@Town Heretic argues against abortion rights based there being a preponderance of evidence that we cannot objectively know when on the timeline, between conception on one side and birth on the other, that the baby's right to life comes into being. Since we objectively cannot be sure, combined with it being such a grave evil if we are wrong about it, we are therefore only morally permitted to forbid and outlaw unjustified abortion.
I recommend reading the first page of the linked thread if you haven't, with Quip's and Town's back-and-forth.

Town's reasoning is simply solid. He doesn't even argue from the position that life begins at conception, he merely ties together the fact that our constitution is based upon human rights and that rights attach at some point between conception and birth inclusive, and that since it's currently unknowable when that point is, that it's simply responsible to forbid elective abortion.

That is completely and utterly wrong. We know, for a fact, that life begins at conception. That is irrefutable Biblical and scientific knowledge.

"rights attach" is babbling nonsense.

TOL user Servent101 [sic], who joined 20 years ago, at age 100 (lol), is "Looking for a church."

If you are looking for a church, consider Mass. This is what "going to church" means according to the oldest, ancientest Christian traditions. Mass is where we weekly abide by the Lord's command to His Apostles: "Do this in memory of Me."
