"Feminists heralded the proliferation of abortion as a tool by which to 'empower' women and give them control over their lives and destinies. But power is being pregnant. Because it gives you control over other people's lives. Embryos and fetuses get you treated like royalty. Not only do people cede the right of way to you; not only do people in line at the ladies' room let you get in front of them; but if the man who impregnated you sticks around for just a few more months, you get to lie on the couch all day and just point to things, and they magically come to you. You just have to say, 'Honey, I think I'm craving a ---,' and the chocolate-banana-peanut-butter milkshake appears in your hand. What can be more powerful?"
