Gerry- Since you didn't understand me, let me restate it.
Like you said, you want to err on the side of caution. Which is reasonable. Since you can`t get pregnant and are unlikely to get someone pregnant, it is convenient for you to say life begins at conception.
Maybe if you had more at steak (and religion was out of the picture), you would be more reasonable about the definition of when life starts.
Don`t get me wrong here. If laws were written to make me happy, abortion wouldn`t be legal...but for other people, an abortion may be a tough but good decision.

I really didn't want to get into this fray, but good ol` Andrew155 has been spewing his nonsense yet again...
@Andrew155 says: "even Europe has stricter laws than us. Their laws would be considered KKK laws here."
You do realize, I hope, that Europe is not a country? Lumping Europe`s abortion policies together is plain stupid, and your conclusion is nothing less than ludicrous.
Of the roughly 47 countries that comprise Europe, NONE totally restrict abortions, two (Andorra and Ireland) allow abortions only to save the mother`s life, and five or six others compel you to state the reason for wanting the abortion (but they`re still allowed). The other 35+ countries have laws nearly identical to ours.
Andrew155, please educate yourself before posting further inanities, m`kay?
