There is no legitimate comparison.
I wish the Republicans were dedicated to defending civil rights - but I know that the democrats are fully committed to ending civil rights.
And no you didn't. You're fallaciously assuming that a fetus is, in fact, a human being -- which, so far, isn't the case. You may think the fetus is a human being, and I may think the fetus is not, but that doesn't make your opinion superior to mine. So it is a stretch to extend treating a human being poorly in the same way as treating a non-human being in the same way.
Doesn't make me feel uncomfortable but your meager attempts are slander won't go unnoticed.
The term you are looking for here is "person," not "human being," which is a legal construct anyway. The fact that a fetus is a "human being" on a biological or genetic basis is undeniable.And no you didn't.

Though... I guess it is worth noting that Southern slave owners tried to justify their actions by claiming that African Americans were neither legal "persons," nor even, in some cases, the same species as their Causasian owners as well.
Dehumanizing their victims makes the dishing out of flagrant abuse easier to stomach for a lot of people, it seems.
