“Antiabortion forces are indeed giving their strongest arguments when they point to the similarities between a fetus and a baby, and when they try to invoke our emotional attachment to and sympathy for the fetus.”

Jane English “Abortion and the Concept of a Person” in Marty Vetterling–Braggin, Frederick A. Elliston, and Jane English, eds., Feminism and Philosophy (Totowa, New Jersey: Littlefield Adams, 1977) 410
