Sigh. It's not my fault that you can't follow from A to B.

If the we had the same laws here, and many are advocating for just that, then we'd have the same problems with doctors being afraid to cause a miscarriage that may be considered an induced abortion.

Stop being deliberately obtuse.

Women are female humans. Birth has nothing to do with who is, or isn't a female human. Jews are a race of sub-humans, which is why they can't be called persons. Birth has nothing to do with anyones race. Race is determined by genetics upon conception.

No you wouldn't, nobody wants to force a pregnant woman to die.

You get told this all the time and you still go back to the same old paranoia.

Nope,PP is the reason why "rappes" go unreported. Proaborts like you are the reason why they go unreported. You have been known to mock YOUNG girls that were abused and/or accuse rape victims of screaming rape to cover up their "sluttiness".

"you"? Sorry, but we live in the same country. That would be "we". And yes, we would. I never said ANYTHING about people wanting to force a pregnant woman to die. Stop re-wording my position.

This didn't happen because the Dominican Republic is a developing country. It didn't happen due to a lack of medical knowledge. It happened because of the law making abortion entirely illegal. If abortion was entirely illegal here, the same situation would start happening here as well.

I'm sorry you're not bright enough to understand simple logic.

Thank you for the biology lesson. I was not discussing race, but personhood.

It's a condition of birth to be a person.
It's a condition of conception to be a human.

To you, there may not be a difference - to me, words have meanings, which, while subtle, are nonetheless important.

Apparently we have many differences of opinion.

I, personally, am okay with that. Pun intended.

The thousands of young women killed here every day with abortion didn't choose to die. Making abortion entirely illegal will save most of them from their senseless deaths at the hands of the brutal tyrants that choose to kill them.

I have friends who always rent, even though they could easily afford to buy. They just like to be able to move when they want, as they're both retired. Since I've known them, nine years, they've moved four times. It DOES have the virtue of not needing to depend on the housing market, for those who don't care about owning.

Except for Paul Ryan, whose 'plan' would outlaw abortion without exception, and every Congressman who signs the 'Pledge to Life' which purports to exemplify their willingness to grant 'personhood'(but not citizenship status) to every zygote conceived on US soil, at the expense of women's citizenship while pregnant.

I argue that ‘being human’ is a sufficient condition for the application of the label ‘person’ to a living creature – note that a dead human being is no longer alive, therefore they are no longer a person, yet they were once a person. The reason I argue for the case of all humans being persons is that I see many issues with denying personhood to a human being. The reason I argue for all humans being persons is mainly not because of the implications of doing so, but the implications of not doing so. For example…

Abortion is justified by many in that until the foetus has reached a certain stage of development, it is not considered a person, and therefore the termination of an unborn child (before a certain stage of development) is not tantamount to murder. Therefore, if we begin to deny personhood to other human beings we can just as equally justify their killing, or even merely their mistreatment. Imagine living in a society which judged that you had lost your status as a person and therefore could be lawfully killed (not murdered) by a doctor without your consent.

Upon completion of this lesson students will understand that the embryo or fetus is a human person. They may be able to discuss past instances in which people were denied personhood. They may be able to discuss how a choice of vocabulary determines our view of personhood.
Choose any of the following:
1.The denial of the fact that the fetus is a person is a time-honored tactic. Throughout history, we see examples of people being denied their personhood. Have students choose one example and compare it to the current abortion debate. Examples can include: black slaver, women's rights, Jews in Nazi Germany, mentally challenged.
2. The language used by abortionists reflects their desire to deny personhood to the pre-born child. Terms such as "products of conception" mask the human reality of the child in the womb. Discuss with the class the difference between a fetus and a baby, an embryo and a child, etc. Then have students understand that all language will either affirm or deny the personhood and humanity of those around us. Have them track the language they hear throughout the day, counting how many dehumanizing terms they encounter in the hallways, on radio (especially rap songs), in magazines, etc.

Do you really think we are going to adopt all the practices of third world countries? No one for the umpteenth time is wanting to kill pregnant women.
