Default Re: D.Sklansky: Why is an embryo a person?

i just wanted to state that the guy trying to split hairs between a HUMAN and a PERSON is probably a fool

I'm not sure who's splitting these hairs -- but it is often equivocated.

Bob dies in the hospital. His body is on the operating table. Is a human on the table? Depends what you mean by "a human". A human body is. But a living human being is not. Using the term "person" makes it easier to discuss, and keeps people from equivocating the term "human".
