Not too long ago, Planned Parenthood was investigated for selling fetus organs to other countries around the world. That quickly went hush hush.
Now, we had a presidential nominee (Hillary Clinton), who in her third debate with Trump, fully and 100% supported Planned Parenthood on the "full term" abortion policy, as long as it did not harm the mother at all. This policy allows a mother to decide to terminate a pregnancy up to the very last day of the projected due date. WRONG!!! Now, if i'm not mistaken, isn't there a law that states that an abortion must take place before the 4th month of pregnancy because at that time, the fetus has developed it's little extremities (hands and feet)? After 4 months, it is then considered murder. Hillary Clinton's opinion on this subject in my opinion, classifies her as a murderer, as well as everyone who voted for her. We all must answer to God sometime in our existence, whether we are alive or whether we are dead, we ALL WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO OUR SINS!! God said "Thou shall not kill" God did not tell us to decide who lives and who dies.

Your stance on these issues seem to be predicated on misinformation.



"...Planned Parenthood was investigated for selling fetus organs to other countries around the world."


Your use of the words "sell" and "fetus organs" is very liberal here. Planned Parenthood is not turning a profit by selling fetuses. In reality, they are being reimbursed for the expenses that are associated with performing abortions by donating fetal tissue for research and stem-cell purposes [1]. The price for these tissues are typically found within the $30-$100 range, a modest amount by any reasonable person's standards. It's easy to see the impossibility of turning a profit this way for the company.


"[Hillary Clinton] supported Planned Parenthood on the "full term" abortion policy, as long as it did not harm the mother at all. This policy allows a mother to decide to terminate a pregnancy up to the very last day of the projected due date."


Clinton is never quoted saying she advocates late-term abortions in all cases. She has strictly stated only in very rare cases where the mother's health (emotional or otherwise) was severely at risk from giving birth, late-term abortions could be justified [2]. I'm not necessarily agreeing with her claim, however, that many late-term abortions are due to medical necessity, but she never stated that as long as the mother wouldn't be harmed, all abortions past 20-weeks are fine.


"Hillary Clinton's opinion on this subject in my opinion, classifies her as a murderer, as well as everyone who voted for her."


This statement seems to advocate thoughtcrime, and should not be taken seriously.


"We all must answer to God sometime in our existence, whether we are alive or whether we are dead, we ALL WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO OUR SINS!! God said "Thou shall not kill" God did not tell us to decide who lives and who dies."


Irrelevent to the debate. Also, not only is abortion never explicitly mentioned in the Bible, but it was also practiced and permissable under Roman law during the time period Jesus would have been alive [3].

Con, you had me up until you said that everyone who voted for her is a murderer and the mention of God. Religion really has nothing to do with this topic.

So if I think about killing someone that makes me a murderer?
