Your argument was that killing is not a right in America, and yet there are multiple instances in which taking lives is either expressly permitted by law or largely approved/unsanctioned by the courts (see the majority of police officers being acquitted after murdering civilians). Your statement was inaccurate, and you providing justifications for each of the instances that I pointed out only proves my point: I'm not debating *why* killing is legal in those cases or whether it should be, I'm saying that it is. And you're agreeing with that. There is no right that is absolute, and that includes the right to life.
Speaking of which, your argument was wrong from the outset because abortion *is* in fact legal thanks to Roe v. Wade, meaning that at least until this bait law reaches the Supreme Court, Americans *do* have the right that you're saying they don't. You can call it murder if you want, but it is legal.
If the majority of police officers are being acquitted unfairly then that's a failure of the system, not what's in law.
As for a right to life. You do have a right to life as long as you don't unduly try to end someone elses. The infants in the womb don't commit any crimes and are completely innocent and yet they're being massacred. You're giving excuses for governments to kill whoever they please.
Also you say it's legal as if it's right. Slavery was legal. Does that mean it's right? And as for the 14th Amendment, it guarantees privacy. It says nothing about abortion. Even Democrats say it was judicial activism that came up with the Roe vs. Wade decision.
