Actualy, she did some time back. You're free to go find it, OR to prove her wrong. You haven't done that thus far.

Here's a hint Lynniekins, its in regard to brain development.

But you wont bother, its not like you'd ever admit she MIGHT be right about something after all. You're so stuck in your hate filled agenda, you are simply incapable of ANYTHING resembling thoughtful discussion.

No, my first example had both women at the abortion clinic, but you're right! Women may choose which babies live and which babies die, in this country. It is all about the woman and not the baby.
What's interesting is how, if a woman were trying to starve herself to death, she would be force feed, by court order.
There is no way to force the average woman to remain pregnant, but my thought is why would we even have these ideas?
The main reason for abortion, is due to wanting pleasure with someone, that you wouldn't want a kid with.
Many don't ever think about their abortion, but as time goes by many many women and men do.
If both women were waiting to have abortions, they weren't far along enough in their pregnancies for there to be a fetal homicide charge. The rest of your post is just your personal opinion. Your opinion isn't relevant to anyone's pregnancy but your own.

"The Silent Scream" was debunked by the very physician performing the fetal surgery. There was no purposeful movement made by the fetus. It was all autonomic.
You guys seem to want the fetus to feel pain. You've personified fetal life to the point of equating it with being a newborn without understanding there are physiological differences between each. No fetus could survive outside the womb and no infant could survive inside the womb.
The ones who don't see this distinction for all its worth are the ones who give precedence to the fetus over the woman gestating it. There are no equal rights between fetus and woman. Woman's civil rights should and will continue to supersede that of any fetus she carries.
Notice how these folks refuse to reply to any post that points out the fact that, physiologically, a fetus in first term development cannot feel pain?

Actually I did, but in typical liberal fashion you weren't listening.
No actually you didn't. Your first response was to claim it was a stupid question, and your second didn't address the question at all.

3rd time's the charm with you apparently. Pity it takes calling you on your stupidity to get you to answer a simple question.
I said when it is in the womb, it is a "baby" and killing it there would be.
"it would be" what? Murder? Sorry, no, its not. Never has been, never will be.
I'm saying that when it is in its earliest stages (days or a week or two for instance) in a test tube that it is not a baby,
So lets make sure we understand you correctly - "when its in its earliest stages (days or a week or two for instance)" and its in the womb, it IS a baby then - correct?

But when its in a test tube its not - right?

But the SECOND it goes from that test tube to the woman's womb, it MAGICALLY becomes a baby THEN huh?

@@
it's an embryo under scientific study.
ROFLAMO Uh no. IVF is NOT "under scientific study" you idiot.
It would not be developed to 8-10+ weeks, injected with saline and then pulled apart a limb at time like an actual abortion does.
BWAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA!! ! Nobody asked you about anything "developed 8-10 weeks" - saline is not used in abortions (hasn't been for decades now) and nothing is torn apart in an 8-10 week abortion you hyperbolic bullshitter.

Is that clear enough for you to understand?
Clear enough to let everyone know you have no rational answer to what was a VERY simple question.

Carry on freak.

That is a vague staement. The law would be absolute and mean only in the case of death, no some vague "severe medical condition" that is used as an excuse for many late term abortions. You proabort pagans know that, and that is why you can't answer the question honestly.
Tommy, you're an idiot. Your comment was that there was legislation pending, when the FACT is that its been settled law for decades.

DOCTORS make the medical determination, not politicans. Deal with it.

This is why they keep trying to pass laws, so thet may obtain their ultimate goal of abortion on demand at any stage.
So show us where ANYONE is trying to pass ANY laws ANYWHERE that tries to obtain "abortion on demand at any stage".

Oh wait, you're flat out LYING again since no such legislation is pending ANYWHERE in the US.

On the OTHER hand, there's LOTS of legislation pending from your kind that would try to legislate your RELIGIOUS beliefs, and take AWAY the for women to make the medical decision to abort ANYTIME at ANY stage for ANY reason.

And I CAN provide examples of that easily.

LilLynne is ignoring Doc's argument.
I don't think she's ignoring. Just interpreting it differently.
I'm interpreting by the legal strict definition of viability. And as such, an artificial womb would be considered ALS. While the artificial womb would serve exactly the same purpose and function as a natural womb, it is man-made and not of the woman so by definition it would be considered "medical assistance".
His entire point is that if a physician determines ALS will give an infant any chance at survival whatsoever, then by defintion, it is viable.
Fairly accurate. You need to school Katie on this.
Although I would clarify by saying that if a physician determines that ALS will give an infant any chance at survival he will DEEM it viable. Whether it actually WAS viable will be determined in time.

Lets say it SLOWLY for the stupid boy.

The woman making a medical decision to abort, is not murdering anything or anyone. Its HER CALL, not yours , not ANYONE ELSES to make.

The man with a gun will ONLY be charged with two MURDERS if he ILLEGALLY MURDERS both the woman and her ZEF.

One is a crime. The other is not and never will be - PARTICULARLY in the first trimester. Deal with it already son.

Have asked you before but do not recall your answer.
What happens when the newborn dies anyway? Was it nonviable? That's my answer. So even if the physician deems a fetus viable, births it early, applies ALS, but the newborn dies anyway, then for all intents and purposes, it was not viable.
What say you to that, Doc, old boy?
I've said it already. See above, old girl.

You did not. You just said it is a good question.

"Plus mans laws and other mans law can differ across the world, but so can mans law and Gods law."

Which has nothing to do with the subject.

"A man can kill a woman that is pregnant, and be charged with two murders, and the same woman can pay another man to kill the life that is in her, and it would be legal."

Wrong. He would be charged with fetal homicide, and only in certain states. And even then, it's tied in with the death of the fetus during the commission of another crime. You're ignorant of the fetal homicide laws, and should educate yourself.

Now, how can any killing be legal and illegal at the same time?

Not sure if a fetus can feel pain or not, and unless it was the fetus being aborted, then I'm not sure how any would know, BUT we do know many women have felt alot of pain after having an abortion, all the way to suicide.

@@ If a woman committed suicide because she made a medical decision to abort, then she had MUCH more serious mental problems long before she aborted.

Not if they were waiting at an abortion clinic in Alabama or Arizona....just to name two. You are ignorant of fetal homicide laws.
What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having seen it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

It's a physiological fact that a first term fetus cannot feel pain. You can read that in any book on human development. You like to google. Do that. As for women feeling "pain, I assume you mean emotional distress. Some may, and that is sad, but each woman is responsible for her own decisions. It's very rare that a woman is forced or coerced into having an abortion. No one wants that and no one supports that.
