Consciousness is of no relevance, and it's a pain to type.
Why keep mentioning it?
Because it's part of my whole argument. As such, it IS relevant.

No, she's terminating the pregnancy. You said so yourself a minute ago.
She's not making an decision for an alternate site other than her uterus for sustaining the pregnancy.
LOL, your desperation is pitiful. You're obviously dizzy from all the spin you're putting on this argument.

She is making a decision for her own uterus, pregnancy, circumstances, morals and body. There, better?

No, because the fetus isn't her body, for one. It has it's own body.

Inside hers and attached to hers and using hers. It is NOT separate. Which makes her decision about HER body, pregnancy, uterus, circumstance and morals.

You may hold the OPINION that the decision is not about her alone, but it is only an opinion. One that binds no one else.

It's still it's own organism distinct from the woman.

It's not my opinion that said organism is terminated and expelled in an abortion. That's a fact. Abortion providers think this is so.

I'd get rid of it.

Consciousness and dependence aren't characteristics of human life.

No, that was me making an entirely different point.

I have never ignored the fact that the embryo/fetus dies as a result of an abortion, spontaneous or induced.

What's your "entirely different point"?

All I know from you is that it's not about tonsils, although you mentioned them more than once, nor is it about consciousness or dependence, although you've mentioned them more than once, nor does it involve the fetus dying, even though we're speaking about abortion.

All I did was mention components of your argument. It sounded just as "deliberately obtuse" the first time when you brought all that up.

Your position is (I believe) that the abortion decision is one the woman makes a decision for herself, while simultaneously maintaining that the fetus acted upon in the decision she makes dies.

Have I paraphrased you accurately?
