"( Abortion is murder , since it's the killing of an individual with a right to life .) ( For abortion is the killing of a genetically human fetus , and a genetically human fetus has a right to life .) (Some people try to maintain, of course , that a genetically human fetus does not have a right to life , but that view is clearly unsound .) (In the first place , a genetically human fetus is itself a human being . Secondly, all humans have immaterial immortal souls from the moment of conception onwards , since that is the forthright and unequivocal teaching of the Catholic Church. ) (And so a genetically human fetus must possess an immaterial immortal soul . But anything that possesses an immaterial immortal soul has a right to life . Therefore a genetically human fetus has a right to life, and abortion is indeed murder .") 1. The above passage contains five words, or phrases, that indicate that an inference is being made. Circle each of those inference-indicators. (1 point each, for a total of 5 points.)
