NEVER GO IN AGAINST A SICILIAN
I was 100% expecting an iocane powder reference that somehow involved this pic/joke. Thank you for posting this.
In Fallout New Vegas, if you keep breaking the bones of your limbs, they become stronger... somehow.
Thats how bones actually work. Breaks heal stronger than unbroken bone
I heard that too multiple times and thought it was true, but it actually isn't. Bones don't get stronger after a fracture, here's an article explaining why
Well there you go cheers
I learned in several high school and college biology classes that the bone actually does get stronger, but only because it gets thicker around the point of the break, kinda swells up, I don't think my professors would be wrong since I just heard it from one last year?
Trust your professors more than Ney York Times. They are the people with the knowledge and degrees.
Like so, this is also how forensic scientists can tell where and aproximately when a person or animal suffered a fracture based on autopsy
except teeth... which just wither away
Teeth arent actually bones
"YOU aren't actually a bone!"

how easy would it have been to make teeth able to repair themselves tho? like cmon

The argument is that abortion is murder. If that is really the case then its never ok. If its not murder, then its ok under any circumstance
Abortion at the point it is currently legal to perform is not murder because a fully functioning life with real brain activity hasn't actually formed yet. You aren't ending a sentient life, you're preventing one. It's no different than the morning after pill,from a moral standpoint.
I'm not arguing as to which position is correct, just framing the argument as it usually is. Those against abortion claim that aborition is equavlent to/is murder, those in favour claim that it is not.
I was pointing out the logical consequences of characterising it as murder
the moral standpoint is different for everyone but no one really thinks it is equal to the pill
My problem is that even on day 1 of a baby's life, they are incapable of taking care of themselves and have no complex thought.
But they have brain activity, and an awareness of their surroundings. They're a sentient being, just in an early stage of life.
But at that point you're still losing nothing on day 1.
And how is a fetus not a sentient being in an early stage of life? Just because it isn't sentient yet doesn't mean it isn't going to become one.
"You aren't ending a sentient life, you're preventing one." It's brain activity that's the real big line for me. I don't see an abortion pre-brain activity as murder, because you're not ending a mind that's already forming, you're just stopping one from existing in the first place. (Same as if you stopped someone from getting pregnant in the first place by wearing a condom, or taking birth control/morning after pills.) Once that mind starts forming though, you're no longer preventing life, you're ending it.
>because you're not ending a mind that's already forming
You are doing exactly that. To the letter. By aborting a fetus you are ending a mind that
forming. The process has begun and nothing can stop it short of intentional intervention or a medical problem. There is no functional difference between stopping a sentient life from forming and ending it after it has formed.
Millions of sperm die a day. Most women's eggs fall out of them without being used. These are processes that would happen no matter what, you can not possibly use all your eggs or all your sperm. Saying "using the condom is the same as abortion" is ridiculous, because for that to be true then not doing your absolute best to impregnate as many women as possible every day would be the same as abortion because you're wasting sperm/eggs.
The morning after pill is nearly the same as abortion, but it's a grey area, because there was no guarantee that a life was going to form.
