true or false?

i say false. why? because what about women who have several miscarriages before actually have a baby? are they not mothers? do they just have "dead fetuses"?

in your scenerio I'd say true, but if a women has adopted or has step kids then yes she is a mom.

Biologically speaking, that's true. But there are many amazing adoptive and step moms out there who have never given birth. I still consider them moms.

Unless this is an abortion debate and i missed your point. Then, I'm not up for that shit.

False. Anyone who's cared for a child in a mother role or who has been pregnant is a mother.
