There's another thread where there seems to be an irreconcilable difference between the two sides of the debate.


The big difference lies in whether a z/e/f is a fully invested person w/ all the rights of personhood.


In general, the PC side states that a fetus isn't a person w/ legal rights until it is born.

***Are you saying that this is the one definition of consciousness? And therefore life and personhood?***


I'm not too sure about the 'personhood' But yes, consciousness.

I dunno if that helps but it is the way I see it. If that's what you mean by personhood.


Well, see, that's the whole problem.

***If the abortion debate hangs on personhood, then it will never be resolved.***


Maybe it's all just a matter of opinion in the end.
