Joyce Arthur and Abortion
from the website Unmasking Choice
Why doesn't anyone challenge Arthur on this "competing rights" thing? If rights are to compete, they should be equal rights. What is being juxtaposed here is the right of a woman not to be pregnant against a fetus' right to be born, in other words, a right to life. They are not equal by any stretch of the imagination. The woman only has to be pregnant for 9 months, then it is over for her. Her life does not end, it has some inconvenient changes in it, but the life of the fetus is simply ended. That is a huge difference.
