Here’s a test:
I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.
I’m going to drop one. You chose which.
If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.
Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.
Because you’re aware there’s a difference.
Now admit it
Definition: In false dichotomy, the arguer sets up the situation so it looks like there are only two choices. The arguer then eliminates one of the choices, so it seems that we are left with only one option: the one the arguer wanted us to pick in the first place. But often there are really many different options, not just two—and if we thought about them all, we might not be so quick to pick the one the arguer recommends.
In the pro-life stance, in what situation would we want to choose? We want both to live. I would rather question the morals of the person who has set up a situation in which we have to choose who lives. Why not both?
Second, you point out a fetus. A fetus is defined as the following:noun
- an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception.Your entire argument is basically flawed. Had you taken basic biology, perhaps you would have known better.The amount of notes this post has only scares me, that so many people are that ignorant to know better.
It is a lack of intelligence that requires one to see something in order to sense its reality that makes this a clear choice for so many. Your body is made up of tiny molecules impossible to see with the naked eye. Do you think it would be wise to destroy these molecules just because you cannot see them? They are just as important to your life as your heart is. A heart made up of these unseen molecules. An unborn child is just as human and just as valuable as you and I. Just because they are unseen does not mean they should be so easily destroyed. You were once unseen, and look at you now.
