    Hey man, the ability for corporations to be unregulated and make more profit is way more important than a woman’s fertility or body

    Yes. The only real argument here was the slippery slope argument. Once you define a fetus as a person than that person gets all rights associated with being a person.

    I would imagine given the fact that many pregnancies end in miscarriages that the cost of the insurance would be very high. Which further highlights how ridiculous it is that we would be investigating those potential mothers for murder.

    Why would anybody ever buy life insurance for a baby? Life insurance replaces income if you die. The f-ck income does the baby provide?

    Edit: oh, I get it. It's to fight the Dumbf-ckistan police state that's claiming your fetus is a person and a miscarriage is a murder.

    Carry on.

    I understand your reasoning, I'm just saying that the argument holds no water. Even if companies did technically offer life insurance, they'd find a way to make sure that only those people least likely to have natal issues would be insured, making it a moot point. Either the fetus is out because the mother is deemed too high of a risk and they price the family out of the market, or the company sets too stringent of guidelines just because it doesn't really want to sell the product for various reasons.

    I think an argument that holds no water is a good argument if what it is arguing against also holds no water.

    Get it now?

    No. I think it comes off as a sort of wittiness that college freshmen like to bestow upon the world, neither witty or original.

    Ridiculous that anyone would jump to conclusions that life insurance for said fetus was a “right”

    Sounds like you've just defined the word discussion in the context of a discussion board. Congratulations.
