    So you think dictionary.com has a hidden liberal agenda and that they're secretly pro-abortion.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I suppose you think conservapedia is a viable source as well.

    Where is this legal precedent that says fetuses are covered?

    People reside in prison today having been convicted of homicide in the deaths of unborns. One can only be convicted of homicide if one has killed a person.

    In Roe, the court said:

    No case law existed at the time establishing the personhood of unborns. The same is not true today. If you are unable to look up specific cases, just ask and I will be happy to provide some although 1 is all that is necessary to establish the suggestion of personhood.

    The issue wasn't the dictionary, it was the person cherry picking definitions that support her argument and pretending that the remaining defintions do not exist...and further ignoring what legal dictionaries say altogether in favor of a single entry from dictionary.com when that same dictionary defined child as a human fetus.

    Arguing not only semantics, but cherry picked semantics is the most insubstantial form of argument.

    I deal with legal documents all the time. I have to interpret legal decisions and statutes all of the time. There is no such thing as an order of precedence in a legal document. Item 55 has just as much authority as item 1.

    If you want to stick to the law, no problem. Abortion is not murder and it is legal. I'm glad we have finally put this entire issue to rest.

    And there you have it. You begin by making the blanket statement that the right to life is paramount. But when it starts to become evident that this position takes you places you do not wish to go, you start to modify that position. Modify and modify until it just takes you where you want to go. Moral convenience.

    That is the problem with the "pro-life" movement. You're not pro-life.

    It's cherry picking and semantics to you because the definition disagrees with you.


    A fetus is not a child, no matter how much you stomp your feet and declare otherwise.

    Legally abortion is not murder, abortion is legal. Now what about who has to pay for it? After all a porterhouse steak is legal, I have a right to chow down on a porterhouse steak, do you have the obligation to pay for it.

    Abortion is an elective procedure. It is a woman's right to choose. As an elective procedure she should have to pay for it like having a nose job or a boob job. Some abortions are medically necessary. Some breast surgeries are medically necessary. Abortions are no different.

    Janitors in a hospital handle medical equimpent all the time as well. That doesn't mean that they understand them. Make yourself familiar with the order of precedence.

    By the Roe decision itself, the case for abortion on demand has collapsed as precedent has been established for the personhood of unborns. Glad that is settled.
