    • On January 27, 2011, by cmb020 - This is an amazing step toward clearly defining the rights of an unborn child. This would eliminate the ridiculous question of "when do we become human" and keep the focus on the ethical aspect of this issue.

    • On April 11, 2011, by jennyw410 - Why do people consider a baby (who is a separate human being) having no rights past the woman who is only carrying it? Who speaks up for babies after they are born? Their parents and society, because technically they cannot speak for their rights until they turn 18. Just because the baby hasn't been born, doesn't mean it loses all rights and is not a separate human being from the person carrying it. I do not see abortion as a "woman's rights" issue but as a child's rights issue and abortion takes all those rights away. This is a huge step towards bring the rights of those children back. A woman has every right to destroy her body, but the baby is not her body - it is (yet again) a separate human being.
