I hate arguing about abortion with people. Not because I can't understand their side of things (I can!) and not because they don't try to see my point of view (they do!) but because people get WAY TOO HUNG UP on biological untruths.
Like just today, in a cult I recently joined on VampireFreaks, I was told that no matter the woman or the condition of her body/pregnancy, ALL BABIES have a heartbeat at 5 weeks, tops.
I'm really wondering where this person is getting her facts, simply because they're wrong. Heck, my abortion at 5 1/2 weeks yielded an ultrasound that depicted my embryo as no larger than a dime. Truth.
But all babies have heartbeats at 5 weeks, when most haven't even developed beyond an organized clump of cells. Not Fact.
To say that every single pregnancy is going to develop at exactly the same pace and in the same fashion is just a moronic fallacy. There's no other way around that. Every woman's body is different, depending on her DNA, her biological structure, her current health situation....so thus every pregnancy will be different, yes? It seems fairly logical to me.
See, I'm guessing this idiot arguing so vehemently is likely not even out of high school. She probably has no active experience with pregnancy and I'm sure, from the sound of it, her school's abstinence only sex-ed course is likely feeding them lies.
I fuckin' hate this place.
