If you listen to, or read, the arguments for abortion (and an exemplary one from Judith Jarvis Thompson can be found here), you quickly find that the unborn baby (fetus, conceptus, fertilized human egg, or what have you) must be ignored if the argument is to have any hope of success.

How ironic that science, which pro-choice/pro-abortion advocates tout in their “arguments,” so severely undermines their case that it is shown for the cruel hoax that it is.
