You're lying again. A DNA test result would only show the sample has human DNA.

Dear John-KKK, what you fail to grasp is your statement is nothing but conjecture based on assumptions - not fact.
"...he knew perfectly well that her oxygen deprivation was transferred to her unborn "z-e-f." The result of which being a "child" unable to live without artificial assistance."
You do not know that this father's baby would've lived with artificial assistance. She very well could've lived a very independent, fruitful & worthwhile life....without ANY disabilities. But since your proabort 'hero' KILLED his baby girl, we won't know.

I wouldn't call my husbands sperm(seed) "my baby" until or unless fertilized. Otherwise it is seed.

It's generally accepted common knowledge from Guttmacher and the CDC stats supplied here over the years that the majority of induced abortion occurs during the first trimester with a high percentage occurring between 7-8wks gestation. She gave you a name, I forget which one, but here's a Guttmacher link from Dec 2013 with a nice pie chart halfway down the page.

The pie chart claims 61.8% of all abortions occur at less than 9wks.

This doesn't change my concern or curiosity that just because Ink knows this particular stat, she is still for seeing abortion criminalized. To me, it makes more sense to terminate an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy as early as possible even while realizing there's a small percentage of LTAs that aren't found to be unhealthy until later on in wanted pregnancy.

She doesn't care about any of that...for her, those are just pesky little diversions from the only point she ever makes: women who have sex and get pregnant, should gestate until miscarriage, delivery, or death. God's choice. Not up to individuals.

(That's what she says, over and over, and over and over, and over......again.)

You're right, she doesn't and that is her consistent message. Unfortunately, she's not too different from those I was reading the past couple days referencing that man in Texas who was finally allowed to discontinue his pregnant wife's life support. All God this and God that without acknowledging God determined both woman and fetus would die on the kitchen floor if it weren't for MAN hooking her up to machines. On top of that, the majority of those people kept insisting fetus wasn't a fetus at all (forget never being born or breathing on her own), but a baby and what was wrong with people they couldn't/wouldn't admit this? It was mind-boggling!! And very much like Ink here.

I suppose these same people should accept diseases and illnesses as well? They are Gods "will" and therefore no treatment or attempt should be made therefore? Is that what you are saying here? FWIW,nobody knows why she collapsed. It could have been from neglect of her health prior or during pregnancy. Perhaps deliberate or not. Stress perhaps? Her family could have been stressful to her or her job. It took ots toll? IOW,you're projecting. ALL attempts by anyone standardsor personal beliefs,should have been made to save their lives. BOTH parties. Do us a favor and don't enter the medical profession because you don't have it in you to save,fight for life.

And I'm saying take those cell samples (skin tag from mom & cells from her in utero child) to a DNA testing lab and let me know what the results say.

I know one thing they won't say: Preborn baby is part of mom's body.

Why?

B/c the results will indicate that her preborn baby is a unique, distinct human being.

"A Defense of Abortion" by Judith Jarvis uses "The Famous Violinist Problem" to argue that abortion ought to be morally justified when a pregnancy arises out of sexual assault. Two serious problems exist with her analogy...
_________

http://www.coloradocatholicherald.com/Article... By Tad Pacholcyzk, PhD

In her still-widely-read 1971 article,“A Defense of Abortion,” Judith Jarvis Thomson sets up a thought experiment known as “The Famous Violinist Problem” to argue that abortion ought to be morally justified when a pregnancy arises out of sexual assault:

“You wake up in the morning and find yourself back to back in bed with a ... famous unconscious violinist. He has been found to have a fatal kidney ailment, and the Society of Music Lovers has canvassed all the available medical records and found that you alone have the right blood type to help. They have therefore kidnapped you, and last night the violinist’s circulatory system was plugged into yours, so that your kidneys can be used to extract poisons from his blood as well as your own.... To unplug you would be to kill him. But never mind, it’s only for nine months. By then he will have recovered from his ailment, and can safely be unplugged from you.”

Most people would share the intuition that they should be able to unplug themselves from the violinist, since they didn’t consent to being hooked up in the first place. Others would suggest an analogy with becoming pregnant from rape, so the mother could “unplug” herself from the child by abortion.

At least two serious problems, however, exist with this analogy.

First, the famous violinist is not a good parallel for the child conceived by sexual assault. The violinist in Thomson’s thought experiment is basically a stranger to us. But the child conceived in rape is not, properly speaking, a stranger at all, and the analogy should probably be corrected to indicate this:“When the woman wakes up, she finds herself connected to a prodigy violinist who also happens to be her 12-year-old son.” In such a scenario, she would far more easily admit an obligation to remain attached to him, even for an extended period of time. Following a rape that results in pregnancy, a woman likewise finds herself connected to her own progeny, her own child in utero, with similar natural moral obligations to nurture and care for her own flesh and blood.
