It doesn't matter. What matters is that they took the bait, and that is amazing.

So are tumours. Also the placenta, and a bunch of other stuff. A embryo really is just some cells- the distinct being thing is only really valid in a religious argument.

A tumor would be your own cells and your own DNA. An embryo is a distinct set of DNA that differs from a parasite in that the host creates it and it does not have a separate life cycle. The argument is a general moral one not specific to religion.

Here are a couple well stated arguments for and against that are not based in religion: harvardmagazine.com/2004/07/debating-the-moral-statu.html

there's still a forced pregnancy to consider- pregnancy and childbirth have both temporary and permanently life changing effects- physically and psychologically (vastly different from woman to woman, but always there)- it's not just a 9 month ordeal

From the point of view of the pro-life people, between that and killing a baby- it's a terrible choice between two evils, but ultimately the more moral thing is to not end the life

However, a foetus is not a baby. It has less awareness than a tadpole. Potential life isn't really a logical argument- every sperm and egg has the potential to be life, and the moment of conception is still just two cells with the same amount of life potential as they did 1 second before conception, or 1 hour before conception, or a day, etc.
It's sad when the young die- that's an evolutionary instinct that guides much of our morality since they're more useful to the survival of the species cause, but there's no reason for it to extend to a tadpole-equivalent foetus.

Unfortunately, adoption agencies come under just as much scrutiny as planned parenthood. To me personally, a small mass of cells with no current organ development is no more human than the cells in a fucking banana. Obviously it has the capability to develop and grow under sustained nourishment but that goes for anything.

If adoption agencies were better at regulating themselves in a way that would be best for these children then I'd feel more comfortable with them being born into the world.
#32 - theinvisibletheift (05/25/2016) [-]
I would agree that adoption agencies still have problems, but also say that a push should be made for protecting and aiding the children that enter the system. There are so many of them in it already that it's a horrible thing that there's so many problems.

As for fetal development, even before the brain (first organ to begin development) appears at 18 days into the pregnancy, the embryo will still have a unique set of human DNA. Regardless of function, it is a distinct being. Maybe only in the way a bacteria is, but we still consider that life. A life with human DNA is a human life, regardless of awareness. I think the argument is then about morality. Which is a massive ball of fuck that I don't feel qualified to argue about.
