    fetus (NOT A BABY, THEY ARE BORN…GOOGLE THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT CHART) is a parasite because the classification of the biological relationship that is based on the behavior of one organism (the fetus) and how it relates to the woman’s body:

    as a zygote, it invaded the woman’s uterus using its Trophoblast cells and hijacked her immune system by using Neurokinin B—so her body won’t KILL it, and stole her nutrients to survive and causes her harm or potential DEATH!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trophoblast
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immune_tolerance_in_pregnancy

    “it is also possible for a symbiotic relationship to exist between two organisms of the same species.”
    http://www.answers.com/topic/symbiosis ––Gale’s Science of Everyday Things:
    Symbiosis

    “an animal or plant that lives in or on another (the host) from which it obtains nourishment. The host does not benefit from the association and is often harmed by it”
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/parasite

    if a man can kill his tapeworm at anytime, so should a woman abort her unwanted human parasitic fetus at anytime, too.

    ABORTION IS A CIVIL AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT SUPPORTED BY THE RIGHTS TO PRIVACY, THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE OF 14TH AMENDMENT, AND THE 13TH AMENDMENT.

    no human has a right to life or any due process rights by the 14th amendment to use another human’s body or body parts AGAINST their will, civil and constitutional rights: that’s why you are not force to donate your kidney—the human fetus is no exception; this is protected by the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_Protection_Clause

    consensual sex =/= a legal, binding contract for an unwanted fetus to live.

    ALL THE REPUBLICANS ARE PRO-LIFE, SCHIZOPHRENIC FASCISTS WHOSE SUPPORTS REPRODUCTIVE SLAVERY OF AMERICAN FEMALE CITIZENS, WHICH IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL BY THE 13TH AMENDMENT.

     

    if a man can kill his tapeworm at anytime, so should a woman abort her unwanted human parasitic fetus at anytime, too.

    Lorraine,

    Thank you for sharing your heart wrenching story.  It is such stories that help me remember why I’m fighting so hard against 26.

     

  • crowepps

    I am so sorry this happened to you.  Thank you so much for sharing your experience.   This is traumatic and an indelible memory for the many women  to whom it has happened.  I had a miscarriage over 30 years ago a few weeks after a non-injury car accident and to this day, if I dwell on the details, I tear up.  My doctor at the time assured me that the car accident did not cause the miscarriage but I never believed him.  If that happened in Mississippi, there could have been an investigation at a time when I was bereft and ill, feeling guilty and trying to act normal so my 9 year-old son wouldn’t be alarmed by my sadness.  I honestly don’t think I could have stood the additional stress.

  • sympathetic-reader

    I’m sorry to read about your heartbreaking experience.  More of us moms have flushed fetuses down the toilet than most people may think, in the middle of a traumatic miscarriage.  I hope you are able to heal and forgive yourself.  As a mother of three great kids, with a couple of miscarriages under my belt as well, I cannot even imagine the cruelty and idiocy of trying to criminally regulate what goes on in the middle of a miscarriage.  It’s a horrible enough experience without having some crazy law interfering.  Get some common sense and decency, Mississippi!  Thanks for sharing your personal pain in an effort to stop the insanity.

  • lizardrebel

    You were shown such compasion; I only wish others could show all Mississippi women the same.

  • stacey-spiehler

    This is heartbreaking to read.  I’m especially conscious of the part where you had to walk through a room knowing that your uterus was emptying – I’ve had to do that too.  As a Mississippi resident who has had 3 pregnancies go horribly awry, I am TERRIFIED of 26.  But I’m fighting it body mind and soul. 

     

    Many, many hugs to you for having to live this, and having to relive it as my state seeks to drastically change how women in our position are treated. 

  • ahunt

    It has been 25 years…and time has not healed all wounds. Thank you.

     

     

  • purplemistydez

    Not sure what to say.  I’m so sorry for your loss.  Your story goes straight to the heart.  If only anti-choicers could know that these laws would have only made your situation even more worse than it was.

  • wendy-banks

    I’m really sorry that happened to you :(

    Personhood will not make having a miscarriage a crime any more than before Roe v. Wade.

    Gale,

    I’ll keep your comments in mind the next time I go to a “Parasite Shower” and shop for that special “parasite gift”.

    It is simply bringing the constitution in line with what science already recognizes: “By all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception.” Dr. Hymie Gordon, Chairman, Department of Genetics at the Mayo Clinic

     

    “The only times we even question whether human beings are persons (or “truly” human) are during exploitation and injustice. During the Holocaust, in support of slavery, and to spread eugenics, for example, we have questioned whether the people exploited or abused are really, truly human. To me, that’s powerful.”http://liveaction.org/blog/is-it-a-person/

    Not true.  If a fertilized egg  is legally considered a person than that death must be investigated and  reported, just like any born person who dies. It’s not actually the first time the pro-life movement has tried to pull  this stunt.  Congressman Randy Forbes in Virginia tried to pass a law saying that if you didn’t report a miscarriage to the authorities within 24 hours you would be guilty of a felony.

    A bridal shower is given for a woman who is not yet a bride.

     

    A baby shower is given for a embryo/fetus that is not yet a living, breathing person.

     

    Both events are given in anticipation of a future event.

     

    And you are a vicious forced-birther trying to make your idiotic superstitions into laws that HURT LIVING, BREATHING WOMEN.

  • goatini

    YOU MAKE ME SICK.  My father lived through that for me to live in FREEDOM – you make a mockery of his life and his torture by using his suffering to try to force free, autonomous female US citizens to go back to being chattel property for breeding purposes.  My father wanted MORE for me and his other daughters than to have us live in a theocracy as livestock, like YOU want for us.

     

    Posting that Liarla Rose lying garbage that is meant to HURT LIVING, BREATHING WOMEN.

     

    Insulting the memory of the brave Sojourner Truth, a LIVING, BREATHING WOMAN, and diminishing her life and her contributions to free, autonomous female US citizens – comparing her glorious living breathing being to a single-celled organism.  

     

    You are really a vile individual, along with all the rest of your aiders and abetters.  All of the glorious beauty of free, autonomous, living, breathing female US citizens – to you and your cabal they are NOTHING compared to a single-celled organism.  Female US citizens tripped of their human, civil and Constitutional rights – to you and your cabal they deserve NOTHING except to be livestock. 

     

    LIFE AS CHATTEL PROPERTY AND LIVESTOCK IS NOT “BEAUTIFUL” – IT IS SLAVERY.

  • colleen

    Last time I checked, Lila Rose, (who is getting a bit long in the tooth) has not gestated any children. I find it odd that women who are so ‘pro-life’ they make their living advocating for a world where other women are forced to breed or die, have so few children themselves. We should call this the Ann Coulter syndrome.

  • lifeisbeautiful88

    Just as all parents with children who die of SIDS are not investigated without probable cause, the same would be true here.  

     

    Maybe you can explain why even though the eagle is no longer an endangered species, its eggs are still federally protected while they’re still in the mother eagle; once they are laid; through the 35-day incubation period and beyond through hatching. In fact, even the nonliving eagle egg shell is protected by the federal law. We’re talking a $100,000 fine! Shouldn’t a human baby have at least the same protection under the law?

    Quotes from pro-forced birthers.

     

     

    “Anders Behring Breivik christian terrorist, pro-forced-birther.

    What he thinks about womens rights, women need to breed, breed, breed.

    He has the same ideas for women as republicans, conservatives, and pro-lifers.

     

    1. Limit the distribution of birth-control pills (contraceptive pills): Discourage the use of and prevent liberal distribution of contraceptive pills or equivalent prevention methods. The goal should be to make it considerably more difficult to obtain. This alone should increase the fertility rate by 0,1 points but would degrade women’s rights.

    2. Reform sex education: Reform the current sex education in our school institutions. This may involve limiting it or at least delaying sex education to a later age and discourage casual sex. Sex should only be encouraged within the boundaries of marriage. This alone should increase the fertility rate by 0,1 points.

    3. Making abortion illegal: A re-introduction of the ban on abortion should result in an increased fertility rate of approximately 0,1-0,2 points but would strip women of basic rights.

    4. Women and education: Discourage women in general to strive for full time careers. This will involve certain sexist and discriminating policies but should increase the fertility rate by up to 0,1-0,2 points.

    Women should not be encouraged by society/media to take anything above a bachelor’s degree but should not be prevented from taking a master or PhD. Males on the other hand should obviously continue to be encouraged to take higher education – bachelor, master and PhD.”

     

    Self-Described ‘Christian Counterpart To Osama Bin Laden’ Arrested In Plot To Bomb Abortion Clinic

    Justin Carl Moose describe “himself” as the Christian counterpart to Osama bin Laden. Moose wrote: “I have learned a lot from the muslim terrorists and have no problem using their tactics.” ”

     

     

     

    “St. Augustine said, “Any woman who acts in such a way that she cannot give birth to as many children as she is capable of, makes herself guilty of that many murders.”

     

     

    ”Martin Luther wrote: “God created Adam lord of all living creatures, but Eve spoiled it all. Women should remain at home, sit still, keep house and bear children. And if a woman grows weary and, at last, dies from childbearing, it matters not. Let her die from bearing; she is there to do it.”

     

     

     

     

    Pro-lifers favorite piece of literature of all time.

     

    Genesis 3:16

    “I will greatly multiply your grief and your suffering in pregnancy and the pangs of childbearing; with spasms of distress you will bring forth children. Yet your desire and cravings will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

     

     

     

    ”Church excommunicates mother of 9-year-old rape victim – but not accused rapist.”

     A senior Vatican cleric has defended the Catholic Church’s decision to excommunicate the mother and doctors of a nine-year-old rape victim who had a life-saving abortion in Brazil.”

    “Police believe the girl was sexually assaulted for years by her stepfather, possibly since she was six. That she was four months pregnant with twins emerged only after she was taken to hospital complaining of severe stomach pains.”

    Lifeisbeautiful, I’ve already explained that to you. It’s a bad analogy and not the ‘gotcha’ question that you think it is.  If the mother eagle harmed or destroyed her own eggs, no one would fine or prosecute her. 

  • crowepps

    Just as all parents with children who die of SIDS are not investigated without probable cause, the same would be true here.

    Well, yeah, but you see, that’s part of the problem.  The nice middle class White lady who has the Pastor’s wife over for tea and gets all tearful about her ‘tragic miscarriage’ may have made a quick trip over the State line to have an abortion but she isn’t going to be bothered at all.  The poor single girl who’s still living with her Mom, the married woman with three kids exhausted from working as a waitress, since they don’t have social protection or money, they will be prosecuted, especially if they’re Black.

     

    By the way, those baby eagles?  Most common cause of death is one of their siblings shoving them out of the nest.  Nature is cruel.
