Thanks for pointing out what has been bothering me about the "Bach argument"!    I see what they're saying, but it's almost playing right into the hands of the pro-aborts; because I'm sure a lot of them would love to have a way of knowing if a particular unborn baby _is_ the next Bach, because then they could have a reason for protecting that one, and not one who wasn't. 

I love your opening point, too, about seeing a person first as a person and not as a relative number.  It's very easy to get caught up in focusing too much on the externals.  I think people see this very easily when they're talking about children who are "already here;" for instance, someone who was worried about overpopulation and famine in Africa wouldn't suggest killing off starving African children; but they need to realize that a baby in the womb is "already here" too.

Stay informed
