Sorry, I know in your ask that you sent right after this you stated that you weren’t trying to be rude and I appreciate that, but this is going to be hard for me to answer without me sounding rude.
I was aware when I wrote that sentence that many prolife people think they feel the same way but honestly it doesn’t even compare. Regardless of how nicely or eloquently prolife blogs explain their views, they always always always bring up the same points over and over again. The most prolific one is that they, as you said, “are trying to protect human lives.” And not a single person that I have spoken to has ever given me a decent or even logical explanation as to how they are protecting the lives of pregnant people. Many claim that they care as much about the pregnant person as they do the fetus, but they very clearly don’t if they are trying to make decisions over someone else’s body. And then they argue “but the fetus has a body too!” And yes, of course it does, that’s the entire point of the reproductive process, to make another human body. However, and I think this is the thousandth time I have had to say this, that fetus does not have the power to survive without the aid of another human being’s body. And it doesn’t matter if the fetus is innocent or evil or the lord god almighty, the fetus will never ever ever have the ability to use their body without consent. Your body is the only thing on this earth that is actually yours, and absolutely no one has the right to do anything to your body without your explicit consent.
The above argument is the entire basis for the prochoice movement. Notice how that argument includes every reproductive choice available to pregnant people, including birth, including abortion, including birth control. Being prochoice is the only way to allow for the most inclusive and humane environment to people with the capability to have children. The prochoice movement is the only one that allows for people, actual thinking, feeling people, to have full control over their bodies and live their lives on their own terms.
Now to actually answer your question, I have never, NEVER seen any sort of data or logical reasoning to show that ANYONE’S life would be better without access to safe abortion (and when I say “anyone,” keep in mind that I’m talking about real people that are currently capable of suffering and have a concept of being helpless in making their own decisions over their body - and no, fetuses do not fit into this category). The only possible way that any prolife organization could ever promote it’s cause is by either:
1. ignoring the pregnant person and their choices in favor of a fetus which cannot feel or think in the way that pregnant people definitely can
I am so, so, so, tired of explaining all of this to prolife people because they will always respond with one of those two things, despite all of the facts and data and logic that I throw at them. So yes, I can see why prolifers would think that they are explaining the same things over and over again, except they have never actually made any sense.

i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked
