I never got the anti-abortion crowd. Month 7 where Jr. is waving at you on the grainy screen? Sure. Ya kinda ran outta time there. Month 1-3 where it can't survive absent the mom? That ain't "murder". That's just life potential. Also a great dividing line to leave the decision in the realm of the mother. It literally can't live outside her body; ergo how is it a "person"?
Gregor and Ata etc. step on an acorn or a lil green shoot on the way to work. Are they so upset that they sit shaken on a bench and are an hour late cuz they "killed a tree"? I doubt it. (I dunno. Maybe they're just papists :P)
What do you think it means if you're brain dead and technically can't survive without machines? Does that mean you're no longer human? Cuz people in my religion say yes but I'm not so sure
That's a different ball of wax. To my knowledge embryo month 1-2 is still playdoh so no machine options. Possibly end of month 3(?) 4 month preemies are defo critical condition. "..is there a Doctor in the house??"
