Look, that is all I am saying: under pro-life ideology, women are always inherently unequal.

What I’m saying is that the ideology doesn’t matter; we’re inherently unequal anyway.

Your view is that abortion has a human price, but the option to pay that price needs to be available to partially level that playing field. That’s fine, but keep in mind that others believe that that price is too high to pay, and that believing that is strongly tied to their religious beliefs, which they have a Constitutional right to hold and not be interfered with.

And that is a choice. You absolve them of making it by attributing it to biology, but nothing about human civilization today is truly linked to our biology without our conscious will.

Yea….I don’t think we’re that advanced yet. A majority of the world still lives in societies where male muscularity = survival, and that women get pregnant as often as they can because half will not see adulthood and in their country, your children are your retirement plan.

There will always be jobs that require a greater degree of physical ability than most women can manage. I don’t see that as a problem.

I refuse to support a society that charges me higher prices for the burden of continuing the species. That is a choice.

I refuse to support a society that treats me like a piece of property instead of a human being with full equality under the law.

Hyperbole. We have parts in us that require more medical attention than a man. I see no reason why I should have to get somebody else to foot that bill. And the article you’re linked to deals with a specific instance of a reprehensible practice, NOT a broad societal matter. You’re reaching.

Because if you think about it, the concept driving abortion activists is that they did not trust their own mothers to want them.

I think the concept driving abortion activists is that they view abortion as a morally reprehensible and religiously sinful procedure (I agree with that part) AND many of them believe that the US will suffer God’s wrath because it exists (I don’t agree with that part.)

I realized that I genuinely wanted my mother to have the freedom to want me. I did not want her forced to have me. That doesn’t seem like justice or like something a free country does.

Putting aside for the moment that a woman who doesn’t want their baby still has the adoption option, do you consider the fact that a woman who really didn’t want her baby possibly changes her mind after its born?
