you have to accept the concept that for many you will never convince them otherwise. when it comes to a fetus the scientific fact is that a human fetus is a human period. its not a blob of cells with no species associated with it … it has one arc of development and that is to either grow to full maturity and be born or for the process to be interrupted and death is the result.
ask any family who was hoping for delivery that had the fetus die at any stage and you will see the grief that loss has caused those aspiring parents. they do not mourn a blob, they mourn the loss of a child and all the what ifs that went with their dreams.
ask any one who is for abortion what they think and they will say its up to the mother to decide whether or not that fetus deserves to live or die because it is her body. they will not accept any argument that is contrary to this belief in personal choice and freedom.
even “secular” law contradicts itself … the only time a fetus has value is when the mother wants to keep it. but the moment she chooses not to before a certain term … then the fetus has no value.
in our society the least valued lives are those who cannot defend themselves … and that is unborn children and children who are too young to defend themselves. so few rights are afforded children that it is really a stain on our entire species.
