Tonignton, an embryo is not human; it has potential to become a human being. And society recognizes that. Thus when a woman has a miscarriage, the state does not record the miscarriage as the death of a person. A woman is not required to hold a funeral for the embryo. Death of an embryo (miscarriage) is treated in a totally different manner than death of a person. A woman on welfare cannot start drawing welfare for two the moment she becomes pregnant. When government carries out census, it does not count the fetuses among its population. There are many ways in which the state acknowledges that an embryo is not a person, a human being.
All that means (chromosome number etc.) is that by a lot of care, attention, nurture and plenty of luck (there is always miscarriage, accidents etc.) the embryo may turn into a human being (i.e. a baby).
But the fact that it has the full chromosome number doesn’t make it any more human than it makes an acorn same as an oak tree. An acorn has the same chromosome count as a fully mature oak tree. But it would be absurd to claim that an acorn is the same as an oak tree. It is the same with embryo and a baby.
The more I read from this twit, the more I come to the conclusion that he's an aborted abortion.
