What have you got against homosexuals?
poor brian,he forgets that he posts against gay marriage,it must be sad to be a homophobic hillbilly....or then again it may be an act....
Many gays defend marriage as one man and one woman. There's nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality. Gay rights are human rights, to live with respect and dignity, not to rewrite marriage law for sex segregation.

<quoted text> What does the exact moment of conception mean to what you are talking about? Nobody can tell the exact moment. Perhaps in the future,we can. There are women who find out right away that they are pregnant thanks to technology today depicting signs of early pregnancy where as years ago,we didn't have that luxury. Didn't change ANY facts about the conception and existence of that child. In fact,many women give birth without even knowing that they were pregnant OR in many cases until late in pregnancy due to irregular periods. So?
""""" """"" """"" """"IOW, if life begins at conception; can anyone tell the z/e/f's birth date??"""" """"" "
Oh my goodness. Are you freakin serious? Another proabort who doesn't understand what a BIRTHDAY is. It is the day that you are birthed. Conception is irrelevent.
*sigh* speaking of mind-boggling.
Are you changing your tune again, dweebiekins? Aren't you one of the many anti-choicers whose favorite argument against abortion and birth control is that "life begins at conception?"

then as the old saying goes"don't have one" see how easy that is?
It's not easy at all. In fact it would be the ultimate in selfish, self absorbed arrogance to believe that it would be acceptable to simply not have an abortion yourself while human lives around you are still subject to legal termination.
During the period of slavery it would have been selfish louts like you who would have said " Slavery is wrong? Well then don't own one. See how easy that is ?"

An ectopic pregnancy is specific term; it is not related to a uterine pregnancy. The latter begins with implantation.

For most of our species's history, life was considered to begin at the first breath; many people still believe that. The medical definition changed because the facts became clearly documented; that's how science works. BTW--science doesn't even address the idea of when life begins, because that's a philosophical question, akin to "when do we truly become human"?) For many people, we start becoming human when the brain develops, and that doesn't proceed until well into the 6th month.

Without fertilization there is no implantation. Fertilization in man only occurs when male and female gametes fuse, making it the first process resulting into birth. It is already alive before it is implanted. This has nothing to do with religion,nor pregnancy. It has to do with the beginning of a human life,as we know it. An ectopic pregnancy grows outside the uterus,it doesn't implant,is that a pregnancy?
Before the 70's conception was always considered when life begins. Now,"conception" no longer mean"fertilization.” It was redefined to mean implantation of a blastocyst on the uterine wall, typically occurring 1-2 weeks after fertilization. Now you tell me why was it changed,was it a scientific break through? There was no scientific evidence to validate the change,that I know of. Me thinks it was political.

What's arrogant is deciding that pregnant women lose all rights to their own bodies because they happen to get pregnant.

It must be frigging sad to be illiterate.

YOU can define your pregnancy as you choose, but no one else's.

Thanks to IVF and sperm donation, two people no longer need to unite.

Ectopic pregnancies are the result of damage or malformation of the fallopian tubes. The only contraceptive even tangentially involved with EP's are IUD's, due to their physical function.

Jesus is a myth.

Yep,Biology is biology. Ethics is ethics. And politics is politics. Each is its separate issue.
The Defining “human” is easy based on the organism cellular genetic makeup. The argument can be made that at the moment of conception, the process is in place for the actualization of a human life. This is biology. An ectopic pregnancy,is still a pregnancy,outside the uterus. It grows,that's why it's so dangerous. I'm not arguing if abortion is right or wrong(ethics),or a women has a right to an abortion(politics).I'm arguing the process of pregnancy.
Always a pleasure to talk to you C.P.,have a good day.

Completely agree.

It's also immensely arrogant to decree that pregnancy and childbirth are CONSEQUENCES of sex, rather than circumstances rendered possible by sex. Only women become pregnant as a result of having sex - therefore, since it isn't a 'consequence' for men, it isn't one for women, either. It's a random act of happenstance, rendered possible by a specific sex act, not some holy form of divine punishment, as the SCPL would like to claim.

Conclusion: Gestation is a personal decision, not an obligation.
<quoted text>
Non sense, it's illegal to abandon your children after they reach a certain age you are forced to care for them. You also need to go back and take biology. You said biologically speaking someone doesn't become a member of a species until born. Member of a species is not a biological classification. It goes King(kingdom) Phillip's(phylum) class(class) of(order) fifty(family) good(genus) soldiers(species). There is no "member" classification in biology. Stop lying to try and make your argument sound smart. You are a liar and ignorant of what people learn in 8th grade biology. You have no right to lecture people about climate change or evolution until you stop lying about what you learn about in 8th grade.

Non-sense. I also think stealing is wrong. With your logic I would also have to agree that it should be legal to steal.

Talk to me about "collateral damage" some more, while the same socially conservative Congress-critters who impose draconian restrictions on women's reproductive health options, also repeatedly slash the Federal Budget for every social program out there, INCLUDING those for veterans.

Fucking Hypocrite. Thank GAWD your type of "sense" isn't as common as you'd like to think it is.

Even if we accept your idea, nobody is required to be selfless, and everyone has a right to act in accordance with their own interest. And it's still arrogant to presume women should all act selflessly by your definition.
