What'snot rational is allowing governments to control women's bodies.
What is super annoying is when women are rightfully passionate about issues and should be angry, they should be upset and get called hysterical.
I'm surprised this thread is still running. It's given me something interesting to read though
If a baby is born at term then yes, of course it should be a person by law in its own rights. It already is. Once a baby is out and doesn't rely on a uterus to survive, then it is recognised as a person, and so it should be. But a 20 week old fetus? They can't even keep a 20 week old alive with intervention anyway, so I'm not sure how they can say it should have person hood that young.
You ask how is it ok for a woman to be forced to give birth against their will. I ask how is it ok for a healthy baby to be killed for non medically necessary reasons.
- people have different opinions on the issue it's that simple.
I want to touch on something mentioned a few times, the term incubator when referring to a pregnant woman.
It has been used in the 'pro-choice' argument that women shouldn't be incubators to babies they don't want.
I wonder if a woman is carrying a baby she wants, is she still an incubator?
Hmmm... When I hear the 'incubator' argument, I take it in the context of say, an incubator for chicken eggs vs a mother hen sitting on her clutch.
For me, it does suggest some form of disconnect.
