We got into a wonderfully open minded discussion, and I enjoyed hearing how she felt about it, knowing she was listening to me mutually.
The thing that we seemed to catch on most was when it's "too late".
My stance is that a fetus is not sentient until it's brain is mature enough to think and feel. I personally belive in a soul, although I am not Christian, but I understand that many Americans do not, and constitutionally have the right to not belive in a soul. I was taking that point of debate.
My sister belives that the soul is present the moment conception happens, and thus even if the fetus can not feel pain or emotion or think, it's soul can and thus it's murder from the moment it exists.
How many of you feel either way, or another way? Why? I'd like to hear about it.
