Quick and dirty thoughts on Health Canada approving medical abortion drugs that can be taken up to seven weeks gestation:
- it leaves women very alone (no doctor, no human contact) at their most vulnerable
- the period in which the woman suffers alone is protracted, ie. 48-72 hours
- pro-choicers should be condemned for their hypocrisy, proclaiming this to be “safe.” All drugs are dangerous in their own way and the people who will suffer most on this are the young, teenagers, the ill-informed, who will take and TELL NO ONE
- women died in the trials
- the approval timing smells political to me. What rules did Health Canada follow?
At least doctors don’t have to piece together body parts in dishes after the fact, counting the human remains to ensure they are all out. Alternatively, packing them up and sending them for research. Instead, women will be traumatized by watching this in their toilets.
If you could see inside your womb, you’d spot eyelid folds partially covering her peepers, which already have some color, as well as the tip of her nose and tiny veins beneath parchment-thin skin. Both hemispheres of your baby’s brain are growing, and her liver is churning out red blood cells until her bone marrow forms and takes over this role. She also has an appendix and a pancreas, which will eventually produce the hormone insulin to aid in digestion. A loop in your baby’s growing intestines is bulging into her umbilical cord, which now has distinct blood vessels to carry oxygen and nutrients to and from her tiny body.
Which looks like the picture below. Yes, still alien-like but developing. What a world. Wanted, unwanted, the substance of the matter at hand never changes.by
