A viewer who goes by “Slug” wrote in and made the case that the left needs better arguments in favor of abortion rights. The right believes abortion is murder, so the state should handle it as if it were murder and punish the woman and health care provider accordingly. Slug’s idea is that the left should counter this by arguing that abortion is more like organ or tissue donation in terms of the legal framework. Some people are in dire need of a transplant but that doesn’t mean we take organs or tissue from someone who doesn’t want to donate it. If forcing these types of donations is considered too invasive for anyone to talk about doing by law, how is forcing a woman to lend her uterus for a fetus to develop acceptable when it’s even more of an invasion of her privacy and bodily autonomy? Slug believes it’s incumbent of the right to make the case that fetuses deserve more rights than everyone else and feels that should make up a greater part of the conversations about the issue.
