My daughter was 2 lbs, 14 oz.
I thought she was tiny.
She wore Cabbage Patch clothes.
You are correct about seeing a preemy.
Every "pro-choicer" should be forced to hold one.
I felt like I had a case of vertigo when I walked into the NICU three and a half
years ago. My son told me later that he will never forget the look on my face.
What trimester was that baby when it was born?
"Every "pro-choicer" should be forced to hold one."
Then there is that beautiful photo of the baby removed from an ectopic pregnancy, still in the sac. The doctor says it is only after they are dead that they look like "little blobs of tissue". Even in the 1st trimester, this little ectopic baby looked like what it was: a baby.
[Don't have a link, but I'm sure the photo is well-known.]
31 years ago, our twins weighed 2.7 and 3.7. Real giants compared to this little one.
I am torn on that one. The peaceful part of me agrees with you, but the bitter part of me thinks that pro-choicers should have to stay as far away from children as possible.
Premature grandson changed, immediately and forever, all my stupid Pro Choice ideas! I tell anyone who will listen to go see some preemies (if they can figure out how to get in) and then talk to me. It ought to be part of every young persons education to be taken to a preemie nursery.
