any longer. But I suppose for ANY religious fanatic that fact's gotta burn.

Pregnancy is a state of being. It means that you've conceived your child.
So what, that's YOUR interpretation of pregnancy, and many women don't agree. For many women, myself included, pregnancy is an UNWANTED MEDICAL CONDITION, which thankfully doesn't have to be forced on us. If a woman doesn't WANT to get or stay pregnant, she doesn't have to continue the pregnancy.

Because pregnancy is a medical condition that can -- and DOES -- cause serious health risks and complications for women, both during the pregnancy and at delivery, the ONLY person who makes the decision whether or not to continue it is the WOMAN who is pregnant. Whatever decision she makes, whether to continue the pregnancy or not to, is HER decision alone. That makes it none of YOUR business or anyone else's for that matter.

Motherhood is OPTIONAL, not required, which means a woman can reject it for any reason. Don't like it? Too bad. You don't get to make sexual or reproductive decisions for anyone but yourself. Deal with it.

I've had five kids and one full term stillborn. We named that child and gave it a full service. Your mother was/is either a cold hearted person or you made that story up to promote your cause. Either way you have no right saying that what I and others have lost is anything less than a child we loved. You suck.
Everybody makes it about themselves. Big difference between a full term stillborn and a miscarriage. Amazing that a woman gets pregnant 6 times and still doesn't understand terminology.

If I go into the medical field then I am forced(against my will) to get shots.
I am pro-alternative medicine...preventive care if you will. Insurances wont pay.
Where are my rights?
You don't care. You only want me to have rights to kill(abort). You're not pro-rights...your proabortion.

I know exactly what you idiots have been saying.
You pro-choicers have been saying that delivery of a pre-viable fetus, in cases of treating preeclampsia and eclampsia, is an abortion. You've been trying to make that claim by trying to use abortion meaning "ending of a pregnancy", and it being pre-viability as the basis for the claim.
WRong again Lynne. Stop putting words in others mouths that they've never said.

What IS being said is that abortion CAN BE a treatment for eclapsia as I've repeatedly proven with medical websites.

Here's more.

Abstract
Therapeutic abortion is proposed when a pregnancy threatens a woman's life and the fetus is not viable ex utero. As the intention is not to kill the fetus, this action should be named "therapeutic interruption of pregnancy". However, in some cases the fetus directly hampers the mother's health. Thus, the removal of the cause of the disease coincides with killing the fetus. Therapeutic abortion has been proposed for several situations. A) When pregnancy and not the fetus, impairs maternal life (e.g. ovular infection, ectopic pregnancy, decompensation of a preexisting disease or diseases of pregnancy as pre-eclampsia/eclampsia, HELLP and Ballantyne syndromes, choriocarcinoma). B) A risk for maternal survival caused by the embryo or fetal genetic constitution: autoimmune diseases of the mother generated by fetal antigens, some types of eclampsia with or without HELLP syndrome due to an immune or exaggerated inflammatory response of the mother, Ballantyne syndrome associated to eclampsia due to fetal-maternal genetic incompatibility, the classic fetus-maternal genetic incompatibility, embryo or fetus diseases caused by their genomic constitution, mainly hydatidiform mole and the triploid, or fetal cancer.

Therapeutic abortion: in severe cases not responding to treatment.

I can keep providing examples, but you'll continue to ignore them in your pathetic NEED to believe you're right.

The facts simply dont match up with your agenda. LOL

You're talking about a sentence I quoted from a medical site.
"The only cure is termination of the pregnancy at a time as favorable as possible for fetal survival."
"Termination" in the sentence I quoted about preeclampsia/eclampsia from a medical site is not in the context of abortion, dimwit. Anyone who can read for comprehension knows that, because we understand what the words, "at a time as [favorable as possible][for fetal survival]" means. That's the context the word "termination" is being used for those conditions in that sentence, and that means BIRTH not abortion.
Only a dumbass wouldn't get that, like the one who responded to me trying to claim the word "termination" in that sentence can also mean abortion.
Actually Lynne, "favorible as possible for fetal survival" certainly CAN mean abortion, since if its NOT possible for the fetus to survive, its SITLL going to be terminated. ie: abortion.

Termination of a pregnancy means what it says, termination via one of ONLY two means: birth or abortion. Period. REGARDLESS of the fate of the fetus.

You didn't write the article, you dont know what the author had in mind. MY interpretation is just as valid as yours, only MORE so, since I'm not reading it with the permanant set of blinders on that you have.

No there's not. A theraputic abortion and an elective one is the same thing. The ONLY difference is the reasoning behind it, and that makes ZERO difference to the end result.

An ABORTION.

Twist that all you like Lynniekins - but its a FACT.
STO claimed abortion was needed for [preeclampsia]. That's a lie.
What part of what STO said that he was repeating what he was told did you not grasp?? He didn't LIE you jackwit, and YOU dont have a damn clue what went on in that room with that woman.

What I proved, is that it certainly COULD happen, and definetly has. My BIL's sister is dead proof of it.

Wrong. The subject of abortion is important to me. You dimwits aren't.
You're lying Lynne, as usual.

If WE weren't important to you, you'd be on a forum where people give a shit what you think, where you MIGHT have a chance of having some modicum of respect, where you're NOT known as a bitter, pathetic, uneducated harridan.

If you cared about ABORTION, you'd be somewhere that people might actually listen to you, rather than write you off as a patehtic old bitch as soon as your name is seen.
Foo: "If we weren't, you wouldn't be posting so OBVIOUSLY obsessively to try to discredit us."
Wrong again. I post to prove facts.
Yet you do nothing of the sort. You post HALF truths and ignore whate you dont want to see, this is a FACT.
You're someone who posts obsessively trying to discredit pro-lifers. You people discredit only yourselves.
ROFLMAO Yet the only ones with no credibility here are you, the Skank and Knutbar among a few other irregulars.

You CLEARLY can't help yourself from coming somewhere that you're viewed as a joke, in your increasingly desperate efforts to gain ..... something. Whatever it is you're seeking, you're failing. Unless you WISH and LIKE to be viewed as a putz, if so, you're a BRILLIANT success LOL!

Do you really think that going before your God/creator on judgment day(the day you die) is going to be good when you attempt to bullsh@t your way out of explaining why you supporting killing what/whom God willed to exist and created in his/her mothers womb? Do you think that God is okay with you trying to play him or be him(like Lucifer did when he was cast out of heaven)?
This forum is discussing abortion. God says that you are either WITH him or AGAINST him.
Do you think that a person locked up in prison shouldn't be if they committed a crime against humanity? Is it ungodliness to point out his crime? Or do you ONLY use that card when discussing those who defend the preborn? You're fooling nobody hut yourself.

Pro-choicers think they can equate the term "abortion" as meaning the same thing when used as a term to define abortions just because a woman doesn't want to be pregnant, to having to end a pregnancy because mother WILL die if pregnancy isn't ended.
There's a difference between "therapeutic abortion" like when an tubal pregnancy has to be removed, and an elective abortion because she doesn't want a baby.
There's a difference between an elective abortion because she doesn't want a baby, and a D&C to remove the remains of a fetus that died in utero.
Just like there's a difference between an elective abortion and a miscarriage/spontaneous abortion.
Pro-choice boneheads will reach for any straw to try to make it seem like medical emergencies are equivalent to "I don't want a baby so I'm going to have it killed".
The treatment for preeclampsia is not abortion, as STO claimed, and as my sites and the medical sites Foo linked stated.
Petey claimed awhile back that [late term] abortions were NEEDED for preeclampsia/eclampsia in [late] pregnancy because women WILL die without it, when facts is DELIVERY is what's done in [late term pregnancy].
That was a general statement Petey made and it was a lie. STO claimed abortion was needed for [preeclampsia]. That's a lie.
Nothing Foo provided proved their claims true.
All of these "differences" you write about above make no difference to anyone but you and those who are of like-mind. In short, those who've allowed themselves to be manipulated by the PLM's propaganda.

When you come here, you don't debate. You attack. I certainly don't want to participate in that type of negative communication. Nothing can ever come of it. It's a waste of time.

You claim to care about other women's embryo/fetuses to the point of wanting/working to remove all American women's civil rights by criminalizing elective abortion. How is this a productive solution to unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies? Hindsight already shows us when abortion is illegal, it is still performed, but it is unsafe and women die. Do you not care about the pregnant women who would die? Or are you like the others who've claimed in the past, if she dies it's her own fault?

You and those who follow the PLM don't seem to have a real sense of what it is you're trying to do.

But you're sure quick to attack others who're trying to come up with real solutions -- like comprehensive education and affordable birth control. And then there are those of the PLM who would deny both education and affordable birth control by telling people "Just don't have sex!" As if that was a real solution to the real problems. Hindsight shows us that Abstinence Only teachings raised the rate of teen pregnancies. How is that a real solution to a real problem?

I don't believe you're here to really explore these issues and try to come up with common-ground real-world solutions. I think you're here for the same reasons SassyJM comes here. To post about how special she is and how wonderful she is and how awful abortion is. Blah!

No, in MANY cases as is being testified to (as you'd know if you actually knew anything about this case), they did NOT pay him to abort their babies.

In MOST of those cases, the woman were not drugged against their will you jackass. In MOST of those cases, death was from a medical complication - something that can happen during ANY operation.
"SYMPATHY"???? WTF do YOU know about "sympahty"???

Seriously - LISTEN to yourself.
You dont care about these women Skanky, NONE of them. Worse: you're too dirt STUPID to understand that you're transparent as glass in your pathetic attempts to use them as weapons.
And you dont have the grace OR the class to be ashamed of yourself.
""'in most of the cases death was from a medical complication-something that can happen during ANY operation""" "

So then what did he do wrong then?

You said that these women were "murdered" by this "murderer". Your contradicting yourself.

What "children" were "murdered"? Suddenly this was a "child"? What happened to a "medical choice"? Mom paid Gosnell to "murder" ...oops..."abort" her "child".....oops.... "fetus"/medical condition".

Youre a walking contradiction.
