It is always sad to listen to people claim that unborn children are somehow undeserving of human rights simply because of some physical characteristic (i.e. the umbilical cord remains attached). Scientifically, the evidence clearly indicates the mother and child are completely separate human beings. Remember, past historical atrocities have been based upon claimed physical laws (i.e. blacks are not as civilized or as evolved, therefore it's okay to prohibit them from flying fighters in WWII or are allowed to be enslaved prior to the Civil War). You would think that such an advanced and civilized society as ours would recognize just how violent abortion is to both the mother and child, and therefore abhor all forms of it.
