    Sure, but it's an individual no longer within the realm of a woman's body and privacy.

    But the libertarian in my says it should be legal. It shouldn't be for government to make moral decisions for you.
    It doesn't have to be based on birth - it's not for me. . . it's based on multiple things but mainly: after it's established that the pregnancy is more than likely to continue naturally on it's own - in regard to 'when it's a person' arguements.

    A majority of embryos don't make it to the fetal development stage - due ot nothing but mother nature itself. So conception or implantation seems like a poor starting point to me.

    I do think it's interesting, though - that people will consider things based on heartbeat beginning (since heartbeat ending is the end of defined living, or so many people contend) - but no one consider breathing (which is what's really special about birth.) to be a starting point for 'personhood'

    Birth is the process of the infant becoming physically disconnected from the mother's womb - the first of many steps the infant will make on it's way to growing up into a complete individual. Hence the notable act of cutting the umbillical cord to sever this physical connection. Something which my husband did - so gross, I know - but to a lot of people it means something. It is the first change in environment the infant will ever realize - having developed in one environment there is a bombardment on the senses - gravity, air, touch, sight, smell, and soon it will begin the art of consumption to stay alive rather than living passively without effort as it had done for many months before.

    For me: it was when I considered my children to be children - they were reality at that point. Before birth: they were just sensations and difficulties (since all of my pregnancies were high-risk)

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    You're just being hostile. You make judgments against everyone that doesn't see the world through your rose colored glasses.

    When would this invasion come into a man's medical treatment. Of course this is degrading and an assault on a woman's privacy.

    So it's not really about "is the fetus life?" but about the location of the life.

    Are you a supporter of late-term abortions as well since the child is still "within the realm of the woman's body and privacy"?

    When it's medically feasible for a man to carry another human life inside of him.

    I was there for her and always will be. She is my daughter, I love her much. She understands my position on the subject of abortion and she has come around. Even if she did not I would still love her unconditionally.

    I do not see things through rose color glasses. I see things in black and white, right and wrong, good and evil. Im not judging anyone that I leave up to god.

    Yeah. I, personally, have never argued that a fetus isn't life.

    I don't "support them". I think they should be legal.
