I'm somewhat confused however about what the questioning of the intrinsically of human rights has to do with abortion specifically.

(That definition is a whole 'nother can of worms I'd rather not have to get into and is only remotely relevant to the issue at hand, but we can discuss it if you like.) Fetuses do not fit into my definition of people. My moral stance on killing things that are not people, the way I define them, is wishy washy, at best. Hence my uncertainty on abortion.

The difference here lies in what we define as living human being. And that does not occur to anything under 3 months after conception. Because after nine weeks of pregnacy the fetus develops a heartbeat and the formation of inner organs.
the brain begins to be developed during the seventh week but is not really developed until week 24. only then it begins to work.

a fetus less than 3 months old can not be considered its own full fledged human being.
also, since i neither believe in god nor destiny, supernatural and all that stuff,
since i dont believe in a soul, i also dont have the moral dilemma.
life yes, human no. we, as humans are the sum of our DNA and the impressions we gathered during our life. nothing else.
last but not least, i do not want to convince anyone to change his/her beliefs. I would rather have you stand by your beliefs than change them out of a hunch. it is good if you think about new ways to explore your life but that doesnt mean you have to change the old stuff you know.
i am just trying to make MY PERSONAL point clear. and i am happy that some of you do not agree with me. makes a discussion worthwhile
