  •  Don't get me wrong (0+ / 0-)

    I'm not saying the government should have any say at all on whether a woman can legally receive an abortion or not. I guess that makes me pro-choice and pro-life at the same time? I'm just saying that the original post was factually wrong and that at 6 weeks you are indeed hearing the fetus' own heartbeat - unless I misunderstood you.

    And you are correct, I believe "life" begins at implantation. I also believe that an abortion is a medical procedure that might be necessary for any number of reasons and the only people who should be involved in the decision are the women and her doctor. So, while I do believe that aborting a fetus is indeed ending a life (or "murder", hyperbole), I also understand that my views should not be forced upon others.

    •  Thanks, I was wrong and that is odd (1+ / 0-)

      because I had 3 IVFs and was desparate to hear "heartbeats"!

      I hoped those clumps of cells were a baby so I understand it is "life" yet after 3 IVFs it is clear that it was OUR tissue and OUR business

      thanks
