Pro-lifers should never use the word "abortion." It's too soft a word. To begin with, it's the wrong terminology. The definition of abortion is the expulsion of an embryo or fetus before it is viable outside of the womb.

In the wholesale killing of unborn babies that are done today, the fetus IS viable inside the womb. It has to be killed first. This is called a surgical, or induced abortion.

Plain abortions, which are spontaneous abortions, are nature's way to expel a non- viable embryo/fetus. (dead embryo/fetus.)

Before the Roe-Wade decision 25 years ago, if a woman lost her unborn without surgical intervention, the doctor referred to this as an abortion and the lay person used the term miscarriage. Now somewhere along the line the PCKU (pro-choice to kill the unborn) has taken liberties with semantics and uses the word abortion in place of surgical or induced abortion.

The definition of viable is: capable of living.

And the embryo/fetus IS capable of living inside the womb. Again somewhere along the line, to suit the PCKU, the meaning of viable when it pertains to the killing of unborn babies, now means: the fetus is able to survive outside of the womb.

Forget that it can survive inside the womb -- apparently that's not important anymore.

It used to be, that the safest place for the unborn to be, was in the mother's womb -- she would protect her unborn baby with her life. How times have changed. Now it's the most dangerous place on the face of the earth.

33% of the time, the unborn baby will be killed. It all depends on the luck of the draw.

Frankly, I'm getting tired of the PCKU using the semantic game...twisting words around to make the killing of unborn babies sound more...
