Bush & Conception

One position is that it begins at conception. Another position is that it begins at birth. Most people probably fall in between those two positions.
The question becomes is this a debate that we should be having with Republicans? In the course of that debate we can point out that Bush's approach means no abortions for rape, incest, and perhaps to save the life of the mother. It means that the government gets to control this very important decision and not the woman and her doctor.
Of course, the downside may be that there is no consensus on this issue in the Democratic party, but the question then becomes does there need to be a consensus?
