"Partian birth" abortion is misnamed. It implies the baby would have
lived, if nobody had interfered.

These are late-term pregnancies of horribly deformed babies, who will
not survive without nutrients from the mothers' bodies. They will die,
outside the womb. Even though they will not have normal -- or even
functionally below normal -- brain function, they will die agonizing

Now, that's only the "living" babies.

Most of these late term procedures are done on babies WHO ARE DEAD
inside the mother!

The safest way to remove the dead tissue (which can kill the mother) is
by removing it vaginally, in pieces.

It is a horrible situation. The mother is grieving the death of her
child. Her health and life are in tremendous danger. And the state is
telling her doctor not to perform a necessary, medical procedure to save
her life.

So, doctors are having to perform emergency C-sections to remove these
dead babies. This puts the mother at greater risk of dying, as it cuts
open her belly and her uterus. She is probably already compromised. She
may suffer blood poisoning, from the dead baby inside her. Interfering
with her circulation, by cutting into her, can spread the poisons and
kill her.

These procedures are RARELY done and then only in emergencies.

I thought the Conservatives believed in keeping the government out of
our lives? Why does that not pertain to women's bodies, and the medical
professionals who CARE for women's bodies?

Spectacular Specula
I've had a speculum since I was 17.
I'd run away from a VERY psychotic mother and was living in Venice
Beach, Ca, during the seventies.
There, I met quite a few of those "seventies feminists." They saved my
life. They taught me to take care of myself: balance a check book,
change my own tires & oil, get an education, etc. They taught me not to
be a "typical female:" a victim of circumstances, dependent on men who
might exploit me.
Most young, blonde, pretty women who run away from home and end up in
Los Angeles end up: dead, addicted or pimped. Usually, all three.
We learned self-examinations together. The Boston Women's Health
Collective had just published the book, _Our Bodies, Ourselves_ . I
still own my first-edition copy.
Most women have no idea how their bodies work, or even what they look
like. And many think they're ugly.
I've been very fortunate.
