It blows my mind that people think fetuses should have more rights than people who aren’t cishet white and able bodied

Yeah, me too. Actually, everybody should have equal rights, regardless of sex, gender, heritage, ability or age/stage of development.

By denying a person an abortion, you’re saying that the future rights of the fetus are more important than the rights of the pregnant person.

The fetus is not supposed to have FUTURE rights, it is supposed to have rights by the time of conception, because it is already a new human individual with a unique set of DNA at this point. Then, both parent and offspring should have equal human rights. Since taking the right to bodily autonomy is temporary and taking away the right to live is permanent, forcing the pregnant person to give birth is the lesser evil than allowing them to erase the fetus existence.
