6. I respectfully but very seriously disagree with you

I want it to be safe and easy to obtain when necessary, but it ends a life and I don't want to live in a world where we start treating unwanted fetuses as dental cavities.

I feel that when we treat pregnancy like a virus, we play into the right wing's hands, because we're saying, sure if it were a "life" it'd be wrong, but it's "not life," so it's okay. Who says we don't have the right, ultimately, to decide to end that life in favor of the mother? But let's not pretend this is just a cluster of cells. Either all life is sacred, or it's meaningless.

It's all sacred, and sometimes we have to make hard choices.
