Fid, congrats on the grand baby.

Star I do have black and white thinking on this issue. The only time I think I get iffy is when it is clear the baby will die regardless and medical intervention will save the mother. Like a tubal pregnancy. I remember the conversation with my mother when I was a teen and a relative had a tubal pregnancy....I asked how all that went down when they rushed her to surgery....mom said the only outcome was the baby would die...and in the process might kill the mother.

But those situations are not what the normal abortion is about.

I don't do politics....and ultimately that is what this discussion is about....whether or Not to continue allowing legal abortions.

Fiddler,

My first grandchild is ten weeks old; it's so much fun! Enjoy.

Fid,

Mazel tov, enjoy the new role!

Btw, tracking with mine has been a source of hilarity as well as a good tool for getting to know mine better at the different stages. Can't wait to hear your stories.... maybe a thread could be started.... Tracking: The Next Generation grin

So very happy for you and your family, Fiddler! Enjoy!

Thank you LW! I have witnessed tracking with children and it is amazing. I wish I had known it when mine were little. As it is, both my son and his wife have learned it, so the little one will grow up with it.

Great news on the grandchild!

SFB


Finding an ethical way to deal with pain, fear, disappointment etc..is part of the experience of becoming a stronger person...one who is driven by compassion instead of compulsion...ie I have a legitimate reason to be stressed out right now...however, my response to it will determine how others percieve me, and myself.

Thank you all - it's a new experience, and one that results in much more sleep for us, compared to the first round! Speaking of karma, our grandson's dad was the one who kept me up at night, and now he's experiencing it himself.

Cat, that's exciting news about your daughter!
