Alan's replies indicate he believes
(and clarify these fully please if not so):

1) It's a good idea to value the legal rights of a four-cell human being (a day after conception ?)over the legal rights of an adult humpback whale or dolphin or elephant whose brains contain a lifetime of memories and are hundreds of times larger than the human fetus...According to Alan.

2) We cannot compare the destruction or even possible extinction of intelligent animals such as whales or elephants with the destruction of a
four cell human being (day after conception) because, "Two wrongs do not make a right." According to Alan.

3) Fetuses make ethical decisions. At least until we can prove otherwise, we must assume they do so, according to Alan.

4) Having a drink of alcohol is not "killing" but squashing a bug is killing. According to Alan

5) The "dark skinned races" should be compared to fetuses. According to Alan.

6) Non sequitur acquires a hyphen sometime between the dictionary and Alan's essays.

(to be continued if necessary)
