Atheist Christopher Hitchens on the “unborn child”

7 fingersAs a materialist, I think it has been demonstrated that an embryo is a separate body and entity, and not merely (as some really did used to argue) a growth on or in the female body. There used to be feminists who would say that it was more like an appendix or even—this was seriously maintained—a tumor. That nonsense seems to have stopped… The words “unborn child,” even when used in a politicized manner, describe a material reality.
