I don't care about your personal life. Get sterilized. Use condoms. Use bc. Have sex with no one or millions. Don't care. Don't care about anyone else's either. I only care if it impacts someone else.

Because they are religiously insane morons, who’s belief in an imaginary cloud being rules their miserable lives. For the most part they had kids they didn’t want so they think everyone else should suffer the same fate. Losers one and all. a reply to: musicismagic

The question is, "Does it impact...YOU"?

Does someone down the street suffocating their 1 month old impact me? Is that the new metric?

Religion plays literally zero role in it.

Nope.

Isn't this the key? When a fetus can be considered a person. Personally I see it as around 26 weeks CNS development with 24 week cut off period for abortions. Before then there's no capability to impact on it as there's no sense of pain/awareness etc...

I don't see a basis for imposing such drastic and life changing restrictions on a person without evidence it'd. Not aimed at you, aimed at people who take a personal view as far as removing a person a say in what they can and can't do with their body. There must be a basis for it as so many take it that far but can't wrap my head around it myself.

Then why are we talking about whether it impacts me since you agree it's meaningless?

I'm pointing out that both this issue and your ridiculous scenario aren't affecting you. You're projecting your belief on others. I'm of the opinion everyone should just mind their own f'n business.

And what determines that? Does the DNA change at that stage to human DNA? You want arbitrary dates assigned to allow what you want allowed. I refuse to be led in my decision by arbitrary meaningless things.

So maybe you can explain why that date is important and why the lifeform at that point becomes human when it's previously not human.

Then you think murder and rape are fine. I don't. You are right I am projecting on you that killing people who can't defend themselves is wrong. Sorry you don't think it is.

The SCOTUS thinks it's fine, not me. Issue settled. IDK what murder and rape have to do with it by this point. More projection.

I have adopted a can't loose philosophy regarding abortion. I know it's murder, plain and simple. I am against it completely. But I don't have the right to tell others what to do. And I don't have to live with the repercussions of taking a life, the mother does. And that is between her and God. (Even if she doesn't believe in him)

Exactly. If it's legal they can do it. It doesn't change what it is.

Exactly. I'm actually pro-life. I'm also pro- mind your own business.

I consider myself pro choice. I believe abortion is a necessary medical procedure and needs to he available when it's necessary.

Foetal development, it's science not arbitrary dates. The 26-28 week period marks the end of the second trimester and start of the third. In the third trimester a fetus becomes capable of feeling pain and lungs develop. Before then there's no capacity to feel, be aware, be concious etc...

It's arbitrary.

So it's the ability to feel pain that makes us human? So someone that is in an accident and loses the ability to be aware and be conscious stops being a human?

Are they not alive until your arbitrary cutoff? If they are alive what lifeform are they since they are not human?
