Question and Answer

anonymous:

What do you think about the medical term “spontaneous abortion” to describe miscarriages?

cultureshift:

I don’t have any issue with referring to a miscarriage as a spontaneous abortion. This unfortunate event is out of the control of the mother and is a natural process leading to the tragic but UNINTENTIONAL loss of her child. I have lost two children to miscarriage/spontaneous abortion.

Induced abortion is what I have a problem with. Induced abortion is the INTENTIONAL act of killing a healthy prenatal child. A child that, if left alone, would grow to adulthood and continue to live a life of his or her own.
