it should be obvious enough from all the other things I'm into that I don't give a damn what another woman does with her own body.

It's when you start to claim that "your body" includes something that is quite clearly another person entirely - sleeping when you're awake and waking when you're asleep, using its own eyes to look at things you'll never see, experiencing dreams that you'll never know about, hearing the same things you do day in and day out and processing them independently without consulting you etc., that the argument gets a little ridiculous.

inspired by

people making controversial stamps and then disabling the comments are like my primary source of inspiration lately.

Pro-choicers: "I have no rebuttal to this argument, so instead I'll use strawmen fallacies and regurgitate dime-a-dozen pro-choice rhetoric."
It is technicly a part of a woman's body, making it a part of her.
The woman is in control of its life, if she doesn't eat, it dies, if she doesn't drink water and other healthy drinks and foods, it dies.
And it is a parasite.
Parasites need a host to feed on, the fetus is the parasite, it's stuck in its host for some time, taking resources it needs.

a fetus isn't a person.

But the fetus is in your body and is taking your nutrients. It will also weaken your bones because it will take the calcium if you don't get enough.  A fetus isn't a person, either. It's not even sentient. A person has individuality, a mind, self-awareness, and sentience. A fetus doesn't. A fetus doesn't really have much of its own body either until it's able to survive outside of the womb.

And if a woman doesn't want a fetus to use her resources and be in her uterus, she can remove it if that's what she wants to do. Pregnancy is very taxing on the body, and maybe she doesn't want to go through that. Especially if she got raped. Do you support forcing a woman into giving birth to a rapist's spawn even if she is young because it is "not her body"? What about children/very young teenagers? I guess they can't get a potentially life-saving abortion, then.

To put it very simply: if you don't want a fetus, you have every right to abort it without being judged and called a murderer (because, you know, killing a fetus is on the exact same level as killing an infant, or child, or adult because a fetus is ~*just as sentient*~).

BTW anti-choice is anti-woman/anti-women's rights. It is also potentially pro-abandonment and pro-rapist.

I'm honestly surprised people believe this. But sometimes we all have to remember that there was only 1 Albert Einstein, only one Thomas Jefferson and an ever expanding amount of normal minded people who swab the earth. But you're right in a sense. Even if a life is one unloved, unwanted, possibly hated and tormented by the mother who may or may not have a permanent father or funds to raise the life, its still a person, no matter how miserable.

Hitler was also a person. His mother almost had an abortion because of shit, but the doctor made her continue with the pregnancy. Whoopsiiiiiieeees ~

The only time I would ever actually consider having abortion is if I was raped and got pregnant. I didn't want it and I most likely won't.

Otherwise, if you didn't want a damn baby, keep your legs closed.

Ok, so, you don't give a damn what I do with my own body.

So, if I wanted to expel something from my body, that would be OK, right?

Because I don't want to house a fetus. In my body. 

If the result of removing said fetus has a deleterious impact on said fetus, then that is the problem of said fetus. 

I don't have any issue destroying this cluster of cells 

Admittedly, by month 3 it starts to kind of resemble an actual baby. But it still won't live without my cozy uterus. Fetal viability is the point at which abortion becomes illegal-- when the fetus has a chance of surviving without the woman's uterus.

You should use your vast intelligence to invent an incubation chamber capable of keeping alive 3 month old fetuses outside of a woman's body. Then we'll talk. 
:clap: Well said
