Also I would like to point out that more than likely somewhere in my body cells can be found that don't have my DNA within them.
It seems that the placenta doesn't catch as much as you think.
Everything from drugs, alcohol, and niccotine to DNA manages to pass thru it.
Should a living breathing kid be sacrificed because mom can no longer do the job that was earning the money for the medicine the kid needs to stay alive for the sake of a fetus just entering into the second trimester?
That is absolutely, completely, unequivocally false. Every single cell of your body has your DNA, or it will be rejected by your body as a foreign invader. That's why DNA is allowed as positive identification in a court of law.
Mothers around the world say they feel like their children are still a part of them long after they've given birth. As it turns out, that is literally true. During pregnancy, cells from the fetus cross the placenta and enter the mother's body, where they can become part of her tissues.
This cellular invasion means that mothers carry unique genetic material from their children’s bodies, creating what biologists call a microchimera, named after the legendary beasts made of different animals. The phenomenon is widespread among mammals, and scientists have proposed a number of theories for how it affects the mother, from better wound healing to higher risk of cancer.
Fetal cells are probably sprinkled throughout a mother’s brain. A study of women who had died in their 70s found that over half of the women had male DNA (a snippet from the Y chromosome) in their brains, presumably from when their sons were in the womb. Scientists often look for male DNA in women because it’s easier than distinguishing a daughter’s DNA from her mother’s. If DNA from daughters were included, the number of women with children’s cells in their brains would probably be even higher.
Although it was once thought that only mom’s cells could transfer across the placenta to deliver needed supplies to the fetus, we now know that fetal cells make the journey as well. Those fetal cells can be harbored in a mother’s tissues where they become incorporated, lasting decades after the birth. This likely means that every mother’s body contains both her own cells and genetics and tiny, but measurable amounts of her children’s cells and genomes.
I never mentioned working in the abortion industry. I was a screenprinter the closest we came to killing anything was locking the poor bird's who happened venture into the building for the night with the toxic fumes that would kill them.
Your understanding is correct. Essentially.
But you get all manner of gene editing going on, especially in the brain.
Keep in mind: you and I still agree on the goal....abortion is an evil that humanity perpetrates on itself.
I respect life too. The right of a life not to have to be the life support for another life, even if the denial of that life support means the death of a life. That's not a crime, it's a very difficult decision.
According to the USDA report, single-parent families who made less than $59,200 spent an average of $172,200 on raising their child from birth to 17. Georgia's average monthly child care payment is $430 per month - a far cry from what is needed.
