It's not killing it if it isn't alive

There is a living thing in the womb. When you abort it you kill it. You are preventing life which is murder.

The latest possible stage in pregnancy you can get an abortion, is in the stage where the "baby" hasn't developed a heart yet which means it is not living. And also with the logic you are using, periods are preventing life, so is that murder? Birth control, like condoms, birth control pills, anal intercourse, abstinence, etc. With your logic, all of this is murder, which none of this is in any way killing.

Example:
Abortion is similar to murder
Murder is wrong
Thus abortion is wrong

This can be used with many different arguments, Like:

Poop is similar to Chocolate
Chocolate is delicious
Thus poop is delicious

Murder is unlawful killing of another person.
Abortion in most places is legal, thus disproving the fact that it is murder.
A person: a human being regarded as an individual.

Abortion isn't murder.
