Hmm just because she has the BRCA 1 gene? I really don't think she thought this through. Who's the doctor that okay'd this?
 
From how they explained it this morning on HLN, having that gene doesn't automatically make your risk as high as hers was, but if you go to genetic counselor they can do the calculations for you. For Angelina it was an 87% chance.

You don't need boobs to have kids, period.  Somebody failed biology j/k.Smile

She really didn't have any options really but to have a double mastectomy to greatly improve her chances of a long life.  It's not really that difficult a decision if you consider the consequences of getting cancer and dying from it.  Breasts are replaceable after all.  Life on the other hand...
Exactly! I can understand if it was a kidney or something but your breasts are basic.

NO!
yes!


It's stupid to put vanity before your life...Since when does loosing your breasts decrease your life! As i said it's not a vital organ!

If no man wants you because of your chest he isn't for you!

Angelina doesn't have  PR team also.  She is her own PR.

i'm one of those people that holds both parties responsible.  she is a homewrecker bc she could've said no...he is a cheating POS bc he left his marriage unceremoniously and caused extreme humiliation.

the amount of time doesn't really make me change my opinions on situations of the past.  it's still a fact, it's just an old fact.  i can still separate her work from her personal life.  they seem to have a great family.



PREACH!

i don't believe breastfeeding (which many consider to be the most healthy option) is possible with both breasts removed.  obviously, i realize it is not a requirement for infants to be breast fed.  however, i wouldn't consider the breast as a simple basic body part in this regard either.

so, producing milk/food for ones offspring is like meh?  lol...ok.
 
anyway, i was actually responding to the general statement that seemed to imply (to me, at least, anyway) that breasts are somewhat irrelevent when it comes to child birth.   obviously, breasts inflicted with current and/or most certain impending disease would be another matter...
