“If you really believe that a foetus is a human being from the moment of conception and deserves the same rights as any other human being, then you are led inexorably to suppose that abortion is mass murder on an industrial scale. There's nothing wrong with the logic. It's just that you have a mistaken view of the facts of the matter.”

    This is an utterly stupid quote. First its got practically nothing to do with atheism and secondly when a foetus is defined as “human” is a highly debatable question that has more to do with science and philosophy than religion.
    Andrew Brown is calling his personal opinion the truth without backing it up with any kind of logical and rational argument, something that is actually the trademark of religion.

    Like Thomas Linder I can’t link from this quote to atheist/atheism.
