    Yes, I believe you can.
    Nowhere in the Tanach are there any statements forbiding such an act.
    Nowhere in the Gospels of Jesus are there any statements forbiding such an act.

    And, lets rephrase your OP.

    Genocide?
    Lets see. An Embryo is....
    A nationality? No
    A Racial Group? No
    A Political Group? No
    A cultural group? No

    It appears that an unborn human-like organism does not fall under any of these categories, and therefore, does not quality for the term genocide.


    That just about sums up the intelligence of this debate.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Definition of Genocide :

    Genocide is a term defined by Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG) as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

    Definition of Murder :

    A murder is the illegal killing of another. Perpetrators are usually subjected to either lengthy imprisonment or the death penalty in countries which allow capital punishment. Legalized killing, such as genocide, can also constitute murder if it violates international law.

    As long as abortion is legal. It's not murder either. :|

    EY! Stop feeding off my popularity you ding-dong.

    To the poll, yes, because I am.

    To the question in the OP, no way, because that's GOT to be painful for the mother. How could you get an entire religion or race inside a womb?!?
    "Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed." President Bush, under "Mission Accomplished" banner, May 1, 2003.
    Since then, more than 3,970 American soldiers have died in Iraq.

    Good one! ....

    I'm sure if it's possible, old NP will figure out a way.

    The True Christian™ argument.
    Any time a Christian fails to tow the fundamentalist party line, it's because he's not a True Christian™.

    Since people do it, yes. Simple enough. And as for their being real Christians... if they say they are, who's to say they're not? Since Christianity isn't... monolithic, it seems to me that no one group can tell another that its members aren't believers as long as they all share the same basic ideas about God. Baptists and Methodists disagree about things, but they regard each other as members of the same religion. If you consider it objectively, I think abortion proves comparable to the differences between denominations; it's simply a moral rather than theological issue. And Christian morality is certainly open to interpretation sometimes; Jesus dealt in parables, after all, not commandments.
