Re: “Personhood deadline approaches

Are you seriously suggesting that we should ignore the bloody massacre of millions of kids, and take care of someone else's kids instead?


It is ludicrous to think that women would be punished for miscarriages - I'm assuming that's what you meant by saying that "tissue grows but does not form correctly"? You do know, of course, that science has caught us up now, and we know that preborn babies are not "tissue" but unique individuals.

Before Roe v. Wade, women were not punished or investigated for miscarriages. Nor were they forced to carry ectopic pregnancies. There is no reason to fear-monger and say that that will be the case once abortion is illegal again. In fact, it's just stupid to think that.

You seem hung up on imaginary frivolous lawsuits (who will be filing, by the way? What you're saying doesn't make any sense), yet you seem to disregard the fact that these are people. People have a right to live, regardless of the 'consequences' - real or imagined.

One more word on the ectopic pregnancy issue...Lorena, pretend you are a police officer, and you see a vehicle on fire on the side of the road. You stop to help, and see that there is a woman in the driver's seat, and a baby strapped into the back. Should you rescue the mom, and pull out a gun and shoot the baby? Of course not! TRY TO SAVE THEM BOTH. If you can't save the baby's life, it's tragic. If you purposely kill the baby, it is murder.

Re: “Personhood deadline approaches

Ridiculous. There's no such thing in embryology textbooks as a "fertilized egg", because at fertilization, a new individual is created with his or her own DNA. So the fertilized egg thing is completely false.

Secondly, the "bizarre consequences" are false, as well. A woman with an ectopic pregnancy could still have the baby removed. Clearly, if the mom dies, the baby would die also, so it's illogical to assume that the mother would be forced to carry an ectopic pregnancy until it kills her. However, instead of dismembering the baby, the doctor can remove the baby and try to save them both.
