"It's called critical thinking and I'm good at it."
No, you actually suck at it.
I'm not the one who was trying to use billing codes to argue my point, Ayakaneo was. It backfired and proved me right and her wrong. Now whenever Ayakaneo tries to bring up the coides as some proof of the PC claims that D&C is charted as an abortion procedure when used after miscarriage, the proof she's wrong is in black and white.
The proof you people are wrong that it's charted in medical files as an abortion procedure is just common sense logic. That's where crtical thinking and sense comes into play, and yours isn't anywhere near the ballpark.
I know for a fact how it's charted. I also have very good reading comprehension skills. Something most of PC lack.
Gosh, I hope you don't mind that I find more value in the assessment of my critical thinking skills by an accredited nursing college and a state board of nursing than I do yours. Nothing personal, ma'am. As I wrote, you dont know for a fact how every medical provider charts. You couldn't possibly know, since physicians are notorious for being very creative in their individual styles. That’s putting it kindly. I must say you certainly have very strong opinions, and I believe that to be an admirable trait. Why is it so important to you that every person agree with you, though?

She made her autonomous decision according to her personal ethics. Isn't that what we believe to be her right? She died, being true to herself. Dying isn't the worst thing to happen to a person, imo.

Yet if this woman had chosen to end the pregnancy to save her life you'd be vilifying her.
Nobody stopped her from making her own choice, and none of us have vilified her. We've simply expressed sadness at the loss of her life.
That's the difference,d it's a big difference.
IF indeed this is a true story then leave it to fooL to ONCE AGAIN exploit a woman.

She didnt tell about this poor womas tragic loss. She had an agenda to show her bigotry and her hypocrisy while using her and her "babys" death.

She is a monster.

Wait, what about your hypothetical where you'd choose death for your daughter rather than a life-saving abortion? It is very similar to what Foo's posted. Yet you call her a monster. You probably called Michael Schiavo a monster, too. But the three of you all made decisions based on what was right for you and your family members. Do you still believe Michael Schiavo to be a monster?

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

JM, my point is that Lynne is wrong in saying that the pregnacy is terminated upon the abortion. The termination isn't complete until the removal is complete. The D&C is part of that process regardless of how the abortion took place.
BTW, you contradict yourself in your above post with this one.
Pregnancy...being pregnant means that you are gestating your developing offspring /child. An elective abortion is meant to END that developing childs life. A miscarriage/spontaneous abortion means that a developing child has died. The life of that child is over. The pregnancy is terminated at that point. REMOVAL of that life is the next step.

In an elective abortion, the Dr kills as it removes it.

In a miscarriage the body usually natural expels it.

If not, the Dr will clean out an remains of that baby. Many times even after baby is expelled, the Dr might go in and clean out the uterus. That is NOT an abortion. It is a D & C.

FooL is claiming D&C are "abortion procedures".
Abort means to END. If the baby died, then a D&C is NOT ending/aborting

During anelective abortion, then that D&C DOES abort /end the life/pregnancy

"He's trying to claim the process of the pregnancy ending has something to do with the D&C procedure."
What part of "pregnancy ends with the death and *removal* or *expulsion* of the fetus" do you not understand?
Ever hear of a botched abortion?

Ever hear of women going in for an abortion and then days or more later being in agony or still bleeding? She goes to the ER. Dr left a body part of the baby still in mom. They do emergency D&C.

Tell me, in your opinion, is she still pregnant? According to you since the baby is still inside then she is pregnant.

It is no different than suicide. She died feeling she was doing what was best.

As long as she wasn't coerced, it is really as it should be.

Thanks for proving it with THEIR posts. They will continue to give you grief to distract ;)

Could you please stop dragging me into something I'm not even following?

I think the term "monster" is reserved for people who actually commit heinous acts, not for people who write posts thats we don't agree with or make end-of-life decisions that go against our particular sensibilities. Or... have abortions :-O

They did say thast, and no Ladilulu won't attest to that. She refused to attest to it back in Jan., she sure won't do it now. Again, you're expecting integrity in discussion from a pathological liar?
I have no clue what you two are yammering about, you stupid cow.

I have no desire to discuss whatEVER it is, have you picked up on that yet, feeb?

Or does someone have to beat you to get you to understand them??

Lala, Lily even showed the link with YOUR words telling me that it is NOT an abortion. You thought that I was saying that it was when in fact it was peter and johnny.

This conversation continues and since finding out that "I" didnt say it, youve remained silent because you were afraid to confront fooL with her bs(or peter or johnny).

It is a terrible thing that we are talking about, but to place her belief in the possible "afterlife" above the very real life she had seemed to be counter-productive, wouldn't you say?
What I would say is it was HER CHOICE about HER OWN life. Who are any of you to judge her choice about HER OWN life?
