Why do republicans think a fetus isn’t a part of the mothers body?

“It’s the baby’s body not yours!” Well actually, it’s common sense that if something is literally attached to your body, by another body part, then it IS part of your body. Saying as a fetus is residing inside the womb and connected to the woman through placenta and umbilical cord, then it quite literally IS a part of her. And we’re allowed to get rid of it just like we’re allowed to say shop off a toe or finger if we really wanted to. The fact that it has a separate heart is irrelevant, what if someone was born somehow with two hearts? You gonna insist the heart is separate and it’s own person because “only one heartbeat per person”?

    Because it isn’t.

    The fetus is more like a tumor, cancer, or parasite, hence morning sickness.

    It is an organism made from the hosts cells and foreign DNA that consumes resources and nutrients from the host.

    People say the republicans want control over you and your body and that's why they dislike abortions. That's completely false, its because aborting a baby is murder.

    Listen, I’m all for women making their own damn decisions, but are you seriously comparing a fetus to a tapeworm? A lot of people grow up dreaming of raising their own children, and guess what? All of us out here, not inside of our mothers anymore, each of us was once a fetus. People don’t grow up dreaming of having tapeworms that will grow into beautiful beings, because they don’t. Tapeworms are 100% bad, that is not the case for fetuses. Seeds, however, can grow into beautiful flowers, so if we need to compare a fetus to something, then a seed is much better than a tapeworm. People plan making children like they do a growing a garden. They plant the seed & they’re excited to watch it grow & if they’re lucky it grows into something beautiful. That’s not the case for everyone though. You might buy the seeds not intending to plant them & one can slip out, or maybe someone put a seed there & you didn’t want it, or you planted the seed & found out it would destroy your yard. It’s your garden! You get to decide what grows in it! People may plan children like gardens and they may grow like flowers, but children are not flowers and a fetus is NOT a seed. A fetus IS part of the mother for as long as it needs to be, but then it can grow up & turn into someone with legs that can walk, ears that can hear, eyes that can see, and a brain that feels a range of emotions and ponders topics like abortion. Tapeworms, seeds, toes, and fingers cannot grow up and become what fetuses can & it would not be so easy to just get rid of them or chop them off if they could. I hate to break it to you, but a fetus is an unborn developing child, not a parasite.

    Republicans will twist the truth to meet the needs of what they want which is to control others. Big brother wants to watch over you and make your decisions for you.

    Unless the mother is from Galifrey she doesn’t have two heats

    A separate heart beat would indicate a separate body

      Jessop and Serena are trying hard to miss the point, here. If the fetus were truly part of its mother's body, then it would have her DNA. If the mother happened to have two hearts of her own due to a birth defect, then she would have had both hearts since birth. Dru zod isn't talking about that.

    republicans can't govern because they're clueless and lack all feeling toward their fellow humans - they're creeps and should never be in politics.
