Abortion and the right to choose
Every woman has a right to control her own body.
- "Every woman"
At least half of aborted fetuses are female; some females are aborted because they are female. They don't mean "every" woman, they mean powerful women.
- "Has a right"
No one has absolute legal right over his/her own body: e.g., drunk driver/car; child with chicken pox/classroom; streaker/public; suicide, drugs.
- "To control"
Control can and should be exerted before conception occurs. Abstinence is 100 percent effective.
- "Her own body"
Pregnancy means there are two bodies, one within the other. To an extent, the unborn baby controls the mother's body. The fetus would be rejected as foreign tissue from the womb if it weren't for the placenta, which is a fetal organ that the baby's very existence places in the mother's body to protect itself!
