How am I being emotional? I'm not even arguing a position I hold, as I am not one that believes with certainty that the child/fetus within the womb should be considered a child with the full rights as any other from the moment of conception. But I am pointing out the ridiculousness of deeming one a libertarian or not based on their abortion views by looking at it only through ones own narrow view of what is or isn't a viable way to view the organism growing inside the woman at the time.Fetus refers to a stage of development... it is not an antonym of child. You're not being objective, and you're *gasp* being emotional, which I think is hilarious since you accused me of it for mentioning rape before. I find you highly emotional in the abortion debate.
Absolutely rue. However, as was shown recently with the essentiall/non-essential government worker debate, while there are not just various definitions for words but various uses for such words. Typically, in the abortion debate, many people use "fetus" when simultaneously arguing that it has no rights while many people use "child" when simultaneously arguing that it does have rights and thus why I used the language I used when responding to his argument that was doing the former....using the word fetus while sumultaneously arguing that it has no rights.Child is a noun... and child can refer to any of those developmental stages.
