    We have no problem turning off life support on a patient that is BRAIN DEAD. I thought about this and how it relates to the abortion issue and developed the concept of BRAIN LIFE......the point at which the brain begins sending signals,etc....Most experts believe it is somewhere in the 14-16 week post-conception range. But wherever it is that is the beginning of BRAIN LIFE!

    So if it is ok to let a person die AFTER they are BRAIN DEAD...
    then shouldn't it be ok to let a person die BEFORE there is BRAIN LIFE?
    I say yes....and that is why I favor legal abortion prior to BRAIN LIFE!

    If you were a physician, you would realize that when someone is determined to be "brain dead", they are legally dead. They do not die any more after brain death.

    I'm Catholic so I believe that life begins at conception, and ends when God decides it ends. It would be cool if, when considering this topic, one could factor in that not all of us believe the same way. That is why I am personally against abortion. However, because I also believe in freedom, I believe that I do not have the right to insist that my beliefs outweigh other peoples.

    If other people could recognize my right to my own beliefs, instead of insisting that their beliefs take priority over mine, that would be very cool.

    Brain death is not the end, one can still be a productive right winger with zero brain activity.

    Brain dead is different situation though. Someone can have a living will, and have DNR directions to the hospital, whereas a fetus can't. Two different situations that you can't really compare with one another.
