Not your body, lady, when you kill a baby. Kudos to Kay Ivey, Alabama Gov.
House Bill 314, “Human Life Protection Act” Comes to Life in Alabama to Save Babies. Thank you
The Alabama Bill 314 is a very good piece of legislation under circumstances in which female constituents are confused about their right to kill a baby in their body. Women have the right to contraception and the right to choose responsibly when and if to have coitus and when and if to have a family. Women do not have the right to use abortion as a form of birth control. They may not kill babies.
It is a sad day when FPMag writers and medical practitioners must agree a legislator is justified in creating laws to interfere with the patient / doctor relationship but the dialogue has now come to include doctors who malpractice and patient ignorance that is not addressed.
The photo and its story. This picture is not about abortion. It’s about another woman who really makes a difference. We searched through hundreds and found that the big story about Kay Ivey is that she is bold and brave and loved by the people of Alabama. Her statement below says it all. Governor Kay Ivey participated in the Alabama Emergency Management Agency’s routine hurricane exercise Tuesday, 14 May 2019 in Clanton, Alabama USA. This year’s exercise is for “Hurricane Yvonne” – a Category 4, directed at Alabama’s Gulf Coast. During her visit to AEMA, she will also briefly visit with emergency management staff and make a few remarks during a press conference.
Women’s Choices do not include using abortion as a form of birth control.
Patients need to learn about wise choices for coitus and other pleasures of life that have huge responsibilities attached. The first stop is the doctor’s office to learn generally what if any risks preclude the patient from having children.
Shift your value for human life backwards in time to when lives mattered. The current swing toward impunity for random and mass killing must be checked because it has reached the children.
Babies’ lives are now endangered by immoral and unhealthy attitudes. Americans have become far too desensitized to killing. In fact North Americans are complicit in the murders of millions in the past twenty years. It’s getting worse.
North American ships, missiles, rockets, bombs and death are everywhere and threatening everyone; stealing babies from mom’s arms and dropping bombs on babies has led to the wide open narrative of dismemberment late-term abortions.
The photo and its story: In a nation which bombs school busses filled with children, public lessons are needed about the value of human life. Plaintiffs in a class legal action against the USA contend that Defendant, United States of America, was entered into a contract with other defendants to act as a whole to kill civilians by military means for the purpose of terrorizing the Yemeni people into submission to governance by the defendants. Trial jurisdiction of this cause of action may be set by the plaintiff. The plaintiff is a class of Yemeni people. The plaintiff claims damages in the amount of $1,227,430.00 for each child killed on 9 August at the Dahyan Market and no less than $50,000 up to $950,000 to any person in Sa’dah Governorate of Yemen who joins the class and claims remedy.
Choosing coitus and contraception is a woman’s business and must be her choice.
No doctor should condone abortion as a form of birth control. Any doctor that kills a baby is not a doctor and should be imprisoned. Alabama law now provides that conclusion. Not just Alabama holds doctors accountable for abuse of the induced abortion procedure but many US States are ahead of Alabama.
Recent narratives in the United States about dismemberment abortions and late term abortions have compelled rational thinking legislators to take action against a growing willingness to devalue the lives of children. If you don’t want to have a baby, don’t have coitus.
Once a post-coitus fertilized egg has implanted in a woman’s uterus, there is growing possibility she will be having a baby. That is not a certainty (Cite from : Gavin E. Jarvis Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, CB2 3EG, UK).
That is also something that can be controlled by a woman with late-use contraception to make certain implantation does not happen.
Killing Babies is not a choice. Which aspects of the body that women control is not always a choice because the body has much autonomous control. Maintain good health is a choice women can avail.
For natural reasons, most zygotes do not continue to implantation. That is because of autonomous choices the body makes.
Pregnancy has many factors opposed and is quite a miracle of the human body. But when factors deem a pregnancy will not have a good outcome, either the body or the patient and doctor must stop the pregnancy from going forward even before conception. Please read the chart of illnesses that may contraindicate pregnancy.
Regardless, “It is less clear as to when humans are recognized as people, persons, or beings with rights that are protected by legislation.” (John Janez Miklavcic – Paul Flaman, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada. Read if you wish -> US National Library of Medicine)
In any case of rape, says Sharon Santiago of The RINJ Foundation, “I fear that we are probably assailing a zygote and preventing in a small percentage of cases, an incipient human life from continuing. Not every female is a candidate for pregnancy. Illness and other issues must be evaluated. For the health of the patient and baby we must evaluate whuch lives can be saved. In cases of rape the probability of a woman having a healthy baby are lowered by many factors. The presence of HIV and other sexualy transmitted disease and infection must be determined as quickly as possible. Sometimes when we ask a woman or child if they wish to prevent implantation pharmacologically, just the reference to pregnancy induces a level of hysteria. Mental health is a strong consideration at this point when normal contraceptives would be doing their work, preventing implantation.”
If the body detects at this stage a chromosome mismatch or because of a change in the health of the body, the implantation is rejected and the mother may not even know there has been a miscarriage.
Normally the implantation produces a protein called chorionic gonadotrophin which signals an end to menstruation. This is another thing women do not control in their bodies.
This makes the decision for coitus, paramount. This is when a woman decides what shall happen to her body. There was however a time before. Contraception
“It is widely accepted that natural human embryo mortality is high, particularly during the first weeks after fertilisation, with total prenatal losses of 70% and higher frequently claimed,” claims a medical study on “Early embryo mortality in natural human reproduction: What the data say“.
When a woman is raped, “We use various pharmacological solutions to prevent that embedding to take place, regardless of what we know of the patient’s (birth control) contraceptive methods,” says Doctor Buni, a RINJ Foundation medical practitioner working in a war zone.
“We are determined to make certain that rape does not result in a pregnancy, but if the patient has waited too long, we can then wait more time because after 32 weeks, we have a baby and a mom. We can save the baby. We have surgically removed a baby from a raped child and because we had incubation and reliable power we saved the baby and the girl mom. We don’t have that now. When a case comes in now I can’t help but cry remembering holding that baby and how happy the baby’s grandmother was to adopt the baby. Sometimes horrible things work out because they are solved by loving, caring people.
“But little children cannot have babies naturally hence in the cases of incest and child rape we must act to save the child’s life by doing whatever we must do. We save the lives we can save,” the doctor added.
“No politician is going to be in the examination room with me and my patient, not in any manner. I will do what needs to be done to save the lives I can save. I am not going to cause or a llow a child to die from a rape induced pregnancy. I will fight for the safety of women and children to my last breath.”
Governor Kay Ivey + Alabama Legislature Statement on Alabama Human Life Protection Act
MONTGOMERY Alabama USA – Governor Kay Ivey on Wednesday signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, after both houses of the Alabama Legislature passed HB314.Upon signing the bill, Governor Ivey released the following statement:
“Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the Legislature. To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.
To all Alabamians, I assure you that we will continue to follow the rule of law.
In all meaningful respects, this bill closely resembles an abortionban that has been a part of Alabama law for well over 100 years. As today’s bill itself recognizes, that longstanding abortion law has been rendered “unenforceable as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade.”
No matter one’s personal view on abortion, we can all recognize that, at least for the short term, this bill may similarly be unenforceable. As citizens of this great country, we must always respect the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court even when we disagree with their decisions. Many Americans, myself included, disagreed when Roe v. Wade was handed down in 1973. The sponsors of this bill believe that it is time, once again, for the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit this important matter, and they believe this act may bring about the best opportunity for this to occur.
I want to commend the bill sponsors, Rep. Terri Collins and Sen. Clyde Chambliss, for their strong leadership on this important issue.
For the remainder of this session, I now urge all members of the Alabama Legislature to continue seeking the best ways possible to foster a better Alabama in all regards, from education to public safety. We must give every person the best chance for a quality life and a promising future.”
Glossary of Key Reproductive Terms
1. Ovum: A female gamete, also known as an egg or oocyte. Ova ( pl) are produced by the ovaries of the woman.
2. Spermatozoon: A male gamete. Sperm (or spermatozoa, pl) are produced in the testes of the man.
3. Ovulation: The release of an ovum from the ovary. In humans, ovulation usually involves the release of a single egg in each menstrual cycle.
4. Fallopian tube: A narrow tubular extension of the uterus, which opens out next to the ovary. It is also called the oviduct. Following ovulation, the ovum passes into the opening of the Fallopian tube and travels towards the uterus.
5. Coitus: An act of sexual intercourse between a man and woman, usually resulting in the deposition of sperm within the reproductive tract of the woman.
6. Menstrual cycle: An interval of approximately 28 days, which commences with the onset of menstruation. Ovulation occurs mid-way though a menstrual cycle, approximately 14 days before the onset of the next cycle.
7. Amenorrhoea: The absence of menstruation. A missed menstrual period is often the first observable sign that pregnancy has commenced, although there are many other causes.
8. Fertile period: The time in a woman’s menstrual cycle during which coitus may result in pregnancy. This period probably varies considerably between women. Coitus up to 6 days prior to and 1 day after ovulation may result in pregnancy although the most fertile days are the day of ovulation and the 2 days beforehand 40.
9. Fertilization: The fusion of a spermatozoon and an ovum, which usually takes place in the fallopian tube up to 24 hours after ovulation.
10. Conception: A biologically imprecise term meaning either ‘the coming into existence of a new human being’ or ‘the beginning of a pregnancy’. It is often used synonymously with fertilisation but may also refer to implantation.
11. Embryo: A newly fertilised ovum until the eighth week of development.
12. Zygote: The newly fertilised ovum: a one-cell embryo.
13. Blastocyst: An embryo approximately 5-6 days after fertilisation.
14. Implantation: The biological process that begins when a blastocyst attaches to the lining of the uterus approximately 6–7 days after fertilisation. The embryo subsequently becomes embedded within the uterine lining.
15. Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG): A protein produced by the embryo. It signals to the mother that an embryo is present and prevents menstruation and the loss of the embryo. Elevated levels of hCG can be detected in the serum or urine of a woman from around the time of implantation.
16. Fecundability: A measure of reproductive potential. It is the probability of becoming pregnant in a single menstrual cycle. Fecundity is often used to mean the probability of achieving a live birth in a single cycle. A fecund cycle is one in which fertilisation occurs.
17. Pregnancy: The condition of a woman harbouring an embryo, fetus or unborn child. When pregnancy begins is a matter of some confusion 7 ( Figure 1). Pregnancy may be considered to commence with fertilisation and lasts approximately 38 weeks. Clinicians often time the onset of pregnancy from day 1 of the last menstrual cycle, 2 weeks before fertilisation, and refer to subsequent time as a period of gestation. On this account, pregnancy or gestation lasts approximately 40 weeks. Some scientists and legal judgements define pregnancy as beginning with implantation, one week after fertilisation. This definition is of particular utility in the context of IVF treatment where evidence of implantation is the earliest sign that a transferred embryo has developed normally and that fertility treatment has, up to that point, been successful. For some women, the start of a pregnancy may be noted with the first missed menstrual period, approximately 2 weeks after fertilisation, or a positive pregnancy test.
18. Miscarriage: The premature termination of a pregnancy leading to loss of a developing embryo or fetus. Embryo loss may occur before a woman knows she is pregnant. Miscarriage late in pregnancy is often called abortion, with a cut-off of approximately 20 weeks gestation used to distinguish between miscarriage and abortion.
19. Early Pregnancy Loss: This usually refers to the loss of an embryo very early in pregnancy, even before a clinical diagnosis is made, when a woman would not be aware of the pregnancy. Such losses are also called occult, because they are hidden, or biochemical, because they can only be identified by detecting hCG. Pregnancy loss shortly after a clinical diagnosis may also be described as early.
Illness that can threaten a pregnancy.
|Asthma||Poorly controlled asthma may increase risk of preeclampsia, poor weight gain in the fetus, preterm birth, cesarean birth, and other complications. If pregnant women stop using asthma medicine, even mild asthma can become severe.|
|Depression||Depression that persists during pregnancy can make it hard for a woman to care for herself and her unborn baby. Having depression before pregnancy also is a risk factor for postpartum depression.|
|Diabetes||High blood glucose (sugar) levels during pregnancy can harm the fetus and worsen a woman’s long-term diabetes complications. Doctors advise getting diabetes under control at least three to six months before trying to conceive.|
|Eating disorders||Body image changes during pregnancy can cause eating disorders to worsen. Eating disorders are linked to many pregnancy complications, including birth defects and premature birth. Women with eating disorders also have higher rates of postpartum depression.|
|Epilepsy and other seizure disorders||Seizures during pregnancy can harm the fetus, and increase the risk of miscarriage or stillbirth. But using medicine to control seizures might cause birth defects. For most pregnant women with epilepsy, using medicine poses less risk to their own health and the health of their babies than stopping medicine.|
|High blood pressure||Having chronic high blood pressure puts a pregnant woman and her baby at risk for problems. Women with high blood pressure have a higher risk of preeclampsiaand placental abruption (when the placenta separates from the wall of the uterus). The likelihood of preterm birth and low birth weight also is higher.|
|HIV||HIV can be passed from a woman to her baby during pregnancy or delivery. Yet this risk is less than 1 percent if a woman takes certain HIV medicines during pregnancy. Women who have HIV and want to become pregnant should talk to their doctors before trying to conceive. Good prenatal care will help protect a woman’s baby from HIV and keep her healthy.|
|Migraine||Migraine symptoms tend to improve during pregnancy. Some women have no migraine attacks during pregnancy. Certain medicines commonly used to treat headaches should not be used during pregnancy. A woman who has severe headaches should speak to her doctor about ways to relieve symptoms safely.|
|Overweight and Obesity||Recent studies suggest that the heavier a woman is before she becomes pregnant, the greater her risk of a range of pregnancy complications, including preeclampsia and preterm delivery. Overweight and obese women who lose weight before pregnancy are likely to have healthier pregnancies.|
|Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)||Some STIs can cause early labor, a woman’s water to break too early, and infection in the uterus after birth. Some STIs also can be passed from a woman to her baby during pregnancy or delivery. Some ways STIs can harm the baby include: low birth weight, dangerous infections, brain damage, blindness, deafness, liver problems, or stillbirth.|
|Thyroid disease||Uncontrolled hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) can be dangerous to the mother and cause health problems such as heart failure and poor weight gain in the fetus. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) also threatens the mother’s health and can cause birth defects.|
|Uterine fibroids||Uterine fibroids are not uncommon, but few cause symptoms that require treatment. Uterine fibroids rarely cause miscarriage. Sometimes, fibroids can cause preterm or breech birth. Cesarean delivery may be needed if a fibroid blocks the birth canal.|
The Photo and its story: North America has come to devalue children. Migrant child-confiscation, bombing school busses, and dismemberment abortion tell a story of a nation that does not value its babies.
