That wasn't meant for you to detour into other social programs as we are talking about valuing the life of a defenseless baby in the womb. Funny you seem to think that a baby is a human once it hits your criteria when the following things are present very early in development:
The cardiovascular system is the first major system to function. At about 22 days after conception the child's heart begins to circulate his own blood, unique to that of his mother's, and his heartbeat can be detected on ultrasound.At just six weeks, the child's eyes and eye lids, nose, mouth, and tongue have formed.Electrical brain activity can be detected at six or seven weeks,and by the end of the eighth week, the child, now known scientifically as a "fetus," has developed all of his organs and bodily structures.By ten weeks after conception the child can make bodily movements.The truth is Abortion is wrong and should not be something that is allowed. If you don't believe that then you are severely lacking any sense of morality. Now going back to your point about "OH but what about heathcare, food, etc. I have no problem supporting those initiatives and helping the poor/needy/hungry. But when it comes to social programs i think our law makers and we the people need to come up with a cost efficent way of taking care of our people where it doesn't blow up into some abused service or money pit that we throw money in. I think that's something any Republican and Democrat can come to agreement on. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
So what does qualify it as a human being? That it "Looks" like one? That it has to be 100% fully developed and near term before you classify it as a human?
Because i value human life, look i dunno what the hell they are teaching you guys out in CA but apparently it's not having any value of human life no matter how small. The fact that we have accepted basically killing babies in utero because the responsibility of raising and caring for that kid is a burden really shows how F-ed up our society is now.
Still what they did is simply gross and inhumane. Really? Its not bad enough we kill the baby we have to harvest the organs? I think an organization that does this needs to be shutdown... regardless on your pro-life / pro-choice stance.
