Pro-Choicer compares late term babies to insects

“Fetuses, especially those as old as five or six months, elicit our sympathy…because they look disconcertingly like people; their physical features are recognizably human. But this sympathy is misplaced…. While a fetus of five or six months may, perhaps, possess some flickering of sensation, or some capacity to feel pain, this is equally true and probably even more true of creatures like fish or insects….a proper respect for the right to life requires that it not be respected where it does not exist.”

Mary Ann Warren, Commentary on “Can the Fetus be an Organ Farm?” Hastings Center Report October 1978, p 23-24

    Babies are still treated like Property and assigned a price tag. Way too much propaganda around how it costs 200k to raise a child. Too much celeb body worship surrounding expecting mothers fetishizing motherhood and parenting industry. Also treating mentruation as alien and ugly and then glorifying a woman breastfeeding whole doing yoga and balancing her checkbook.
    Its nuts. And men are not expected to value life or take emotional or personal responsibility for their one bodily functions and behaviors. Do you think woman would choose life if they had moral support and confidence? Yes they would. Babies are Human beings not an extra Bill to pay which is how society treats them!
    Stop making childhood a commodity and glorifying consumerism in the parenting Industry! It’s cheapening the priceless lives of oír children!
