Bully for you. Law in most developed countries now say whether that is true or not, it doesn't matter, including your own.

Unlike Law, truth is not determined by a majority vote.

Well, neither is a presidency. And truth in these cases is very subjective.

Most people do not believe your "truth".

Except the Presidential Election was determined by a majority vote. Trump won -- 304 votes to 227.

When do you believe life to begin? The human embryonic organism formed at fertilization is a whole human being from a genetic standpoint. Sure, it needs to develop and grow, but we are all developing and growing at every stage of life.

You are putting truth in quotes denoting that in this case truth is an opinion. What Borden posts about a zygote being a stage in Human development is fact not opinion....That fertilized zygote is not a wombat or a Gnu....that is also a fact, not an opinion

Except that you are using a definition of human that not everyone, including some religious people, scientists and lawmakers agrees with.
