    It is all about nonviable newborn infants. Not a single poster is in favor of killing a healthy newborn baby.
    Jesus rode a donkey, not an elephant.

    And I'm OK with you believing what you want to believe. Just don't tell others that your beliefs are the only right ones and our laws should be built around them.

    There is something seriously wrong with the thought processing capabilities of someone that keeps asking the same question over and over no matter how many times it has been answered.

    "'The unborn' are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don't resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don't ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don't need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don't bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. It's almost as if, by being born, they have died to you. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus but actually dislike people who breathe.

    Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn."

    Yes .. agree, and that's not the approach I've taken.

    Nobody is so stupid that they don't understand the meaning of "function independently" in the phrase "when the fetus can function independently from the mother."
    On the other hand someone that choses "AOC is one dumb whore " for a posting name probably shouldn't be discussing much of anything that requires intelligence above a 5 year old.

    Where did I say that? Killing a newborn is ILLEGAL. Nobody here is advocating for that to change.

    In post 59 I asked if it should be illegal to abort a baby just prior to birth. You said "no"

    Is that what you meant to say?

    If you admit your opinions are not based on facts, you admit being wrong.

    If it it is the day before it is born, it is not yet newborn.
