Destroying eagle eggs is killing an endangered species. Abortion is murder. Different crimes in themselves. I'm no bible thumper but the fetus is genetically human from conception and therefore has all rights any other person has. And while a women has the rights over her body, that does not extend to infringing on the rights of the child. Your rights end where mine begin as they say. The mother could have the fetus removed only in two circumstances. Either the life of the mother is in danger or the fetus can be removed without killing it. (Science has yet to find a way to accomplish the latter) And when by the way, is it assumed that all pro-lifers are fundametalist christians? The pic says nothing about religion. I believe that's called an ad hominem. I'm just saying, the argument that a fetus is not a person and therefore has no rights is kind of the same argument used in the case of Dred Scott and the Fugitive Slave Act.

It has no heart, brain or any other defining human characteristics that would or could constitute it to be anything other than a parasite at that point. It has no rights. And like others have said, humans are not endangered and there are plenty of reasons to abort a pregnancy. Rape for example.

Unlike a sperm cell (or an arm, or something), a fetus has a full set of human DNA and is independent from either parent - it's an organism, whereas a sperm cell is not.

It is still not a child. It is a fetus not a person. Dred Scott was a slave. Slaves were pretty much tortured back then. Fetuses cannot feel pain. Therefore it's not the same thing. Yet, These are all just opinions from all of us. No one is right until PROVEN otherwise.

You can't really prove that a fetus does or doesn't have rights. It's a philosophical issue.

But you can prove if it can think, feel pain, etc. If that were the case, I guess I would change my point of view on abortion.

That is true, and many people base their views on abortion on capacity for pain or sentience.
