The new pope (Pope Benedict XVI) recently said that an embryo (not fetus) is a "full and complete" human being, despite being "shapeless." Obviously this speaks directly to the practice of abortion.
WITHOUT NECESSARILY DEBATING ABORTION, what do you think about what the pope said? Do you agree? Disagree? Why?
If you don't agree, when is a embryo or fetus a "person" - imbued with the rights and privileges of legal protection etc.? How do you make sense of this issue?
