In an absolute world, there is no war, destitution or starving children. That world does not exist. Nevertheless, we become self-reliant to get through the everyday grind. The question that I want to ask is; "Can heritage influence our views on abortion?" Moreover, I am not going to debate if abortion is right or wrong. Everyone has differing opinions in today's society.
How do we arrive to elicit this state of autocracy? For many members of society it is a political certitude. However, for some it could be a scientific credence. Furthermore, for several, it is a philosophical view. Each member of society has a differing personal conviction.
Do you believe that the interpellation, "when does a human person's life begin" is a philosophical question? There are certain professionals who believe that philosophers, bioethicists, theologians, politicians, nor obstetricians, should answer this question. Scientists believe that Human embryologists should answer this question.
A quote by Ronan O'Rahilly, the human embryologist may explain our existence. O'Rahilly claims, "the procession of events that begins when a spermatozoon makes contact with a secondary oocyte or its investments, and ends with the intermingling of maternal and paternal chromosomes at metaphase of the first mitotic division of the zygote. The zygote is characteristic of the last phase of fertilization and is identified by the first cleavage spindle. It is a unicellular embryo." [LI]
Dianne N. Irving later translated the quote. Irving's cites, "the fusion of the sperm (with 23 chromosomes) and the oocyte (with 23 chromosomes) at fertilization results in a live human being, a single-cell human zygote, with 46 chromosomes--the number of chromosomes characteristic of an individual member of the human species." [LI]
Following edification, on the philosophical along with scientific aspects, my conviction is stronger. My heritage evoked how I elected my personal tenet. Furthermore, my parents raised me by grace through faith spawning my personal conviction. I chose to aspire my heritage likewise my parents Faith in God.
Finally, how does our heritage influence our views about the issues of politics? Anthropology would define my position in society; a Southern raised, God-fearing, flag saluting, heterosexual, Anti-Abortion, Pro-Gun, Conservative, Red Blooded American Country Girl.
How did you decide that you are either Pro Life or Pro Choice? Did a person become an influence?
What influenced you to make your personal conviction?
Biology? Heritage? Education?
Can heritage actuate our views on abortion?
"All persons of good will need to understand the clear and present danger with which the US
is being menaced by the health reform proposed by the Obama Administration. Abortion will be
multiplied, the U.S. will move ahead on the road towards euthanasia, conscience rights will be
in jeopardy: but what is worse, the United States would start moving towards a tyrannical,
socialist government that would be the source of all sort of moral evils."
