Anatomy of a coat hanger abortion

Dr. Jen Gunter

The coat hanger isn’t sterile. It isn’t even clean.

If the woman, or girl, is alone she thrusts it blindly upwards into the vagina. She’s hoping it will get into her uterus and do something. She may or may not know that to get into the uterus the coat hanger has to navigate the small opening in the cervix called the os.

A coat hanger is technically narrow enough to get through a pregnant cervical os, but the end is sharp not tapered so it can lacerate and perforate. Getting any instrument through the cervix safely also requires visualization and knowledge of the correct amount of force.

If she’s lucky enough to get the coat hanger through her cervix it could easily sail right through the back or side walls of the uterus. The uterine wall is soft and easily perforated with the wrong instrument or unskilled hands. If…

I’m Not Gonna Lie…It’s Been a Lazy Weekend

This is what I’ve been up to for a while tonight.  Between the Sims, three different Bingo apps, and the Duggars on Netflix, I’d have to say this has been one of the most unproductive weekends I’ve had in a long time.  There’s lots of stuff I could have gotten done tonight…but I just wasn’t in a tidying mood.
When you don’t have kids, and your landlord won’t let you have any animals, you’re still allowed to have those weekends, so I figure I’ll keep enjoying them while I can.  While kids are not in the near future, they’re going to happen at some point.
I have to admit, I wish the Sims Freeplay was a little more like the Sims for computer, but as a free app, I’m pretty impressed so far with the quality of the graphics, as well as with my tablet’s ability to keep up with everything.  Since it was free for us, and also on the cheaper end of the current tablet options, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  Verizon has done something good, for once!
Well, I’m starting to get notifications from the Sims that one of my tasks is done, so I’m gonna get back to that for now.  More posts to come tomorrow (hopefully)!


Sometimes I Want to Punch People Right in the Face…

Read this link, from Salon earlier today.

My thoughts on the above-referenced article are as follows:
…Not that I want to think bad thoughts onto kids (Karma, and what have you), but part of me wonders if these celebrity parents would still feel the same way if one or more of their own kids ended up hospitalized and/or permanently disabled because they caught a disease that is so easily preventable.
Obviously these kids don’t have a choice, and it makes me so angry that their parents are endangering their lives because of their own absurd “beliefs” based on scientifically dis-proven (on multiple occasions) medical “studies” conducted by some wacko Italian dude…

Ugh…Now I need to find a post to follow this that will restore my faith in humanity. At the very least, a video of baby animals. I’ll get right on that, hopefully more to come later today…
