Why abortion is a public issue

And not one of private concern. For example:
Second, there are some acts that are, though interpersonal, matters of mutual consent. They can be considered private, and are thus not a matter for law. Injustice is always done against the unwilling, and so consent vitiates claims of injustice. But here again abortion fails the test of privacy, for abortion is always done without the consent of the human being who suffers most from it, the unborn child.
Obvious stuff, but often ignored.
