  1. Brave of you to write this, but its good to hear the science.

    • Thanks, Lisa. I think it’s important for people who rant about the issue to have some basic understanding of what is actually happening in the process from conception to birth. It all happens in the woman’s body. And I don’t define “personhood” as an attribute of either a clump of cells or a corporation.

      • Having had a miscarriage in the early weeks (approximately 6 weeks in) I have to believe that it was what had to happen. It was, at that point, a clump of cells that could not survive.

      • It’s a tough thing to have happen, but it happens a LOT! About 30% of pregnancies are lost early on. My sister lost a baby near term, and that was hard for her, but she had had a baby earlier, and had another later.
