16. Stitt is against self-defense and (the) in the defense of another defense? Who knew?

" we donít think killing one to protect another is the right thing to do"

So much for the "good guy with a gun" they like to mythologize.

If you've never considered abortion as self-defense, then you've never considered the various negative impacts of pregnancy on a woman's life.

Sure, abortion itself is the umbrella term for medical procedures that eliminate a fetus. Nothing more.

The value judgement placed on it is put there by people.

But then so is the value judgement on self-defense.

If all killing is wrong, then it would stand to reason that you wouldn't condone killing in self-defense or in defense of another. ("Good guy with a gun"...you would also be against the death penalty, of course)

Making Stitt against self-defense.

But I bet if you asked him, he would say it was OK to kill someone who has assaulted you, or if your life is in danger, or even if you just felt threatened by someone for whatever reason. (various Castle Doctrines in states)

Abortion is, first and foremost, about the bodily autonomy and right to self-determination for a woman. That bodily autonomy and self-determination includes reproductive rights and well as a woman's right to determine what is best for her in her life.

There are a lot of areas and aspects of a woman's life that fall under bodily autonomy and self-determination.

Both physical and mental wellbeing, which does include the right to self-defense to protect either and both.
