    I wonder why some people are afraid to talk about this?
    Uh, no one said anything about afraid, tool.
    Hmmmm...maybe they dont like the facts interfering with their beliefs on abortion!
    Facts are one thing, emotional arguments are another. Get it straight.
    Oh, I guess abortion is not a nursing issue?
    Nope. It's not.
    Gee - thanks for educating us!
    No problem. I will take the time to educate any smart-a$$ed newbie who thinks it's okay to keep rehashing their own political agendas on a nursing board.

    Don't worry, though. The rest of us who've been here for a while and don't give a crap about your little crusade will ignore you. Thanks for playing, please try again.

    Fine. Yes, you're right, they should. But hey, don't come crying to me when this thread deteriorates into name-calling like it did with the whole breastfeeding an 8 y.o. thing!!

    *sigh* Here we go again...................

    I'm telling you, NO ONE can debate for long on this bb about such an emotionally and politically charged topic without it totally falling apart and the thread being locked.

    Oh, well. Y'all have fun. Don't say I didn't warn you.........

    It is happily highly likely the President will sign the bill into law, and we will rid our nation of this most barbarous procedure.

    WHAT I KNOW ABOUT PBA:

    There is NEVER a situation where it is medically necessary.

    The cervix is dilated over 24 plus hours with laminaria.

    The position of the unborn baby is identified, such as with ultrasound.

    The abortionist reaches into the uterus and induces a breech, feet first, delivery.

    The unborn baby is then delivered, all except the head, which is kept in the birth canal.

    Surgical scissors are then jammed into the back of the baby's skull and an opening is enlarged into the cranium.

    Rigid suction catheter is then inserted into the cranial vault, and the brains are suctioned out.

    The skull is then collapsed.

    The now dead baby's delivery is completed by the abortionist.

    Immediate complications to the mother can include placental rupture, severe bleeding, uterine puncture, bowel puncture, bladder puncture, pulmonary embolism, live birth and occasionally death.

    Delayed complications include pelvic infections, increased future miscarriages due to compromised cervix tone, sterility, breast cancer and Post Abortion Syndrome emotional distresses.

    Treatments for serious near term complications can inculde blood transfusions, emergency uterine, bowel and bladder surgery, colostomy, IV antibiotics and further procedures to remove missed POCs.

    The further the abortion is done in pregnancy, often the more severe the Post Abortion Syncrome emotional distresses can be. These include suicide, severe depression, sleep disturbances, appetite disturbances, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, difficulty relating to children, difficulty relating to spouse...

    The PBA (D & X) abortion of mid and late term pregnancies by the abortion industry is favoured, as it provides the opportunity to harvest for sale developed aborted baby body parts, tissues, organs and cadavers.

    The procedure strikes me as, not merely barbaric, but something that a nazi death camp or communist gulag medical research "Doctor" would be proud of.

    I think it is high time that this most monsterous procdure is banned from our nation.

    What do YOU think?

    I agree 100% from the heart. This barbaric practice needs to be stopped. (Would have been if our illustrious ex-president Clinton hadn't vetoed it TWO times.) Another example of the slippery slope and the loss of conscience. Such a procedure would have horrified even the most ardent abortion advocates just a generation ago.
