    *Request for referring to people who don't understand PASS
    If you are reading and posting here at these message boards, you most likely understand "PASS" and what it feels like, and you know how sensitive and fragile us women healing from PASS can be at times. And one thing we are especially fragile about is when new people pop in here and don't understand anything about PASS, or don't *care* to understand anything about PASS, or haven't had an abortion themselves, and they start posting up judgemental, upsetting or hurtful things about women and abortion. Sometimes these people call themselves 'christians', and insist they are doing nothing wrong by expressing their views, regardless of how painful it can be to the women here. You may also see upsetting bumper stickers, sign wavers, billboards, ect out in the real world, many sponsored by religious groups. We all hate those too! So when discussing any of these topics, we have terms we would like to use in regards to posting about these people.

    We like to refer to people who understand PASS and all it's issues and effects as:
    "Enlightened People" or EP's, and those that don't or don't care to as "Unenlightened People" or UP's.

    If you are referring to someone christian you could also use the terms:
    "Enlightened Christians" or EC's, and "Unenlightened Christians" or UC's

    This may seem like a small thing, but we do have some christian/religion boards here for women with PASS who are healing and want to discuss PASS in relation to their religions, and at these boards we have some very nice, very sweet, very PASS aware and understanding 'religious' ladies that hang around it. Then when "UC's" come in here and start bashing women who've had abortions or posting things that are upsetting, this upsets women here, and also upsets 'our' christians, and they feel somewhat sad about having to share the label 'christians' with those women or men that barge in here and have absolutely no empathy or understanding about PASS, and don't care to have any either..
    So when referring to people like that, or referring to billboards, bumper stickers, sign-wavers, ect, please use the terms "Unenlightened Christians" or "Unenlightened People" when discussing them, so we don't lump together those that understand with those that don't.
    Thanks!
