If you kill a Woman with Child you get charged with 2 counts of murder. So, why is abortion not consider murder by the same system that will convict a Killer of murdering an unborn baby when the mother dies? How is an abortion Doctor any different then a the convicted killer?
That's an excellent question! (scratches head)...
In law, the killing of another human being under conditions specifically covered in law. In the U.S., special statutory definitions include murder committed with MALICE AFORETHOUGHT, characterized by deliberation or premeditation or occurring during the commission of another serious crime, as robbery or arson (first-degree murder), and murder by intent but without deliberation or premeditation (second-degree murder).
Abortion is an approved medical procedure under generally accepted medical practices, whether or not we like it, and legal in accordance with Roe vs. Wade, U.S. Supreme Court.
