Quoting SirJosephPorter 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).
Quote: The opening message proves the fetus is human, where is it you find that a human fetus is not human? Just show me, I'm not locked in the post I made.
Perhaps the currently accepted view is that a fetus isn't a human, but I still defy anyone to show us where the appropriate science supports that view (IOW, most people are ignorant of the facts).
There is LOADS of scientific evidence pointing to fetuses being human. I just reasearched it. Couldn't find anything by any scientist involved in biology that said different. They quibble about at what point a zygote becomes human or at what stage an embryo becomes human but none I found mention anything about a living thing poofing into a human at birth.
BTW, Sir Joe Pompous, I did include a pdf fromthe AMA/JAMA that indicated their position. So you didn't even bother to read very much of my research. Not that you'd recognize evidence anyway.
