I'm pro-choice, keep aborting all you want. The right kinds of people are getting abortions. Don't tell me its a bundle of tissues. Again, I'm pro-choice.
Both sides make gross generalizations. Like the one you just made.
I'm a biologist and I don't believe that life begins at conception.
There is no brain activity until 40ish days after conception. So I defer to the philosophy:
"I think, therefore I am."
Life starts when you think your first thought IMO.
The really amusing thing here is: Making abortion illegal is like creating a gun free zone. If somebody wants to do it, it's going to happen. Protestant women in early America used to dump illegitimate newborns in the trash piles and toilet holes to avoid judgment from the community. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10297561
