    With respect to women generally, he wants to take away their bodily autonomy via a forced-birth stance.

    With respect to his mistress specifically, he clearly seeks to take away her bodily autonomy to decide for herself whether or not to carry her pregnancy to term.

    Both are pure expressions of anti-choice sentiment.  And that, I think, is the key for the anti-choice crowd.  Care for the unborn is clearly not the issue, as they (by and large) show little to no concern for these children from the moment they leave the womb.  Rather, this is fundamentally about usurping the control and bodily autonomy of women.  And it always has been.
