This ask references this post.

Two things:

1. See this post on ectopic pregnancy to learn more about this tragedy.

2. As the OP made clear in their original post about 12 Years a Slave

There is one very powerful scene in 12 Years a Slave which succinctly sums up the position of the pro-life movement and our core opposition to abortion.

It takes place between Samuel Bass (a Canadian carpenter played by Brad Pitt) and Edwin Epps (a brutal Southern slave owner played by Michael Fassbender).

Bass: ‘The law says you have the right to hold a nigger, but begging the law’s pardon… it lies. Is everything right because the law allows it? Suppose they’d pass a law taking away your liberty and making you a slave?’

Edwin Epps: ’Ha!’

Bass: Suppose!

Edwin Epps: ’That ain’t a supposable case.’

Bass: ’Because the law states that your liberties are undeniable? Because society deems it so? Laws change. Social systems crumble. Universal truths are constant. It is a fact, it is a plain fact that what is true and right is true and right for all. White and black alike.’

Imagine this was a conversation about abortion, and the treatment of unborn human beings, and you might start to get a handle on why the modern pro-life movement is so very necessary.

Okay, wow. Two things: 1. do you know anything about an ectopic pregnancy? The fetus is NOT IN THE WOMB. If left to grow, it can *literally* kill the woman. 2. Why the hell would anyone compare \'12 Years a Slave\' to abortion? Have you seen it? Solomon Northrup was tricked into slavery because no one believed his identity. So he worked to try and gain favor and his freedom until a Canadian abolitionist spread word North and he was freed after 12 years. There\'s no comparing the two.
