It really is heartbraking ... it reduces me to tears.

Mr. S. You and I both know that people just don't want to be faced with the truth. That's why they get all freaked out when people show pictures of aborted fetuses on signs. I have mixed feelings about that but that's another topic.

We had a gal talk in our church years ago - the woman who was a nurse and saw the fetus "screaming" during. That story changed my life as much as anything. I was horrified. It is a wretched, wretched business and a big moneymaker for many.

By contrast, D&E abortions, performed as late as twenty-four weeks, involve the dismemberment of the unborn child by a pair of sharp metal forceps. Instillation methods of abortion replace up to one cup of amniotic fluid with concentrated salt solution, which the unborn child inhales as the salt burns his or her skin.

God have mercy upon us.

Note how the left is all worried, really concerned about the pain felt by a criminal when he is executed.
Note how the left tried to make us think that the poor woman Terri Schiavo who they let starve and dehydrate to death was in a wonderful, peaceful, euphoric state.
Note how the left is trying to suppress any information about how a baby can feel pain.

Disgusting! Any person who would perform this is nothing short of evil.

Back in December, MadIvan posted a thread in which each of you accused pro-lifers of hypocrisy because we are so much more concerned with the death of children in the womb than we are about the deaths of animals in slaughterhouses. I asked each of you to show me a slaughterhouse that treats its victims the same way abortionists treat babies, and strangely, none of you had an answer of any kind, not even a protest that my question wasn't fair or that the comparison was irrelevant. Just silence. What was especially interesting was the silence in response to my question about whether a human is more valuable than a chicken or pig. Hmmmm...

I respectfully request that each of you read this commentary by Mark Earley (especially paragraph 5) and explain to me again why I'm a hypocrite for caring about this issue.

We learned a lot about the sensitivity of the unborn when our son had an early amnio at ~13 weeks gestation. We were watching on the monitor, and as the needle was inserted, he became aware of a disruption to his little world. He reached up and held the needle in his hand. The doctor had to remain absolutely still until he released the needle, so that his little hand would be unharmed. After a while, our son released the needle, and the doctor finished the procedure.

We were truly amazed at the show he put on for us. He was aware of the intrusion, located it precisely, and examined it with his hand. I don't know how to reconcile this with a newborn's inability to find its feet with its hands, but his actions were very purposeful and precise. Hardly just a "lump of tissue".

This little fellow is now nearly 14, and making plans for high school next year. I can't imagine life without him.

As upsetting as this is, it really should be required reading for any woman contemplating abortion and ALL senators and congressmen.

God have mercy upon us.

We're going to need it. I know what Jefferson meant when he said "I tremble for my nation when I reflect that God is just."

okay.....? If you want me to defend 20+ week abortions, I can't really help you on that.

Makes me want to throw up.

I have a sonogram picture of my new grandaughter on my fridge. The picuture is her @ 25 weeks. She has her hand up like she is going to / or has just finished sucking her thumb. She has arms, legs, a head, mouth, etc. She is a baby.

Mind you, my son is not married. He is helping his girlfriend raise her twin boys from her prior relationship.

I'm a conservative, Christian mom who's first words, when I found out about the baby were, "When are you getting married?" I wasn't very excited about becoming a grandmother "out of wedlock". However, when I saw the sonogram my heart melted. She is BEAUTIFUL and I'm head over heels in love with her already.

Severe preemies are acutely sensitive to tactile stimulation, as in very painful to even be touched in motion if removed from the water world of their comfort at 24 weeks from conception. Ask any nurse who works a Neonatal intensive care unit ... but there are freepers posting every day who will deny these little ones are even human beings prior to being born. Disgusting doltish servants to evil ...
