13-year-old rape and incest victim would have been out of luck under Texas' new abortion law

A few years ago, a pro-choice science fiction author named Patrick S. Tomlinson challenged anti-choicers about their priorities when it came to protecting human life.

He set up a straightforward thought experiment in which one is asked to make a snap value judgment about the competing needs of a 5-year-old child and a box of embryos. On the one hand, you can protect the life of the child. Or, if you’re a “pro-life” warrior, you can protect the “lives” of a thousand unborn embryos.

The argument went viral.
