Question: Do you believe abortion of a lifeless clump of cells is murder? How about the morning after pill? –Your Father
Answer: Morning-after pills to me are just another level of contraception. They prevent the egg cell and sperm cells from fusing. These two cells have been given way more importance than necessary by religious organizations. The sperm cell possesses almost no sub-cellular structures and is nothing more than a motile conveyance of Genetic material (similar to a virus if one thinks about it). Contraception is not wrong and in fact allows humans to engage in one of the most pleasurable acts with safety.
Abortion to me is a little odd. I feel that if the fetus could reasonably survive outside of the mother, then perhaps there should be another option taken. Before that point, I would consider the fetus a part of the mother’s body as to remove it from the mother would result in almost immediate death of the tissue, much like what would happen if my arm were lopped of. Without the blood I provide it, it just dies, having no ability to get oxygen and food on its own.
