If full-birth abortion is now legal, then why not just go ahead and legalize murder? (self.whatever)

Laws against it don't stop it from happening.
Better support for participating without it may come in the future.

Could you define full-birth abortion for me and provide a link or something to set the context for your statement?

OP can't, because it doesn't exist. NY state's latest abortion law is not the full blown murder at will law that many web sites claim. It only allows up to 24 weeks, except in certain conditions that are already defined by the feds. Personally, I believe it's murder after 12 weeks, which is when the brain halves connect.

Ah, I figured it was something like that. Personally I don't even think newborn babies are really human in the sense of being people. The potential is there but the structures in the brain are not developed enough for personhood. That doesn't change the visceral emotional response most people have built into them though.
