Re: Just my twp cents
I'm fairly sure that a 16-year-old would have a much easier time functioning without her mother than a fetus would. She is capable of feeding herself, dressing herself, ensuring that she drives/bikes/walks/takes mass transit to wherever she must go, and holding down a job in order to make herself some money. Furthermore, if she needs a mother figure, it doesn't have to be the woman who gave birth to her. She can live independently of her mother's body. That's why the fetus=16-year-old analogy fails, because a mother can be free of a 16-year-old child and her demands if she wants to be, but not of a fetus... unless she has an abortion.
