    These two quotes sum up my views perfectly. Only some abortion threads in the end actually get to discussing the meat and potatoes of what we all believe. In reality, almost no one here would want the government to force a medical procedure on someone. The real core of the debate is whether a fetus is a living being or not, which makes this discussion really no different than any of the other abortion threads.

    Speaking for myself...I don't give a rats ass if it's a living being or not. So are tapeworms.

    so in some ways, this is a gift to us
    It will also fire up pro-life individuals who can see hope in bringing the injustice of elective abortions to an end.

    I don't think so. I think everyone knows it is living. I don't think I've ever seen anyone argue that. The argument is over whether the pregnant woman can kill it or not.

    The crux of the biscuit isn't "living", but "being".

    I understand, the person issue. Being isn't the right word, though. Entity, maybe, in the sense that it exists (but not independently).

    I don't see why it must be something other than what it is: cells that are dividing based on natural laws and are doing so without awareness or higher function.

    Higher functions don't come until enough cells form to develop the components necessary to begin building a being.
