This work does not properly belong to the series of Pope pictures; its significance is that of a precursor or a point of departure, and although the image of Innocent X governs in the background, it has not yet become the main force shaping the picture as a whole.
However, there were two sides to the coin: on the one hand, the realisation that the masters were unsurpassable forced the modern artist to acknowledge and accept his own limitations, but on the other, it represented a continual challenge, spurring him to renew his efforts in the pursuit of an impossible goal.
But in order to do this, his study of Velazquez's portrait on Innocent X had to engage with the traditions that it sought to criticise and accept their basic framework of assumptions.

 Portrait of Innocent X by VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y
Pope Innocent, aged seventy-five at the time, was a man of remarkable vigour, with a great capacity for work and a hot and violent temper.
The fascinating nature of a man aware of his own power is wonderfully expressed in the contrast between the face and the fine nervous hands, which convey the sensitivity of this powerful figure.

 Michael Tooley's Philosophy Home Page
In the context of the present anti-abortion argument schema, however, the idea is to interpret the claim that an action is very seriously wrong as making the strong claim that the action in question is morally on a par with the intentional killing of an innocent, normal, adult human being.
Two of the premises in the argument schema do not involve the term "X", and so they are constant regardless of what expression is substituted for "X".
(3) Therefore it is at least prima facie very seriously wrong either (a) to kill an innocent X, or (b) to refuse to act as a life-support system for an innocent X in circumstances where one is responsible for that individual's being in need of a life-support system and where the individual will otherwise die.
