Would you eat an aborted fetus?

:iconcleverzed:
Cleverzed Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'll preface by saying that I give zero fucks about abortion, have got no opinion of it one way or the other. I just thought this was an interesting rhetorical argument that seemed to be not anything I'd seen considered before.

The usual (pro-choice) argument is that an aborted fetus is just a clump of cells, correct? While the pro-life argument is that it is a human life. So, it then seems that the first should consider it similar to chewing fingernails, while the latter would call it cannibalism. Of course it's not a perfect comparison, but for the sake of this particular scenario, where on this line would you consider it - if you're pro-choice person, who /wouldn't/ want to or consider eat an embryo, why not? Is there some point in level of development at which before, you would, but after, you wouldn't?

Or would it depend how it was cooked? :B

Because i have no idea what religion makes you eat an aborted fetus...

Nah, I wouldn't.
Maybe it's because I don't bite my fingernails, or maybe because I can't picture myself eating a fetus. I dunno. :XD:

Lol :lmao: that is just gross, I would never want to eat a embryo....because of where it came from, plus it might have bones, probably soft ones, but still, I prefer my meat to be non-crunchy :lmao:...makes me think of balut :lmao: ( I never tried that though )

Hmm... That depends. Would I be able to fry it up and sell it to rich people as a delicacy? I chew the skin on my fingers and eat it... I like the taste of that, so if fetus is anything like that sure. :) I'll have mine extra crispy with salt, please. I think 3 minutes in the microwave would do it. Works on chicken skin. :)

... gross...

I wouldn't eat it, no matter what stage of development. I wouldn't want to eat it any more than I'd want to eat the placenta, which I wish Tom Cruise shared my opinion on...

Well, I prefer boneless, pure meat. Like, I'd have a taste of a healthy, amputated limb (from e.g. one in the 9th month), but an early fetus is full of these undeveloped bones and organs, and on the photos it looks so fragile, like some weird aspic, and I don't like phlegm-stuff.

I'm pro-Taygetus, by the way.

I think I'd find it more easier to eat a dead human adult than an aborted fetus :stare: It just seems kinda gross, plus, how was it aborted anyway? It might not be safe to eat >.> There is a huge difference between chewing your nails and eating a fetus, people chew nails as a nervous habit, not for nutrition. It's a bit more of a choice to eat most things.

I'm pro choice but at the moment I would not eat it because I'd think it's gross and there's other food available that I do like. For me that's similar to eating snails, I just can't because I find them gross.
If I was nearly starving I'd eat it of course. That's something else... ='D

The line "it's not human and just a lump of cells" has never been part of my arguments in debating the pro-choice side. It's definitely human... ish, but that's irrellevant to the question of whether the to be or not to be mother has a right to her own body or if pregnancy is to be forced upon her and her bodily rights violated. Whether I'd eat a fetus is an entierly separate issue for me, to which I'd have to say probably not. I don't like the taste of human flesh and the fetus doesn't look very appetizing. Plus, I think it may be illegal.
