Your vile ageist bigotry can only promote and increase preventible birth defects. Your crass disregard for the well being for others is a blight upon society.

When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her unborn baby. Alcohol in the mother's blood passes through the placenta to the baby through the umbilical cord. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and a range of lifelong disorders, known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). There is no known safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy. Drinking alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy can cause the baby to have abnormal facial features. Growth and central nervous system problems (e.g., low birthweight, behavioral problems) can occur from drinking alcohol anytime during pregnancy. The baby’s brain is developing throughout pregnancy and can be damaged at any time.
If a woman is drinking alcohol during pregnancy, it is never too late to stop. The sooner a woman stops drinking, the better it will be for both her baby and herself.

Easy to disprove that.
If it moves and its heart beats, its alive.

According to Obama, in an impassioned speech on the floor of the Illinois Senate, holding it in your hand with its heart beating, its little lungs heaving, it still isn't a human being, not a person.
All that aside, your religious blatherings have no foundation in a court of law and North Dakota doesn't need Michigan's permission to do anything.
Duh, it needs the Supreme Court's decision. Way to turn out the voters for the Mid Terms.

That's why Rmoney lost the election. You're in the minority. Yet you want to count the votes of dead fetuses and ignore the votes of the living.

No, a live needs to breathe.

Besides, is a caterpillar a butterfly? Are they stages of caterpillars or stages of butterflies?

Is a sperm a stage of human life or just sperm?

Are going to ban masturbation too? We know the Church condemns it for the same reasons that it is against abortion.

So if a fetus has a heartbeat but no head, from a scientific and humanistic perspective, you think a woman should have to wait until it miscarries or give birth otherwise it's murder?

Outlawing abortion will not stop abortions, just make them dangerous and criminalized. Outlawing abortion is just waging open season on women forcing them to keep babies and relationships that they don't want, even in cases of incest and rape. You'll never get me to support that. I value humans more than protoplasm. Too many women know what you want and we won't allow it. The Red States are just going to turn out the voters against them in the Mid Terms. America supports Gay marriage and reproductive rights. Evolve.

Abortions should be criminalized and dangerous. Killing innocent people with abortions, or any other method is immoral and repugnant.

I see that you failed Bio 101.

"No, a live needs to breathe."

Are you saying that the fetus is dead?

"Is a sperm a stage of human life or just sperm?"

It takes the joining of sperm and egg to form a new human life.

"Besides, is a caterpillar a butterfly? Are they stages of caterpillars or stages of butterflies?"

Just as the caterpillar is a stge in the life of a butterfly, a fetus is a stage in the life of a human.

"Are going to ban masturbation too?"

Why should we? A sperm without an egg is not a human life.

Abortion is legal because it is scientifically and morally more humane than the alternative. Get over it. You are in the minority.

Hahaha, you get over it. See here in the good old USA we have the right to work to change the laws that we don't agree with. Isn't this a GREAT country!!!
