The mistake in the OP is the assumption that “how things have been” is “how things will continue” therefore “everything is fine so why are you complaining?”

The protest isn’t about the past. It’s about the potentially near future.

That’s how I see where human life begins as well.

I was a premie, born at 6 months. My mother had a few medical scares. But this was before abortion was legal, so it was not an option.

I’ve occasionally asked her, “Would you have?” and she says “No” yet had the option been available and a common option, it’s possible I wouldn’t be here now.

But even KNOWING that, it would not have been an unreasonable choice.

This is something I’ve thought about ever since I first heard of abortion and figured out the timeline.

*If* medical science was capable of removing an embryo and raising it to a fetus and to term in an artificial environment, *and* had the infrastructure in place to raise that person to a point of reasonable self-sufficiency, then I could see anti-abortion being justified.

But until then, I don’t even see it as a question. Abortion must be an option because the mother and fetus are not two persons but one. They cannot be separated and are one person until they can be.
