“I've noticed everyone who is for abortion has already been born” (Ronald Reagan). How would you feel if you never got the chance to experience anything? Or never got the chance to live?

Saying that the fetus isn’t alive is like saying that an adult was never a baby because that person is fully developed now. It is the same thing when you are saying that the fetus isn’t alive just because the baby hasn’t fully developed....
