Argument on the criteria of personhood & its moral implications:
Mary Anne Warren was an American philosopher who was famous for her cognitive criterion of personhood, presented to recognize the difference between a person and a human being…
Dr. Mollenkott is an American feminist who is notably recognized due to her work in feminist, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender theologies. Mollenkott presents her point of view which is very similar to the Warren’s Cognitive criteria. She stated that:
“But in all truthfulness, the most that biology can claim is that the fetus is genetically human.... The issue of personhood is one that must be addressed through religious reasoning. Hence, the Lutheran Church in America makes a qualitative distinction between the claims of the fetus and the rights of a responsible person made in God’s image who is in living relationships with God and other human beings. Except in the most materialistic of philosophies, human personhood has a great deal to do with feelings, awareness, and interactive experience” (Mollenkott)
