Reproductive Rights; Choice; Your body

A woman’s “Reproductive Rights” have been successfully exercised when she has reproduced.  And that’s what a zygote, a fertilized ovum, an embryo, a fetus, an unborn baby, is, a little ‘reproduction’ of her and her/his father.

“Choice” is the “choice” to do something that frequently causes babies.  I deplore rape, incest, molestation, and ill-advised “consent,” and thank God they don’t happen more often; most sex is by “choice” of one kind or another … a couple days before each conception.  You too, who “don’t want to be made a father against your will”: When there’s a baby in there, you already are, usually in accordance with your “choice” to also do something that frequently causes babies.

“The choice to continue the pregnancy”?  Killing your child in your body, who is totally dependent on you like at no other time in her/his life?  If you can’t bear to keep her, and your family, neighbors, friends can’t help, let some other family craving a child adopt him, or something.  In the overwhelming majority of cases in this country pregnancy and childbirth are a marginal risk to you, if any.  But think of the baby.

And mother, “your body” ends where your baby’s umbilical cord begins … and sooner if s/he hasn’t made it there yet from your Fallopian tubes.

But by no means should a mother, a father, a couple, a family be left alone by their neighbors, society, in their time of need or trial!
