Some people like to describe abortion, solely as “a woman’s right to choose. Others espouse the equality of unborn children, male or female, in their “right to life”. The term ‘murder’ by definition refers solely to death caused by choice. In fact the Biblical Commandment translates more accurately “thou shalt not murder”.
In triage situations, that is the prioritizing of patients, the doctor is not held legally responsible for what may otherwise have been medical neglect. Thus in the rare cases where abortion is necessary to save the life of the mother, none would espouse the doctor’s being held legally responsible for “Murder”.
I have always espoused the relinquishing of the legal issue of abortion [as to the sacrosanct threshold of HUMAN Life] from federal to “state-by-state” jurisdiction. The promotion of so-called-abortion for three year olds, demonstrates the madness present on the fringes of academia.
For a comical allegory of the generally “to crazy to argue with” situation see this link. I find it quite applicable to any who would espouse late term or partial birth abortion, accepting triage of course.
It should be troubling to everyone, that the proliferation of birth control & abortion originated with Margaret Sanger & her “Planned Parenthood” group. Sanger who was a racist, that promoted birth control among “socially undesirable people” aka nonwhites, first openly, as a racially motivated ‘soft-genocide’ & after a trip to Europe she promoted birth control among the black communities for “social reasons”.
“[the] most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it.” -Margaret Sanger
