From the Canadian Center for Bio-Ethical Reform executive director Stephanie Gray:

“…the uterus exists in one body, to be around—and for—another body. The fact that a woman can live without her uterus but a fetus ­cannot shows that the uterus exists for the unborn child rather than for the mother. The unborn, as members of the ­human family then, must not be denied the environment that regularly waits in great expectation for them.”

"The role of woman as mother means that she (like the father) has a responsibility to her offspring that she does not have to strangers. And while that responsibility does not obligate her to do extraordinary things, such as taking trips to Disneyland or donating kidneys, it does obligate her to do ordinary things, such as feeding, clothing, and sheltering her offspring. To do otherwise would be ­parental neglect. In fact, Western countries have made it illegal for parents to neglect their children. And so, maintaining pregnancy is simply doing for the unborn what parents must do for the born—providing the shelter and nourishment a child needs. It is what is required in the normal course of the reproduction of our species.”

The concept of bodily automony is the “inviolability of the physical body and emphasises the importance of personal autonomy and the self-determination of human beings over their own bodies. It considers the violation of bodily integrity as an unethical infringement, intrusive, and possibly criminal.”

It is clear that dismembering, decapitating, or disemboweling a living unborn human being’s body is an unethical infringement, is intrusive, and should be criminal.
