Abortion Defenses Sucked in 1971, & Haven’t Gotten Any Better Since

I recently came across an old essay by Judith Thomson, which offers a defense of abortion that basically boils down to: yes it’s a person, but it’s still okay to kill him/her in most cases anyway, since the mother never gave him/her express permission to use her body.

Other than, y’know, CREATING the baby.

Why do pro-choicers ever win elections, again?
