It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter. On Wednesday, Richard Dawkins, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, posted a provocative tweet about abortion: With respect to those meanings of "human" that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.

2.No, I'm not wrong. My post had NOTHING to do with Dawkins, but was about a word definition.
3.No, it was not relevant to killing. It was, once again for the stupid boy, about a word definition.

[edited for stupidity removal]
You are lying.

You employed a "definition" equating the human being in the womb with a mouse fetus.

You did so on a thread about the controversy of abortion.

Nobody is foolish enough to miss your implication.

You disqualified yourself from intelligent debate, not that this is a recent event with you.

From here forward, you do not merit debate, but only ridicule.

How?

Yes, it is killing, the same way amputation is killing. The same way removing any organ such as the spleen or gallbladder is killing. It is not taking a life though.

Do yourself a favor, and look up the medical definition of abortion. That way, you won't look so foolish.

I gave the definition, because the other poster had given the wrong one. Period.

Your desperation is pathetic.

Now you are either being purposely obtuse or you misunderstand the words being used.

Certainly a woman can abort her pregnancy. Just as you would want your family members to do in certain cases. Since you have admitted that you wanted your own female family members to have the option and choice you cannot logically argue that other women should not have that option.

You are a liar.

An amputation is removing tissue with the same DNA identity as the organism from which it is taken. That organism remains alive.

Not so with abortion. A unique life is terminated, or killed.

If it is not a "life", how could you kill it?

You pro-aborters are uncomfortable facing what it is you support.

So you have to lie about it.

It is the same mental gymnastics performed by Nazis at the furnaces where they burned Jews.

You are a liar.

I admitted I "might" want such, but qualified it by saying I did not know, since I have not been in that situation.

You are a repetitive liar.

The point of such weasel phrases as "aborting pregnancy" is that they are euphemisms to disguise the true nature of the event.

Your resistance to this truth reinforces you being either stupid, or a liar, which we already know is true on both counts.

Is there anyone on board who could support the pro-abort side of this question intelligently?

They have not shown up yet.

It is certainly not you.

Really?

Provide a list of people convicted of murder for amputating a limb.

Give the U.S. Supreme Court cases litigated concerning the legality of amputations.

You are a moron.

Obviously not.

And no, I don't lie. The truth is always more interesting, not to mention easier to remember.

How many children do you have again?

Which "university" did you teach A&P at the "university level"?

Was that before, or after you were incarcerated as a violent felon?

Or was it during the time you were a ballplayer?

LOL, you're pathetic.

Do you think that laws are based on science yet? Nope, they are still based on subjective emotions, not logic and reason.

Your assertion that killing a human being is not different than an amputation is what you call "science and reason"?

Even the laws are not that stupid, thank God.

By the way, your claim implies that legalization of abortion is based on "subjective emotions".

You're out of your league, KittenKiller.

I have caught you in multiple lies.

Then you compound them with another lie.

As you just did.

And then you change the subject.

Do you know someone who could help you argue the pro-abort side honestly and intelligently?

I find your intellect insufficient, not to mention your veracity.
