  •  but that's what they want to do - end it all (0+ / 0-)

    no exceptions for rape, incest or life of the mother

    that's why they hate, literally hate and refuse to use the word "fetus," or zygote, or blastocyst.  Those words are clinical (and correct) and devote of emotion . . .they want the only word used in this conversation to be "baby" and go after you when you for being cold, frigid, unemotional, evil person for not using their emotional buzz words.

    I'd like to see them snuggle and coo over a blastocyst in their arms.

      that I hoped would be my IVF success, but three of them later, nothing.

      yes, those six cells could have been my BABY, I felt that, yet felt more strongly than ever that it was no one else's business

      you can both believe in potential life and in reproductive rights

        that made me question whether I was pregnant.  Almost an impossibility and I also knew it was probably menopause . . but there was a nagging question so I bought a pregnancy test just to put my mind at ease.

        Even though I knew what the answer would be for me if the test said "yes" even with all the risks - it still was MY CHOICE - a choice I would never want to take away from any other woman, and if the possible pregnancy went south and my life was endanger there was be an abortion, no question.

        the test was thankfully, negative

        but forgive me, isn't snuggling a picture of 6 cells sort of life snuggling a picture of [insert name of your favorite piece of eye candy here]?  I was talking about snuggling an actual blastocyst ;-)
