11w5d

Tomorrow is 11w5d. It is the day that last year’s baby died. For no reason.

I have been wondering what the pro-life movement (or to call a spade a spade, the anti-abortion movement) makes of people like me. I continue to create embryos, despite the fact that they are almost certain to die. It is not my intention to kill them, but if I know that my body has a predisposition to kill babies, then does that make me somewhat compliant in their deaths?

Obviously this is not a personal view. Nor is the idea that IVF destroys life. IVF doesn’t destroy life, it creates it. It creates a life that would not have existed if it wasn’t for IVF. So I suppose in the same vein, I am desperately trying to create life whilst doing everything in my power not to let my biological flaws get in the way.

While we’re on the subject, I don’t believe that life begins at conception. Viable life begins at implantation – a fertilised egg only has about a 25% chance of implanting in the uterine lining, so how can it be seen as anything other than potential life? For all those who want to save “leftover embryos” (if only – how many of us are lucky enough to have anything to freeze???), how do you propose giving each and every one of them life when medical science can only give a 25% chance of success to couples desperate for a child?

Next scan is on Monday. Finding it hard to believe I will ever get that far.

  1. I don’t think “those” type of people are very pro-ivf either – for many of the reasons you outline. I think a lot of them are the ‘just adopters’ as well. How’s that for a fine generalization?

    Good luck w/ the scan.

  2. I think maybe the best way to think about it is that ‘those’ type of people are not ‘your’ people. (I have never understood how someone can get so worked up about a decision that is none of their business)…
    Fingers, toes, and everything else crossed for a good weekend & a positive scan on monday.

  4. Wow, that makes it 12 weeks and a day today, oh I am so so happy for you honey! I have fingers toes and everything crossed for you on Monday. Looking forward to hearing about baby waving at you…

  5. It is indeed a topic that will always be discussed and never agreed upon. What do you say to someone who decided to have an abortion in her early 20’s after a one night stand with a stranger, then goes on to suffer 5 miscarriages ………….
    You would think this person would regret that decision if she knew that 10 years later she would would have such problems. It is a sad story and it is my story and no I don’t regret my decision as it was MY decision.

  6. Feebee – good luck for today…hope that little bean gives his/her mum and dad loads of somersaults!!!

    Big hugs,

  7. DJ TORUŃ to zlokalizowana w naszym regionie zajmująca się obsługę eventów wobszarze Kujawko Pomorksiego ,prowadzenia imprez, jak równieżoprawy muyzcznej Na runku lokalnymdziałamy już od kilkudziesięciu lat.DJ na wesele Inowrocław w ramach obsługispółek specjalizuje się w organizowaniuwesel z także tworzeniu ścieżek audiowg regół dla działalności. Na tym poluDJToruń odnotował już pierwsze sukcesy. Ponieważ naszymi kontrahentami są zarówno osoby prywatne jaki duże i małe spółki spólki. Ponieważ, po mimo wielokrotnych wyjaśnień na różnych forach internetowych w dalszym ciągu pojawiają się pytania dotyczące utworów kupowanych za pośrednictwem Beatporu i innych portali informuję, że Stanowisko ZPAV wypowiedziane na spotkaniu w czerwcu 2010 w klubie Alfa w Warszawie, a następnie w klubie Remont w Warszawie w Listopadzie2010 r i potwierdzone na spotkaniu DJ Union z OZZ w dniu 10 marca 2011r w siedzibie ZAiKS mówi, że utwory zakupione na Beatport z wydrukowanym dokumentem potwierdzającym zakup są plikami legalnymi. Do ich odtwarzania nie jest potrzebna DJ Licencja o ile nie ma zastrzeżenia o zakazie wykonania kopii. Należy za każdym razem sprawdzić czy w regulaminie danego portalu jest zastrzeżenie dotyczące wykonania dodatkowej kopii tzn czy utwór musi pozostać na Dysku na który został zapisany podczas “ściągania” czy ewentualnie może zostać wykonania kopia np na CDR. Musicie odróżnić czy dany portal udostępnia utwory “tylko do użytku domowego” – wówczas pod żadnym pozorem nie wolno go odtwarzać publicznie nawet posiadając DJ Licencję. Jeżeli jest standardowe zastrzeżenie jak na każdej płycie ” kopiowanie, publiczne odtwarzanie bez zezwolenia. – wówczas takie nagranie może być odtwarzane pod warunkiem opłacania przez organizatora imprezy ( np klub) tantiem za publiczne odtwarzanie (standardowe mowy z ZAiKS, ZPAV, STOART i SAWP) . Jak wcześniej zostało to napisane DJ Licencja nie jest potrzebna.

  8. I and my guys came looking through the best procedures located on the website while all of the sudden came up with an awful feeling I had not expressed respect to the blog owner for those strategies. These men appeared to be for that reason glad to learn them and have now sincerely been taking pleasure in them. Thank you for turning out to be very thoughtful as well as for using this form of fantastic ideas millions of individuals are really eager to be aware of. My sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to sooner.

  9. You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the article you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times follow your heart.|

  10. Greetings! I know this is kineoris kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  11. Where this type of dance initially came from is unknown. Know this, if Barack Obama was a real Grasp of Shaolin Kung Fu.this nation would be in a great deal much better shape! You are choosing to not be a target any longer.
