If there's something I know is real, is that Medicine is not an exact science. How? My wife is a physician.<quoted text>
I'm on the 'pro-choice' side of this issue. I'm replying to this, not because I want to argue with you on this, but to show that not everyone on the same side of an issue thinks or believes the same things.
I want people to know that I don't agree with this, and I don't believe most people in general believe that a baby is not real until it is outside of the womb. Sorry, but that is equally, if not more ridiculous than most so-called 'pro-life' arguments.
I honestly don't understand how anyone can think this way. A doctor doesn't tell you that your appendix isn't real until it's removed. There are plenty more sane and logical arguments.There would be no need for abortions if there was nothing real in the womb in the first place.
A doctor may not tell you your appendix is not real until it's removed, but a doctor can easily misdiagnose what is real and not find out for sure until he/she gets in.
Classic example; Alzheimers cannot be diagnosed, with certainty, until an autopsy is performed. All that a doctor can say is he/she suspects Alzheimers, given the symptoms.
And ultrasounds, no matter how "high-definition" they may be, are not 100% precise. Maybe my argument is a stretch, but I don't call anything "real" until I am 100% sure it is.
