You live by the sword, you....

Well, you know the rest, I'm sure. ;)

I agree. I think, on the whole, the planet's a lot better off without him on it.

Or perhaps, Julia, if you live by "the syringe with spinal needle"(*) then you run the risk of dying by an outraged executioner's bullet.

(*) WARNING - DON'T READ THIS IF YOU ARE EASILY UPSET.

Syringe with Spinal Needle

"This is a large capacity syringe with a long needle attached. In some abortion procedures it is used to drain off amniotic fluid from the mother's uterus and replace it with either a saline or urea solution. However, its more common use is for injecting chemical agents (digoxin, potassium chloride, etc.) into the heart of the baby.

In both instances, these chemicals serve two purposes. First, their use greatly reduces the chance that the baby might be born alive. And second, these chemicals soften the child's corpse and make it easier to rip apart and/or remove.

The site is a typically American piece of hyperbole but I have no reason to doubt the clinical description of that particular instrument.

Indeed, Rob, at the very least a little oxygen has been saved!

I am a reluctant, lesser-of-two-evils, only with heaps of safeguards, pro-abortionist. What I cannot fathom is that there seem to be people, particularly in the US, who seem to be enthusiastic about abortion. Or infanticide, in some cases.

Despite my huffin' and puffin', 'DM', I am not an absolutist on this topic, either. We both know, I'm sure, the myriad circumstances that can surround an unwanted child. However, given the abilities of the 'Quacks' to observe and test the baby's condition, then the later into the term it has gone the more reluctant I would be to grant leave for an abortion. This wretch I report on above was a specialist in late-term abortions and even a glimpse of what that entails is too horrific for words.

'catastrophic, life-limiting, horrendous birth defects'

The only reason for this kind of procedure to ever be carried out.

Exactly, Julia, and given the number and scope of tests available these days at a very much earlier stage I doubt that such a condition would pass un-noticed until late in the pregnancy.

Hopefully George Bush, Rumsfeld and all those who supported the mass abortions in Iraq will do the honourable thing and kill themselves.

Now you all know why I try to avoid this subject. It is guaranteed to bring muddle-headed mouth-breathers out of the woodwork offering comments of such stupifying irrelevance that, just for a nano-second, one feels that not all abortion is wrong!

"...there seem to be people, particularly in the US, who seem to be enthusiastic about abortion."

I remember an editorial in a local Philly paper in which the writer, well-known in Philadelphia, gave her mother the present of admitting that she (the writer) once had an abortion, and she was no longer ashamed of it. She did this because it was mother's day. How's that for a mother's day gift. "Mom, I had an abortion. And I want you to know. Love you, mom"

I don't know, Dom, but I have a sneaking suspicion that they probably deserve each other! Welcome to D&N, by the way.

Adolf Duff, If they were handing out Nobel prizes for stupid ignorant
comments you'd be a winner!

You're more of an arse-breather than a mouth-breather.

See what I mean ...?

................NO!

"She did this because it was mother's day."

Good lord! But yeah, that sounds about right. Mother's Day - it's not about your mother, love, it's all about you...

And surely they are habding out Nobel prizes for 'stupid ignorant comments'? Didn't Fat Al Gore get one for globalwarmingohgodohgodwe'reallgonnadie!...?

Wait a minute here, are you getting your information from ANN COULTER?!? She is given to unreliable rhetoric, is she not? Much as you adore her, you shouldn't actually take her utterings for fact.

I think you are all ignoring the tragedy of learning that your baby does not have a skull or spinal chord, or it has died in utero.

If only you conservatives would care as passionately about the children who are ALREADY BORN!

"She is given to unreliable rhetoric, is she not?"

If she is, please refute her claims with evidence, as people do with the claims made by Michael Moore, Keith Olbermann, etc...

"I think you are all ignoring the tragedy of learning that your baby does not have a skull or spinal chord, or it has died in utero."

You think that doesn't meet the criteria for 'catastrophic, life-limiting, horrendous birth defects', as I mentioned above...?

Now see where my fickle heart has led me! I just cannot help falling for these strong, powerful ladies and now I have ended up in no man's land between 'Sis the Scythian' and 'Julia the Assassin'! Oh well, like "plucky little Belgium" in 1914 I must give up my fearful neutrality and take sides.

'Sis', neither Julia or I are absolutists on this develish tricky subject. It is a question of where you draw the line and I would draw it a lot earlier in the term. And if Ms. Coulter (be still my beating heart!) is wrong in her details concerning the late Dr.(?) Tiller then please provide details. In the meantime I will continue to consider his early demise a useful saving of precious oxygen.

Well, but Julia is the one who kept on demanding that I prove Obama's 'intelligence.' She doesn't accept anything as 'evidence.' Plus she's kind of a harpy and too dogmatic to take seriously. In the end, I'm hotter, so I win! Sorry, Julia!

I think that abortion should be an option for any woman. Perhaps there would be less child abuse?

Sorry, 'Sis', I'm too busy digging the deepest slit trench I ever dug as a soldier. Expect incoming soon!

"Well, but Julia is the one who kept on demanding that I prove Obama's 'intelligence."

And you didn't manage it, did you, though you tried?

Mind you, it was a bit like pushing water uphill, given the efforts of Obama himself to prove me right... ;)

"She doesn't accept anything as 'evidence.'"

'She doesn't accept just anything as 'evidence.'

FTFY :)

I'm sorry, I don't understand FTFY :). Maybe I don't spend enough time on the Internet. However, I was fascinated to see that one of Julia's favorite blogs has a warning about Adult Content and features semi-naked girls.

Is Julia a gent, in fact?

It stands for 'Fixed That For You', and comes after you've altered a line from someone else's comment or post to better reflect reality.

"However, I was fascinated to see that one of Julia's favorite blogs has a warning about Adult Content and features semi-naked girls. "

Only one..? I must be slipping! Actually, like 'Playboy', I only read that one for the articles.. ;)

"Is Julia a gent, in fact? "

*peeks down blouse* Blimey, I hope not!

Ooops, sorry, perhaps just a lesbitious right-wing racist, my mistake!

"I was fascinated to see that one of Julia's favorite blogs has a warning about Adult Content and features semi-naked girls."

Which one, which one? Surely not "Veterinary Nurse" or "The Magistrate's Blog"? It can't be me because I keep forgetting how do photo 'thingies' on the net so my prize collection purchased from a very nice Arab gentleman as I passed through the Suez Canal in 1962 must remain forever locked away (not least in case the little 'Memsahib' finds them!)

That'll be the Remittance Man. ;)

'lesbitious'...? Are we inventing our own words now...?

I've just had a sneaky look whilst the little 'Memsahib' is out and he's gone straight onto my 'Favourites' list.

Hahahaha! I won't tell her, but be careful!
