This argument comes up quite often:
Please, isn’t it about time to use the correct 21st century medical nomenclature. A fetus is not a baby any more than a man’s sperm or a woman’s ova is a baby.
Er, actually, there’s a big difference between sperm and a baby, and an egg and a baby. Modern man: You’d think we’d have nailed down the birds and bees by now.
Tanya adds: This letter is a great example of non-sensical pro-abortion thought.
As for those people who seek out an abortion for sex selection, this reflects their misogynistic attitude towards or about women…
The fight for enlightenment and equality and access to safe medical abortions is part of the women’s movement and is still an ongoing struggle.
Pairing abortion with equality is misogyny. If we embrace women, why draw the line at rejecting their capacity to reproduce? It’s not an illness, the fact that we get pregnant from having sex!
