I think nobody here on the PC side misunderstands PL arguments or considerations. Your biggest argument regarding the embryo/fetus' "significance" has been met with the belief it is granted by the woman carrying it. One poster referred to that as the host. Another responded that the significance is flexible depending upon circumstance (like being stricken with German Measles). I stated I gave it no significance if it wasn't mine. The reality is no embryo/fetus impacts society as a whole. Only the newborn/child/adult has or can have a tangible impact on society as a whole.<quoted text>Well, my dislike for Chicky begins at her lack of integrity/honesty, so I take what she says with little consideration. But I do agree with you that both sides must understand the entirety of the abortion debate, and that both sides have legitimate and compelling arguments and considerations. My biggest argument the past few weeks have been at those on the PC side that demean the significance of the fetus, but I do agree and understand that the PL are as guilty when it comes to for getting the consequences it wants to impose on woman for their own selfish beliefs sometimes.
IOW, your claim the embryo/fetus' significance is inflexible might be something you need to rethink. Because, even in your opinion, if it's conceived through rape, its significance is less than that of one conceived consensually. And that's what another poster pointed out to you, even as you argued it.
