So. Let me get this straight as to your viewpoint: Right from the point that cells are joined and the dna is there. To you its a human being. No development necesary. And purely due to its potential to grow into a "human" adult? even in the absence of any organs. and it is terrible to "kill" it. Somone on a respirator might not be developing, but they dont have far to develop. Also the development is not necesairly them but the technology that'll "bring them back". So someone that can develop back to independant functionality shouuld never ever be killed but somone who cant develop back to independant functionality due to technological limitiations, its ok to pull the plug on them? So if its 1000% guarenteed that they are a repeat offender you are happy with capital punishment? Without attempting rehabilitation/ learning/ growing advancing a human being?
