Something that merely functions by eating other living things does not depend on one specific thing.

A fetus is a potential human being, but does not yet have the qualities of one. Because it doesn't have the qualities of a living human being, I think it shouldn't be labled/classified as a living human being. Or given the rights of a human being (like buddy mentioned).

Characteristics of life: 1) growth 2) potential for reproduction 3) response to environment 4) taking in energy 5) utilization of energy That's according to most of the biology textbooks I have taught out of.

to be a living human being is to have more than physical characterstics. intelligence... emotions... but there is no absolute list of qualities of what is essential to be a living human being... and we already know there is no absolute answer to the debate of when we are truly living. **click me (conversation on life)**

Prematurely abating those characteristics (like intelligence and emotions) does not make a fetus non-human.

well pishma... should a human body with the absence of a human mind... be called a living human being? and of course the essential qualities/characteristics of life are subjective... there is no absolute answer...

Can a human being determine that another human is without human mind or human soul just by examining the human body? The human body is a subjective entity whereas the mind a soul transcend our limited scope of reality.

well... there's only one way to answer our questions... Jeeves at Ask.com but anyways, we won't get anywhere asking questions when there is no true answer to. we could talk about philosophy of the mind and morning wood. but.. maybe later. you're cool phishma.

well, after midway thru the 2nd trimester, they have a brain and lungs and a beating heart, im not sure what else you need to be a child....

Another end run by the Republican Party and their ultraconservative, misogynistic supporters to supplant the rights of women. The "anti-abortion" plans of attack that have failed so far... 1. Ban all abortion (totally destroyed time and again) 2. Just ban "partial-birth" abortion (their ruse was mostly stopped, but there are new developments in Ohio. 3. Rename scientifically defined stages of development prior to birth as an "unborn child"... this one might just work.

None of this has anything to do with misogony j.

In that tiny ball of cells there is the potential for a human. This person will have dreams, will give love and receive love, will laugh, cry, play, will have opportunities to grow, will go to school, learn, socialize, date, and change other lives. And you are saying you have the right to take that all away? Are you God? How DARE you.

If God in his wisdom has allowed the fetus to be conceived, who are we to then take full rights to destroy it? How can you place yourself above another human life? How selfish and arrogant.

If God in His wisdom has allowed someone to be born with a defective heart, who are we to change that?
