    Texas Anti-Abortion Law & Pandemic Masking
    Guest editorial --

    A Common Sense Take on the Texas Anti-Abortion Law-


    Mandating masks to end a pandemic and regulating the ownership of deadly weapons are attacks on personal freedoms, yet forcing women to carry pregnancies, regardless of risks, abnormalities, and other factors, such as rape and incest, is not?

    I cannot even begin to comprehend how those thoughts can coexist in the same mind.

    I do not support completely unrestricted access to abortion, but the small government crowd definitely should not be the ones telling others what to do with the innermost parts of their bodies.

    It is wrong to force a lifesaving mask on your fellow citizens, yet, somehow, it is lawmakers’ job to stick their hands into women’s wombs?

    On what level does that even begin to make sense?

    So you do not support "completely unrestricted access to abortion", but you wouldn't want to tell others what to do with the "innermost parts of their bodies"? But wouldn't that be the result of placing restrictions on abortion? You would be telling some women they could not have an abortion and would thus be telling them what to do with the, "innermost parts of their bodies".

    You can't have it both ways. Either you completely support a woman's "right to choose" and exercise sovereignty over her body, or you support placing limits on that right and sovereignty.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Let me put it this way - I agree with the author of the piece and totally support a woman's right to choose. AT THE SAME TIME, being against completely unrestricted access to abortion does not mean a woman's RIGHT TO CHOOSE should be legally infringed. One can have reservations about a law and still abide by it.

    Do you get it? Now? (Probably not.)

    Evaded the question...again. I'll repost it. "So it's better to just kill the unborn child?"

    As to your second point, you seem to be against "completely unrestricted access to abortion", and yet you would not legally restrict a woman's right to choose? So let's see. You are against "completely unrestricted access to abortion", but yet you would not restrict access to abortion. Uhm...that doesn't make sense.

    If you were the doctor and were going to kill this 19 week fetus, what procedure would you use? I ask because this is what liberals exercise their "choice" to ignore. In abortion, the baby has to die. Closing your eyes to that truth does not absolve you of responsibility.

    The unborn fetus has yet to draw its first breath. It isn't viable, able to live and survive, until it has been born and breathed. The Lord God formed man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living creature (Genesis 2:7).

    If someone is pronounced dead when the heart stops beating then why shouldn't someone be pronounced alive when there is a heart beat ?

    The Texas law is bad law for reasons I outlined here,
    The new Texas abortion law is unconstitutional (askmehelpdesk.com)

    About a dozen states have heart beat laws This is the 1st time courts have permitted enforcement at least until someone comes forward with proper standing . Then the law will be over turned .

    Texas this year added a $20 million increase in funding for pregnancy centers, adoption agencies and maternity homes that provide free services .In total, lawmakers voted to invest $100 million into the Texas Alternatives to Abortion program .So the state puts up funding to offer a choice .

    As for the 'my body my choice' rhetoric ;attempts to challenge the terminology of the Texas Heartbeat Act lay bare the truth of whose body is really being violated in an abortion. Everyone knows this .Everyone knows that the practice of murder for the right of convenience is grotesque. That is why the Orwellian use of terms like pro-choice; reproductive rights ,and reproductive freedom are used instead . It hides an ugly truth .

    And, too often, what happens to that breathing newborn with a heartbeat? One was recently found alive, wrapped in rosary beads and with vomit in its mouth, in a discarded dresser drawer in a Chicago alley, hours before the piece of furniture and other trash would’ve been picked up by garbage trucks and taken to a landfill. And that's only one story.

Since abortion for the most part is readily available and probably free in Chicago then how is it that someone decided to toss that baby in the trash when a legal murder option was available ?

    Shame? Fear? Single mother with no resources/support for raising a child? Since the abandoned baby was wrapped with rosary beads, a certain Christian denomination comes to mind as to why the baby made it through delivery. Illinois has Safe Haven laws, which would have allowed a parent to drop the newborn child at a location like a police station or hospital so long as he or she is uninjured and not yet 30 days old.

    Since you two would not answer the question, I have answered it for you. Read this and see if you are comfortable with this being done to the baby in the picture above, speaking of the one with fingernails, lips, and a beautifully formed face.


    • 1. Grasp the cervix with an instrument to hold the uterus in place.
    • 2. Dilate the cervical canal with probes of increasing size. An abortion in the second 12 weeks will need the cervix to be dilated more than required for a vacuum aspiration.
    • 3. Pass a hollow tube (cannula) into the uterus. The cannula is attached by tubing to a bottle and a pump that provides a gentle vacuum to remove tissue in the uterus. Some cramping is felt during the rest of the procedure.
    • 4. Pass a grasping instrument (forceps) into the uterus to grasp larger pieces of tissue. This is more likely in pregnancies of 16 weeks or more and is done before the uterine lining is scraped with a curette.
    • 5. Use a curved instrument (curette) to gently scrape the lining of the uterus and remove tissue in the uterus.
    • 6. Use suction. This may be done as a final step to make sure the uterine contents are completely removed.


    Bear in mind that the forceps being used to "grasp larger pieces of tissue" is referring to the grasping and removing of legs, arms, and the torso. The head is generally removed last. They then "reassemble" the body on a tray and, as I understand it, photograph it as proof that they removed everything just in case the mother gets sick and wants to sue.

    OK with that? Are you really OK with that?

    Oh stop with the fake theatrics. The principle of self defense is well established. My answer was an honest one. I've never faced that, but I would think we would not do it. My wife's input would be of enormous importance. Knowing her as I do, I think I know what she would say. But any semi-thoughtful person can see the difference between an abortion to protect the mother's life versus what nearly all abortions are about which is convenience.

    The usual non-answer. Typical. The question remains on the board. If you were the doctor, how would you go about taking the life of that 19 week fetus pictured above?

    There's nothing to answer since there was no question asked. The Genesis scripture was not in reference to abortion or a woman being pregnant or giving birth. You will not find a medical book anywhere which says that an unborn child is somehow not alive since it is not breathing. It is preposterous. It's about as dumb as saying that the child must eat to be considered alive. It's as absurd as destroying a nest full of eagle eggs and then pleading that, after all, Athos said it must be breathing to be alive, and the eagles in the eggs were not yet breathing. Try that and see how far you get with it.

    At 19 weeks [pictured in a post above], your baby measures about 6 1/4 inches (15.8 centimeters) from the top of their head to the bottom of the buttocks. Their height is approximately 9 inches (22.8 centimeters) from the top of the head to the heel (crown-heel length). By this week of pregnancy, your baby will weigh around 9 1/2 ounces (272 grams).

But the question simply asks you to tell us if you are alright with a woman getting an abortion for the reasons you listed. Are you saying that you would be OK with an abortion for one of those reasons as long as the woman was counseled?

    What could possibly be your point in having others describe abortion procedures as you have done? Seems pretty sick to me.

    Note to readers - compare Jl's posts with mine. Who's got the FACTS? Anger? Damn right - righteous anger at your phony compassion for a fetus, especially when it's your wife who needs the abortion. Then all compassion goes out the window.

    You will not find a medical book anywhere which says that an unborn child is somehow not alive since it is not breathing. It is preposterous.
    She was referring to viable human life. You always skip that inconvenient fact.

    I never said anything of the sort. Stop misquoting me.

    Once again I predicted your response correctly.

    Just more theatrics.

    I haven't changed my position. My first statement was, "Perhaps. I imagine my wife and I would have agreed to pray and put it in God's hands, but I've never been in that situation. Now how about the other 99.99% of the cases?". Now of course you have not answered the question there. Business as usual.

    Gruesome and grizzly details? You just, as the famous line goes, can't handle the truth. That is exactly what happens in a D&E abortion. Contradict it if you can.

    You never said anything of the sort? Well, you never say anything of any sort. You are so hesitant to answer questions, it's hard to know where you stand. But you can solve that problem now. What is your standard of when life begins?

    Note to readers. You can be certain that question will not be answered.

    Counseling will include discussion of all those issues.

    And still no explanation of what point you were trying to make in post 21. Just more evasion and suggestions to look here and look there. Forbid it that you should just state your meaning.

    Evasion.
    Post 22.
