    Re: Infanticide and Late Term Abortion

    And I didn't. I argued that outlawing abortion would be a violation of a woman's right to medical privacy. IOW, outlawing abortion would be unconstitutional. So no, I did not say it's legal...

    Kind of. The accurate way to say it is that abortion cannot be murder because it's not illegal and the reason it's not illegal is because the government cannot interfere with a woman's private...

    Including editing, I took about an hour in my last response so I don't consider my response to be "fast". And I personally think my own arguments are much more well-reasoned than yours and that you...

    An arbitrary standard would be completely random. ...

    Let me put it this way. Let's say that a scientist took the brain out of a woman and put it in a man's body. That person will likely say that they are woman in a man's body. Are they wrong? I...

    Ending the pregnancy does not require the death of the fetus. Obviously giving birth qualifies as "ending a pregnancy" and the child does not die in that instance. And likewise if there was a...

    Re: Infanticide and Late Term Abortion

    That's not particularly accurate. The goal of the abortion is not to kill the child. It's to end the pregnancy. Of course in ending the pregnancy, the fetus dies, but that is a side-effect of...
