Dr. Morgentaler

Whenever anti-abortionists say that the famous abortion doctor, Dr. Morgentaler, murdered babies, this is delusional. Do they have any idea what a blastula looks like or how microscopic it is? It is not a baby! It is not even as human as a jellyfish, not even as human as a water flea. Further, murder is a technical term meaning unlawful killing. Yet their complaint is that what Morgentaler did was not unlawful. Their complaint is thus self contradictory. Creationists were never big on logic or precision in language.

They may, for religious reasons, consider killing a blastula equally wicked to killing a baby, but it is most definitely not literally baby killing. That is demented. Their reasons for objecting are superstitious, based on the belief in a soul (ghost) possessing the fertilised egg at conception. This is a purely religious notion without even a scintilla of evidence to support it. Christians should not be permitted to impose their religious superstitions on others, especially when they jail or murder them as a consequence.
