It doesn’t matter whether embryo or fetus being a person. It’s still a human life.
Years back, these same atheists believe that rats came about from rags (and these days they believe human came from some hot soup). Don’t let them convince you that abortion is OK, because it is NOT!

Hi jeremiah. I’m glad to answer your question because I am consistently discouraged by all the obfuscation around this issue. You an I disagree about an embryo or fetus being a person. Pretty simple. The fact that pro-choicers give up this ground so easily and focus on the language of individual choice avoids the issue and consequently the debate turns into one side arguing for the right to choose to kill. It’s the right to choose to think. To use reason to decide whether or not a 4 cell glob is a person, or a person-shaped glob is a person, or a person-shaped glob with finger prints is a person and so on. Tough stuff but its the real question. I’m glad we agree that all the person-shaped globs screaming and running away from our army and our bombs are people. If your religion tells you that my snot is sacred and must be left in my nose until god makes it fall out, sorry, I’m going to blow my nose. If your god says life begins a conception go ahead and listen but you can’t make me believe that.

how can so many of you rightly see the killing innocent women and children in a war zone as wrong but you cannot see that murdering a defenseless unborn child in the womb by abortion is also just as wrong, if not more so? Instead you condemn one and celebrate the other even though they are both the same thing - the taking of innocent life. i don’t understand how so many in the anti-war crowd who oppose the war on “moral” grounds cannot see the hypocrisy in these two positions ( and in case you were wondering, i do believe the iraq war is an unjust war)

Death by Democracy apparently is not an impeachable offense.
I can not wait until election day! So many bush lickers. So few election days.

Picasso said it 75 years ago. Nothing has changed. “Guernica” had to be removed from the room at the UN where Colin Powell gave a news conference prior to the assault on Iraq. Our shame is too great.
