I've been an occasional lurker here just because I love a good debate, but I rarely get involved because I can get caught up in it and never leave...;) There is a question that I have for all the pro choicers out there.

She's in her mid twenties and she got out of the hospital in Early November.

I don't think that abortion is ever the answer even in rape cases.

One of my pregnancies was an ectopic. There was no way it could be carried to term the only thing that was going to be gained from trying was for me to die as well. Now I am not a biology major but I know enough to realize that if I die the embryo was going to die as well. It is physically impossible for my corpse to gestate a pregnancy.


I know I sorta responded to this in my PP, but the more I think about this, the more curious I'm getting.

Oh, I didn't think that they were lying or exaggerating, but instead clearly misunderstanding.

Lots had already survived it regardless of age (including many in their 20's such as my daughter), pregnancy, etc..

Maybe Christine's doctors had meant in their particular unit, I don't know. If you are interested, these folks can offer more:

I hope that and the information offered already helps :)

Ending a pregnancy is the only option available for someone who has discovered she is pregnant and is not willing to have a baby.

To attempt to stop her from ending the pregnancy is to promote forced childbearing.

I don't agree with forced childbearing any more than rape or forced marriage.

Take away consent from any of those, and you have twisted what should be a happy, loving gift into abuse.

How could anyone want someone to experience childbearing against their will?

~There are always other options available instead of killing the baby.~

I've been sexually assaulted, and may well have killed myself had I become pregnant and forced to continue.

What other "options" do you think are available to the woman other than gestating the product of the rape (ie. if abortion is not permitted)?

~ I've never been raped or known anyone raped to know what kind of emotional trauma they go through and...~

That's clear (and I mean this in the nicest possible way).

~allowable~

I aborted because otherwise both myself and the fetus would have died. Given that you don't consider even that sort of intervention to be allowable, I'm going to move on (kind of appalled, to be frank). Be careful of what you'd wish on others.

At any rate, I gather that you object also to the use of hormonal birth control, given that it too ends life (I'm so surprised right now that I can't recall if we've discussed that).

Take care.

I wouldn't have said that. The biggest argument I have for choice is that you do not get to tell me what I can do with my internal organs, and I don't get to tell you. Ever.

Well, no. He died. Unless I misunderstood your post.

But they can certainly misunderstand. Since what you say happened physically cannot happen, I'm guessing that there's a broken link in this chain of communication.

There are those who don't. Why is a mother's likely injury or death from one doomed pregnancy somehow more valid than another's? Not all women die from ectopic pregnancies. Not all women die from placental abruptions. But why should terminating an ectopic pregnancy be considered a miscarriage when terminating a pregnancy with placental abruption be considered an abortion procedure that you would like to see banned?
