Babies are dependent on their parents for nourishment. Hell, anyone who doesn't have a job is dependent for nourishment. Doesn't change the fact that it IS an independent and distinct organism.As it's dependent on another independent being, this is untrue.
Biological fact.Biologically untrue.
I specifically put that in my post.
Women who have legal abortions after viability do so because of extrene cases.
Here is a little info about legal late term abortions.
Since the death of Dr. Tiller a few years ago there are only 4 doctors in the USA who legally perform third trimester abortions.
Less than .08 percent of all legal abortions that occur in the USA take place at or after 24 weeks gestation.
These are the extreme cases. The cases where the woman's life or irreparable to major bodily function would take place if the pregnancy were allowed to continue ,when the fetus died a natural death in the womb but failed to expelled naturally, ( yes, when a doctor removes a dead fetus and the fetal material from the womb it is still called an abortion and it is included in the abortion stat numbers ), when a fetus will be stillborn or when the fetus will only live a few minutes or hours.
Kansas was one of only a small handful of states that allowed legal late term abortions back in 2008.
Dr. Tiller was one of 5 doctors who performed late term abortions at that time.
Out of state OB/GYNs who had patients with the late term extreme complications that I mentioned would often send their patients to Dr. Tiller for their late term abortions.
Kansas recorded the numbers of abortions that took place after 22 weeks gestion in 2008.
There were 323 abortions that took place at or after 22 weeks gestation (40 weeks gestation is considered full term).
192 of those abortions was because the fetus was NOT viable.
It had died in the womb , it would be stillborn, or it was so malformed it would live only a few minutes or hours.
They were not viaible and never had a chance of living.
The other 132 late term (22 weeks gestation or later ) abortions were because there would be irreparable damage to a major bodily function if the pregnancy continued.
Let's not forget also that most humans don't care for things until they become part of the social fabric. Think for a bit ''Why are non human animals given more consideration then the unborn''? The answer is not hard really
IN THE NEWS...
Abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell Condemned by Pro-Abortion Rights Groups - ABC NewsApril 22, 2013
The defense of controversial abortion Dr. Kermitt Gosnell gets underway in Phialdelphia this week, but he cannot expect any support from some of the country's most pro abortion rights advocacy organizations who "unequivocally denounced" his practice.
Leaders from Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation said that Gosnell's abortion clinic was an affront to high-quality, safe abortion clinics who operate under proper regulations across the country.
Gosnell's attorneys were supposed to begin their defense today but it was postponed until Tuesday due to illness on the defense team. The trial is entering its sixth week of testimony in the high-profile trial, which could result in the death penalty for Gosnell.
99% of the time when the unborn are killed they have none of the characteristics I told you. Until something is part of our social fabric which your 26 year old cousin obviously is part of human typically don't care for it.
Think why for example non human animals are giving more consideration most of the time then the unborn.
Those "late term abortions" involved murdering babies after they were born. They 'snipped" the babies necks.Dr. Tiller was one of 5 doctors who performed late term abortions at that time.
Perhaps Dr.Gosnell and has staff had meetings regarding "extraordinary measures" also. That may be his defense for killing these babies, if there is such a defense.
I think he should pay with his life for that if true.
Hopefully he gets the death sentence or they at lock him up
The Born Alive law requires that medical help be given for any infant born alive.
Tht means if they were a wanted baby who was born
very early or if they survived an abortion attempt.
Extraordinary measures means open heart surgery, surgery to put organs that are on the outside of body back inside the body , the use of infant cpap machines, etc.
