No, I'm arguing that brain-dead people should have the same rights as people who are not brain-dead.

Have you polled the dead about their political preferences lately? After all the dead should be permitted to vote according to you no?

Brain dead means you are dead. Like that is how death is defined.

It absolutely does if I'm right.

*If* you are right? If????
What makes you think you are?
Moreover, what if you aren't?

Not an answer. Now please answer. Why do you think you are "right" that abortion is so morally wrong it should be banned?

If brain death = death then a fetus is probably not in the same category. We probably shouldn't have equated the two I guess.

Fetuses aren't typically allowed to vote anyway.

Brain dead = dead. A fetus would be classified as brain dead if tested.

Sure, but it obviously isn't dying in healthy circumstances. It's a human life.

consider: Thinking that you are 100% right all the time is the sin of hubris.

Refusing to act against a blatant crime and ignoring it because it's easier for you is the sin of pusillanimity, however, and I'm pretty that d'Aquin classified it as being a worse one than "misplaced righteousness", if it can even be called so.

A brain dead person isn't dying in the right circumstances either.

Its only living by highking a women's body. Much like a brain dead body can be kept alive through major medical intervention.

As for abortion, I do oppose Roe on states' rights grounds. In the case of abortion, something I tend to believe should be legal, this is more of a "how the government(s) should function" issue to me as opposed to whether I think abortion should be legal or not.


The government shouldn't take peoples rights away because it offends some people morality. You are directly arguing that the government should have the right to take peoples rights away because someone finds it objectionable and then turning around and complaining when someone is doing that to you.

Doesn't answer why the fetus should be able to highjack a woman's body. You can believe something is morally wrong, that doesn't give you the right to deny other people the ability to do it.

This opinion is simply an opinion. The government has, and uses, the ability to take rights away from people for various reason.

No, he or she wouldn't for the simple reason that for something to be dead, it first needs to have been alive and thus a fetus can not be called "brain dead" because his brain has yet to form.
Your whole argument hinges on a faulty premise and abusive argumentation, tbh, and being aggressive about it doesn't make it more right.

Do those "various reason" [sic] include the mentioned reason of offending some peoples' morality?

Sure, but we shouldn't actively kill people who are in the process of dying. And if we don't do that, then we obviously shouldn't kill people who are in the process of living: embryos.

So a fetus has yet to gain personhood then. Either way it isn't a person.

A toddler has yet to gain personhood. A mentally deficient child has yet to gain personhood. Either way, they're still a person and claiming the contrary is just peddling Nazi "life unworthy of life" rhethoric.
