How many of you would agree with these common sense laws?

1. If parenting is out of the question, a woman can choose either abortion or adoption without the permission of the father

2. Hospitals do not have the right to deny a woman's request for sterilization surgery at the same time as her c-section. (Currently, many "pro-life" hospitals don't allow sterilizations even though they are super simple to do during a c-section.)

3. If a woman is carrying a baby who is incompatible with life/severe defects, it shouldn't even be called an abortion and the woman should be able to get whatever procedure needs to be done with her regular ob-gyn, not an abortion provider.

4.  If a child is born so early or with so many defects that they can only live a few weeks or months, hospice care and a pain-free death should be an option for the parents. The parents should not be forced to make their baby go through the excruciatingly painful process of NICU and surgeries, which have 0% chance of working.

Let's look at the facts: Late-term abortions close to term like you are talking about are extremely hard to obtain

 

Exactly.

The one example i quoted in previous thread was of a 36 week gestation French woman. She could not get a doctor willing to help in France or anywhere in Europe. So she was trying an American clinic. And that clinic refused her because they felt she did not come close to their criteria. Nowhere near it. So the answer was a polite No. 

You’d swear there were butchers on every corner enticing full term women into their clinics. Keeping cash flowing into the ‘Abortion industry’. There is no such thing.

I recommend watching After Tiller. It’s available on iTunes. It gives incredibly clear insight. Also Reversing Roe on Netflix.

Well, with one exception. If you're the mistress of a millionaire. There are 3 late-term clinics in America. There are healthy babies aborted in each for an exorbitant price. Usually women pressured by extremely rich men who already have a wife. Now that is morally abhorrent imo.

    But yes, in most of the country late term abortion (i.e. ending the baby's suffering) is not available even for babies so deformed as to be incompatible with life. Forcing babies to suffer is evil, imo.

I’m not sure this is true tbh. Sounds like anti choice rhetoric.

I miss toast. I’ve been doing the low-carb thing for a bit. When I lighten up on it, whole grain toast with butter and honey is first on my list.

Now why would said woman wait that long to abort? Spite? Seems like a no win situation.
That just makes no sense to me at all. At that point they'd more than likely be showing...wouldn't people wonder and possibly enquire? How would it be explained? 

Just not getting around to get? If it's a "coerced" TAB, how are these women being forced to do so? Drugged and kidnapped? Blackmail (2 can play that game)?

Again, I'm not getting this at all.

I'm just using your post to jump off of, because you're making so many good points, and this is important. Maybe it's just another pointless internet argument, but maybe it'll change someone's point of view.

It matters, because all over the world, women get subjugated, abused, and are the victims of horrific crimes...because we are women. No other reason. That's it! Choice is so important, because we are not mere vessels, we are not someone's object. We have a CHOICE. And a VOICE.

I agree, and I think this is an important conversation. And while internet arguments rarely change the opinions of the people making them, they can impact people reading.

That sounds so good that I may ditch the planned cheese and crackers for lunch and walk over to the grocery store to see what they have for potato salad.

Have you tried the Schmidt 647 bread? It started showing up in my local grocery store a few months ago (I'm in the U.S.). Each flavor is low carb (white, italian, wheat), only one weight watchers point per slice, and tastes just like regular bread!

Why? Who knows. But it does happen. I knew a woman who worked at one of the three centers in America and she said it was 50/50 on birth defects vs. healthy babies. Anyone who argues every abortion was a good idea that helped women just weakens pro-choice arguments. If you give people choices, sometimes they will make very bad ones. But if you give the vast bureaucracy of government the power to make women's choices, 100% of the time the govt will make poor choices that don't meet the individual situation.

Have you considered blogging it?  Sounds like something my boys would love and I know this time of year a lot of us are looking for fun appetizers.

I don't know how to do that(?) I can post the recipe here though!

 

Chicken Wing Dip

(everyone does it differently but this is how I make mine & it's REALLY good!!) 

shredded chicken breast

1 block of cream cheese

1 container of crumbled blue cheese

1 bag mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup ranch dressing

Franks red hot sauce to taste. 

Mix it all together & put in oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. (I cook the chicken first before I put it in) or you can do the same thing in the crockpot. 

I serve it with tortilla chips. It's seriously soooo good!!!

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
