I’m sure you are against rape but don’t you realise that forced pregnancy is very similar in ways. Both violate someone’s bodily autonomy, both are against someone’s will, both involve the person being forced into something they didn’t consent to (don’t even try the ‘sex is consent to pregnancy’ because it’s not.) And don’t try to use the “but there’s another life involved” argument.
Of course I am against rape. If you follow my blog, you already know this. You also know that I have already addressed your argument by turning it around and making the child a part of the equation. Something you and those like you refuse to do.
Abortion is wrong for the same reasons rape is wrong — both are a violent assault against another person’s body and both violate that person’s human rights.
I am working to change the way women think about pregnancy. Pregnancy is simply a requirement of the human condition, just like breathing and eating are. We must move away from the belief that we can sacrifice another human being’s life to avoid that condition.
Once a new human life is conceived, that human being must be protected and birthed. To intentionally cut that person’s life short by aborting them is immoral and inhuman. All of us, regardless of our stage of development, must have an equal right to life or we risk eroding access to this most basic of human rights for everyone. We are the same human being from the moment of conception until our natural death. This is a simple and undeniable fact.
