We need to be careful, Mr. Adams, that part c) of the trade-offs you mentioned is not construed as a justification for rape. In the right minds, with only minimal sophistry, such could in fact occur. But this all sidesteps the real issue--the question of whether the 'cell mass' being forcefully removed from the autonomous woman's body is a human being. Some say that, sans viability, it is not. The more salient point, in my mind, is, rather, that the 'cell mass' cannot become anything OTHER than a human being.

There is no "become" involved.

If you think a newly-conceived human being is NOT actually human you have to provide clear, SCIENTIFIC proof that it makes a transition from a non-human state -- from which it might develop into a human or it might develop into some other organism -- to a human state at a precise, indisputable point in time.

I've been asking that same question for several years now.

Left-libs either ignore it or try to change the subject.

"the 'cell mass' cannot become anything OTHER than a human being"

We've been beating this question to death in the comments. Here I'd just like to focus on your word "become". If the woman removes the "cell mass" before it becomes a Human Being I don't think she does anything wrong.

Okay, then. Perhaps with that rationale, we can start executing psychopaths before they become murderers and rapists...

Do you believe that Psychopaths are not Human Beings?

Hey, it was you brought up the idea of interdiction. You posit that if the baby is aborted before it's born, its' not human--- the point being that you terminate something before it becomes an inconvenience. How about I rephrase my comment in the form of a question: Based upon your rationale, should we execute psychopaths before they can become murderers and/or rapists?
Most of my columns are meant to expose the hypocrisy of self-described liberals who have taken over our institutions of higher learning. However, on some occasions, I attempt to address misguided thinking among self-described conservatives. An example is my recent column “Romney and the Rapist,” which was described by many readers as either “weird” or “convoluted” or both. Those descriptions are indeed accurate and reflect the intention behind the controversial essay. It was my intention to write a column that would identify absurd arguments as a means of drawing out the flawed reasoning of those who would support Romney’s proposed rape...
