a lot of conceptions begin with an assist from alcohol

but, after that the health of the baby is paramount

I'd like to kick her in the teeth

other people who do absolutely everything right during pregnancy end up with complications to the child.

Makes me ill

Did I mention I wanted to kick her in the teeth ?

just let it be known that it is almost always the pro-life/anti-choice crowd who seek any and all opportunities to jump back into those chilly waters.

I didn't assign any particular blame for it.

Just saying is all.

I wonder if she'll need a DNA test or 12 to prove who her "baby daddy" is?

She shouldn't be allowed to have any more babies to be honest.

If your that reckless and stupid get your tubes tied.

This past weekend, there was this mother who had a baby where I work. The mom is a crack addict and an alcoholic. This is her 9th baby.

I'm seriously disgusted with people.

Just an opportunity to compare issues.

Much easier to say "wonderful simplification" and point fingers.

i agree.

this story is horrifying, this story is tragic, and this woman should be locked up for a long, long time.

but there seems to be absolutely no room here for compassion that this woman needs very serious help for a very serious disease.

Nice. After you took the first bite.

If you don't want to look at the broader issue of personal choice (I didn't intend yet another abortion debate), that's fine with me.

i haven't said a word about abortion -- only that there are people in here who will take any and all opportunities to bring it up, even when it has nothing to do with the issue at hand unless one is willing to make radical, logically absurd simplifications. my statements were about your bridging of the issues, not the issues themselves.

and you're using terms like "personal choice" or "She chooses to eliminate the child from her body, and we would cheer on that right" that are clearly inflammatory.

and, again, i'm not debating abortion.

i'm debating both your logic and your intentions.

She is an adult. She knows there are programs out there to help. But no one's going to force her to get help; she needs to decide to do it. She never did that. She is the offender in this case, not the victim.
