| | When does Human Right begin?
I always try think in terms of what I think the future holds. We know that our civiliation is barbaric at times. The whole burning witches at the stake for example, slavery or not allowing women to vote.
Yea there must be things that we do now that in the future they'll look back and say "What were they thinking?" !
If you think about human existence and what happens when you die? Well we all know that the heart stops beating.
The heart is the miracle that pumps life through our veins. It delivers nutrients, oxygen, white blood cells, etc. The heart is the little engine that says your body has life.
The baby's heart starts beating at 5 weeks.
I predict that in the distant future that humans will universally accept the 5 week period of when life begins.
I know that today there are adoption issues, rape, insest, and other issues of inconvenience. It could be that in the future that they are able to extract babies at 10 weeks for example. There could some day be a law passed that you must agree to go to the hospital to have the baby incubated if its 5 weeks or older. The mother's wouldn't have to deliver full term but then the babies would have a shot at life.
I am just trying to think with clarity of what I think the future will hold. I know that we can't predict the future but this would be my guess.
What say you?
