Partial Birth Abortion?

You don't 'get' it because it isn't an actual medical term, just a fear tactic. NO partial births happen in this country. It is against the law and has been for years. If someone is making a claim about this procedure, they are trying to elicit fear--fear that our nation would actually condone partially aborting a viablie fetus. That is false. "The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the term "partial-birth abortion" in the act pertains to a procedure that is medically called intact dilation and extraction. Under this law, "Any physician who, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, knowingly performs a partial-birth abortion and thereby kills a human fetus shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both." The law was enacted in 2003, and in 2007 its constitutionality was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, in the case of Gonzales v. Carhart." Planned Parenthood does NOT perform 'partial birth abortions'. That is a complete fabrication. Further, NO ONE has introduced ANY legislation to request that this law be overturned.

I don't get it either. You're really killing a life with a partial abortion because your baby has all the basic needs to function on his or her own with maybe some vitamins or meds to speed up the growth of his or her lungs. It's just cruel.

What is the question? If you're asking for opinions, they are an abomination and a sin in every definition of the word. I agree with you, might as well have the baby and give it up for adoption.

It's not like babies are being aborted at 9 months. Do some research. Look up how far along you can abort a fetus in all states. Don't judge. Thanks.

I agree with you, but what is your question? Why they bother? Because they do not care about this little baby at all, sadly.

Sure if that male is a result of a sex change operation that left the plumbing intact (changing only the outer appearance). Of course such a person would be a male in name only.

I have not heard of a link. But either way, it does not matter. Catholics believe that from the moment of conception until natural death, each human being is endowed by God with dignity and rights. Therefore abortion is viewed as the murder of an innocent and defenseless human being. You shall...

Pain and bleeding after medical abortion?
Hello, Medical abortions sometimes need a follow up surgical abortion (but very rarely). You need to go to a clinic or a doctor and ask these questions. A positive pregnancy test is not much to worry about. But the bleeding and pain means you should go to a doctor. Best of luck.

Pain and procedure for a medical abortion?(abortion pill)?
The abortion pill, as far as I know, will basically induce a miscarriage. It would cause cramping and a lot of bleeding as everything comes out. Sometimes the bleeding does not stop when it should, and so it's important, but not always mentioned by the care provider, to have follow-up medical...
