    What child, it was nothing more than a bag of cells, right?

    Re: Do we have funeral services for miscarried babies?

    I had a friend whose sister-in-law miscarried at 6 months and they did have a funeral. She said they did the complete service at a church and cemetary then afterwards they went to the parents house where they had up pictures of the miscarried baby and ate some lunch. Not ultrasound pictures, but the actual miscarried baby. I thought that to be quite morbid and a little weird. If I miscarried I would not have a funeral service at all but I would want a proper burial.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    I think at 6 months gestation, it is called a "pre-term birth" NOT a "miscarriage."

    Were you surprised at how much that cancerous clump of the mother's cellular tissue looked like an infant?

    I didn't see it because I didn't actually go to the thing, I heard about it second hand. Even if I did go I probably wouldn't look at the pictures, as I said, having the pictures out like that was just plain wierd.

    So no, I wasn't surprised.

It was my only unplanned pregnancy, I was not intending on aborting it, but it really wasn't a optimal time for an oops of that magnitude. It was a huge relief when I miscarried. I have no doubt that some other women have been equally "fortunate". I will give you that MOST women grieve.
    Good point. I amend my post to say 'most' (too late to be able to edit)

    If (and I am only assuming here) you would defiantly hold a funeral to express grievance for a miscarriage, you wouldn't expect your neighbor to necessarily hold a funeral to express grievance for a miscarriage, correct?
    No, I do not oppose allowing my neighbor to choice to abort, or to handle any feelings she may have about a miscarriage in whatever way way she sees fit.

    While my personal religious beliefs would not allow me to abort, I do not believe my religious beliefs should be the law of the land because I feel the first amendment means that we are not to make laws based solely on religious beliefs.

    Currently, previable fetuses are not considered children under the laws in the US - and that is not just laws about abortion. I have often wondered why those who feel life begins at conception and that US laws should be based on their religious beliefs have not attempted to pass laws that give fetuses the sames rights and protections as children instead of attempting to overturn Roe vrs Wade.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    What claims would those be? That if something looks like a human we shouldn't kill it?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
