YouTube: Pope: nascent life threatened by adults' selfishness:


The Pope describes a human embryo as a "unique individual."  But does an embryo have the same moral status as a person?  Does the Pope's reference to "nascent" life suggest it does not?  For an article in which I discuss the need for clarity and consistency on these questions, see The Meaning of 'Life': Belief and Reason in the Abortion Debate.
