If I were making an apple pie and had all the ingredients on a counter and someone asked me, “What is that?” would I be correct if I replied, “Nothing?” If I were ready to put the pie in the oven and someone asked me, “What is that?” would I be correct if I replied, “Nothing?” What if I were asked, “What’s in the oven?” and again replied, “Nothing?” My point is this: do the ingredients become apple pie only after they are removed from the oven or are they apple pie from the very beginning?
What about human life? Does the worthless blob suddenly become a priceless human being only after it is outside its mother’s womb? Ask this question: why would any expectant mother get an ultrasound if she didn’t believe there was human life inside her womb?
Is there a stage in the development of a baby that can be eliminated — such as the embryonic stage, etc. — and the baby’s birth can still become a reality? Going backwards in life, at what stage in life does a human being become non-human?
Everyone has existed in his or her mother’s womb as a human being, never a moment as a mere worthless blob.
Surely all pregnant women realize that they are pregnant with child, not with blob. An expectant mother would certainly not experience trauma having lost her blob.
Is abortion merely the killing of a blob or is it the premeditated killing of a defenseless, innocent baby?
