  •  I've known five women in my life (9+ / 0-)

    who I know for sure had ectopic pregnancies.  Every single one of them wanted that baby desperately.

    Tax breaks for a fetus, but not for actual living, breathing children?  Are these men married?  Do they have mothers?  Wives?  Sisters?  Daughters?

    If I were carrying a child I didn't want and couldn't take care of in Michigan, I would be sorely tempted to list one of those GOP asswipes as the father and walk out.

    Strength and dignity are her clothing, she rejoices at the days to come; She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.

      not a memory. The ectopic pregnancy threatened that.

        were among my dearest friends.  

        I've lost track of one of them, but the other now has a 7-year-old daughter and a son a few years younger - neither of whom would have been born without the abortion.  She's a pediatric cardiologist by profession.
