29 year old woman dies trying to have a 33 week pregnancy aborted

While these partial birth abortions are really sick, a 33 week aborted pregnancy is extremely sad. To kill a child that was alive and is only legal because it's partially still in the birth canal is totally outrageous. There is no liberty for women in this, there are only rights lost.

So very sad

She died post-partum due to complications that originated with the abortion.

Sos sad all the way around. I can see how both sides would use this incident to support their positions (pro-life: stop abortions, promote adoption. Pro-choice: insure women who had abortions get proper post-partum care).

I'm very pro-life. I am not happy or satisfied at all that this woman died as well as her child.

A few thoughts

Many people say "Only have the children you can afford" and I have one nephew who cost his cement truck driving dad and print shop working mother over a million dollars before he was 6 months old.
What law would have made any of this any better? If you outlaw abortion, you may as well do away with prenatal testing. It is for severe deformity that the service is offered.
If the deformity were severe enough to endanger the mother, how would you feel about it?
Every pregnancy risks the life of the mother. Sometimes we forget that.
Mother and baby could have died in childbirth. That happened to a man I went to church with when I was a kid, left him to raise the other kids alone. It was incredibly sad.
I don't have the answer, that is why I say leave these decisions between the woman and her Creator. Whatever the ultimate truth is, she knows now, I still don't. I just know that prohibition of stuff makes them more profitable in a black market, it does not make them go away.
May the father find peace with his fate, he still does not know either.

Dangit fishy

You can't say that. "Every pregnancy risks the life of the mother." That is absolutely untrue. It makes you sound like a propagandist even though I don't think you are because we agree on so much.

You need to understand biology

Childbirth is dangerous, a woman can hemorrhage and bleed out.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

You are talking about the exception to the rule

The biggest danger to a woman during child birth is the doctor who is "treating" her or taking it by force because he/she says the due date is past. Or the nurse who lays across the mother's stomach to "help" push. Women would be much better off and there would be much less trauma and or damage to the child and mother with a good midwife instead of the over priced hurry up medical establishment.

Your statement is fear mongering and only gives credence to the expensive cost and rhetoric of the medical establishment. Women are designed to have babies. The danger is in the ignorance and fear that is perpetuated by the medical establishment.

Cyril's picture

This is insane.

This is what I find the most outrageous out of the entire article:

"This tragic incident occurred the same day that another medical emergency took place at a New Mexico abortion clinic involving long-time Carhart associate Shelley Sella. At the time of that incident, a Medical Board in New Mexico was voting to clear Sella of negligence charges, related to a botched third trimester abortion using the same risky late-term abortion method employed by Carhart. This dangerous out-patient abortion process includes long periods of time where the patient is unmonitored while taking strong doses of a drug that causes unpredictable and sometimes violent contractions."

This is insane.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Informed consent?

Did the mother know how risky it was? There are risks with all surgery. My daughter had a friend whose dad went in for foot surgery - never came out. Turned out he was an undiagnosed diabetic and it killed him. But he signed the consent form, indicated he knew he might die. People don't take that seriously enough.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

It was a wanted and planned pregnancy

until they discovered fetal anomalies. Not excusing it, just adding more to the story.

Jennifer was married and a kindergarten teacher at Church Street Elementary School in White Plains, New York. Jennifer was carrying a wanted baby. At present her registry is still online. Very sad to view.

Approximately two weeks ago Jennifer learned her daughter suffered from fetal anomalies.
Jennifer, her husband, her parents, and her sister traveled to Carhart’s late-term Germantown Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic in Germantown, Maryland.

They began the abortion process on Sunday, February 3, in the afternoon, according to sidewalk counselors who maintain a constant presence at the clinic when it is open. They noted Jennifer appeared “very” late-term.

Fetal anomaly is quite vague.

Funny how this ole quote just keeps applying to things happening.

Was thinking the exact same thing....

I can't be the only one who

I can't be the only one who had to sit and figure out how many months 33 weeks goes into so I could get some kind of idea how close this was to 9 months.

That's like my friend who hasn't smoked a cigarette in 1,584 hours.

38/39 weeks is average

As Sick at That is

THIS is even worse. Abort until age 18 months? REALLY? There seems to be no end to the insanity of today's societies!



Why do people do this?

She's going to give birth to something that's either dead or alive, so it's not about avoiding birth pains. If it's about not wanting to be responsible for the baby, choose to give them up for adoption! What's the point of taking a life like this? I really do not understand. Now two lives have been destroyed.


How can a doctor who does this continue to be one?

Not only was the mother negligent, the doctor should lose his ability to practice medicine imo and quite likely face criminal charges imo.

This is totally beyond me.

I have to sit back and seriously contemplate what just happened here :(

33 weeks? um.....

all this web surfing I forget how barbaric we still are...

there is a money to be made offing babies right now... no question of morals just an observation... babies are made dead and pulled out of wombs to "fight overpopulation and relieve economic duress of women"

some say it is the way of the world others say it is wrong but no matter what way you see it there it is... life turned upside down.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.
