By your logic we shouldn't be advocating anything, or banning the advocating of anything, yet you're advocating banning dissent in forums about circumcision, etc., a breath before stating that the babies are UCers aren't anyone's business.
Either babies are everyone's business, or they aren't.
I'll say it one more time, because I know it's sometimes hard to read my words in the "wall of text" style that I post them. I'll make this simple and easy for you to digest:
You can think whatever you want in your own head, in real life, etc. You can say whatever you want in your own head, in real life, etc. You should -not- be able to say whatever you want to women on a forum that specifically states that you CANNOT say certain things. If a womans baby on the UC board dies during her birth, it is not your business or place to say anything negative about it, because you do not know the situation, the baby, the mother, or anything else other than what has been posted on the UC board.
It's kind of like how, I know and am friends with a ton of gay and lesbian folks. But I fully support the rights of the Boy Scouts to be gigantic a-holes and ban gay men from serving as pack leaders. Not because I believe that children need to be protected from gay men, but because it's none of my business to tell a private organization who can and can't join their club. I CAN decide not to be a part of their club, because I don't like their attitude toward the gay and lesbian community....just like YOU have a right not to be a part of MDC, because they CLEARLY support a place for women to go and WITHOUT JUDGEMENT discuss UC and their plans openly. If you don't like the idea of a place where women who have MADE THE DECISION to UC can come and openly talk about their plans without dissenting opions about UC, go someplace else.
We champion the no-circ cause here.....we have a "case against circ" forum.
We champion birth choice here....we have a "UC Support" forum.
There is no forum here for pro-circ discussion, pro-CIO discussion, etc. Just like there is no board here for "anti-UC" discussion. This all seems so simple to me. I am a member of MDC so that I can advocate breastfeeding, intact children, non-vaccination, healthy living, gentle discipline \ and talk about UC without the buzzing of negativity from anti-UC folks in my ear. Period.
