Welcome to science where we have a collective judgment, position, and opinion of the community of scientists in a particular field of study.[1]

Really? Are you going to delve into post-modernism[2] where there is no such thing as objective truth? If that is the case then everything you say is just your own opinion and no more right than anything I say, including the fact that scientists only "believe" it to be true.

It's not an assumption, it is based on the facts relating to the growth of nerves into the cortex brain.[3] These can physically be measured.

I recall being banned, but not for those reasons. Feel free to post what I wrote and critique that. Otherwise it is just your opinion.

We have not even gotten to debating the ethics of abortion (what is right and wrong[4]) by the Socratic Method, we have mostly been debating the facts relating to humanness.

Right, I enjoy debating topics relating to morality as opposed to things everyone agrees about.

Great. So you said "Abortions cannot be done before 7 weeks". Case closed.
