I see this argument so often that I'm starting to wonder if the "pro-lifers" are actually fantasizing about murdering their own children. Given
that you seem to see no difference between a single cell undergoing meiosis, and a ten year old, it wouldn't surprise me.
I already stated I'm not against abortion. I do feel women who are raped or victims of incest should be able to have abortions. Also whenever the
mother's life is in danger because of the pregnancy.
Women who are just lazy and don't have a sense of responsibility to NOT get pregnant in the first place, well sorry I don't feel bad for them.
To me there is a point where it becomes a child, and this is sometime before birth. Where exactly that line gets drawn seems like a huge gray area,
which is why I think it's dangerous. When it's nothing but a collection of random cells, no, I wouldn't call that a child. When it's something
that resembles a human more than a tadpole, I'd call it a child. At 16 weeks, that's a tiny tiny human child, not JUST a bunch of cells.
Would you, or fans of abortions have any problems with taking their 20 week aborted fetus and throwing it off a bridge? Taking that little tiny person
and doing something like that? You probably would have an issue with it, because deep down you know that's a child, NOT just a few cells.
And no, I don't think about killing my children, I don't have any. I think my line of questioning makes perfect sense, as I consider a fetus with a
head, legs, and arms to be a person, not just random cells, so if it's OK to kill that, then it should be OK to kill a child at any age. I personally
don't see the distinction, they are BOTH human children, just because one is inside a woman doesn't mean it should be killed.
