Personaly my view is human life begins when sperm hits egg. From that
moment on the potential is there for humanity. Extinguishing that
potential is a hard hard thing to do, or should be. OF course the
valuation on HumanLife varies from human to human, so it may be easier for
some and harder for others.
THe thing is, once the life is in progress, wether it be .02 seconds along
or 2 weeks or 2 months or 2 years or 2 decades or 2 centurys it is still
a life. How that life will unfold, what ripples of change it will cause ,
this is the Potential of that Life. The little critter could turn out to
be a mass murder a enlightened monk a toll booth attendent or a IT
executive..youll never know unless it lives the life and rides out the
Untill medical science can do otherwise the first 10 months of most human
life is totaly dependent on the host mother. There for the actins of the
host mother is part of the process of that potential being carried forawrd
or ending. The host mother is also a HUman being with potentials and life
all thier own. There will be cases when the valuation of the host mother
will outweigh the valuation of the little critter.
At the end of the day though the potential is either still alive or its
dead. We can name it all sorts of difernt things and drape it in
poltical/life style rhetoric, but the bottom line is life or death.
Killing is never, and should never be, a pleasnt experience. It happens
though and sometimes the outcome is not evil.
