Secondly, I'm not pro controlled crying. I'm pro letting your kid protest cry when they are trying to fall asleep ("wah... Pause... Wah... Pause"). If a parent goes in after xyz minutes and then leaves I think it's confusing for the bub. If you go in, you should stay until bubs settled. But I'm not that fussed about it either way.
I hope that clarifies things.
It's still hypocritical to say that a baby has more rights before being born, and then not after!

I can't believe you're all still talking about this!

It is different (for me) as abortion and smoking (IMO) due to their proven/serious/permanent nature cross the line into the Abhorrent. It's like an 8 and 10 out of 10 on the unconscionable scale as opposed to a 3. That's why I'm against smoking when pregnant/abortion and don't care so much about cc.
I'm sure you understand the concept of a sliding scale of severity and adjust your views accordingly. Eg someone that pinches someone is still violent, but isn't as bad as a murderer or rapist.
