Embryo is “Human Life” But Abortion is Still OK

Ann Furedi, the chief executive of the largest independent abortion provider in the UK, said this in a 2008 debate:

“We can accept that the embryo is a living thing in the fact that it has a beating heart, that it has its own genetic system within it. It’s clearly human in the sense that it’s not a gerbil, and we can recognize that it is human life… the point is not when does human life begin, but when does it really begin to matter?”

  1. So if its a woman’s right to decide when life begins to matter for our children, shouldn’t we be able to decide when it doesn’t matter anymore?

    My question is just as absurd as this woman’s statement.
