    mur·der

    1. the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.

    "the stabbing murder of an off-Broadway producer"

    a·bor·tion

    1. the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.

    As you can see. Murder is the premeditated killing of a human by another human. But abortion makes no mention of killing a human or any other life form. It mentions only ending a pregnancy. And a woman is pregnant with an embryo first and then it morphs into a fetus.

    An embryo is a symbiont. It has no human characteristics or features. It cannot live outside the mother's womb. It is not, by any reasonable definition, human. Ending a pregnancy in the first six weeks cannot be murder as there is no human being other than the mother in the first six weeks.

      You forgot to evaluate the "unlawful" part of the murder definition. Abortion is not unlawful, therefore cannot be murder.

    Not hardly any difference when it comes down to it. One is liberal sponsored and the other could be, too.

    Abortion is a personal choice no matter how anyone feels about it.. Whether its immoral or not does not and should not override a womans, or a couples right to choose.

      Murder is also a personal choice, inflicted upon others.

    The very definition of abortion is to terminate a pregnancy. A pregnancy is not a live birth, but a potential live birth.

    Murder is to kill a living and breathing person.

    Now, the real question people ask frequently: is abortion murder?

    Well, this depends on who you ask.

    Pregnancy termination is, in fact, terminating the potential life/birth of a baby.

      Murder is an unlawful killing. Abortion is not. End of discussion.

    The fetus is innocent. Many murder victims are not.

    A woman can't be blamed for getting an abortion in cases of rape, incest, or imminent danger to her life, but for pity's sake, get it done before the baby can feel pain. Or see if the fetus can be transplanted or delivered early.

    You would know the answer to your own question if you were a woman who had been raped or violated by incest or were just poverty-stricken and unable to care for a child. But you aren't a woman, you're a man who easily passes judgment on women who face problems you can't even imagine.

    Abortion is murder.

    This is the religion section. So I will give a biblical answer, and not a secular one like one person did here.

    Murder was defined in the OT writings as one person killing another without due process of law (a trial). If a murder is intentional, it is invariably an act of hatred. When it comes to the unborn, they are put to death without due process. They have no trial. No one advocates for them.

    To further explain, Jesus contrasted good works with evil works using the destruction of live versus the saving of life. Therefore, abortion is an evil work. Life is being destroyed.

      In the story of Hansel and Gretel, their parents were trying to kill them by leaving them out in the woods. Nobody seems to wonder what became of the parents.

    Abortion is a natural process. More than 50% of fertilised ova fail to implant on the wall of the uterus or do so and then abort shortly afterwards, mostly without the woman being aware she has conceived. If she is aware, such abortions are called miscarriages. Medical abortions to terminate a pregnancy for whatever reason are a drop in the ocean compared with the number of natural ones. They remove a zygote that had the possibility of becoming a human being but was not a human being at that stage. In most jurisdictions, medical abortions are a legal process.

    Murder is the unlawful killing of another human being. It is not a legal process in any jurisdiction.
