Most 'foster kids' have foster families...it's the 'unadoptable' kids who don't even get that.

Most Foster families won't take on the ill, the emotionally damaged, or the 'wrong color' kids. Just like the inferts who think they're entitled to an infant, preferably one in the right shade of pink, foster parents are allowed to be picky about the 'quality' of child they deign to 'foster'.

Sorry, dear, but you did not present a "philosophy" that claims "a human" (noun) and "a human being" are not synonyms.
bHitler made a claim. I asked her to support her claim. She can't. And neither can you. Sit. Down.
I'm not trying to support anything.

The initial conversation you've been harping on forever (like Doc and his slimy bones) involved the philosophy of human being -- which included things fetal life is incapable of; like conscious thought, conscious movement, awareness of self, others, and surroundings. If fetal life isn't canine or feline or equine, etc., chances are it's human. But this does not equal human being.

You came up with the sophomoric dictionary definition to dispute this philosophical claim.

Therefore, you've made an erroneous comparison and have been wrong from the beginning. You need to find a philosophy of human being claiming fetal life is capable of awareness of self and others to prove anyone wrong.

And you have not done so. Instead, moronically, you continue to distract with your dictionary definition.

Quit wasting everybody's time with your juvenile antics. Play by the rules or go play somewhere else.

Induced and spontaneous abortion are the same. Both are the ending of pregnancy prior to term.
It isn't anymore the same than getting pregnant because you wanted to or because you were raped. even though the end result is the same.

You don't seem to have an ability to diferentiate between intention and beyond control.

Why should a child have to be either aborted or dumped? There are so many other options.
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.
So many options? LOL

<quoted text>Where have I promoted abortion?
Have you ever seen me post the address of an abortion clinic?
Have I ever recommended a particular physician for the procedure?
Do I ever suggest that anyone participate in an abortion?
No, no, and let's see.....no.
It is clear I support a woman's choice to do whatever she feels necessary with her own pregnancies. Gestation, raising, relinquishment or abortion.
It's also clear you're not okay with that, and have to claim I promote abortion above all the other choices. I don't JUST support abortion...but you'd prefer to ignore that fact and label me a proabort.(Which is fine with me. You don't mind that I label you a fetus worshiper, do you? Good... glad we settled that one.)
It's also clear that you believe abortion requires a justification on the woman's part.
I don't.
Try again?
It does seem that in a fair world, there would be a need for justification to take the young life of another human being.

That's why I would call you a pro abort and I expect that the human being in the womb, in your mind can be destroyed at any stage for any reason.

No, you can pick the words that you'd like to describe the "pro abort formula".
I'd like to know more about, and what you consider the "pro abort formula" to be, and does it directly oppose the fundie playbook that guides you?
Have a good night.
I would pick dogma.

In this article they do admit that it doesn't matter if it is a human being only the mother's right to kill it matters.

"Joyce Arthur is a founding member of FIRST, a national feminist sex worker advocacy organization based in Vancouver that lobbies for the decriminalization of prostitution in Canada. Joyce works as a technical writer and pro-choice activist, and is the founder and Executive Director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, a national pro-choice group in Canada".
In conclusion she (Joyce Arthur) states: "Individuals, not society as a whole, must choose what the status of a fetus should be, based on their personal beliefs, morality, and circumstances. And ultimately, this choice belongs only to pregnant women".
I think I'm going to follow her on Twitter lol.

I think it is immature and unrealistic to think that fetus in the womb is anything but a baby. It doesn't change. It is the same entity inside or outside, just more mature.
Here is your deceit. Fetal life undergoes physiological changes during the birthing process. This involves the heart and respiration so that newborn can survive outside the womb.

I don't know where you get your information because you never include a link but I don't think you are accurate.

This chart shows that children in the system who become eligible for adoption are adopted. Most within a year. Most are adopted by family members.

We know that. It's a great plan, don't you think? The mother carries the child until it is mature enough to live outside the womb and when all the parts are ready to work her body says time to get this child outside. Still the same child though, inside or outside.

How's my favorite supporter of the right to kill ?

Did you find any proof to back up your claim that I said Bitter supported abortion ? You said you were going to link me to my words and that I had done it so often it would be easy to find proof.
That was like two years ago. You've had more than enough time.
Nobody compared insects to children.
I'm pretty sure Feces/Effigy did. He's been using that "all life is the same" nonsense as far back as I can remember.
Induced and spontaneous abortion are the same. Both are the ending of pregnancy prior to term.
They're both technically considered abortions but they are not the same. They're not the same at all. If they were there would be no need to term them "induced" and "spontaneous". The mere fact that you include two different adjectives to describe them in and of itself points out their difference.

Intent and beyond control are not included in the medical definition of abortion.

A spontaneous abortion is an abortion so you saying "abortion is a willful act" is not entirely true.
"Spontaneous abortion" is a misnomer. Aborting anything requires conscious effort, therefore spontaneous abortion is an oxymoron.

A miscarriage IS an abortion. It's a spontaneous abortion. The result is the same in both that, and an induced abortion. The only difference is that for a spontaneous abortion, the woman's body makes the decision, for an induced abortion, the woman's mind makes the decision.
Right, only the mind can consciously kill a child in the womb.
