And it was fine, but I just find this discussions so frustrating and uninteresting. The arguments are these:
1. Life begins at implantation. A fetus is a person within the meaning of the 14th amendment of the Constitution and therefore has a constitutionally protected right to life. Abortion is murder.
2. At least until the fetus is viable, the fetus is part of the woman’s body and she may elect to do with her own body as she wishes. Abortion is a medical procedure. A fetus prior to viability is not a constitutional person.
And we’re done. Neither argument will ever be able to convince the other side. I also figure that, look, we all agree that reducing unwanted pregnancies is probably a good idea. Let’s argue about that, where we have actual empirical data, instead of this other tortured question that people evidently never change their minds on.
