The talking points robot said - "It's all a faith claim. There's no science."

MSNBC Talking Head Calls Babies “Things That Might Turn Into Humans”

Harris-Perry talked about how much it costs “to have this thing turn into a human” when referring to an unborn baby.
During the rest of her talk she “accidentally” breaks a model of a fertilized egg, claims there is no science supporting the notion that unborn children are human beings, and dismissively refers to babies.
Transcript:  Oh, no. That might be bad. I seemed to have popped open the fertilized egg. We’ll put that back together. But the very idea that this would constitute a person, right? And that some set of constitutional rights should come to this.  Look, I get that that is a particular kind of faith claim. It’s not associated with science. But the reality is that if this turns into a person, right, there are economic consequences, right? The cost to raise a child, $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year. When you’re talking about what it actually costs to have this thing turn into a human, why not allow women to make the best choices that we can with as many resources and options instead of trying to come in and regulate this process?

The idea of equal rights for anyone - women, blacks, whites, men, etc. - is all a faith claim.

The faith is that anyone who is a human being belongs to a species that has a claim to moral rights shares an equal claim to moral rights.

The science is that human beings start with a fertilized egg and have an identity that endures thereafter until death.

I take it that no one gave a response to this nonsense.
