No they won't draw a line and no there isn't a debate. This is about women not wanting to face the consequences of their actions. Of course there isn't a 'stork moment' where a baby magically appears in your womb.

"But it's my body" NO IT IS NOT. It is another human body that is growing inside of your body. Grab a 5th grade biology text book. If it's "your body" then women who give birth must be absolutely SHOCKED to see another human body come out of their body.

You do like to talk down to women, don't you? I recall another thread where you call women who would like insurance coverage for contraception "losers"; you also punctuated your (primarily emotional) argument with the notation "ps you were just destroyed." I recall mention of a "3rd grade biology textbook" in that thread as well, which fits your previously observed pattern of taking hold of a single clever idea with your teeth and shaking it, which demonstrates that you are guilty not only of false analogy but also of argument by repetition. I strongly suspect that you are a very young man who's had some emotionally traumatic experience with a very young girl. Of course I have no way of knowing what motivates your foolish and misplaced vitriol, but that's what it makes me think of.

The "real debate", which you rather disingenuously fail to acknowledge, turns on the question of where during development to make the distinction between a clump of cells which just happen to have a certain set of chromosomes, and an actual person which is equal and equivalent to an adult woman, morally and socially.

Since you enjoy illustration by analogy so much, allow me to offer one: failing to recognize that a blastocyst, for instance, is not a person, is like failing to recognize that a walnut is not a tree. Potential ? actual.
