    Well good thing there’s Catholics for Choice then. Because we acknowledge that the stance on abortion and birth control is mostly form the opinions of a group of men and doesn’t actually have much basis in the Bible. FYI I’m a goddamn catholic.

          (1) The irony of your statement “Read it Better Bitch.” Doesn’t sound very Catholic or Biblical to me.
          (2) Even a zygote by every measure and scientific standard is considered “living.” A zygote is a genetically distinct human organism with a human genome which is comprised of cells, responds to stimuli, grows, carries out functions like digestion and waste production, etc.

          You are free to make philosophical conjectures that a zygote is not “alive.” You can craft your own definition of “life” in such a way that justifies your views on abortion. You can continue to believe that there can be humans (as defined by the science of a human genome) which are not people. But you should be aware that your philosophy is not scientifically based, and not rooted in the Scripture, Church tradition, or any of the ancient philosophies from which the Church borrows. Your philosophy here on what is “living” or “nonliving” belongs to you and the pro-choice ideology, but it derives zero authority from the life sciences or the religion you follow.

          Please do not pretend that this is somehow a “reform” the Church needs to make. The Church is explicit on the topic of abortion. It is intrinsic evil. Either you are a Catholic who believes abortion is a grave injustice, or you are a Catholic who is bad at being Catholic.
