“Oh the joys of feeling your stomach expanding to carry a human being!”
— one of my pregnant, pro-choice relatives.
Not wanting to restrict other people’s bodies (being pro-choice) means you NEVER can want children nor can you enjoy being pregnant yourself, right?
Nope. Merely pointing out the inconsistency in accepting and admitting the truth that her unborn child is a human being while simultaneously supporting the denial of life to other unborn children on the grounds that they aren’t people.
It’s not a matter of denial of personhood. It’s about another organism using someone’s body without consent.
But I’m pretty sure we’re consistent when we repeatedly say “only the pregnant person can decide if the embryo they’re carrying is important.”
Just because someone can look at another human being and convince themselves they’re not really a human being doesn’t make it so. How a woman sees her child doesn’t have any affect on who and what that child actually is.
