Or, if you prefer, we can start a new thread and you can interview me first.

I don't have a problem with that.
Not my debate/interview, so this is just a suggestion.
Why don't you ask one question, get the response and then have a question asked of you which you in return respond to?

I've tried that too many times in other threads. I want to try it this way, just once. Plus, I would especially like to have an abortion proponent conduct the same kind of interview of myself.

My problem with that format is that at some point you are going to say something that I will need clarification on. I need to make sure we understand each other so when I answer a question we both agree on what I am saying (or what you are asking)
Thanks from Chuz Life

That is a perfect example of the kind of exchange I am hoping for.

I don't want either of us to be misunderstood or taken out of context.

I remember what you really look like when you used to use your real pic as an avatar. Do you still have a beard?

Anyway, I liked your response about abortion.

A fetus (latin for small child) does not have "brain activity?"

perhaps before the brain is formed. but children at birth have a functioning and active brain. studies show they have memories from before their birth.

so should a scan of brain activity be required of an unborn child be required before someone is allowed to rip it to pieces?
Thanks from Chuz Life

The whole "brain activity" thing is a big red herring, anyway.

Neither brains nor brain activity is found in any of the legal definitions for natural 'persons' or for 'personhood.'

And (like I posted earlier) we have extreme legal cases where children have been born with only a brain stem and no capacity for thought, feeling pain or anything like that. . . and the courts ruled that they were still entitled to the same Constitutional rights that the rest of us are entitled to.

And this is why your attempt to convince to me to your point of view is doomed to fail.

You see the idea of "brain activity" as a red herring, I see it as part of the very heart of the debate.
