Pro-Choicer: “Helplessly dependent” “fetus then infant” lack identity and existence

By Sarah Terzo

From pro-choice author Robert D Goldstein:

“… The fetus and then infant, utterly and helplessly dependent, lacks an identity and existence apart from its relationship with the mothering one who chooses to care for it.”

Robert D. Goldstein, Mother – Love and Abortion: A Legal Interpretation (Berkeley, California: University Of California Press, 1988) p. 2.

Even born babies, to this pro-abortion author, aren’t really people with identities or existence.
