Why mourn

Why do people mourn a miscarriage and not an abortion? They're both just medical waste, right?

  • I don't think it's a question of whether or not the baby is wanted, it's a question of whether or not it's a baby.


    It is hypocritical to call it a baby when you miscarry but a fetus or "clump of cells" when you want to abort. It's all semantics to make yourself feel better about doing something that you know isn't right.


    Why is the loss of a child more tragic when it is miscarried as opposed to when it is aborted?  Either both are babies and should be grieved, or neither are babies and it shouldn't be such a big deal, right????

  • a child IMO is just that at the moment of conception. until this world understand that, this stupidity will continue.

  • Because people choose to have an abortion - they didn't want the child anyway, why would they mourn? IMO, no - they are not "medical waste," they were children who either passed away naturally (miscarriage) or were killed (abortion).

  • they didn't chose for their baby to die and they have a right to mourn. as for an abortion that should be enough to make anyone cry.

  • Women do mourn abortions. It is a very tough decision for a woman to make and she has to deal with it the rest of her life.

  • Because with a miscarriage you wanted that baby and it hurts to lose it.

    I'm confused. Pro-abortionists say aborted babies aren't human, they're just medical waste, and there's no difference between the aborted fetus and the miscarriage fetus. I want a million dollars but if I can't have it I don't mourn. I really want to understand. What is the difference between the two babies that makes one disposable?

  • Ummm... wow... OP- trying to guage if the "medical waste" comment was sarcastic of not...

    You have obviously never lost a child. I will not touch the abortion portion of this comment, but I will speak on behalf of the women that have endured a miscarriage. A miscarriage is the body's natural process of expelling a fetus. It is spontaneous and feared by many.
    My daughter was not miscarried, but she was stillborn at 36 weeks.
    I find your medical waste comment rude, insensitive and ignorant. To people that have lost a child, that is incredibly insulting to the child that was lost. I hope that you never have to deal with losing a child.

    If you paid attention, you'd find it was a direct quote of pro-abortionists who use it to defend why abortion is no big deal
