“Yes. It's a civil government institution.” No its not.<quoted text>
Yes. It's a civil government institution. Anyone can say they're married. That doesn't make it so.
Murder is always illegal by definition. You can say that abortion SHOULD be murder, but you cannot say that it IS murder.
Of course. You can always believe whatever you want. People can think interracial marriage is phony too. Or marriage between non-virgins. Or anything else.
“Murder is always illegal by definition. You can say that abortion SHOULD be murder, but you cannot say that it IS murder.” I see. You have the idea that the federal government is what determines definitions. That explains why your thoughts are so disjointed and without true conclusion. Do you have a heart beat? If someone stops your heart do you have your life? A baby’s heart beats at 6 weeks of gestation… How many “abortions are performed AFTER the 6 weeks? Frankly I fear your answers because you put such a strong faith in government definitions.
Do you believe our Country is a democracy too?
