(If you don't believe that abortion is killing an child, then you believe the number of children killed in abortions is approximately zero.)

Is anyone arguing that ?

Anybody who doesn't believe that abortion is killing a child is inherently arguing that.

And expecting them to be appalled at all the children being killed in abortions, simply shows that you either (a) are not listening to them at all or (b) are incapable of reason.

Neither is likely to get them to listen to you.

Heck if non-Muslims aren't really humans then killing non-Muslims is not killing. No one was murdered on 9/11/01 that's a relief.

Hey, I am not faulting those who think that abortion kills children for being upset about the children being killed. I am faulting them for assuming that everyone agrees with them on this definitional issue - including those who explicitly and loudly disagree with them on it.

(And yes, there's a crowd on the other side committing the same error. And the same is true of most other controversies.)
