I'll ask you the same thing I've asked others, on a biology test when there is a question that says "When does animal life begin?" Is the correct
answer "conception/fertilization" or is it some other point in the development of the organism???
Just because you believe the process of life begins at fertilization, doesn't make it human being. But arguing with you is pointless, this is your
opinion, and your interpretation of what biology says. Apparently, according to yours and afew others criteria, everybody else should follow it. I
don’t know why you think this is going to be the case. People must follow your views and standards because you think it's fact? You're not going
to convince folks on the opposite end that way.
As a side note, there are many folks who believe a fertilized egg is a human in every way, but they also believe that abortion is ultimately the
choice of a woman. Just because you hold this belief doesn’t take away that choice.
No, just like I don't think there need to be laws that makes a crime scene out of everytime a human life ends. Life ends all the time...there
are a lot of different reasons why. Someone can die from being sick, not a crime scene, someone can die from falling, not a crime scene...but if that
person was pushed by someone else...yes...a crime.
So a fertilized egg can "die" for many reasons...but unless it is caused directly and deliberately by another person...it wouldn't be a crime
We know a fertilized egg can die for many reasons, that wasn’t really my initial point to you. My point was, considering the number of woman out
there with fertilized eggs, and the circumstances to which many of those fertilized eggs cease to exist, it is silly idea to think that the government
will be able to distinguish the circumstances of all these fertilized eggs, it is the inevitability of abortion and it is a practice that has been
around for centuries.
Yes, we have humans that die naturally and these incidences do not warrant actions of the law. That being said, the majority of human deaths, natural
or unnatural, are suspect from the start, and are investigated. Somebody may die of a heart attack, but we may not know that without investigating, so
these is standard procedure to investigate cause. This poses an implication for the law concerning fertilized eggs and their ‘human rights’. The
mothers have full control, and nature has given that responsibility to their bodies. That is a fact of biology that appears to be inconvenient to
folks such as yourself. You can't treat a womb as a public setting.
The laws don't have to target women at all...it targets the practice. Anyone who performs an abortion and is caught...would be guilty of a
crime. Anyone who is caught getting an abortion would be guilty of a crime.
Yep, good luck with that. Essentially you propose a law that will not change the reality of abortion, it will demonize the few in society in the hopes
of changing minds and minimizing abortions. As well, these laws will only serve by forcing many other women into back alleys or other dangerous
methods, consequences all for the sake of your morals and ethics. Oh yes, and at the expense of tax payer money.
You act like it is an outrageous idea...and yet suicide and assited suicide is illegal...and we don't have to have "suicide police" knocking
on peoples door
Actually I support the rights of people of age to go through with assisted suicide, and frankly, we don’t have enough pro-lifers who care enough for
actual born human beings to propose some law to prevent this.
You are attempting to sensationalize to make the enforcement of a simple law seem unrealistic.
It is unrealistic. The rate of abortions out there, the access to contraception, the morning after pill, the ability for women to cross the borders to
seek medical advice, the willingness of women to seek abortions underground, you're not going to do much to change the cycle. These laws you propose
won’t do anything but showboat the agenda and ethical standards of pro-lifers like yourself, with tax payer money being thrown into the mix.
You’ll harass afew women to make an example and expect these legal measures to change the cycle of abortions and those decisions of choicers. In the
end what will happen will be a less sympathetic response to the pro-life movement and bigger invasive government.
The woman herself will always have the power over her own body, even during pregnancy, as nature has intended. You have your own ethical and moral
standards? Well that’s only an opinion you hold, an opinion you consider ‘fact’, but an opinion in the eyes of many others.
