Debate continued from here because the discussion was getting unwieldy
Audrey and I have been having a debate on the nature of the human embryo.
I have been putting forward the scientifically obvious truth:
That a zygote produced by two human beings is an organism of the species homo sapiens, i.e. a human being.
And Audrey has been disputing that.
Her objection is in the way I use the word "human".
She does not think that the term "human being" applies to a zygote.
All of what I said is LOGICAL.
She did refute the notion that a human embryo is an organism.
She did not refute the notion that all organisms are classified by taxonomy.
She did not refute the notiont that the human organism is a homo sapiens.
She did not refute (in fact you agreed) that a human organism is a homo sapiens.
If a human embryo (i.e. the offspring of two humans) is an organism. If it's an organism of the species homo sapiens, then it's a human being.
Biologists will AGREE with me. Many abortionists agree: abortion takes a human life.
The moral argument comes later, but that's the plain reality. Abortion kills a human being. This is a biological truth.
