viduage asked: So I go to a Catholic School, and there is a religion teacher there that I constantly argue about abortion with. His arguments are very repetitive; every time I say something pro-choice, he responds with someone like, "a fetus is a human because SCIENCE SAID SO". I'm afraid to google it to find out whether it's true or not because of the mixed results. This reeks of being false though, because he also told me that communism=satanism. But still, what are your thoughts on this pro-life argument?
Someone correct me if I’m wrong, yes, technically, a fetus is human.
It’s human DNA, that’s not the argument. The argument is when is it a “person”.
A fetus in the early stages of development is incapable of thought and can’t process external stimuli. It can’t think or feel.
There have been some studies done on when a fetus can feel pain, and the conclusion is at about 24 weeks, and even after that it’s still not in a conscious state.
