that we’ve passed a ban on abortion after 20 weeks. Yay WV :D
Well that’s pretty disgusting of you.
Considering A) this is unconstitutional and B) those abortions are performed almost EXCLUSIVELY on women who will either die without them, or on women who’s fetuses cannot survive.
So, basically what I’m saying is, shame on you.
Ok so if a woman is going to “die” why not deliver the child and give it a chance at life?. If you think about it, no Doctor in their sane mind would perform on an abortion on a woman who is dying right then and say “I’m trying to save her life”, no they would save her and do what they could to save her fetus as well. Now if she’s a high risk case but isn’t in immediate danger, then why not deliver the fetus and let it live?
Also if the fetus won’t live long after birth, why not let it be born and die surrounded by love rather than to be killed?.
I just never understood the justice or “love” to killing a terminally ill baby in the womb rather than to let nature take it’s course and let it die naturally.
Why prevent suffering now when we can enjoy pain and slow, torturous death later? Yep, that’s “pro life”!
Spoiler alert: If a pregnant person is dying, they try to save the pregnant person. As that is their patient. The fetus takes a giant backseat and if it needs to go to save her, it goes.
Actual. Patient. Comes. First.
You also say, “Why not let it be born and die surrounded by love?” There is scientific evidence to show that a fetus in-utero probably cannot feel physical sensation; similar to a person under anesthesia. Would you want a baby to be born into a world where every living second of its life would be unbearable agony until it slowly dies? This is the life of a fetus born without certain organs such as a fully-formed heart, kidneys, or a liver. Some babies are born without kidneys and because their parents weren’t allowed a late-term abortion, that baby is forced to slowly die of blood poisoning and sepsis because its blood can’t be filtered and it cannot dispose of liquid waste. See; Mermaid Syndrome. Harlequin icthiosis, and other malformations prove fatal 99.99% of the time. Some babies are literally born with their brains outside of their skulls and in the rare occasion that they survive birth, they die within hours.
Not only that, but to force the pregnant person to go through possible days of pain and agony of childbirth only to give birth to that dying and/or dead baby is not only cruel; It is torture. Plain and simple. You are forcing a person to go through the indescribably pain of childbirth just to end up having to watch their baby die, possibly very painfully.
“Why not just deliver it?” You say. The United States has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the developed world. A pregnant person can die during childbirth. They can have a heart attack, internal hemmorrhaging, or even a stroke giving birth. You are basically celebrating a law that says a person who is told they will die in childbirth, has to endure childbirth. For many people, pregnancy and childbirth, if left to continue, is a death sentence.
So congratulations. This is what you wanted. This is what you are celebrating. Now, the 1.5% of pregnant people who have to get an abortion, and who end up having to abort late-term fetuses so that they won’t die or give birth to a baby that will live for only a small amount of pain-filled hours, can’t just have an abortion and save themselves and the baby which they clearly wanted if they waited until 20 weeks, all of that physical and emotional pain.
Congrats. You win. I hope you’re happy. You guys fought hard for this. You earned it.
