  •  This law is what makes these "lawful" (0+ / 0-)

    That's its purpose.  

    To define what is "justifiable" and therefore a defense to a charge of murder.

    By their inclusion in this law, acts become "lawful" that taken outside the described conditions would otherwise constitute a crime.

    Killing a person is not lawful.

    Killing a person becomes lawful when it meets the elements set forth in this law.

    As amended, killing a person who is threatening to imminently cause harm to an unborn child in a manner likley to cause the death of the unborn child (pretty much the definition of abortion) is made lawful, even though the abortion itself is legal and consented to by the mother.  

    If health care is not basic necessity, try living without it.
