"Human development begins after the union of male and female gametes or germ cells during a process known as fertilization (conception).
"Fertilization is a sequence of events that begins with the contact of a sperm (spermatozoon) with a secondary oocyte (ovum) and ends with the fusion of their pronuclei (the haploid nuclei of the sperm and ovum) and the mingling of their chromosomes to form

a new cell. This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being."

"This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being."

Does *not* equal human being. It's a cell. One cell. Not the whole.

Still does not equal a human being.

Since when does the beginning of anything equal the whole? Remember all those acorns I stepped on last weekend? According to your logic (as exampled above), a bunch of oak trees were aborted. That's your faulty logic. And you continue to display it as well as the length of deceit you're willing to believe.

That wasn't the basis of your response. When someone suggested that God is working through others about something you don't care for or approve of, you said it was a stupid argument. It certainly did seem like you want to pick and choose when god works through others and with whom.

Can't believe there are actually people here fighting for the right to kill their baby in the womb because they don't want them. Bet ya'll are on meds too. Wouldn't want to have any of you psycho's to mother my children. I wouldn't touch a baby killer with a ten foot pole. Bet you're all divorced or stuck in loveless relationships. No doubt that you arent living serene lives. Dirty,dark,foul consciences you must have in order to advocate killing a sweet tiny baby nestled in the womb just growing. Yuck!

Get a life and leave the innocent alone.

You`re wrong, and your arrogance can`t accept it. Being PL or PC is a personal interpretation of philosophical, political, and biological tropes.
Some PLMers don`t believe in abortion at all; some believe it`s acceptable in cases of rape or health issues. So who is the "true" PLMer?
<quoted text>
I'll tell you what a true PLMer is NOT. It is NOT someone who supports and agrees with RvW,i.e. someone who believes that abortion for ANY reason, prior to viability, should be a legal option for others, regardless of whether they agree with abortion or would never have one themselves. That is the essence of what pro choice means. Or do you dispute that ?
When you say you agree with RvW and then turn around and say pro life is a closer to your true beliefs than pro choice you are either being deliberately dishonest or you do not know what the terms or what RvW really means.

Either way....flawed poll.
Deal with it chief.

<quoted text>Because you are new here, I'll explain it to you.
There are 100% pro-choice people who are against Roe v Wade because it has some restrictions and 100% anti-choice people who against Roe v Wade because it permits many abortions. Because you can only deal in "Yes" or "No" answers, you can't fathom "Sometimes Yes, sometimes No".
Number one, I am not new here. I christened this place.

Number two, I agree that there are both pro choice and anti-choice who oppose RvW, for different reasons. That's not what we're talking about here at all.
We're talking about those who support/agree with RvW.

You cannot agree with RvW and then turn around and say that "anti-choice" most closely expresses your beliefs as opposed to pro choice.
Or do you disagree ?

Thanks for sharing your revelation.

What else can you find out for us with your tin foil hat? Enquiring minds want to know.

You may be clairvoyant, but in this case, you were wrong about what I was thinking, which was not fundie.

No, two different polls.

Who cares who you trust?

I'm expressing myself just fine. You're deflecting.

Mankind was created to procreate via pregnancy. It's a normal part of who we are as human beings.
Says the religionist idiot who thinks women should be content to remain nothing more than mindless baby factories "for God and church." Guess what, goofy, NO woman has to be a mother unless she WANTS to.

Don't like it that a woman can REJECT motherhood if she doesn't want the hardships and responsibilities it involves? Too bad, pal, it's not YOUR call to make.

Once her baby is created in her womb (at moment of conception) she is already a mother. Aborting her baby makes her the mother of a dead baby.

Your logic, like Ink's, stinks. A first time pregnancy does not a mother make. Expectant mom, soon to be mom, sure. But mom? Nope. You might as well claim a pile of unsanded boards is a beautiful, complete, dresser or bedframe.
