Abortion

Content note: Suicide

I generally agree with Kelsey Piper’s views on abortion:

The idea of something growing inside me is so utterly horrifying that there’s no question I’d kill myself rather than carry it to term.

I think the usual conversation of abortion which focuses on are fetuses people?’ mostly misses the point. To me it’s much more about balancing the right to life of the unborn child with the right to bodily autonomy and liberties of the carrier. I am mostly persuaded by The violinist thought experiment.
