    Oh, wow, that’s the saddest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

    I tend to think that was actually a person against abortion making that comment for effect. If you wanted to sell baby clothes you could do it without the comment. Why would somebody buy baby clothes
    if they were in their first or second trimester of a pregnancy? Please do not construe my analysis as meaning that I am in favor of abortions. i just know that people say all kinds of things for a purpose, often pretending to be other people to advance their cause.

    Good point, but in this debauched society, it’s hard to tell.

    Total agreement here… I mean, wow, what do you say to that? All I can do is shake my head…

    You can tell what sex the baby is in the second trimester. I’m 20 weeks, and it’s a boy. And I could have my baby killed right up until the day he’s born. (Don’t worry. I won’t.) Could have been done to make a point, though. I certainly hope so! But I’ve heard some extremely callous “mothers” speaking very freely about it in this way, so I’m not quite as skeptical as you are.  Hope you’re right!

    “God ha’ pity on we.
    Bah, yeah, bah!”

    Kipling wrote those words about profligates who enlisted rather than were commissioned in India, but now, it seems to be society.

    That Ebay ad has to be sad for even pro-choice people.  Well not NARAL, but anyone who has an actual heart.

    Sad, tragic, and heart breaking. the great lie of “choice”, the only choice the Left believes in leads us to a place where moral retardation reigns.
    Those baby clothes really got to me
    I will never forget my sister and her husband in tears this past May, after my nephew Logan passed away, at only 4 months. And to think that someone would deliberately, yes knowlingly have their baby aborted. Dear God

    I’ve seen something similar elsewhere: same first image and caption, but the caption is repeated a second time, superimposed on an ultrasound image.

    God have pity, indeed.

    Sorry for your loss, Doug. I can’t imagine….

    They say Hemmingway’s favorite short story was also his shortest, only six words:  “For sale, baby shoes, never worn.”
