Georgia bill: Personhood begins at conception

Posted by: Hammer / 1:50 PM

Georgia is considering a bill that would make persons out of zygotes. Some are very pleased:

Flip Benham with Operation Save America appears as enthusiastic as Brown about the legislation. "[W]ithout a doubt, [this is] the very best bill that any state has brought before its legislative body yet," he says in a press release. "It is truly an all-out declaration that human life begins at conception and therefore is due protection under the color of law."

I don't have much to say about this idea, other than that I think it's lousy for a number of practical reasons. One practical reason is that fertilization is much more difficult to measure than birth. I suspect we would find my persons "created" on December 31 to take advantage of tax credits for children.



Are you kidding? Get yourself a freezer full of frozen embryos and never pay taxes again!
