"What they fail to understand is that “life begins at conception” is a misogynist statement. It’s the erasure of a woman’s role in making new people, and a claim that the only effort that counts is the effort a man put into ejaculating. Abortion is horrifying because it’s a reminder that men do not actually make babies, but that women do through a 9 month process, and that if a woman chooses to interrupt that process, there will not be a baby. Which is pretty conclusive proof that men don’t make babies. Which directly contradicts the misogynist belief that only men are capable of really doing jobs worth doing."

Damn YES! ..plus it puts lie to the idea that a creator god is male. And, explains why the pagans worshiped the Goddess (now: ‘mother nature’).

This is SO SO important. A person carrying a pregnancy cannot passively “let it live,” they have an active part in nurturing and growing it into a child.
