"According to Adopt America there are 130,000 children in the U.S. foster care system WAITING TO BE ADOPTED."
[QUOTE who="Ink"]<quoted text>Why should a child have to be either aborted or dumped? There are so many other options.</QUOTE>What other options do you mean? An unwanted child is either aborted or put up for adoption. Am I missing something?
[QUOTE who="Ink"]<quoted text>I assume you wanted to have your own babies and did, so I think it is disengenuious to berate other folks who want the same, a baby.
You are not using your reading comp skills. I do have two kids, and both were planned. What does that have to with UNWANTED kids? If anybody wants to have a family that's their right. I'm just saying that if a woman gets pregnant and does NOT want the child it would be more humane to abort it in the first month than "dump" it on child services where it may not get adopted.
You have to admit, the system if full of kids who will never be adopted.

Really?? This link is "pro abort dogma"?
Debating and commenting on various points becomes "pro abort dogma" to you and you wonder why people call you an extremist??
I see now that you will go to any lengths to support your position,, including the misrepresentation of what a website, you don't agree with or approve of, says. Then you tell us that this website (which you feel like callling dogma) is what we follow? That is extreme.
I asked Bit what she would disagree with and I'll ask you too.

Okay, "makes the decision" to kill the child. What's different?
Nope. Makes the decision to end the pregnancy.

You have a God-given right not to believe in God.
You will be one of those people who lived a life filled with debauchery and exhibit pathetic deathbed behavior. All mouthy and tough until the reality of death gets real.
Have it your way.
Good luck with that....

I answered the first two points but I guess I messed it up because it didn't break it down this time. Just read the quoted portion to your post above.

A human toe is not a human being. A DNA test determines genetic origin, not whether it came from a viable entity.

As I've asked multiple times before, if the answer can be "no" please provide a legitimate site to support your contention.
Remember, you denied pulling your statement from your arse. So, show us your source that corroborates your claim that "a human" (noun) and "a human being" are not synonyms.
TIA.

LOL oh Bit does this sound familiar?

Before going further, we need to clarify and interpret some anti-choice language. First, anti-choicers often confuse the adjective "human" and the noun "human being," giving them the same meaning. I am struck by the question they often put to pro-choicers: "But isn't it human?" —as if we secretly think a fetus is really a creature from outer space. If you point out that a fetus consists of human tissue and DNA, anti-choicers triumphantly claim you just conceded it's a human being. Now, a flake of dandruff from my head is human, but it is not a human being, and in this sense, neither is a zygote[3]. Anti-choicers will respond that a fertilized egg is not like dandruff, because the fertilized egg consists of a unique set of chromosomes that makes it a separate human being. But with cloning, a cell from my dandruff is enough to create a new human being. Although it would have my identical genetic make-up, it would still be a unique individual, because human beings are much more than our genes (I'll expand on this point later). Also, both a fertilized egg and a cloned cell represent a potential, not an actual human being. It’s a worn cliché, but it bears repeating—an acorn isn’t an oak tree and the egg you had for breakfast isn’t a chicken.

Since every pregnancy is potentially fatal, that would be 100%. Every woman gets to decide if the risk is worth the result--and if the result is worth the risk.

Why would you dump it on 'child services'? There are plenty of people waiting to adopt. You're child would have a home in a minute, if not before it is even born.

Like it or not, the bottom line is, women can abort a pregnancy and it is perfectly legal, and that will never change. Deal with it. Live with it.
