Well, I’ll just leave this here for anyone interested in learning a little bit of the science of procreation. My wife and I were at the zoo last weekend when we came across this cartoon about a male and female pair of dolphins mating. While we were laughing at the silly premise of why they were so happy, I started thinking about my own life as a sperm donor.
I have a friend who is a sperm donor and is absolutely adorable when he is in his happy state. Yet, he constantly has nightmares of being a human being. He is also a lot more scared of being a human person than I am. He told me that his first time as a sperm donor was the worst part of the whole process. He and his wife were having their first child and he was terrified.
I know this is incredibly cheesy, but I find the fact that I’m not scared of being a sperm donor is an interesting idea. I don’t know how I would feel about being that person. I don’t think we would be friends, and I don’t think we would have children. I mean, I’d probably want to have kids and I might find myself in a position where I would want to have children… but I’m not really sure how I would feel about that.
I think every parent, male or female, would want to have children. Or would want to be a part of creating them. But I know I would never want to be a part of it. I would want to have a partner in life, but I dont think I would want to have my own children. I know Im not the only one who feels that way. A lot of people want to have children, but they just don’t know how to do it.
In a lot of family movies, we see a lot of people trying to have babies, in many ways, but I think that the real answer to that question is not, “Let me take baby steps”. It should be, “I want to have children, but I dont know how to do it.” It should be something that a lot of people feel. It should be something that Im proud of, something that I want to do.
What we’re talking about here is the process of creating a human. Every human begins with a fetus. A baby is a human, but a fetus is not. So in order to have a child, you have to have a fetus. This is the difference between a human and a non-human.
Yes, it is true that every human begins as a fetus- but that is not the only difference. A fetus is not a human. A non-human is a non-human, which is to say a thing that is not. So the human embryo is not a human, and the “non-human embryo” is not a human either. The term “non-human embryo” is the same as “non-human fetus.
Non-humans are technically not humans, as the distinction between human and non-human remains. But since there are many non-human embryos and fetuses, this does not change their status. Non-human embryos and fetuses are something new, something that was not there before. These may be the first non-human babies born, but they are still non-human. So the term human embryo is not quite right.
While non-human embryos and fetuses are not fully human, they definitely are not non-human. Instead, they are something new, something that was not there before. So the term human embryo is not quite right.
So what does that mean? We still don’t know. It’s not just that we don’t know. It’s that we don’t know what we don’t know. We don’t know the difference between a human and non-human. We don’t know if non-human embryos and fetuses are human or not.
