Are you all saying that because causes beyond our control cause more pre-natal humans to die that that means it's ok for us to go ahead and throw in and be a cause for that to happen as well? Like, welp, so many babies are already dying before they are born, we minus whale just go ahead and start killin' 'em as well?
I think the miscarriage stats speak to The stance that says: If you leave that fetus alone it will 'definitely' become a human being thing.
Not all embryos or fetuses will become a fully developed human, regardless of what a woman chooses to do with her body. A fetus is merely a 'potential' human being.
The miscarriage stats for me speak to the reality that a fetus is not a fully developed human being and is merely a living thing that is 'in the process' of becoming a human...there are many things that could happen along the way that could prevent this from occurring.
