ALEX PETROV said,
"What an incredible amount of fail."What an incredible amount of sin.
"Those who make this argument do not understand the difference between an autonomous human child and an embryo whose very existence is tied to the mother."So we can kill the unborn because it is dependent upon its mother? Given that your criteria for taking the life of the unborn is their degree of dependency, why not kill the 3 hour old born child as well since it is completely dependent upon another? Better yet, why not kill every adult in a coma since they are completely dependent upon others?
"A mother can choose to give up either child . . ."So you admit that the unborn is a child?
". . . for an embryo this can only mean death, but for a child there's this little capability called adoption."Why not allow the unborn child to be born and then adopt it out?
"Creating a human being goes far beyond conception, and saying that conception should force a person to go through the whole process without their consent is ridiculous."So we kill people because they get in our way? This sounds like Third Reich logic.
I hope the Christians reading this have paid attention to what was said above; for this is where secular bioethics when you reject the idea that people are created in God's image and by virtue of that fact alone they are worthy of dignity and respect.
