No, a fetus is not yet living, so it does not count.

Yes, more people have died from abortion than terrorism or the Holocaust.

No, because whether it's mass murder or not, it doesn't qualify as genocide: "noun 1. The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group."

Cultural group- babies

Baby isn't a culture. And fetuses aren't babies in the first place.

Skeptikitten; lets say I was you mom, I had sex with a guy/ hopefully my husband, Then realized crap. I love having sex but I can't since I'm pregnant with you, so I go and abort you, lets say everything is formed, you got a heart already, and I decided just because I wanted to keep having sex I did want you yet. It's still killing a child. You are a child from the first time a sperm touches the egg.

I will just shut up right now. :/ (Do not comment on this) Yep, 2:00 in the morning, I'm brain dead @ this hour of the day?

Why do liberals have to be so philosophical? Get real sometimes.

Leojm - "just because I wanted to keep having sex" - do you think if you're pregnant you can't have sex? Where's the poll for more sex education?

Also, having a heart doesn't make you a 'person', nor does having human DNA. Having a mind, or a subjective personal consciousness, which by definition requires a functioning higher brain, does. Also, according to the actual, literal definition of the word, you are only a 'child' once you are actually born. And yes, you need to brush up on your biology if you think being pregnant precludes having sex.

But surely more people haven't been killed because there was no life to end anyway, only stopping a life from being made.

@leojm wonder full come back!!! "Skeptikitten; lets say I was you mom, I had sex with a guy/ hopefully my husband, Then realized crap. I love having sex but I can't since I'm pregnant with you, so I go and abort you, lets say everything is formed, you got a heart already, and I decided just because I wanted to keep having sex I did want you yet.

@HenryGBR Well, if a fetus is not a person, is it an animal? Or a plant? And if a fetus is not alive, is it dead? Because it is one or the other. Now we all know that dead things do not grow, if anything they decompose and shrink, but a fetus grows, so therefore, it is alive. We also know that dogs, for instance, give birth to dogs. Cats give birth to cats. Monkeys to monkeys, etc. And humans give birth to humans. So I hope we can agree that the fetus is human. So if a fetus is not dead, it is alive, and if the fetus is not plant, nor animal, but human, to kill one would mean that you are killing live human. Sounds like murder to me...

A fetus is LIVING.It develops. Where did you get the idea it's not ?
