Where Do You Draw The Line?

Since I was a kid, my logical, non-religious Pro-Life (really anti-abortion) argument has always been ... where do you draw the line?

If you have a human 1 second after birth (of course, Obama disagrees, but I digress), then why isn't it a human 1 second before birth?  Indeed, if you can deliver a baby weeks early and it's a human once it comes out, why wasn't it a second before, even if it's weeks early?   So, conception becomes a very safe, clear moral line. 

Well, it appears that at least some of They Who Like To Smudge Lines have moved their line to somewhere past birth.   But they would never do that.   Oh yes.  Yes they would.

The FDA can regulate your body.

The Federal Department of Health and Human Services will control your health care.

Now to ratchet down how far from death you have to be before you're no longer really a person.

Hey, anybody have a copy of Logan's Run?

But that would never happen.
