You cannot say it's not a human because it has no brain, for the brain of a human is virtually not special until a ways after it is born. Furthermore it is a fact that not all brains of all ages are the same, so having a brain is not an entry right to being a human person, for children do not have adult brains.

If I were to drink a bottle of Jack, then go joyriding, blow a red light and kill a pregnant mother, I would be facing 2 vehicular manslaughter charges, right?
Sell some bad "junk" to a pregnant fiend and she dies?
Yet, mommy chooses to end that same life, it's her right.
Is it or isn't it a life?
Science is not infallible, I can think of many times where science "proved" something only to have it disproved with "newer, better" technology. Just the fact that there is not a "standard" answer to when life begins should tell us exactly how little we know.

They're not reproducing if they're aborting.
I don't support the murder of children. That being said, I feel I don't have much of a say in it, already being a parent and not in a position to have another. But if women would call it what it is, murder of a human being, instead of sugar coating it with flowery terms like "reproductive rights", "abortion", "pregnancy termination", maybe fewer murders would be committed.
Again...is WAR not murder of a human being? In fact hundreds of thousands of them?

I'm willing to debate anyone in the debate forums on when the biological life of a human being begins.
I say conception...you can choose your position.
I have asked this in multiple abortion threads over the years...no one has accepted...I wonder why???
Irrelevant. I accept it is death of life. And a woman's right to choose. You really think a woman makes this choice out of some belief that there is not a living thing growing in her? You must try to be more sensitive and less narrow minded.edit on 27-1-2012 by spiritualzombie because: (no reason given)

I love this topic. It really shines a light on the silliness of the anti-government conservatives.
"Keep big government out of my life! Liberty! Freedom! Except for this! Now please insert big government into a woman's body post haste! My invisible sky daddy commands it!"
The hypocrisy is ludicorus.
Irrelevant to me too. I do not value other people just because they are biologically alive and have certain order of nucleotides in their DNA.
Sometimes, abortion is the most responsible choice.
So you are making up your own words and definitions
I'm for protecting human life...not certain groups that YOU decide are worth protecting...all human life.
It's not irrelevant...it's fact...which is why you won't challenge it.
So why not say that you support the killing of humans (read murder)...in most cases just to make a women's life "easier"???
Great...YOU do not value our youngest humans. Who else don't you value that you think we should kill off? Mentally retarded? Poor? Old?
