I would certainly say that lawful killing is not murder, but might not
agree with the specific choice of legal. Legal would imply the laws
of the land, whereas lawful would be more broad. What is legal in
this country, i.e. certain killing, may not be lawful if one accepts
a higher law. Many, myself included, would believe that many killings
which are in fact completely legal are still in opposition to the
Divine law. That is why abortion is murder, even though it is legal.
That is my take on it.
