"If a pregnant woman is in a car wreck(previability) and they have to remove the uterus to stop the bleeding that's killing Mom, would you call that an abortion? No you wouldn't."
Yes, in fact I would. It ends the pregnancy, does it not?
"Removing the tube that contains the embryo, is not a direct killing."
Yes, it is. Is there any chance the embryo will live? No, it dies, immediately, and so it IS a direct, deliberate killing of the embryo.
"Most likely it isnt alive anyway."
Nonsense. If it wasn't alive, the tissue would break down, and be reabsorbed into the woman's body. It's BECAUSE it is still alive and growing that it presents a danger to the woman, you moron.
"Nobody is doing any dance here but you in your attempts to justify killing AS CHOICE."
I am doing no such thing. You are the one, in fact, that is dancing all over the place to pretend the removal of an ectopic pregnancy is not the abortion that it is.
I thought pro aborts were fond of the phrase 'life saving procedure'. That seems appropriate to use in this instance.

<quoted text>Why the need to feel superior?
No need at all. Just stating an irrefutable fact.
You obviously agree as you've selected an inferior animal life form to hunt down and kill to provide consumable sustenance for your superior self.
I suspect you have a VERY deep-seated inferiority complex, mister.
Based on your body of work here it's obvious you suspect a lot that has no basis in fact, including the gender of those you respond to.
Please don't ever adopt a pet or a child.
*shudder*

Too late toots. Two biological children and two lovable dogs whom I value more than some ignorant humans (present company not excluded) but whom I nevertheless recognize as inferior animal life forms, even to those ignorant humans. As much as it pains me to say it....

All they talk about is tolerance. Where is the tolerance when someone because of religious feeling or just their own uncomfortableness doesn't want to be involved in a gay wedding. Why don't the gays just say okay I understand and get a photographer more willing? Why do they have to sue and ruin someone's life? To answer my own question, they have no tolerance for anyone else.

I don't think any one has to attend any ritual or rite at which they feel uncomfortable.

I wouldn't want to be taking pictures at a Wiccan May Dance with naked people running around. But I guess in this country I would have to.

That is exactly it. When you as a society accept the killing of unborn children each following step becomes easier as we are now hearing from liberal women that it isn't really a child until it can recognize parents etc.
Right now to them an unborn child isn't a human being because they don't have an awareness. Next it will be as offered now, a newborn, then it will be a mentally handicapped baby, then it will be an older person losing his facilties and finally any one deemed not productive or useful.
Sounds a little like Nazi Germany.
Only thing we know for sure is that these lame brains won't see it comming until they are one of the undesirables.
Oh, what melodramatic twaddle. You are a simpleminded thing.

I don't know any "pro aborts". And who cares what they'd say anyway? If they even really exist.

You can also use the phrase life saving procedure if you like. It's both. It's a life saving induced abortion procedure.

There, happy now, Witless?

Are you, too, going to stupidly deny that the embryo being alive and growing is what presents the danger to the woman?

No the Catholics would say okay there are plenty of other places to buy a cake and respect their right to run their business the way they want. Turn the other cheek.

I think you are one of the people that I said wouldn't notice until it was too late. If people can't be convinced that the baby in their womb isn't a baby then they can be convinced of anything.

You don't think. That's your problem. Rhetoric doesn't count. Your post was melodramatic twaddle.

Too late for what? Abortion's been around as long as pregnancy has, and for much of history it was not considered anyone else's business. It was legal in THIS country at it's founding, with no one tossing infants off cliffs because of deformities. Don't tell me, you're one of the witless ones who think abortion wasn't a factor until RvW, right? Stop spouting twaddle.

"Baby" is a slang term for infants, and infants are already born. It's also a term of endearment for just about everything under the sun. I call my youngest daughter "Baby", but she's nearly 20, and not really an infant. Neither is a puppy or a kitten that one might call a "baby". Neither was my husband's Harley when he jokingly called it "Baby". Neither is a fetus.

Call it what you like, just don't expect the rest of us to debate as though your chosen term of endearment is binding to anyone else.

Abortion was never condone and advocated for, like today along with the lack of respect for human life.

The rest of your post is an old rewrite that can't be taken seriously.

Right before she was cut off on the youtube video, she stated along the lines that unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies were a different experience than wanted/healthy pregnancies. Then she led to the age old question when life begins.

Then she stated what your PL side is giving her crap about, that life begins when the parents say it begins.

But right before the video clip was cut, she was in the middle of saying, "...[she] believes these emotions are what legislators are basing their laws on rather than science."

Would like to know what she said next. Wouldn't you?

You're wrong about abortion throughout history, actually. Even in this country, herbal methods were advertised in newspapers.

The rest I keep writing because it's true, but you people keep ignoring it.

You're discounting the term "baby" after making an abject ass out of yourself for saying "human" (noun) and "human being" are not synonyms?
Sit.

You've lost credibility long ago.

Like I previously said, a person can honor may day without taking part in the traditional may pole dance. Please feel free to continue to ignore thst and not take any iniative to understand what may day is.

If you really have to ask why, then I doubt you really know what type of discrimination, intolerance and persecution they've had to deal with.

Playa: "Practice your religion ON YOURSELF."
Sounds like you'd be happier moving to a country that doesn't have First Amendment Rights in its constitution.
Bye. Send a post card.
TIA.
Sounds like you'd be well advised to read the Constitution of the United States. The First Amendment provides for freedom of worship - not freedom to persecute others in the name of your deity. Worship whatever you want, and practice your religion on yourself. Leave the rest of us out of it.

I know that's not what you want to think the Constitution says, but that's what it says.

Eat it.
