Cool, so no need to carry it longer. Just get it removed at 15 weeks.

The Governor and Principal Skinner were in the womb making fetuses and I saw one of the fetus and the fetus looked st me.

When I was in high school, I would joke "don't abort.them, just toss them in the woods and let them get by on their own. Natural selection."

I didn't realize they'd take me seriously.

When I was a fetus I had a job at 22 weeks and moved out after 9 months. Fetuses these days just want to lay around and have everything tube-fed to them.

24 weeks is the medically accepted point of viability if I'm not mistaken.

There have been earlier premature births but generally speaking anything before 24 weeks has less than a 50% chance of survival.

At 15 weeks, you can still see the tiny blood vessels under translucent skin.

Oh yeah.  Your child will be severely mentally impaired as its brain is still growing at 15 weeks.

Have fun with that.

FFS, not too long ago, a baby born 6 weeks early had only about a 50-50 chance of survival, and that was usually only after a month or 2 in the NICU.

I know Mississippi is lacking in a lot of science education, but no one believes the spawn of Tammy Mae and Uncle Daddy is viable after 4 months in the oven.

Is it legal to bet on whether a 15 week old fetus will live or die?

I feel like it shouldn't be, but at the same time I feel like you should get at least 25:1 odds if you take the over.

If you take medical advice from a Republican politician and not reputable doctors, you are an idiot. The only competent advice any Republican could offer is how to best fleece the rubes and violate campaign finance laws.

The difference between 22 weeks and 24 weeks is a staggering number. We're talking single digit vs +60%. I really wish Tapper would have pushed back on that, but Tapper gonna just "ya, ok" and move onto the next thing.

I will never understand why people care so much what other people do for their family planning and personal reproductive rights. For some of them it's fear of God wreaking havoc on the earth. But then these same people DGAF about contributing to climate change and mass extinction of species due to overdevelopment, which one would think should be equally egregious to a sky wizard.

The commonly accepted threshold of viability for spontaneous, non-traumatic delivery is 20 weeks and 3/7 days. Only two documented cases of these have survived to 40-week NICU discharge age without severe and chronic health problems requiring round-the-clock care.

If I have to code a gelatanous tadpole because of this son of a biatch I'll come dump the remains on his doorstep.

I just hope these apple-sized children are given comprehensive sex education and access to contraception. the last thing this country needs is a spate of 15-week-old fetuses getting pregnant. and for heaven's sake, keep them away from Matt Gaetz and Roy Moore!

The youngest we would send our team on at LeBonheur when I worked there was 21 weeks, and we were a national center of excellence for premature neonatal cases (along with RegionalONE Medical Center NICU)

"The fact is we know so much more in America today about the formation of young [fetuses] in the womb than we did when Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. And what we know now, Jake, is that we know that the heart partially formed at 15 weeks. We know that the [fetus] in the womb is practicing breathing. We know that most internal organs have started to form and we believe that child is viable outside the womb."

I didn't watch the video but I'm guessing he was saying "baby" and not "[fetus]", right?

This just means that they can be branded government-teat suckling welfare leeches at 16 weeks instead of 41 weeks.

The ridiculous thing is that the vast majority of women would prefer to have an abortion as early as possible. But they've made that harder and harder to do, so it means more are going into the second trimester, not through their own choice. Abortion is rarely an easy or happy decision, so it's really a form of abuse to make women go through a more invasive and emotionally upsetting procedure. And of course that's how they want to punish women who want to exercise their legal rights.

Fun fact! All premie baby care has roots in a Coney island side show! A doctor ran the side show with real medical staff and real premature babies to prove a point.

no, see, the fetus is only a precious and sacred life while in the uterus. immediately upon eviction it becomes a burdensome drain on society. so the government no longer cares and certainly isn't going to help some slut pay for months of NICU treatment.

I love when they do that and anti-choice billboards use pictures of adorable newborns. if it's just as much a life before birth, there should be no issue with using the correct terminology and images.

So, the GOP can quit being concerned about the well being of a child at 15 weeks then?

After the delivery the child is only a cuddle to punish "those people" for being knocked up anyway, might as well get started not caring as soon as they can.

Sounds like Mr. Moneybags here had his own uterus.

Must be nice.

I had to sublet mine with ten other fetuses just to get by.
