Not quite. Its about as profound as my thoughts on this thread: Its rather inane.

your ego is out of control if you think your statement is comparable to Einstein's thinking or maybe just a comedian.
He/she is a comedian, look:

And neither a newly born baby can sustain life on its own. There's really no difference from the moment a baby is born to its gestational process. They both require the mother to sustain its own life.

What if I'm a female who doesn't like to be dominated? I do make strong healthy babies with uneventful pregnancies and labors...

Silence, she-creature! Your place is on the back shelf of the cave, quietly gnawing the pelts to make them soft (The un-gnawed hides do chaff me so), far enough away so your vile menstrual vapors will not spook the hoofed mammal spirits to whom me and Shaman Bob pray. Maybe I'll throw you an eyeball as a special treat or a rib with some gristle sticking to it but what part of hunter-gatherer didn't you understand?

Stay silent and hear the tales of stalking and bringing down the pro-choice beasts!

MmK...A full term BABY no longer needs to leech off of the mother. A BABY no longer needs a uterus to stay alive.... And no, they both do not "need" the mother to sustain life...One can be fed by a bottle by Tom, Dick or Harry...the EMBRYO needs to be attached to the mother's insides to live. Just a tiny difference NO?

"Pro-abortion"???? I don't know any pro-choice people who call themselves "pro-abortion". But there are plenty anti-choice people (yourself, for instance) who like to toss that term around.


Not "interested in facts or logic"???? You have it mixed up. It's the anti-choice people who aren't interested in "facts or logic". They are only interested in their own idealized vision that an embryo is a baby.

Absolutely and completely wrong. Many babies are removed from their mothers immediately after birth and raised from that point on by mechanical incubators, adoptive/surrogate mothers, wetnurses, or professional nursing staff being paid union scale. Prior to a gestational age of about 7 months, this would be nearly impossible.

Have you ever actually seen a baby up close?

What do you mean by close? 100 feet? 10 feet? 1 foot? 1 cm?

What a silly question.

Apparently, everything else I said in my post was right on, and this is the only rebuttal you have, and without this question (which was addressed to basketballakev) you would have had no disagreement with my point. Is that correct?

Clarifying the question, upon your request, "Have you ever seen a baby up close enough to see what they are capable of doing on their own, without the umbilical attachment to the warm fluid-filled support system?"
