It's just the beginning parts of a pregnancy, and I don't see it (as I said before) as any different than the beginning stages of cooking. What we value is the life of a human being. That is undeniable and obvious. But stopping the process of development before a fetus becomes a human being is no more a big deal than starting to build a car and deciding, 'nah, I don't want to build a car' and stopping. Now you just have car parts... But you can't say you destroyed a car, because there never WAS a car. I've never heard a good argument the other way. What I hear over and over again is this:
Conservatives: God made me special as soon as I came out of my Dad's dick!
Liberals: Keep your God out of the bedroom! Unless you have a vagina you can't have an opinion!
Can you even think of two more uninteresting, unenlightened, backwards, points of view about any subject? It's almost like people don't even want to make sense any more.
