Richard Dawkins tweets on abortion: ‘any fetus is less human than an adult pig’

Mar 16, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: freerepublic.com

It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter. On Wednesday, Richard Dawkins, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, posted a provocative tweet about abortion: With respect to those meanings of "human" that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.

I think I know what Dawkins is trying to get at. Adult pigs are more "devleoped" than a human fetus which early on is just a few cells, no heart, no brain, just a lot of nothing. So does it realy make sense to feel more for the fetus?

But it perfectly describes your attitude towards fetal/unborn rights to life.
Since you do not know my attitude towards the rights or lack of same, due to the as yet unborn, you can hardly be the one to correctly categorize them.

Is that praise or an insult? With so many people saying that atheism is a religion I canít be sure.

You are so full of shyt. Describe how a mahogany tree is a parasite. Go ahead, fool. Yeah, didn't think so.

It lives off water and returns oxygen to its environment, cleaning the air.

Stupid parrot.

It's considered more of a cult...

...by some, especially when practiced "religiously" like Bob of QF and many other Topix atheists do,..."normal", everyday atheists/agnostics notwithstanding.

You really don't know? Trees, like all plants, feed off nutrients in the soil. Those nutrients come from dying/dead organisms.

lol You think they just need water. lol

Mahogany trees are the greatest filters of the air and water they use to grow. They "perspire" clean oxygen into the local atmosphere you fkg moron.

Well, since that's a red herring I shouldn't bother showing you the "duh" problem with it ....

... but why not. All plants "perspire" oxygen, it's the result of photosynthesis.

Now, back on topic, you said they only need water and air to survive, you were wrong.

You stated that all living things are parasites, I proved you wrong. Plants are not parasites. You can't parasitize an element.

Fk off, troll.

Where do the nutrients plants need to survive come from? Dead organisms, they are living on dead organisms, they are parasites.

It's not my problem that you do not understand what "inorganic" and "ionic" means.

So you finally admit that all your assertions are just your fantasies being projected. How ... honest.
