Best “Choice” A Woman Can Make Is To Die For Her Fetus

If a woman refuses chemotherapy that would save her life in order to
not endanger her pregnancy is that a choice to be celebrated? For the conservative website “Hot Air” the answer is a resounding yes.

When diagnosed with cancer and pregnant, Stacy Crimm faced a series of
choices. She could terminate the pregnancy and undergo chemotherapy,
treat the cancer and, presuming a positive outcome, try for another
pregnancy. Or, she could refuse treatment in an attempt to save her
developing fetus.

Crimm chose the later, dying three days after giving birth to a
significantly premature infant. And the anti-choice supporters could not
be more proud. They romanticize Crimm’s physical suffering, calling it
“unimaginable” and point to Crimm as a hopeful example to help all
mothers see “nothing is worth the sacrifice of their own child.”

Not surprising though, these anti-choice supporters are silent on the
fate of Crimm’s premature infant now. The child is not being raised by
her mother, and who knows what kind of medical complications she faces
as a result of her mother’s decision.

Furthermore, the anti-choice crowd is silent on the fact that Crimm
is lucky that she had a choice to make. Abortion was an option–not one
that Crimm chose to take–but an option nonetheless. And the fact that
the anti-choice crowd refuses to acknowledge that key fact while
simultaneously holding up Crimm as a martyr for her choice shows just
how little regard this “life” movement has for actual life.

    The issue isn't about "life", it's about religious dogma. That dogma was important to obey 3000 years ago, when the tribe was under constant attack from rival tribes, disease, high infant mortality, high rates of death during childbirth, etc.

    However, today those who defend this dogma don't know why it is they are defending it, and certainly aren't intelligent enough to figure out that, in a world of 7 billion people, this dogma is no longer important enough to over-ride other concerns.

    You are absolutely right. This planet is becoming over populated and is rapidly increasing exponentially. It has to stop befor world wide food and water shortages kill us all.

    The child was given a chance at life by her mothers unselfish decision made out of love for her unborn child. The baby is now being raised by her aunt and uncle.

    That's because the pro-life movement is largely hysterical and hypocritical.

    Abortions does not happen at that stage of pregnancy either. It is more than obvious tthat is in the very last month of pregnancy.

    And an infant near birth having its' brains sucked out doesn't suffer? Oh, sorry, they're just parasitic worms. That's how you justify it.

    Fetuses at that stage are normally un-viable and will not survive or their mother will also die.

    5 minutes before birth? Stop.

    If the fetus is dying, there is no reason to proceed.

    Really? I hope you never work at the neonatal unit at a hospital.
  • bricklyn Simmeri... 2011/12/10 17:08:56
    I have never worked there, but I have been there. I have also seen the end results of the infants that survive. They end up with brain damage and frequently severe disabilities. In the USA the parents also end up with astronomical medial bills as well.

    Maybe you should actually think about the mother and her already existing family. You people seem to forget all about the fetus the instant it is born.

    Do you even give a damn about the 145,000 children that are waiting in foster care this instant that are waiting for loving family that will never see any family life of their own?

    No. You should be thanking me for the truth.
  • bricklyn Simmeri... 2011/11/20 19:02:17
    No truth there, only propaganda. No consideration for the women and the existing families either. The fact is that people like you completely forget about the fetus the instant it is born.

    Women give birth to babies, not fetuses. Stop playing the justification game. If you want to trick yourself fine but don't demand that I play your psychological games too.
  • bricklyn Simmeri... 2011/11/20 19:20:33
    It is not a baby until it is born. Until that instant it is a fetus. That is the accepted language. If you want to delude yourself you are fee to do that. I have no need to play your stupid games either.

    Particularly when you have no respect for women and their quality of life and personal circumstances. Women make up the majority of those living under the poverty level, until they have control over their reproduction that will always remain that way. they will remain as slaves to their bodies.

    So a name justifies killing it until it is born? That's how you are rationalizing? Or are you saying it isn't necessarily ok to kill a fetus?

    "Particularly when you have no respect for women and their quality of life and personal circumstances."

    First of all, that's not even a sentence. Second, you are projecting what you believe I feel about women when you know no such thing. Again, you are playing psychological games to justify your bankrupt position.
  • bricklyn Simmeri... 2011/11/20 23:22:21
    It is not a bankrupt position.

    Christians all over the planet accept that position. Their god commanded genocide, infanticide and the slaughter of the unborn and that is completely acceptable to them. The god of the bible is not pro-life on any level.

    I and many life me are very much in favor of treating women and their existing families with as much consideration and humanity as possible. They are already here on this planet and need to be protected and nurtured and helped to become as productive as possible to be able to achieve their goals. They should not be oppressed and given any more burdens to keep them impoverished or enslaved by debt or finances or stress. They need as much encouragement and help by society as possible.

    People like you have no concern for those who are already living and the live they have to deal with every single day. You abandon the image of the fetus the instant it is born and you also have no ongoing concern for the children in foster care either. That is classic hypocrisy, you never see the whole picture.
