I want you to explain to me how a human should be treated.

When I see a 2-month pregnant woman who needs to begin chemotherapy or radiation therapy immediately to save her own life, I have no ethical dilemma. There is only one life to be saved, the life of the mother. The fetus can't survive without the mother, the mother can't survive with the fetus, this fetus is not alive and will never be alive. The mother is alive. Her decision to continue living or die without treatment is the only one that matters.

Once the fetus can survive the death of the mother, it is alive, and becomes a member of society. At no point before that is it alive.

This is one of those rare occasions when the law, medical science, common sense, and the bible are all in agreement: A fetus is not a human at conception. All agree that the fetus is property. Medical science abstains and the bible disagrees with the rest on who that property belongs to, but it is property.

A baby is alive as soon as it begins to develop at conception. It will be born alive unless it is killed or dies of natural causes.

You keep using extra ordinary circumstances in your examples while the reality is most Abortions are merely a means of shucking the responsibility of being irresponsible.
You don't care about the truth...you just want it to be the way you want it to be.

I don't think your capable of facing, knowing, the truth in this matter. I might as well quit wasting my time on you about this.

Our children are our responsibility but no one is someone else's property. That is something humans all agree....only the lowest of the low think one can own another.

Death of the mother prior to viability of the fetus = death of the fetus. The fetus is not alive until it can survive the death of the mother.

Ah, I see. So you want irresponsible people raising children. Common sense disagrees with you.

The law, medical science, common sense, and even the bible support my position. Who is it who doesn't care about the truth and just wants it to be the way he wants it to be?

I think that would be wise.

Yeah that is a tough one....and most abortions are liberals so it does have a down side I admit...but murder is still murder

The law is corrupt...not all medical science agrees that is a lie...and common sense is not so common...you have it wrong for example.


I think that would be wise.
You are not qualified to say what is wise.

Quite a true statement, if the mother dies then the fetus would die also unless the mother is placed on life support however that is not an uncommon practice in this day and age. Science and medicine are on your side, I spoke with a neonatal pediatrician on the subject and he considers abortion under all circumstances to be the taking of human life.

Ah, yes. The law disagrees with you, therefore it must be corrupt. Couldn't be that your position is insignificant and all-around harmful to existent people in favor of non-existent people.

My advice to you is to concern yourself with actuality, not potentiality. The well-being of the woman walking into the abortion clinic is of greater concern to me than the clump of goo she has growing inside her; the ticking timebomb that would cause not the joy that the birth of a child should bring, but suffering and hardship.

Every child should feel she is wanted, that her parents chose to bring her into this world. No child should ever feel that her existence is a mistake; that she owes her existence not to her parents conscious decision, but to society's insistence that her parents be prohibited from correcting a grievous error. The world you would make for us is truly disgusting. The ugliness that is abortion pales in comparison to the sick, twisted immorality you would impose upon our society.

Week 21 The baby begins to swallow amniotic fluid exercising digestive system.

Week 22 Hair becomes visible and the body is covered with fine hairs to hold the vernix to the skin.
