Giving Her Publicity, Like She wants

I can't even articulate my feelings for this story - but I wanted to share it.

I read about this yesterday and am still shuddering a little, as well as mourning the loss of her baby. The death threats to her are a smidge overboard, no?

I can understand that people disagree with her but some people are going so extreme. They are mad because she killed her unborn child but they are threatening to kill her - irony much?

Mel @ stirrup queens had a post about this and much discussion ensued...

It is hard to agree with her decision as an infertile going through treatments - but I can see her side. Her reasoning was to inform people, much like many infertility bloggers blog to get the information out there.

Yes Maresi, The death threats are definately overboard. The whole thing seems a bit over the top. I have so many unexplainable contradicting feelings about this.

I don't know. I guess I feel that she has the right to make that decision, if she feels that it is in her family's best interest. But the whole thing gives me a funny feeling.

Well, as horrible as it is-at least a child won't suffer as being unwanted and with a mother who may very well have issues.
It's weird being IF and pro-choice-and even weirder that I really wasn't PC until I prosecuted-and realized that there is something to the stat that suggests unwanted children contribute to higher crime rates.
Sick and sad-but unfortunately true-at least in my experience.

I don't see how she could have done this without thinking about the reactions she would receive. You can't put yourself out there that publicly and then ask for privacy. Come on!

Wowwy wow...but I wanted to say that I hope the RSV bug goes away for good...get better little ones! (My word verification was vulvas...how weird, LOL!)

Oh my word. I hadn't heard about this.

I don't really care about why she had her abortion. What I HATE is that she compared it a miscarriage. . .that just irritates me beyond what I can say.

And I have to respectfully disagree with why she chose to publicize this (and in the manner in which she did publicize it). She obviously wanted and is enjoying the media attention. Look how she continues to seek it and perpetuate. Educating women about the process of abortion may be one thing, but making light of it is something else entirely.
