quit lying, you poop. women don’t get abortions on healthy fetuses in 6-9 months. they have abortions at that point because a severe birth defect that would cause immense pain upon exiting the womb like cyclopia or sirenomelia or no lungs or something. it is to spare the newly born infant minutes or hours or days of pain while it dies in agony. hell, even if it’s the person’s life at stake, if the fetus is to viability they will deliver it and then save her. proliar douchebag.
In 1987, the Alan Guttmacher Institute collected questionnaires from 1,900 women in the United States who came to clinics to have abortions. Of the 1,900 questioned, 420 had been pregnant for 16 or more weeks. These 420 women were asked to choose among a list of reasons they had not obtained the abortions earlier in their pregnancies. The results were as follows:
71% Woman didn’t recognize she was pregnant or misjudged gestation
48% Woman found it hard to make arrangements for abortion
33% Woman was afraid to tell her partner or parents
24% Woman took time to decide to have an abortion
8% Woman waited for her relationship to change
8% Someone pressured woman not to have abortion
6% Something changed after woman became pregnant
6% Woman didn’t know timing is important
5% Woman didn’t know she could get an abortion
2% A fetal problem was diagnosed late in pregnancy
A new study in 2013 shows that most women seeking late term abortion “fit at least one of five profiles: They were raising children alone, were depressed or using illicit substances, were in conflict with a male partner or experiencing domestic violence, had trouble deciding and then had access problems, or were young and nulliparous.”
From the horses’ mouth…
“Then there’s the group of women who didn’t know they were pregnant,” Robinson continues. “They were told they were not pregnant for one reason or another and they are just as desperate. ‘I already have three children, my husband just lost his job and I can barely put food on the table. If I add a new baby to this family, we’ll all go under.’” — Susan Robinson, late-term abortionist
“We have some experience with late terminations; about 10,000 patients between 24 and 36 weeks and something like 800 fetal anomalies between 26 and 36 weeks in the past 5 years.” — George Tiller, late-term abortionist (that means 9,200 healthy babies were killed between their sixth and ninth months of gestation)
“I witnessed evidence of the brutal, cold blooded murder of over 600 viable, healthy babies at seven, eight and nine months gestation. A very, very few of these babies, less than 2%, were handicapped …I thought I was pro-choice and I was glad to be working in an abortion clinic. I thought I was helping provide a noble service to women in crisis …I was instructed to falsify the age of the babies in medical records. I was required to lie to the mothers over the phone, as they scheduled their appointments, and to tell them that they were not ‘too far along’ Then I had to note, in the records that Dr. Tiller’s needle had successfully pierced the walls of the baby’s heart, injecting the poison that brought death.” — Luhra Tivis, employee of late-term abortionist George Tiller
“The spin out of Washington was that [late-term abortion] was only done for medical necessity, even though we knew it wasn’t so. I kept waiting for [the National Abortion Federation] to clarify it and they never did. I got caught up: What do we do about this secret? Who do we tell and what happens when we tell? But frankly, no one was asking me, so I didn’t have to worry.” — Renee Chelian, president of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers
The majority of late-term abortions are performed on healthy mothers carrying healthy children. And I am only looking at the United States. Late-term abortions in Asia, especially China, are epidemic.See this post where I confronted a woman who killed her perfectly healthy child in a late-term abortion. She’s also AGAINST adoption.
At least know what you are talking about if you are going to participate in this debate. We are literally fighting over the rights of innocent human beings to live or the rights of their mothers to kill them. This debate is important and it should be informed and it should be taken seriously. Please invest the time and energy required to understand what you are really advocating for.
