What does self sustaining mean. And if the baby isn't done growing of course it isn't self sustaining.

I'm not self sustaining, I depend on a whole lot of other people to live.

I don't know hardly anyone who's self-sustaining. You throw 99.9% of the people in this country into the woods (in nice weather, even) with nothing but the clothes on their backs and 99.9% of them will be dead in a week.

It's interesting how self-sufficiency is only important when justifying infanticide. In any other context, self-sufficiency is a dirty phrase, and something to discouraged at all costs because it promotes a lack of dependence on the state.

UNABLE TO SUSTAIN LIFE "OUTSIDE".


you disagree with that fact?


How do you know it has no conscious thought?

Measurable brain waves (as EEG) only appear past 25 weeks. Voluntary movements past 14 weeks. Reaction to external stimuli only after 14 weeks. It is safe to assume it doesn't have conscious thoughts.


You don't, just another mindless barbarian killing the LIFE within bellies.

Oh please. I never made my position clear, so stick those assumptions and that idiotic rethoric where the sun doesn't shine.

Life and Consciousness don't start because the tangible parts aren't all fully formed, that is what science is saying, "oh its still developing so it can't work blah blah blah", I don't believe that and never will.

The moment that spark ignites, a universe is born.

Don't impose your faith on me. I don't impose my science over you either

Man, I'm pretty much pro-life (except for a few instances), but I find it inappropriate to use medical data concerning fetal development dated from 1965.

I'm not saying that he information is faulty, I'm just saying that if you do not want to have to defend your quotes and links, you should certainly find more contemporary information to share, like from The Mayo Clinic, where it goes into semi-detailed information, week by week, concerning zygotic(?)/embryonic/fetal development.

As you can see, the embryonic stage, starting at week 5 (or, week 3 of post-conception development) is "when the baby's brain, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form," and by the end of week 6 (week 4, post-conception), the embryo's heart is already pumping blood. Week 7 brings rapid brain development, amongst other things.

By the time you're at week 11 (week 9, post-conception--cited as being the official start of the fetal stage), limbs have bones, feet have toes, neck is forming, eyelids are closing to protect developing eyes, the torso is straightening, and all kinds of other internal things have happened. By the end of week 11, the fetus' own liver is producing its own red blood cells and external genitalia will begin forming gender-appropriate organs, amongst other things happening.

I could go on and on, but I just wanted to show you that I support your claim that the Planned Parenthood information is intentionally misleading, for sure, but citing 50-year-old sources is not the best way to put forth your argument.

No its not. Concscious is far more complex and it isn't a verifiable measure. Infact there isn't any science that says so or concludes so, rather just going off what they deem it to be. Life is much more complicated then some scans.

Sure, barbarian.

Unless your directly involved in the pregnancy keep your opinions to yourself is my stance

Then stop clamoring for public financing.


I have no idea what your talking about???

Who wants financing and for what?

The gov shouldnt be giving money to either side on this issue

There is a difference between self-sustaining when talking about a fetus, and self-sufficiency when talking about an adult.

And as a side note, self-sufficiency should be the goal of every human being--that doesn't automatically make an individual non-societal to be able to want to be able to provide everything that they need for life ("need" being the important word). Why people prefer and or embrace reliance on government for certain basic needs is beyond me.





Disclaimer: Yes, I know there are those who absolutely cannot provide for themselves in many aspects of life--I'm generalizing humanity as a whole, not specific instances.

Why would she kill herself?


Because 14 yr old girls are notoriously bad at performing medical procedures on themselves.

And yet they are.

And as long as they are doing so, that makes it my business.

Take public financing out of elective medical procedures and you can go on about your business murdering children.

So a body with no measurable brain waves (the one requirement to call someone dead for sure) could still be conscious? Really?


Sure, barbarian.

not impressed. I've been called worse

So your only issue is that public money is being used and if that stopped you would be fine?

Some how I find that hard to believe.

I am not familiar with your posts and its hard to get a good idea from written words but dude you come across as a bit rabid.

Yes, because the baby isn't DEAD in the womb.

You have and make it abundantly clear, you may fool the other forums you crawled from, but on this site, we clearly see your position.


You can stop making a fool of yourself now

Who am I to judge if it is ok or not. It is not my womb.
I'm just pointing out the currect known facts.

Abortion is as old as society. Making it illegal again will not stop it. However, making it illegal again will risk the lives of women who for themselves decided they don't want to deliver a baby, for whatever reason.

There's infinite reasons. None of which are important.

You could say it was due to incestual rape, or perhaps she want's abortions for birth control, or perhaps she's doin it for a bet. It's completely irrelevant.

If there's a circumstance where this theoretical child cannot receive a safe abortion then the only option for them is an unsafe one.

science is saying, "oh its still developing so it can't work blah blah blah"

Neuroscience tells us key neuroanatomical features do need to develop sufficiently before consciousness arises.


I don't believe that and never will.

Your belief is not required.

I don't believe in your 'spark of life' religious woo woo either. Does that impact anything?
