13. Yet you claim a 3 or 4 day old infant a "person". Another clarification please.
In the choice debate, "but it is a person" is used by the anti-choicers, the ones who want every abortion to be stopped since that is killing a person. What do you say to them? What you wrote here seems to contradict what you said elsewhere that a 3-4 day old is a person. "So the death of a legally living person should go without notice?"

To clarify this post, are you saying an infant is not a "person" until they are self-aware?
