Partial birth abortion is murder. By any definition of the term. Any abortion is highly questionable. In cases of rape and incest, the woman can take immediate steps to forestall pregnancy. To me this is one of the main issues I have with the scientific community, including medicine. They take action based on presumptions, not facts. They make a certain presumption about the beginning of life, and then act on it. I assume it's a form of cover for their conscience - "It couldn't have lived outside the womb."
Yeah, well it was living inside the womb until you killed it.
It's like genetic manipulation of food crops. Well, we don't know what the **** we're doing, but we're going to do it anyway on the presumption that we'll be able to deal with whatever comes up.
