I find it interesting you refer to the unborn child in the masculine ie. "he" to discuss the childs right to life as opposed to the womans right to "self-ownership".

or if she has withdrawn consent

Sorry but I don't believe she gets a Mulligan after she has chosen to create a life. She doen't get to kill another human being because she changed her mind.

I have no idea why you think this is relevant.


Because I believe the childs unalienable right to life outweighs a woman's "right" to change her mind and kill her baby.

Really I think your strongest argument is the case where the woman has never consented to create a life. These cases however involve less than .1% of all abortions if you're speaking of rape and incest. Obviously it would be much higher in the cases of "oops I forgot my pill" or "no don't worry about a condom" but in those cases where pregnancy results from negligence in contraception, I don't believe the child should lose their life due to that negligence.
