    Let me present an odd hypothetical: You are in a home where a fire has broken out. You only have time to quickly pick something up and run out. There are 2 zygotes inside of coolers which are alive, and there are 2 infants. You cannot carry all of them, you can only pick up 2. Would you have a difficult time deciding?

    Obviously that is a ridiculous scenario, but I use it only to highlight that I think the vast majority of people place a different value on a zygote and an infant. A zygote is a single cell. It has no heart, no brain, no organs at all. It has no body. It is a single cell. You may consider a zygote equal to a fetus, equal to an infant, equal to a child, equal to an adult. That's your prerogative. I don't think it's likely that you will convince most people that a zygote is equal to a human being at all stages of development, though. I certainly can't imagine placing the same value on a single cell that I do an adult or an infant. :dunno:

    And an infant is different than an adult.

    That is so fucking wrong, it is amazing you consider yourself an American.

    America lives by the credo that better ten guilty men go free than one innocent person be punished.

    I don't think America lives by that credo. Some may want to, but that doesn't seem to be the reality of our justice system.

    Again, your denials have already been defeated. Your side lost. Our fetal homicide laws already define and recognize "children in the womb" in ANY STAGE of development as human beings.

    Now, you can gripe, complain, both and moan about it all you might want to. ... but unless and until you convince lawmakers to change that definition, you can rest assured that prolifers and antiaborts like me are going to USE that definition to further challenge Roe.
