The “my body, my choice” argument is one of the most frequently used in the abortion debate.

At the moment of conception, all 46 chromosomes are already in place. That means the baby’s hair color, eye color, height, and countless other features have already been determined.
Does a pregnant woman have four arms, four legs, two hearts, two sets of lungs, and four feet? Obviously not.
There are two bodies present: the woman’s body and the body of the child.
