I'm trying to understand your point of view not just to refute it.
Agreed, thats why it is very important for us to define where life begins. Which again i would point at conception as being the only consistent point in development to define... as it was the start of the process so to speak. Anything after that and your defining person-hood based on development of the baby... which i would also ask why something such as a heart-beat makes you human.
To explain my view, I believe that pregnancy gives an opportunity to evaluate and through abortion have the option to terminate a pregnancy before it becomes a child.
My main issue with this stance is regardless of why women want to make those choices (convenience, rape, etc) if we believe that is a real child in her womb than by aborting it is murder (I would excuse abortion when there are health risks to the mother). I want children & mothers to have a good easy life, but deciding to terminate a life because life will be hard is not a moral good choice. I was a 3rd unexpected child to a poor family. Ive seen hard times in my life but im still glad i got the chance to live.
I guess i dont mean to sound like a broken record here but when and why does it become a person? I take no issue with someone getting rid of a clump of cells if it could be proven to not be a baby, but again i think it needs to be defined.
Ironically going to the religious points, this article shows domination all over the board with where life begins (this was a quick google search). I truly feel that conception is most consistent and logical point to go to... and i think it can be logical concluded using a worldly view point.
I was going to type more but its getting late. Hopefully the above made some sense, if not ill try to clarify better later.
jimmy is OK in my book. granted, we agree on little in the realm of politics,religion, and a slew of other topics, but he generally speaks his truth without being a self-righeous asshole.
I actually really do appreciate you saying that.
that said, i’m against banning him.
i dont like everything that is posted but i agree, banning is wrong.
