“Here’s the thing:
It doesn’t matter.
It doesn’t matter when life begins.
It doesn’t matter whether a fetus is a human being or not.
That entire argument is a red herring, a distraction, a subjective and unwinnable argument that could not matter less.
It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about a fertilized egg, or a fetus, or a baby, or a five-year-old, or a Nobel Prize-winning pediatric oncologist.
NOBODY has the right to use your body, against your will, even to save their life, or the life of another person.
That’s the argument.
You cannot be forced to donate blood, or marrow, or organs, even though thousands die every year, on waiting lists. They cannot even harvest your organs after your death without your explicit, written, pre-mortem permission.
Denying a woman the right to abortion means we have less bodily autonomy than a corpse.
I don’t know what you think, but I am not going to stand here and let them do this to me. I am going to fight for my rights as a living, breathing American citizen.”

It Doesn’t Matter When “Life” Begins, No Person Can Force You To Use Your Body to Save Their Life.
Bodily integrity is the inviolability of the physical body and emphasizes the importance of personal autonomy, self-ownership, and self-determination of human beings over their own bodies. In the field of human rights, violation of the bodily integrity of another is regarded as an unethical infringement, intrusive, and possibly criminal.
