As you correctly point out, the majority of the states you cite define a person as a human embryo in any stage of development, which is essentially the second fertilization occurs.

However, these states almost all allow provisions for abortions.

To me this is not a scientific or "humanistic" authority, but a political stance.

In my mind, the question comes down to: Do you consider two cells as a person?

And then you must ask one further question to address doc75's question: is it the same thing to abort 2 cells vs. abort a 15-week old fetus?

Personally, I answer "no" to both questions.

I would just add one clarification.  The states "allow" for abortion because it's mandated under Roe v Wade. I feel confident that the statutes would be considered unconstitutional without the abortion exception.

Which is all fine and good, but I'm curious what your response to those two questions are.

It would appear that the bulk of the states along with the federal government - at least when it comes to the taking of the life of an unborn by someone other than the mother and her doctor - would answer you questions in the affirmative.

Yes and they also allow abortions. Hence my comment about the states having a political stance and not a scientific one or a humanistic one. Which is why I asked what you think
