You're doing quite well on your own.

And BVS is right. You're a hypocrite to use "all life is sacred" given your history in this forum.

Exactly. What needs to happen now is one of the twits on the Supreme Court or in the Senate needs to have a daughter who needs to have one of these. Then we'll see laws that treat women as something other than baby-makers.

i think it should also be pointed out that women who have one of these nearly all do so for medical necessity -- no woman gets to be 8 months pregnant and says, "you know what? think i've changed my mind."

Indeed. In cases that I've read, this procedure is done because of a medical emergency or the finding of a severe genetic defect late in the pregnancy.

"When she was about 26 weeks pregnant, Britell says that she was told by her doctor that her baby had no brain. The condition of her fetus, anencephaly, meant that her baby would die moments after birth.

Regarding the arguement that carrying the fetus to term would give her more time to "prepare" for the grieving process: "Prepare?" says Britell. "That would consist of months of people walking up to me and saying things like, 'How nice, you're pregnant. When is the due date?' and me having to respond time and time again, 'Well, that would be one day before the funeral.'"

Exactly. Like I said before, I don't think any of these women viewed it as a "choice", like they wanted an abortion. It was a medical necessity either to preserve their health or the ability to have children in the future. I remember seeing a story about this on one of those shows like Dateline NBC or 60 minutes. The stories that these women told were heartbreaking and none of them were happy about it, but they had no other option. Then they showed clips of politicians talking like these women were horrible people, like the women intentionally chose this option just because they wanted to.

i have a younger brother and sister, and growing up, the two of them were best friends with a similar brother/sister the same ages as the two of them. their friends came from a family with 5 kids.

and that mother-of-5 is the only person i've ever heard of who had a late-term abortion for precisely the reason above.

There is never 100% in guilt.

Do you eat anything at all?

The law should allow people to be moral on principle - having choice allows that.

That is a term invented by the religious right in order to do exactly what it's done to you - have an emotional reaction. It means a late-term abortion, but if they can call it partial-birth, well that's just a lot more evocative - who cares if it's a mischaracterization.

Can you ever stick to the subject?

You've asked this several times before, do you think the answer will change...
