Proudly Pro-choice

I couldn't either, Morgana. But from posting here, I realize there are some women who would choose to refuse a life-saving abortion and face death as a consequence. And, being prochoice, just because I disagree with it, I'm not going to browbeat them into deciding otherwise.
What gets me, though, is SassyJM's blatant hypocrisy. But she has refused to admit it since the hypothetical was first discussed years ago (iirc, it came about during the discussion of the abused 9yr old Brazilian girl receiving an abortion against the Church's wishes).
It seems fairly obvious to me that most of the so-called 'pro-life' people here are anything BUT pro-life. They're pro-fetus, and pro-birth, and pro-their-own-choices, but they couldn't possibly care any less about the life of the born child. Oh no - that's the parents' problem, and they shouldn't have been having sex if they didn't want babies....

And the sad thing is, they don't even see the hypocrisy: they think they're exhibiting MORALITY of all things....personally, I think they should have coat hangers tattooed across their smug, complacent, and interfering faces.....

<quoted text>...an opinion which is STILL totally irrelevant, as is your opinion, Sassy's opinion, or the opinion of anyone other than the woman carrying said fetus.
There are many circumstances under which it 's possible to obtain a legal late-term abortion. Your scenario is not one of them. Nonetheless, if the crazy bitch wants to terminate her pregnancy at 8 and 1/2 months sans a medical necessity, she might attempt the procedure sans medical assistance.
Should she be prosecuted, or treated for mental illness? Neither? Both?
What's your opinion?(not that it matters...)
My opinion is the same as yours. I believe she was mental. Again, I don't know all the details, I'm not even sure if there were charges laid. But Katie made a valid point. For all I know she went in there, screamed that she didn't want the baby, made all kinds of excuses, and the Doctor believed her life to be in danger due to said excuses, I don't know... suicide? I have no idea how crazy she acted or how she went about it, but she found a Doctor to perform it. Maybe she did something to herself, and the baby was already dying like the link that Katie did show me. When the boyfriend/husband/whatever went to the news, she fought back, saying her mental health was in danger, almost proud of her decision claiming she didn't want to bring that scum bags (boy/girl?) into the world (those words probably not used), and she was proud of what she did, and later admitted it to be out of spite (that part I know). But when talking to a friend, she remembers a huge rigmarole about it. Charges laid after? Again, I don't know. The link that Katie showed me about a (I guess) similar story, she was charged, and did prison time.

My opinion is what Katie mentioned, I think she probably should be treated for mental illness cause that sh*t ain't normal, and beats me if the Doctor was charged?

"There are many circumstances under which it 's possible to obtain a legal late-term abortion. Your scenario is not one of them. "

I know, you won't find a Doctor here that will do them after either 20 or 24 weeks (forget our time limit). UNLESS the baby is dying or the mother. Maybe the Doctor was like her husband, and the baby dad her boyfriend. Beats me

All I know is that it happened almost a decade ago, I don't know all the circumstances, and I could be wrong about them. I remember reading about it, I remember thinking spiteful bitch, and then .... nothing, I stopped paying attention.

"Should she be prosecuted, or treated for mental illness? Neither? Both?
What's your opinion? "

If she broke the law she should be prosecuted. She should be treated for mental illness too. So,,, I guess both.

No, I mentioned this before, I believe their reason for not caring about the baby after it's born, is because they are born with the same rights as we are, and if they are hurt, charges are laid. so there is no point fighting for rights when birth gives them rights. It's before they care, because they have no rights before, and that's what they're fighting for.

If I could take back time, I would try my best to convince baby Brianna's mom to abort. Heck, I would like to knock her the f*ck out and perform it myself.

Please don't look up that case if you're not already aware of it. You can't unsee/unknow what you learn, and it's a life changer. It's extremely upsetting, and you just walk away with complete rage at these people. Hate in it's worse form. So again, if you're not aware of it, please stay unaware of it.

A quick way to combat that and spoonfeed them some logic is for you and me to go undercover, write for those online rags they follow, and inject some real common sense into their thinking. That'll get 'em! Pretty soon they'll be waking up from their foggy dreams of trying to steal women's civil rights and realize what dumbasses they've been the whole time. They might even realize how easily led and manipulated they've allowed themselves to be -- and all at the expense of women everywhere.

You remember last night I mentioned an oven, microwave, and boiling water? Yeah... all real cases from around here. Some women should never ever be parents. Ever. jmo

yeah, that would work. frick and frack. the selfish, heartless old bag who'd run over her own grandmother in her vespa in the interest of preserving her sacred right to privacy. and you, who wouldn't know logic if it bit you in the ass and who couldn't spell 'cat' if you were spotted the 'c' and the 'a'. nope, they'd never spot you two.

No, my point was that most abortions occur during the earlier stages.
who cares ? that was not the point of what was being discussed at all. the point was the definition of abortion includes the death of the entity being gestated and is not defined "only" as the termination of pregnancy. she found an accepted definition that included the death of the life being getstated and you accused her of embellishing because she called it a fetus when the definition called it an embryo/zygote. as if it made any difference. her point was that the definition was more than just 'termination of pregnancy'. the definition also included the death of the life being gestated, regardless of what it was called.

no brainless, thick is repeating something dozens of times even after it's been addressed dozens of times.
rights come with restrictions for a "reason" thick one. they are restricted because free exercise of such rights "without" restriction could adveresely impact the rights of others which is why the right of freedom of speech is restricted and you do not have the right to scream fire in a crowded theatre.
now once again, try answering the question without deflecting to something totally irrelevant. if you support the right to abortion based on the premise that it is the woman's body and hers alone and that the fetus has "zero" rights, then just what about that premise changes in the third trimester ? explain again why there should be any window at all within which a woman can make her own decision about her own body, affecting aan entity which has no rights at all ?

What needs explaining referring to "women owe". It is pretty simple. Prolifers believe women owe, regardless of themselves or their circumstances they owe birthing to church and state.
Walking in high heels is a conscious choice, you even pick the size, color and how high you would like the heel. That has GOT to be the DUMBEST comparison EVER, belittling and degrading to compare walking in heels to a pregnancy. JFC you are a male and clueless.

Why should you be able to abort if a pregnancy poses a health issue to the mother? What about the fetus? Does it now lose rights? Does it become less valuable? Explain.
be delighted to. because then it becomes a matter of self defense.
why should you be able to kill someone who poses you imminent, lethal harm ? does that person now lose rights ? does that person now become less valuable ?
smarten up and try to utilize your sense of reason. i trust it's not totally dormant.

You are right, I am calling you a hypocrite. You apply different values to life while claiming all life is precious. A contradiction.
I am referring to RvW and the first trimester, are you referring otherwise? Their is NO difference in a fetus conceived by consensual sex or rape. This is where your contradiction lies. But you knew that.
there is no difference between the life of someone walking down the street minding his own business and the life of someone walking toward you with a knife obviously intending to do you great bodily harm. yet you would devalue the life of that person threatening you by saying you support the right to kill that person in that situation.
a contradiction.

LOL See? Here's a perfect example of you trying to use my personal opinions against me when all along I've known my personal opinions on the abortion issue matter to no one (unless it's my pregnancy, it's not my business). You are silly in a desperate kind of way, JM. Not very becoming of a woman in her mid-to-late 40s.
Your "personal opinion" proves you a fraud. You agree with restricting a womans choice to kill her baby. That makes you anti-choice, not pro-choice.

Why didn't you abstain from sex while fertile to avoid pregnancy?

IF your husband was "concerned" about you, he'd have keep his selfish desires in check while you were fertile. But noooooooooo, why should he, right? He cared about *you* so much that he made YOU go through an abortion @@.

My husband loves me enough to respect me, putting his desires last. He would never have his wife go through a risky procedure that kills his child. We have children but when I couldn't get pregnant, he used his brain and avoided sex.

You poor confused woman.

Here's what I found when searching out Canadian woman aborts pregnancy at 8 1/2 months. The woman had the affair, not the husband. In this instance, the husband is standing by her and wants them to remain a family and raise their young children. Is this what you referred to, Rachel? Or something different altogether? It's similar to what you posted, but just barely.
