Murder is the taking of the life of another human being through the initiation of physical force. Abortion is not murder because a fetus is not an actual human being—it is a potential human being, i.e., it is a part of the woman. The concept murder only applies to the initiation of physical force used to destroy an actual human being, such as when “pro-life” terrorists bomb abortion clinics.
