Re: Is a fetus a Human being?Jul 25th, 2009
AAP however, appears on the very first page, near the top of the page.
Lets not forget that at conception the embryo is smaller than this:
A microscope is required to see it. Yes it has all of the chromosomes but it's got a long way to go to become a human being.
Is an egg a chicken?
It's all semantics.
Next time your at the grocery store ask for a carton of chickens.
It's unlikely but not impossible.
Lets assume you were looking at a fertilized chicken egg. Would you think of it as a chicken or an egg?
I suppose that is answer you had to give but 99.9% of the population wouldn't.
Then 99.9% of the population is misinformed about the differences, but then, when it comes to chickens, or any other egg layer, they are only interested in eating it.
I candeled my chicken eggs and emu eggs for 2 reasons...chicken to ensure that they weren't fertilized before I sold em.( most people don't like seeing a devoloping chick fall into their frying pan)..emu, to ensure they WERE fertilized before I left em for the male to sit on.
And why should he do that? The burden of proof is upon those who claim that fetus is a human being. Currently accepted view is that it is not a human being, that is why abortion is legal in most countries in the world.
If you want to change the status quo, it is up to you to prove your case. You go ahead and prove that fetus is a human being. You havenít done that, several of you have been making that argument here, but I doubt if you have convinced anybody (certainly you havenít convinced me).
So taxslave doesnít have to do anything, those who claim that fetus is a human being since conception, they have to prove their case, convince the scientific community, who will then transmit their findings to us mortals (in the form of briefing, press release by AMA, CMA, GMC, articles in JAMA, Nature etc.). Then I will be convinced (and I suspect so will most people).
Even fertilized, I'll bet there isn't farmer in North America who would say "hey Martha, I'm going out to check on the baby chickens".
