Every time a mother makes the choice for or against abortion, she is choosing for 2 humans, 2 lives, 2 futures...not just for herself. It is heartbreaking and sickening to see such large numbers of humans that are unable to grasp the simple fact that an unborn child is just as human as the mother. It is sickening to see so many people somehow believe that when mom wants the baby, he/she is obviously and instantly a baby, a human, a person, the moment the pregnancy test comes back positive...but if she didn't want it, then he/she is suddenly, instantly, obviously not a human, not a person, and it's perfectly fine for Mom to have it removed from her body just as she would a cancer or her appendix.
In no other measurement of humans do we remove the personhood of the human due to dependency, size, age, development, or any other reason. Any division of humanity into Person/NonPerson is false. All humans of all ages, sizes, dependencies, or stages of development are Human...and therefore Persons.
