Put yourself in their shoes... Let's say -you- got raped and fell pregnant... And this is the current development stage of your embryo:

You are basically saying you forgo your right to ownership over your own body and will give it to this collection of cells that hasn't fully formed.

Doesn't mean they get rights over someone elses body.

And what happens when they are born and not wanted?

I find it really really baffling that pro-life advocates are happy to protect, protest and support an unborn fetus... But that is where the support stops.
Because once that fetus is born, they don't care if it ends up in jail, homeless, dead, abused or whatever else.

A child is a lifelong commitment... So if you are against abortion, I hope you are setting aside a % of your wage to support unwanted homeless kids.

And at the end of the day... And with all due respect, you are a male. You do -not- get the right to dictate what women should and must do with their bodies... No man should.

This pretty much sums up the attitude of pro-life activists in the United States

“The unborn” are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus, but actually dislike people who breathe. Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.”
