    Yes. Of course.

    Not only that, if the sperm and egg are from humans, the human life begins at conception.

    No one's anti-choice.

    Sane people are anti-infanticide.

    Weak. How many IQ points does an 8 week fetus have? I guarantee it's significantly less than 40.

    Reference?

    Relevance? - OH! You want to pretend people not meeting your unsourced definition of "personhood" aren't subject to the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees of legal protection.

    Rights don't exist.

    For example, a woman doesn't have the right to commit murder.

    Since a woman does not have the right to commit murder, she does not have the right to kill her unborn child.

    LOL - our own government commits murder in a variety of ways. . . so can I.

    As long as there are pregnancies there will be abortions - either done in a controled environment or done at home or in a hotel. . . crude or otherwise. You can end a pregnancy in a variety of ways, really.

    Are you saying that the difference between a person with rights, protected by law, and a creature that may be disposed of as an inconvenience is IQ level? Are you proposing the IQ level required to be a person should be set at 40?

    When and if they commit murder it's WRONG!! When someone else does something wrong, it is still wrong for you to do it, even if they got away with it. It is a more accurate measure of a person's character what they do when no one sees them than what they do out in the open.

    Fine. If someone wants to murder babies, they should do it in the most dangerous locations possible, and we should make it as difficult for them as possible.

    Hint: Killing babies is wrong.

    Oh - don't be so dramatic. Are you going to offer to adopt countless unwanted babies or something? Or are you going to lash out at those who don't wnat kids, demand they have them, only to hold a strong 'but i don't want kids, either' stance?
    Can't be judging others unless you're heart and home is open to the precious cells.

    I purposefully miscarried a few developing cells when I was 18 - and I don't consider that murder or wrong in any way, shape or form.

    Should I bid a fond teary farewell everytime I bleed? Stage a funeral and curse God for the punishment of my period and subsequent lost offspring seed?

    Hardly not - developing cells are not a 'baby' - and I won't get my panties in a twist over them in the least.
