The bible also says that the moon produces it's own light, so it's accuracy isn't exactly spot on.
The bible says man is made is made from dust, too (or was it just Adam?), but there is no evidence of "mr dusty" anywhere.
Its all according to how you wish to interpet the bible.
I've not read where it says the moon produces its own light, but the moon does produce light.
All must come from somewhere.
Even the sun must have some "source ",have you ever wondered how the sun can continue to burn and burn, yet never burn up?

Do you realize how big the sun is?
How much energy it takes and gives.

How the earth just floats around, along with all planets.

Prove adam wasn't made from dust.
After one dies, what happens to their body?

Given enough time, they go back to dust.

With all the amazing things in the world, it makes me wonder why people dumb it down to the very basics.

Banning all third trimester abortions unless the woman's life is threatened is already how it's set up. Most states have restrictions and strict guidelines for these unfortunate events.
Why wouldn't I support a federal ban? Because women would now have a duty to die for the country. Their fetus took precedence over their life. Physicians would be too hesitant to perform an abortion lest they get prosecuted for it.
Catholic countries allow women to die all the time. Their fetuses, too. That what you want for the USA?
Is it murder when the woman dies due to lack of abortion when ending the pregnancy would've saved her?
Most of the doctors that practice in the US are from other
countries. They pass a test and they are allowed to
practice here. Women are being raped everytime they are
being examined. If a women dies in childbirth, it is Gods
will. He takes her life.

So, you're saying he's saying "how" the egg is fertilized determines whether or not it's demise should be categorized as murder or ??. Or what?
hmm....so if an embryo is fertilized in a petri dish, then is implanted and begins to gestate, aborting it would not be "killing a baby" -- per his criteria. It's only murder if the sperm meets the egg because a man and woman have been fckin.
So long as it's consensual, I guess. Maybe those embryos are "less" natural, less "deserving" of protection or of needing his voice because everything about their conception was artificial. Does he think the embryo is artificial, too? I dunno. It makes no sense to me, STO.

You might as well be from another country, too, if you think secular society is going to stand for women in the 21st century dying during childbirth because "God willed it" when in reality what happened was abortion was criminalized.

PS I wasn't raped last time I was examined. So your claim is a bit exaggerated.

Yes, I'm trying to show, just how dumb it is when people come up with all kinds of stupid reasons why killing an unborn child is ok.
There are people who have things frozen, but this is not normal and has nothing to do with the average abortion.
I was just curious, if any thought the aborting of a viable fetus was considered murder?
Most abortions are done, on a just becouse I can, and it is legal, bases.
Under the direction of "safe sex ", we have more and more kids having sex.
When you have more people having sex, you have more pregnancies, when you have more pregnancies, you have a need for more abortions.
Aborting a baby, who has its own heart, is legalized murder, and not like any other medical procedure.
Well, that's just one opinion. It really is a medical procedure, like any D&C.

But then, we know you dont give a shit about actual discussion, you'd MUCH rather dismiss anything ANYONE that's on your personal shit list as being "ridiculous" even tho its reality.
I was talking about viability being at 8 weeks being ridiculous to creat a hypothetical about, you ignorant buffoon. Stop trying to help your friends, because you only prove you aren't following what's being said because you have an irrationalk need to prove me wrong, when you don't know what you're talking about.

"So anyone who had an abortion before abortion was legal was a murderer?"

Abortion has never been considered murder in this country, just an illegal abortion.

"Anyone who has an illiegal abortion today is a murderer?"

No, they've just had an illegal abortion. Even Gosnell has not been charged with murder for the illegal late term abortions he performed, but for the woman who died, and the infants he killed.

"As long as it is done according to the law, it it not considered murder."

Forget we're talking about abortion for a moment, and share with us all how any killing can be legal and illegal at the same time.

"So as long as it is legal, then it is ok, correct?"

Who said anything about "okay"? I said it's not murder. And it's not.

"This is a fact that has been true throughout time, no matter what it is, if it was legal to do then it was ok to do, or it is up to each person to decide if it is right or not."

It is not a "fact" that anything legal is "okay". That is a subjective perception, not objective.

What it IS, is legal for a person to choose to do. And the fact is that murder is a legal term for illegal killing. Killing that is legal therefore, is not murder.

"Viability is about a determition made at a certain gestational point as to the potential of a fetus surviving outside of the womb."
With ALS, per Doc.
The point at which a fetus is "viable" has changed, IF one considers medical technology today as opposed 30 years ago.
Medical technology may one day include an artifical womb.
So, your ad homs aside, when is a fetus viable?
Yes, with ALS, per Doc. But that's not what Katie understands. She's talking about viability of a newborn infant, which is different than viability of a fetus. She's the one not grasping the distinction.

"Artificial womb" is immaterial to a discussion on viability. You placed viability at 8 weeks in your hypothetical, and that's not going to happen.

Hypotheticals that have no basis in truth are ridiculous. Yours included "viable" when human life goes "from embryo to fetus" which = 8 weeks gestation. Not a realistic basis and is why your hypothetical is irrelevant.

No fear "lilrabbitfoofoo". Although most PL define the beginning of life at conception, an "embryo" that is conceived, studied, and frozen in the very first stages of development, in a test tube and not the womb, would never meet the legal or scientific definition of "viable". Now considering that I am just one of 320+ million people in our country, here's where the nuance comes in on my opinion. That circumstance is different then an embryo that begins it's conception in the womb as a result of mans natural connection with women. Isn't that just crazy? Even crazier is I believe that unless the mothers very life is in jeopardy from the developing fetus that to abort the baby is not an option. Now this is the craziest of them all "lilrabbitfoofoo", I'm sorry, but that name alone makes it difficult to take anything you say seriously. Just saying it out loud paints the most ridiculous mental image. My apologies, I digress. In the case of rape and incest, that better happen in the first trimester, with the abortion being considered murder legally and charges filed against the rapist for that death.
Really well said, including about the name.

You didn't answer the question. You said abortion was "killing a baby". So, do you equate disposal of a frozen embryo with "killing a baby"? Viability is irrelevant to this question.
That's right, viability is irrelevant to the question.

What's also irrelevant is that abortion has to do with a human life in utero being killed.

Further, if there ever was a time where a fetus was gestating in an artificial womb, YES, aborting it would be killing that human life. Not sure what answer you're expecting from PL.

She copies my words "physician determines fetus is viable" but doesn't understand what these mean as she rides my a$$ and demands I prove what I am saying or bow down to her highness. Even worse, when coming up behind her buddy Doc, she doesn't understand what he's saying (although I'm sure she's clicking those icons in his favor).
Didja see where she told me to prove Doc is PC? How crazy is that? Doc can confirm or deny himself. He's always claimed he's PC, though I see him as PL holding exceptions for life of woman.
Katie: "She copies my words "physician determines fetus is viable" but doesn't understand what these mean as she rides my a$$ and demands I prove what I am saying or bow down to her highness."
WHERE did I copy those words liar? You made a claim and once again you can't substantiate it so make excuses and play victim. Your act here is old and boring.

Yes, YOU claimed Doc said he was PC. I expected you to b able to prove where he said that about himself. Can't do it, just say so, bonehead. Funny, I can prove my claims of what you people have said, by providing the posts in which you said it. You make claims and can't back one of them. As far as I know, he's always claimed to be PL and holds exceptions for rape and life of mother. His friend Tap is PC.

Just goes to show anyone who's paying attention and who cares about integrity in discussion, that you don't pay attention and have no integrity in discussion.

If you read my post again you will see that I was asking about frozen embryos, and if that poster believed disposing of a frozen embryo equated to "killing a baby". That poster had already stated that abortion was "killing a baby".

You have mixed up two separate conversations.
