The actual question was when does a baby get human rights, not when does life begin. This is a legal question, not a theological or scientific one. Barry is supposed to be a legal scholar. Which makes his “above my pay grade” answer even more idiotic.

"The actual question was when does a baby get human rights, not when does life begin. This is a legal question..."

But it's related to the scientific one, because the American legal philosophy is built on the affirmation that "[Men] are "endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights," so the question becomes either

Which reminds me of a sharp rejoinder by a friend who, when being informed by a young lady that she didn't know if the child in the womb is "human," remarked, "Oh, dear. If you don't mind telling me ... what was the father?"
