In all of our public disputes concerning science, there is no instance more glaring of one faction flat-out falsifying the established facts of empirical science, than that of the pro-choice faction, which must deny the fact that embryos and fetuses are emphatically members of the human species. To conceal this denial of science, pro-choicers continue busily developing a bunch of wooly claptrap known as “personhood” theory. What this theory amounts to is a fraud: we don’t like the plain facts of human embryology, so it becomes convenient to introduce some supererogatory theorizing. The charlatanry issues in bootless distinctions such as that between a “human” and a “person.” Let it be noted clearly that science knows no such distinction. Science is very admirably innocent of these rationalizations.
Again, for clarity’s sake: no global warming “denier,” no brassbound boondocks legislator cursing evolution as a theory from the pit of hell, no scouter of the wisdom of scientific birth control made “free” by public subsidy, can come close to the anti-science ideology of supporter of legal abortion.
I propose a simple principle here: no pro-choicer may so much as mention, in the usual method of belittling conservatives, anything about empirical science, who has declined to confront his faction’s anti-science position on human embryology. If you're ever involved in a conversation where someone tosses out typical cant along these lines, call them out on it.
