Democrat Senate candidate Chris Murphy (at 34:30):
"Ultimately I think that life begins at birth..."
Idiot. The simple callousness of it (a baby seconds before birth isn't alive?) aside, it is an uncommonly clear example of the stupidity and junk science that haunts the pro-death side of the abortion debate.
Human life does not begin "at birth". Humans reproduce sexually, by union of egg and sperm to form a zygote. We don't reproduce by budding, which is the process by which young form from parts of the mother's body, like flatworms.
Human life begins at conception. No debate. We need to get the science right.
The point during human life that we respect life can be debated. The science cannot be debated.
