"A person’s a person, no matter how small." - Dr. Seuss
That quote was about American occupation of Japan post WWII, not fetuses.
Dr. Seuss was extremely pro choice and regularly donated to Planned Parenthood and sued people using this exact quote for pro life propaganda. His widow continues donating and suing pro lifers that use his words like this.
…Okay? However, does that make the statement incorrect? I have no problem removing his name from the post, but his words still ring true in this context.
They really don’t though? You cannot take the words of an extremely pro choice person about a completely different subject on your propaganda that goes directly against his beliefs and have nothing to do with the quote itself.
It’s not only disrespectful, it’s just plain silly. Nevermind that fetuses aren’t actually classified as persons, so the quote is meaningless anyways.
"A person’s a person, no matter how small." Taking that quote, all by itself with no context, still has the desired effect for this cartoon. Dr. Seuss doesn’t own the idea behind the words, they can be interpreted to each individual’s discretion provided that those words stand aline, with no context. I went to the original post and removed his name. I didn’t make it, I just agree with it. Because yes, fetuses are people, and saying anything different is like saying that, in comparison to an adult, children and toddlers aren’t people either. Just like being a baby, child, teen or adult, being a fetus or an embryo is a stage of human life. They are human. They are alive. They matter.
Fetuses: Not sentient, not aware, unfeeling, incapable of learning, not conscious.
Persons: Sentient, aware of ones existence, consciousness.
Infants+: Sentient, aware of their existence/the world around them, conscious.
Coma patients fyi have measurable consciousness and awareness of the world around them even while comatose, a fetus does not.
Therefore fetuses =/= persons and yes, it makes perfect logistical sense to say that a fetus i not a person where an infant, toddler, teenager or adult is.
And no, you can’t just remove his name to avoid a copyright infringement. His estate actively owns that quote, it is copyrighted you are still in violation of it (and also plagerism now since you deleted just his name). In order to not be you must remove the entire quote.
