Embryos are people

icebeartheawesome

So this is not a pro-life vs. pro-choice debate, because I'm not arguing whether killing an embryo is justified or not, I'm arguing whether it is a person. So, the definition of a person is "a human being regarded as an individual" (https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/person). Humans are simply a species of animals (https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/human_being). So a person is a particular animal that is an individual. An embryo has a set of human DNA and is made of living c...

Abortion is wrong

Ah yes, one of the most famous bioethical issues out there. So I'm against it, here's why: I think it's wrong to kill people and I think fetuses are people too; they have their own DNA and are forming their own bodily systems.

I have been looking into anarchism lately. Some people believe in it because of all the crimes governments have committed in the past, which I get but it seems like without government, everybody is at a loss what to do in certain situations, so chaos could ensue.

The #metoo movement is inefficient

Looks like the point of the movement is to "help survivors of sexual violence" which makes sense, but proponents of it want to "de-stigmatize survivors," and they are "committed to disrupting all systems that allow sexual violence to flourish." All this info is from metoomvmt.org (it's really just one page). Technically, you do not "survive" sexual violence because it does not kill; you can survive attempted murder, which can go along with rape, but that doesn't mean you survived the rape. Anywa...
