Even if one could magically rid all misogyny from the world, there would still be a basis for an anti-choice movement: the belief or the conclusion that nascent human life deserves legal protection.  This proposition needs no misogyny to originate or gain widespread assent.  And assent it has. 

So unless you can show conclusively that this specific assent historically originated from and continues to originate from misogyny, then there’s no rational sense to think a desire to demean women explains anti-choicers. 

Anything less and you’re at best overgeneralizing and almost surely wrong.
