A simple but elegant argument against abortion: there is no morally significant difference between unborn and already-born human beings

By Paul Stark Since you, me, toddlers, teenagers, etc., have basic rights, and since there is no morally relevant difference (that is, relevant to whether one has basic rights) between us and human beings at earlier, prenatal developmental stages, it follows that unborn humans also have basic rights. This precludes killing them for the reasons …
