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.

but shes attractive so its ok. also i give kylo some slack because he fucking got destroyed by chewie
#320 - theinvisibletheift (01/08/2016) [-]
I agree that Kylo was wounded and was likely not as effective as he could have been. However, he was also beating Rey despite being wounded. Up until she closed her eyes and heard the word force. Then she fucking destroyed him. Which should not have happened. I understand the desperate times thing, but honestly?

Other than that, the initial failure of the New Jedi Order through Kylo is something pretty believable. In the expanded universe, something similar almost happened on Yavin IV. The ghost of Exar Kun almost destroyed the NJO with Kyp Durron and the Sun Crusher. Anyway, expanded universe aside (may it rest in the force), seduced by a master, Kylo upholds the rule of two and has an interesting storyline. He actively rejects the light, seeking to be corrupted. This is an interesting plot point, because normally the dark seeks a jedi out. To have a goal of corruption makes him interesting because he is a departure from the norm. He recognizes the light inside him, and while he is angry and lost as most Dark Jedi are, he seeks to destroy the light. Not with the goal of making good fall, but to make himself pure.

Now on to Rey.

People use Luke as an example of a Gary Stu to counter Rey's Mary Sue. A few problems with that: Obi Wan taught Luke some rudimentary force techniques, such as sensing a target. Nothing crazy, but he could block a blaster bolt, and ultimately (with Ben's guidance) used the same technique to get the timing down for the targeting of his proton torpedoes and thus helped coin the term TRD (trench run disease). A very simple force enhanced timing technique was used. Nothing more. He was not a God who succeeded in everything he tried. Even with Yoda's instruction, he was hasty and fucked up by facing Vader at Bespin. Between Ep.V and Ep.VI , there are a few years in which he discovered a lot of hidden Jedi lore, including a few holocrons, that were able to further instruct him. The Jedi Temple on Coruscant was raided, but some of the librarians were able to smuggle them out. They held not only teachings, but entire simulations of the Jedi counsel. These simulations, while obviously not the real thing, held the personages of the masters of the counsel, among other Jedi Masters, and were able to instruct him in the ways of the force and he learned enough to lead a desperate battle against the Emperor that ended at Endor. Through his training, he had the strength of will to succeed.

A poor scavenger slave is somehow miraculously able to pilot a ship she thought was scrap through the wreckage of star destroyers to evade TIE's, even pulling a fucking mid air stall that let a disabled, locked, stationary gun blow it to shit. An amazing sequence, don't get me wrong (the fucking aerial sequences blew my goddamn mind), but completely fucking unbelievable. I understand her knowledge of mechanics from scavenging that let them not die from coolant poisoning, but come the fuck on. Pulling shit apart and flying shit are two very different things. She wasn't even a service tech who would move them around.

Finn, on the other hand, I thought was done somewhat well. He came from a developed remnant of the crumbled Empire that had turned into a second Empire calling itself the First Order. He was a stolen child who obviously didn't have a lasting brainwash. He was able to recognize wrong and fight it within himself, but lacked the strength to fight it in others. He found something worth protecting in Rey (yay friendship), and did what he could to protect his only friend, but until the assault on the Starkiller he was terrified of the death he saw inflicted on and had done to others and sought to run from it. When he realized that to fight death was to make death itself flee, he found a noble cause to fight for. Not the best character in the world, but it's believable.

But Rey? Fuck Rey.

That turned into a bit more of a rant than I expected.






Oh. And CPT. Phasma. That character had no goddamn point. At all.
