Reason and faith tells us the substance (the thing in itself) of the little person, which moves, takes nourishment, and develops is humanity, and humanity exists at conception.
The argument that “only a person reaching a cognitive state with all recognizable features and existing outside the womb of the mother deserves protection” is satanic doublespeak.
Then there are politicians, judges, and religious leaders who promote irrationality. They sanctify rulings which uphold the right of humans to be utterly irrational -- even to the point of terminating little persons, who move, take nourishment, and develop as humans naturally do. Such rulings are meant to bind society to a collective state of irrationality. Irrationality has become easy to accept, easy to defend, and easy to implement thanks to technology, which profits from irrationality.
America has declined so fast since 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion. I shiver when I hear people mindlessly mutter, “Hope and Change.”
With 57 million people missing, America now is running across the border to find a surplus population to pay taxes to keep the various Ponzi schemes afloat, but the opposite takes place. So much for welcoming your tired and your poor. We want your money.
