As usual Maslo, your logic is excellent. While I don't always agree with your positions, I respect that you have the courage to lay it out, even if in doing so, it will bother the average person.
I know someone will be here shortly to scold me and say that "science" is on their side, but from my point of view, something like "personhood" (and rights that go with it) is out of the realm of science. I suppose advancements can be made, but I would have a hard time thinking that science will resolve the matter. It can shed light on the issue, it can perhaps help with the limits, and reasons you mention, but I can't see how it can ever do much more than that.
I appreciate you shining the light of logic on the topic, and pointing out the inconsistencies. Regardless of a person's position on the matter, I think they could benefit from at least maintaining internal consistency with the things they (supposedly) believe.
