Since Mississippi voters failed to pass Initiative 26, the Religious Reich Republicans believe they know better than the Vulgar and plan to push HR212, known as the “Sanctity of Life Human Life”, nationwide. This would not only give zygotes personhood and make abortion illegal, but also illegalize some forms of birth control. In effect, this bill would make women nothing more than baby factories.
Personally, I am tired of this anti-woman, anti-science, draconian patriarch.
If Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” is true, then I dare anyone to refute these scientific findings below. Of course, I will warn you now, if you do not desire an education, then I suggest turning back now, because it is true, reason and knowledge can destroy faith in the supernatural.
An acorn does not equal an oak tree.
Similarly, a zygote does not equal a human and I will tell you why.
Looking at the ultrasound below, one might think it is a human fetus.
It is not. It is supposedly a puppy fetus.
Below is a video of fetal development and while the video concerns human development, other animals develop much the same way.
A lot could happen between zygote and blastocyst stages, including a miscarriage. The first trimester is generally when most deformities develop.
Secondly, can you tell which of these pictures below is human?
To the untrained eye, they all may look potentially human, because we all start out like this and DNA, if turned on at the right time, if at all, decides if development becomes chicken, elephant, dog, dolphin, human, kitten, or mouse.
For the record, the fifth picture is supposedly human and the rest are in order as previously stated, but even humans start out with tails, which eventually disappear and turn into tail bones, which are remnants of our primitive pasts as primates and animals in general. The same is true of the limb buds, which develop much the same way, but DNA coding decides if the zygote develops human limbs or canine limbs. We are no different from other animals in terms of development, which, if you think about it, is gross.
Therefore, I dare to take this argument further than my fellow non-theist and say according to this bill even dolphin, elephant, dog, cat, and chicken zygotes have personhood, because we do not know what they are, except for the mother’s physical features saying that this zygote might be a chicken or a dog.
This bill is great for animal rights and welfare activists, because even our pets will receive their rights as people if the Religious Reich succeeds in having their way. How could their zygotes not receive personhood when they look exactly like human zygotes?
Humans resemble other animals until well into the second trimester, at least, unless certain DNA does not kick in and then you end up with…
This person supposedly lives in China and if he really does exist, then I hope, for his sake, his life possesses quality and not quantity. If such a condition actually exists, it is extremely rare, but stranger things have happened in nature, so who knows if it does exist.
Likewise, given that dolphins develop vestigial limbs, which eventually fuse together into a “tail” and sometimes they do not. Sometimes they develop bulbs on their tails, which are remnants of their own evolutionary past.
Theoretically, humans could develop “mermaid” like lower extremities, as seen on the Elephant man link, because we are related to dolphins through evolution, but such a condition would also be extremely rare, if it does exist. Development is a matter of which chromosomes switch on during development and in what sequence.
If the right sequence does not kick in, one, if successfully born, can live a few minutes to a few years with sever deformities. Nice “god” the Religious Reich created, especially if such a deity exists and wants people to suffer. In my opinion, that type of deity would not be one I would want to worship.
More often though, we see deformities, such as the little Indian girl with eight limbs, who recently underwent surgery to remove the twin her body absorbed during gestation. Hindus in India considered her the incarnation of the Hindu goddess, by the Indians of India.
With DNA, we find our closest relatives, the Bonobo. They are 98% genetically similar to humans, but the 2% difference in the sequence is what makes them Bonobos and us humans. However, during gestational development, the naked, untrained eye, could not tell them apart. Even the mouse, as Robert Jones shows, is not much different in genomes and as I showed above, gestationally it looks no different until the proper DNA kicks in during fetal development.
Supposedly, this is a chimpanzee fetus, but as another source stated, it is difficult to tell the difference between a human and chimpanzee fetus. However, the gestation time for chimps and humans is about the same. Thus, if the gestation period is about the same and if this is a chimp fetus, then it is probably in the early stages of the final trimester.
So not only will there more deaths occur from childbirth, but also more tragedies of genetics. The potential of more mothers and babies dying from childbirth increases, as well as deformities’, if the Religious Reich Republicans pass such a bill.
However, the third issue involved in such a bill is that it gives personhood to all zygotes, not just human zygotes, because there is very little difference between the various zygotes of any species. They all look alike at the zygote stage of development. This news is good for other species on this planet, because it could potentially save endangered species, but not good news for human females. Animal Rights and Welfare activists could have a field day if such a bill passed, but many human females and their offspring could potentially die, if not suffer from debilitating health issues.
