She’s freakin beautiful
This practically made me cry. How could this ever be okay?
[Image: An illustration is labeled as a “partial birth abortion”. It shows a person performing an intact dilation and extraction, which is described at the bottom of the image: “The surgeon pulls the fetus into the breech position. He forced scissors into the skull, removes them and inserts a suction catheter through which he suctions out the skull contents.”]
I’m going to tell you a story that my tenth grade biology teacher told me.
So, my teacher had a friend. She was happily married, a Christian, and pregnant. She and her husband were extremely excited about the pregnancy and they couldn’t wait to be parents. She was pretty far along - probably about 7 month in. She went to get a check-up, and her doctor checked out the fetus. Well, it turns out her fetus had hydrochephalus. In this particular case, the fetus’s head had not and would not form enough to even hold the brain inside the skull. If the woman continued the pregnancy, she would give birth to a dead baby, and that’s if it didn’t die in utero and possibly cause sepsis before she had the opportunity to give birth.
So, and this was before the “partial birth abortion ban” was enacted (not when the story was told, but when it took place), the woman opted to get an intact dilation and extraction procedure (since that’s the proper medical term, “partial birth abortion” is a made up term and has no medical relevance).
Do you know what that allowed her to do? What that allows a lot of uterus-bearers in the same predicament to do?
She was able to hold her dead, intact fetus and mourn for it.
Now, she would have to get a procedure that literally rips the fetus apart, since apparently anti-choicers looking for a means to chip away at Roe v Wade think that this is a better alternative to the described procedure above. As the law currently stands, it is now impossible for people like the woman I described to have their fetuses aborted intact so that they can hold them like they wanted to. It is impossible for women like the one I described to have a body to mourn over.
So good job. Because you’re too ignorant to actually know why uterus-bearers get late-term abortion, specifically intact D & X procedures, you’ve essentially made it much harder for those that are experiencing the difficult choice to end a wanted pregnancy to mourn and move on.
But hey, go ahead and continue to consider yourself compassionate. I guess ignorance really is bliss, especially when you can hold up illustrations of medical procedures you don’t understand and hide behind them as if they have any meaning in the face of the reality that you refuse to acknowledge.
^^^ This seems to be the only story I ever hear about abortions performed this late. For some reason, you don’t ever hear about all those slutty women who just willy-nilly get third trimester abortions because lolfetus! that the anti-choicers keep going on about. They really should get on that. Perhaps they should reanimate zombie Reagan, he found that welfare mom with like 8 different welfare accounts and all those kids from different dads, didn’t he?
True story: uterus owners are NOT having abortions for fun! Abortion providers didn’t invent this procedure to have a cool new way to destroy fetuses. It’s so the parents can hold and mourn their baby. Nobody has an abortion this late in the pregnancy unless there’s a BIG problem.
there is a serious and stupid epidemic of a belief that there are these promiscuous girls out there waiting until the VERY LAST MINUTE to get an abortion ~just for the lolz~
i agree. this is in cases of very serious and tragic circumstances, usually with mothers who fully intended on keeping their baby.
PRO-LIFE<3 I pray that all the unborn, aborted babies are by the good Lord’s side,. Living a pain free life with their heavenly Father.
as much of the hateful ignorant things people have been saying, addiction can happen to anyone. it’s happened to a lot of people i love. does that make them ‘bad’ people? no. blame the drug, not the addict.
she was a beautiful singer, and her personal life was none of our business.
