And who gives a FUCK if it’s a human life? A human zygote has as much intelligent and thought as a pig or cow zygote. And except for crazy PETA vegans, does anybody give a shit if pigs or cows die? Not really. Just because YOU think human life is some sacred bullshit doesn’t mean all people do. If I have a disgusting parasite in me that will eventually make me look fat and cause me to make some decisions I never wanna have to make, then I’d rather just kill that thing the fuck off. Why? Because it’s worthless. Just because YOU don’t think it’s worthless, does mean that I don’t. To me, it is worthless, and I don’t want that fucking shit in my uterus until I want it there. Until then, get your goddamn nose out of my fucking womb and don’t do fascist shit like try to regulate whether or not women can kill their hardly-human embryos. Something only has worth when its given worth. If a woman can’t even find worth in her own child, WHY THE FUCK do you think she should raise it? It’ll fucking die soon after being born anyway.
It’s like, we all fucking die in the end anyway. Who the fuck cares if we never even got a chance to live in the first place? You know why I don’t wanna die just yet? Cuz I have shit to live for, I have loved, I have established my own identity. That’s what makes me human. Can a fetus do that? Fuck no. As long as a woman doesn’t want that shit in her body, it should be terminated.
I think most conservatives should have been aborted, actually.
You’ve got a warped perception of what makes something human, then. It’s our rationality that provides the basis for our inherent (not to be confused with civil) rights to life, liberty and property. See, outside of the state of nature (see: Hobbes), man requires the use of his rationality to perpetuate his existence. Philosophically speaking, this is called “living rationally.” And to live rationally in society, man requires freedom of action, so that he may engage in the actions necessary to support his own life. And that’s where our right to life comes from, from which the others (liberty, property, pursuit of happiness) are derivative.
Now, a lot of people are confused into thinking that rights are guarantees to things. They’re not. They don’t create entitlements. What they do, is they create a duty of non-interference. Therefore, freedom of action, to put it crudely, basically means one thing: you don’t interfere with my rights, and I don’t interfere with yours. And this mutual respect for freedom of action is what allows us to get along and prosper in a rational society - as opposed to killing, robbing, and enslaving each other like we would in the (irrational) state of nature.
You might argue that the same should apply to an embryo/fetus/infant because they haven’t developed the ability to exercise rationality. On its face, this might seem like a legitimate argument - until you realize that it’s not the ability to exercise rationality that makes a thing human (god knows plenty of people on this world are frequently irrational), it’s merely the capacity for it. This is why you don’t suddenly cease to be human when you go unconscious. You might not be able to rationalize at that point, but as a human being, you necessarily have the capacity for it - and that guarantees you your right to not have me kill you or kidnap you or deprive you of your belongings, just because you were rendered unconscious.
Don’t confuse this with a “potentiality” argument either, because it’s not. I’m not saying that it shouldn’t be killed because it has the potential for human life - I’m saying that anything made up of human DNA has the capacity for rationality, and therefore the rights that are derived from it.
The reason the fetus has a right to life is because - unless you can prove without question that it’s not human life - it necessarily has rights derived from its capacity for rationality. From there, all I have to demonstrate is that its right to life trumps mom’s liberty interest, which, if you read the original post, you’ll see that I’ve already done and no one has refuted.
