Pro

This requires a pro-life advocate.

First, where does life begin?

Scientifically speaking, a single cell organism is considered life.

Baby, fetus, Deer, Fish, Cow, Dog, Plant, etc.

I believe all life is important and equal. This is my belief. Regardless of whatever God someone may believe in. Unfortunately, the life we live by in this world is survival of the fittest. It may offend me that you kill deer. Yet, I understand that it is survival of the fittest.

So by being pro-life, are you protesting others against their freedom of religion/belief by making your belief system higher in authority to mine? Hurting the 1st Amendment.

Pro-life can be a slippery slope if you define it the way you did.
If even a single cell organism is considered alive, and therefore sacred, no one must be allowed to deworm a dog, as that is violating the sanctity the worm's life. Even tho it's considered a parasite.

Calling a fetus a parasite might be harsh, but it isn't far from the truth. The fetus is not yet human, it is a human in the making. It does not think, feel or sense the way a born baby does. Therefore it can be viewed as not quite human yet, in the same way a caterpillar can not be considered a butterfly. It does give some weight to the pro-choice arguements.

No. Being pro-life does not violate the 1st amendment. It is not related to freedom of speech, or religion, or right to assembly. Which is why no one has tried to convict it as such before the supreme Court.

Which one of you is pro life and which one of you is pro choice? It seems that both comments contain mixed claims.

Also, a fetus is a human being in the same way that a 2 year old human is. It's not like humans go through metamorphosis the same way caterpillars do.
