Since we were straying a bit in the "Scott Peterson" thread towards abortion, I thought I would start a new thread on it so we can discuss and stay on topic Should abortion be considered murder? Should the federal government make it illegal? If a fetus isn't a person, then what is it? I was hoping we could discuss some of these questions from a politcal and scientific aspect. I'm trying to get a meaningful topic going here. Let me know what you think about this.
