just a thought.....

If it is considered a double homicide if a pregnant woman and the baby are killed, then why is an abortion considered a medical procedure? In both cases the baby is killed. I'm really not trying to start any drams this is just something I've been thinking about.

  • Because the death of a child even when they are in the womb is murder, pro abortionists have just managed to make that fact seem less important then the womans choice. So people have chosen to overlook the murder of babies by doctors, but of course others will say that one is because the mother wanted that child, the other would be that the mother didnt want it. So I guess that the baby is only alive if the mother wants it to be.

  • Good point - I completely agree. What about the parital birth abortions? Those are completely murder in my book. I am all for personal choice and freedom, but I believe one person's freedom stops where another's starts.

  • I think that the baby has to be so far along for it to be considered homicide. They have to be viable outside of the womb.

  • I think this debate will go on forever in this country!
    Lech Lawesa former president of Poland, said he would rather resign the presidency 20 times before signing abortion into law in Poland. I guess where you live has a lot to do with how you think. Even if I don't agree with some things personally, I guess that is all a part of what makes America great.

  • well....there are some women who have abortions at like 20 something weeks and those babies can make it outside the womb not always but there is still a chance
