This is the one simultaneously simple and profound reason why babies must have access to birth; because if a baby does not have dominion over their own existence then he or she is not a free person. If sentient, sane babies are made to die against their will – whether through poisoning or dismembering – then they do not enjoy ANYTHING. Instead they are beholden to others, to the moralism and diktat of those who presume to know better than they will what should become of their bodies, minds and existence. The right to life is essential to every other right as death is final. The right to be born is sovereign.
