The focus was always on the mother. but because that is tricky, they shift it to the absolute of the baby instead: black or white. Yes or no. And when this theory is interjected by reality, they create 'exceptions'.
Without seeing (?) that start to end, they have never considered from the baby's point of view, as they purportedly claim.
So what you have are two sides arguing on unequal grounds. Pro life thinks it's arguing from the baby's right. Pro-choice thinks it's arguing for a woman's right.
Both sides do not see the actual complexity: that abortion is actually about the weighing of the value of one life over another.
And that is the actual controversy.
