You can’t separate violence against women from violence against the fetus.
I’m with her so far. Any violent act against the fetus hurts the woman. (I wonder if she mentions that when advising women on abortion.)
If you’re going to say a person can be prosecuted for killing a fetus you’re giving the fetus the same right as a living person, and feminists like myself, would maintain that the fetus does not have (separate) rights … Rights come when you are born.
Well, a feminist like myself is aware that the upholding of all human rights ensures that our own rights are upheld. Currently in Canada, one is recognized as having rights only after leaving the mother’s womb. God forbid we should question the law!
“Of equality – As if it harm’d me, giving others the same chances and rights as myself – As if it were not indispensable to my own rights that others possess the same.”
– Walt Whitman
