The Problem With “Life Begins at Conception”
Joel Looper

I’m surprised that people are still having the philosophical debate about ‘when life begins’. Because it actually doesn’t matter; one’s personal philosophy about ‘when life begins’ is irrelevant. Abortion was, and is, an entirely political issue: Can you tell a woman what to do with her body? Can you make her carry a baby to term? No. No matter how much your wrangle it, you’ll never come up with a legitimate reason.

In Canada, our Supreme Court finished this debate twenty years ago. Some MPs tried to raise it again, and Trudeau wrote: “The days when old men get to decide what a woman does with her body are long gone. Times have changed for the better”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
