I am making the case that reproduction is not universally good. Survival is the biological imperitive, and if reproducing conflicts with survival, most animals will choose not to reproduce. It is not "aberrant." It's something most perfectly typical organisms can and will do in bad situations.
Yeah. That's pretty much what it's about.Put in other terms, if children developed outside of the mother, then most likely, there would be no legal termination of that development. The ONLY argument which supports abortion is that it happens inside a woman's body. If it doesn't, it's just killing a developing child. There's no support for that. And even if there were, it certainly would not be the mother's choice alone, because it would not be a choice about her body.
So no, pregnancy and having offspring are not the same thing.
Not at all. Convincing a mare to abort is super-easy. All you have to do is not let her screw a bunch of other stallions after she concieves.There are always exceptions. But they're just that, exceptions, not the rule.
