Pro-life AbortionsEspecially when the ones protesting have aided someone with getting an abortion or got an abortion themselves... then think only their abortion is just.
I'm not 100% sure of the accuracy of these stories, nor am I saying this is the case for all pro-lifers, but they're interesting, and I have no doubt that, even if these specific people don't exist, people like them do:

One of the major issues I have with pro-life arguments is what they consider life. We have cadavers kept "alive" for students to learn with (hearts beating, nerves feeling, and all that jazz - they can even ****** (which is how we're sure the nerves, or at least some nerves, are working)). The only thing not "alive" is the brain, and I think the rest of the organs don't functionally run. The thing is, you can almost directly compare a fetus with such a learning cadaver, as gross as that thought is. The fetus cannot hear anything or feel pain until the third trimester (sometimes just before the third trimester). While it's heart and other such bodily functions may exist and operate before then, the fetus is essentially brain dead until then. The only major difference between a fetus before the third trimester and a "living" cadaver is that fact that their brain can grow and develop to be able to control their bodies and its functions. But abortions only occur during that part of pregnancy to save the mothers life. So arguing about late-term abortions is silly. Embryos and fetuses are potential life, but they are not a life, because you do need some sort of brain that really functions to be a living creature - something an embryo/fetus doesn't have. I've never heard it called murder to let a "living" cadaver "die," so I have a very very hard time considering abortion murder. Pre-life is not life, nor is after-life "life" really a life. It really is that simple, as cold as that sounds.
