The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan: "The assumption of Obama's critics is that a president should always reduce complex issues to simple black and white truisms, unfounded in reality. That's why they supported Bush. And that's why they're supporting McCain."
In this article, Sullivan, as one can see in the above quote, rather bashes (I assume) pro-lifers for reducing the complex issue of personhood to a simplistic, black-and-white truism. Some do, that must be admitted. On the other hand, for some of us the deciding issue is not whether the fetus (or pre-fetus) is a person, but whether there is human life. DNA dictates that the life (and, yes, potential life) is human. Human life has inherent value from the Creator (made in the image of God, Genesis 1:26-27). This inherent value is the basis of my pro-life stance; conception, whenever it happens and however long it takes--is the process by which mere body parts (egg and sperm) become human life. Since we do not know when the "moment" takes place, I prefer to err on the side of caution.
