You cannot deny that a fetus is a separate life than its mother. It has its own set of DNA and genes. It might require the mother to survive, but it is indeed a separate life. Science backs that up. I personally don't believe that a zygote is a human life, but at some point the unborn is a human life worthy of the same rights as any other human being. That point should not be chosen arbitrarily as it is now. The least arbitrary point you can pick is conception.
Would you support an increase in social services to assist the increase of children who would be born in poverty?
