Via cardic injection before an induction, or a D & E if the woman does not want to birth the baby, or an intact d & r (or partial birth). How else do you propose a healthy viable foetus is able to be terminated? I know they are distressing. It is a horrible horrible thing that happens to our babies. And again this highlights that we would prefer to ignore and bury our head in te sand.
    I think you are making assumptions. Many people are aware of the various ways a fetus is terminated, they just choose to show a little sensitivity to the people on this forum that have been through this process.

    I think Cindarella has been sensitive, yet honest (unless ive missed a post) and has been answering questions by other posters.

    Ive enjoyed reading her posts as another perspective.

    There was a post a couple days ago that was incredibly graphic and edited by moderators.

    We obviously have different definitions of sensitivity.

    Ah ok.

    I do think that its good to be informed as long as its accurate information and there is a warning for those who may find it distressing.

    Just as those who have had a termination might find it hard to read about them and hear differing viewpoints, those who are pro life for the same reasons also find hearing that others have had them and the details hard too.

    I guess it all depends on where you stand on the matter.

    I don't think it should matter where you stand. If the intent was to 'inform' a link could have been discretely left for people to follow themselves. Writing graphic descriptions here in this thread seemed like an opportunistic way to flout the general rules regarding this topic that exist elsewhere in the forum. I'm surprised it was allowed as long as it was.

    One of those cases where ones own agenda becomes more important than social decency.

    You can't really make the judgement that only pro-choice would find it offensive then.

    I'm confident that it was upsetting no matter your beliefs on the topic.

    and with that, I'm bowing out (did I hear a sigh of relief?) I've invested too much emotionally into thinking about this. I just ask that you please, please try to educate yourselves on the truth before you form an opinion. Ignorance is bliss but our babies deserve for us to be informed about what happens to them. Termination (particulatly late term) is just the greatest tragedy of our day and it breaks my heart.
    I sort of agree. I think unless a woman is terminating for medical reasons she should be fully informed if what the procedure involves.
