Matthew Lu on Potential Misunderstandings (Part 1)
Abortion-choice advocates confuse active potential with passive potential, and thus misconstrue the nature of the human fetus.

The unborn, however, have the active potential to develop themselves into a more mature stage of the kind of being they already are. No outside builder is necessary.
