People who congratulate themselves on believing the cell or two formed at conception is an actual human being are naive about the consequences. They are on a train with no brakes.
Two Republicans running for Congress have made statements advocating no abortions in cases of rape. If you believe two cells are a human being, you will have a tough time arguing with them.
It goes like this. The two cells are a human beings just like the mother. The mother gets to live. Why not the two cells?
When one believes the two cells are a full fledged human being, the door is open to the misogynist, one who hates women.
The latest Congressional candidate said it is “God’s will” a fetus resulting from a rape be born. If this is true, it does not seem possible rape itself can be a serious crime.
When rape results in pregnancy, the rapist has caused a blessed event, planned for and approved by God. If the woman, and women in general, dress in ways that attract rapists, doesn’t he deserve a little slack?
In fundamentalist Christianity, the man is to be the primary decision maker in a relationship. My guess is the case will be made eventually the rapist father should not be in prison, but present to have a voice in raising his own child.
As I understand anti abortion reasoning, the two cells are important, men are important, women are not.
