Abortion Word Games

Have you ever noticed how pro-abortion people like to use positive, nice sounding words? For example, words like pro-choice, or they will say abortion is a woman's right. And they try to pretend that the living human being that is being killed is not really a living entity by using clinical sounding words such as embryo, fetus, cell, or tissue.

Well, I thought it would be interesting to look in the dictionary to find out how the dictionary defines words such as "pregnancy" and "termination," since even the abortion groups such as Family Planning still use those words to advertise their services. Yes, look in any Yellow Pages directory, and there you will find listed Pregnancy Termination. So let's see what that REALLY means:

Pregnancy: 1. state, condition, or quality of being pregnant.

Pregnant: 1. having a child or other offspring developing in the body; with child or young, as a woman or female mammal.

Offspring: 1. children or young of a particular parent or progenitor. 2. a child or animal in relation to its parents. 3. descendants.

(Okay, so the dictionary says that pregnancy equals pregnant which equals having a child or offspring developing in your body. A child, not just some tissue)

Termination: 1. the act of terminating or the condition of being terminated.

Terminate: 1. to bring to an end; put an end to.

(Okay, so termination equals terminate, which equals "to put an end to." Let's see what other word has that same definition.)

Kill: 1. to deprive of life in any manner; cause the death of; slay. 2. to put an end to; extinguish.

So to recap, according to the Webster's Encyclopedic Dictionary (1989 Edition) PREGNANCY means the same as CHILD, and TERMINATION means the same as KILL. Put them together and you have PREGNANCY TERMINATION equals CHILD KILLING.

I wish the pro-abortionists would stop hiding behind euphemisms. A rose by any other name still smells as sweet, and abortion by any other name is still the murder of children. Call it what it is!

Life is not a choice, life is a gift from God. Anyone who chooses to end a life, regardless of how long that life has been lived, is a murderer (even an abortion doctor or a woman who chooses to have an abortion). If you don't agree with me, that is your right.

Tracy, Thank you so much for leaving comments. This is all true.

Dear Whiteshadow,
I agree with you. I think, they already do it (short pleasure) and when the time has come, simply says "This is the best way" to save both of us marriage.

But you should consider for the following case:
1). How if abortion must be done for saving the mother's life.
2) How if detected the embryo has physical deformity. Should you let him/her to live with suffering for life.

By the way, thanks for your answer there and I still musing it. Nice to meet you.

Thank you so much tikno for your comments.
1.)Abortion must be done for saving the mother's life? I am willing to die for my baby just for him/her to survive.

2.)Rape and birth defects are not good enough excuses to terminate a pregnancy. What comes to my mind when you think about humans being murdered because of genetic defects or disabilities? Is it Nazi Germany with its “mercy killings” and its goal of racial purity? NO, I wouldn't get an abortion just because the baby I'm carrying has a birth defect. Who am I to judge whether that baby should live or die because it had a cleft lip, no leg, or whatever defect? The knowledge of that birth defect won't change a thing, it won't make it go away.

Dear Whiteshadow,

You know, I agree with you. Abortion is a termination of a successful conception, so it is NOT the same as contraception.  If a woman doesn’t want to get pregnant, there are three things she can do:  1.) Don’t have sex, 2.) use female contraception products (pills, patches, injections, spermicidal creams/inserts, etc), or 3.) Make sure the man uses a condom.

If a woman gets pregnant but doesn’t want to keep the baby, the most humane thing to do is offer the baby for adoption.  There are thousands of people on waiting lists to be able to adopt babies (since older children tend to resent the fact that adopting parents are not their birth parents).  If there were more babies being offered for adoption in America, people wouldn’t be paying thousands of dollars to adopt babies from foreign countries.

Anyway, I really love your blog.

What a nice thought about this issue. I have 2 sweet little boys and just to think that if you get rid of them before they even got the chance to see the light, that would be a horrible thing to do. I believe that the bonding of mother and child starts while they are in their mother's womb. How could you ever afford to do it? It's your own blood and flesh and you can't tell what a wonderful child they would be and be able for them to enjoy their life and grow in the way God wants to them to be.

We need to take full responsibility for all the actions we had and if it is something we are not ready yet, why do it? If you think it's hard for you to bear, just think that it is the price of what have done, nevertheless, God always love all of us regardless of our imperfections because we are His children and that is the reason why, you have no right to terminate somebody's life because that life too is His and every soul is precious to Him.

thanks for inviting me to ur site....really ur site is cool..I believe the same way you do with this issue. Life begins when a sperm actually meets the egg and fertilized. No one has the right to abort anyone human life even if it's still unborn. If one has a problem with that, she should have been careful in the first place with contraception available everywhere.

I also have another post that you may be interested to comment on or leave some insights. The post is on the the homepage entitled "If Americans Can Be Richer than God"

Abortion is murder. Plain and simple.

WHITEShadow said...

Iron_woman, AngelMist, Bingkee & Nuke,

Thank you so much for your brilliant idea about abortion. I agree there are lots of things you can do so pregnancy can be avoided and that is your choice, however if pregnancy process starts, this will only leave you one choice and that is to keep the baby. Now,if any of you who will say that this idea is not a very loving way or totally eliminate the woman's right to choose, let me ask you, is killing a child a loving way? Do you give him/her the right to choose? Absolutely not! Our freedom ends where others starts especially if we knew it would hurt somebody's life.

Who would want to argue. Nuke said it right. It is MURDER, plain and simple.

Thanks you guys.
BE TRUE TO THE FAITH!

I love your outspoken zeal.

Amen to this post.

WHITEShadow said...

Hi Simply-me: Sometimes, we need to stand up and be bold for what is right. I know this has been a sore issue here in the US and even in some countries across the world. I think we have to look back to what has been told to us by the older generation who were gone before us. The have a stronger principles and better outlook about life. Most of those principles were set aside because of the life this new generation embraced and a wrong view about their freedom to choose.

Keep the faith...
