    you're whole diversion into abortion is a red herring.
    First, it's not a diversion into abortion. It's exploring the reasoning behind her opposition to the death penalty. She has stated that she opposes the death penalty because "taking a life is wrong." And yet supports the right to abortion...which is taking a life. This really is not hard to understand, and it's not a red herring.

    she means a "a human being", and you know it.

    That doesn't change the fact that an abortion is "taking a life" which she seems to support while denouncing it when it comes to the death penalty. I'm not arguing (here) that abortion is right or wrong, I'm asking her to explain her statement.

    Irrelevant. She seems concerned with life. What you think she means is irrelevant, and if I were her, I'd be pissed that you insist on speaking for her.

    you know full well what she meant, and you're just playing games to bring up abortion in a non-abortion thread.

    It's stage of development has nothing to do with it being alive and "a life". The question that I put to Taxi, not you, is why does she have such a contradictory stance.

    You are ignoring the impact. I'm not arguing whether abortion is right or wrong. I'm asking her if she really believes that taking a life is wrong. This really can't be put any clearer, so you're just going to have to accept that you can not understand logic.

    there is nothing contradictory about being against the death penalty but supporting abortion rights.

    There is if it's because "Taking a life is wrong" is your reasoning. If it's because, say, you think that the states taking a life is simply vengeance and reduces society to the criminal's level, then you might have something.
