So you believe that a tiny speck—a zygote,
blastocyst, embryo or fetus—has rights over a woman?
Women arenít stupid. We know itís a baby that is growing just like we
did in our motherís wombs. That is why most women who feel they have emotional
and financial support donít have abortions.
I donít believe in discrimination based on size, age or location. Do
you believe that a child has less of a right to exist because he or she
is small? Are large or tall people more valuable than small or short people?
By that logic, most women would have fewer rights than men!
For years, abortion advocates have been pitting women against their unborn
children, dehumanizing the growing child with misleading phrases like
“blobs of cells” and “products of conception.”
Fetus is a Latin word meaning “young child” or “young
one.” But in practice, fetus has become a clinical, dehumanized
term for an unborn child.
Imagine if some group tried to deny medical care for gravidas.
Once someone figured out that was the Latin word for pregnant women, the
bewilderment would quickly shift to outrage.
Because women deserve better,

P.S. Next week's question: Isn't feminism about a woman having rights equal to those of a man?
Check out what
we've done for women lately.
"Abortion is a reflection that we have not met the needs of women. Women
deserve better than abortion."
