Reason - Application of facts and logic to consciously make an informed decision Reward - Arriving at the desired results by applying reason, physical, mental, or verbal action Negative consequence - The opposite of a reward, only that regardless of whether or not the applications were made, the desired results were not ach...

point of fetal pain should be used instead o viability as abortion regulation standard

iamanatheistandthisiswhy

instead of being able to regulate when abortion can occur based on viability, it should be based on when the fetus starts feeling pain. the fact we'd have to use pain killers to kill the fetus shows the inhumanity of what is being done. viability is not a magic spot of when a fetus feels pain, or is suddenly a human, take it back a few moments and it's still a person. why not just take it back to the humane point of fetus pain?...
