Yes they would clinics do it every day!

I don't recommend responding to Aus Blog. It seems to be a spam bot, just programmed with an automatic message similar to the content of the victim blog. Its not only shown up at pro-chioce blogs, but anti-abortion ones as well. And it's certainly not unheard of spammers targeting blogs, unfortuantly. The best approach is probably to ignore and don't let a bot get you all riled up ;)

By the way, it should be clear that nobody_in_particular is the troll also known as Aus Blog, with a new name -- he/she can't even spell the word "staggering" correctly. It's essentially the same post on three forums. (And the insinuation about rich abortion doctors is a) factually wrong -- abortion clinics' fees have dropped relative to the cost of inflation; b) disengenous, since apparently abortion doctors are held to different salary standards than sports medicine docs, obstetricians, podiatrists, etc; and c)beside the point -- abortion is a medical procedure. If abortion docs all lived like paupers and every single one died penniless, would that eliminate your supposedly moral objections?

But on second thought, let me not keep feeding the troll.

If an abortion costs around $468.00.

How much money is made from abortions each year in America alone?

1.3 million x $468.00 = 608.4 MILLION DOLLARS.

SOMEONE IS GETTING VERY RICH FROM ALL THIS.

Please contact me. I'm hosting a bloggers conference call with Lynn Paltrow of Nat'l Advocates for Pregnant Women next week and would like to invite you both to join. Thanks!

A suggestion to the blog owner: this is the third pro-choice website I've seen aus_blog troll in the last few weeks with exactly the same posts - same statistics, same worn arguments, same blithering about implants as a magical solution.

Even if you don't normally moderate, I think you'd be justified in putting his IP into moderation in this case. He's not worth anyone's time to engage.

Gee - if you could only get her to hold still.....

Aus blog, in this case it's nothing to do with contraception or the lack thereof. As far as one can tell, she wanted and still wants the pregnancy. It's her parents who don't.

Now, not only would no clinic have taken such a case, but no unscrupulous back-yard abortionist neither: for to perform one would require forcibly restraining an actively-struggling person which is a) difficult, b) distressing to all concerned, c) makes carrying out such a procedure very difficult to do, never mind do well, d) is likely to go very wrong and e) attract unwelcome attention to the practitioner. It's not worth even a lot of money. Regardless of the laws on abortion, that is grievious bodily harm. Nothing less.

The police didn't save her from an abortion. What they may have well saved her from though is death: it's not unheard of -- though extreme -- for parents to kill children they perceive as being completely uncontrollable. And in a situation that fraught, given that the parents had a gun along (stupid, stupid thing to do) it could have escalated into an utter tragedy.

Over 3,500 terminations per day, 1.3 MILLION per year in the United States alone.
50 or 60 MILLION per year World Wide.

I am a pro-lifer who has no religious convictions at all . I didn't need the fear of god or anything else to come to my decision, just a good sence of what is right and wrong.
You see we were all once a fetus. Is it beyond the realm of possibilities that when your mother first learned she was carrying you, she may have considered her options? What if she had decided to terminate? Would that have been OK?
You would not exist, if you have children they would not exist, and your (husband or wife) would be married to someone else. You would have been deprived of all your experiences and memories. In this day and age with terminations being so readily available and so many being carried out, if you make it to full term
you can consider yourself lucky. Lucky you had a mother that made the choice of life for you. Don't you think they all deserve the same basic human right, LIFE?
I'm all for contraception, prevention is certainly better than termination.
Did you know you can get an implant that is safe, 99.9% effective, and lasts for three years? Just think girls not even a show for three years, wouldn't that be great? I think too many people rely too heavily on the last option (abortion), I think if abortions weren't so readily available people would manage their reproductive system far better resulting in a fraction of the number of unwanted pregnancies.
World wide there are over 50 MILLION aborted pregnancies each year. In America 3,500 terminations carried out every day, that's over 1.3 million every year, 50% of all cases CLAIMED that birth control had been used, 48% admitted they took no precaution, and 2% had a medical reason. That's a stagering 98% could have been prevented had an effective birth control been used. Don't get me wrong, I suspect the percentages in Australia would be much the same.
Just a lot of unnessessary killing.
I am convinced that in the not too distant future, people will look back at many of the practices of today with disbelief and horror.

DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN GET AN IMPLANT (in arm) THAT IS - SAFE - 99.9% EFFECTIVE AND LASTS FOR THREE YEARS?

aus blog

I'm pro-life always have been. World estimations of the number of terminations carried out each year is anywhere between 20 and 88 million.
3,500 per day / 1.3 million per year in America alone. 50% of that 1.3 million CLAIMED failed birth control was to blame. A further 48% had failed to use any birth control at all. That leaves 2%that had medical reasons. That means a stagering 98% may have been avoided had an effective birth control been used.

At the point of conception is when life began for you. This was the start of your existance. Your own personal big bang. Three weeks after conception heart started to beat. First brain waves recorded at six weeks after conception. Seen sucking thumb at seven weeks after conception.

I agree, a clinic wouldn't do it. That doesn't mean they wouldn't get one for her, though. Not all people who know how to do abortions are ethical.
