Argument Question: Is Life A Discretionary Status/Title?
Background and Context
This is a argument question for abortion debates (see: Debate:Abortion, Debate: Human life as beginning at conception). Mind you that this is not a "When does life begin?" or "Where does life begin?" argument question but simply is asking this:
>1: IF we can give the status/title of "living/having life/alive" to certain fetuses but not others (or in such cases babies but not fetuses) then is the status of alive discretionary?
>2: IF the status/title of "living/having life/alive" is discretionary what constitutes the deeming of the term being bestowed upon a human?Of course as you might have reasoned by now this is a argument question because if life is a discretionary status/title then abortions could easily be acceptable because the baby/fetus is too young to be deemed alive.
