The unborn, as in those not even conceived, they are not real people, stopping them from existing is not exterminating anything. You can't exterminate nothingness.
See your position is based on a morality question of when life begins. At birth or at conception.
Basing this type of position on how a person thinks / perceives is a non starter and will never work in the manner you think it will. Does it include perfectly healthy people who are in comas? Car accidents? Genetic disease that hit after 50 years of life?
The Nazis made the exact same argument in their Eugenics program and if we look solely at the thought process it started out specific and then branched out to suit the needs of the state to control the people. This started out as their T-4 program, which murdered people with mental disorders, genetic defects etc and spiraled into something that should never be repeated.
We fought 1 world war that cost the live of more than 50 million people, with a large chunk of that revolving around the murder of certain individuals whom the Nazi state decided were subhuman.
I am not the best person to debate this with as I vehemently oppose the ability of the state to decide who lives and who dies based solely the morality of people in power. Any argument to the contrary tells me we didnt learn a fu**ing thing from World War 2.
