Addressing the elephant in the womb


#986

He didnt say it did


#988

But it does refute your statement that its separate from the woman.


#989

Whether it is lawful or not is determined by the justification under law of the taking of that life.

I shoot someone to rob them, no justification under the law.

I shoot someone robbing me at knife point, completely justified under the law.

The first is a murder, the second is a justifiable homicide as determined by law.


#990

It is in the intended habitat for that stage of life. As I said, earlier choices between two people created the life.


#991

Ok then i ask again, why do you keep bringing up the scientific definition of life?


#992

It is separate and apart. The umbilicus attaches to the uterine wall, it’s natural habitat.


#993

Again, try following the conversation, I’m not going to rehash it for you.


#994

And under the law, as determined by law, abortion is currently legal.


#995

Where have I said otherwise exactly? Can you provide a quote?


#996

I am. You havent explained why a fetus being labelled scientifically human is relevant. Feel free to link to the post that i missed.


#997

Where did I say you said otherwise? I was simply making a point that “as determined by law” doesnt really mean anything in this debate. This is a philosophical debate. Not a matter of fact debate.


#998

It’s been explained in great detail, if you haven’t got it yet I can’t help you any further.


#999

Ok. I didnt see the explanation so my conclusion is that you havent explained it.

And the woman gets to choose if she wants to keep it there.


#1002

So you continue to show that you want to not only control women’s bodies, but you want to control when and why people have sex…based on YOUR beliefs.


#1003

Which, again, goes back to the woman’s choice…doesn’t it?


#1004

Under U.S. law, yes. But we are not discussing whether or not there is a law. We are discussing whether it is right, morally, to take an innocent life.


#1005

Nothing in the Constitution justifies the government controlling a woman’s body.

I appreciate you sharing your opinion.
