Princeton Prof: Fetuses are Like Plants

"In my view, fetuses that die before they're ever conscious really are a lot like plants: They're living things, but there's nothing about them that would make us think that they count morally in the way that people do."

So says Princeton philosophy professor Elizabeth Harman in an article by Thaddeus M. Baklinski.

But wait a minute. According to the Swiss, plants have rights and intrinsic worth and dignity.

Shouldn't the ungodly secular left at least give unborn humans the same presumptive rights as a dandelion?

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
