Fetuses vs. Acorns
This is an important clarification question. Some well-meaning pro-life advocates only focus on the fact that a fetus is biologically human, but that’s not always helpful. Sometimes people use the word “human” to mean a valuable person, and we need to be prepared to give an argument that every member of the human species is a valuable person.
In reality, an acorn is a very young member of its species and an oak tree is simply a mature member of that same species. Acorns aren’t oak trees in the same way that fetuses aren’t adults. Adults and toddlers equally deserve the right to life, and similarly, adults and fetuses equally deserve the right to life.
