==Myth: Abortion is not murder==
* Abortion is the medical termination (killing) of an unborn child. According to US law, under proper conditions, abortion is not considered legal murder, but aside from those conditions (e.g - as defined by Roe v. Wade) it is considered legal murder, especially if the abortion takes place without the lawful consent of the mother. Regardless, by moral standards (especially Christian moral standards) it is the taking of a life before it had committed any offense for which it life would ordinarily be forfeit (such as homicide), which is by all moral standards murder.
