quote: Human Life, as in the kind that earns the protection of law, is based around the idea of human intelligence and human consciousness. We know that these functions are rooted in the brain, therefore an undifferentiated ball of cells certainly does not qualify.
quote: There is no biological argument that a zygote deserves the same legal protections as a grown human being. The only arguments for it are based in the idea that human sperm meeting human egg create/are granted a soul, which is a purely religious argument.
quote: A plant "learns" to spread its roots out and around solid objects in order to get more water, does that relate to consciousness or intelligence? It is still considered life. An amoeba has a single cell and swims around and has a purpose, a single celled life. So how is that any different than a human baby? It isn't.
quote: Same argument, life is life no matter if it has consciousness or intelligence. A human baby uses pre-programmed instinct for the first year of its life.
quote: Human reproduction creates another human, the fact that it is life as soon as the sperm and egg meet and will become another sentient human, even though it may not be for the first few months, means its ok to kill that life?
quote: You liberals really have a twisted logic. "Save the trees and fish and puppy dogs, not the humans!" You try to sound smart and then relieve us of that belief as you type...
