…. Are you serious? A medical procedure that can save women’s lives =/= a family pet being killed out of spite. The personal decisions of women about their health and livelihood and futures BEFORE a fetus can even feel pain =/= a family pet being killed out of spite. The decision to be responsible and have an abortion when you know you cannot support a child or carry a fetus to term (physically, mentally, financially, emotionally, whatever the case may be) =/= NOT THE SAME AS KILLING AN ESTABLISHED BEING IN THE WORLD OUT OF SPITE. And you’re ignoring the point that if abortion was not legal, women would find a way to do it anyway (as they have been doing since the beginning of time) and end up sick/sterile/dead. Making that a poor argument in the first place. Your cat/little girl drowning in a river comparison is weak, by the way. There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between a non-established being that has no sense of pain (until after the cut-off date in which one can legally get an abortion) or connections to the world (a fetus) and a creature that already exists within society, such as a little girl that can very much feel fear, pain, misery, et cetera. It’s not a ‘weird values issue’. You’re completely missing the point and drawing parallels for no particular reason. They might hate this ‘liberal’ for a host of different reasons, such as wanting to make gay marriage legal, wanting to raise taxes on the rich, whatever.
