Your analogy breaks down and doesn't make sense. A tadpole is the neonatal stage of development in amphibians. If you're actually making this argument, you don't see even live born babies as human, at least not until they are pubescent.Further, you said that it's not a life if the mother is needed for survival. Are you implying that it's not alive until it can feed itself, or are you implying that early term (I believe 16 or 22 weeks is the earliest so far) babies are humans as they can survive and develop normally without being in there mother's uterus?
@TheKack I am not claiming fetuses are like tadpoles, si m. j ply that like frogs humans grow into what they will be while in the womb. I know we chang after birth but we all agree that is human life. The stages don't have to be comparable. It's just to show that like frogs humans are not necessarily the same with similar rights at all points of development.
It was not the God who killed the male newborns, but king Herod. God only wanted to protect the ones that were being victims and had their hearts opened to him, and those were Jewes.
@liburnia I'm talking about Passover, when Moses told Pharaoh that all the firstborn males in Egypt would die. Then 'god' (more like the MONSTER) told Moses to tell the Israelites to put blood over their doorposts, so the Angel of Death could go into the Egyptians houses ONLY and kill off the firstborn Egyptian males. The god of the Old Testament was a fucckin monster!
Technically fetus is not a baby yst but is for the most part much more than just dna. The problem with your definition that abortion is murder when the baby could be viable outside the womb is that as science progresses that treshold becomes smaller and smaller, soon scientists will be able to grow babies through the whole term - will then we agree that abortions should no longer be?
Ok I read your reply , how about s girl/woman who has been raped does that person have to go full term to give that child up for adoption or can she terminate the baby because she does, nt want to be reminded that she was raped dream on with your thinking
@itshandyandy I know being raped can be a terrible experience and without counseling it can ruin a persons life. A baby that came from a rape situation would be horrible but at the end of the day the baby didn’t ask to be in this world. Even if she was to terminate the baby, that rape will still affect her life because it’s what happened. You just can’t abort a baby and expect you’re going to forget what happened. That just doesn’t make sense to me. If you don’t want the child, give the baby up for adoption and then she can go on with her life.
Sorry I don't agree with your comments unless you or anyone you know that has been it that situation your comments will fall on deaf ears and mean diddly squat to that person
Your source is "Iowa View contributor" lol, it is basic scientific terminology that a fetus is not yet a baby. Humans have several pre-natal development stages.
@GD360 inconvenient truth.
Bullshit. That is not a 12-week fetus. It's not a fetus at all but an artist's creation. Why do the anti-abortion advocates habitually lie?
Depends at. what stage in pregnancy don't wait till third trimester. . if possible. An embryo or fetus r named such. Until its born breaths air.. it's not technically human or an individual..Murder is specific to. humans prior to birth.. mother is one with the potential child which is an extra organ or tissue.. the growth not capable off surviving independent from host can be removed this is an operation by a doctor no murder or killing takes place...
Okay, fair enough
Smart lady , wise words
@classicmusiclover Get some respect. No need for insults. You don’t know me.
@classicmusiclover you're projecting
Scott Peterson got charged with two counts of murder when he killed his pregnant wife Laci.
Because the baby was going to be born. There’s a difference.
@AuroraRoseat so it’s a person if it is wanted but trash if it isn’t?
