Last week, Clinton, Nathan, and Aaron discussed the scientific evidence for the pro-life position. This week, we talk about objections that are commonly raised from people who aren't particularly knowledgeable regarding the science of embryology. Some of the objections we respond to are "An acorn is not an oak tree," "the unborn entity is just a parasite," and the burning research lab thought experiment.
