I confess my use of the word “struggle” is a bit sarcastic. Those who hate gays often say gays are “struggling with their sexuality” and atheists are “struggling with their faith.”
When people start with a ridiculous definition of when human life begins, there are bound to be ridiculous arguments. That is happening at the moment.
A sperm cell swiming around in a woman’s body is not a “life” according to anti abortion politicans because it has no potential to become a human being. Monty Python’s parody, “Every Sperm is Sacred”, made fun of one-cell humans.
It turns out when a sperm collides with the woman’s egg, this is not a potential human being either. A fertilitized egg has potential for birth only when it attaches to the uterus of the woman. This takes several days if it happens at all. Usually it does not happen.
We need to know exactly when that cell or two is a human being. Once a law is established as to when a human being is inside its mother, criminal law and law enforcement personel will be responsible for its safety. We cannot have women aborting these humans and claiming miscarriages. Law enforcement will have to sign off on all miscarriages of documented pregnancies.
Also, clear lines need to be drawn so we know which group must be called “murderers”. After that, let the parades, pictures of fertilitzed eggs verses those attached to the mother and murder of doctors begin anew.
