What part of the Constitution or any law requires a person to put their life at risk to support another?A sperm or an egg is not a unique human life; it does not have unique DNA. Once they are combined, a zygote is and does.
I'm for legislating for protection of the unborn because the unique life within the womb requires protection in very much the same respect as those who have fought for legislation that we cannot discard of an eagle egg.
From my perspective, your opposite viewpoint is legislation (or a freedom) that allows a person to end the life of another. I cannot see how it is acceptable for me to enact legislation that prevents humans from harvesting eagle eggs but not work to protect the life of an unborn child, which is much more significant because of the sacredness of human life. And I cannot understand how an eagle egg deserves protection but not a human "egg."
This isn't a discussion of faith vs. science. Your view of science requires faith as well, but it is placed in a different person than the Person of my faith.
And, what has stimulated all of this recent debate is that the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution does not speak on the matter of abortion as an inalienable right of Americans. The SCOTUS ruling does not prevent abortions; it does not limit any freedoms. It allows the states to decide on this issue, which makes complete sense because this decision should be determined by the legislative branch, those who are elected and have the opportunity to be held accountable by those they serve, not the judicial branch, which is not.
For the record, Clay, I appreciate that you can approach this conversation with maturity. That is rare these days, especially on this message board.
I asked Hoosier this but he won't answer - is there any law that forces a person to give a Kidney to another person/child/baby that needs one or will die?
The Jewish faith holds that human life begins at first breath. You are simply forcing your religious beliefs on others.
