Women do not care what the personhood status of the fetus is in deciding whether or not to have abortions.
Joyce Arthur makes this point with Jerry Agar, and I fully agree.
Pro-life education campaigns need to draw attention to the humanity of the fetus at all stages of pregnancy so that it would filter into our subconscious that the fetus has humanity and matters in an extraordinary, supernatural way.
But pro-life counselling in the midst of crisis cannot focus on personhood, because that is not the predominant issue for women in crisis.
It is truly any number of the following issues: My life will change too much, I can’t envision this going well, I need to keep training for my Olympic bid, I don’t have the money, my husband is against me, my boyfriend will leave me, etc. etc. etc.by
