    Fair enough.

    (Granted, I hate that it would limit abortion and make a nonviable fetus worth more than an adult woman, but the abortion clinics are not my main focus.)

    (I hate that fact that adult women haven't figured out how not to get pregnant yet. It hurts their credibility as rational adults. Not that the men in the equation are any better.)

    I'm not talking in that case. If it's because you were too stupid to use protection or use protection correctly, that's you choice, but you did it to yourself. I'm talking the "emergency abortions," where what happened or is happening is not your choice, like where the mother's health is impaired. This would ban ALL abortions after 20 weeks, not just the by choice ones.

    I get that. I also do not want to get into a huge abortion debate. I'll never get one. Neither will K. I have no dog in that fight. I do wonder though how many abortions are as you describe. How many are emergencies or due to circumstances beyond a person's consent (result of rape or incest). Not that that changes anything, I'm just curious.

    At the local hospital of course. Most people that I know of have decided that they are not going to the doctor anymore unless they are close to death. I'm really finding this to be out countries way of killing us all off.

    I'm starting to notice changes in my body from lifting. My wristbones are more prominent. I have an odd little divot next to them if I flex my wrists because of the way the muscles ties to the ligament. I can see my ribs if I stretch. My boobs are more perky. I have muscle definition in my calves and the beginnings of thigh definition (something I never had even when I was underweight in high school.) I still have that "crease" beneath my ribcage in the back, but it seems to be, I dunno, better? (Hard to explain, it just seems to fit with my body better than it did. My back seems smoother and less knobbly. My hipbones seem to not stick out oddly anymore (again, hard to explain, but there's less of an abrupt transition from waist to hip to hipbone. My hipbones seemed to stick out more than they should have proportionally before.) My arms have a LOT more definition.

    Glad to see things are changing. You didn't mention whether or not you were happy with the changes.

    I do like them. It's an adjustment, going from skinny flabby, to being able to pass as a fitness model some days.
