Yes, your side has made that argument for the past 40 years following Roe vs. Wade. But you have not been able to get many folks to change their minds and agree with you. Our country continues to be evenly divided on the question of legal abortion.<quoted text>
abortion is murder.
What is the basis of your belief that abortion is murder? The old testament doesn't treat it that way. If you read Exodus 21:22-25, if a pregnant woman miscarries because of an attack, the attacker is fined. If they regarded it as murder, the attacker would be killed.
"22 When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that there is a miscarriage, and yet no further harm follows, the one responsible shall be fined what the woman’s husband demands, paying as much as the judges determine. 23 If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."
