As soon as she was aware she was pregnant she would likely say she has a precious life growing inside her. The maternal instinct in nearly every woman on the planet is undeniable even when in thier childhood.The overwhelming majority of women would say the same thing unless they harbour little or no maternal feelings for the new life developing inside them.
You sure? I was under the impression that a human life was actually a martian life.
What in the world are you talking about?
It shouldn't be complicated at all.Pro-choice advocates and lawyers have complicated this whole debate.You are willing to say that life began billions of years ago in some promordial ocean with a little chemical reaction and little bit of lightning..and the first molecules started to self-duplicate and there you have life. But you are hesitant to conclude that an embryo's beating heart at 4 weeks is not life let alone a potential human being.
Whatever you refer to with "it," what I said was that as two positions become more and more similar, it becomes more and more complex and lengthy to debate them.
The debate between the allowance of abortion, and the disallowance of abortion, which would seem to be your position, would tend to be simpler and shorter than the debate between the disallowance of abortion, and the allowance of abortion until the third trimester.
But you are hesitant to conclude that an embryo's beating heart at 4 weeks is not life let alone a potential human being.
Am I? I think you'll find I've said nothing to the contrary.
As DBL rightly stated that religious beliefs notwithstanding...science has proven that a human life begins long before full term birth. That should settle the whole argument..
What should be so is not always so, and what should be right is not always right. For you, religion should be right, but this does not magically make proof appear out of nowhere.
Dbl doesn't believe that human life shouldn't be aborted. At least he hasn't said anything to the contrary.
What he actually said was that the fetus was viable after the second trimester. Viability referring to the probabilty of a fetus surviving when a premature delivery is attempted during the 26-27th weeks of pregnancy, which encompasses the boundary between the second and third trimester, being, on average, a high 90%. Probabilty of survival only increases thereafter.
