So I was walking to the local high school today and i passed a lady holding a 5x5 foot poster of a decapitated baby head covered in blood, displaying an expression of pain. She was anti-abortion. I didn't think she was viewing the idea from a full perspective. I told her so. Her only rebuttal to my statements was that "Killing is wrong.". I personally don't believe in morals, only things that make me feel guilty or not guilty. Aside from that, I asked her if she thought it was wrong to kill something without a consciousness (i.e. mold or a weed). She avoided the question and said that a fetus' heart starts beating within 2 weeks of its existance. I wasn't sure if the amount of time was right but I didn't care. I told her that a heart does not have consciousness. She then said that the fetus begins sending brain signals when the heart starts beating. I then told her that brain signals did not suggest consciousness, and that consciousness was being aware of ones thoughts. Then an evangelist lept to her aid and condescendingly prayed for my salvation. I told them that they were full of shit and left. But honestly, isnt the fetus still a part of the woman's body? Shouldn't it be her choice to keep or remove it? And no one else's place to say whether it should or shouldnt be kept? It would be like removing ones hand. I certainly wouldn't like to see my friends lose their hands, but its not my place to choose whether they decide to cut them off or not. Secondly, the lady was addressing a teen-age (high school) audience. (Which is funny because they can't vote and are easily manipulated.) Wouldn't having a child severely complicate a teenager's life? Why don't I see anyone holding giant posters with gruesome and disturbing pictures of dead homeless teenage mothers clutching their malnourished children? Oh, right. Because that would be rude and would offend many people. Not as much as a gigantic photo of a decapitated and bloodied babies head being held by metal clasps would, but still. People are f*cking nuts. Does anyone feel my pain?
