Okay, peri-menopausal it is. You're splitting (gray) hairs. Again.
May point stands:
"At that stage of human life, is Katie becoming less fully formed? Once she has made it through menopause, will you consider her 'not fully formed'?"
Next.........
You still have nothing but logical fallacies. If I was offering the benefit of doubt, I'd say you didn't realize you're asking the wrong question. Since I'm not, I'll say outright you're trying to make this a personal attack and appeal to emotion. Neither way is gonna score you any points, NR.

Liberals for the most part want a nanny state. Liberals for the most part want to keep spending/"investing" money we don't have. Liberals for the most part want cradle to grave government control.
So when I use the term liberal, I'm expressing disappointment that this ideology is leading us down the wrong path and, therefore, I am using it as a pejorative.
Criticizing ideologies is allowed. Personal attacks are not. I don't believe I've done the latter.
Of course you have.

When you use the term liberal, you are using it as a pejorative. You are doing the same with "pro-abortionist".

At least act like a grown up, and stop hypocritically whining when it's done to you.

"Since they are illegal, how do you save a woman's life now?"

I said they are illegal EXCEPT TO SAVE A WOMAN'S LIFE. Learn to read, Witless.

"Why is it safer to stick scissors into the brain of a half born baby?"

Because there is no danger of perforating her uterus. Also, if the fetus is has hydrocephalus, it saves the woman from the more dangerous C-Section.

Wrong.
Being pro-choice does not equal "pro-abortion".
And please, do not try to pretend now that you haven't been using the term "liberal" as a pejorative.
What else would pro-choice mean? A woman can either choose to have a baby or abort it. Not much room for interpretation.

There are many churches with slightly different doctrines.
Everyone thinking partial birth abortions are extreme is good to know.
Unfortunately, the president I assume you voted for doesn't.
If you were aware of the history of the D&X, you'd have a better understanding of why it was performed this way on doomed pregnancies. Reality is this procedure has not been reported performed for a few years now. You should be happy. You've gotten your wish. Just continue ignoring that later term abortions are usually done by the D&E procedure. And maybe be careful what you wish for in the future.

For heaven's sake.
If you are pro-choice you are, by definition, pro-abortion.
If you stand by a liberal ideology, you are a liberal.
Even though I have to believe many liberals have good intentions, the liberal ideology created what I call the politically correct poison in our schools and society and, instead of practicing tolerance, derisiveness and anger towards anyone who tries to live by a standard of moral conduct in our society or whose points of view differ from the politically correct and angry liberals. Then there's the hypocrisy. You don't even want to get me started.
And it begins at the top with a radically liberal president, is encouraged by a liberal mainstream media, and then filters down through liberal blogs to people like you who think this is the new norm.
I just call it as I see it.

Pro-Choice = Pro-woman making her own choice to carry to term or abort. Nobody said we had to like/dislike or approve/disapprove of her choice.

"...pro-woman making her OWN choice..."

Rape is a violent crime. It's not the victim's fault if she becomes pregnant.
According to the NYT, only 1% of abortions are due to rape, so it's a very rare occurrence. Even 1% is unfortunate but, for most pro-lifers, still one of the only three exceptions.
I asked, "What makes the zef conceived due to rape different than a zef conceived due to consensual sex? "

I asked because you characterized abortion as...

"the only thing that comes to mind is men directing children to get in line to the gas chambers because they were brainwashed to see them as non-humans too."

You see yourself as a Nazi because when you see the zef as a "fault", you're okay with terminating it.

I also asked you what do you think should be done with frozen embryos that no one has plans for. You didn't answer that question, either.

One more time.
When Romney ran against Obama, would you be for leaving Obama off the ballot given that Romney is your choice?
Now that I think of it, maybe you would.

Good job.
How have you managed to miss the many posts disputing this claim with objective fact the number of annual abortions has steadily decreased? You know, those ones with links and drawn-out discussions...?

"Partial birth abortions" are illegal unless the woman's life is in danger. Since you agree that a woman whose life is in danger should be able to have an abortion, how can you say they are "extreme"?
By the way, actual medical professionals have stated that this particular late term abortion procedure is safer for the woman than other late term abortion procedures.
Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. The Kansas Board of Healing Arts revoked the medical license of Dr. Kristin Neuhaus who was paid by the slain Kansas abortionist, Dr. Tiller, to sign off on late-term procedures. Neuhaus’ consent was required under Kansas law mandating a second professional opinion acknowledging that a late-term abortion was needed to avoid “severe and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function” of the mother.

Yet, she was sending women to Dr. Tiller for any reason, life-threatening or not.

There are physicians who still perform them in spite of the law making them illegal in 2003.

http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/pba/whypbaperfor...

Governor Cuomo of New York recently stated he is going to push for all abortions to be legal at any stage of development.

The problem becomes once you open Pandora's box, it's almost impossible to shut it again.

It means that we support a woman's right to make her own choice.

Interesting, so the two options are continued pregnancy, or abortion, so why would you not say pro-childbirth/abortion?

You, yourself, prove that you are using the term as a pejorative.

If one is "pro-abortion", he/she would encourage every pregnancy be aborted.

Pro-choice does not encourage either abortion or carrying to term. It advocates the woman retain her right to make the choice.

Clear now? I'm sure you won't make that mistake again.

Glad to help. You're welcome.

Everyone knows political correctness has made us all a little crazy.

We all walk on eggshells afraid of saying anything that might be interpreted wrongly.

A sports announcer was nearly crucified for saying a woman in the stands was exceptionally beautiful even though her career took off because of the publicity.

Too many children call the shots in public schools because administrators don't want to make anyone mad.

Professional people have been fired from their jobs because they were smokers and wanted to smoke in their car on their own time during a break.

There's plenty more. It's all the same craziness.
