Re: Refuse to choose® women deserve better® than abortionJul 24th, 2009
S.J. please answer one question for me..........what leads you to believe it is some other specy?
We have been through this before, JLM. I am not saying it is some other species. I don’t know what it is, and scientists cannot tell us. Scientists cannot say for sure when the fetus become s a human life.
That is a very profound, difficult question, because before we answer it, we have to define what we mean by human life. What exactly constitutes humanity? By and large we agree that after birth it is human life (though in rare cases even that would be controversial, look at Terri Schivo case).
But a fetus doesn’t’ look human, especially in the early stages. So before we decide that it indeed is human, we have to establish what we mean by ‘humanity’. And that opens up a whole new can of worms.
As I have said before, it is a difficult question, with no easy answer.
When you look at a tadpole it is a baby frog going through development into a frog.
Fetus is the same may not look like a human but at the end looks like a human.
How about a baby that has downs syndrom doesn’t look human at birth does that mean that it isn’t? No it is this argument does not apply
