You are confusing what a fetus will become with what a fetus is. Before consciousness there is no self, therefore no suffering.<quoted text>
If someone you don't know kills someone else you don't know, is it your business? No, not really. But would you want the killer prosecuted and kept off the streets? Most people would say yes.
It's alive. You shouldn't kill it because you had a valley girl moment and decided you just don't need that burden right now.
But the mother is a real person with a self and a history. Her suffering is a very real concern.
So yeah, if she has a "valley girl moment" and wants an abortion it ain't your business. There's no person to suffer. A potential person is being terminated, not an actual person.
Now before you go to the extreme, I'm not saying girls should use abortion as birth control. And they don't. There aren't that many abortions being performed anyway and nearly all of them are very early in the pregnancy. This idea of a genocide of infants is an invention of right wing nutters and appeals to the dumbest people only.
Abortions should be: rare, safe, early.
F*ck what the church thinks about it. It ain't the church's vagina, now is it?
