I’ve tried to reason with you, to no avail. You won’t even listen when someone points out to you the correct definitions of fetus and infant, and why using the term “infanticide” to describe abortion is incorrect.
Infanticide is an emotional trigger and that’s why he doesn’t understand that he’s using it wrong

That is simply not true.
No, True

VA Abortion Advocates Want Infanticide - Liberty Counsel

RICHMOND, VA. — Democratic Governor Ralph Northam and Democratic Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran are advocating to loosen the requirements of late-term abortion in Virginia, which even includes killing of the child during or after delivery.

(The words of the VA Govenor)

Governor Northam defended these efforts to loosen abortion restrictions in Virginia. Northam said, “If a mother is in labor...the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians & mother.”

For starters, that’s not what’s in the law. In the second place, “a discussion” does not mean deliberately killing the infant. There are laws against that. “Discussions” such as the ones likely to happen when someone is not expected to live have to do with palliative care and not a case of putting the infant down the way one puts a terminally ill beloved pet down.

The antichoicers have been particularly despicable in their lies regarding this matter. Nobody has even cited the specific part of the respective laws that specifically say that it’s ok to kill an infant after birth.
