Same old excuses b.s. Does the aborted baby get a choice if we are letting 'others make their own choices'?
Going with your line of reasoning, because we have plenty of kids that need adopted we should just make sure we have an option to kill them as a solution? What if someone makes the call (gee, maybe another Hitler type) that we have enough of one specific race, are we going to kill them off?
It's murder. Murder definition = taking another human's life. Exactly what abortion is.

No actually Murder= the UNLAWFUL taking of another's life. Abortion is legal. Perhaps "killing" was the term you were looking for...

Hitler actually made it illegal for German woman to obtain abortions so...yeah just saying maybe you should check the facts first.

a seed is not a tree = a fetus is not a baby and if the male who made the fetus does not step up and take FULL responsibility, then arrest him for 'murder' too...

For now it's legal.....so yes, killing would be the proper term. Murder/killing, same end result = death.
Hitler and his abortion history pertain how to checking facts???

You want to have freedom and responsibility for your own body, but cant be responsible enough to get on birth control? How is that the child's fault? They didnt choose to be concepted, YOU did and I am sure if we all want individual freedom THEY would choose NOT to be aborted. It is a person, anyone who's ever seen an ultra sound or picture of a baby at a mere 4-8 weeks can tell it's a human being. Stop trying to excuse what is really is = death to a human being.

hey oreos7580...it should be a last resort, and yea at 8 weeks a fetus starts to take on the look of what it will become 'after' it is born (what would you expect really? and what is your point) no one is saying it is just another form of birth control, but that it is better for such a procedure to be safe when it must be done, don't judge until you are ready to step up and raise you some of these babies...talk is cheap...

This is exactly my point: "a fetus is not a baby" right? But yet you acknowledge that it looks (and functions) like a human being at 4-8 weeks but dont consider it a 'baby'? That is exactly my point, people who have abortions or consider them acceptable either a) dont have a conscience or b) feel that using scientific terms explains away the procedure and death of another human being.

Take a look at this and then let's see what you have to say: http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Why is it automatically the woman's responsibility to use birth control? 1. Some women simply can't take hormonal birth control and 2. What business is it of yours? concepted? haha, I think you mean Conceived- at least I hope you do- I didn't know a fetus could be a concept. It's definitely humnan, I don't think anyone is arguing that but on the traditional ultrasound a 6 week old fetus looks like a peanut at best so I'm not sure what pictures you are talking about...

A) who are you are to determine another's conscience? or their motive or thoughts?
B) Fetuses prior to 21 weeks are not capable of feeling pain and most abortions occur long before that.

I'm really glad abortions were around when I was molested by a friend of my dad's when I was 15.
