I didn't say it was nor do I think it should or ever could be.
To say that because the end result is the same there is no difference between induced and spontaneous abortion is absurd....whether you consider abortion murder or not.
There would be no need for RvW if that were the case. Even the SC acknowledged the difference when they rendered their decision. If there were no difference between spontaneous abortion and induced abortion then there would be no need for RvW and affirming a woman's right to abort. After all, there are no laws against spontaneous abortion nor will there ever need to be. So if induced is athe same as spontaneous....why the need for RvW /
Agreed. 100%.

However, the inital question was about the end result being the same, and that's what I was responding to.
I don't know. Did YOU compare your mother and father's natural deaths and your friends murder to a woman making her own medical definition ?
Nope. But I dont compare either one to 9/11 either, that was you in your post, hence my comment.

Ok, I'll try and "relax ".
You know the bible says, that the fear of the Lord, is the begining of wisdom.
I find it very sad you think you need to "fear" your G-d. If you're living a just life, you have no reason to fear. I've never lived one day in fear of my G-d, even when I fk-d up REALLY terribly. There's nothing so bad that can't be forgiven. If you've been forgiven by the people you wronged, then G-d is a piece of cake. <<grin>>

Some of us do. We just dont believe its your Jesus. If I thought you actually wanted to learn something new, I'd show you why the Jewish faith rejects the claims of jesus as Messiah, but I truly dont think you are at a point where you can handle questioning your own views by reading how another faith believes. And I mean no disrespect by that.

Says who?
Who are YOU to say that how people come to what THEY believe in as G-d in their hearts and souls are wrong?
G-d as a diety has been many things to many people and if THEY are sold in their faith, who are you to tell them they're wrong?

I found the truth, and the truth isn't your version of g-d.
"TRUTH" is subjective.

When did I say the viable one NEEDED support? Such help can be given on the basis of weak function without it being absolutely necessary.

Oxygen is often given to make the transition easier for the neonate. It doesn't mean it's life or death. As I explained before, a non-viable fetus couldn't use the oxygen at all and will still croak.

Why did you originally contend that a fetus requiring medical support upon birth is not considered "viable"?

As I noted, men married as a social duty. It wasn't for love; most marriages were arranged. Oscar fu**ing Wilde had kids--I suppose he was straight? Take off your blinders of ignorance and learn something of the world.

There is a very telling piece of the J&D story-- jonathan took off his armor and clothing and stood naked in front of david. The hebrew nation did not allow for nudity between non-lovers; soldiers died rather than remove their armor for treatment.

No, I don't believe everyone is gay, but I know a love story when I see it. You won't see what you don't WANT to see.

Yes, and that is also the reason Jonathon had a child, with a woman, becouse he to was gay. Lol
Plus, the biggest downfall for David was after he lusted after Bathsheba not Bob.:)
Plus he tried to cover it up, by bringing her husband home, and throwing him a party, before sending him to his wife. Yet Uriah had more chivalry then most, and did not go home to his wife. So David got him drunk, in the hopes that he would then go home, which again he did not. I geuss you also think uriah was gay and just wanted to stay with david. Lol
I geuss, that is why david had uriah go back to the front line to be killed, so as to cover up the affair he has with uriah?
Just becouse you are gay, don't mean everyone is. There have always been gay people, but very few compared to all others.
Whether or not you believe the bible was inspired by God, it still is plain to see, that David was anything but gay.

So, this girl had never heard of the police? If this is true, which I find doubtful, she chose to abort and then was talked out of it. She CHOSE--twice. She also chose to be a victim; the story does illustrate how pathetic religious upbringing is when confronted with real-world probles.

1) Bitner IS separating support of choice and support of abortion.
2) Support of Hitler does NOT mean support of the holocaust. Although if you claim to be a leader in the moral world and you remain silent about an atrocity for expediency, that might be construed as support of the atrocity.
That's multi-dimensional thinking.
I disagree with number one. It is convenient but not true.

Much like her saying she still pracices the Catholic Faith but is a pagan. You can cover for her, and I get it. I find the distinction to be a convenient way to be proabortion while claiming to promote choice. Just seperate the action from the reaction. In the pagan world there are no rules.

"Hell" doesn't appear in earlier versions of the bible, just some of the "dumbed down" modern versions. You know, like "homosexuality" and other concepts unknown in any of the biblical languages.

And lets not forget Song of Solomon, Ruth and Naomi.
"Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me."
Ruth 1:14, referring to the relationship between Ruth and Naomi, mentions that "Ruth clave onto her." (KJV) The Hebrew word translated here as "clave" is identical to that used in the description of a heterosexual marriage in Genesis 2:24:
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

A perp could still be charged and convicted with fetal homicide after the assault on a woman in the waiting room as she awaited the abortion of her unwanted fetus.
In any case, if a woman is assaulted and as a result her fetus, wanted or unwanted, is killed, then it is obvious that the FHL did not protect her right to carry to term now....did it ? So in lieu of the protection that it did not provide....and which you maintain is the ONLY reason for its existence, it still exists to allow us to charge the perp with a second crime of homicide and punish him accordingly. So, in sum, to say that the sole reason for the existence of FHL's is the protection of is NOT accurate. It serves another purpose as well....beyond protection
<quoted text>
Since we still, and will always have traffic violators and morons who drive drunk, their status as a deterrent could be debated.
What is not debatable is that the laws also exist to be able to punish....and not less significantly...to provide a steady stream of revenue for State and City coffers.
To say that traffic laws exist for one reason and one reason only.....to deter violations....would not be accurate
<quoted text>
They are blatant contradictions. The latter is correct....the former is just WRONG.
<quoted text>
Hogwash my good man. He is defining viability as the ability to survive....EXCLUSIVELY....WITH OUT medical assistance. In other words it must be able to survive WITHOUT medical assistance to be considered viable, and if it DOES need any medical assistance at all....then it is NOT viable. If you were not aware of this point then you missed a lot of the discussion with Moncie, Chicky, Bitter, Vladdy et al. That is precisely their point.
And that is a direct and blatant contradiction of the statement that "artificial life support means nothing unless a fetus is viable" because by definition (THEIR definition)if it needs artificial support it is NOT viable.
You gettin this ?
Spot on and thanks for posting. The pagan arguments about viability seem to change with the phases of the moon. It may have somehing to do with their pagan ritual of sacred howling they do the night of the new moon. Another one of biters godesses

Of course, it's antiquated and meaningless--ALL of it. You think it's good that a rape victim had to live with her rapist by law? BTW--there were no castles in david's time. David also had a male lover, jonathan--the only real love story in the book.

Knock it off Vlady. You were not around during the time of King David. The only person qualified to talk abut those issues is grumpy, David's old pal.
