Let me just start by saying that I am pro-choice on grounds that it protects women's health. One of the main rationales for legalizing abortions in the first place was that the illegality of it caused primitve methods to be used, causing sickness and death. The actual rate of abortions is static year to year, and has actually fallen since the 1980's (and the 1950's for that matter).
But I find it sort of contradictory that corporations are granted rights, like free speech etc, while embryos are not considered people.
The way I see it, personhood needs to be taken away from corporations, to reduce their impact on the way that this country and the way that many developing countries are run.
