Can you explain to me why a fetus is more important than the person carrying it?

A prenatal child is not more important than the person carrying them, they are of equal importance. In fact, a prenatal child is even equal to you and I, even if they are not living within us. And that’s the point. Your value does not change based on your stage of development. You were the same human being when you were a zygote as you are now. You were the same person when you were a fetus as you were when you were an infant. And you are just as valuable now as when you were an adolescent. You have a right to live regardless of your size, location, or stage of development.

I would fight just as hard to protect your life today as I would have when you were an embryo because your value to me has never changed. I could no more kill you today than I could have killed you while living in your mother’s womb. Both are just as unthinkable to me.
