    What have the pro abortion crowd at Slate been worrying about lately? They have decided to admit the pro life crowd is right, and declare that it doesn't matter if abortion is murder because the babies aren't important.

    So what if abortion ends life? - Salon.com

    You cannot. We cannot argue about the economy here, either.

    What is right for the circumstances is the new metric.

    I think discussing the value of life is difficult, the article is right, pro-choice people( at least the honest ones) understand that a fetus is a human life, they(me included) simply place more value on the mothers life, than the fetus'.

    I did not use the word debate, did I?

    What do you think about the tactic of admitting defeat to pro lifers and siding with the eugenicists who want to improve the human race by killing undesirables?

    Shouldn't you be on Salon arguing with the person who actually expressed the opinions?

    The pro-life people want the fetus to be considered a person under the law.

    If you were honest you would admit you place more value on the mother's convenience than the child's life.

    Want to try for real honesty, or are you going to try and lie your way through this by claiming all abortions occur because the mother will die without it?

    As long as the culling of undesirables is done of the mother's own free will, law says its her choice.

    Do you have any evidence I am not?
