The pro-lifers believe that life starts at conception. I appreciate and respect that belief, though I do not agree with it.
I can understand how a pro-life blog might balk that I saw an ultrasound that looked like a baby and that I could still make the choice to terminate the pregnancy. I appreciate that opinion, though I do not agree with it and I do not respect any individual who believes they are worthy of judging me or my decision......
Yes, seeing that ultrasound hurt then and it still hurts now, but I made the choice that was right for me. Ultimately, it looked like a baby, but it wasn't.
I wonder when One in One Thousand believes human life begins and what evidence she has to back up that view. As far as I can see, her post provides no evidence or reasoning for why she believes life begins at some other point than conception or why she believes that her second-trimester unborn child was merely "potential life."
She says she "read endlessly" on fetal development so I wonder how she thinks that something which was growing and developing wasn't alive.
