When are the following determined? sex of the baby - conception blood type - conception unique DNA - conception heart beat - 18 days brain waves - 42 days fingerprints - 84 days spontaneous movement (independent of mother) - 84 days look at the picture of the baby holding the finger of her father before being fully born - it's on MSN right now. Interestingly, many comments about how special and beautiful the moment and baby (which I agree with), but as soon as someone comments on the obvious contradiction (since the baby is not fully emerged from the birth canal, our nation considers the baby a non-person with no rights) many "don't likes" are registered. why?

Another question to ask is which of the moments you mention fully define a human being? Does having DNA, blood, and a heart make someone human in and of themselves? A lot of these are just parts, many of which can be transfered from person to person in organ transplants. And identical twins both have the same DNA, but they're considered two individuals. So the question remains. When does that fetus become a human? If it is human, it is murder. If not, then it isn't. That's the crux of the issue.

If conception does not count, why are men paternally held to that standard? If they aren't present at birth, what right does a woman have to his body (DNA)?
Women objectified their unborn children in their quest to not be objectified by men. The irony.

interesting thoughts and perspective - is this another means by which narcissism manifests itself?

This month marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and this is the cover of TIME Magazine:


With this photo, TIME pretty much just made a pro-life argument. Simply seeing what an abortion table looks like is enough to save a few unborn children. The photo above clearly shows abortion isn't a simple procedure, but rather a full blown medical surgery resulting in one less human heartbeat on earth.

As Steve Ertelt over at LifeNews points out, TIME makes a pro-abortion argument in the cover article...
