Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say

How about a link to a scientific paper that shows this. It simply is not true.

Scientifically, it is impossible to disregard what society feels. Sociology and psychology are science. That is like saying, "Disregarding what physicists feel, scientifically, gravity's purpose is to keep us from flying." You can claim your opinion is that there is no role for intercourse other than procreation by ignoring all the science that shows its importance in human bonding and relationships. But you can't claim that science shows that.
Ok, so I mis typed that. I should have said the PRIMARY, not the sole. I apologize.

The vast majority of sexual encounters do not result in pregnancy. So, it all depends on how you define "primary". You can't argue that we humans are more than animals on one hand, and then defer to simple biology on the other. Sexual behavior in humans is a complex psycho-social-biological behavior.

Ok then. Disregard that. Have sex for whatever reason you feel like. Still doesn't change my base argument.

If the drill is to be the slaying of disfunctional or irrelevant live humans, then after reading this thread I have two Brit wingnuts in mind, to lead the parade.

Talk about generalizing, the current issue of the Oklahoma Observer says "Not a single doctor or scientist agrees that when a sperm touches an egg -- presto! - it's a person." Can't those against abortion or who are pro personhood dispute that with pages of names?
Can you give me the names of the DR's or scientists who say a fertilized egg isn't human or is dead? Have you read on this very forum some of the posts from actual doctors?

Physicians who do abortions are at the very margins of medicine and among my colleagues are looked upon as those whose main object is to make money. No mainstream physician even thinks about such a practice. From the earliest time of Hippocrates abortion was forbidden by our Hippocratic Oath.
