Abortion is not a religious issue, it’s a human rights issue. Science is clear on the question of when life begins – at the moment of fertilization. Period. It is also important to note that morality is not dependent on religious belief. A human being can be moral without following a deity. Morality is really just common sense. Simply treat others as you would want to be treated, or as my religious friends like to put it: ‘do unto others as you would have others do unto you’. Simply imagine that you are back in your mother’s womb. Would you want her to pay someone to poison or dismember you? Probably not.
Laminin is a glycoprotein that is a component of connective tissue basement membrane and promotes cellular adhesion. I assume you mention it because its molecular structure resembles a cross.
While this may hold some meaning for Christians, I can assure you it is not a sign of divinity. The above image is a model used by biologists. This is what this molecule actually looks like…
What is important to remember about laminin is that it holds our bodies together. But it’s not strong enough to hold them together against a vacuum aspirator.
One final note: there are many pro-life atheists. Please visit Secular Pro-Life to learn more. Together, we can reclaim our humanity and help others to reach the realization that all human beings should have equal access to the most basic human right of all – the Right to Life.
