" Kerry's comments drew guffaws from pro-life advocates."

Kerry's comments should draw guffaws from everyone.

"One on One " with Peter Jennings, July 22, 2004

Jennings asked, "If you believe that life begins at conception, is even a first-trimester abortion not murder?"

Kerry replied, "No, because it's not the form of life that takes personhood
in the terms that we have judged it to be in the past.
It's the beginning of life."

Anyone speak Kerryese ?
Anyone have the faintest idea of what this moron is saying ?
What is a personhood ???
Why isn't the media asking these same questions ?

i think this difference life vs. personhood is about the most honest "pro-choice" point of view, Kerry is correct to some extent - there was/is ?? a Christian Doctine of "Ensoulment" see and Islamic law says "The Oxford Dictionary of Islam ... Ensoulment of the fetus is understood to occur 120 days after conception; after ensoulment, abortion constitutes homicide and...". So Kerry does have some philosophical grounds to stand on in being "pro-choice". None in relation to partial birth abortion though or is absolutist pro-abortion voting record
