As soon as a woman walks into an abortion clinic with an abortionist waiting for her, I think its safe to say there is some 'premeditated malice' involved. As to the 'lawful' part it was once unlawful and now it is, which is true of any number of moral issues. It is lawful to stone women and Gays in some areas of the world also, but that does not make it right. There is also a deeply moral issue involved which the Left chooses, deliberately I feel, to ignore.Murder is, by all accounts, "The unlawful killing of one human by another, especially with premeditated malice."

No, it is the taking of a human life. That is the whole point of abortion so there is no wiggle room for semantics here. Unless there is human life involved there is zero likelihood of an abortion taking place. But you will argue the case anyway because pro abortionists tend to be really rather zealous on the subject.Abortion is neither unlawful nor based in malice and whether or not it is "taking a person's life" is arguable at best.
Okay, we will draw the line at persons who are sleeping but we can murder those who are unconscious. That should make boxing matches even more exciting. If that living thing inside a woman's womb is not a human being, what do you think it is? It is human and it is being.It's actually not like murdering someone asleep at all because that person has already developed consciousness. A fetus has the potential to develop consciousness, but it has not yet developed it. An embryo also has the potential to develop consciousness and yet it is certainly not a human being.
I don't think abortion should be made illegal because there are cases where it is essential to a women's mental and physical health. But I do believe if woman is healthy and able to bring the baby into the world it is hugely immoral not to. Counseling and options should be made available to any woman who is contemplating an abortion, as it is most likely the most important decision of her life. All of us, men and women, should have to meet our responsibilities and behave accordingly. We can't always just scrape our problems away.If you think it should be stopped great, I don't.
Yes, I'm familiar with this mantra.A fetus is not a person.
I'm pro life so naturally I would support human life in all its forms and believe babies have the right to be born. Although there are a few mammals who eat or kill their young, only humans rationalize it and rationalizing the taking of human life often tends to get tricky once it starts.That's exactly what you're doing.
Get serious! Lets not paint the Left as caring about other human beings, in the mothers womb or otherwise.. Their history is too well documented for them to ever claim the high road.Stop being dramatic. The left is generally anti-war and anti-death penalty because it against the taking of obviously human life. Please.
