But to be a person, you need memories and experiences. without that, your just some tissue with purpose.
i disagree with this. what of those with amnesia? it is well known that children learn in the womb, and remember their mother's voice.
even if we ignore all that, you would still be arguing that it is ok to kill something so long as it's potential hasn't been realized yet. it's rather a circular argument, preventing something from becoming a person so that it can be killed because it isn't a person...yet.

Are you talking about a newborn, being potential, or a first trimester fetus?
Because my memories go back to under 1 month, and all throughout my baby hood, and babies feel like you would if you closed your eyes and meditated. They are just like you and me, just need sleep more, so they're groggy, and need to be cuddled and feel safe, very important. They see, think, feel, and love being snuggled by their mother, delight in their mother. I remembered where everything was, the property, the lawn, when it was freshly mowed and prickly under the pink blanket my father put me on, and I thought I was in danger and cried and cried for him to pick me up. But he flashed a light, the camera. The picture was developed when I was 6 weeks old when I found it and discussed it with my mother. She said it was actually taken under a month, they took a while to get that batch developed.
So I hope you're not assuming something really odd about babies. They're not lesser consciousness or people.edit on 28-7-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
