The World According to Rubio . . .

According to Senator Marco Rubio (R Florida) there is a 100% scientific consensus that life begins at conception.

This is a fascinating claim from a scientific ignoramus. Consider if this were true. You could immediately claim an extra deduction on your income taxes. You could ask your fetus to get a job, support him- or herself, and maybe charge for room and board. (Talk about a taker!) I know of no agreed upon scientific definition of “life” so a 100% consensus on it beginning in a long train of human reproductory events (injection of sperm, egg fertilization, zygote development,  … , birth, suckling, … , etc.) in any particular place is beyond comprehension. We have a “legal” definition (or rather definitions) of when life “begins” to avoid the potential absurdities associated with the birth of a child. When a child is born, it is either dead or alive. If it is alive, it is accorded privileges (but not full privileges) as a citizen. A definition of life beginning at conception would be a legal nightmare. What rights would the little beastie be accorded? I believe the Senator would insist upon the right not to be aborted. For anything else he cares not.

He also cares not about truth or reality and is willing to lie, cheat, and steal to become President. Interesting process we have here, the one where we ask our political candidates to prove their worthiness to lead . . . by not understanding important science topics like climate change, conception and birth, etc. yet still having “firm” and often bizarre beliefs on those topics.

  1. I say when the blastocyst fails to implant (roughly 1/3 of the time, usually without the knowledge of the mother), he should take God to court for murder.

    • Even worse, twins occasionally merge in utero to create a single individual with two different genetic codes. What happens to that other “person?”

      You are dead right about the failure of a large fraction of all pregnancies. The ignorance of these religious zealots is appalling and the problems they would create through their ignorance is worse.

        • Who knows what lurks in the brains of Republicans; not even the Shadow knows! (You are probably are too young to get the reference, but you know “age and deceit will win over youth and enthusiasm every time!”)
