Here's my opinion: Until there's any brain activity, it's not alive. You're not killing anything. Until there's any brain activity, it's pretty much a large clump of cells. Almost like a tumour.

Technically it is alive since the cell is the smallest form of life there is. Brain activity or not, as long as it's made of cells, its alive.

Alive is not as black and white as you picture it. There are many different scenarios to what "alive" is.

Read my response to friedchickenman's comment.

Yeah again, Alive is not as black and white as you think. And no having something made up of cells does not make it "alive"
With all due respect it sounds like you need to check out some more biology.

Did you read my other comment?
I was not giving an opinion of any kind. And, I also said, I think is is morally right to kill cancer cells, in fact, any type of cell that causes more harm than good. If something is making someone else's life miserable, then kill it. But, killing an unborn child should fall under certain circumstances.

Oh no I am not accusing you of choosing if abortions are good or bad. I am just saying that you need to understand that there are many factors that come into play when talking about life. because you stated anything with cells is alive... So what if my finger got cut off and they could not put it back on. If they toss the finger is that murder? Or better yet every time you eat a fruit is that murder? They both are made up of cells;
And if you really want to get down to facts, Cancer does not "Do harm" its just the reproduces without stopping. So in actuality cancer is the best from of cellular division. so to our bodies that's "bad" but in the real world its good.

See now you're nit-picking.

I see how my first comment was not a good idea on my part and I can see where you're coming from. I just have to say that I stand on a middle ground here. Sure I see where abortion could be beneficial, but I can also see where it is wrong. I just wanted to put my opinion out there.

All that aside, What I cant understand is life itself. If you have any time research Split brain experiments.

Any more links you know of. I've heard of this but I never really found time to actually read about it.

So we shouldn't kill cancer cells?

Im not saying that. I never gave any opinion. But if I were to give an opinion, I would say that Abortion has its ups and its downs to most people. If a woman becomes pregnant due to her own or her partner's mistake, then I don't think an abortion would be the right way to go. But, lets say someone was raped and the fetus can't feel pain yet, I think that the mother should be the one to decide the fetus' fate. As for the cancer cells, I think it is morally right to kill them since they cause only harm. Anything that can only cause harm should not exist but not giving a human being a chance is wrong. Only under certain circumstances should abortion be the right way to go.

Here's my counter-opinion: that lump could one day of grown to develop the brain that cures Cancer or ends WW3...

I have no problem with aborting a baby concealed by; Rape, Incest.. But a woman aborting a baby due to her own ignorance/stupidity/whore-ness is just a big no no

Odds are your kid won't do anything special, but attribute to overpopulation.
In fact, there's a better chance they'll end up being an evil person who does harm to others, than there is that they'll end up saving the world, so like the guy below me said, it's illogical to use 'what-ifs' like that in an argument.

There are probably millions of sperm cells that never conceived a child, which would have otherwise created something incredible that would change the world.
You shouldn't just pump out babies, because there's a possibility that they'll do something incredible. If you're pregnant, but you don't want to have a child, then it's your own business as to whether or not you get an abortion. You shouldn't be forced to have a child simply because there's a possibility that they'll do something great.

You cannot battle an argument with "what ifs" what if the world ends, then what would be the point of anything. See how your logic works against you.

You could be the next Hitler, we should kill you just in case.
You can't use that as an argument like that.
