I have too many things to say about it to form a coherent thought, but I thought I'd present it for debate here.

If the story has been reported correctly, then heck yeah I'd pull his license.

Whoa, yeah, that's disturbing all right.


Not to make light of the issue, but that doctor appears to go to Blagojevich's barber ;)

If the baby was born alive, then killed, then that was murder and the doctor/medical staff should be punished as such.

This raises three issues with me.

1) He wasn't there when this took place. By the time he got there the child would, most likely, already be dead. Really too late to do anything about it. An hour is far too long a time frame to try and resuscitate.

2) Are they even legally obliged to attempt to keep a micro preemie alive? Do they have the facilities there? I was under the impression that under a certain birth weight it was the practitioner's call as to whether to try and keep the baby alive. I don't agree with sealing it in a bag and the way they disposed of it, BUT I also don't think it needed to be allowed to linger for hours slowly suffocating while they stood back and didn't intervene.

3) <> Ummmmm I struggle with this one. She chose to abort, she ingested medication to end the fetal life and then when it wasn't neatly presented to her as a fait accompli of a dead fetus she's suddenly suing. It's also been over 2 years. I wonder what her motives are in leaving it so long?

I really don't like the way the woman is trying to pass all responsibility on to every one else. She will most likely have been to health ed classes at school and seen preemies on the news or whatever. It just doesn't feel right. It feels like if I blame every one else I'm not responsible for making the decision to abort.

I *do* think the clinic handled it very badly and they shouldn't be allowed to stay open but she needs to come to terms with her decisions and it doesn't feel like she has done from the article.

This case appears to be a perfect example of why people need to research their doctors and medical procedures.

I don't like how the clinic treated her- and especially how they disposed of the remains.
But I really DO take umbrage at her admonishing others to not abort. With her obvious and painful ignorance, I'd hardly consider her a worthy source of advice for me or any other woman.
You have regrets? Sorry- but your regrets don't form the foundation for laws that remove other women's rights.

I totally agree- no one's morals or regrets belong in laws that govern my body.

First of all, how anyone can just abort this....



...is beyond me.
