Pro-choice argument: "It's just a blob of tissue, like a clump of cells; you're not killing anything".
This is an argument that has picked up much support from pro-choice people and mislead many of others into believing that what grows inside the uterus is in fact not human.
We can all agree through scientific evidence that cells are the building blocks of all humans, plants, and living beings. A "clump" of specialized cells forms specialized tissue such as muscle, skin, or bone. In turn, groups of different tissue types arrange to form our organs.
Classifying a fetus, embryo, or zygote as just a "blob of tissue" or a "clump of cells" fails to completely explain the development of the child at these stages. At every stage of development in our life cells and tissue are present.
Let me explain the false reasoning in this argument.
1. We are all, in simple terms, a clump of cells and a blob of tissue. The only difference between our cells now and our cells as a fetus is the number of cells that make up our body. Our cells will constantly multiply, starting at our earliest stage as a single celled zygote.
2. It is impossible to abort a "clump of cells". Think about this logically. Does the abortionist use a microscope to find these cells, and if found what does this clump look like? For the abortion to occur, the abortionist must first be able to find the embryo or fetus on the ultrasound. To abort a "clump of cells" or "blob of tissue" would be to abort a living human being. We must remember that if a "clump of cells" or "blob of tissue" is not living, than neither are we.
