“If we want to end these unjust and inhumane arrests and forced interventions on pregnant women, we need to stop focusing only on the abortion issue and start working to protect the personhood of pregnant women. We should be able to work across the spectrum of opinion about abortion to unite in the defense of one basic principle: that at no point in her pregnancy should a woman lose her civil and human rights.”

Neither is worse because both are constitutionally insane ways to operate. Take any ‘choice’ away ANY choice and what you have is…… well. today, really.
