Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you are not sure better be careful. It is not clear, when life starts, so better protect it as early as possible. Abortion may be killing of a human, the later the more the likelihood, that one can really declare it to be human life. I have the informational approach to assume if there is all DNA together it is worth protecting. Embryos are to protect like humans, although of course any punishment for killing an embryo should not be similar as to killing born human. But babys as well have not yet consciousness, so killing a baby might then as well not be punished in the same way as killing an age 3+ human.

Well that manages to leap all over the moral minefield with heavy boots, and hits all of the mines on the way.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
