    Disturbing, but interesting.

    Terrifying! And wow, it sure makes the point. Where’s the rest of it?

    The semantic games are just religion. Words are what we define them — potentiality occurs only under the right conditions, whatever those may be. Most eggs, will not be embryos unless… And most embryos are never fetuses.

    To claim there is a “true” definition of “human” is to claim it was created by a god, because without a god words are defined by humans. Species are defined by our logic of where to draw the line. There are many animals with more neurons than a human embryo — we make the call on which we think it important.

    If you eat meat you have caused far more suffering than a woman who has had an abortion. For me, that is the greater evil.

    Interesting point, LM!

    And remember, it’s just a mystery novel. ;)
