    I think I've written as many random pieces as there are bad reality shows on TV. No joke. In any case, I'm a little doodling squirrel... a little hyper, pretty happy, and one of God's creations.<br /><br />Except I'm not furry like a squirrel. Nor do I have a tail.<br /><br />I also sketch, play the flute, and twirl a flag in Colorguard. You'll likely find me surfing Worthy or checking my mail for the 612th time today. That's.... actually, I think that's about it.

  1. These are the ones who may have been pressured into getting one. Like the gay marriage advocates, the pro-choice movement has alot of influence and have affected/infected enough people that this 10% may very well have been pressured or tricked into their abortions despite their better judgment. I believe those women who have miscarriages also suffer similar occurances of the same mental anguish. I don't know about the gropu surveyed. I got my facts from standtrue.com, which is a pro-life website. They were not specific about their interviewing process, but their results matched up with other sources I checked. So is the figure that about 20% of Canadians will have a mental health problem at some point in their lives. Its not really outside of actual statistical mental health numbers. I might add I've been on the recieving end for treatment from the Canadian medical system for that. I agree that a percentage of the population has some kind of mental illness, but there is a difference between having mild depression and having serious psychological problems. Plus, the twenty percent includes the elderly and children (Alzheimers, ADHD), neither of which frequent the abortion clinic. I'm just saying that having an abortion does not simply make a women 'sad,' it can and does cause mental health problems for many women. After doing the debate and really finding out the facts, I can barely even think about it...! After finding out the procedures for abortion, I was just heartbroken. Four thousand children every day, denied the chance of living by their parents. Onelight, you're right about men being left out the equation; it's stereotypical. I'm sorry for your loss.
  2. I did a debate on abortion and found that 10% of all women who have them have severe psychological repercussions and/or have to go on medication for mental reasons. It's staggering.

  6. As they say in the land of Scarlet's Spot... "Oh, bugger! Why is the lavabread always gone?"
  7. No reason to get upset, OK? We're just discussing anatomy. All I know is that the pictures I have seen of the human abdominiopelvic cavity show the spleen directly to the left of the stomach and underneath the lower left end of the rib cage. I would imagine palpation being done from the inside (right side of the left rib cage and going in). As for the spear, I just think that a pierce from the left side would be more difficult to hit the spleen, since it is the furthest left of the upper abdominal organs and against the rib cage. But even if you are correct - does not the Scripture state that Jesus was dead before the soldier pierced His side? And where did the water come from? This is according to Lee Strobel's book "The Case For Christ." The sustained rapid heart rate of Jesus on the cross that would have contributed to heart failure resulted in the collection of fluid in the membrane around the heart and lungs (called pericardial and pleural effusion, respectively). When the spear was stuck into Jesus' side, this 'water' came out with the blood. Speaking medically, I believe Jesus died of cardiac arrest (the irregular breathing caused carbon dioxide in the blood to dissolve into carbonic acid, which makes the blood's acidity go up and leads to an irregular heartbeat).
  8. --shakes head-- "The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God. As the Scriptures say, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent."
  9. will there ever be a last on this spot...? i'm having a hard time fathoming it. i don't even know how it would happen. o_O hahaha.

  11. Our dog turned a whopping eleven... (This is weird because for once I'm associated with one of the oldest of something in a group. Normally here I'm the youngest!) The randomness on this board is a little lax, soooo... Muffins taste delicious on a bed of fried spinach with a helping of saurkraut! Rusty cogs! And a bucket of hangnails!
  12. Congrats from Drive-by, Scarlet! ^^
