Here’s another common argument I hear from pro-choice folks:
The fetus is just a part of the pregnant woman’s body, like her tonsils or appendix.
Uhhh…no it’s not. Look at an ultrasound and you’ll see the difference. If my appendix has a beating heart, arms, legs, etc….it ceases to be an appendix. A body part is defined by the common genetic code it shares with the rest of its body; the unborn’s genetic code differs from her mother’s.
Furthermore, The child may die and the mother live, or the mother may die and the child live, proving they are two separate individuals. Human beings should not be discriminated against because of their place of residence.
