When did abortion become a simple birth control method? Is abortion the killing of a human being?

When it became legal and a right to murder when you're too lazy to use contraception AND the government, ie yours and my, taxes would pay for it.

it would be so much easier for the religious to allow sex-education on using birth control contraceptives and make 100% effective contraceptives universally available.
people will terminate unwanted pregnancies for the simple reason that they do not want to have more children; don't they have the right to make the choice to "not bear children" for themselves?
the current levels of population growth referenced with the population-pressures in most catholic-majority countries suggests that the malthusian-collapse will proceed and create "harmful-effects" for those who do not use contraception.
the stoicism-approach to sex by religion becomes a bigger quality-of-life issue when you have to support more children then there is food, medicine, or clothes.
today, when the times have changed, religious rules concerning the use of contraception must also change---for the good of the people.

It did not become a simple form of birth control.
No, it is not killing a human being.

Up to 1950, the Church did not define abortion as a murder. Abortion was condemned because it was deemed to be a way for a woman to hide her sin from her husband (the idea being that woman who got abortions did so because they got pregnant from another man).
1950 edition of Guide to Confessors.

A fetus is not a human being. A fetus cannot drive, work, or drink milk. Abortion was practiced by some ancient societies and in some third World countries. A pregnant woman can make a fetus stillfborn by taking drugs or by overworking for example. Infanticide was sometimes practiced too both in the past and even in the present. infanticide is the killing of a human being.
"Infanticide is the act of deliberately causing the death of a very young child (under 1 year old). In the past, and in many societies, it was a widespread practice, permitted by different cultures around the world. Nowadays, it is considered to be an unethical crime; however, it is still performed."
In fact, many conservatives are trying to commit infanticide by denying food stamps to poor people, so they cannot feed their infants, and by denying health care to infants if their parents cannot afford to see a doctor. Allowing an infant to die because it has no medical insurance is killing of a human being, and conservatives supports it wholeheartedly.Source(s): https://www.humanium.org/en/infanticide/
