Maybe I don't remember.
That's not what I said though is it? Up to a certain point the development of all embryos is the same, so surely what sets us apart from pigs must happen after birth.

But you rather make this about the ownership of something and someone elses body than letting someone decide for themselves.
What makes a womans 'right' to choose more GD important than my own?
The whole "what about the life of the mother" argument is null and void in this day and age where a C Section can remove the child safely, while keeping the mother alive. The child could then go to a home of parents desperately wanting to have children but can not.
DOE v. BOLTON(1973)
The Court for the most part sustains this position: During the period prior to the time the fetus becomes viable, the Constitution of the United States values the convenience, whim, or caprice of the putative mother more than the life or potential life of the fetus; the Constitution, therefore, guarantees the right to an abortion as against any state law or policy seeking to protect the fetus from an abortion not prompted by more compelling reasons of the mother.

You obviously are buying into the conservative rhetoric without doing a bit of reading. Of course having children and grandchildren is going to sway you. You can't imagine a life without them. Personal feelings have NOTHING to do with what this bill is about.
