If we are just aspects of a vaster organic animal system that has developed a strong physical need to have intercourse and produce copies of ourselves so that they too can do the same, pushing our animal dna though the ages, then why not, if we can even consider it, try to make a change. If we take this atheistic perspective then what is the problem?
The problem is that we all do not agree on that atheistic perspective.
There is also the ''religious'' view point that ''humans'' are different from the rest of the animal kingdom, that we are imbued with an essence that is not found in other critters. This perspective can and does hold to the ''we better not through a monkey wrench'' into the naturally God given plan for our cycles through the ages.
I had a suspicion that your objection to abortion was based more on ''humanitarian'' impulses than on religious grounds and that one is more difficult for me to take an opposing position, and I suppose that we may not differ as much as might be expected.
I guess that much of my position is based on my own desire to not even think about it.

Is this the new and imporved Democratic Party, that is promising Americans a "better way - better path forward" in 2020?!?

A Georgia lawmaker proposed a “testicular bill of rights” package Monday in response to the state’s advancement of a bill to outlaw abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Democratic state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick seeks to regulate male bodies in response to what she contests is the regulation of women’s wombs.
The bill would require men to ask permission from their partners before taking Viagra or erectile dysfunction medication.
Wait 24 hours before purchasing a sex toy.
The lawmaker wants to classify sex without a condom as “aggravated assault” and ban vasectomy procedures.
Men would also be forced to begin paying child support before a woman reaches eight weeks in pregnancy.
How is representative Kendrik's bill related to saving a baby's life, like the legislation she's responding to does? It sounds like she's just ANGRY that babies can't be murdered, after they have a heartbeat!
The New and Improved Democratic party is proving to be disgusting on so many levels.
I respect the position you hold on fertilization being the cornerstone of a person though I hold differently. I appreciate it for it's moral regard though for me it assumes a factual belief that I find myself not capable of achieving. Rather I hold that becoming human is an incremental process both physically and spiritually.
From the physical perspective I question at what point the ''human experience'' is begun, that is at what point does the fertilized egg begin the process of ''experiencing'' and hence beginning that incremental process.
