Pro-Choice feminist writes about technology

Pro-Choice feminist Kathleen McDonnell wrote in her book on abortion:

“… Developments in medical technology are radically changing the nature of the abortion debate. Our expanding knowledge of fetal physiology and psychology makes it more and more difficult to simply dismiss the fetus in the abortion discussion. The fetus is literally becoming a “patient” while still in the womb, the recipient of surgery and other therapeutic techniques at gestational ages well before the cut off point for abortion.”
