I often wondered why someone can be pro-abortion and advocate the killing of an innocent human being-
- in the absence of any scientific data or declaration of when "life" begins
- in the light of the many premature births of children who have developed normally and lead productive lives
and then fight tooth and nail against the capital destruction of a murderous pedophile -
- in the absence of any scientific data that suggests that rehabilitation can help this person and that society in general can be safeguarded against them
- in the light of the cases where these people have escaped into society to repeat their crimes upon other innocents.
The answer is one's assignment of arbitrary definitions:
To this person, the fetus is not human, but the pedophile is.
I guess it all comes down to your definition of "human"
