    I find it interesting that many pro-choice supporters consider an unborn child not to be a living person or a life, unless that life is ended by someone else’s actions without the mother’s consent. For example they don’t consider it murder to kill the unborn baby through an abortion but if I drunk driver wrecked their car into the car of a pregnant woman and the baby dies unborn baby dies, that is considered murder. This is an obvious double standard established for convenience.
