“the right to life cannot be granted or denied by government.” - George W. Bush

Let's examine the validity of that statement.

Before this ban:
Fetus' right to life: Not granted or denied by government.
Mother's right to life: Not granted or denied by government.

After ban:
Fetus' right to life: Granted by government.
Mother's right to life: Denied by government.

Don't get me wrong, I think this practice is a horrific solution to a problem. But, in some cases, it's the only solution and is, in my opinion, better than a mother dying or becoming severely disabled, or an unwanted child being raised in an unloving and resentful home. It must be an amazingly difficult choice to make, but it must remain a choice.
