  • If It's Medically Necessary, It Isn't Abortion

    There's No Medical Reason to Throw Away a Child. Don't Want a Child. Don't Keep It.(Allow the child to be adopted out.)If a medically necessary therapeutic procedure accidentally results in miscarriage, the doctor now has two patients. That's not procured abortion, it's spontaneous.Abortion is a non-therapeutic action intended to cause fetal demise. Once the child has been delivered, there is no medical or social reason to deliberately cause fetal mortality.It is a foundation of Confucian philosophy, that the way to understand something is to call it what it is. Abortion is not the practice of medicine. It is civilly decreed...

    Moms who have suffered miscarriages are slamming Planned Parenthood for its tweet comparing miscarriage to abortion. The liberal media have yet to cover it – but that’s not stopping more women from chiming in. On Friday, Planned Parenthood Action Fund quoted feminist writer Danielle Campoamor on Twitter after she insisted that there’s “no difference" between a woman who has had a miscarriage and a woman who has had an abortion. The quote came from a piece she wrote for Romper, where Campoamor serves as editor. "There is a common misconception that the mom who miscarries is a very different person...

    According to Texas law he wasn’t old enough or heavy enough to need a death certificate, but he got a proper burial anyway. Allison’s son was 13 weeks and 4 days when she lost him.

After suffering a miscarriage about a year after Matthew’s first birthday, they...

MAP Diagnostics is the company behind the first-of-its-kind pregnancy test that would reveal intricate details of both a mother...

    Ted and Theresa Baklinski with their growing brood of grandchildren. COMBERMERE, December 25, 2013 ( - Amid all the joyful bustle of family preparations in anticipation of the holy day of Christ's birth, Christmas time always brings to my mind the deep regret that I feel over the one child my wife and I lost due to miscarriage, because it reminds me that at the time I was like the Bethlehem innkeeper who said there was no more room. I was having a lot of trouble accepting that my wife was pregnant with our ninth child. It's not that we...

    Two pregnant woman miscarried after a jealous friend poisoned their drinks, a court in Austria has heard.

'Mine should have been with them as well, but instead mine died while theirs went on.' She was suffering from depression as...

    Proof that my baby existed. And yes, I peed on these, get over it. So. It’s been a while.I stopped writing about abortion because I started to feel a little bit overexposed, maybe even repetitive. Hadn’t I said everything I needed to say about abortion? Was it making any difference, anyway? As far as I know, I’ve never converted even a single person from pro-abortion to pro-life. Maybe writing about abortion is not what I’m supposed to do.I was thinking that way for about a month. I didn’t feel like writing. I felt somewhat disillusioned by the movement, disappointed by...

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — More and more of your medical records are being made available online. But do you know what’s in those records? Do you understand what your doctors mean when they use certain terms? This FOX6 investigation could help you in the future. In 2009, Andrea Christian lost a child. ”I did at one point see the heartbeat and then you don`t see it,” she remembers. “It hits you all at once.” She recently changed doctors and requested her medical records. She couldn’t believe what she read. “I just felt like they had ignored that I had lost a...

    Pregnancy loss is a common and painful condition for gestational women, accounting for 25-40% of total pregnancy, having become a serious social-medical issue worldwide. Animal studies and clinical investigations have indicated that the cause of many mid-term miscarriage/abnormal pregnancy has been seeded very early during the onset of embryo implantation. Epidemiological study also showed that maternal stress at early pregnancy is strongly associated with various complications during ongoing gestation. However, whether and how the process of embryo implantation is affected by environmental factors such as stress induced sympathetic activation remained elusive. Considering the mammalian uterus is an organ with extensive...

    A mother is suing the obstetrician who she claims misdiagnosed her pregnancy as ectopic and injected her foetus with an abortant, resulting in birth defects. Thirty-five-year-old Rachel Schoger of Caldwell, Idaho, says she was four weeks five days pregnant with her daughter, Seraphine, when her doctor injected her foetus with chemotherapy drug methotrexate in 2006. Two weeks later, the baby was found inside the uterus. And against all odds, Seraphine made it through term. But the little girl will never lead a normal life, her mother says, after she was born without reproductive organs or a rectum as a result...

  • Hospital Staff Flushed Miscarried Baby Down Toilet - Need Advice Please

    Hello fellow Freepers. I am looking to you for some direction and advice on where to turn on behalf of my closest friend in the world. A very horrific incident happened this week to her daughter, who was expecting her first child. Unfortunately, she misscarried the baby at 13 weeks gestation. If the devastation of that was not enough, it happened in the hospital while she was on the toilet. The nurse instructed them to leave it there and she would go get a pathology box. Very shortly thereafter, another hospital staff member came into the room, donned gloves, and...

    The wound comes from well-meaning people. “Well, it wasn’t that far along.” “You can always have another child.” “Lots of people go through this.” Miscarriage is a tragedy that so many people misunderstand. They are not quite sure how to console a friend or relative who has suffered this loss. While there are no magic formulas, there is one fundamental truth that needs to stay front and center: a miscarriage is the loss of a child who is just as real and has just as much value as any other child of any age. A woman who has a miscarriage...
