don't put quotes around a term that the poster did not use. it's deceitful.
since abortion means the termination of a pregnancy your explanation why a post birth abortion is not possible, is accurate. please explain similarly how a post birth termination is not possible.
It's not "post birth termination." It's post abortion termination. Occasionally the fetus breathes after abortion so the surgeon cuts off the air supply to the fetus.

Self-defense is actually irrelevan as you describe it. It's the reasonable FEAR of danger that constitutes self-defense, and the FACT is that any pregnancy can go south at any time. The woman gets to decide what the extent of the risk might be, and whether she will accept the risk.

wrong twit. katie made it relevant when she tried to establish a self defense justification for abortion. she made the analogy, not me. and it failed, on every level possible.
abortion, since it involves killing human life, constitutes deadly force. your contention that since any pregnancy has the potential of going "south at any time", warrants the use of deadly force is horseshit. you don't get to exercise deadly force in the name of self defense on the basis of a potential threat. any person walking toward you on the street represents a potential threat. the vast majority however, are not threats at all. you don't get to shoot the person preemptively solely for the reason that you think he "may" pose a threat.
in the future weigh in on discussions only when you have a clue as to what you're talking about.

sorry but she said post birth abortion and post birth termination were the same thing. if you think she meant something else then raise the issue with her not me. in the meantime let her explain what she said and not what you think she meant, ok cowboy?

Wow, that is so cold hearted. Ever think that the Image and Likeness of God should be respected? You know abortion is destroying the Image and Likeness of God. So if you support abortion you are supporting a very, very evil act of destroying God's own Likeness and Image Even if the child is unborn or just born and takes a breath. Do you hate God so much you want to destroy God's Image?

You were talking about it in the criminal sense. Cptr and I are both discussing it in the medical sense. It's you who should, "...weigh in on discussions only when you have a clue as to what you're talking about."

Why so combative in your irrationality?
Have you missed the posts claiming abortion medically means pregnancy ending prior to term? Doesn't matter if it's by delivery or by D&E. Same/same.
Why so uptight?
Ain't she, tho? Gone for awhile and comes back just as bitchy as ever.

Not to mention she ignores what words you DID state very clearly that doesn't fit Lynne's agenda?
She hates me. And you. And Katie. And La (her faaaavorite!)

It's palpable.

Course she doesn't know us from years ago, so theoretically would have no reason to hate us so much...("I'm not Lynne! Really! I'm not!) lol

Why? Here you are, and you've never had a fu**ing clue in your tawdry little life.

Legally, there is no such thing as deadly force against a fetus, as the fetus is not a legal person. A woman--just like a man--can assess a medical condition and whether they wish to treat it or not based on risk factors; she loses no autonomy just because her uterus works.

"You know abortion is destroying the Image and Likeness of God."

So is your horrid faux-Christian personality. BTW, you have no proof there even is a God.

Well, I did phrase it badly. What I meant was that the poster I answered used both phrases to mean the same thing. And he DID use the phrase "post birth abortion" on one of the other threads he spammed with his nonsense question, and it was the first time he did so. Because of that, I knew what he meant by "post birth termination". And I responded to that.

self defense "is" a legal term. it's not a medical term. it's the term used to legally justify an action.

you made the analogy. don't try to hide from it now.

no he's not. you don't even know what my question was, do you? if you did then you'd never say he was answering it.

bitner said that post birth abortions and post birth terminations were the same, and that both were non existent. since i agreed that post birth abortions were indeed non existent, i asked her to similarly explain how post birth terminations were non existent.

grumpy was saying that they were not non existent. he was saying they happen.

so how is that possibly answering my question?

The last line of your posts asked and he answered. All that crap above is just crap, a distraction. Why so quarrelsome?
why so stupid?

phrasing it badly is an understatement.

but back now to the original question - should the termination of a living, delivered product of a botched abortion, be considered murder?

It's also used in the medical sense.
