And these people are reproducing...

There's an online forum that I check out from time to time called the bump. They have pregnancy information, and various message boards for women who are pregnant, have children, in various family situations, etc. There's a large amount of stupidity, ignorance, and general insanity that you see posted by people on a daily basis, and it's usually both entertaining and informative to check in from time to time and see what's being discussed...

Well last night, innocently sandwiched between posts with such titles as "Welcome back Rebecca" and "Anyone else having an all nighter?" was this gem...

Any truth in this........

Saw this post on a community forum today, and was wondering if there is any truth to it. Anyone know?

Obama's democratic party is considering an option for the public health care that involve what is called "...late term Post Birth Abortions..." This would allow for the abortion of babies after birth, up to 96 weeks after birth. WOW!!! That is almost a 2 year old! I believe it will be done just like partial birth abortions by sucking out the brains with a tube. But this is said to require some anasthetic.


Seriously, you have to ask a public message board if it's possible that the president is considering making it legal to murder two year old children? Good grief! That alone is bad enough. But what really took the cake on this one is the responses. You can hope that maybe the original post was trying to stir up some drama, or be funny somehow, but the responses she got were completely sincere... responses such as...

Is there any news source to back this up? It sounds bogus...

Um, no. There is no news source that supports the assertion that Obama is planning to make it legal to murder 2 year olds.

Ive been searching and havent found anything regaurding this on the web, so it is probably bogus.

Yep... probably. Can't be sure though.

I just googled it and there is nothing that comes up saying that Obama is proposing anything of the like.

Well if you're able to use Google, there's no need to actually use your brain.

If it isn't made up that's diabolical and I regret voting for the man.

Me too, anonymous internet idiot, me too.

And my favourite by far...

That seems like such an extreme idea that I struggle to imagine it's true, but I'm in NZ and have no idea if it is true or not.

If it is true, are they talking about babies with certain health complications? Or just any parent who says, "nah I don't really want to do this anymore?"

The latter just seems so ridiculous with so many people keen to adopt.


Yeah, because if we heard that John Key, New Zealand's smiley faced prime minister, was proposing that it should be legal to murder two year olds, I'd consider that it might be true because I don't live there, so really, how should I know. SERIOUSLY?!! And of course, the fact that people may want to adopt these children is what makes it ridiculous. Someone needs to check the drinking water down there in New Zealand, because it appears to be turning people insane.


I'm horrified that not only are these people all reproducing, but their children will be Fiona's classmates. Good luck, public education system, you've got your work cut out for you.

And that is exactly why I stopped going on The Bump mid-pregnancy. I guess it is up to us to re-populate the Earth with smart people. We've got our work cut out for us!

Wow!! Reading the beginning of this post, I thought it was going to be about the anti-vaccination stuff on mommy support boards, like this one.

But yours is so much worse!!!

I think it would be better to have the option of sucking children's brains out until they are 21 years old! That is when they stop being so troublesome (except boys when it would be 31!)

Louise: I think that you are just jealous that you didn't think of this supposedly true idea, first.

Hi Mrs. C.S... I think we're off to a good start! :-)

Hi C.L.... there are at least 15 posts a day about vaccination too, I just never read those. I thought the link you gave was interesting though.

Hi Mum! You would. ;-) Sometimes I'm amazed we all made it to adulthood! :-)

Hi Lori, either way it works for me, I got a laugh out of it!
