  •  Okay ladies, I give up. Someone else will (5+ / 0-)

    have to pick a better pithy phrase.

    My education & work in communications makes me try to see and counter both the denotation and connotation of words.     I was seeking a way to give emotional parity to the dead women caused by irrationally turning eggs, efts, and fetuses into their "potential" future.  Trying to counteract their murky & inaccurate "that's a baby" with
    an equally emotionally charged  "that's a mom."

    I sometimes take their "potential person" argument to a similarly silly conclusion that ---- said eggy is therefore a potential soldier.   Thus, since Constitution says I cannot be forced to "quarter" soldiers, forced birth is unconstitutional.   And forced sonogram/transvaginal wanding violates my right not to be searched  and thus forced to "testify" against myself.  

    If govt. can seize our wombs to "save a life" then they can seize anyone's kidney, cornea, bone marrow to "save a life"  of the rich or powerful.    Our men need to get enlightened self interest to help defeat setting such precedents.
