  •  I think that is a losing argument... (0+ / 0-)

    to say that it is a medical procedure just like having a tooth pulled. All life is on a continuum, from conception until death. We just use the arbitrary marker of 'inside the woman, or womb' as our marker for what we can control because it is within our bodies. To take away the humanity of it makes the pro-choice movement a cold, callous and unfeeling stance that moves away from women's rights and into an area where we are the arbiters of when life is valuable and worthy. That should not be our goal. We should acknowledge that all potential life has intrinsic value, but a woman's right to choose trumps that. If the pro-choice movement starts down the path of an abortion is equivalent to other medical procedures it degrades those who have grieved for their unborn caused by whatever reason.
