Thank you for your comment Cassie - I believe that the author was trying to help those going through the tragic loss of a baby with how to deal with the situation and people and not necessarily calling other people names. We do appreciate your comment however!

I'm sorry. This article comes off extremely self-righteous. Loss and grief is difficult. I understand that. I work in an area of healthcare where I've seen all kinds of people pass away for all types of reasons. I was looking for an article to help understand what a friend is going through. Being called names is not what I bargained for. I suppose it all depends on one's point of view. Some people have a different view of life and death. It IS ok for someone to not feel the same as you. You don't have the market cornered on bad life experiences because you've had a miscarriage. It is extremely selfish for you to expect everyone to take on your point of view.
