I’m all for abortions, it regulates population and rectifies tragedies (rape). But I also think there’s plenty of women who are stupid enough to abuse this privilege. Also, sure an embryo is not a child yet so therefor the argument that it’s just as important as a person is flawed. However, let’s not pretend were not grossly messing with nature and destroying someone that could have been alive.

My point? Neither side is right. If we were intelligent enough, we wouldn’t need abortions to the same degree. But humanity is a POS and we need abortions to fix our mistakes and crimes.

This video is stupid, it dehumanizes pregnancy to try sound clever but it fails to point out that it shouldn’t be dehumanized, BOTH sides just have to admit a fetus isn’t as valuable as a 1 day infant, but it’s no reason to abuse the process of nature if it can be better avoided.

Probably the first "pro-choiceish" argument Ive heard that I can respect. I still disagree, as I believe that life has inherent value as soon as the egg is implanted, but you explained your point well and described why it's contrasting to point of views from either side. And we can all agree that video is stupid :) Have a good day

So is a fully formed baby ready to come out of the womb not as valuable as a 1 day infant?

Is a 1 day infant not as valuable as a 2 year toddler?

All these "value" arguments seem to do is try to justify ending the life of something based on its "value" vs a "fully developed human".

It's disgusting whatever way you want to look at it and doesn't hold up to scrutiny, it sounds more like a cop out to keep abortion legal as a birth control option when it was never supposed to be used for that.

I feel like she has a point with this analogy. However, Like U/ckestis said, this privilege is abused. Yes, the fetus isnt as valuable as an infant, but if you'd used a condom, this wouldn't be necessary.

You seem to have missed the point.

She is explaining the idiocy of thinking that a recently fertilised egg is the same as a formed fetus. This is a common argument religious people give as a reason against abortion. They claim it is a human the instant after conception.

You are either deliberately trying to change the meaning of this video because of your anti-abortion stance or you simply missed the point completely.

Yes I know exactly what sub this is? What is your point? Antifeminists do not have a set stance on abortion.

[–]SeizmicETC1 point2 points  (13 children) | Copy

So at what point is a human a human? Lol....

[–]VestigialHead0 points1 point  (12 children) | Copy

Yes it is about that old chestnut.

Some people are blinded by their religion and seem to think that a human is a human at conception. This video shows the absolute stupidity of that thinking. Without a lot of time inside the womb a fertilised egg or embryo is not even close to being a human.

[–]SeizmicETC0 points1 point  (11 children) | Copy

Sooo......when does a fertilised egg become "human" what magic biological age markers turn an opinion to fact?

There's plenty of people who aren't religious that believe life begins after conception, by the way.

All this video does is try to dehumanise the process of mating/pregnancy by comparing it to making pancakes, which undermines the whole point it was trying to make, ironically.

[–]VestigialHead0 points1 point  (10 children) | Copy

When it starts having thoughts and can recognise external stimulus such as sound and its mothers emotions. This does not happen until months and months after conception. No-one who understand biology thinks a fertilised egg is in any way a formed animal.
So anyone who is not religious and thinks a human begins at conception is ignoring real science.

Food is not a valid comparison to a living life form this is so dumb.

[–]LaceFlowers3450 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Lol I think its super cute lol

[–]Anatol_Felsen0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

As someone who thinks abortion is ok, this analogy is hilariously bad

[–]Gordop0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm okay with abortion. People who place such a low value on the potential inside them probably shouldn't be contributing to the gene pool or parenting in any way, shape or form.
