    Should doing things that harm a fetus but only slightly harm you, like drinking, taking OTC drugs or eating junk food when pregnant be considered child abuse?

    I think it is, mothers who's children are born with addictions have their children taken away.

    If you plan on keeping and giving birth to that fetus, yes.

    What if you're not entirely aware that you are pregnant?

    if you miss a period go to the doctor.


    another question along these lines if you see pregnant woman smoking drinking ect what do you do? you say something to her? call the police? i think this should be a crime

    What if you're not regular?

    What if you're super-lean, or have hyper-androgenism?

    Or if you do anything to harm the fetus before your missed period?

    M*W: If you don't plan on keeping and giving birth that that fetus, then it should be removed from you at the earliest possible stage (6 weeks gestation). Go to an abortion doctor as soon as you find out you are pregnant.

    Roe vs. Wade would have to be overturned, wouldn't it?

    can you explain to me what in the hell you are trying to say here? i am sorry, but i am completely stupified by the rationale used in this statement, and to justify abortion at whatever stage this imaginary arbitrary line is drawn.

    M*W: If a woman decides she doesn't want to continue with the pregnancy, the earlier she makes that decision, the better it is for her physically. The procedure is less physically traumatic for the woman the earlier gestation the procedure is performed. To do an abortion earlier than six weeks gestation, the embryo can be missed, and the woman would therefore need to undergo another procedure. No telling how the fetus would be damaged should it be brought to term (if it even survived). That is not to say she is less emotionally traumatized at that early or at any stage or ever, for that matter. Medically speaking, the earlier the gestation (smaller conceptus) at or after 6 weeks is best. Then there is the morning after pill.

    to create a life, and to extinguish it.

    ok, that makes sense. your concern lies primarily with the mother, not the child.

    i had an abortion at 6 weeks, and it was extremely traumatic for me, much to my surprise. i can't say that it would have been any more traumatic for me if the child was older than that. it doesn't seem like it would have made any difference.

    I have a body fat percentage of 16%. I eat plenty.

    Why the fuck should I take something to make it regular? I'm not a baby machine.
