When Life Begins Based on Feelings, Not Science, Says MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry claimed on Sunday that the answer to when biological life begins is not based upon science, but rather "depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents."
Harris-Perry was trying to compare the birth of the royal baby to unwanted pregnancies of women in America, notes CNSNews.com.
“When a pregnancy is wanted by the mother, father, even the country, it is easy to think of the bump as a baby,” Harris-Perry said.
“But not every pregnancy is a fairy tale. There are other stories. An ultrasound reveals severe birth defects. A child is raped and becomes pregnant. Another baby would jeopardize a mother's ability to feed her living children. A woman decides she does not want a child at all. These are different pregnancies. They are reminders that an unwanted pregnancy can be biologically the same as a wanted one. But the experience can be entirely different."
“Eggs are fertilized. Embryos are implanted. Cells divide and multiply. Fetuses grow. When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling, but not science,” claimed Harris-Perry.
