Murder existed before our laws, murder is wrong even if you're in a time or jurisdiction without a law against it. Abortion is the murder of a very young human.

Many parents talk to their unborn children, just because a person can't speak doesn't make them inhuman. An aborted child is a dead child; abortion is about pain and death.

I disagree, the minority are the people who want to increase abortions, use taxpayer dollars to pay for an promote abortions and those who support infanticide.

Most people believe late term abortion is wrong.

Don't pretend to speak for me. I HAVE children. I carried all three of my pregnancies to term, INCLUDING the one that was unplanned.
I'm glad Bitner didn't murder he unborn children. Note how she writes pro-abortion but when it comes to her own family she'd rather have an unwanted pregnancy than kill her own son or daughter.

Most Americans know abortion is murder, not the media. It's simple, if human life has value than age doesn't make it worthless. If abortion is good, why isn't it good to have children or government make end of life decisions for seniors?

But for a tiny minority of the population, who refuse to look at the facts of life, and believe against all evidence that there is a one-size-fits-all thing called 'glorious pregnancy', you sure are drearily persistent.
There are exceptions for rape, incest and where there is risk to the mother's life. Where do pro-abortion see abortion as bad? I'd say, they see one-size-fits-all thing called 'reproductive choice' that includes the murder of a very young child.

So you see these exceptions as good?

So you are pro abortion in these circumstances?

"Murder existed before our laws"

I disagree that there was a time before "laws", even if they weren't written. Laws, themselves, existed before there was formal "government", or the written word.

"murder is wrong even if you're in a time or jurisdiction without a law against it."

Murder doesn't exist without the laws, written or otherwise.

"Abortion is the murder of a very young human."

No, it's not.

"The choice to put an unwanted child up for adoption rather than murder it before birth is a reproductive choice. Abortion is a death choice."

Neither of these statements is true. Adoption is a parenting choice, after the reproduction is over. Continuing, or ending, a pregnancy is a reproductive choice. Period.

"Abstinence is a solution for a woman who doesn't want to be pregnant, not abortion."

Abstinence (leaving out rape) and contraceptives are solutions for the woman who doesn't want to GET pregnant. Abortion is the solution for the woman who doesn't wish to REMAIN pregnant. Adoption is the solution for the person who doesn't wish to parent their child.

"Adoption is the most beautiful act of generosity possible and abortion is an act of evil except in cases of rape and incest."

You are entitled to your opinions. No one else has to care, or live by them, and they are not "fact".

"Many parents talk to their unborn children, just because a person can't speak doesn't make them inhuman."

I didn't say it did. Fine, if you want to nitpick, you can talk to a fetus. It can't answer you, though, so there is no point. Feel better now, Moron?

"An aborted child is a dead child; abortion is about pain and death."

There is no child. Children are already born.

And the fetus feels no pain.

"I disagree, the minority are the people who want to increase abortions, use taxpayer dollars to pay for an promote abortions and those who support infanticide."

No one here has even remotely suggested any such thing.

"Most people believe late term abortion is wrong."

Who was talking about late term abortion only? Is there some reason you can't stick to a topic?

"I'm glad Bitner didn't murder he unborn children. Note how she writes pro-abortion but when it comes to her own family she'd rather have an unwanted pregnancy than kill her own son or daughter."

I never had an unwanted pregnancy. I had an unplanned pregnancy, and made a choice regarding it, as every woman has the legal and moral right to do.

I don't, and have never, written "pro-abortion".

Why must you people lie constantly? Oh, that's right, because the actual truth refutes your melodramatic nonsense.

That depends on which definition of "conception" one is using. If you mean implantation, then yes. If you mean fertilization, then no.

Maybe you make the laws and definitions in Brianworld, but here on earth you're wrong. Murder is a legal term that has no bearing on abortion. Women decide which options they take in life, and have no obligation to carry a pregnancy they don't want. There is also no obligation to bear a child because someone else wants to adopt.

"Conceive" clearly does not equate with the medical definition of conception. In Hebrews, Leviticus, and numbers, mention is made to "conceive seed"--which is physically impossible.

I guess they should have read some 20th century medical books so that they would use the correct modern day usage.

Shouldn't an omniscient deity know correct terminology? Barring that, shouldn't modern believers not argue about the bible declaring life begins at conception when it clearly does not?

The first two exceptions show that you anti choice people don't really care about the "baby", and just want to see women punished for having sex.

Is a person any less a person because they are the result of rape or incest?

You don't have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.

I understand why bible quotes embarrass you, and why you cut out most of mine.
"you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock."
(Deuteronomy 13:15)

God is ordering that everybody in a town be stabbed to death if even one person in the town worships a god other than him, that would include babies and pregnant women.

Iynant Vanzant has been telling Black women to stop having kids with Boo Boo who abandons his kids and don't care..........well that's 80% of Black males! lmao

Black men are insane!

With the constant bashing of Black women by other Black women many are not accepting Black mens' advances!
