Republicans keep referring to fertilized eggs as an "unborn child". Their language suggests that there is no difference between a fertilized egg and a two year old child. Indeed, the 2012 republican party platform declares:
"the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed."It takes 9 months to make a human being with many stages, egg, zygote, embryo, fetus etc. It's America and people are free to believe what they want, but republicans are legislating their mistaken beliefs into law.
HR 212, "The Sanctity of Human Life Act":
(B) the life of each human being begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, irrespective of sex, health, function or disability, defect, stage of biological development, or condition of dependency, at which time every human being shall have all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood; and
(1) FERTILIZATION- The term `fertilization' means the process of a human spermatozoan penetrating the cell membrane of a human oocyte to create a human zygote, a one-celled human embryo, which is a new unique human being.
There is no scientific evidence to support republican claims that a human being is created the instant an egg is fertilized. Not that it would make any difference to evolution and climate change denying conservative republicans.
This isn't a human child
|An egg isn't a chicken.|
|A dozen eggs isn't a flock of chickens|
|An Almond isn't a tree|
|This isn't a forest|
If you can't see the forest for the almonds, congratulations, you are not a republican.
