    Re: Infanticide and Late Term Abortion

    I will just address the main points of your post:

    So an abortion can not be murder because the gov't shouldn't legally know it's taking place?
    Correct?

    You said one is a social construct, one is not.

    I asked how they differ. Hardly a trick question.

    How can you define "transgender" without using "gender" in the definition?
