In an interview, a teenager named Greg explains why he thinks abortion is OK:
A: If you kill it before it’s born and early, I don’t think they should do it like just before it’s born and it’s starting to get its brains and it’s all perfect like a little baby, but if it’s just getting formed and it’s not totally a baby yet, maybe.…
Q: When do you think it becomes an equal human life?
A: When it starts getting formed – at about six months. When it’s not formed, it’s just a little spermy thing.”

The baby has a brain giving off waves at only 6 weeks.
Greg’s opinion is based on misconceptions about preborn babies and their development.Share on Facebook
