Calling it an embryo or fetus is just a way to dehumanize a baby and make it okay in women's minds to have an abortion. It allows them to say, "I'm aborting a fetus, not killing a baby." (And I know this from personal experience.) Finally, it's a woman's personal choice to have an abortion or not, but what about the baby? Doesn't it matter if that child wants to live? If the Democrats want to talk about human rights, why don't they start with the rights of unborn humans.

Well then, you better shut up because you're infringing on the rights of Captain James T. Kirk, who has not been born yet for another two hundred years.

What the hell are you going to do, stick your head inside the womb and ask it??
That kid's not going to be developed enough to know anything, much less what it wants. And it's certainly not going to be able to tell you.
>>"It allows them to say, "I'm aborting a fetus, not killing a baby." (And I know this from personal experience.)"
You know this from personal experience?? So I'm assuming you've aborted a baby at some point. Did YOU ask the kid's permission first??

Define human being. Then define person. Then define wish, thought, pain. Do it inside and for yourself then speak to me again.

Oh for crying out loud. The thing isn't even self aware until well after it's born.
Tell you what. From now on, whenever I meet a pregnant woman, I'll shove a piece of paper and a pen inside her, with instructions for the fetus to write a short essay on whether or not it wants to live and why. If I get a response worthy of a pass, I will refrain from dealing out a falcon punch.

"Unborn" humans have very minimal - if any - rights.
So just STFU already. Roe v. Wade was a long time ago. Get over it.

They fetus can't want to live, you idiot, because its brain isn't developed enough for it to have a sense of self. Also, fetuses have no rights because they're not human yet.

"Calling it an embryo or fetus is just a way to dehumanize a baby..."
- No, calling it an embryo or a fetus is, at a particular point of development, a fact.
