Hey, you're the one who completely failed to provide the evidence I asked for but keep insisting it's really happening.
There are multiple things at play here, and I really have spent enough energy on this with you, and this crowd. You have demonstrated time and time again you are not open to even the discussion of how morally reprehensible this is, and demand empirical data (even when I have demonstrated problems with reporting) before you will even consider it. Which really is amusing when I think back to how passionate you were about Julie Swetnick and Ford's allegations around Kavanaugh, despite there being not a shred of evidence - and even some to the contrary. There are multiple examples of this, but this one clearly rings in my mind. I have seen this absolute stubbornness before in a lot of people, and frankly, it's my fault for carrying on because it's always the same.
It's there, cerebus. I have shown that women have late term abortions for reasons other than medical reasons (i.e. financial). It has been proven that children are born alive after botched abortions. Yes, it is rare, but if you look at the statistics, there are most likely a few hundred of these cases a year across the USA (yes - which is statically miniscule compared to the amount of abortions happening every year).
You, and others like you, have decided that babies (21 weeks and older) born after botched abortions are not viable. We cannot determine statistics of survival unless we force medical professionals to care for these infants. You are also ignoring accounts of people who are living today who have survived such horrors. Not only that, you have seemingly shrugged off the absolute stomach churning reality of what happens to these infants after the botched abortion. Even the reality that some babies being dismembered alive just seems to roll off the backs of those so staunchly pro-choice.
It really comes down to offering life saving treatment based on the probability of survival. I hope one day if you or one of your family members is not left to die, in agony, because someone has decided the probability of survival is too low.
I am to limiting my responses after this post because speaking to you and your progressive mates on this makes me feel like I am looking into the abyss.
