Pro-Choice apologist Dr. Garrett Hardin:

“Whether the fetus is or is not a human being is a matter of definition, not fact: and we can define it any way we wish….It would be unwise to define the fetus as human (hence tactically unwise ever to refer to the fetus as an “unborn child.)”

Garrett Hardin “Abortion – Or Compulsory Pregnancy?” Journal of Marriage and the Family 30 (May 1968): 250-251
