The question is-----------if the baby aborted is not human, why are organs being harvested from them. That doesnt seem to compute.

Any logical comments?

How’s this for logical? You’re barking up the wrong tree. The baby’s humanity is isn’t what matters. What matters is the woman’s right to self determination. Her right to decide what to do with her body.

1. Fetus (the correct legal definition), not baby.
2. Fetal organs are not harvested.
If you’re trying to make a point, at least be factually correct with your argument.

"Pro abortion types" - that would be those who oppose sexual education and contraceptive availability, yes?

Regardless, babies are not aborted. A foetus is not a baby. But you already knew that.

If she decided she didnt want a baby why didnt her and her pardner be responsible and have safe sex???? Killing a baby is murder and for the reason she and her pardner were not responsible???????????

I'm pro-life but I don't think government is the solution to the problem of abortion. It seems that I'm more conservative than you on this point.

Even if you make abortion illegal, there are various ways for people to still get unsafe abortions. Even if you make various exceptions for rape or incest, some people may not be able to prove they were rape. They have to get government permission to have their abortion. Maybe they can't admit they were raped.

Government bureaucracy may not be the best way to handle such personal decisions.

Why not try to change people's minds about abortion rather than coerce them with government threats of prison?

Re: A great question for pro abortion types

But sadly these days it seems women are so self centered they would rather live and kill their baby.
I would rather live...maybe not you

I'm against abortion, and I'd never have an abortion but I respect the rule of law and Roe v Wade is the law of the land. I do believe that it's a woman's right to choose what she does with her body. Not everyone in this country shares religious beliefs but we want to shove our own beliefs down everyone else's throats. That's not our right to do. This is a free country and people have religious freedom or they can choose to have no religion at all. Trust me, there's some very fine people that have no particular religious beliefs but they do believe in the 'golden rule' and follow it better than a lot of 'religious' people out there. If there was legislation passed that dictated what men could do with their semen, men would be marching on Washington with torches and pitch forks. As a matter of fact, being an old Bible study student, there is a passage in the Old Testament about 'spilling ones seed on the ground'. So there is some religious precedents set forth in Genesis that forbids men to do some things with their 'seed'.

Oh, here it is:

Genesis 38:9, "And Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so it came about that when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground, in order not to give offspring to his brother."

Guess what God did to Onan? Right, God killed Onan for wasting his seed on the ground. Well gee, all you religious conservatives, let's make it illegal for you to do that, shall we?

It has human DNA, it is not technically a baby so your statement is based on a falsehood.

As regards unborn children that’s probably largely a fantasy. Women have been aborting children in some fashion or another since the dawn of time.

Once the child’s born and they’ve formed an attachment - that’s a different story.

I don't know ANYONE who is "pro-abortion"

MOST Americans are pro CHOICE

Baby isn't aborted - it's a fetus, & that's by the holding of the US Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade, 1973 CE. Essentially, the SC holds that in order to be a person - from a legal POV - the fetus has to be born - that is, be a baby.

The fetus isn't a person, & so has no rights. & therfore, the woman can elect to have an abortion, up until the fetus is viable.

The humanity of the fetus was never in question, & the SC didn't rule on that, TMK.
