A male or female embryo/fetus probably equals a newborn son or daughter in your immature eyes. Tried to help you learn to differentiate. But it went no where. Educate yourself or remain stuck on stupid. Either way works. In the meantime, just keep scrolling.

Pffft.....you said a newborn remains a fetus for 48 hours after born.

You said calling a preborn baby "a useless was of cells" isn't offensive to anyone.

Drew Barrymore called her daughter Olive when 3 months pregnant. If you read my post, you saw that Drew didn't say she named her "fetus," but her baby girl.

I don't consider her "immature" naming her daughter while in the womb. Her daughter was her daughter then...and now.

I don't think you are immature. I just think you are hateful, evil, self-absorbed and ignorant.

Isn't it about time Americans got over Roe v Wade ?
If a woman finds herself pregnant with a child she doesn't want, then it is her decision and hers alone,
whether or not to seek an abortion. All you bleeding hearts and right to life wankers out there need to get yourselves recalibrated.

Who cares what term of endearment Drew Barrymore used for her fetus? She could call it a banana for all I care. It's got nothing to do with this debate. Your desperation is truly pathetic.

I'd bet they had a name for a boy picked out too. Most people don't know the gender at 10 weeks, despite the marketing ploy of your favorite website, Uterine Envy.

Picking out names means nothing. It's a potential name for a potential infant, who is not guaranteed to become an infant in reality anyway.

I had a girl's name picked out when I was sixteen, five years before I was even pregnant. First name at any rate. The child was four days old before we could agree on a middle name.

And NONE of this proves it's a "human being".

You do promote abortion and try to justify it on this thread.
It is clear that you support abortion for any reason and at any time of fetus development.
Where have I promoted abortion?

Have you ever seen me post the address of an abortion clinic?
Have I ever recommended a particular physician for the procedure?
Do I ever suggest that anyone participate in an abortion?

No, no, and let's see.....no.

It is clear I support a woman's choice to do whatever she feels necessary with her own pregnancies. Gestation, raising, relinquishment or abortion.

It's also clear you're not okay with that, and have to claim I promote abortion above all the other choices. I don't JUST support abortion...but you'd prefer to ignore that fact and label me a proabort.(Which is fine with me. You don't mind that I label you a fetus worshiper, do you? Good... glad we settled that one.)

It's also clear that you believe abortion requires a justification on the woman's part.

I don't.

Try again?

Just because the mother doesn't want it, that doesn't mean nobody does. There are thousands of couples wanting to adopt a baby and they are all being aborted. They are going to other countries to adopt children.

The acorn vs. oak analogy used in defense of the "perform or die" pro-choice view of acquired humanity obscures the truth. Why do pro-aborts compare a plant to a human being? A more fitting analogy would be to compare one mammal to another, like a human to a cat or a horse or a dog. Why not compare mammal to mammal? Because such a comparison -- in which the unborn progeny of these other mammals are developing, growing, and living members of the same species as their parents, just as are unborn humans of their parents -- obviously points out the illogic of the pro-abort position.
And, consistent with pro-aborts' view of the value of human beings, "Oak trees and acorns are not equally valuable," write Robert George and Patrick Lee, "because the basis for their value is not WHAT they are but precisely those accidental [not substantive] characteristics by which oak trees differ from acorns. We value the ugly, decaying oak tree less than the magnificent, still flourishing one; and we value the mature, magnificent oak more than the small, still growing one. But we would never say the same about human beings."
Only artifacts (clocks, cars, cell phones) come into existence part by part. Living beings come into existence all at once. Because one can only develop certain functions by nature (a result of basic, intrinsic capacities) because of the sort of being one *is*, a human being at every stage of her development is never a potential person; she is *always* a person with potential, even if that potential is never actualized due to premature death or the result of the presence or deformity of a physical state necessary to actualize that potential.
Human beings are valuable and worth protecting at all stages of their lives because of who they are, not because of what they can or cannot do.
Here's your apt comparison, honey:

"Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague."

According to Adopt America there are 130,000 children in the U.S. foster care system waiting to be adopted. But, they are shit out of luck, because the "in" thing right now is for rich white couples to adopt non-white babies.
In the mean time we just keep adding to that 130,000 every day.
I still say it is more humane to abort an UNWANTED pregnancy in the first month than to dump it, like a stray pup, on an overcrowded child welfare system.
Now you've done it: you compared Ink's deity to a dog.

What is it about analogies that you PLM zombies can`t understand? Analogies are not direct comparisons.

Scientifically speaking, an entity becomes a member of a species only after birth. BTW--some mammals can abort by choice; why should humans be constrained by genetics?

No, you are misquoting me and taking words out of context. Again. Seems to be all you're good at, NR. I said it takes the newborn brain up to 48hrs or longer to awaken out of its anesthetic sleep, to become completely aware. It's a medical fact any quick google or bing search will confirm. Guess that means you choose staying stuck on stupid. Figures.

Like Bitner said earlier, when all you have are lies, you've already lost the argument.

You were discussing the "process of a fetus becoming a baby" and said it lasts 48 hours AFTER birth.
