Yes, abortion terminates a pregnancy. Why argue otherwise?
<quoted text>
She wouldn't be pregnant if she wasn't carrying a child. So she gets rid of the fetus and therefore isn't pregnant anymore. You can't kill a prgnancy since it is a condition. You can only kill the child causing the condition.

Many catholic businesses employ people who don't adhere to catechism, because businesses need talent, not dogma to survive.

It's your choice not to work for a clinic; it's hers to keep her job.

I disagree. I wouldn't work in an abortion clinic for all the money in the world. If she had any scrupples she would not work for an org that she blames for all the ills of the world for all time.

You do realize that many abortions still occurred, right, Witless?

Still many unwanted children went to orphanages, and many of those were little more than abusive, neglectful holes in the wall, where the kids were left to rot until they got too old and left or were kicked out.

Take off those rose colored glasses, Naif.

Interesting a word from the 1300s has found its way into your doctrines. Kinda like the word Hell, eh?
I put the biblical context up for you. The important thing is he knows what he is talking about and I understand what is meant by the term.

You never will.

You CAN terminate a pregnancy. Remember, Witless, words have more than one meaning.

Context means nothing to you, does it?

They grew up, mostly in poverty, illness, and abuse. You know why? Because the well-off could ALWAYS get a safe, legal abortion. But the question concerned the foster system, didn't it?

Don't need or want you to correct me. You can try to put a pretty face on abortion but it is ugly business.
So is using false premises in trying to steal one gender's civil rights because you don't like one option available to them.

You have to terminate the fetus first, then the condition goes away.

You don't know any of that.

The foster care system takes care of children whose parents have failed them for some reason. Many times a whole family of kids are in need.

If a woman doesn't have an abortion, it doesn't mean she drops the baby off at the welfare office on her way home.

She doesn't just disagree with the RCC, she has a deep down hate for God. Doesn't add up as to why she would choose to be employed by them. Sounds hypocritical and phony on her part.

Really? So you deny that anyone is a "survivor of a botched abortion"? Good to know.

The fact is that the pregnancy ends when the fetus is REMOVED, not when death occurs. If the fetus dies for some reason isn't naturally expelled, it's known as what? An incomplete spontaneous abortion.

Yes, the pregnancy is a problem she needs to get rid of. NOT everyone considers it a child, period--nor do they need to. And yes, you do think you're smarter because you think other women are too stupid to see the fetus as a "developing human child"--even though that is your opinion, not a fact.
<quoted text>
Everything points to me being right.

Have you got proof that it isn't a developing child?

Of course these things are known. You just don't wish to see them.

You really should get your head out of your ass, and take off those rose colored glasses once in a while.

Don't be ridiculous.

One, you can't hate what you don't believe in.

Two, she's not employed by "God".

And who would have raised all the unwanted children resulting from unwanted pregnancies if those abortions didn't happen? You think the system cold handle hundreds of thousands of these kids a year?
<quoted text>
So you think the "unwanted" deserve a death sentence? There are(planned) children in homes today that feel unwanted and loved. They suffer. Should we put them out of their misery? How about the ones in foster homes/orphanges that will never be so called "wanted". What about them? Kill them all?

Pregnancy involves a developing child. When that life dies, the woman is no longer pregnant.

LOL If you remove the fetus, duh, it dies. I swear talking to you is like talking to a block of wood.
