    the idea of women as vessels. As BadKitties said:

    How do you possibly justify stripping women of their humanity, reducing them to nothing more than a vessel?
    A pregnant woman is a "mom" only if she wants to be viewed that way (or if she already has children she is raising).
    Do you think a woman who is pregnant because of rape and wants to end the pregnancy views herself as a "mom?"
    And I know women who have chosen not to have children -- they'd be insulted to be called "moms" if they got pregnant by accident.
    I love being a mother, my kids are the core of my life and my happiness, and I am honored to be their mother, but that is my choice and other women make other and equally valid choices.

    We're not perfect, but they're nuts! -- Barney Frank
