[T]o argue that women are unequal without the “right” to abortion is to believe that pregnancy is something that makes women less-than. But pregnancy is something that is both uniquely female and literally as natural as breathing.
To believe that abortion is necessary for women’s equality is to believe that women, without artificial intervention, really are less-than. That a woman, by herself, is a lesser human being.
And that is the essence of misogyny.
