Person 1: Many embryos die naturally anyway, so abortion is no big deal. Person 2 (our hero): Hm. I think all people have equal value, regardless of their life expectancy.

Life Expectancy

The leading cause of death in the U.S. is most likely miscarriages. These deaths of preborn children are tragic, but widespread death in no way justifies killing more people.

Person 1: Many embryos die naturally. Abortion has the same outcome. Person 2 (our hero): True enough. But centuries ago, the child mortality rate was very high. It still wasn’t okay to kill toddlers back then.Person 1: 1 in 3 women gets an abortion. Person 2 (our hero): I agree that abortion is common. I think women getting abortions often have good intentions. But sometimes a lot of well-meaning people choose to do something wrong.Person 1: Even a worm is more complex than a human embryo. Person 2 (our hero): True enough. Which would you say is more “complex”: a newborn infant or an adult African elephant?Person 1: If I showed you human and rat embryos, you couldn’t even tell the difference. Person 2 (our hero): True, but only because the naked eye can’t see the important differences. Fortunately, our value doesn’t depend on our appearance.
