Holy shit…abortion is not murder. Murder is legally defined as the intentional killing of a human being with malice afterthought. (Malice meaning the intention or desire to do evil)Women don’t get abortions because they are these horrible people who like or even want to kill. They all have legitimate reasons. Pro-lifers don’t even really care about the fetus, they just care that it’s born…after that the baby can starve and freeze for all they care. They’re just pro-birth.

Exactly why do you think that abortion differs from murder? I want to have an honest discussion here.
Yes, we do care about the fetus, please don’t make claims with neither backing nor relevance to a discussion. If a parent does not properly care for a child, that parent is punished and the child taken away to somewhere (theoretically) better for it.

Because if you’re going with the life begins at insemination thing then statistically every mother is also probably a murderer.

"The National Institutes of Health report that “around half of all fertilized eggs die and are lost (aborted) spontaneously”
You can check the sources there or dig through your own. I don’t feel like pulling a bunch again for like the 80th time.

Here’s the thing: miscarriage, while tragic, differs fundamentally from abortion in the respect that abortion is a deliberate act whereas miscarriage has no intent with it, it is nobody’s fault since nobody chose to do anything. By the definition of murder you gave of “the intentional killing of a human being with malice afterthought.Murder is legally defined as the intentional killing of a human being with malice afterthought,” this comparison has no weight at all.

Good, now replace miscarriage with manslaughter in your own argument and it still works. That should tell you something.

Actually, that’s not correct. Manslaughter is defined as “when a death is caused by a violation of a non-felony, such as reckless driving” -http://dictionary.law.com/Default.aspx?selected=1209
This has nothing in common with a tragic accident of biology. The mother in the case of miscarriage has no choice in the matter, and has no way of stopping it.

last time I check a miscarriage isn’t a felony. You can be guilty of man slaughter and not actually lift a finger. Cars brakes go out while you left it parked? That’s man slaughter. Even though you weren’t in the vehicle. Roof caved in on someone while in your house? A kid eating something he’s allergic to while in your house? I could be here days listing hypotheticals but the point is so even though you did nothing, you are in fact still guilty. The only difference between that, and a miscarriage is that that a miscarriage isn’t criminalized. So by the own definition of manslaughter you have provided abortions are not murder, because they are not criminalized.
So lets recap here.
You can accept that manslaughter should regard all accidental deaths. Just as murder should regard all intentional deaths. Therefor classifying miscarriage as manslaughter. 
Or you can accept that something not being criminalized is proper grounds for it not being classified as a crime. Therefor divorcing miscarriage from manslaughter but also abortion from murder.
Or you can accept that life does not begin at fertilization and abortion and miscarriages are neither manslaughter nor murder. 

Actually, a non-felony means something that you aren’t allowed to do which is not a felony; things like assault fall into this category. If the death was not planned beforehand, it is manslaughter.
Manslaughter does not and should not include accidental deaths; manslaughter includes all deaths caused by an individual’s action that the individual did not plan beforehand. Things like miscarriage don’t fall into this category since the individual had no choice in the matter and could not have prevented it.
Actually, whether or not something is presently criminalized is irrelevant to whether or not it ought to be criminalized.
I most certainly do not need to accept that. Moreover, how would this follow from the arguments you made? None of them even touched upon the beginning of life.

In my opinion, congress should be representative. Why do we bother doing a census if we’re not going to implement what we find? If our population is 50% white, 25% POC, 15% Hispanic and 10% Native/Asian/etc. (this is just a bullshit percentage,…

So just to be clear, your ideal system would punish people for being white, hetero, etc. since a circumstance beyond their control would make it impossible for them to try to represent their fellows in a governmental position? And this is in what way a system of equal rights?

HAPPENING NOW [VERY IMPORTANT]: Venezuela’s soldiers are killing their people. The Government is sending their armed gangs to kill them and they have censored all the media in their country, even blocking photos posted on social media sites. They shut down all the cable channels that broadcast news, so they can’t know what’s going on. The people have no source of protection at all. Students are protesting to save their country and their lives at this very moment. All they have are their social networks to get the word out so, PLEASE RE-BLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD. VENEZUELA IS ON THE BRINK OF A CIVIL WAR  AND CLOSE TO BECOMING A FULL COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. THEIR PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP. —— Please, this is very important to me, one of my closest friends went to visit family in Venezuela over winter break and they won’t let him come back to Florida. We’re graduating in a few months and it hurts me to know that his baseball career and all of his hard work and dedication to his grades here in the U.S. was all for nothing. Please.

use the hashtags pictured at the top of this post on your social networking sites to connect and help spread the word, thank you so much! x

one of my friends is in the middle of this shit right now and it’s terrifying, she said their twitters are getting blocked so they can’t share info, their murder rate is the second highest in the world and none of the murderers go to jail because they’re government supporters, they can’t find basic household items or food in their supermarkets, their economy has plummeted, inflation increased over 50% in the two months since 2014 started, airlines have basically left the country because the govt owes them so much money, they have no access to cars or car parts, they can’t cross any borders because their govt controls them and no one is helping them.

it is fucking pissing me off that no one is helping them when they’re asking for it and need it so much. And I am so frustrated that theres not more I can do than share things like this to spread the word, that I just have to hope enough people see it that something gets done.

this is horrible. pray for them :(((

LIKE.REBLOG.

Does anybody know if there’s been a charity or donation service to help out set up yet?

OH GOD…-.- this is exactly why media is so fucked up!! a civil war really?? a fucking civil war?I’m venezuelan living IN Venezuela and that is brand new information for me… I just can’t and look at that dumbshit asking where she/he can donate… If you come you would get the shock of your life seeing how everyone goes to class, to work and how people actually do their everyday thing like theres nothing happening… I’m not saying everything is fine and dandy but don’t post dumbshit when you don’t even live here and all your information is from biased news sites, I can only imagine how venezuela is being protrayed right now by international media outlets 

Sorry if I somehow offended you by hoping that there was some way that I could help. I can’t afford to fly down to Venezuela to help out that way and I certainly can’t join in any kind of civil war. What I can do, is use some of the very little money I have to try to get money to those who are being hurt, children whose parents are dying, etc. and that is all that I was wondering about. So sorry if wanting to help people in the only way that I am able is somehow offensive to you.
