No. Abortion is not always death. Death s not a prerequisit of abortion. We simply don't criminalize it because there is no moral consensus that a human life is taken by abortions. In fact the Bible claims humanity only begins at birth.

The intent of abortion is always death. There is a logical and moral consensus built on biological and genetic facts that say life begins at conception. According to the biological definition of life, a new, living organism is created through the union of egg and sperm. Genetics has proven that this new, living organism is discernible from its parents due to its unique DNA, as well as proving the DNA it possesses is entirely human.

It's "amusing" (disgusting, really) that you leftist clowns, who always insist that religion should have no part in politics, are always the first to try to make this some sort of religious debate using parts of the Bible you clearly don't comprehend, in order to avoid any sort of factual discussion.

Oh, so very WRONG you are: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

The unborn baby has: separate DNA, blood supply, fingerprints; I personally know of two recent premature births in the 6th month of pregnancy--one weighed only 2 lbs., 2 oz.., and both have grown and thrived outside of the womb. Why is their humanity any different from the usual ones who grow inside the womb for a few months longer? Because you can SEE them? Well, just get a sonogram!

Define what the bible ment as birth. Concenption? Exit from the Mother's body? What if it was premature and lived?

"moral consensus"?
One needs not a consensus to determine the morality of this decision. There are absolute truths, despite your desire to massage the issue.
And this woman would argue with you as well.
Her admission to the Truth that life begins at conception flies in teh face of your efforts to claim otherwise:

The "so what" position is that very truth which is revealed when pro-choice advocates decide to be honest with themselves.

In an ideal world, Roe v. Wade -- perhaps the most insidious Supreme Court ruling since the infamous Dred Scott decision in 1857 -- would be overturned. And contrary to what most leftists assert, however, this does not necessarily mean that abortion would be universally prohibited and illegal. For example, before Roe became the law of the land in 1973, abortion was permissible in certain states. The legality of abortion, then, should be decided by individuals at the state level -- at least in the short-term -- not by a High Court of un-elected, unaccountable judges in Washington. This would...
