  •  That womb (6+ / 0-)

    ...I think you have just played your hand clearly.

    Now, that viable fetus is still a fetus until it leaves the womb, and isn't yet a "human being", but the only distinction that keeps it from being a human being is that it's inside the womb.

    "That womb" is surrounded by a woman. A live, complicated, ethical, moral agent who must decide how to balance all the myriad issues that are presenting in her life. Not a single other person is in a better position than she is to determine what should be done with "that womb" than she is. Someone must decide. Will it be her? With her doctor? Or will it be the state?

    We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.
