Wait, so YOUR embryos aren't "babies"? But the embryos of women who choose to terminate ARE "babies"? WHHHHATTTTT?
How awfully convenient that is for her!!!!
Shades of grey are pretty interesting.
You have decided that for YOU life begins at implantation.
Many disagree, there is a thread where it was said that anytime an egg is fertilized and killed by any means, it is murdering a baby.
Some people think life begins at the first heartbeat, the first brainwaves, the first breath assisted, the first unassisted breath, the first kick, the first trimester, the second trimester. It is entirely subjective.
For me, all z/e/f are potential life. Life isn't until outside the womb. But I believe that potential life begins immediately when that embryo has unique in all the world DNA to make them a person. So by my definition, we would disagree with what your embryo's are. And if I was pro-life, I could take issue with your choices as you take issue with other women's choices. But, alas, I am pro-choice.
I would never consider it my place to judge what happens to them or what you choose to do with them. Or you as a person for your choice.
So it has to *look* like a baby to *be* a baby?
If you make a claim, you need to be prepared to be asked to back it up.
She didn't make a claim.
I think it is safe to say that women who are in happy, healthy, long-term marriages are rarely going to abort their babies.>>
You know what *If* I were to conceive right now my DH would NOT be very happy. We are a very happy couple but we couldn't afford another child right now. I don't know if I could terminate but I do know he'd be perfectly fine with that decision. Doesn't mean he doesn't love the children he has just that he's very good at weighing things up and being rational.
"It is not up to you to determine what has a "place in this issue"."
So you DO get why another woman's abortion is none of your business!
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
