I think this was done well. Its a sad thing. Its depressing how society can kill its most innocent members. They can't defend themselves. They cannot speak for themselves. We have to speak for them.. I've done research into this subject. If the baby (Yes its a baby; fetus means child in latin if I'm not mistaken, or 'small child' has a heartbeat, and it does at only the 5th week, its alive. Nonliving things don't have heart beats.. And by looking up this subject I learned that babies can feel pain...There is a video out there called The Silent Scream. It shows an unltrasound of a baby being aborted at 11 weeks. The abortionist, after seeing this ultrasound (i dont think he did an ultrasound before during an abortion) never did an abortion again. Its a baby in there. Here are two links where you can see the development of the baby inside, like when their hearts starts beating, when they suck their thumb (the baby in The Silent Scream sucked her thumb shortly before she was torn apart by the abortion instrument), ect. At the very least, just look at these sites. From what I saw they are very respectful, especially the second link. They tell the facts. research, research. You'll be surprised at what you find.
Sure. I simply mean that things that are not alive do not have heartbeats. There are some things that ARE alive and do not have heartbeats (like plants) but there is no such thing as a dead/nonliving thing having a heartbeat.
I would consider those people alive. They are not dead; if they were, they would decompose. I am aaware some believe that they are dead, but I do not. Now I am not a doctor, so I do not know everything on brain death and similar injuries. However its obvious that they ARE alive, but they have been severely damaged and pretty much are nolonger independent. Again, I'm not an expert in this field, so I'd have to look up information in order to know more. But bringing us back to unborn babies, they have measurable brain waves at 8 weeks! I find it amazing that these children have heartsbeats AND brain function...yet are not considered to be alive.
It is interesting to find out that they have a heartbeat at 5 weeks and brain waves at that show up on a sensor at 8. But currently, thats the extent of my knowledge, which is kinda sad on my part. I'll have to look into it more.
but just to let you know; i'm pro choice and for the idea of stem cell research, BUT, and its a big BUT, I haven't made any more opinions than just being pro choice and for stem cell research. so until my knowledge is suitable for going further than that, i can't say anything more, at least in depth.
