So I sit here at work and I am mortified because I am working on a Planned Parenthood account (and I really dont want to) and the number of abortions performed is staggering.

I personally am not ok with late term abortions.

I think that's exactly what they think. It sure makes the PC side sound more inhumane and shallow to describe any late-term abortion as a woman simply deciding she doesn't want to be pregnant anymore at 7 months.

Re: testing, also some women don't produce amounts of the "pregancy hormone" for detection via urine tests.

" If I knew a woman who aborted past 8 weeks, I would do everything in my power to make her feel like less of a human being. "

I would tell you to mind your own business because my body and choices aren't any of your business. Oh, and nothing you could say to me would make me feel like less of a human.

"If I knew a woman who aborted past 8 weeks, I would do everything in my power to make her feel like less of a human being."

And if I were that woman I would just assume you were an angry, self righteous person who can't mind her own business. I noticed on your profile it says you are going to school for nursing. I don't think you will get away with this attitude with patients. Is that how you will treat patients who's choices you disagree with?

I would really like to see the medical case on the 22 week old that's now 40---sure since it was such a medical miracle it must be documented. I belong to a preemie group, I'm sure they'd be fascinated to read about it (one of my sons was a preemie and had issues--not big issues but issues nonetheless).

A lot of them had babies around 26 weeks and their children had a myriad of health issues. Yes with medical advances some of those issues at 26 weeks have diminished but they're not anywhere near the 22 week mark.

Thank you for posting this. A lot of people live under the idea that babies can be born at 25 weeks and NOT have any problems whatsoever.

It drives me crazy when I hear that. They always have a "friend of a friend" or a "cousin" it happened to and everything was fine, therefore everyone else must be wrong.

It's like an urban legend.
