When is it a baby? Let’s see, before an ‘egg’ is fertilized, it sits on the wall of the uterus, where it remains if fertilized. If not fertilized, it flushes out during menstruation. Is it a baby then?
You obviously need to go back to your biology class. An unfertilized egg is not a baby.
Are women killing babies every period? Is it a baby right after the sperm enters it?
Yes, it is a baby after the sperm meets the egg. The reason is, and if you understood biology you would get this, if left alone, with proper conditions, it will develop into a baby. Therefore, the only thing that it lacks is time for development. A single sprout coming out of the earth is just as much a tree as a 100 year old oak tree. All it lacks is time to develop.
It is a microscopic cellular organism sitting attached to a uterine wall. This part of the woman’s body is no different than her liver, kidneys, heart, or lungs. It is part of ‘HER’.
No, it is not “part of her,” and again, if you had any kind of simple biological knowledge, you would know that as the baby develops, it has a completely separate blood system, nervous system, etc. It is, in fact, so different from the mother that there can be problems if the RH factors conflict between the baby and the mother.
The other argument you use is fallacious because by the time most women know that they are pregnant, the child is well-formed and recognizably human. It is not “tissue” that is being sectioned and destroyed, it is a baby human.
The ‘egg’ is not yet a ‘human’ baby. Selection of life happens constantly in mammals and the female mammal will have many spontaneous abortions, meaning an egg that may have been fertilized but flushes out on its own.
But we are not animals. We are rational beings with the ability to choose right and wrong. This is why the abortion industry has worked hard to present the pro-death argument as having certain rational reasons for being right. But choosing to kill a living human being is not the same as a spontaneous miscarriage. And this wording “spontaneous abortion” is typical of how the pro-death crowd tries to reframe the argument in their favor. An abortion is a deliberate act of terminating a life. Not the same as God (or unthinking natural causes if you don’t like the word God) causing the pregnancy to end.
And philosophically, what does it do to you and all those who choose to do violence to a living being? You are making a rational choice to kill a living being which will become a human being. Our rational choices are what makes us human, but to make immoral rational choices degrades us as human beings, whether it is the choice to kill another human being or to rob people blind like they do on Wall Street.
People need to learn science and understand the difference between the various stages of an ‘egg’ before it becomes a fetus, which is a PART OF THE WOMAN’S BODY, and a human being. I would no more likely allow you or anyone to make legislation about when or how my heart beats than I would allow you to make determinations about what goes into or out of my uterus.
No, YOU need to learn science and understand that the fetus, from the moment of conception, is not part of your body, and as it develops, that becomes quite clear.
As for not letting things into your uterus, this whole argument would be null and void (and unneeded) if women would stop letting men into their vaginas unless the man was married to them and committed totally to them. This is why in Africa the people there are opposing the efforts of the United States to bring them abortion and contraception - they believe in marriage, family, and children, not random fornication for “fun” (the Playboy Philosophy)
