NARAL: ‘Tactic Of Humanizing Fetuses’

I realize we’re not supposed to ask “hahrd” questions, but it would be helpful if the Servants of Moloch could explain something.
Accepting for the sake of argument that humans are not continuously human from conception on through death, how DOES the fetus transition from non-human to human state? What magical chrysalis occurs, when the embryo goes from non-human to human status?
I realize that this is a key component of abortion mythology, but I’ve never heard any proponent of the fiction explain it.

    Unfortunately the fallacy doesn’t bother people, because they’re not arguing, but rationalizing an a-priori conclusion

    Bingo. Stated differently, the fetus is not a human, because the perpetrator of abortion wants to be able to abrogate his responsibility.

    What I want to know is, if a foetus isn’t really a separate human being, does that mean that a pregnant woman has two heads, four eyes, and twenty fingers and toes?

    Remember the movie “Look Who’s Talking”? It was centered around a baby in the womb which not only grabbed for Doritos, but spoke English!
    I don’t remember feminists having a cow when that came out in 1989. Feminists have become progressively (pun intended) more deranged since then.

    I was arguing with a pro-choice fanatic who was gleefully saying that men had no rights at all to keep any woman from an abortion ever. So I told her that if men have no rights regarding the child, then they shouldn’t have any responsibilities either, and thus no woman should be able to get paternity money from any man ever.

    Of course the deranged nutjob had no answer for that one.

  • Mr. Teebs

    The autonomy of the body is not absolute. You cannot legally commit suicide in many places, cut off your own limbs, ask a medical professional to do it for you, etc. The state treads carefully – as it should – about laws prohibiting what you can do with your own body, but such laws exist and are certainly not without precedent.

    Living Waters (Ray Comfort’s) new movie “180” is worth watching for a very good treatment of the cognitive dissonance surrounding abortion. It’s free on YouTube. Our collective amnesia as a culture is frightening.
