Zero Reasons a Fetus is Absolutely Not a Person

In the subject post on Life Training Institute blog, Clinton Wilcox responds to the article titled "14 Reasons a Fetus is Absolutely Not a Person" by Wendy Gittleson. In the article, Gittleson poses the following questions in order to affirm that fetuses are not person:

  • If a fetus is a person then why don't they issue conception certificates?
  • If a fetus is a person then why do they go to an OB/GYN for medical care instead of a pediatrician?
  • If a fetus is a person then why can't we claim it on our taxes?
  • If a fetus is a person then why do we count age starting from birth?
  • If a fetus is a person then why is it often kept a secret for the first three months?
  • If a fetus is a person why does "God" kill so many of them?
  • If a fetus is a person then why doesn't it eat its own food?
  • If a fetus is a person then why does medicine put the life of the mother before that of the fetus?
  • If a fetus is a person then why can't it live outside the womb for several months?
  • If a fetus is a person does that mean a pregnant woman is two people? Can she drive in the carpool lane? Can she buy two items when a store advertises "one per customer" sales?
  • If a fetus is a person, why would a politician even consider a rape or incest exception?
  • If a fetus is a person, why is no one (I shouldn't speak too soon) suggesting the death penalty for women who have abortions?
  • If a fetus is a person then why is the smallest clothing size "newborn?"
  • If a fetus is a person then why aren't adoptions finalized until after the baby is born?
