They differ in a whole lot more than that. You're just an ignorant fool. Pure and simple.

It is not a "woman's decision" it is a baby who has a right to life.
Cite the case, statute, or for that matter, the biblical verse that specifically and unequivocally states the unborn has a right to life.

No, it's not, not in any legal sense. The pregnant woman is, though.

That's the DoI, schmuck; it has no legal authority whatsoever....nor were the founders even thinking about fetuses when they wrote it.

But advocating murder under certain circumstances is OK...right Brian?

I approve abortion where the mother's life is at stake; consider if the mother has other children that require her care. It should be obvious to anyone who knows right from wrong, abortion to save the life of the mother isn't consensual, its medical necessity.
Having nuanced positions that accept change according to situation isn't hypocrisy.

My mom and dad created me and the DOI isn't law pinhead. IOW, you can't prove the fetus has a right to life.

A baby is a person because it's born. What you call a baby, isn't. If it was, it would have an independent right to medical treatment, which would be separate and apart from the mother. Even if medical treatment is required for the unborn, while it is in the uterus, it cannot be performed without the woman consenting to her being medically invaded as well.

The "baby" isn't a person; it isn't a human being; it isn't an "unborn child." It's nothing more than a parasite made up of human tissue, with the potential of life. Do not confuse the potential of life with a right to life. Before viability, there isn't any potential for life unless "mommy" says so.

That's not only a legal truth, but also a medical truth. Neither medicine, nor law, is subject to your pathetic sense of morality, or beliefs.

Go jump in the open ocean with 20 pounds of lead attached to your feet. I'll even take you there on my boat if you want. Well, maybe not; assisted suicide is illegal, although in your case, it would be justifiable.

I would say that, if she were planning to carry to term, she probably shouldn't do either. But, it IS her right, and it is legal.

Prolifers accuse Choicers of murder, but instead of hitting the (mainly) religious head on in an ethical fight to the death, they rely on tenuous quasi-constitutional filaments to hold together a loophole. Sorry, but Roe v Wade lends itself to gauzy metaphor.[Sighing wistfully] Soon arguments about regular old humanoid babes will seem child's play beside clamorous new clashes over eugenics, clones, neo-slaves, animal rights, bioengineering, and patented people. So hold on to your transvaginal mesh, it's going to be a bumpy night!

Yes and yes.

I don't care if she kills the fetus by abortion, or gives birth to a drunk with emphysema. I care she retains the right to do that, or be careful about her pregnancy and give birth to a healthy child.

I don't advocate changing the law or taking rights from women; my arguments are moral, not legal. I argue for good, encouraging mothers to murder their unborn children is evil.

Choose adoption, be pro-life.

Bullshit. You may not "vocally" advocate for a change in the law, but one does not have to be vocal to advocate for such. Just as there is something known as the lie of omission, there is also advocacy by inaction.

I've not seen one post of yours in outrage for the latest assault on women's abilities to obtain legal abortions in those states that have passed legislation requiring doctors who practice abortions to have hospital privileges, and how the hospitals in their areas are, arbitrarily and capriciously, denying them those privileges.

I've not seen a single post of yours taking a stand against those who believe the "rights" of the fetus trump the rights of the woman. In fact, you've taken their side in several occasions.

Besides, it is HIGHLY IMMORAL for one to argue that the actions of someone are immoral, simply because one does not agree with them.

It is also HIGHLY IMMORAL for you to call said action murder, when legally it's not murder.

In short, you're a hypocrite. You use your subjective definition of morality as both a sword and a shield. And that not only makes you a hypocrite, it makes you a f*cking p*ussy.

Morality is NOT objective. It is HIGHLY subjective. And to add to your list of "accolades," your refusal to accept that elemental truth, makes you an idiot.

If I become unwillingly pregnant, my happiness may include becoming UN-pregnant, prior to term.

If so, I shall pursue said happiness irrespective of your approval.

Au contraire. Yours is the pathetic response, my friend.

I asked you several straight-up questions......got any answers?

Do you even KNOW what's in it for you, to propound against a pregnant woman's personhood, reduce women to incubators, and negate our 14th Amendment rights during gestation?

Or do you just spout bullshit, in an effort to give yourself a mental chubby?
