Pro-choicer: abortion is the loss of a “distinct life”

By Sarah Terzo

Pro-choice advocate Margaret Olivia Little:

“Even at early stages, human life has a value worthy of respect. Miscarriage or abortion represents a loss. Not just a loss for those with hopes of a child, but the loss of a distinct life that had a good in at least the organismic sense and that was, as it were, on its way to becoming one of us.”

Margaret Olivia Little, “Abortion and the Margins of Personhood” Rutgers Law Journal 39, no. 331 (2008)p. 342.

Nevertheless, Little supports abortion.
