Sometimes I wonder if humanity is really in some 'it isn't really that far from the stoneage' type ways of thinking.

Based on my opinion and your post, there are already people here in the present who notice the barbaric ways of our society.
Of course women should have individual sole authority over their own reproductive rights. Even in a marriage situation. It should always be their choice. Even if they want 1000 abortions.
Now that being said, i also believe that life starts at conception/fertilization. Because thats when it starts. Consciousness starts sometime after brain development, but life begins at fertilization. I don't think that life requires consciousness. And i don't think we should change the definition of life or personhood just so that it fits with our messed up legal system. I understand that people have a right to life under our constitution but i think a woman's choice should supersede because i believe that if she is being forced against her will to carry a baby to term, by a law or by the father, then her body is actually being hijacked/kidnapped and used as life support "against her will" being the main point. That mother is also protected from these things under the constitution and she is allowed to use deadly force to protect herself. So they don't have to change the constitution.
