uh no... people who ooppose abortions always say it's not really a baby, but a clump of cells.  But to now, basically kill it and suddenly call it a baby.   Can you say hypocrit?

She can call it whatever she likes. Not my call.

She obviously had no respect for the life and although the baby has gone to heaven I think she would be a hypocrite for having the nerve to call it her angel baby..

She wasn't killing a "baby" when she aborted a "fetus". (Talking in most pro-choicers logic) So why would a soulless clump of cells become an angel baby?


A mother who miscarried her baby needs that comfort, a woman who chose to abort needs to live with a decision.


Quoting Redwoods_Mama:

88% no.


 


Wow.  WTF.  Heartless much?

I mean, she can call it whatever she damn well pleases, but I wouldn't consider an abortion to be the same as a miscarriage.  

I will add that caveat, if a mother had an abortion for a medical reason either on her side or the babies - I wouldn't contest that.

Quoting Kaybean:

Not unless it was aborted due to serious medical reasons. If it was aborted because it wasn't wanted, then it's offensive to call it an angel baby. You didn't want it, so why call it something like that?

Well in reality, yes. She can call it whatever she wants. Most people would think she shouldn't, I'm sure, and I can see how it could be considered insulting to someone who lost a baby they very much wanted, but she can call it whatever she wants to.

Unless there is a medical reason, calling any child that you abort an 'angel' baby pretty much defines hypocrisy, and an insult to any mother who lost a child she wanted and loved even before it was born.

My opinion doesn't/won't stop anyone from saying whatever they want ~ but that leaves the door open for others to respond. Having lost four babies before I had my boys, I don't think I'd have it in me to respond in a civil manner, let alone a kind manner to such a statement.

No. Not at all.
