Is a newborn baby a person?
Does a baby have the 5 traits that define personhood, therefore making it a "real" person? 1.Conciousness. (of objects and events external/internal to the being) 2.Reasoning. (developed capacity to solve new and relatively complex problems) 3.Self-motivated activity.(activity which is relatively independent of genetic/direct external control). 4.The capacity to communicate.(on indefinitely many possible topics). 5.Self-awareness, self-concepts.
Come on man, you must be kidding. Of course, a person is a human being and a baby is an undeveloped person, even at conception. A human being goes through phases that begin in its mother's womb. So even in the womb a baby is a person. I believe anyone who aborts an infant who is in its mother's womb is guilty of murder because that infant is a person.
I agree with Farasucan: A newborn baby is a person...everything you mention the baby has to develop over time. I also agree with Farasucan that, even in the womb, a baby is a person. Everything that is born has to grow and develop over time...Like I said in another hub, which you commented on, I am amazed at nature and the process of how things develop...Extremely fascinating to me. I think the gift of life is just that...a gift.
