Actually, yes, it is less human. It does not live independently, it does not think, it has no existence.
Are comatose patients less human? Are they non-existent? Until I started this blog, I actually believed that people had an enormous capacity for reasoning and empathy. I am astounded by the inability of many people to realize that we MUST be an embryo and that we MUST be a fetus in order to be who we are today. I don’t understand why we don’t protect our own children who are currently passing through those same stages of life, why we choose to kill them as if they were nothing of value at all.
When we were an embryo, we weren’t independent, we couldn’t think, yet we clearly existed because we are here now. You are claiming that you are superior to the millions of humans who are currently gestating and that your life is more valuable than theirs. Thinking like this has never failed to result in mass killing and oppression, which is exactly what abortion is.
