Colorado rejects fetal "personhood".


At least some degree of sanity still exists south of 49.

Whether or not it will stand up to the ongoing incredibly valid and intellectually compelling arguments (read: gore pictures and Nazi comparisons) of groups like the "Genocide Awareness Project" remains to be seen.

please enlighten the world as to your ongoing incredibly valid and intellectually compelling arguments against the personhood of the baby in the womb...

I think there are a lot of discussions to be had regarding sentience and moral agency, what constitutes personhood and the balancing of rights that (regardless of whatever conclusion you might walk away from those discussions with) are quite a bit more intellectually compelling than gore photographs or histrionic holocaust comparisons.

Even if I personally were unable to come up with logically valid and intellectually compelling arguments against fetal personhood, that wouldn't have the lest bit of relevance as to whether or not the efforts of groups like the Genocide Awareness Project do. Not A does not mean B.

Your response does raise the question, however: Do you find fetal gore pictures and holocaust comparisons that assume the disputed premise instead of arguing it to be intelligently convincing arguments?
