I frequently find myself in abortion arguments with people who just cannot wrap their minds around the idea that I think the fetus deserves human rights. It’s like they believe I just bring up fetal rights as a red herring to distract from my supposed hatred of women. They do not believe the fetus deserves human rights, but moreso, they cannot bring themselves to believe that anyone truly believes the fetus deserves human rights. It’s really irritating.
Even so, it was interesting briefly stepping through the looking glass to see abortion from the other side. I could only hope to write so compellingly as to inspire pro-choicers, however fleetingly, to comprehend my perspective as well.
