It's just... wrong damnit! Like selling your own children into slavery or sacrificing them to some so-called deity for another pull in a gatcha game as it were (channeling maximum nihilist energy here on my part).
I mean fuck. This kind of shit is exactly why the "Cosmic Horror" genre got off the ground.
You may not believe in the Devil, but the Devil sure as shit believes in you...
Try to formulate a truly coherent argument as to how second-trimester abortions aren't distinctions without differences.
Maybe you could make an effective argument in the first-trimester where at the very beginning it really does look like a mere "clump of cells" as many have argued.
The problem then becomes the exact moment you'd say the "mere clump of cells" becomes a true and viable "human".
I handily avoid this problem by asserting the embryo is a viable human the instant it is fertilized. Trust me I've got a metric fuckton of "intermediate states" I can imagine and they're all BS in the ultimate and final analysis.
This is likely the result of a tension between and The applied vs. the theoretical (and likely why Alphas as a whole will eternally war against Gammas).
For me, it comes down to yet another distinction without an observable and objective difference. results mattering over theoreticals.
Fuck the latter. What matters is the former. Results in objective reality over all else. and considerations can collectively get fucked.
