Pro-choicer: abortion is the loss of a “distinct life”

Pro-choice advocate Margaret Olivia Little:

“Even at early stages, human life has a value worthy of respect. Miscarriage or abortion represents a loss. Not just a loss for those with hopes of a child, but the loss of a distinct life that had a good in at least the organismic sense and that was, as it were, on its way to becoming one of us.”

Nevertheless, Little supports abortion.
