Alright people, so we promised it and here it is. Our post about Abortion. Now those of you who are wondering what the hell this has to do with this month’s theme of love, sex and relationships are the people who should not be having any sex at all before something horrible happens. We’ve got a video and a shitload of graphic pictures courtesy of myself, Poison, so prepare to be offended and disgusted.
So before we get into the whole educational bit of this I’m going to come straight out and say that I am all for abortion. Yes, as a man some people would say that it’s unfair for me to say that since I don’t really know what it’s like as a woman to go through the whole ordeal. There are some people who say that men shouldn’t even have an opinion in the matter since it’s not their bodies and they’re right to a point; I don’t know what they have to go through. Still, facts are that it takes two to tango and even if my input doesn’t mean shit I still will say that I am all for abortion…in some situations.
Alas, I don’t think people should have kids if they don’t want to which is the basis for my reasoning. I personally do not wish to have children…ever. Now I know that the simple way to avoid this is to stop having sex but let’s be realistic here. Shit happens, condoms break or people get caught up in the heat of the moment but shit happens and if you’re going to have sex then you should be prepared to accept the consequences of your actions. I’m willing to accept the consequences but in no way will I change my stance on abortion.
So to begin, we’re going to talk about all the different kinds of abortion. We also get pictures that are excessively graphic. Why would I give excessively graphic photos although I’m pro- abortion? Because even if I am more than willing to off a human embryo I still think it’s necessary to know the extent of the damage I’m doing. Note that I’ve copy pasted this from this site and this site since they were particularly graphic in the pictures, yum yum 🙂 So here’s a little bit of stolen background information. Note that I am not an authority on abortion but I will say this- don’t take what I say as truth but take it as incentive to seek the truth.
At Eight Weeks
At eight to nine weeks the eyelids have begun forming and hair appears. By the ninth and tenth weeks the preborn child sucks its thumb, turns somersaults, jumps, can squint to close out light, frown, swallow, and move its tongue.
At this early stage of development, suction abortions are performed using a smaller tube, requiring little dilation of the cervix. This is called “menstrual extraction.” However, if all the fetal remains are not removed, infection results, requiring full dilation of the cervix and a scraping out of the womb.
This form isn’t so bad since it’s still pretty small. Aside from the fact that it’s developing some features we’re not at the worst stages yet. We’re still in the good and green area of things. Although an unwanted/unplanned pregnancy isn’t really ever a good thing so…Up to this point is where I can completely approve of abortion no matter what the circumstances. If you want it then go for it. Take note though, after this point is where you begin to get my real moral qualms.
This is the most common method of abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. General or local anesthesia is given to the mother and her cervix is quickly dilated. A suction curette (hollow tube with a knife-edged tip) is inserted into the womb. This instrument is then connected to a vacuum machine by a transparent tube. The vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta into small pieces which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded. Here in Canada, where we currently operate, this form of abortion is usually done up to 14 weeks in hospitals and in some areas they do it at even 20 weeks.
Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
This method is similar to the suction method with the added insertion of a hook shaped knife (curette) which cuts the baby into pieces. The pieces are scraped out through the cervix and discarded [Note: This abortion method should not be confused with a therapeutic D&C done for reasons other than pregnancy.] After the cervix is dilated, the baby is dismembered with a loop-shaped knife and the body parts are scraped out of the womb through the cervix…For some reason I imagine scooping ice cream out of a bucket but you’re getting chunks of baby instead of rocky road.
At Twelve Weeks
By the end of the third month all arteries are present, including the coronary vessels of the heart. Blood is circulating through these vessels to all body parts. The heart beat ranges during this fetal period from 110 to 160 beats per minute. All blood cells are produced by the liver and spleen, a job soon taken over by the bone marrow. White blood cells, important for immunity, are formed in the lymph nodes and thymus Vocal chords are complete, and the child can and does sometimes cry (silently). The brain is fully formed, and the child can feel pain. The fetus may even suck its thumb. The eyelids now cover the eyes, and will remain shut until the seventh month to protect the delicate optical nerve fibers. This is where you’ve reached the point of no return with me. Unless you have a damn good excuse for going 12 weeks, that’s 3 months nearly, without getting an abortion then you do not have my approval. I can’t nod to you on doing it at this point in time unless you can provide me some damn good reasons like you were raped…otherwise, if you’re having sex and you let this shit happen then take some goddamn responsibility for your actions!
14 weeks: Muscles lengthen and become organized. The mother will soon start feeling the first flutters of the baby kicking and moving inside.
15 weeks: The fetus has an adult’s taste buds and may be able to savor the mother’s meals.
16 weeks: Five and a half inches tall and only six ounces in weight, eyebrows, eyelashes and fine hair appear. The child can grasp with his hands, kick, or even somersault.
At Eighteen Weeks
The fetus is now about 5 inches long. The child blinks, grasps, and moves its mouth. Hair grows on the head and body.
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E)
This method is used up to 18 weeks’ gestation. Instead of the loop-shaped knife used in D&C abortions, a pair of forceps is inserted into the womb to grasp part of the fetus. The teeth of the forceps twist and tear the bones of the unborn child. This process is repeated until the fetus is totally dismembered and removed. Usually the spine must be snapped and the skull crushed in order to remove them. This abortion method is used at a later stage in the baby’s development. As he cuts away the placenta, the doctor uses forceps with teeth to grasp body parts, to separate them from the body with a twisting movement, and to crush the skull. The body parts and placenta are removed.
So here’s the gruesome process in five simple steps:
- Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.
- The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
- The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.
- The abortionist inserts scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
- The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
20 weeks: The child can hear and recognize mother’s voice. Though still small and fragile, the baby is growing rapidly and could possibly survive if born at this stage. Fingernails and fingerprints appear. Sex organs are visible. Using an ultrasound device, the doctor can tell if the child is a girl or a boy. The one on the left is a baby girl.
Salt Poisoning (Saline Injection):
Used after 16 weeks (four months) when enough fluid has accumulated. A long needle injects a strong salt solution through the mother’s abdomen into the baby’s sac. The baby swallows this fluid and is poisoned by it. It also acts as a corrosive, burning off the outer layer of skin. It normally takes somewhat over an hour for the baby to die from this. Within 24 hours, labor will usually set in and the mother will give birth to a dead or dying baby. (There have been many cases of these babies being born alive. They are usually left unattended to die. However, a few have survived and later been adopted.)
The other methods were bad, but by far this one has got to have been the worst I’ve seen. I mean…I’ve heard about back alley coat hanger abortions in third world countries but this method takes the cake for me.
At Six Months
Seen here at six months, the unborn child is covered with a fine, downy hair called lanugo. Its tender skin is protected by a waxy substance called vernix. Some of this substance may still be on the child’s skin at birth at which time it will be quickly absorbed. The child practices breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid into developing lungs.
Prostaglandin Chemical Abortion
This form of abortion uses chemicals developed by the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Co. which cause the uterus to contract intensely, pushing out the developing baby. The contractions are more violent than normal, natural contractions, so the unborn baby is frequently killed by them — some have even been decapitated. Many, however, have also been born alive.
Hysterectomy or Caesarean Section
Used mainly in the last three months of pregnancy, the womb is entered by surgery through the wall of the abdomen. The technique is similar to a Caesarean delivery, except that the umbilical cord is usually cut while the baby is still in the womb, thus cutting off his oxygen supply and causing him to suffocate. Sometimes the baby is removed alive and simply left in a corner to die of neglect or exposure.
Anyways, for those of you who thought I was too extreme or well off the mark then please correct me. Actually…I like being extreme but I dislike being extremely wrong. Still…that’s not the issue here. The issue here is abortion and what I personally think about it. I think that once a certain point in time is reached then you shouldn’t consider abortion anymore but you should begin to consider adoption if you are unable to keep the child. As you all saw, regardless of my being wrong or right, some of these methods are just cruel and in reading I found that there are much worse methods out there. I also think that in some extreme cases like when a person is under a reasonable age to have kids then they shouldn’t be forced to, regardless of religious beliefs or whatever the case may be. A decent age for keeping a child in my opinion is about 16, it’s not a good age mind you but it’s a mature enough age to be able to understand the up and up of whats going on. As for the others who just ‘aren’t ready for kids’ and have an accident happen…finish it early, otherwise why the hell were you two having sex? You know the risks…well I hope you do. If you’re going to do something like that then know that you have to be willing to accept the consequences. As a man I know that even if I don’t want kids I’ll say so but at the end of the day if it has to happen then so be it.
This shit is getting long, keep us entertained!
