  •  Twinning is probably the strongest argument (none)
    for late ensoulment, and even theologians admit this.
      Of course the question becomes becomes does ensoulment happen shortly after conception? at viability?  somewhere in-between?
      My point is introducing a notion of ensoulment into the debate gets at least a hearing from anti-abortionistS (and brings it to a point that is ultimately unwinnable by anti-abortionists for the early stages of pregnancy).
      It also helps sharpen people's "gut reaction" that destruction of blastulae is vastly different than destruction of an 8 month old fetus.
