Life began billions of years ago, and has been in continuum ever since.

Embryogenesis begins at fertilization.

Pregnancy begins at implantation.

This debate is not about life. It's about rights.

In the US, a woman has full civil rights, and an embryo/fetus does not. Period.

Life begins at the moment of conception. I don't care what anyone says, God begins life at that moment, end of story.

Complete nonsense.

"Conception" is a useless term for this debate, as it can be defined as fertilization, OR implantion.

The sperm and the ovum, the Haploid stage of human reproduction, are already alive.

Science knows that life is a process, not an event. And that it "began" billions of years ago, and has been in continuum ever since.

Embryogenesis begins at fertilization. And pregnancy begins at implantation.

Who is claiming that the embryo/fetus is not alive?

This debate is about rights, not "life".

Bears repeating. God gives us our soul at conception. Anyone who chooses to believe otherwise, I don't really care.

And no one has to pay any attention to your mythology, which is not fact.

And do you really think you're fooling anyone into believing that you're "ignoring" me? LOL.

Sure you care, especially when people DON'T believe the religious nonsense you claim is "fact."

The thing is, you have the right to BELIEVE whatever stupidity you want. We have the same right to say your beliefs are stupid.

Thanks, Kaykay; you just supplied more proof that you, like the other anti-choice imbeciles, have NOTHING intelligent to say. Not that this is any real surprise.

The fact remains that the ONLY person who gets to decide what to do about a pregnancy is the WOMAN who is pregnant. Your "God" has nothing to do with it.

She is totally brainwashed and out of touch with reality. If she could she would make her secret religion law of the land.

<<Life begins at the moment of conception.>>

Proof?

<<I don't care what anyone says, God begins life at that moment, end of story. >>

Who cares? Even though it is true that life begins prior to conception (you need living sperm and living ova before a pregnancy can begin), so what? Your deity has naught to do with it.

In our country, you didn't get to be a person until you are born....end of story!

Awwww look who's here, booby! As I sit here in DC at lunch with family awaiting the March For Life, we are all reading some of the threads on here and having a great laugh at so many of you! There is great enthusiasm here, and we are meeting people in museums, restaurants, and everywhere we go who are here for the march. I'm engulfed in a sea of humanity who know the truth! My resolve has never been stronger! I realize just how many GOOD people there are in this country! Makes the proaborts here look tiny, pitiful and insignificant. Carry on with your sick, killing beliefs! We're having a great laugh at your expense! Tomorrow, we will speak in HUGE numbers! Screw Roe v Wade!!

It is about the 'right' to take a 'life'.
