No argument from me there.
But either way, 99.99% of pregnancies do not result in the death of the mother. So if we assume that the unborn have entirely equal rights with the mother, then 99.99% of pregnancies wouldn't qualify for abortion under the current legal concept of "self-defense." The self-defense scenario would only apply when the life of the mother is at risk. The argument that "all mothers lives are at risk" is unreasonable. Statistically, almost none of them are.
actually its very reasonable since it involves forcing against the woman will, that's what is key . . not odds
forcing the woman to risk her health and life against her will is where the wheels fall off and due to the location of the child equal rights is factually impossible
using that logic if you are a sky diving instructor, you have two chutes and you have done 10000 jumps but for some reason, you don't want to jump today and i force you to jump against your will and somehow you die I'm totally not to blame them right?i mean it was only like a 1% change of you dying, that's not my fault right? because of odds
what are the changes that anybody in your home are going to kill you? do odds matter there?
what if its a bigger stronger, trained guy and its a smaller woman the broken in to his house . . whats the odds he can be killed? not allowed to use self-dense?
im not saying you are im just speaking in general and ill never be ok with treating the woman as a lesser, as a human incubator and this is why the vast majority of 1st world countries with governments based on rights and freedom have prochoice laws
