Just to add… Throughout history, whenever one group wanted to kill another group, they first had to dehumanize them. It happened with blacks, it happened with Jews, disabled people, and of course it happens with babies in the womb.
De-humanize "babies" in the womb? So....women who are pregnant get to drive in the car pool lane because they have a "baby"....in fact, they should get a moving violation ticket for having two people behind the wheel of the car....in fact, they should be charged for two people at buffets...and airlines...and movies......
I clearly stated it was his god.
If you are going to be an asshole, at least not sound like an idiot.
I never said that pre-borns were exactly like other human beings, obviously they are not. So it is either silly or disingenuous to come up with examples having to do with practical, everyday matters, as opposed to life or death matters.
What we should be talking about is how in many states, when a pregnant woman is murdered, the perpetrator is charged with double homicide (or manslaughter.) Or, how certain doctors, when treating a pregnant woman, state that they are treating two patients, not one.
The interesting (but sad) thing is that when a baby is wanted, everyone recognizes that baby as a person...but when a baby is unwanted, even at the same exact age as the wanted baby, all of a sudden it's an entirely different story, the baby is just a lifeless blob, a disposable piece of garbage. The two babies are exactly the same, the only difference is one is wanted and the other is not wanted.
Our humanity should not be dependent on whether or not we are wanted. We are either human, or not. And all human beings have the most basic human right, to life.
oh my god, just answer the question. I pretty much cited the reasons you gave about your friend getting her abortion. And so far your only answer has been, “well that’ll never happen.” Uh, yes that absolutely could happen. And stop avoiding the question. Trump is president, any fucking thing can happen at this point.
All kinds of things are alive without us granting them the sort of protection and value we do with people.
If a pregnant woman is murdered it’s a double murder. Correct? Thank you fk
Do we protect trees? How about plants. But we don’t protect babies! Shamefkingful
Empowering women to make their own choices about abortion is absolutely the ethical and moral thing to do.
