You are refusing to answer like an adult OR you honestly do not know shrug
So a woman knowingly partakes in an activity that has outcomes fully understood and she should have a choice in the outcome afterwards?
Do you understand the science from decades past has defined the unborn -
1) separate genome from the mother [unlike any other person in the world!]
2) the embryo is where nature intended [where else should the child go?]
3) the size of the embryo is irrelevant because we all grow as we mature
4) and like a child outside of the womb they depend on nourishment from others until they mature into adults
5) the degree of dependency changes with every person as we age.
So out of the five examples I provided, can you refute even one, let alone ALL of them together?
BTW does a man gain any rights by providing half the NECESSARY COMPONENTS? How about the infant, do they gain no rights until an eight inch journey down a canal? What about babies born via caesarian? I am sorry but the child's rights supersede all others including the mother at the very moment of conception!! Look to science if you disagree. Every credible embryology textbook in the wold defines the unborn the same way, separate from the mother.
Now I will never deny a woman any right when she is a victim of a crime, especially a heinous one such as rape!! I hope she receives many opinions before she decides the fate of a child who did nothing wrong! I also ask [this has never been answered, to my satisfaction] how is a violent act made better by perpetuation of said act with even more violence?
I am NOT in Idaho right now. I am NOT a veterinarian. I am NOT a lot of things. Yet I am NOT trying to be dick either ; )
Other than not being born, how would you define the unborn?
I will be more than glad to answer every single question you have if you will do me a favor and define the unborn. My stance is critical upon the science of life.
In two parts -
Why does the practical option have to be abortion? Oh, I don't know about being responsible or even gasp adoption.
I could care less how they 'justify the slaughter of a defenseless child.' Some choices are just wrong, in whatever way those choices are justified.
I'm supposing they justify it by coming to the conclusion that it isn't practical for them to have a child at that point in time. How do you suppose someone is thinking they're benefiting the human race by terminating a pregnancy? [/quote]
How can you quantify it as being a "wrong" choice?
Is there no responsibility in terminating a pregnancy when lacking the finances or time necessary to support and care for the child? I'm curious as to what your means of creating a profound responsibility among people will be since there have been solutions to unwanted pregnancies dating back to the Neolithic period.
Adoption just isn't realistic since the mother will have to carry out the pregnancy.[/quote]
Unborn? I'd have to use the literal definition and say it's a fetus not yet birthed by its mother.[/quote]
