    1) The baby was far enough along that it would have been illegal to abort anyways
    2) What's it called when the baby dies because the mom is killed and then is cut out of the womb?

    It didn't have a real name because you don't get those till youre born, I wonder if the press made up the name.
    supposedly She was going to name him Connor; however, the real reason is that by attaching a name to a fetus, you can get more sympathy votes for a bill.
    there used to be something here, but not anymore

    your an idiot. At the stage of her pregnancy abortion was an illegal option, so how the hell.....oh never mind youd miss the point anyway.

    how did they even come up with a name for the unborn baby.
    Its actually quite common to have a name picked out beforehand. And I've heard that one step in therapy for women that have miscarried, aborted, or had a still birth (or lost their child before birth in some other way) is to name the child.

    Oh yeah: Hey stupid (Ev) its called choice. While I do not support abortion, I do see a big difference between abortion and a 3rd party murdering the child.

    Abortion is a fancy name for population control.

    What?

    Anyway. Can abortion be interpereted as murder? IMO, No. But that answer lies entirely in what you believe about the creation of a human being. Medically speaking the fetus is not yet a pain feeling, lively human being when its within the abortion legal time frame.

    Should women have a choice? Absolutely. Dont give me that "she shoulda been more careful" crap either, because nothing but abstenence is perfect, and abstenence makes you a prude.

    Shoould she have a choice once "life" is established medically? Hell no.

    Save the case of rape: Didn't she make a choice to engage in sexual activites which have been medically shown to be the number 1 cause of pregency?
    because nothing but abstenence is perfect, and abstenence makes you a prude.
    Hmmm I don't think anyone here would call me a prude.
    Medically speaking the fetus is not yet a pain feeling
    That means we can kill her because she doesn't feel pain


    edit: This is fun

    I think we're past the point where every sexual encounter should be required to produce a child. Are you also against the use of birth control?

    No I'm not against birth control in the least. I also have no problem with the "morning after" pill. But I do find the choice argument flawed. Again saving rape, a women chooses to engage in sex and she gets pregeant. Choice - possible result. Now that child never asked to be concieved it had no control over the situation. But a women can choose to kill that lifeform. Something just seems kinda screwy to me.
    Oh and for the record I completely support abortions in case of medical neccessity. I'm also sympathetic to those who get abortions due to rape, incest, or medical malformation of the baby.

    edit: Oh I would really like to see some proof of RoD's claim that they can't feel pain. I haven't seen anything one way or the other in that regard.

    Again, then, it's up to the definition of what you consider a life form.

    Re-read the sentance. I said I was sympathetic, it doesn't mean I agree just that I can understand. And by malformation I was refering to serious problems (ie not developing certain organs).
    Again, then, it's up to the definition of what you consider a life form.
    Then what do you consider a life form? When the child is viable outside the womb? How viable? At what point during the pregancy does it go from a simple collection of cells to a human?

    You're going to hate this answer, but I haven't decided yet (not that my opinion matters at large anyway).
