    Life isn't inherently valuable

    And also life needs to be defined, which is hard to do and will almost always end up being arbitrary

    You're conflating human being and human again. They are not the same at all.
    Do no harm, but take no shit.

    One of these things is not like the other... (well, actually they are all the same)

    I would say a human being begins when it is an individual being. You know, kind of the definition of 'being'.

    By it I meant the fetus, btw.

    Grumash what defines a human being for you?

    Not a biological person but a real being with innate rights?

    It is its own individual. It is not the mother, and it is not the father. It is a completely new human.

    That is false. In terms of both language and law Murder is described as having to be 'unlawful'. Abortions are legal, thus it is not murder.

    The 'human being'/pre-human in question is only 'alive' due to it being a parasite within the woman's body. Thus, the woman's autonomy trumps the foetus' right to 'life'.

    This reminds me of a quote by former Prime Minister of Australia Gough Whitlam.

    "Mister Whitlam, what is your opinion of abortion?"

    "Well in your case, it should have been retrospective."

    It is a biological part of the mother, physically attached to her body via biological tissues.

    I should have clarified what I meant by it. It being the fetus. The fetus is not the mother.

    It is connected/inside of the mother, but it is not the mother.

    Why? You've never bothered clarifying any of the other statements you give.

    Your values are different than mine, do not state your values as everyone's values.

    It just boggles my mind that anyone would place the value of getting sex without worry over the value of a child (or for you nitpickers what can become a child).

    If you're analogy is so bad that it can be twisted with very little effort, you were better off just stating your point in place of an analogy.

    Still, I'm amused that you would complain about flawed points after your hilariously wrong reading of my words which generated the criminal fetus idea.

    It is both the mother and the father. It is not an individual. To be an individual, one must not be biologically/physically attached to another.

    Siamese twins, for example; one individual, two brains.

    Relinquish your mystical concepts of humanity.

    You mean like you were doing when you said foeti are human beings with intrinsic value? Hypocrite.

    Good for you. Why do you feel you should impose this on women that don't share your values?
