Pro-Choice man says pregnancy turns a woman into a “broodmare”

Pro-choice activist Donald Regan:

“Pregnancy is painful. It involves a significant risk of death. It represents an intrusion into the most intimate parts of the woman’s body… Laws forbidding abortion involve the requisitioning of the woman’s body by the state… [The woman is] relegated to the status of a broodmare (for this is how the pregnant woman may well view the matter) by society at large.”

Many women would disagree with this man about pregnancy. This pro-choice activist, who is presenting pregnancy as a terrible violation, is not writing from any kind of experience.

Billions of women worldwide are or were mothers, and many of them embraced pregnancy.
