Rather than try to respond to Scripto Scorpio's very long, very tedious post that includes several arguments I have either dropped in the past or have never embraced in the first place, I am going to refer back to a very early post in this thread that exspressed the pro-choice side's perspective of the situation better than anything we've said yet, and it should also put many arguments of you pro-lifers to rest:
All benefits are irrelevant to a woman who is now stuck with a child they neither care for nor want to care for. But I'm sure you are friends with plenty of women who have had unwanted pregnancies and wish they had the child. Wait, you don't? Shocker! Like Psychic said, benefits can only be determined by the mother as to whether or not they are actually worthwhile; no man could ever speak from experience.You asked for "one benefit of unwanted pregnancy" and I provided 6, so... I guess that article does prove much?
Wrong again! Only great apes, dolphins, orcas, elephants, and European Magpies are truly sentient animals, as they are self-aware. Note: sentience is not the same as instinct. Arguing that, because a chicken runs to the chicken feed because it is aware it is there would be wrong. It is the chicken's instinct to search for food and eat it once it finds some.of course they are sentient
This test is how scientists test self-awareness in animals and, ultimately, sentience.
Oh, I'm sure you will. And, either you are a very poor typist, or you have a horrible sense of humor (Mandi? come on, seriously?).@Mandi:
I'd respond to those quotes tit for tat, but most of them were "nuh uh I disagree, with no evidence or argument to consider" so I'll pass. Unless I missed something?
