This is a comment by patrick on the post “The Modern Attack on Reproductive Rights“.
I disagree with everything you say, but will only comment on a few things. When a sperm enters an egg, something amazing happens. That egg now has it’s own unique genetic code. Yes, I will fall on that. No, I am not religious at all. I am just against senseless killing and murder, and abortion is certainly murder.
It is the extermination of unique individuals with genetic codes (albeit dependent on a mother while in fetal state, with or without feelings of fear) ultimately on a path to becoming a fully developed baby if everything is gestationally within normal limits.
Dear writer, you must examine your argument and ask yourself if there is a way to “boil it down” further. Aren’t sleeping people or people in comas without feeling that we can see or somehow acknowledge? I am no sleep or coma specialist, but I have never seen or heard of a sleeping person or someone in a coma record what they were feeling while unconscious.
