Your question about the coma perso is a good one, but before looking at that - after all, it's a bit early in the thread for tangents - you say you guess you would give rights to the DNA/embryo. What rights would you give it?SugarPixie said:I guess i was interpreting the question in an abortion context - I think I could probably not justify to myself to have an abortion on myself because for me it is living as soon as it is a unique full set of DNA. I guess I would give it rights because I would see the bunch of DNA not as just what it is in the present, but also what it has the potential to become.
I'm gonna push it a little and say.. what rights does someone in a coma have? They are not aware whether they have rights either, and, like a foetus they have the potential to become a concious person.
