Absolutely true. There are no rights you can give the fetus without taking rights away from the woman.This is why I feel that the only ethical stance on abortion is that there should be no laws regulating it. Let each woman decide what rights she wants to cede to the fetus. Anything else is oppression.

So id argue she has the right to smoke but may be liable later.

Why is this situation any different from an abortion?Her Body Her Right Her Choice Messy Bun US Flag Pro Choice T-Shirt Seems to me in both cases the child has no rights over the mother so why does the mother have to sacrifice anything for someone that’s not a person. So why does she have to quit smoking?Because the baby will be born with defects? But until it’s a baby it’s not a person, so you can’t stop mothers from smoking, just like I can’t use the fact that a baby will become a person in your eyes if you didn’t abort it.

You would probably say “but it’s not a person yet” and I would repeat what you said here for the smoking example. If you say you can’t smoke because it will be a person than i will sway you can’t abort because it will be a person.Her Body Her Right Her Choice Messy Bun US Flag Pro Choice T-Shirt What’s the difference? Abortions cost 500 dollars, I’m assuming a women who smokes during her pregnancy isn’t the type of person to have that much money lying around.
