It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter.

I don't care for the German gas chambers.
But I do care about the human beings that were inside it.
In your lame assed attempt to make a point with spontaneous abortions where the living human does not survive, grown human beings also meet with death from natural causes.
That in no way is relevant to deaths of humans through the intentional act of another human.
The former is innocent. The latter is murder.
You are a common moron, and should not try to argue with someone who is obviously in better command of logic and fact, as I am.
You pro-aborters on here need to recruit some talent.
I see, now you compare a womans uterus and a woman to an inanimate object in your non-command of logic and facts.

Your pretend concern for humans is comical at best.

Grown humans are not taking up house inside another person, if they tried they would be subject to that little thing called self defense and may very well end up dead and not by natural causes.

You have serious issues with women, I would see someone about that before you land in prison again.

You earlier said you do not defend that right.
Make up your mind.
And no, you DO NOT support a woman's right to make her own decision regarding her own uterus, and neither does anyone else.
I can give you a list of things a woman can do with her uterus that nobody defends.
You do not know what you support.
If you know, you can't say it.
Still waiting for that definition of life.

Defend and support are not necessarily mutually inclusive.

I'm not defending anything. But I do support a woman's right.

You are wrong.

Have no fear, she will not abort you. You are safe for now, later you may become a victim, but not just yet, and not here on this thread.

Oh wait, are you playing the "I am a poor, poor wittle victim" card?

If so, carry on. We could do with a hearty laugh

Hey Jackass, what makes you think that we are responsible for the things that men and women, whom we do not know, or that we have not ever known, or that we will not ever know, choose to do?

Just when was the last time, you saw "abortion" on a ballot?
No need for that Jackass, it's legal.

But if it were on a ballot(which are secret in the USA), it would pass in overwhelming numbers. Because Tea Partiers, Republicans and Christains all have daughters, who can't have pregnancies before marriage. LOL!
So are you going to answer my question? I answered both of yours.

What makes you think the young women group of the morman church is insanity? Don't you believe in freedom of religion?
https://www.lds.org/young-women/personal-prog...
So you don't want to answer as to why you'd call a foetus, a woman? And yes, the Morman church is insanity, as are almost all churches, but even so none of them call feotus's women. And yes, Inot only believe in freedom of religion, but freedom from religion. Your choice of legal insanity is none of my business.

You are wrong.
The statement you are grasping for is not that "defend" and "support" are not mutually exclusive.

What you want to say is that "defend" and "support" are not related or synonymous.

That is the case you are trying to make.

You just don't know how.

As to your case itself, it doesn't matter much that you can't make it, because you lose anyway:

Thesaurus.com
http://thesaurus.com/browse/support

Main Entry: support
Part of Speech: verb
Definition: defend, advocate belief

So, in summary, when you try to equivocate your position by claiming you "support" but do not "defend" the right to choose,...

...you are lying.

You are out of your league.

Clarification of what? Pointless how? The definition I provided shows that a woman is a female human of any age. Which is clarifying my opinion to be true. What makes you think I need to clarify your narrow minded, hatemongering opinions?
You liar. Woman means a degree of maturation

A pro-lifer calling a pro-choicer a baby killer is tantamount to a pro-choicer calling a pro-lifer an anti-choicer, or a womb-Nazi etc. What makes you think you are the only ones that should be allowed to choose what you call people? Furthermore, since abortion does kill babies the term baby-killer is appropriate, while the term pro-choice is utter nonsense.
So now you are claiming that Kitten has had an abortion? You are pure dipshit, you know that don't you?

You have issues with all women. It shows in your every post. You are a misogynist and a control freak.

Being as both her and I have been pregnant and given birth WE DO know a lot. Much much more than you sitting on the sidelines with no control.

Actually, they do know more than you. I'd wager every woman knows more than you about everything.
