Consequently, when women seek to terminate preg- 20 Breaking the Abortion Deadlock nancy, abortion is viewed as the stopping of a woman's giving activity to a fetus— that is, as a woman's refusal to sacrifice herself for the benefit of potential life. This book, however, asks us to imagine the policy consequences that accrue when we stretch the way we depict pregnancy to include recognition of how the fetus takes a woman's body, if it makes her pregnant without consent. Abortion, accordingly, then becomes the way a woman stops the taking of her body and liberty by a fetus.

It is what the fetus does to a woman that justifies her right to terminate that condition, as well as the state's obligation to assist her to the degree that it provides protection to others against nonconsensual intrusion by private parties. It is how we think about pregnancy, therefore, not merely how we think about the fetus, that justifies abortion. 49 This book illuminates why women are justified in aborting a fetus based on what the fetus does. By so doing, this book answers the position taken by Justices Rehnquist's and Scalia's criticism that the current constitutional basis for the right to an abortion fails to address the central issue: the destruction of the fetus.
