You mean fetal homicide laws? Easy. They are based on the woman's right to keep or terminate her pregnancy--nobody else has a right to do so, even a criminal. Many such laws, btw, don't even come into play unless the fetus is viable--which extends into the RvW allowance for state's interest.

EVERY such law contains language differentiating it from abortion, btw.

She can say anything. But if you are going to talk about a medical procedure, you need to use medical terminology. What would be aborted is a female fetus (depending on stage of development, that may not even be established.)

She could say "it's a girl" long before she is born. Perhaps instead of saying baby which you object to, we can say boy or girl.
We could say reasonably that the woman aborted a girl.

And this is nothing but deflection on your part, unless you are fine with her making the choice to have an abortion if she DID use protection. If not, then there is no point bringing it up.
You liberal clowns are always sidestepping accountability. What a hoot. Their would be no need for the 95% of abortions as contraception if the retards would just use protection.

You can't find a law on the books that says a double murder is killing a fetus, it is killing another human.

I'm not a liberal, no matter how many times you say it.

I'm not sidestepping anything. If you're not fine with abortions done on women that DID use protection, then there is no point in bringing UP using it.

0% of abortions are done as contraception. Contraceptives PREVENT pregnancy, not terminate it.

Damn, you're dumb.

It's funny that people lecture us about abortion then turn around and advocate for lax gun laws, ridiculous Stand Your Ground Laws, resulting in deaths of thousands of living breathing human beings. Hypocrites.

More are killed in black on black crimes due to gang warfare. With media pimps like Obama, Sharpton and Jackson stiring the pot, there may be even more. By the way, the law will prove out that it saves lives, not takes them.

Accountability? For a biological process? You idiots try to pigeonhole everything into your narrow precepts.

Sounds like racism to me......you and Obama want someone to hold your hand and pay your bills. I thought blacks wanted out of slavery.

I'm white, idiot. I pay my own bills. The subject was accountability, not remuneration.

Keep posting though. Just like those monkeys typing to create shakespeare, you eventually may type something on-topic and correct.

Obama aides defend Russia over Romney...Well, at least the libs donít hide where their loyalty is.

William Ayers:'I get up every morning thinking ... today I'm gonna end capitalism', YES YES BILL, WE KNOW YOU SAID YOU DIDNíT GO FAR ENOUGH WHEN YOU BOMBED THE GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS AND KILLED AMERICIANS. It shows how close you and your Marxist friends like Obama really are hell bent to destroy the US.

Oh please, your bigotry has no place here. There are people who are passionate in their belief about the right to life. So much so they are trying to impose their beliefs on the courts.

The ultrasound law should have been struck down as it is not the state's affair to dictate treatment. The govt. must remain out of the doctor/patient relationship until the fetus becomes viable.
