wow. thanks for that link. so messy, and so sad. i'm not at all anti-abortion, though i do have issues with elective terminations after about 20 weeks...but i don't see why there's THAT much confusion of the two issues. i think almost any thinking adult can make the distinction, if they try. room for gray, people. allow some room for gray.

and i had no idea about the '70% of mothers considered suicide after stillbirth' stat. i assume it's the same after infant death. i know i sure as hell did...somehow just reading that made me feel - even all this time later - better, more normal.

thanks, Catherine.
