Pro-Choicer: abortion should be available even if baby is separate from the mother

Pro-choice Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee:

“The date at which a foetus might be viable has nothing to do with a woman’s right to choose. Someday an embryo might be reared in a test tube to full-term, but that changes nothing for a woman’s right not to be a mother.”

Polly Toynbee “On abortion, the media need to reflect what is happening in the real world Guardian August 31, 2014

Toynbee apparently supports killing the baby even if the child could be raised in an artificial womb.Even if the mother didn’t have to carry the baby in her womb, this pro-choicer still thinks abortion should be available. . This implies that the purpose of an abortion is not to end a woman’s pregnancy, but to ensure that her baby dies. The right to “not be a mother” entails the right to kill the child, whether or not the child needs the mother’s body to survive.
