Dr. J. wrote on this subject over a year and a season ago, that is that new life begins at conception. That is scientific fact. It has stronger evidence than global warming, and certainly stronger evidence than man-made causes of global warming (sorry Neil), stronger evidence than the current cosmology theories, and it even has stronger evidence than the best current theories of evolution (which six out of six Gormogons and the Roman Catholic Church endorse, by the way).
The reason this evidence is so strong is that the experiment has been done in labs, in vitro and in vivo, in a legion of animal models, including humans. To be fair, we’ve never grown a living being from fertilization to completed gestation ex vivo, but that is neither necessary, nor sufficient to prove the hypothesis proposed (that life begins at conception).
Dustin Siggins reminds us, again, at NRO today that our liberal friends suck at science despite subscribing to I Fucking Love Science on Facebook, and following Neil Tyson on Twitter. The fact that there are opinion polls on scientific fact is pretty frustrating.
As Dr. J. said last time:
“The only honest policy questions to ask, therefore are when is this person’s right to life protected, and when and under what circumstances this right is trumped by the rights of the mother? Any other questions are less than honest in a policy debate regarding abortion.”
