    Biologists see with more than only their eyes.

    There is not doubt that a child's life begins at conception and there is no doubt that it is the child / offspring of the parents who created it. . . Even in the zygote stage of their development.

    Rotsa ruck. All these fetal homicide laws exclude abortion. What is your end game anyway? Are you going to put women in jail for getting an abortion? Death penalty? If a woman travels to another state where abortion is legal, will she be persecuted when she comes home? If a woman has a miscarriage, will she have to prove somehow that she isn't to blame? Will you demand that employers provide maternity leave? Will you ensure that poor women have access to prenatal treatment? Would you force a prepubescent girl to go through a full term pregnancy? Jail for smoking a cigarette while pregnant? For having an alcoholic beverage? Maternity police going around making sure pregnant women are in compliance? And what are you going to do once the precious, wonderful fetuses are born and turn into societal leeches and parasites?

    Is he trade off worth it though? All I can do is imagine, what it must e like for an innocent person to know they are going to die for a crime they did not commit :(

    One would think that if it is generally thought that a convicted person is innocent that the authorities would move heaven and earth to get them out of prison, but doesnt really work that way.

    That troubles me more than anything else, when the authorities are pretty damned sure that they are sending an innocent person to prison and they do it anyway.

    I cannot accept the killing of an innocent sentient person for any reason. I admit that my position is internally inconsistent with abortion. This is omething I will need to work out.

    Can those of you who support the death penalty and oppose abortion say as much?

    I wish other people would stay the hell out of an individual's uterus.

    You say that but I bet you also claim that a child's right to the equal protections of our laws should begin when their life does.

    So. . .
