People are often wrong. There are substantial numbers (millions and millions for you specific’s people) of abortions performed each year. Some say this is their body, and their right, others cry genocide. The drastic differences in opinion demand resolve. Abortion is not an issue where people can celebrate their differences and wave a rainbow flag. This is life and death. The answer must be firm, and clear.
Unborn babies are people. Many rebuttals are boiled with illogical, egotistic, selfism. A splash of emotionalism completes this muddled brew.
Let’s talk about one aspect of this concoction . The day your mom turns you into a human being. . .
Hey. Honey. Wake up. It’s time!
Yeah – it’s 3 am, my water broke – let’s go turn this glob of fetal tissue inside my uterus into a human being!
Yes dear, let’s make this happen. You’ve been an incubator too long. . .
Off to the hospital. Turns out, this lady actually has two globs of developing fetal tissue enclosed in her endometrium. No, she’s not going to have a baby. But, as the umbilical cord is cut, I suppose, the baby will have itself? Confusing, rather.
On the trip into the hospital, husband decides to question wife about that exact moment in which their glob mutates into a human being. . .
Dear, I have been thinking, when is that magical time the ball of tissue inside of you turns into a baby? It must be at some point during the birth. Right? I mean, we know it’s not before that. . .when it’s just a ball of meaningless cells. Is it when the head fully emerges? The foot? The leg? What if it’s a breech!? What if you need a c-section, like last time, is it when the doctor first sees the developing mass? Dear, another thing has been on my mind, what if the little clump has shoulder dystonia, and as it’s head emerges it can’t continue and then slips back in? Is the clump a human when it shows it’s head, and then not a human when it retracts back into the birth canal?
Also dear, there are two clumps in there, after the first clump is humanized, is the second clump still non-human? Could we terminate the second clump? Perhaps we should dear, after all, we are only ready for one. . .
I do apologize if that narrative offends you. It offends me. The point of this story is to highlight how obscure, and vague the pro-choice view on when life begins really is. Birth is not so clear a definition as they would like it to be. An unborn baby is not a glob, or a clump, or a mash of meaningless tissue. And contractions don’t grant life. An unborn baby is a precious thing.
Thank you for your time. Please let me know what you think, where I am wrong, and what could be added.
