Not a Mindless Incubator

A fetus does not use a woman's body without her permission, violating her autonomy. Women are not mindless incubators that have no value of themselves. Unborn children do, of course, grow inside of and depend upon their mothers. To call that "use," instead of what it is, is at the least misleading and at most, a plain lie.

Women have wombs. People naturally come into existence inside of women. This is not use; it is womanhood. We are life-givers, and that is exceedingly good.

It is a lie that we must be autonomous, deciding when and how to be mothers in an absolute way. No one has the physical ability to cause themselves to be or not be pregnant, and ending a pregnancy once it has started does not give us this ability. It is simply killing someone.

A fetus is a baby is a child is a son or daughter is a human. And any human is a person. Person isn't a subset of human; it's a synonym.
