I heard about this story when it aired.  Every single day the doctors had to decide whether or not to abandon the baby as hopeless.  It's not a normal outcome in any sense.

Yet.  But as technology advances...

Total regression:  sperm and egg are viable; masturbation and menstrual cycle are murder.

Sperm is not a developing human life.   An egg is not a developing human life.

Combine the two bolded statements.  One day, I may have children through an asexual process... you know... as technology advances.

Here's the difference:  For a very long time, many, many fetuses have been viable since day one (in the womb).  This is the case today.  I'm not aware of any current asexual human reproduction.

I would also add that the law can and often does define the unlawful killing of a fetus as homicide while still not defining the fetus as a human being.

The new record is 21 weeks:

As science gets better, fetuses start turning into people.

Indeed, 21 weeks is a bit over half a pregnancy; now what are the potentially horrible side effects of being born that premature?  How many babies survive when born that premature?

1. The side effects are not as bad as being dead.

2. This was the first baby and not likely the last.

I disagree.

So, what class of people, now living, do you suggest we exterminate?

I disagree.

Didn't want to touch it, but yes, there are worse things than not existing.

I think you can only decide that for your own life.

I never knew that sperm had a heartbeat, or had brain activity, or little arms and finger buds. Anyone who cannot admit that a fetus is differant than an egg or sperm is lying to themselves. Didn't we all watch that video in Jr High?

mmmhmmm.  And what's the earliest point in a pregnancy that a viable child might be born?

abortion always ends in the murder of a baby. killing = death.

piss off.

You have to agree that all abortions produce a death.

Not in the context of this-- your!-- thread.

Good point.  I should have asked if it is safer for the mother.

Inasmuch as male masturbation or the female menstrual cycle produces a death.

hth.

It doesn't because a fetus is human (if not a person).
