We do. But we disagree on it.

I believe the prerequisites to being a human life are that one must be human and alive.

Others would disagree with me, saying they don't feel it's a human life until it is viable or independent. I believe this is adding to the prerequisites. We disagree, but at least in the GOP, we're actually ALLOWED to disagree and discuss.
