You've got to be a special kind of ass to send an E-card like that
2007-03-14 12:08:42 PM  
I think this is dumb.

It's painful enough... why send a reminder?

/going through this right now
//if someone sent me one of these E-Cards, I would MAIM them
2007-03-14 12:09:20 PM  
Ewwww. I can't imagine finding this tasteful or comforting.

/Keep your cards off my body!

I would have chose 'SICK', but oh well . . .

I RTFA and was sorely disappointed that this wasn't a thread about the Beatles. Stupid misleading headlines...

"Another provides encouragement for someone who 'did the right thing.'"

No, the right thing would be to own up to your mistakes and care for the child instead of killing it.

Don't want to get pregenant? Wear a condom, take the pill, get the patch, or just don't do it.

This thread is going to be really, really tasteless.

Dear (name),

Hope Slaughtering Your Baby Went Well!

Try to stop being such a whore now, k?

LOL, hahaha, take care,

Thanks for getting rid of me. I hate poor people.

Love, your fetus.

Riche, I love Bleach, thanks for making me less disgruntled this morning.

Thanks, Rev. Falwell.

Some women get raped, by the way, in case you haven't heard...though I'm sure you'll find a way to blame them for it.
2007-03-14 12:13:45 PM  
why not send an e-card? why would you feel bad about something that wasn't wrong or amoral?

2007-03-14 12:14:30 PM  
oh gawd... this is going to be an ugly thread.

Abortion is sometimes the only possible answer. Like if you're on accutane. and you aren't ALLOWED to keep the baby on doctors orders.

It's not immoral to have a miscarriage, lose a job, or have one of your kids commit suicide, but I still wouldn't send someone a card commemorating the occasion. but that's just me.
2007-03-14 12:17:32 PM  

ha ha ha! awesome!

If I was the father of the aborted child, I'd send her that ecard and a dozen black roses. It'd be cute.
2007-03-14 12:19:10 PM  
There are just certain occasions that should never have an e-card attached to them. This is one of them.

/"Sorry to hear about the herpes" e-card also inappropriate.
2007-03-14 12:19:16 PM  
You make an incredible point mm8b. Accutane can really mess up the person thats taking it.. and destory a developing fetus.

I took accutane for awhile and that was probably the worst time of my life.
2007-03-14 12:19:43 PM  
quite possible the most revolting article I've ever read...
2007-03-14 12:19:47 PM  
ThatsnotwhatIsaid: it's not immoral to have a miscarriage, lose a job, or have one of your kids commit suicide

People do not choose to have a miscarriage, lose a job or have their kids commit suicide.

Submitter's poem doesn't scan right. Try adding a one-syllable modifier before bikini. Like "red."

You know, for once in my life, I'm going to assume the best in people.

I'm going to assume that there are plenty of people who consider themselves republicans and conservatives out there who are open-minded and understanding enough to realize that just because we liberals condone abortion, that's not the same as saying we encourage or like it.

Heck, I'll go so far as to assume that they're even SYMPATHETIC enough to realize that we view abortion in much the same way that they view things like guns and war; We don't think they're a good thing, in fact we think they're a very sad and terrible thing, but we're realistic enough to realize that life is complicated, and that we're sometimes forced into situations where they prove to be a lesser and at times necessary evil.....

I hope, I hope, I hope.....
2007-03-14 12:22:38 PM  
Riche, thanks for the Bleach animation. I adore that show. *squeeee!*

I would have loved these e-cards when I was younger and crueler and had reckless irresponsible friends

What's the official Fark consensus on abortions vs. DNC's?

To my mind, an "abortion" is the termination of a pregnancy for the sake of the mother's convenience of life-style or fear of parental disapproval. A DNC is a medically necessary procedure that terminates the pregnancy for the sake of the mother's health or because the fetus is inviable (it happens).
2007-03-14 12:27:57 PM  
I was aborted as a fetus so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies....
2007-03-14 12:28:06 PM  
If you're going to send a card like this, you need the right amount of tastelessness so the person knows you aren't being TOO serious. You know, like:

Dear Friend,

It was probably going to be retarded, anyway.



/I keed!
2007-03-14 12:29:07 PM  
WTF is a "half-birthday?"

//from the article
///Finally a nice safe post!
2007-03-14 12:29:18 PM  

Yup. But garunteed there'l be someone here that says "Don't matter! Boo you whore! You're getting an abortion! You're going to hell!"

You know, I did this essay in my bio-medical ethics class at uni, about how the fetus deosnt have cognition before the 2nd trimester.

You kill cows. you have no problem with that.
You abort kittens when your cat is pregnant, you have no problem with that.
whats the difference?

Personally, aborting something when it doesn't even have to level of cognition that a cow does isn't, IMHO a hugely immoral thing. Early in the pregnancy, it's not immoral. Once it has a brain thats developed enough to feel, I think it's not right.

Face it, people. For a little while, it isn't a person it's a mass of flesh. Killing it before it grows more is the responsible thing to do.

And sometimes, it's the right choice.
Sometimes, as in rape, BC failure, or because you're taking certain med's, it's the right choice.

/ready for the barrage of hate

criticalnegation: "because you're too uneducated to tell the difference"

This has been all over every news outlet this morning, they were even talking about it on the radio. I think the Fox News link is just a coincidence.

Just's an AP story.

What's the point of an abortion e-card? How are you supposed to give her whiskey and cigarettes through email?
2007-03-14 12:32:24 PM  
You abort kittens when your cat is pregnant, you have no problem with that.


Who does this? Is this common? Have I been out of the loop on this one? I thought people just let their cat have the kittens and then gave them away. Do people really get cat abortions? That just seems creepy and unnecessary.

ThatsnotwhatIsaid: it's not immoral to have a miscarriage, lose a job, or have one of your kids commit suicide

People do not choose to have a miscarriage, lose a job or have their kids commit suicide.

i wasn't saying it's the same thing. I'm saying that even if you support the right to an abortion, you might not think it's in good taste to send a card. maybe a better example is that i don't think it's immoral to felate my boyfriend, but I wouldn't do it at a dinner party attended by my parents, my boss and my minister, and have them fill out score cards.

just because you don't think something is immoral, doesn't mean you want to talk about it, put it on display, or have people comment on it.
2007-03-14 12:33:19 PM  
As long as Congressmen congress with female congressional interns, abortion will be legal.

2007-03-14 12:33:56 PM  
As for the greeting card thing, I'm not sure that's a good idea.

I mean, if you're not close enough to the woman to offer your comfort and support in person then chances are you're not really in a position to offer any input in the first place.
2007-03-14 12:34:45 PM  
mm8b You kill cows. you have no problem with that.

You can't exactly compare humans to other animals and expect a rational argument. We kill chimpanzee's and they have been shown to have the cognitive ability of a three year old. So, can we abort lives until the age of three? See it doesn't work.

You abort kittens when your cat is pregnant, you have no problem with that.

Really? I've never heard of this before. I thought you were screwed if you didn't have your cat spayed and it got pregnant.

/ who doesn't spay their cat?

Normally, I don't care about abortion except when it's used as a form of birth control because someone's got a lack of self control, or just a general lack of caring (IE: if she was raped, fine, kill the kid, if you're getting it because you had unprotected sex and thought you'd be ok, then you should DIAF).

But seriously, Zolividor that made me burst out laughing and I'm not sure how to explain that to the rest of the office that I'm laughing at abortion jokes.
